As I see it now the Conan D20 OGL product line has had its day....there will be (and should be) a 'swan song' of material that was in the pipe work. I cannot see Mongoose pitching to renew the license using D20 OGL. there lies madness and loss. I would hope that Mongoose will gear up for a Runequest...

So what next for conan?

So what next for Conan? If mongoose still have a license what can they do with it. Stick with D20. Move on to a RQ edition? Exactly what will CPI allow them to do? I would really like to see a Steel and Sorcery SW game which is essentially Conan with the serial numbers filed off. Then release a coup...

I was designed to allow peoplle (with busylives) to get into good fun and fast play roleplaying with elegance of design.

Dear Paradox...

I sent this email fwiw... Dear Paradox Recently on the Mongoose publishing (Conan RPG) forums the news was related that Paradox had pulled plans to allow Mongoose to publish 3 new Conan RPG products scheduled for release in 2010. These are: 1. A Savage Worlds system Conan RPG 2. A leather bound Rune...

I do feel for the Mongoose team right now. This news is such a crying shame the more I think on it. I really think the Licensors are in talks with someone like fantasy Flight games on a new license deal. FFG have the board game license they produce top quality rpgs - they must be in talks by now. Ma...

Mathew Your plans for Conan (RQ and Savage worlds etc) would have been simply Awesome and Wonderful and far far beyond my expectations. Ths would have been the deal of the century. I would have purchased all in an instant. I sincerely hope this situation can be resolved. Where does this leave you? C...

FOR A WHILE THOUGHT THAT SALMON LEAP AND LEG SPEAR THROW ETC SHOULD BE LEGENDARY ABILITIES BUT THEN I READ THE COMIC STRIP WHERE SLAINE WAS LEARINING THESE AS A 'WEE BOY' AS TRIBAL SKILLS AND REALISED THEY WERE SKILLS - OF COURSE I GUESS WITH ENOUGH SKILL YOU COULD DO SOMETHING LEGENDARU WITH THEM! ...

This is brilliant. Super support for DW. Its a very well put together zine with great content. I think what is especially wonderful is the contribution by Dave Morris on the nature of fey in DW. Inspiring stuff and well done to all.

Thanks for posting - yeah thats a good approach. Kinda annoying that RQ Slaine whilst being a better fit system wise (IMO) manages to miss these little things and gives a feel of being a little less thorough than D20 Slaine was. Additionally surprising when both books were penned by the same author;...

DRuids AWE in RQ SLAINE

Hi
Have I missed it. Is there a rule regarding Druids Awe (a will test for anyone to attack a Druid due to cultural restrictions in doing so) in RQ Slaine . There is in D20 Slaine: maybe I have a blind spot?
Cheers
