How are they treated differently in Pathfinder? 1. You can't have more ranks in a skill than your character level. 2. Class skills get a +3 bonus modifier once purchased. It's a modifier though, not ranks, so pre-reqs for things like Prestige Classes typically need to be scaled down a bit. Benefits...

Thus far, I've been keeping my Pathfinder separate from my Conan. That said, while at first read, the Pathfinder skill system didn't wow me, it's won me over. It's more intuitive for players and I find I don't end up with the occasional missed skill point. More importantly, allocating skill points f...

No, I would not switch to Savage Worlds. Just not my cup of tea.

About the only RPG that I'd even consider (and even then it'd be a long shot) for Conan other than the Conan OGL game is FantasyCraft.

Nor did I think it would.

Torn Asunder is what you want if you're looking for something near the visceral Rolemaster experience. Not sure if it exists in PDF form but if you can find a copy, pick it up!

No, at least not yet.

Currently, I'm utilizing Torn Asunder for gory-crit-goodness. However, I'll be trying these soon with my Pathfinder game and they may work their way into my Conan game.

HUGE thumbs-up!

This is exactly what I was looking for in this supplement. While it's still a pity it won't sit on my shelf in a place of honor, I'm THRILLED to have the material.

True. However "ready to go" doesn't necessarily equate to "will make it into the magazine". Since the Conan RPG is effectively dead from a print perspective, there's nothing preventing Mongoose from bumping Conan articles in favor of articles supporting active lines. I suspect Conan articles, despit...

In general - I agree. I take a similar approach yet it's not quite as hard-coded as what you're suggesting. My default assumption is the NPCs earn an XP per day. A 20-yr veteran is going to be higher level than a 18-yr old conscript. Regardless of the specifics chosen, I wholeheartedly agree with th...

1. Kingdoms of Kalamar Categorized by some as "Greyhawk done right" (with respect to internal consistency), it's a medieval setting that assumes a lower magic/power curve than standard D&D, i.e. the setting was not developed for D&D, it was adapted to it later. I've been running my primary campaign ...

Conan RPG: My view of how it might have lasted longer.

(Long-ass post warning!) As anyone familiar with my posts already knows, Conan OGL is the only Conan RPG I am interested in purchasing & supporting. The game is what brought me back to d20-based gaming after more than a decade spent playing other systems. Conan, for me, is the definitive Swords-n-So...

Barring an official announcement citing a change of heart to publish the books in PDF or an offical listing of what content will appear in each S&P issue, I suspect we'll only get a few token articles. I don't believe that's the intent, I just think that as each issue is put together, content for sy...

Mongoose knows that a lot of Conan players are crossing over into other genres provided by MGP.. <snip> Sadly, no. I'm still purchasing Conan books that I don't have. Aside from that, my gaming dollar goes towards Pathfinder, FantasyCraft, and Spycraft and the occasional GURPS book. So aside from C...

Core vs. Books

Are the Traveller Books (0-?) basically subsections/breakouts of the core rulebook or all-new expansion material separate from the core?

Re: Am I the only one who would play the Conan RPG sans Cona

I admit that the Conan name is the only reason I ever picked Conan D20 up, and I really wish Mongoose could keep the license, but I still wish Mongoose would continue on with D20. The rules for the Conan RPG kick DND's butt, and kicks the butt of every RPG this side of Alternity for that matter. If...

I think Pathfinder would have to be more than slightly adapted. It addressed 3.5's class balance problems by powering up all the classes, which removes it farther from the inherent grittiness of Hyboria than even 3.5 is. It would require at least as extensive a rewrite as 3e needed to fit the Conan...
