For anyone else who got any info, please add... Forum change, not happening. Steve can't stand the Knights site either. Wants to find a better alternative before doing any kind of change. So these forums remain our home for probably at least another 5 years. (My estimate, not Steve's) Steve is goin...

The Knights Forums

Greetings all! We are beginning the slow shift of material to the Knights of the Crusade page. It is fully functional and easy to navigate. I made a few posts of there today. But if you have material on these forums that supports the game we all love, I'd love it if you could migrate it to the new p...

Re: Victorious Impressions - Print Copy

Will there be a response to the issues with the print run? Or was there and I missed it. Nothing official. My personal impression is the Trolls are going to publlicly act as if nothing went wrong, and fix the mistake for any future printings. Which isn't really surprising, since they can't afford t...

Put the maps on the inside of the cover, and don't staple the covers to the module. If you have too many maps to fit on the cover, print a second "cover" (doesn't have to be on the cardstock, but you cans till do so if cost won't be a killer). Some famous 1E modules were done this way, and I always...

Re: Castles & Crusades What's Next

As far as Aufstrag goes, I wouldn't feel cheated by an "Aufstrag construction kit"... some areas detailed, and lots of tables and information about how to build your own Aufstrag. Then you'll be pleased. Level 1 is pretty detailed, with some open areas, Level two more detail, less open, Level three...

Absolutely nothing in the core will change.

Then just give yourself a narrow focus outline, and only write for that.
