Pocket edition?

Post by jdizzy001 »

Question, what is the probability that we will see a small digest sized manual for cnc? Maybe the old flip manual reprinted as a pocket edition? Even though I have 4 copies of cnc in some form or other, I would buy a pocket edition, especially if it was a flip book of the phb and m&t!

This was done in 2016. TLG put out pocket editions of the PHB, M&T, screens, FlipBook, Eskadia, Haunted Highlands, Rune Lore, Classic Monsters, Codex Nordica, and Codex Celtarum. C&C did this in the past (2014?) and the results we OK at best. The 2016 versions are real nice, with dark bold type face on clean white pages. Makes the 4-point font easier to read. I still use the books for convention play instead of the normal size versions for ease in portability.

In other words, its possible the Trolls may do it again, but they don't have any in stock right now. So places like eBay, etc... are your only possibilities.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

I love my digest size PHB and M&T dearly. They're probably my most prized RPG books. I doubt I'll buy another PHB or M&T unless it's digest sized unless there are huge changes to the text.

Love these. They were my first C&C purchases when I decided to get back into gaming a few years ago. Glad I chose C&C.

I was at my FLGS last night and noticed that they had a pocket edition I never knew was released: Monsters & Treasures of Aihrde.

Ebay and Amazon have them (just a few showing), but if you are patient, you can check every week or two for additional listings and the lowest price!

A bit pricey, especially for a used copy, but that doesn't surprise me.
