Thanks to the efforts of David Macauley, Nicolas Dessaux's old school fantasy game, Epées & Sorcellerie is now available to those unschooled in la belle langue. I reviewed the original over two years ago and liked it very much. It's not exactly a retro-clone, as the term is usually employed, since it's not attempting to faithfully reproduce the mechanics of a previous game. However, E&S is strongly inspired by LBB-only OD&D with a goodly dash of Chainmail to boot and so ought to be of interest to many readers of this blog.
