Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

Has anyone experimented with using the Conan magic system, nearly as-is, with the D&D 5th Edition Rules? I did some, and it seems to me like it works well. How about converting the spells of Conan and categorizing them to place them on the D&D spell list according to level, using the spell-point co...

Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

Hi all! long time poster here from the days of d20 Conan. I am (slowly) working on a full conversion of d20 Conan to D&D 5e. The idea is to reproduce the d20 Conan classes in 5e terms, and take advantage of the much simpler rules framework of the latter. It won't be a 1-1 port, obviously; for examp...

Re: 3 questions about CONAN RPG

I don't know anything about RuneQuest. I have thought that the Call of Cthulhu Dark Ages game would be good for a Swords & Sorcery world like Hyboria. I got the GURPS Conan book and Queen of the Black Coast yesterday but have not read much of it yet. Recently, I have been experimenting with the DR a...

Re: 3 questions about CONAN RPG

I think Age of Conan has some of the best music ever. I tried some role-play, and had my character pay some others in silver pieces to help in a difficult quest. Apparently, it was going too slow for them, so they began discussing their real-world, lives, and they just left me there with no explanat...

3 questions about CONAN RPG

I have three questions: Has anyone been converting the Conan RPG to 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons? Does anyone here run Mongoose's CONAN RPG on Roll20? Does anyone here play the CONAN MMORPG? Concerning the 1st question: I am considering giving is a shot. I want to keep the spells and lose the DR ...

Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

I've only seen the pre-release booklet I mentioned in the OP. The key to S&S, as always, is to keep the "fantasy" to a minimum. Creatures are OK. But, go with fewer of them. Throw out the more magical beings, like the gelatinous cube. Go with a Wyvern over a dragon that casts spells. No demi-humans...

Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

I don't know if you have looked at 5th Edition much, but what advice would you give for turning that edition of D&D into a Sword & Sorcery game?

Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

You have a good system worked out there, indeed. I am feeling out this 5th Edition rule-set. A few moments ago, I tried an encounter with some ghouls. I simply removed their undead immunities. I thought that it worked well. I want to experiment with the CONAN RPG combat maneuvers for 5th. I really l...

Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

As an aside; I meant no offense. No offense taken! :D As far as the high ACs and stuff...that's why I keep leveling to a snail's pace in my Conan game. It's meant to be played at the lower levels. If a Savage Pict or one of Belit's black pirates are 1st to 3rd level, then that, right there, should ...

Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

Have you tried playing a Hyborean Age game using D&D 5th rules? No, I haven't. Why would I switch from Mongoose's awesome Conan RPG to something where I have to convert? That makes no sense to me. The Mongoose game is out of this world. It fits the Hyborian Age like a glove. It's a fantastic Conan ...

Re: [CONAN] D&D 5 Looks to be Compatible!

I haven't followed the birth of D&D 5. I've heard things here and there, sure. But, I've been uninterested in it. I play the Conan RPG, and I don't plan on switching. Today, though, I saw a posting that said that WotC had released a 110 page set of D&D Fifth Edition Basic Core Rules that contained ...

Re: [CONAN] More Hyborian Age Adventures? How About This?

Just got tipped off to this Kickstarter. It looks perfect for continuing support for your Conan games. The Pathfinder edition would translate easily to Mongoose's d20 Conan RPG engine. Check it out. Primeval Thule I am glad you posted this. I thought the least I could do would be to spread the word...

CONAN SWORD & SORCERY WITH HIGH-FANTASY RACES

I was wondering how the lot of you would approach the making of Elves and Dwarfs using the CONAN RPG 2nd Edition Rules. How would you make them more interesting than those of D&D and "better"? How would you fit them into a new Sword & Sorcery campaign world? How would you incorporate Mythos element...
