Strange Brew: The Ultimate Witch & Warlock (PF/C&C)

Hi, gang:

I just wanted to let you know that the Strange Brew kickstarter Timothy Brannan and I are doing will have a 256-page, full-color book for Castles & Crusades, as well, though it will come out slightly behind the Pathfinder version. Tim and I both love C&C! We want to add these classes to the game. I hope you will consider supporting this effort. I'm publishing this piece through Misfit Studios. Hal Greenberg will be doing some magic items for the book.

Maybe I can talk the Trolls into carrying the book for us later.

I set up a Facebook Page for folks to ask questions there, too, since some of the authors are only familiar with Pathfinder.

Oh, and here is a link for a preview of a Basic Era games version of The Witch by Timothy Brannan. It is only good for 4 more days, so download now.

A new PDF product, the Direlock Base Class for PF by Forest Guardian Press, will be added at the $25+ level when we achieve 125 backers. Help spread the word.

Christina, this sounds awesome! I love your work and am really looking forward to this product. But I do have a question. The Kickstarter pledge levels all talk about Pathfinder, and no mention of C&C. With this book being released for C&C, can I substitute the PF book for the C&C version (I have no need for Pathfinder books)?

Will the C&C version be 256 pages - or has that yet to be determined?

Since PF uses prestige classes and the like, what will those classes be like for C&C (altogether different classes, eliminated, or something else)?

You know, I've been thinking Prestige Classes could be used by adapting them to the Class and a half rules, or Dual classing rules, but with a minimum level requirement for the "primary" class before being able to branch out into a Prestige Class.

Hey, Omote, glad you asked! It started out as a PF-only product. I added the C&C book in later. All backers of $25 or above get both versions in PDF--you'd get some PF PDFs, too. If you sign up at $55 or more, you tell me the print version you want. If you sign up at $150 or more, you can contribute to the C&C book. We are shooting for enough material to expand out the C&C book. It will be that big, either way. We do want to add some options into it for the players, much like the race pieces that Hal and I have done allow.

Yes, and this is an idea I invite you to explore. Do you want to write some of that for the book? Let me know.

Tim and I could use your help spreading the word, too. We've stalled at under $5K.

This project is shaping up quite well! I'm glad I backed this C&C product. It's full color, with hundreds more spells for the C&C game. Aye, more spells is a good thing. Less than 28 hours to go!

I would be normally all over this sort of thing and it would be typically something I would insist on getting in hardback.

$55 + $25 shipping makes this considerably out of reach for me.

One can argue that the PDF level at $25 is the obvious solution but I haven't decided if I'm OK with just the PDFs.
