This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Link please. My copy is falling apart.

EDIT: Probably gonna be deleted as I don't think Pundit allows this per the rules.


Oops! Didn't mean to offend so I won't post a link.

If your copy is falling apart, it might simply be that the glue has aged and cracked. If the pages are all there and in good shape then a bookbinder(*) can easily reglue them. Bindings are ephemeral things and need to be replaced from time to time.

I realize that C&S is a bit of a niche game these days. Indeed, most would say that it always was. Neverthless, if you want to relive your 1970s RPG youthful vigour then you might like to know that I'm selling by 1st edition rules, in good condition, on eBay.

Huh, I think I heard about that, wonder if it's still available somewhere.


I have copies of both. They look about identical. I will look through them later on this evening and let you know of any significant differences.
Blackmoor grew from a single Castle to include, first, several adjacent Castles (with the forces of Evil lying just off the edge of the world to an entire Northern Province of the Castle and Crusade Society's Great Kingdom.

The authors of C&S, especially Andy Staples are intolerant in your face SJWs who preach incessantly about diversity in character creation and accuse people of being against diversity.  They also insinuate that their fan base is full of white supremists.  Andy Staples is a commissar of political correctness and diversity virtue signaling who aggressively pummels people with the topic until they have a headache.

Hi all,

I have been playing C&S 2nd edition since 1983 when it first came out. I own EVERY book created for the game system up to and including 5th edition. I also own and run the old C&S forum https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/chivalrysorcery/index.php

I have been playing as I said 2nd edition since 1983 (37 years) 25 years of which has been played using the HARN setting which C&S perfectly suits. I also know Steve Turner, the owner of 5th edition.

We decided to keep playing 2nd edition as for us it best suited our style of play. The Blow system we love and the design of the Magic system we also enjoy etc. Everything about 2nd edition is just perfect for us.

I am contactable by my email address if there are those out there who still play C&S and want to keep in contact with other like minded players

I've always wanted to track down a physical copy of the first edition of C&S, I'm not sure I'd play it as but it looks great for idea mining.

I have two, and both bindings are pretty much done...need to get them rebound somewhere. You need a magnifying glass to read the text, though. Totally worth the effort, hard to believe how much information they crammed into this game.

I'd recommend contacting the local library to see if they have the contact number of a good book binder. Usually the larger ones have a guy or two they can recommend (or at least that has been my experience in the past).
