So, I was wandering around the Troll Lord Games website and I notice that the Castles & Crusades 7th Print Player's Handbook was free in PDF format. I literally had a Holy Shit moment, so I snagged it up.
There are actually two different covers available, both for free.
Also for free is the Castles & Crusades Quickstart, covering the core for classes through sixth level.
Through the end of the month, the Castles & Crusades basic ruleset for Fantasy Grounds is available for free.
or wherever you listen to your podcast collection.
