I'm crushed. It sounds like a perfect solution and I would get back to buying Conan Rpg books in a heartbeat. This is insane.

I think there may be a hint of overreaction here. Can we really not last a few months without a new book without doom gloom and armageddon? Maybe I'm overreacting and I could blame everything on the lack of time to re-learn d20 or read non-essential books. I don't know, seriously. But let's ask us ...

Am I the only one who thinks it's odd that someone would stop playing a RPG just because supplements cease to come out? As I said, I'm not selling my books because of the wait, at least not directly. Both Long Cold Waits just made me re-think my RPG purchases and habits. It turns out that to run Co...

(...) months and months of no material can kill off a game. No kidding. The first LCW made me stop buying new Conan RPG books. Now I'm selling the ones I have, keeping only the Return to the Road of Kings. I'm still going to run Conan games, but I think I'm done with Mongoose Conan. I'm not saying ...

Can't be true, because it does not follow the "Something of Somewhere" title formula. ;)

I guess it comes down to if your time converting the game saves you time playing the game in the long run. I expect the conversion to be quick and painless. We're not carrying anything over from the old campaign, I don't need rules for sorcery - pretty much all I need is to take generic Savage Worl...

Scholars... I just don't let my players use magic. At all. I keep sorcery NPC-only. For the re-start of my campaign I plan to just scrap the whole magic system altogether and give sorcerer NPCs spells (converted from Mongoose Conan or entirely made-up) as I find suitable. Hopefully it'll make magic ...

I'm preparing to re-start my Conan campaign after a 1 year break and I find re-learning the rules difficult. The basic "roll d20 against a target number" rule is simple, but there are so many modifiers, exceptions and additional mechanics (grapple, feats, special abilities) that it's overwhelming. I...

Never got into 2ed. It looks like it's losing focus, getting a little generic and crunch-oriented.

Well, people usually say "this summer" if they mean 2008 and "next summer" if they mean 2009, at least where I live :D And when you say to someone I see you next time, does this mean you have to see him/her twice? :wink: No, just as when a doctor says "Neeext!" he doesn't mean the second guy in the...

As an aside, I guess the use of the word "next" confused me. At least where I come from, some people use "next" (Friday, for example) to mean "not the upcoming Friday, but the next Friday [after the upcoming one]". I'm against this use of the word ("next" should mean the "next", period), but I gues...

The description mentions only "beasts and other entities" and there is this Heroes & Villains book coming up, so I guess the Bestiary contains only non-human adversaries.

Yeah, last Sunday I needed a generic pre-generated Kushite sorcerer and I thought "Damn, there should be a bestiary with pre-generated villains". Great idea for the lazy!

Yeah, it seems odd that half-mythical countries with little to no backround information get releases before Turan, Vendhya, Black Kingdoms or even Nordheim.

Do you really think 2e was a worth-while clean up? I haven't bought the new books because of price versus aesthetic. I plan to finally buy 2ed but not for the content. I just need a new one, so my players can use the old pre-Atlantean Edition at will :D. I don't really need a rules clean up, as I'm...

I blame The Long Cold Wait. It showed me that I can live without buying a Conan book every month. Also, I have yet to use most of the supplements on my shelf, so Shem, Argos/Zingara and all 2ed. stuff can wait (well, I would like to buy Shem, but my local shop does not have it and I am too lazy to g...
