There were one or two items that were released in PDF but not printed - although at the moment their titles escape me.

For PDFs I know of:

Class Options & Skills for Yggsburgh
Yggsburgh Player's Maps
The Outs Inn

Though I don't know if the first of those had any setting info.

Or is it also incomplete never to be finished?


There were 24 city-side products planned, in addition to some adjunct modules. Most were never published (two were released as pdfs for a very short time) but many (if not all) were finished.

Some of the authors have said they will release the works on their own, as the rights reverted back to them, minus any direct reference to things they can't own. Others are continuing to work with Gygax Games. So, no one knows what the state is, and whether it will be finished -- currently, it is not, at least to the public.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Thanks folks.

Counting just the items that were released That is a lot of stuff.

How would someone get the PDFs since they are no longer officially available?

Currently I don't think there is a way where you can legally obtain these PDFs.  I would guess that the author's have copies of the PDFs but these products also contain references to Castle Zagyg so such bits would have to be removed for the products to be rereleased (similar for the printed items).

As Serleran has said, some may be released in the future with Castle Zagyg references removed or possibly rereleased by Gygax Games with the Castle Zagyg references left in.

I would never go so far as to condone the use of Torrents. They're full of stuff like that, and Google make it far too easy to search for illegal downloads. It's very wrong, so don't do it.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

Troll Lord Games still have a Castle Zagyg adventure available for download, contrary to their apparent agreement with Trigee. It is a freeby (3 pages) in the Castles & Crusades Quick Start Rules (the one with the purple Castle Zagyg Adventure Inside! sticker), and it's called Castle Zagyg: The Workhouse of Yggsburgh Town by Jeff Talanian.

Might be worth downloading before it gets deleted as well.

The freebie on RPGNow is the same, but it has covers.

I welcome Zanarchist to the drama that is Amazon: Upper Works.

Mine is new/shrinkwrapped, and his is like new/not shrinked.  However, his is $50 cheaper at $199.99.

Yes I did the Amazon thing. If I sell it ok and if I don't that's ok too. But a sell would let get more Basic/Expert stuff:)

Just out of curiosity, is it easy or a pain in the rumpkiss to set up an account and list items for sale on Amazon?

Canada, I dunno.  Probably simple.

U.S., simple.  I don't remember what I had to provide.  At a minimum I believe I needed a bank account (for payments) and a mailing address of some sort.  I don't think I needed to provide a credit card number.

Amazon makes a "disbursement" (transfer to your bank account) every two weeks.  A disbursement can be manually requested as often as every 24 hours or thereabouts, though it takes 3 - 5 days to actually make it to the bank.  I think you need to have sold a certain minimum amount.

Is that vague enough for you?   :oops:  Amazon is painless.  I remember PayPal being a big pain.

This could be useful.

Quick check into it and it just became very difficult.  Since the Castle Zagyg boxed set never made it into the Amazon.ca circulation, it is not in their catalog.  I tried to list one for sale and was told:

**Please note: Because the item you indicated is not currently in our catalog, it is ineligible for Amazon Marketplace selling

Only items that are in our catalog can be listed for sale at Amazon Marketplace. Please consider listing a different item for sale at Amazon Marketplace.


I guess I could always put another one up on Amazon.com :)

Same in the UK. We can't sell them on Amazon either. Furthermore, we can't list them on Amazon.com either, as they prevent sellers with non-US addresses from listing. I've come accross this before. The belief seems to be that US buyers only buy US products, and UK buyers only buy mainstream US products . So they select those products UK buyers will want to buy and ban those products they won't want to buy.

I don't know if Canada has a more cosy relationship with Amazon.com, but here in the UK it's a case that we have to accept US control.
