The cover doesn't look very Aquilonian to me... zombies in peculiar kit, and looks like desert. Shem or maybe Zamora?

I am hoping it would be around Zamora, as my campaign is set in thereabouts, at least for now.

Yeah, Khitai does seem to be somewhat obscure and far away for a source book. I would have hoped for something a little closer to home, namely Nemedia which is pretty prominent in many Conan stories.

NPC (or PC for that matter) archetypes are not very interesting, are they though? NPC should be more than that, surely? An archetype might be a good starting point, but to make a memorable NPC villain (as many sorcerors are), they need to be individuals. I allow scholar types, and I don't see them a...

I ordered some from Gripping Beast. I think there are others but I liked those. Foundry doesn't make any, do they?

Oh, and Artizan Moors are really nice!

Conan with miniatures

How many of you folks use minis with your Conan RPG? I like to use minis in gaming, plus I like to paint them. There seems to be loads of barbarians and women in scanty clothes, but other stuff is more difficult to get. I ended up ordering various historicals for regular grunt types, and will spice ...

My group starts with a variant of the slave gig: all PCs have somehow ended as slaves, some captured by conquest, some are convicted felons, etc. As the play starts they're in slave caravan marching through some inhospitable terrain (haven't pinned the location down yet). So their mission is to esca...

I think I mentioned in another thread that a friend on mine (the one who sold me his Conan RPG stuff) is using Harnmaster for Conan games. As it is very realistic system I can see how it would very well for a gritty Conan game.

Ok, thanks for the responses folks. I already got most of the books I need anyway, so the need for pdfs is dimishing even as I write this. Was just curious about all this, doesn't seem very good business to me. But I am probably underestaming the market due to my own preferences.

Re: Buying PDFs?

I was looking at Drive Through RPG and RPG now (are these two related by the way?), and it seems they're selling Conan books at the same price as Mongoose is selling their hard copies, some pdf's even seem to cost more than Mongoose's paper versions! :shock: So what I am missing here, aren't pdf's ...

Ok- :wink:

Just to add, I am currently trawling all the LGSs for the books I want, but if they don't have them, I need to look abroad.

Buying PDFs?

I am pretty new with these pdf versions of RPG books, and was wondering if you could guide me with this?

I guess this is as good a thread to introduce myself as any: Hi folks, I just bought a big bunch of Conan RPG stuff from a friend of mine, who doesn't use them anymore (he uses Harnmaster rules for Conan, go figure. :roll: ) Anyways, I am happy to get them, and there certainly is a whopping load of ...
