Castles & Crusades Unboxing

Based on recommendations from more than one friend and reviews I had been reading on the Internet, (or “tubes” as we say in Alaska) I ordered three Castles & Crusades books from  Troll Lord Games . The Players Handbook, Monsters & Treasure and Castle Keepers Guide. I have heard nothing but good things about this game and I wanted to make sure…

Castles & Crusades: My First Crunchy Bits

There’s a really odd thing I had realized. The last time I ran a Dungeons & Dragons game or any of its kindred was Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. Sure, I’ve played each edition since then but I haven’t ran it. I’ve been running all sorts of other games but not D&D. The good thing about

Quick Review – Aihrde: Cradle of the World Map

The Aihrde: Cradle of the World Map published by Troll Lord Games is a beautifully rendered map generated for the Castles & Crusades world, but great for any campaign, or just to look at yearningly.  Seriously, this is one very nice looking map – suitable for hanging on a wall, laminating on top of your gaming table or any other number of …
