Overview

Worlds of Epic Adventure

Beyond the comforts of home lie worlds of adventure. Here the brave take up sword and shield, bring sorcery to bare, call upon eldritch powers that only the wise dare use, or slip through the shadows to tread gloried paths of danger. With grim resolve, adventurers plunge into the maelstrom of uncertainty to plunder the dragon's horde. They track the wastelands and wilderness and creep into the dark, hidden places of the world to arrest the monstrous foe of his treasure. These are adventurers, bold and brave, heroes of renown. These are the characters of Castles & Crusades.

About The 4th Printing
This is our fourth printing and represents the first real substantive changes to the game... but nothing so much as to make earlier printings obsolete. In the 4th Printing you will find a revised Barbarian. The Barbarian lacked proper balance in the game; we've worked hard to address these issues. Also, the Illusionist class is given a might jolt with over 45 new spells added to their spell roster. You'll get far more traction out of these spells and make illusion a real part of your game. Also we are touching up the Monk class, changing the presented material to better reflect different styles of hand to hand warriors.

    A Wonderful Blend of Old and New!

    This game takes a different spin on Dungeons & Dragons. It utilizes the D20 mechanic for most of it's dice rolling, but also hearkens back to earlier versions of the game. If you learned to play D&D before third edition it will feel very familiar to you. Gone are things like attacks of opportunity, feats and huge skill lists. It takes a novel approach to the game using 'primary attributes' to help the Castle Keeper decide whether or not your character succeeds with his task. Any group of players with much experience can make up characters out of the player's handbook in about 15 minutes. The Monsters & Treasures book is helpful, but not necessary. If you have any monster books from previous editions of D&D you can put them back into use with only minor conversions. As a game master I found the game very freeing. I no longer need to spend large portions of my preparation time coming up with huge stat blocks for my npc's. My player's and I enjoy being able to role play without die rolls for everything. I also found that combat went at a much quicker pace, there were no long pauses or interruptions with attacks of opportunity or players looking over their long list of feats and options trying to decide what to do. This is a great game, and the authors are game designers to watch!
