I used the cards in my last game, and it felt in fact very awkward to suddenly pull out the deck for such a rare instance.

Next time I intend to use the "Warrior's companion" critical wound system.

My favorite supplements are the two with "Road of Kings" in the title.

Easily the most impressive coverage of Conan's world, THE supplement(s) that convinced me it would be an awesome game.

Thanks a lot, really. I've always been a supporter of your Conan line from the first to the last product available. The work everyone at Mongoose has put into the line is awesome and deserves to be highly praised. Glad to see that instead of the slow death we all feared, the Conan rpg line goes with...

You're kidding right ? The Middle-Earth roleplaying game was published from 1984 to 1999 (15 years !). Conan was published for 6 years with some 40 products. Hardly the failures you describe. If anything, it's Mongoose that proved the licence could be a rolepleying success. TSR's Conan was a failure...

Experience has showed me I'm weak-minded enough to buy everything labelled "Conan", or "Babylon 5" for that matter (I purchased all second edition books after I swore I never would + the Traveller version of B5 even if I didn't own the Traveller rules back then). But I won't use Runequest 2 rules, t...

The career system is to vague to be of any use. I prefer skills and I know my players, games would turn into endless negociations instead of fun (of course my thief career has taught me how to ride camels).

Merci pour la précision. Par contre il n'y a pas un souci au niveau du prix indiqué sur le site ? 28£ le demi-bestiaire de 120 pages en noir et blanc et à couverture souple ça parait un peu cher. Est-ce que Armes et Equipements va suivre la même voie ? Sera-t-il édité en deux fois lui aussi ? A ce r...

Fiche de personnage Traveller ?

Bonjour,

ça y est j'ai acheté mon exemplaire de Traveller en français, j'espère qu'on sera très nombreux à en faire autant !

Est-ce qu'on pourra avoir la fiche de personnage en téléchargement sur le site ?

EDIT : j'ai vu que c'était fait, merci beaucoup ! :D

Pouvez-vous nous donner une idée du suivi de la gamme ? Apparemment, il n'y a rien de prévu au planning d'ici le mois de mai. Allez-vous sortir l'écran qui lui au moins ne nécessite pas un gros travail de traduction ? Le livre de base permet-il de jouer en l'état ou faut-il un supplément d'univers p...

Paranoia est plus une « niche », car impossible de jouer en campagne, et le jeu s’épuise très vite dans la pratique, alors investir dans plusieurs bouquins pour jouer 1 fois par an …. Traveller, donc. Je ne sais pas pour vous mais il y a bien longtemps qu'avec mes joueurs on a laissé tomber l'illus...

Les Français je ne sais pas, moi je préfèrerais Traveller parce que ce jeu n'a jamais eu de traduction en français, et que j'adore les jeux de science-fiction. Principal souci : les Français ne sont pas très branchés "space-opéra", il suffit de voir les séries télévisées du genre, toutes reléguées s...

Sad day. My first post here in 2003 was about the soon-to-be released Conan rpg.

Thanks to everybody for all the great work every author delivered on the Conan line. I'm p...

I consider Victory Games' James Bond one of the best role-playing games ever published. I still use it with my fellow players, and it's the most perfect blend of rules and setting I've ever experienced. The flavor of Bond movies, even with more than one player, and even if Bond himself is nowhere to...

If the decision is indeed motivated by the extra profit that a future film might have on the license price, it’s at best a short-term goal, and certainly not adapted to the role-playing game market. No movie that I can think of, short of Star Wars, has ever generated enough attention to produce long...

Let’s not forget Conan failed as a rpg twice before Mongoose bought the license (three times if you count the AD&D modules). If a Conan rpg has any chance to shine and be commercially viable, it’s only because Mongoose proved it and none other, by their hard work and the release of 40+ books to sust...

Mutants and Masterminds too comes to mind. And the last licensed rpgs from DC and Marvel didn't do that well. Golden Heroes is a blast. I've played many superhero rpgs and it's the most fun I've ever had with any of them. It's addictive and fun to play. It's not the game with the most impressive rul...

Seems like they gave you no real reason for this decision other than “Stop everything right now”. A shame, really. They told you what you shouldn’t do, did they even suggest anything you should do ? It’s probably business secret, but if you are close to the renewal of the license, would it be possib...
