And so passes Conan RPG, the best fantasy world I've ever GMed. Shame really, so much potential now lost.

There are no words to express the sheer stupidity of the characters. No words at all. They have to be invented yet.

An atlas by Vincent. I wouldn't care less to wait an year or two for them, I would get them as soon as they were out. It was indeed a dream project, one that would probably become the best sourcebook for a setting ever. And now it's gone. I haven't felt this disappointed ever since Earthdawn 1st Edi...

For me, this wait will only be worthwhile if the announcement is that Vincent is back on the helm making Conan sourcebooks. All the new sourcebooks after Vincent left lack that Hyborian feel that really distinguishes Conan from all other fantasy RPGs, that makes Conan unique. Conan is becoming too b...

Solomon Kane trailer

Since it's related to Conan due to the fact that both characters were penned by Howard, take a look at the Solomon Kane trailer.

I'm not happy for another long cold wait, and I think it'll only pay off if Vincent is back writing the books. I've got all the books now and, to be honest, they're less than stellar to say the least. They are losing that special touch that makes Conan Conan, something that Vincent was able to do.

To be honest, I'm not really excited at this wait, again. Unless the surprise is Vincent back in the team.

And that's my point exactly. As you've said, it could have been worse. But it could have been much better too, if only they had kept Vincent on board, for instance. Did Mongoose drop Vincent? I know he hasn't been on any of the books lately but I thought he was finishing a degree or something. Well...

If you call a RPG Conan, you better follow the spirit of its inventor, otherwise call it a generic S&S RPG. It's not a question of flexibility, see Vincent's sourcebooks for instance, lots of flexibility there. It's just... I don't know, that brutal, raw feeling that one gets from reading Howard's ...

I voted excellent. I don't care in the slightest about colour vs B&W: I didn't buy it as a picture book! I like the improvements to the rules, and the adventures are excellent. As for the "Conan Feel": I think you have to be very careful about that. People get different things from Conan, and they ...

More fluff, less crunch.

More details on the Hyborian Age and its nations.

And bringing Vincent back.

3. People write about the "Conan feel" that has changed from 1st to 2nd edition. Maybe and maybe not this is not true. I'm a nerd and I took my 1st and 2nd edition books out side by side and read over them page by page. For the most part, the 2nd edition book is a "copy and paste" version of the 1s...

Time for measuring 2nd edition

Ok, a good deal of time since 2nd edition has been published I believe it's time for a small discussion about what you all think of the quality of all the books published so far, by their own and/or compared to the quality of 1st edition. Give away your opinions on how you feel about all published m...

Ah yes, the eternal euro vs AT debate showing up on a Conan board, of all places. Sorry to be that n00b but what is the "euro vs AT debate" ?. Hehe.
