Also, there's a section which tells us the book will cover "Heroes & Legends" (pg 3-4) "A new sytle of play for powerful characters" which I interpreted as level 10+ character campaigns (the Magnakai Disciplines are the given example). Yet the book contains no such section. Which is somewhat disapp...

Races in Magnamund.

So, I was reading on the various kingdoms and it mentions that the Sommerlending and Ulnar weren't native to the continent. Well that got me thinking, obviously, they are two separate lines of humanity. And so, what would be the difference in appearance among them? What makes an Ulnar, an Ulnar and ...

Jason Momoa? Wasn't he in Stargate Atlantis? And isn't he BLACK?

I thought Cimmerians were Celt analogs...

Same place the Aesir and Vanir get theirs. By raiding and being raided. Excuse me Nagisawa, but that's simply stupid. Raiding is not a meaningful activity to get the huge amount of iron ore to feed the need of weapons of an "over-militarized" warrior culture. Even "simple" or "barbarian" societies ...

'Taint'? A little strong there. Besides, you don't HAVE to watch it.

Personally, I'd go with OVA. Mainly because Record of Lodoss War (The first arc, anyway) was an OVA and unlike most T.V. series doesn't have to follow a formula, which deals with marketing toys or models or some such. Now if you want Seinan, you'll need to add at least one more character, probably f...

It... Depends.

Which genre of Anime would you be aiming for? Shonen or Seinan? Would it be a T.V. or OVA? (You can get away with a lot more violence and less formulaic action in an OVA.)

Simpler is better, imo. I'd go with one of the following: a) The re-roll option (maybe limiting it to 3/day ala the Twin Blades rules). b) Just give a +1 CS bonus (so it's better than using a single 1-handed weapon on its own, but not as effective as a shield-and-weapon combo, which is true; sword-...

Hmm, I see your point about CS. So OK, Two Handed Weapons are +2 damage, and Dual Weapons are +1 CS if used defensively. Not sure what to do with DW offensively. I want one weapon and shield to still be a good idea, after all.

I was thinking something like Dual Wielding (Off hand weapon must be smaller than the main hand) gives either a +1 CS or ES, depending on whether or not you're using it defensively, or offensively. A two handed weapon (Which I thank you for point it out) would give a +2 CS, as it's all about power a...

Ah, so no actual damage effect. it's nothing more than flavour.

Hmm, cuz I was wondering how to implement two weapon fighting as a sort of spin off idea.

Oh well.

Query: Weapons!

What do they do? I mean, I can't find any details as to what different weapons do for the players. Other than that unarmed PC's get a -4 to Combat.

D20 is GREAT for team play, but sadly isn't good for mimicking Sword and Sorcery. IN MY OPINION. Did you EVER, actually, play Conan rpg (d20 AS PUBLISHED by Mongoose) or used the WoC D&D 3.5 canon (wizard-cleric-fighter-thief)? To me it looks like you did the second or played the first with pre-mad...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v347/Nagisawa/flames.gif However, I will say this. Although I had great fun with D20, even with the multi-classing rules, I found the class system too limited for 'real' sword and sorcery. S&S Heroes (And I'm not talking just Conan) tend to be skilled and capable g...
