Let the Adventure Begin!!

Crypts & Creatures was designed as an easy-to-learn trimmed-down version of the most popular fantasy RPG. C&C can be used to introduce absolutely new players to role playing games using easy-to-learn rules that provide a smooth transition into the larger more complicated games. C&C can also be played by experts and experienced players as quick-fun/experimental games.

Have you ever wanted to run an experimental or quick game? Ancient Greek setting with the players as demi-gods? Evil campaign with the forces of Good and the agents (Paladins)of the God of Light everywhere? An all one-class campaign: The Thieves' Guild, Master Everrhas's Wizards College? All of this can be done with Crypts & Creatures! Live the Adventure!

+ Easy for GM's to adapt to and players to learn.

+ Simple system based from the SRD.

+ Only 21 pages of rules.

+ Adaptable, most supplements (generic or mainstream) can be added with little or no conversion.

Thank you for noticing the exporting-conversion error. I have double checked the original files, and no information was left out. It was just a doubling error. I'll correct it as soon as possible

Page 28 & 30 are blank. Page 29 & 31 are the same (OGL).
Also, what amendments were made for the update yesterday (errors?)

A slight formatting change so the book as a whole was easier to read, and not so scrunched together.

Okay, I think I fixed it. But even when I click on the preview, its resolution is kinda small. I'm not sure if that is my fault, or just how previews the products.

The 'Quick Preview' is working, but the 'Full Size Preview' is not. It does however, work quite well on your two other titles. So, I think you might have missed one of the fiddly bits when you added this one. Maybe... dunno.

From a cursory look at your Denizens... book it appears you played a bit of Microlite20? So much creativity happening on that forum. Good stuff.

Anyway, I hope you get this preview thing sorted so I can check out your core book.

I'll fiddle with the preview. One way or another I'll get it to work.

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.
