Printing books is expensive. You've got to get together all the writing, all the artwork, and the layout done. Then you've got to send those files off to the printer. And you want to get as good a quality product as you can. Well, quality costs money. Even for popular titles, it might take a bit to get that print run done. As such, the 7th print run of the Castles & Crusades Players' Handbook
is up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
Our goal is to bring the 7th printing of this book to you as inexpensively as possible. If we hit our funding goal, your price is 50% off the cover price. This price is both a kindly thank you to all those who have supported C&C since the beginning and a good opportunity for those on the sidelines to scoop it up! It's a game worth having. Clearly.
