Castles and Crusades Outpost adventure

Sat Aug 13, 2016 3:26 pm

As I mentioned in an earlier post I've been away from C&C for a few years and I just just browsing the catalogue on drive thru and I stumbled across this adventure. Is this a C&C version of KotB? or something different? the premise and preview I read sounds intersting. Anyone here own this and what are your thoughts on it?

I own it, and have read it. It's not exactly like KOTB but has some similarities. Essentially, the background on how the PCs come to this lonely tower is up the CK. Any walled keep is up to the CK to add to the adventure. The party is traveling through a deep forested land dominated by strong, clan-like orcs. The closer the PCs get to the tower, the more ferocious the orcs are. There are some elves that may help, or hinder the party, but they are not always the nicest of elven-folk as they may have hidden agendas. The tower itself could be a small, fort-like place like at the Keep on the Borderlands, but the premise of this adventure is that the tower/keep is deep in a lost/forgotten land well beyond the fringes of society. In that sense, the PCs could turn the tower into their own version, or prequel to the Keep on the Borderlands. Pretty neat idea actually.

Without giving too much away, this whole adventure plays out more like a war story. It's about thwarting orc warbands, and racing to various objectives while not getting run down by the enemy.

There are lots of references to miniature play in this 15 or so page module. It's an overland, outdoors sort of adventure.

I was rummaging through the forums and seen this post.

This is a great version on the Keep. http://www.pacesettergames.com/b2blonbo.html
