About


Rundown #6: Now to unleash the chariots! The ancient Egyptians relied upon chariots as the center of their battle formations. Its time they are brought to your table in proper style! $12,000 gets us there. Just a few more backers!

Castles & Crusades Codex Egyptium: Brian Young has delivered us the sixth in the Mythos Series, bringing to life the world of Ancient Egypt. From a history of that desert land, to the mythologies surrounding its creation and the gods who carved it from the ether, the realms they ruled and the monsters they commanded. Each god is explored in detail. What’s more this is the first of the Mythos series to be re-envisioned and set out in a stat block that makes the gods far more usable for players (for reference, see the Players Guide to Aihrde, already published). And lastly Brian explores the actual geopolitical and cultural world of Ancient Egypt allowing CKs to bring their players to another world, in another time!

Castles & Crusades Codex Egyptium is a 176 page black and white book that will retail for $29.99.

Castles & Crusades Codex Celtarum (2nd Edition): The first in the Mythos series is all but sold out (as of this writing there are 7 copies on the shelf). Brian Young has revisited this Codex and greatly expanded its content. Delving ever deeper into the mythos of the celts, expanding the background and overall content, this is truly a second edition of this classic RPG book. As with Codex Egyptium, we will revise each of the deity entries to come complete with stat blocks and all the accompanying information you need to bring these gods and spirits to play in your game! This book is available in some of the pledge levels. NOTE: If you want the leather version of this book, please put it in add ons.

Why Kickstarter

With this Kickstarter we hope to expand the Mythos series once again, this time exploring one of the most vibrant and legendary mythologies. Egyptian imagery is everywhere and the power of it resonates even today. It's something every gaming table should have and something that badly needs its own treatment.

The Expanded Package

We don't want this to just be a book about Egyptian Gods and Monsters, but something that you can unleash at your table immediately. With that in mind, we intend to create a wealth of source material for you and your table, all the while expanding on existing properties.

The Expanded Package includes the following: 

  • Cosmological Map of the Egyptians
  • A Guide to Symbols and Hieroglyphs
  • Codex of Aihrde Expansion: The Valley of Kayomar
  • Tomb of the River King Adventure Digital
  • Tomb of the River King Adventure Print
  • EZ Dungeons 2: Mummy's Tomb by Fat Dragon Games
  • Reaper Miniature

All these items will bring even more to your table!

Cosmological Map of the Egyptians: Your receive a large map of the Cosmos as envisioned by the Egyptians. Drawn by Peter Bradley it will contain all the beauty and color of his magnificent artwork.

A Guide to Symbols and Hieroglyphs: We'll include a guide to man of the major symbols of the Egyptians and their priesthood. Usable by priests, druids and clerics.

Tomb of the River King: We've taken the downloadable terrain created by Fat Dragon Games and written an adventure that uses the terrain at the table! 

Codex of Aihrde Expansion: The Valley of Kayomar. Stephen Chenault, creator of the Codex of Aihrde, will write an expansion book exploring the vast regions from the Darkenfold to the Gottland. It will include the roles of the Egyptian gods in that vast valley (hint to Aihrde fans, the ancient Ethrum dressed and worshiped much as the Egyptians.)

Fat Dragon Games EZ Dungeons 2: Mummy's Tomb: This awesome product allows you to print and make the Mummy's Tomb at your gaming table. For use on your own or with the Tomb of the River King.

Reaper Miniature: Our good friends at Reaper, who have long supported TLG and Castles & Crusades have some of the best gaming miniatures on the market today. For the expanded package you'll receive this bad boy (unpainted).

 What about an All Digital Level?

It's already there! Pledge at the $15 level and add on the digital  content from the list below to build it.

 Do I need the Castles & Crusades Rules to use Codex Egyptium?

That's probably not necessary, there is a great deal of information in the book on the gods and myths. However, the monster and character sections may need to be converted.

 What do I need if I want to start playing Castles & Crusades?

The cornerstone book for the GM (our CK) and the player is the  Players Handbook. Scoop up the Monster book (any one of the three) and  you have all you need. Check out all 100+ Castles & Crusades titles in our store here

Shipping

Shipping costs will be assessed during our survey, which comes from  BackerKit soon after the Kickstarter closes. Please Note: We try to keep  shipping costs at a minimum. While this is mainly a book oriented  Kickstarter, any add-ons or extra books or merchandise (if any is  offered) may cause the shipping price to rise, especially if the order  is international (out of the US). Please contact  productsupport@trolllord.com if you have any questions about shipping  before you pledge.

Risks and challenges

One of the greatest challenges we face is creating such a large book and maintaining the quality of the printing and binding. In order to do this, we must find a printer with the knowledge and capabilities to execute a book of this size and have it look polished and professional, something we take great pride in. This will cost more than the usual printing, so Kickstarter becomes essential in raising enough capital to give this book the quality it demands and deserves.

We are confident that with a successful Kickstarter we can bring this product to the world not only as a great resource, but also as a great looking book.
