I just write it in empty space next to the appropriate skill total window with a note describing circumstance. It doesn't change in time so it can be wrtten in small print with a pen.

Just finished reading Vincent's kind contribution. Just as I was deemed to, I enjoyed Governments and Military sections the most. But Foreign Ambassadors in Turan, that is something totally unexpected and most welcome addition.

Thanks. I really enjoy the list you made, so it'd be disapointing to learn that it's no longer supported.

I am not a big fan of these critical hit rules. I do like critical hits that do more damage and I think it is okay if PCs take permanent damage instead of dying but otherwise they are only important for the PCs - and hindering them.

While on a raid, it is possible that some warriors use the opportunities the victory brings but I'd limit such behaviors mainly to those who don't have a woman of their own at home. So...if your village was raided by another Cimmerian clan, and women were taken, you're thinking that they'll probabl...

Now that I'm back from doing what has previously interrupted my answering to the topic: [quote=Supplement Four]What I'm curious about is the dichotomy in Cimmerians. They raid and pillage, but do they rape, pillage and plunder? Or, do they just pillage and plunder.[/quote] My opinion is they don't.....

Re: An "Adult" themed thread about Cimmerians

In Offutt's Conan The Mercenary , there is a stunning scene where Conan would have raped the Temptress in the story had she not been so willing (she was raped later by the bad guys). It started as rape, but the target didn't resist. A similar scene of a would-be rape is depicted by Offut (again) in...

I, on the other hand, enjoyed most the part with desert combat and the arrival of those camel-riding Shirki or whatever they were called. Apart from that I don't care who the writer is provided that he has an interesting story and serves it in an interesting manner. That doesn't change the fact that...

Whatever. I don't need any more rules sets but I'm craving for every bit of background so if those RQ books bring good measure of it, I'll give them a try.

It does actually. You roll the damage multiple times and add the ST bonus to every single one. Then you sum the whole lot up.

"best work" And that's the problem. It's a purely subjective list, no matter who creates it.

To be fair, I was not convinced that Belit was the love of Conan's life as Howard told it in Queen of the Black Coast. Strong, life-altering LOVE did not make it was across the page to me. Casual acquaintances come back from beyond the grave to save each other all the time, after all. It was HER fe...
