Hmmm... I just downloaded this, and there was no cover art - just red text on a white background.
Get the latest version of Adobe Reader. This PDF was made using InDesign and file reduced using Adobe 6.0. You need the latest version of Adobe Reader. Then you can see the pretty cover :)

And I thought I started young... :)

Wow, and I thought that starting at age 12 was pretty young, especially since I went to a religious school in a religious/conservative community that thinks everything in the world that is fun is, also, inherently evil. :) Also, it was hard to find players, so I taught 'em from the ground up.

Hi Azza, I like your suggestions. Since I'm already on a kick as relates to alternative classes for Conan, I will tackle the Nordheimer Ravager next. :) originally by Yoki-Boy Yah vell, mah Nordheimer barbarian is already a tank at 2nd level.

Yeah, well, for some reason every sorceror in scrolls of skelos regarding to power points looks something like this... Sorceror: 20th level, Wis 18 Power Points: 14 (6 base, +4 Wis, +4 Scholar) Total Power Points: 56 the point is that Scrolls of Skelos has NPCs with a 6 base, not a 4 base, as per re...

did anyone notice that the base Power Points in Conan is 4 (+Wis mod + class modifier) but in Scrolls of Skelos all the NPC sorcerers have a base 6 (+ Wis mod + class modifier)?

Does anyone know if Mongoose wants scholars to have 4 or 6?

I've had a similar house rule as Bampf's.

Except the player rolls a die, and the GM rolls the other. Highest of the two no matter what. I like having players make increases in HP. That means battles last longer and I don't feel bad about sending demons after them :)

Well, in the Conan stories weapon-crafting isn't hugely prominent one way or the other, but the rules as written seem reasonable. Of course, it isn't a very appropriate skill for a Conan PC to have anyway. -Faraer Hmmm.... while the 1982 smash film of the year isn't embraced by Howard elitists, it ...

Hmm... some people voted to keep the Craft (swordsmith) skill but fail to reason why. Is it just blind obedience to the rule book? Or is the poll position dead on for your argument? The other side of the sword emphasis on Akbitanan weaponry should be noted however... The Akbitanan weaponry also stat...

Craft Skill Question/Critique

Why Craft (swordsmith)? For the craft skill, there is craft (armoursmith), craft (bowyer) and craft (weaponsmith). These skills take care of making armour, bows and weapons. But in two instances, Mongoose has a “Craft (swordsmith)” in print. The first is in the prerequisite for the Akbtitanan Smith ...

While the fans may have a good grasp on house ruling this subject... when i read the minimum 1 damage rule, i interpreted it to mean after the DR of Armor was calculated (but not a barbarian's natural skin DR extraordinary quality). However, what immediately popped in my head was a fully armored kni...

aye, but a player still "pays" for those background skills by their racial selection. nothing is ever free-> just cleverly balanced between choices. For instance, say you wanted to make a Stygian Soldier. Those background ranks in traditionally magic complentary skills might not be as valuable as sa...
