Cool! Yeah, my biggest problem with my RPG collection is shelf space. I'm constantly bing-purging through whatever books I've got and have been doing that since the early 90's. I'd been gaming since the 70's so that first purge was the big one and it's been a Darwinian existence for the residents i...

I tried to read the rules to that game but I couldnt get into it that much. It seemed more complicated than it was worth.

How does the game actually play? Fun? How does it stack up to Mongoose Conan?

No, 4th edition.

You know, a popular system that everyone but us likes. Like that.

You know, Sprange, just about the only thing I could think of that could make me play 4ed would be a Sword And Sorcery/Weird Fantasy type setting. You just dont see that sort of thing from WOTC, which is chock full of the Tolkien ripoff stuff. I know we probably wouldnt get any more Conan, and I app...

Again I wish to stated that I enjoyed the d20 system. But the problem I had with Mongoose Conan were either the low quality or the WTF were they thinking supplements. Cimmeria and Khitai??????? Really, when you have people hammering for Turan! Or even a Black Kingdoms source book. How about a Zamor...

Mongoose is to blame, not fans or the licensing company. To claim RQ would sell better than D20 is kind of ridiculous, RQ will never ever be the future of gaming. It always has been and always will be a fringe system. I quite frankly don't blame the licensing company for blocking the move. They agr...

So wait a minute, either D20 is done or we get more of "Well if they go to RuneQuest, your d20 books dont disappear! You can still play it!" every time someone calls the D20 haters out on their nonsense. Which is it? Seriously? You cant see the difference about if a game is actively supported or dro...

Decent. I could just compile it from the big ass thread from back then, if push comes to shove, but Id rather not.

The Crimson Tome?

Years ago, when Raven Blackwell still frequented the boards, Raven did up a great fan-supplement full of Lovecraft monsters done up in the D20 Conan style, along with a bunch of cool spells. I downloaded it way back when, and now, one big reformatting later, Ive lost it. Raven never put it up for pu...

Come on, lets keep it civil. Sounds like you have some sort of unreasonable gripe. :roll:

Ill believe that theyre moving away from d20 when I see Matt come on the boards and announce it. No reading between the lines, no assumptions, no nothing. We THOUGHT we were getting atlases and other stuff like that, and we aint.

So until we hear it from the horses mouth, Im not assuming anything.

Yeah, there are still lots of things to do with the D20 license. Assuming, of course they havent ganked that too.

Id love to see the Empires book released.

Being a huge fan of LOTR, I looked ag the game, and stoped and wondered, wheres the game? Just a whole lot of very little, and not cheap either. Well, from what Ive read, the thing was light on both fluff AND crunch. And besides Conan, an LOTR game is one of the few where I WILL read the fluff to i...

What if they want MGP to do a Conan 4E game?

Matt said he was collecting comment. For years ICE published LOTR mods for MERP/Rolemaster. I cant believe they where not selling them as no company can afford to keep pouring out money for year after year on a product that loses them money. Particularly not a game company. Then the Licence got cha...

And 3 years ago Funcom managed to get the MMO Conan license until 2023 !! W. What the hell? Even Activision has to renegotiate with Paramount for the Star Trek license every few years.

And I dont understand people who play the D20 version saying they wouldnt touch a RQ version of Conan. Seems ridiculous to me. ??? It seems ridiculous to you that some of us thoroughly enjoy the d20 Conan game we have with the 40+ books released for the line (1e, Atlantean, 2e) and hundreds of hour...

Im D20 through and through, and even though I really am not interested in RQ in the least, my heart goes out to them who hoped so much for some RQ or SW stuff. Its too bad, to have it shot down not by economics or a editorial decision, but by the license holder. Ill be honest, I have no idea why the...
