Castles & Crusades Players Handbook by Davis Chenault, Mac Golden, Stephen Chenault, Peter Bradley
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.
