Post Monsters & Treasure 5th Printing on Kickstarter now!
Monsters & Treasures: Soft Open!

We are "officially" launching our Castles & Crusades Monsters & Treasure Kickstarter at 4pm Eastern Time this Sunday (the 28th) but once again, we are having a "soft" opening to give the early birds a little extra!

Because you are a grizzled veteran of the Dens and have signed up for our newsletter or backed a previous Kickstarter, you are invited to help us kick this dungeon door down and FUND the Kickstarter!

Pledge $45.00 or more BEFORE the official launch time, that is before 4PM Eastern, the 28th. If you do, you will receive, at no extra cost, an official Castles & Crusades Flash Drive, that includes digital copies of the following books: Monsters & Treasure, 5th printing, CKG 3rd printing, Players Handbook, 8th Printing (due out in 2019), one adventure, the official C&C Bottle Opener, and the C&C Coin.

HELP US FUND TODAY! JOIN THE FRAY! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/676918054/castles-and-crusades-monsters-and-treasures?ref=2ut1nz

I heard about this via email, and being a "grizzled veteran" I was invited to get in early. That's great, I like TLG and C&C, and love Monster books. However, after seeing this posted here, and seeing the same advertisement on Social Media, it looks as if everyone was invited to get in early. Seems sort of misleading and takes a bit of the excitement out of it for me. If everyone is eligible, fine. Just say so. Don't make a big deal about being an email subscriber, previous kickstarter backer, and "veteran" if none of those things really matter.

Your only eligible if your "early". Being the early bird makes us special.

There's a link on their Facebook page anyone can access, unless I'm looking at this wrong.

I guess they could reword it:

Because you are a grizzled veteran of the Dens and have signed up for our newsletter or backed a previous Kickstarter or are on Facebook or read forums or are carbon-based or have a pulse or are not some kind of semi-intelligent creature that evolved from a sandwich someone left in the refrigerator for 3 months or maybe if you are, I mean, it's a Kickstarter and it only funds if we have enough people...

Yeah, we made two tactical errors in this scenario. One we let the cat out of the bag in social media too early. It was just a mistake on our part; we simply forgot what we had said to do. This happens sometimes when we are all working on one thing and we just simply forget the plan. Second, we were supposed to end the soft opening today instead of tomorrow (sunday).

It was not meant to be snarky or disingenuous, it's just Trolls being Trolls. Well meaning but daft. :-)

Anyway, it has funded so this will be happening! Now what's left is the stretch rewards and making this thing even better!

I'm sure I was one of many, but remember posting right here that I'd love to see a combined monster tome. Bravo! I just pledged and look forward to this.

Hoping for an expanded Gods & Monsters at some point, also.

Yeah, when I saw the KS, I was wondering if it was the Trolls finally listening to our conversations. Steve apparently listened to somebody. Since this is also going to apparently be pure Monsters, I would like Steve to take the name change suggestion to "Crusaders Bestiary" very seriously.

Tim, if your still following this, put that bug in Steve's ear, VERY loudly.

Ok so in typical Troll style, the opening page to the Kickstarter reads "Monsters Treasure". Should it read "Monsters & Treasure"?

Hand-slaps face.

Yep. Upon further reading Treasures will be included as well. So definitely should read that way.

Steve speaks about the KS and Tomb versus Tome...

Tomb of the Unclean sounds totally kickass. Just saying.

I thought August might have been mentioned (for M&T) at one point, but don't take that as official. That's above my pay grade. ;)

I am quite aware that it's been a hell of a long time since this thread was updated, but I was wondering if there was any forward progress on Monsters & Treasure fifth printing's arrival date. Mr. Chenault, on Fantasy Grounds Fridays (Feb. 2018) indicated that the book would be a considerably larger arrangement combining the contents of several books, allowing access to a much larger number of enemies/encounters from a single reference point. This sort of thing is of considerable interest to me, and wondering how close - after the last post, closing on a year ago - the book's arrival might be.

All thanks for the attention on this.

The final pdf is out. As of 3/4 this was being sent to the printer. No word since then.

Nice! Much appreciated on the present-update statement; while I stand very much by the PDF use, I really prefer something I can hold in my hands. Will be checking the online availability, and hoping the FLGS gets some indication as to definite arrival date/s.

I take it that the PDF is currently only available to backers of the Kickstarter? The ones on DrivethruRPG and the TLG store seem to be 4th printing.

Fair point, BJB; with the small arrangement of Kickstarters I've been involved with to this point (one of them being TLG's Free City of Eskadia), I do understand that the backers get a bit of go-ahead on PDF access, as well as hard-copy deliveries and "Ooh, tasty little num-nums" extras. All that stated, it's also been true that the general RPG buying public does get the chance to pick this stuff up at some future point, hopefully before the next calendar year has started. Again, just hoping that Messers Chenault and/or associated TLG staff can give us a telescope-viewable point where this work, with all its additions and addendum, might be making its way in our direction.

Their recent Twitch channel bit from yesterday covers this and a few others.

Do you happen to have a link to a specific tweet? I've searched the timeline and can't find anything. Thanks.

I believe he meant Twitch, not Twitter.

Thank you for the clarification - tried it on Twitter and ended up being inaccessible. Twitch does work, although the lockups, which can go on for upwards of a minute at a time, are endless. In any case, the information is available, and Steven does confirm that M&T fifth printing should be out "in the next couple of months," if I'm phrasing correctly. So, just sighing, doing the thumb-twiddling thing and waiting for stuff to come out.

Ah, thank you. That's a pity.

Since it looks as though the latest versions of both the PH and M&T will be out (probably) this year I'll just stick with "C&C Condensed" for now and wait.
