Perhaps a new one could be started, but unfortunately I think the user base for this excellent game is just too small.

Convert to 4e? i can't think of anything that would destroy the essence of the game faster. An absolutely absurd undertaking. If your online tool can't support d20, perhaps it is not meant to be. Or, better yet, play the current D20/OGL version of Conan the RPG as designed by Mongoose Publishing. It...

Stygian Scholar ftw! Threw in a coupla levels of Soldier to beef him up but it really set me back in the sorcerery dept though now at 7th level (scholar 4th) he is finally getting some good ****... I have a few other types I'd like to try out, especially a barbarian/thief that proves the quarterstaf...

I haven't picked up HB yet - have you had a chance to read it some more? How's the quality and are the changes significant? I've been happy with the sneak peeks published in KODT. The changes to the system are definitely significant - it's a whole new system. The only really interesting tidbit is t...

Glad they are moving on with a new version but I am sticking with the old for now. Have a campaign underway and no compelling reason to switch over (which would entail starting over, since there's no effective guide to converting HM 4e characters to HMb). Plus I like to use source material from AD&D...

See the Master of Death prestige class in the Secrets of Skelos (aka Sorcerer's handbook) sourcebook.

Good question. Do you play a Scholar? Um..im sure that reply has little relevance to the question...more likely he's asking as a DM Don't be obtuse. Scholars (well, those with Necromancy as a sorcery style) can cast Raise Corpse and Legions of the Dead, and it's helpful to know what your thralls' s...

I wish they would have made one for a Stygian city like Kheshatta or Khemi - either one of those cities would make for far, far more exciting adventuring than Messantia :roll:

Who has actually played a prestige class?

Just curious as to who has had their character make it up to a prestige class and how it went. The majority of the prestige classes I think are for Sorcerers, there are 4 in the Secrets of Skelos alone, though there is also the Forest Runner and Beastmaster from Across Thunder River too... What's yo...

Crushing Grip is certainly very powerful, but also quite expensive, requiring 3 feats altogether. Well yes, many of the feats at the 'peak' of the feat trees are indeed powerful, but at least the two other feats required for Crushing Grip (Improved Unarmed strike and Improved Grapple) are no slouch...

Steely Gaze and Menacing Aura are my favs, because I like the idea of scarring the piss out of your enemies, at will ! +1, these are must-have feats for sorcerers. The flavor is cool and the mechanic is effective too, weakening their attack power and saving throws, setting up nicely for spells, poi...
