[CONAN] Ferocious Attack Q

If I have a Pirate with Power Attack or something like Charge, can I use either of them when I declare my ferocious attack? For example, a level 2 with 13 str using power attack and a one handed weapon has the following with Ferocious Attack: (Ferocious Attack) +2 Init. for the first round +2 To Att...

Re: [Conan] The Barbarian (2011)

I was always of the opinion that it should be done Mini-series style, a-la Shogun.

[CONAN] Zombies and Raise Corpse Question

Two quick questions: 1) The duration for Raise Corpse says "Concentration + 1d6 Rounds". Does this mean the base concentration check (Ranks + Ability + Misc Mods) or does the sorcerer have to make a check? Does he have to concentrate each round? In either case it doesn't look like these corpses stic...

[CONAN] Schools of Fence

So in the Argos and Zingara book, I discovered the Zingaran school of fence. I have not used it yet, and I'm not exactly a top analist so I can't really say how crunchy it is. Don't have the book here at work, but I've been meaning to start a diologue on it for a while now. I know Howard kept the de...

[CONAN] Magic missiles and other damaging spells

I read through the sorcery section of the main rule book just now. I saw a few spells that do HP damage, but I didn't spot any that fell into the traditional RPG direct damage projectile spells - the magic missiles, acid arrows, firebolts and the like. Could be that I missed them, however - it is ra...

Re: [CONAN] Does It Fit?

Hasn't come up in my games yet. I think there is a rule regarding resizing in the main rule book, but I can't look it up at the moment. There was, in the later middle ages, a thing called munitions armour: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munition_armour Basically it was a mass produced bit of armor, ty...

Re: [CONAN] Conan Morality

Indeed. He is little more than an abnormally strong and tough person carving himself a slice of the world. He does not put on airs, does not try to give us some kind of "black and white" hero. This is why he's interesting.

"Conan is the damnedest bastard there ever was." about sums him up.

Re: [CONAN] Conan Morality

Well, he certainly falls into the "gray" category from what I've read. The Conan 'verse in general lacks an absolute good to aspire to, so it generally seems to fall into simply "What's good for me and those of mine". While Conan will keep his word unless double crossed and will help those he direct...

Non-Sorcerous Scholar Backgrounds

The Background feature for the scholar pertains to their magical knowledge. In any of the splat books is it covered regarding a replacement (feat, skills, etc) for this when creating a non-magical Scholar? Seems most pertinent to NPC's (slightly OCD about completionism) but it would also be useful f...

Re: [CONAN] "Kosher" Technology?

In my slightly alternate Cannon (as every game session would be), one of the islands far off the coast of Zingara (rulebook mentions some) is inhabited by Khitai outcasts, which have very limited contact with the Thurian continent (mostly Messentia). One of the ship captains is unscrupulous and is s...

Re: [CONAN] Commoner and PC's as Commoners

Thanks. I've heard about people running commoner campaigns, but would never do it myself. The characters aren't supposed to be commoners - they're great heroes/villains, kings, warriors, and conquerors. They aren't supposed to be the dirt farmer from down the road. At best, they would start out as c...

[CONAN] Commoner and PC's as Commoners

In an effort to see how others DM (having never really been a player in any d20 game), I am working to get a friend of mine (a player in a Conan d20 game I DM'd) to run a game in which I am a Zingaran Commoner who works as a porter/dock worker and occasionally as a knife-man (murderer for hire).

Re: [CONAN] Optional Weapon Length Rule

The best one I'd figure. For added randomness you could roll a d4 - even is a parry with the main hand, odd with the off hand.

Re: [CONAN] Shooting or Throwing into Melee

If you miss, roll a d4. Even = Miss wide. Odd = hit your friend.

Re: [CONAN] Sunder or Lock Weapons?

If the weapon is in my opinion either larger than the defender's or isn't of a type that conducts too well to parry, it goes to the sunder thing. If they're matched, it's a lock.

Re: [CONAN] Pseudo-History And The Hyborian Age

All very observant and or creative, but I'd like to point out a technicality - you can't have pockets of Christians in Shem during Conan's time - Christ won't exist for another ... ten or so thousand yars. Or more. Thinking maybe pockets of Jews?
