Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

I don't know if you have looked at 5th Edition much, but what advice would you give for turning that edition of D&D into a Sword & Sorcery game? Throw out alignment. People in S&S stories are gray. They are sometimes good and sometimes bad--they are people. Heroes are many times anti-heroes. Make M...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

Reading? Writing? Here's a simple and easy to use rule in your game for character literacy. First off, note that the NPC class for Commoners default to illiterate.

My thought is that the character has earned that through the acquisition of experience points. What I don't do is allow new Feats and skills to magically improve the character. The ...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

THE COST OF TRAINING/LEARNING/ADVANCING Way back when, when I ran my long-term campaigns playing AD&D and AD&D 2E, one of the rules I used was that character level advancement usually (not always) required some sort of mentor/teacher/trainer. This could be some grizzled old war veteran who could te...

Re: [CONAN] GM's Closet

SCROLLS When converting a standard D&D adventure, or an adventure from most other fantasy games, for use in a Conan game, the GM will most likely dispense with most of the "drops" that are common in such things. Things like +1 daggers, rings of invisibility, cloaks of protection, and what not are e...
