Crypts and Things (C&T) is a Swords and Sorcery Roleplaying game based upon the Old School Rules of the 70s/80s. It also draws upon the British fantasy games and game-books of that period to bring a distinctly dark and dangerous feel to the game.

  1. This is a great system. If I wasn't running AS&SH as my go-to version of D&D, this would probably be what I would be running, besides AD&D.
