The item no adventuring party should be without

I recently had a chance to run a game of Castles & Crusades. After creating characters, the players all turned to the Equipment section of the C&C rulebook to purchase the usual adventuring props: weapons, armor, 50′ coils of rope, 10′ poles, etc.

While browsing through the list of equipment, one of the players noticed something that had escaped my notice until now:


As you might expect, this discovery ensured that a walrus joke (who knew there were so many of them?) was made approximately every five minutes for the rest of the evening. If I ever need to know the going rate for a walrus, at least I now know where to find it.

    That’s hilarious. Wasn’t there a “war chicken” listed in one of the earlier D&D books? For some reason, I have a vague memory of someone buying a war chicken.

    War chicken? That sounds awesome. Now I’ll have to dig out my old 1st edition books and see if I can find it.

    Somebody really ought to put together a master list of “Easter eggs” in RPG books. I know there are lots of them out there…
