Coming from a reader and role-playing game enthusiast.

Notes: Elements of S&S

  1. Short stories
  2. Not epic in scope
  3. Low world-building
  4. Fate of world not threatened
  5. Heroes are trying to make ends meet
  6. Heroes less altruistic
  7. Heroes are violent, flippant

Sub-genre: Sword And Planet

Lots of nudity, racism, inequality, strong white men, so not for social justice wimps.
