Save For Half podcast # 7: “Castles & Crusades by Troll Lord Games”

This is it, the granddaddy of all the Old School Revival games! Castles & Crusades, published in 2003, has a loyal fan base that has put the PHB on its 7th printing, showing robust life in a field now crammed with retro-clones. Though C&C isn’t a retro-clone per se, it was designed to emulate OS Fantasy RPGs in a way that Gary Gygax would be happy to write for. Sit down and enjoy as your Save for Halflings crack open this veteran game and see what ticks!

No Mikes were harmed in the making of this episode, no matter what you hear.

This was a good show guys! I always feel like C&C doesn't get spoken about much. I own it, but have never played or ran it myself. It has always looked like a good system, but I've never felt really drawn to it. I'm not sure why exactly. I'll need to go through it again.
