The history of C&S dates back to the middle of the 70's, 1974 to be exact when the designer, Ed Simbalist designed a set of rules called, Chevalier that he actually wanted to handed over to Gary Gygax to look at and possibly sell them to him. However, Gary was too engrossed in tearing strips off of a teenager in the gencon at the time for doing something wrong so Ed turned around with his co-authors and went his own way and published C&S 1st Ed. in 1977, 2nd Ed. in 1983, 3rd Ed. in 1997 and then 4th Ed. Rebirth around 2000 or so. http://rdushay.home.mindspring.com/Muse ...
