Black Libram

Post by dawnrazor »

So what's up with the Black Libram? Seems like a cool book, but I can't find it anywhere. Is it out of print?

Believe so. I know a good bit of it was integrated into the recently redone Haunted Highlands books (Same author), but I think the only way to get it now is via PDF at TLG or Drivethrurpg.
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.

The book isn't very thick. PDF seems to be a good option to me. You can always print it out and staple it or stick in a thin 3 ring binder.

Thanks guys,

I'm thinking of getting the Haunted Highlands setting, so if the material is included there I'm good :)

I would consider giving you one but the last time I did that, it seems, the person accepted and then never returned to the forums. I won't be used.

Of course you wouldn't. None of us do.

Anyway, it's very kind of you to offer something like this to a total stranger off the internet, and much appreciated as a gesture :)

If you want a print copy, I'm willing to sell mine. I have the new HH books, and I haven't ever really used Black Libram except as a player when I had a CK who made use of the material. So its spent 99.8% of its life span in my home just sitting on my gaming shelves.

My binding preferences have changed. I recommend printing out the PDF and getting it spiral bound.

The HH material is fantastic. Not sure if the HH Players Guide is coming back into print or not. I'm fairly certain TLG is sold out of it. It's probably still available in the pdf at the very least. It's a nice book for any Castles and Crusades game.

They should still allow the HH Players Guide to be made into digest size since that is done in house. But since they took it off the site can't order it in that version. Gods and Monsters too.......

Yes!
Both Haunted Highlands hardbacks in da house :) Plus the cool map.

After I take a pause from our current Blood & Treasure game in the Lost Lands, this is where I'm taking my players.

:o ... :lol: ... I wish I could play in THAT game!

I still like the Haunted Highlands a great deal. I wish we could get some extra support for it. More HH was a possibility, but now the author is working on a lot of stuff for FGG and I'm not sure we'll see any more.

But, boobies!

The Red Jester is one of the best "monsters" I've seen in a long time.

I used a scale down (lesser HD) version recently in my game and it made for great fun and was well received by my players. I called him a Blue Jester.

Great book!
