Re: A few Questions for GM's

1) How many players would you concider to be too many? 2) When in a group of people, do you like single game campaigns, or open ended when everyone runs something sooner or later? 3) Have you ever gotten intimidated by running a game with 9 players? 1. I usually only have 4 or less players as well....

Re: umm right

VaS = Victory At Sea, a miniatures combat game. CTA = Call To Arms, a miniatures combat game. SST = Starship Troopers, a miniatures combat game. there's a subtle theme here. and no offense taken, I just think we weren't on the same page as i dont do rpg's but tabletop combat only. My mistake, sorry...

Re: If the minis are being dumped, why even publish another

I know this seems like a silly question, but if Mongoose is dropping all their minis, why even bother making more games? VaS and CTA play good with counters, but some games wouldn't (sst, BE), so with no fig support, is there honestly any logical reason to publish a new game/genre? I really hope mo...

(...)I can only confirm that the RPG audience is indeed a "dying breed". Most of the people that buy RPGs in my shop are around thirty (and often more) and it seems there's nothing like a "new generation" of players. CCGs and miniature gaming seem to be more popular among the younger generations. C...

@Tathlum: It seems to me that you are quite subjective yourself when it comes to WoTC. You cant possibly know if 4e is all good or bad either. These are all just opinions and, as far as I can tell, most of them here are somewhat based on experience. Nothing wrong with having opinions... whether they...

My mom's from Enkoping. My dad met her here (the US) and they went back for a year. I was born there, but raised here. I have lots of family still there though. And yes, it seems the average pen&paper guy is in his mid thirties to late forties. In my group, there are 5 of us: two 39 year olds, one ...

I found a Swedish translation:

"Det brynigt var, och slidig måv
på vägen muntert gyrade.
Slank var varenda borogåv
och villa grunen hyrade."

Written in 1898

Where do you come from?

Hey all! Im just curious about where you all come from and when you started playing Conan. I´ll start with myself. I live in Sweden, in a rather small city called Norrkoping. I just started playing Conan although Ive been playing RPGs for almost 17 years now, on and off. The games me and my friends ...

A boardgame (Age of Conan) should be released this year by Nexus, the same Italian company which made the War of the rings boardgame. With a little search on the Conan forum, you should find some threads about it. Or ask directly Strom if you can't find it. Hmm, a strategygame was not what I had in...

Is it possible at all?

I was just wondering whether working as a freelance writer, -artist, -designer or -proofreader for Mongoose, is at all possible?

How about a Conan the Boardgame?

As said in my topic:
How about making a boardgame set in Hyboria? I dont know if this has been suggested already, it probably has, but it would be awsome to say the least.

Does anyone agree?

without miniatures you should ditch about half of the combat system of Conan, which is based on exact placement, counting of squares etc. If you are willing to do so, you may well adjudicate the game with a minimum of fuss. Start removing Attacks of opportunity, and things will start to go faster. ...

Why did this topic revert to some kind of subjectivity stand-off? If someone likes to remove all feats or add some of his own, then fine. Gaming is all about having fun, aint it?

Ah, yes. The old imagery ploy... Of course this is how I usually manage things when I GM an adventure, but since the rules of combat in Conan are so focused on distance and position I can see myself going mad from the strain of keeping track of everyone.

Combat without miniatures?

Howdy folks!

Im fairly new to Conan although Ive played various RPGs since I was 13(ergo: 17 years ago). I have a simple and straightforward question:

How do I manage combat without miniatures? Is there some proven way that works without puncturing an artery in my brain from exertion?
