Re: [Conan] Kudos

Hey, Darwin, did you ever manage to track down any form-fillable/saveable, character sheets? If you're still looking, I have two or three that I pulled from somewhere off the internet years ago. Send me a PM with your email address and I'll shoot 'em off to you. I also have a pretty extensive Excel ...

Re: [CONAN] Shooting or Throwing into Melee

The rule says that you've got to aim carefully in order not to hit your friend. You take a -4 on your throw. But, what if you miss? Is there no chance to hit your friend? The -4 penalty represents the care you're taking with your shot so that you don't hit your ally. Pure and simple. I don't think ...

Re: [CONAN] Sunder or Lock Weapons?

If one of my PCs is the attacker in that situation, I let the player decide whether he wants to go for the weapon lock or the sunder. I leave it to them to decide which would more advantageous to go for, tactically speaking. When it happens with an NPC as the attacker, I make the same decision based...

Re: [CONAN] Books to chase down?

I would certainly make a case for Hyboria's Fiercest being a good supplement to have on hand. Even if you don't care about the multiclassing options or whatnot, the wealth of environmental and survival rules are worth the price of admission. Even if you don't use them all the time, I think it's wort...

Re: [CONAN] Atlantean Edition

It is a fine looking book, indeed. Glad you finally got a hold of one. I know you were looking for a while.

Makes me sad that they didn't produce the 2nd edition rulebook in the same full-color, glossy-paged fashion. But I can understand keeping costs down and all that, I guess....

Re: [CONAN] A disconnect with CHR?

How about, in the specific case of the Intimidate skill, using the Charisma modifier as an absolute value? Whether the actual value is negative or positive, treat it as a positive modifier to Intimidate. Your Charisma 10 or 11 characters get no bonus to Intimidate or, of course, any other Charisma-b...

Re: [CONAN] Question about DR

Just as food for thought, a couple of years ago someone on this very forum (I'm afraid I can't recall who) suggested an alternate way of using helms/helmets. I have not implemented or tried this alternate in my game, so I can't say whether it's good or bad but it's interesting nonetheless. I copy a ...

Re: [CONAN] Merchant Houses?

Well...there's a fair amount of empty space in the box itself. I suppose so you can conveniently store other sourcebooks inside. What you get is basically this: ---> A fluff book describing the city of Messantia (its history, geography, environs and personalities) in great detail. This is the best p...

Re: [CONAN] Merchant Houses?

There's a ton of info on all the Merchant Houses and Guilds of Argos in the Messantia, City of Riches box set. I read through that material before starting my campaign (which started in Messantia) and it proved invaluable. Well worth tracking down if the PCs in your game are or will be in that city ...

[CONAN] Sorcerous Instructor feat from Hyboria's Fallen

So, I was looking at this feat today and was quite surprised to notice that there are no prerequisites listed for it. I mean, as printed, you don't even have to have any levels in Scholar to be a Sorcerous Instructor! I figure this has got to be an oversight and was wondering what y'all think might ...

IIRC, it was originally an El Borak yarn titled "Three-Bladed Doom". Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken.

That's the idea. I only want the first few points (say, -1 to -3 or so) to represent being disabled most of the time. If a player wants a better chance, there's the Diehard Feat they can get. I brought this little option up with my group last Sunday. They all seemed to think it a pretty good idea. ...

There was both a hardcover and softcover edition, though I have no idea how extensive the print runs were on either one. I'd guess the softcover was produced in greater number.
