Castles & Crusades is a fantasy role playing game with countless possibilities. It's easy to learn attribute-based rules system allows players to choose among 13 archetypal character classes and 7 races to with which create their characters. Spells, equipment, fast-paced combat rules, and all essential information needed to play a game of Castles & Crusades are in this book.
With Iron Heel the World Grinds Away
Plunge into worlds of fantastic adventure where dragons lie and the undead stalk the shades of your mind's imaginings, where creatures of legend plunder wealth through the horror of their passage. Monsters grim and foul taunt with the ecstasy of gold and glory. Upon the heels of these foes stalk heroes of great might; those who take up sword and shield, who harness eldritch might, those who traverse the narrow corridors in search of sport and those who serve a purpose greater than all the others: Heroes, Freebooters, Mercenaries, and Adventurers.
13 Classes in this core book allow you to play one of the following: fighter, barbarian, bard, cleric, druid, illusionist, assassin, knight, monk, paladin, ranger, rogue or wizard. The follow on book The Adventurers Backpack adds another 14 classes to the mix.
7 Races in the PHB allow you to play the dwarf, elf, gnome, half-elf, halfling, half orc and human. Or if you want demi-human classes check out the Players Guide to Aihrde.
