A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
This just came in my e-mail from Troll Lord Games. Didn't see other posts on this, so I thought I would post for those who are interested.

Oops. I should have posted this in the TTRPGs general thread. The Gygax materials will be published for the Castles & Crusades rules.


In 2003 Gary opened a discussion with Steve Chenault about Castle Zagyg. He did not want it to appear under the Dungeons & Dragons name or game system. When the Troll Lords proposed that we make Castles & Crusades compatible with his vision for a game for Castle Zagyg he heartly agreed. Both he and Steve wanted C&C to be near to AD&D, so it worked well. Gary was given the right of approval of the rules, and did so with few corrections, so that when Castle Zagyg: Yggsburgh and Upper were finally published, they launched with the Castles & Crusades SIEGE Engine system. We will pick up with his wishes where we left off in 2008.​

C&C is insanely easy to convert to and from. I ran it during the 4E era and I didn't need to do any conversions ahead of time to run anything from OD&D through 3E material at the table. Even character classes could be brought in wholesale, so long as no one was sweating small differences in damage per round, etc. (And if you care about that kind of stuff, you're probably not playing C&C.)
