Ed Simbalist speaks at lenght on the differences between Chivalry & Sorcery and D&D, and the supremacy of the former.


It is with immense delight that i post today this rare and never before seen letter written long, long ago by Ed Simbalist.

It is no wonder to my readers that i regard Chivalry & Sorcery as the greatest fantasy rpg of all time, so my enthusiasm in having been able to uncover this letter and sharing it with the whole world stems from this fact as well.

In July, 2013 i posted for the first time another letter which was found in the old fanzine named "Underworld Oracle" where Ed Simbalist spoke more or less in the same vein about the abysmal difference existing between his game and Dungeons & Dragons.

Whereas, the letter that i'm publishing today comes from a very old issue of "The Apprentice" fanzine.

For ease of reference i thought to publish all of them together in a single post, so below you will find both of them: my new excavation (taken from "The Apprentice" fanzine), together with the material from my 2013 post.

Awesome. I spent a lot of time trying to find a copy of C&S in the 80's, which when found endlessly fascinated me but was ultimately too much....I settled for DragonQuest and Runequest 2 instead.

I love the passion, even if I cannot echo the sentiment.

Frankly I find almost anything better than D&D.
