Scott Thorne over at ICV2 has an interesting bit of news; apparently the good folks over at Troll Lord Games are planning an introductory set for Castles & Crusades. The whole article is interesting as well, with Scott musing on the utility of such introductory sets, and bemoaning their relative lack on game store shelves today. Definitely worth reading for that, but here’s the money quote for the C&C fans:
I am keeping my fingers crossed that Troll Lords Games comes out with the product they described in our discussion; a boxed set with quick start rules for Castles & Crusades, pre-made characters, a short adventure and maps for $10 to $15. That will give me two great value intro sets to use to move customers further into their respective product lines, with the hope of more to come from other companies. A store owner can wish.
Hey, I’ve got all the C&C rulebooks (some in several copies and/or iterations) and that’s something I’d wish for, too.
