But it could still lead to super-creatures, which would spoil the effect. An upper limit for the number of such a companion's levels should be kept to prevent that.

Re: Hey everybody, i'm new here and need some answers.

1. Is it me or characters sheets are a real piece of crap? They don't even get spaces to put XP. No place for spells. What's that? Are we supposed to have some white sheets for extra informations like XP? How come they haven't changed it yet? Like Ichabod, I prefer my own designs. However, I do use...

So the "Sands of Death" title's still free to be used elsewhere. It would look really good on the cover of a book with desert adventures (Stygia, Shem or other similar lands).

On a side note, did anyone else automatically think "DOGMEAT!" when they saw this article for the first time? :D I thought of Slasher before even reading the introductory fragment of REH :) You may be right about the feats. I had similar feelings while reading the article. It has been a very useful...

Too much of dice rolling in my opinion. I would see that book as a tavern guide, detailing one to several such places most typical for any given region. I'd like to get a description of the furniture often seen inside, list of some specific meals and beverages, prices, that kind of things. (no, I'm ...

There's this. It was on the internet, so it must be true: Let's hope so. I've been toying with that idea of a large council making decisions by majority voting and trying to find some fancy mechanics to perform it. It's a tricky matter, though, and for the time being I simply use the "narrated" pro...

"Man's best friend"

The new S&P is out now and it's got two Conan pieces inside. :D Apart from a adventure there's an article about canine companions, which got me thinking. I've never travelled through the Hyborian world with a feather-covered or a four-legged or any other similar creature. Maybe I'll give it a try no...

If you happen to speak german, try the german translation of GURPS Conan - they corrrected and added a lot of the Conan Background by the aid of a Conan "specialist" :-) Haven't heard of that translation. I take it it's a fan-made work. Is it available online? My German's pretty rusty now but I cou...

Gurps Lite, I believe. Yep, that's the one. My interest in these books is primarily for mining ideas for my Conan d20 game. Sounds like the individual adventures are the way to go. Hopefully there are no satyrs in those like there are in the main book. If you're looking for ideas, you can simply re...

First of all: hi everybody, it's my debut in this forum although i've been visiting it for quite some time now. Yes, I know the solos and I'm very fond of them. They keep the atmosphere of original Howard's stories pretty well and provide much fun as games. They sure are worth buying and occasional ...
