Castles & Crusades Monsters & Treasure

Watermarked PDF

4th Printing! This incarnation of the C&C Monsters & Treasure debuts a new look, with more interior art, expanded index and some rules clarifications.

Upon the Edge of Battle Lie the Spoils of Glory

Upon wind-swept battlefields, they seek their glory. With weapons of steel,
stout shields, and sorcery, they drive ever onward, seeking the grandeur of conflict
with creatures of terrible wrath or beasts of legend. In all hours of every day,
they gird themselves for war and struggle, to drive those evil beings of foul
intent to doom and oblivion. But before glory can be obtained, before
fame and riches can be won by these heroes of renown, they must face and
overcome those that would oppose them. Only then do the beasts yield the fruit
of their lives: Ancient scrolls, magic swords, shields of wonder, potions, rings,
wands, and untold wealth in coins, gems, and jewels.

What Lies Herein

Contained within this book is a wealth of information for the
Castle Keeper: 205 monsters, advice on roleplaying monsters, handling
combat with monsters, creating monsters, 200 unique treasures, rules for
awarding treasures and creating magic items.

The Bookmarks in this pdf seem to be nested improperly. All bookmarks seem to fall under the Heading A- or Elf, with Aboleth being the only A- entry, and then all Monsters and letter headings up to E being nestled under Aboleth.

So why is this 87MB and a high-quality PDF while the Players Handbook is still 8MB and a pixelated mess?

A free update to 4th edition! Nice. I'm sure there's not a lot of new monsters or items here, but it's a new edit with more art and a better index, so it's great that you get it for free if you had the older edition. Good work by Troll Lord and by drivethrustuff for their very reliable My Library system. It's easy to take a good system for granted, but there are still not enough websites out there that step in and say "hang on -- you have bought X. You're entitled to X.1 for free.", nor enough gaming companies that don't try to milk you for every buck they can.

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.
