Games From the Basement - Chivalry & Sorcery 3rd Edition
I literally had no ideas that I owned Chivalry & Sorcery 3rd Edition. Some of the games I rediscover I go "oh yeah, I remember this. I read the first dozen pages then put it down" or some such. I have no such memories of C&S.
Heck, even the binding looks like the book was never opened.
This is really irking me, as it seems like it mysteriously appeared on it's own on a shelf, and I know there's no way that could have happened. I am glad that I didn't pick up a copy off of Ebay last year, as I'd now have 2 copies of a game I never read.
Heck, I opened up and tried to read C&S 2e after grabbing that on Ebay. Not saying I got far, but I did get farther than I ever attempted with 3e ;)
Glancing through it now, I can see it is an extremely crunchy system. Lots of charts, lots of text, lots of numbered sections. There was a time when I might have been able to absorb the information in this rulebook and potentially run a game. That time in my life has been lost to me.
Might I be able to play in a game of C&S? Sure, so long as C&S was second nature to the GM, but that goes for any system. A knowledgable GM makes up for any deficiencies in his players.
