What our customers have to say...

Paul F
Aside from the beautiful writing and the wealth of useful information contained in it, the Codex of Aihrde does one other thing extremely well, and that is 'encourage heroes to rise.'
Joseph H
A great collection of creatures malevolent and benign, fabulous treasure will entice your players to face greater dangers and heroic deaths!
Craig S
All color with beautiful art work. This become my favorite hard fantasy game the more I get to play
Jeffery C
Awesome company. Great people who know what we geeks love and strive hard to produce quality products. I bought the Storyteller's Thesaurus and will use it as an invaluable gaming aid. Other designers feel like idiots because that idea wasn't theirs.
J Hall
The packaging is nicely done... The pamphlet type books reminds me of some of the earliest D&D adventures...
I received my CK Guide just a few days ago and it is beautiful! I am still reading it over, but I really like this version. Keep up the good work, Troll Lords!
Brian B
Love the screens! I have to say their the best quality screens that I've used. My only issue is that I wish there were more of them. I run using a big table with many things to keep hidden. But all in all I think these are perfect. I may order another set!
The product is an excellent game, in the classic style.
Bart B
As is SOP for TLG CandC products, the cover art is beautiful and crisp...

Buying from Troll Lords -- Simple easy, the book looks great, and got it quickly!
