I liked it. I used it last sunday in my game, when my players found themselves rummaging through the remains of some dark, damp fortress. They found some criss-crossing corridors, and wound up taking on 79 children of the night. Most of them got out of there with single-digit HP. The others were dra...

License holders have prevented the release of my favorite RPG books.

Si jamais il y a d'autres offres d'appel pour un vérificateur d'ortographe pour une version française de Conan, je serais très intéressé à tenter ma chance.

Merci.

I would not be willing to bet on that. I have seen a LOT of adaptations from books/games/cartoons to the big screen... And most of them scare me. Speed racer, anyone? Dead or Alive? Street Fighter? Resident Evil? Silent Hill? IMHO, they got two actors who got the Batman role right out of the plethor...

Like I stated in another thread. Give me the people who are threatening to harm my favorite game in a closed room, a battle axe, some platic bags and duck tape.

Oh, and about ten minutes. Tops.

My players started off with loincloths and slave shackles.

That had to fight, cheat, steal and kill their way to riches.

And they'll keep fighting, cheating, stealing and killing to get more. :)

Hell... My characters started as slaves rowing to their own inevitable doom. Got caught up in one nasty storm that send the ship crashing into jagged rocks. They swam for an hour or so in the storm to land on an island. They found one another in a cave, and decided that they should work together to ...

Mr. Sprange, IMHO You have no reason to apologise for anything. For what I've seen until today, I've received a fine product and met some fine people here in this forum. The system is great, the rules are flexible and the game is fun. And I've NEVER been part of an RPG forum where the producers and ...

So let me get this straight.

This whole plan was underway... and someone decided to pull the plug.

Please give me a name, adress, a plastic bag and some duct tape.

And a battleaxe.

Attendance.

Fun with the players.

Interesting characters.

I run my game like I'd want a DM to run any game; with passion, with fun in mind, with ease on rule and depth on story. A generous sprinkling of blood, gold and wenches.

I still have to say, I tend to lean towards single class. Still like my Gunderman Soldier. Have Pike will travel. I've played a rather large quantity of different pen-and-paper RPGs. A lot of them were level-based. The fun with the Conan multiclassing system is that there's no real drawback to mult...

Personally, my players are not high-level yet. I mix it up. They enjoy narratives, so I have several options for me. 1- Mob rules. No matter how cool you are, 30 level 1 rogues are still a dangerous bunch. Add in a higher level dude with a battle axe, and you have a nice challenge. 2- Use the enviro...

The borderer is not as much of a damage-dealing machine as other classes (say, barbarian, soldier, or some sneak attack combo multiclass). However, the majority of the incredible spot/survival checks have been made by the multiclass borderer PC in my game. In a city he feels out of place, but in the...
