Freebie Castles & Crusades Player's Handbook

Freebie Castles & Crusades Player's Handbook
This isn't so much a "Free GM Resource" but a straight-up freebie from Stephen Chenault of Troll Lord Games (TLG). He posted a rather long, but good, post on Facebook today about the state of TLG and their ability to continue forward with their Kickstarters and printing.

1st off, Kudos for making the decision to source locally when possible. I think a lot of people will be looking to do so when this Coronovirus Crisis ends......but I think most will just go back to doing whatever is cheapest.

2nd, now is the perfect time to start your family on RPGs. Add a little time-consuming fun to the family table.

3rd, We ALL have our preferred game systems and for me Castles & Crusades is not one of them. Why? Honestly I've never tried it. Now I can......my point though is that while YOU might have a preferred system, they all have their strengths and weaknesses and if you want to introduce your family to RPGs, you might need to try something different.

Basically, pick up a free copy of the Castles & Crusades Player's Handbook. Try it for yourself and try it for your family! You know the drill.....click on the post's lead-in graphic or use this link.

FGM Note: The free Players Handbook is technically all you actually need to run a game of Castles & Crusades. There are more books you can get, but to start you can get by with this one tome. It doesn't have monsters, but in a pinch you can use pretty much any D&D/AD&D monster block and remember they get a +1 to their attack role for every hit dice they have (which is detailed in the Players Handbook). I know it isn't free, but digital copies of many C&C Adventures are $7....
