Castles & Crusades Rune Lore

Watermarked PDF


Runes of Old

In the crumbled ruins of ancient cities are tombs and crypts where dead kings lie. In towered halls lay a sorcerer’s forgotten lore, writ upon tablets of stone and vellum scrolls. In dungeons dark are threads of time, spun from gods and monsters.

All these echo the secrets of a time long forgotten whose faint memories are etched in runes of power and glory, curiosities, or riddles best left to the dead who house them. They are passed by all but a few, the rune marks.

Rune Marks

There are those who possess knowledge of these etchings, these runes of power. With booted feet and steel in hand they tread the wilds and plunder ancient holds, unraveling the knot of secret lore and mastering its eldritch might. These are the Rune Marks. For them the runes open the hidden deeps of the world's mysteries and the treasures of gods are made bare.

Rune Lore

With Rune Lore we present a new class, the rune mark, over 40 magical runes and everything needed to integrate runic magic into your Castles & Crusades game. Included within Rune Lore are over a dozen short adventures, a host of new magic  items, new monsters and a campaign setting, the Gottland, to house it all.

Game On!

So, just got book and have been absorbing, but then realized that you outlined a relatively large number (8 or 9?) of schools of rune ... but then only provide for 2 schools and a few more in the book... What about all of those others. The introduction seemed to lead that the work on those schools was well under way before the conversion to C&C from d20 had finished. This book has been around for a while, are we going to see the other schools of runes.

Very interested. Looking forward to any response I can get.

Raymond W -- You are right, when books are this large, the preview doesn't give you a flavor of the book. I've changed it to the first 20 pages. Thanks for letting me know! Tim

When preview = TOC, I never buy anymore. I need to see a sample of the content to know if I'm interested.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
