Sword and Sorcery

The rules are as follows:
-Pre-modern technology, were battles are fought by bladed weapons and magic and myths are real (sorry Flash Gordon!).
-Fantastic setting, perhaps inspired by historic time periods but without actual events or places (sorry The 13th Warrior!).
-No epic army clashes, no world-wide conflicts, just a bunch of characters engaged in a local struggle (sorry The Lord of the Rings!).
