Disciple of Yag? - Ever going to get to see it?

I remember there was some material about a new sorcery style that was cut from Khitai, namely something that humans learned from our friendly green flying elepehant :wink:

Will it ever see print in S&P or will it sink beneath the waves once the licence expires? :(

Well, i think the Border Kingdoms is going to remain undefined. Its essentially the place you can stick a Lovecraftian style adventure in - or any other dark/depressing moody situation - ergo the equivalent of a big blank space with "Stick adventure here." Hyperborea will be hard, especially since t...

The Final Test of King Conan?

The political situation in Aquilonia since the ascendancy of King Conan starts off rather chaotic for the Cimmerian. Many of the Nobles of Aquilonia chaffe under his rule, involving themselves in plot after plot after plot : Kill Conan with wizardy. Kill Conan with demons. Poison Conan. Discredit Co...

Hyborian Newsflash: So wait, the Gods of Khitai do exist?

The ontological status of the various Gods in the Hyborian age is something that is left rather vague (aside from the Great Old Ones). But the recent Khitai sourcebook had a spell called "Heaven's Stairway" that essentially thrusted the sorcerer into the realm of the Jade Emperor. Does that mean, we...

The Next Sourcebook?

Khitai, Cimmeria. Where do you think Mongoose should set its agenda next? There's been a lot written on the Pictish wilderness, Aquilonia, Stygia, the Black Kingdoms, etc. And it would be rather useless to focus on places a small as the kingdoms surrounding Koth. The only viable places seem to be Tu...

When Demon Lords and Demon-Pacted Sorcerers collide?

SO, you've got a PC or NPC who decided to make a demon pact for power and now his/her group has decided to set their sites on taking down let's say Khostrel Khel. If this where any other situation: bringing down a kindgom, assassinating a high priest, carrying off a princess, et al. Your demon benef...

The Social Scene and Politics of Sorcery?

Let's face facts: The career of a scholar in the Hyborian age is a precarious situation. Unless you've hit the ground running due to some special ancestry like being a Child of a certain hoary ancient nature deity or having your mom, whose been doing a little too much Black Lotus, fall asleep on Dag...

Stealing the Mysteries?

I've been playing around with a few ideas for my game, and i was wondering if anyone thought it were possible to go off and "steal" the mysteries of a particular Hyborian religion. The primary offenders that i can see doing this would be: "Ye independent sorceror who just wants to pay lip service." ...

So who makes the better Sorcerers?

Well, we already know that the Zamorians are top notch theives, although the so-called King of Theives was a Nemedian. So who makes the better Sorcerers? I know the knee-jerk response is STYGIANS - but do the folks in Hyperborea, Khitai, the Shemite Desert dwellers, or leftover Lemurians, or the rem...

I consider it part of the Seventh Mystery, but I don't explicitely say so. My personal opinion is that Epimetrius is Mitra (check out his name: epi~ is a prefix meaning something along the lines of "the coming of" or "toward" or "near"). :shock: You know Vincent, you just blew my mind especially wh...

Epemitreus and the Cult of Mitras

Could anyone with a copy of Faith and Fervour tell me if the Cult of Mitras outlines a section for Epemitreus the Sage? Axerules had pointed out a rather significant passage in The Phoenix on the Sword, "In Mitra's name, lord king, be silent!" It was the high-priest of Mitra who cried out, and his c...

Meditation vs. Sacrifice?

We all know the types of sorcerors who would make use of the Ritual Sacrifice and other attendant merits - Pictish Shamans, members of House of the Black Circle, Hyperborean Witchmen, and your independent Necromancer trying to make an honest living by raising an army of the undead. Obviously, the Sa...

The Cthulhu Mythos during the Hyborian Age?

Now here's an interesting question for those who like to consider the connections between the works of HPL, CAS, and REH (and a good kind nod to Vincent for keeping the door open for such ruminations in the RPG): What is the state of affairs of the creatures that we commonly associate under the head...

I have a comment to make Vincent. I love this book! I think its one of the best d20 books out there trying to detail a culture, its something rather unique and keeping in REH's vision. Its generates for the reader a believable decadent empire. I do have a question though, regarding the House of the ...

Well, seems to me the struggle between the "ally with Hyborian" liners and the Acheronian old guard can be a nice way to throw my PCs into the cult's politics. Actually, i figure that the "Acheronian old guard" is rather quiet...extremely quiet. If it was ever leaked to the Hyborian kingdoms as to ...
