This week we bring you a full episode review of our favorite game of the season: Castles and Crusades. We have both had a long love affair with C&C, and played many a campaign. We’ve modifed the system on occasion as well as adapted and created settings for it. Mostly we talk about our love for the product, but we go over the incredibly rules-light engine in some detail.
Episode Nineteen is brought to you by all of you awesome fans! We can’t wait for Season Two! Be sure to tell us about your excitement on Facebook, Twitter, our website, our Forums, or with email! Season Two suggestions are always welcome.

Keep it up folks, we enjoy reading your comments and be sure to tell some friends about us! If you’ve never emailed or commented, now’s a good time.
The Forge, where Joe used to lurk.
Joe’s thread: Fuck Game Balance
Also, we said that we used an issue of The Crusader for rolling magic items. We said it was 19 or 25 or whatever, but it turns out the article is in Crusader #8.
Someone please email to remind us to post a link to our C&C magic system, since the old website Joe used for inspiration is apparently gone.
Joe confused Feudal Japan with Rokugan…Dammit.
