Crystar was born when somebody got the idea to use see-through plastic to make toys. In the Saga of Crystar his origin involved demon lords, magic crystals and such. Ultimately, Crystar became a living, fighting gemstone with a sword. Really, the Sage has everything you need for a good S&S game - demon lords, Chaos War, a guy named Feldspar.

Thank you so much for reminding me how much I loved Crystar! I had a few of the figures and some of the comics. It's been years since I even thought about the series/setting, but this brought back some great memories!ReplyDelete
Makes me wonder how many of my childhood favorites I've also temporarily forgotten about!
BTW, did you ever see the very short-lived TV series Wizards and Warriors? Had some very cool elements in it.
I am dimly aware of its existence, but I've never actually seen it. I think I saw a clip on youtube.Delete
Loved that show. For the entire twelve minutes that it was on the air...Delete
I always thought of that as the high-water mark of the early-80's fantasy craze. And no, the D&D cartoon doesn't count.
We had to wait for the comic book to get any female characters... but write ups for the enchanting Ika and melancholy Ambara would be quite fine :)ReplyDelete
I remember being somewhat disappointed with the comic book series, but man, it had some awesome covers for its short existence.ReplyDelete
Dude, I had the castle when I was really, really little...I never did have any of the figures for it, but damn that castle was sweet.ReplyDelete
Awesome! I've always dug Crystar, and felt it was a concept that died before it could get fully developed.ReplyDelete
