Castles & Crusades -- Mystical Companions

Watermarked PDF

The book of Mystical Companions, guides, divine spirits, totems, special mounts and heroic weapons.

Offering a fresh approach to an age-old gamer’s adage, Mystical Companions expands the concept of the familiar beyond the established wizard’s pet. Herein each class is presented with its own unique path toward gaining a familiar and what form that familiar might take. From the hero’s weapon, the bard’s muse and the rogue’s own haunting shadow, Mystical Companions offers a whole new venue for players to expand their existing games and add unheard of dimensions to any class.

This book turns the concept of familiars on its ear and ushers in a whole new dimension of game play.

Mystical Companions includes a complete index of familiars and monstrous companions as well a new approach to dragon subdual and how to become a Dragon Rider!

So, what's the difference between original Book of Familiars, and can you explain why did you guys diminished the number of pages on this reprint?

Now it says its a reprint of your book of familiars which torns me apart by making me decide what books to select. Without enough previews or possibly a good review. I wouldn't be sure if I should be okay by just grabbing this book alone. Prior to this knowledge, I was determined to buy the book of familiars also as soon as I have enought budget for it. So could you clear things more up a bit? How your reprint works? And that also says something for the upcoming 7th printing of players guide; I have pdf version of 6th, and cannot shun away the gut's feeling I might have to buy upcoming 7th edition pdf for rules update sake.

If we've previously purchased the original 'Book of Familiars', are we having to purchase this again?
Why not have made it an update instead of a separate product?

Hm, according to the introduction (see preview) you'll need the C&C core rulebooks. Otherwise the description says "5th Edition" in the headline.

Good question, Dani :-).

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.
