Troll Lord Games have made the 194-paged PDF edition of the 7th printing of their popular Castles & Crusades RPG a free download.
The fantasy roleplaying game is an easy to master attributes-based system built from 13 core character types. These rules have 7 races, spells, equipment and rules for fast-paced combat.
In essence, all that you need to try a game of Castles & Crusades is in this download.
C&C was first published in 2004 and was based on the d20 system used by Wizards of the Coast for D&D at the time. In fact, the name is based on the Castle & Crusades Society founded by Gary Gygax before he published Dungeons & Dragons.
Like the sound of that? Right now you can get C&C for free at the Troll Lord Games store.
