Do you run C&C with the flavor of a certain D&D edition?

Matt Finch stated years ago that he wished for Swords & Wizardry to come as close as possible to a 'Rosetta Stone' for old-school D&D gaming. I believe it works in such a manner wonderfully. Of course, there are three distinct iterations of the rules to do that, so... It has also long seemed to me t...
