all B&W - thumbs down unnecessarily gratuitous art on every page - thumbs down Is it possible to have gratuitous anything in Conan? In the setting? No. In an RPG rulebook, certainly, yes. The fact that it's a picture of naked boobies doesn't bother me. But it does bother me when the art, whatever t...

all B&W - thumbs down unnecessarily gratuitous art on every page - thumbs down I didn't mind the art layout in the 1ed but the new style is just over the top. I'm not a conservative person by any means but I just don't need that in an RPG rulebook. These two issues will certainly keep me from buying...

Have you guys been playing it? Thoughts so far? I've been following the development somewhat but I didn't sign up for the beta (been playing DDO). I'm intrigued by what I've seen so far but it sounds very PvP-heavy, which I'm so-so on. I'd be willing to give it a try possibly, and I think a guild is...

I've been following the Age of Conan development a bit. It just got delayed until later this year I believe.

My take is that it looks like a pretty hardcore MMO. Very PvP-focused and guild-heavy.

No, that's the diameter of the outer ring.

The Conan adventure maps all lack scale, from what I've seen. You can calculate the circumference based on the information in the module though. It is noted therein that it takes the guards a certain amount of time to circle the outer ring, so you can take that time (X minutes) and typical walking ...

Tower of the Elephant - tower dimensions?

Ok, another map question...

I'm just wondering what people used for the overall dimension (diameter) of the tower?

I looked through the whole module and once again could not find anything resembling a map scale. Very annoying.

Yeah, I think I'm definitely going to redraw them too, at least for my own sanity. In the Temple of Jullah, I think I'm going to swap the last two rooms. Make the smaller one the forechamber and the big one the ritual chamber. Looks like a cooler layout for a big final battle. Maybe I'll make some b...

Conan module maps - why no scales?!?!

I have three modules: Tales of the Black Kingdoms, Tower of the Elephant, and Heretics of Tarantia. In all the interior maps, there isn't a distance scale on any of them. What gives? I mean I can guess but is it really that difficult to include a scale? It's bad enough they aren't done on a grid. Wh...

Fixed it for you: Miniatures=good. Imagination=good. I don't game without miniatures and I can't imagine how they would get in the way of "imagination". I guess if your players are so hung up on the miniatures themselves but I've never been in a game where the minis took away from the actual game it...

If you are going to lose them down the road, why take them in the first place? Not really the point but I suppose if someone wants a slight boost with Weapon Focus at lower levels or something. The book says "he immediately and permanently loses this feat". That leads me to believe he now has an op...

Barbarian 7th level lost feats - replaceable?

If you lose a feat (Weapon Focus, Imp Crit, etc) because you reach Barbarian 7, can those feats be replaced with something else?

For example, if I'm a Bbn 6 and have Weapon Focus, can I replace Weapon Focus with Power Attack upon reaching Barbarian level 7?

Thanks for all the info! Very helpful.

I ordered Heretics and Elephant and I might pick up Black Kingdom. That should keep me busy for a while.

What modules are considered to be "introductory" for both the setting and rules system?
