What is the Adventurers Backpack?

The Castles & Crusades Adventurers Backpack represents the largest expansion of the Castles & Crusades RPG since its inception with what is essentially a second Players Handbook and a deck of Equipment Cards.

The Castle Keepers Guide delivered a voluminous amount of gaming material to the CK. The Codex of Aihrde and Players Guide to Aihrde brought the world of Aihrde to life in amazing detail for all players.

But now The Adventurers Backpack is presented to the player with content to match -- if not exceed -- that of the original Players Handbook.

New classes include:  archer, avatar, oathsworn, magic user, thief, urban ranger, primal druid, milesian bard and more!

New spells, for all classes whether in the ABP or the PH, based on an old twist. Equipment revisited. Other notes and observations all designed, we hope, to speed up your game. With the main game book come the Equipment Cards, all designed to speed things up and make game play all that easier.

Funding Goals: This project has already funded and will appear as a 150+ page full color hardback book. If we hit $26,000 then we'll expand the Equipment Deck by 2 Joker Cards, these will be signed and personalized with boons and discounts on them (Kickstarter backers only). $59.00+. 

Never  Played C&C? Download Under the Blood Red Moon for a free copy of one of our Open and Play books. This one has all the rules you need to play written into the adventure. It also doubles as an Amazing Adventures Open and Play as well.

The Dice Bag

 Equipment Cards Front and back.

Here is an update video that explains a little about the backpack from the $200 level!

New to Castles & Crusades? You can purchase the whole game down below in the Ad On section! And if you request it we can make arrangements with you to ship the game as soon as the Kickstarter closes and your pledge is confirmed!

Early Bird info: Brett Bolan dove in at the last minute and closed out the early bird backers with pledge #172! Trollzah!

More on the Adventurers Backpack

The Adventurers Backpack first appeared in the C&C Black Box on the 40th anniversary of Dungeons and Dragons. In it we presented some new spells, and some new classes. This was only a teaser for future endeavors.

The future has arrived. Stephen Chenault finalized the content for the ABP September, 2016 and enlisted Peter Bradley to begin working on the art. What the book holds, and promises, is both a massive expansion of player-based content (classes, spells and more) as well as a new look at equipment and with this new look comes a new tool: the equipment cards.

What is in the Adventurers Backpack?

Back in the day, we played AD&D like there was no tomorrow, often 2-3 times a week. When the AD&D Unearthed Arcana came out, it gave our game a rush of adrenaline. The new content…classes, spells, equipment, etc…offered just what we needed, just when we needed it. That is the goal of the Adventurers Backpack. Castles & Crusades has been out for 12 years, and as good as it is, it could use a jolt of adrenaline.

The Adventures Backpack will include the following

  • 13 new classes
  • New Non-derivative spells
  • A new approach on counter spells and canceling spells
  • 34 different backpacks offerings an easier and faster way to equip
  • A fresh easier to use approach to Unarmed Combat
  • Magic Items for classes who have few to choose from
  • A look at the Archetype
  • The End Game, why old characters never die

A note on the spells. The spells presented in the ABP will be non-derivative spells (all new, not based on others) and many will follow the level-growth concept that drives the SIEGE Engine. In other words, there will be far more spells that spell-casters can use at lower levels, but that grow in power as the caster grows in power.This gives the spell-caster far spells to use when they begin, making play much more enjoyable.

What are the Equipment Cards?

During the creation process equipping a character can be a time-consuming task. To speed the process up, the ABP will include 34 different backpack options that include basic and expert dungeon backpacks, basic and expert overland backpacks and class related backpacks. Each backpack comes equipped with what your character needs to plunge into a world of adventure.

For ease of access, we’ll supply a deck of cards (34 right now) with all the backpacks and their contents set before you. All you need to do is buy weapons and armor, and a backpack and your character is equipped and ready to go! There will be multiple of some cards, allowing for repetition between players.
