Tainted Lands Q

Post by bighara »

Is TL for use with Castles & Crusades or is it a new SIEGE game? It looks like it's the former, but some of what I read before makes me unsure.

From the look of it, it could be both. But its largely geared to be the former.

I believe there are quick start rules in the Tainted Lands box set too! But clearly, it is deisgned to be used with the C&C PHB. The box set even comes with a set of polyhedrals!

And a disclaimer that it is not a new Castlevania game.

Man, this Tainted Lands stuff is nothing like Castlevania, Ravenloft or any of that stuff. It's 100% fantastical horror badassery.

Other than the keying mistake on the Lollygag Inn (heh put those numbers & letters in next run of the adventure component!!) this is one of the best products TLG has put out....

Badass. Simply badass!

Hmm,

From what I can see, it's not what I hoped for. I guess I'll pass. I didn't really follow this product's development so maybe I'm missing something, but I would have been more interested in something that was more a standalone SIEGE-based RPG, and not an extension of C&C. Maybe I'll change my mind as more info and reviews become available.

Double hmmm . . . unless I'm missing something, this looks like one of the most interesting C&C releases this and last year ~ among some of the greatest stuff I've seen from TLG!!

I will so buy this and mix it up with Aihrde, Barovia and Greyhawk for the perfect undead/vampire/gothic horror side adventure!!!

I meant TAINTED LANDS to be both a stand alone product and a C&C world product. My intent was to help Castle Keepers begin running horror games for the fun of that experience. I really appreciate those of you who gave me kind words at Gen Con and on this forum.

I did mess up the Lolly Gag adventure map. In CRUSADER 21 we will have a corrected map. Somewhere on this forum we will post a corrected map. Also it's only 70 games that have this map mistake.

I'm very sorry as I hate mistakes in my work more than anyone else.

Heh - no problem Jim - makes the 70 GenCon2009 runs "collectable" now
For those interested - it does stand alone - it has the base C&C rule book to use to run it with it, plus the Keeper's guide and player's guide with new classes and expanded material - so anyone can play it absolutely "as is" out of the box without the C&C PHB or M&T....

As I said, I think this is utter coolness and one of the best products from TLG.

Excellent job Jim.
