I haven’t done a Kickstarter campaign post in a while. I came across this one less than an hour ago – Chivalry & Sorcery – the Medieval Role Playing Game Kickstarter Campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cns5/chivalry-and-sorcery-the-medieval-role-playing-game. I have been a fan of the game ever since I found the game. I have owned every edition over the years and most of the modules and supplemental books. Added to Gaming Sunday June 30, 2019.
Addit: Here’s the Kicktraq for the campaign: http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/cns5/chivalry-and-sorcery-the-medieval-role-playing-game/.
Chivalry and Sorcery (C&S) was an early RolePlaying Game (RPG) that was noted for a few things. First, it was a lot more complicated than most early RPGs. Next, there have been a number of editions over the years, done by different companies, starting with what would become Fantasy Games Unlimited (FGU or FGUI), Highlander Games, and lastly Brittannia Game Designs.That’s not including some unofficial and unauthorized versions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Book_(C%26S) that cropped up over the years. Creating a character could take a while. With most RPGs, you could create a character in short order. With C&S, it could take hours. It was not an RPG for the faint of heart if you weren’t into complex, complicated RPGs.
The very first edition had to go through some major modifications to remove copyright issues dealing with Lord of the Rings stuff (Hobbits, Balrogs, and a few other Tolkien elements). They didn’t rename the new edition 1.1. C&S wasn’t the only game that had to deal with Lord of the Rings copyright issues as Dungeons and Dragons (D&D) and a few other RPGs from the early days had similar copyright issues when they first came out.
