Castles & Crusades (Spartan 300 Collector's Edition)

Description

1974 was an eventful year. The embattled President of the United States, Richard Nixon, resigned; The Republic of India tested its first atomic bomb; Patty Hearst was kidnapped by some crazy army of militant hippies; Muhammid Ali knocked out George Foreman in the 8th round and Ed Sullivan died. But more than that it was the year that saw the first publication of what would become the world's most famous and lasting role playing game.

The game appeared in a small brown box. The cover art was an adhesive sheet affixed on the box's lid. Within were three small digest-sized brown books. These were the heart and soul of the game that would eventually spawn three massive expansions, innumerable spin off role playing games and create the foundation for a hobby that would entertain generations of young and old alike.

That was 1974. Thirty years later. Thirty years. For thirty years we have wandered the worlds of our own imagining, fought monsters and plundered forgotten holds of fabulous treasure. We have sat for countless hours, swilling soda or beer, eating chips, pretzels and the gods know what else while our characters languished and died or overcame in triumph. No matter what game you play, this is what it was, and still is, all about.

Castles & Crusades™ promises to be the latest expansion of this wonderful game. And to celebrate the coming release of the Castles & Crusades™ core books and this most auspicious anniversary we are happy to announce the release of the Castles & Crusades™ Digest Size Boxed Set. This is a limited edition only. The first 300 will be signed and numbered.

This box set will include condensed versions of the main books and rules.

Each box contains the following: 1 players handbook (5x5 x 8x5), 1 monsters and treasure guide (5x5 x 8x5), 1 adventure book (5x5 x 8x5), 1 set of Zocchi dice (old school, YEAH BABY), 1 crayon, 1 err, box (6x9).
