Hey, I ordered my book 5 days ago and I havent gotten my copy yet either. I demand airfair from Seattle to London and an tour. Ohhh, yeah! I like the sound of that! And a pony. I want a pony. With a Sommersword on it. The real one, not that replica. My pony arrived in the mail yesterday. TBH I wasn...

I played in a very good Conan game, and i Think it works as a system much better than bog-standard D&D. But the game still ended up breaking down when we hit high levels, (In the same way our D&D games always do.) Basically like D&D I think its good for short and mid length campaigns, but not really...

Yeah, the intro was huge ;o) As an old time player your sat there thinking, "Eek, I have been sat with this book for half an hour now and I haven't actually started the book proper!" Also I think it sets up the series a lot better. You really get a feel for who the Kai are, and who Silent Wolf is, a...

Its going to be interesting to see how much they change.

Book 1 has been rewritten pretty extensively, and there's quite a few changes in it that I would expect to be referenced later in the Gamebooks.

Plus there seem to be a lot of new items added which may turn up again.

Hi there, I have been working on a draft of the RPG, but it is very early days yet, so take everything with a pinch of salt. The rules system is _very_ close to the gamebooks, to the extent that you can indeed lift monsters and equipment straight from them. It is a very easy and rules-lite game tha...

Erm are you sure, I thought using Dex rather then Str is exactly what a finesse attack is.

That's pretty much correct, with a scimitar having 15-20 with imp. and 12-20 with greater. Isn't the scimitar 17-20 with improved and 15-20 with greater as Auggie originally posted? The normal threat range is two numbers (19-20), doubled is four numbers (17-20) and tripled is six numbers (15-20). I...

A) He'd have to count on every round to do the trick, or suck it all into one big blast to try and kill everyone in charge range, other wise, with crappy hit dice and FORT saves, a sorcerer is dead when the first melee guy gets to him (see discussions on two-handed weapons - lol). B) If the charact...

With that a Sorcerer can dish out +5d6 damage the first round and 5d6 damage in other rounds if he has more than one thrall. It needs a magical link though, so the best bet is to kill the Thralls first. 8) Or 10D6 damage every other round, or 15D6 damage very 3 rounds. Fight defensively, prolong th...

I hate to try and break up this delightful discussion, But actually the "Rule of the Master" + Defencive blast is way more broken than the "Opportunist Sacrifice" feat, at least you have to buy the feat.

I love the high living rules, i'm constantly either really rich or mega broke.

As for my gear, I tend to spend Fortune Points to break it a lot. ;o)
