Castles & Crusades: Martial Artist Class


This PDF features a new class for Castles & Crusades, the Martial Artist, designed as an alternative to the ascetic monk. The class is designed to emulate the classic non-monastic martial artists, from kensai (sword saints) to gangland street fighters to noble samurai. The class provides a simple framework for all the core abilities needed for a dedicated martial artist, and provides dozens of ideas for additional optional abilities based on martial arts weapon styles; the exact framework of special abilities is left wide open for the individual Judge to adjudicate based on her own campaign. If you want a character that kicks butt and takes names with open fist, bare chest, and a pair of ‘chucks, this is the class for you!

The Martial Artist class abilities include:

Move Silently
Sixth Sense
Unarmed Attack
Unarmored Defense
Weapon Focus
Stunning Attack
Ki Strike
Battle Mind
Fist of Fury

The PDF also includes new weapons for use with Castles & Crusades:


The new Martial Artist class can be used with any Castles & Crusades campaign!

NOTE: The new Martial Artist class will be included in the forthcoming Wilderlands of High Adventure: Guide to the Wilderlands of the Mystic Realms product (AGP03001), where it will be expanded upon and considered a core class for that region. If you plan on acquiring that product at a later date, you do not need this PDF.

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.
