I personally consider this to be one of the core books for Castles and Crusades. This is a must at my table, especially during character creation since all we have to do is take the provided equipment lists and subtract the provided cost from our starting coin. It also includes encumbrance values (for those that use it). The extra character classes are also a great bonus, with the archer being one of my favorites.

Hello, I have read a most of the book and I ma exhilirated by most of what I see. Still, there are two things that bothered me. First - there is no table for the new classes as supporting classes in "class-and-a-half" schemes and it could be helpful and fun. Second, we get one new rune codex, but there are five more. Can we expect them in the future "Adventurer's Spellbook"? Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

Would it be possible to get a PDF that has had OCR applied to it? Those of us working in the digital/VTT realm need to be able to cut and paste text from time to time (plus other PDFs from TLG have it). Thanks.

Agreed. I won't purchase a pdf rulebook that isn't searchable. That is a main reason why I buy PDFs.

That's a proper preview! You get the table of contents and a decent look at some of the classes. Too many publishers put the first few pages of their product up as preview, which usually only covers the cover, credits, and table of contents leaving potential customers with no better idea of what they're getting.

this is a tempting purchase ...

My first reaction to the Arcane Thief was positive. I think I would houserule that the class could "smell" memorized spells and siphon them away from casters while they were distracted or asleep. Thieves tend to congregate near the objects worth stealing: wizard towers, colleges, abbeys, scroll purveyors. Places that probably have laws proscribing the casting of certain kinds of spells. The Arcane Thief, for the most part, would find his quarry limited to minor illusions or other "subtle spells". He's pretty much just going around wrecking kid's parties or other magically enhanced entertainment.

But if the Arcane...See more

Is this like a "Player's Handbook" or is it an addition to the Castle and Crusades Player book? (It read like one could play the game with only this?) The content looks great and although in color, it's not the brown on brown font that us old guys can't read.
Looks Good.

Hi Joseph! No, it can't be used to play the game. You could however get any one of the quick start rules that are free and then use this and play the game, though you would be missing out on the majority of spells as those are in the Players Handbook. Hope this helps! ~ Tim

The sizing on the pdf is wrong. Should either display full size or have the ability to edit. I'm not happy with the product.

Hi Tim O. I'm sorry, I guess I don't know exactly what you mean? It won't display full size on a tablet or a computer? I'm just trying to gather information so I can let our layout guy know. We did just put up a new version of it, is that the one you are talking about? Let us know and we can try and fix the issue. You can write here, or you can email me at productsupport @ trolllord (dot) com. Thanks! Tim

The page displays fine, until you choose one of the bookmarks. It then shrinks to 57%. That format is not correct. I shouldn't have to resize the page just because I clicked a bookmark.

Needs a full size preview.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for pointing that out. Usually that is set by default but for some reason it was not on this one. I have set both a quick and full size preview for it now, but if you do not see it, please let me know. Thanks! Tim

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.
