Description Edit | History

Originally available only as part of the Castles and Crusades Boxed Set (Collectors Edition), it is now also available as a free PDF download from the publishers (See below for link). While the website implies this is the same product as in the boxed set, the PDF has been significantly edited with a different formatting, page numbers, and some added material.

From the publishers website:

For 4-6 characters, levels 1-3, introductory adventure!

This is an introductory adventure for those playing Castles & Crusades. The module has been designed to allow for the players and Castle Keeper alike to begin using the Castle & Crusades rules in a fairly non-demanding game setting. The goal is to familiarize the Castle Keeper and players with the basic rules and their applications while undertaking an exciting adventure.

The adventure is also designed for modularity and expansion. Many of the encounters, monsters, settings and non-player characters can be removed from the context of this adventure and placed within those of your own making.

Further, should the players or Castle Keeper care to continue with the adventure and follow its thematic development, the follow-on module, Assault on Blacktooth Ridge and The Slag Heap is now available. Several references and avenues for continuing the adventure are mentioned within the text, but the Castle Keeper must devise the most meaningful manner in which to carry this out.

More Information Edit | History

The first printing of The Rising Knight was available in the Castles and Crusades Boxed Set (Collectors Edition). The most notable feature of the 1st printing was the absence of a third prime for every human in the adventure. All subsequent versions of the adventure correct this.

After the first printing of the Castles & Crusades Players Handbook was released, Troll Lord Games released The Rising Knight as a free PDF. There are in fact two versions of the PDF. The original version of the PDF is the one pictured in this entry. The current version of the PDF on the Troll Lord Games website is an excerpt from the Castles & Crusades Condensed rule book. The two PDFs differ in layout and page count. The original version of the PDF is 25 pages long with a full title page and larger text. The current version is only 14 pages long with a monochrome cover that uses the same artwork but with a notation of it being "Volume 3 of Three Booklets". The text in the current version is also smaller and the page numbers start at 100.

With the release of the 4th printing of the Castles & Crusades Players Handbook, Troll Lord Games has printed The Rising Knight once again, but this time using the "4th Crusade" trade dress that Troll Lord Games has adopted for their titles. The title page of this new printing notes that it is a second printing, but is not listed as such here on RPGGeek. This is because the first printing was only available in the Castles and Crusades Boxed Set (Collectors Edition) and was never available separately, except as the aforementioned PDF.
