I'm surprised and disappointed that Sprange has not condescended to render an explanation. He cannot hear our questions over the klinking of his shekels.

LW gamebooks in PB format

Hi all! It's been a very long time since I was last here, but I wanted to drop in and ask if there has been any progress made in releasing the LW books in paperback at all? A few years ago I bought the HB "collectors edition" of FftD but was very dismayed at the exceedingly tight binding and decided...

I was not happy with the mass combat stuff produced by MGP, so I turned instead to the much, much better d20 Cry Havoc (Malhavoc Press). For crunchier rules I turned to WRG's 3000 BC to 1485 AD (6th ed.) wargaming rules which work terrific for REH's quasi-historical Thurian Age. 8)

The game should be totally overhauled to suit a simpler ruleset to ensure a wider target demographic. The d20 system is far too much accounting and too light on role-playing. * A variety of people online are rewriting Classic Traveller for Fantasy/S&S use. This might work, with liberal alteration of...

There are some mechanics in 1E D&D that I have never used, nor known anyone else to employ, as weapon speed and armour class adjustments to attacks (PHB, p. 38 ). I have always regarded them as somewhat peripheral and optional. YMMV.

Crikey! That's a lot of time better spent on other things, IMHO.

My personal opinion is that CONAN THE RPG became too cumbersome. The beauty of ADD was that it was always contained in 3 books. Conan always expanded, whether it was Faith and Fervour, Free Companions, or even (my fave) Skrolls of Skelos, to make matters even WORSE they decided to do a 2nd edition....

Greetings!
The Conan threads have tons of great information on the game, and, just to be on the safe side if you have time, start squirrelling away whatever may look valuable. I'd start by doing searches for Vincent Darlage's posts, and any fan-made character write-ups or sorcery creations.

I saw this coming over the horizon some time ago, so no big surprise there. It was THE best fantasy/sword-n-sorcery use of the d20 system I've ever seen, and it couldn't last forever. There will be other rules, other tables to sit at, other dice to roll. Conan didn't weep, so I won't. Well, lads, it...

NPC Reactions

How does MGT handle NPC reactions?
I searched the SRD, but could not find any such mechanic to deal with this.
Is there relevant material in the published books not in the SRD?

S&P Traveller Submissions

Greetings!
I'd like to ask if MGP accepts article submissions for S&P from freelancers, or if they only publish work from house-writers. If they do accept such work, to whom may I inquire?

yeah, I'd like to see someone do Conan in the way Master and Commander was done, a mish-mash of storylines from various O'Brian books, but staying true enough to the flavour of the writing and only changing the essence of the characters a little (Aubrey was just a bit too 'matey' with his officers ...
