Very disappointing. :?
I have the 1st book, but am fearful of what will happen once I open it up (whether bad binding, or bad editing).
I will probably just sell my CE copy of FftD.

What's a "controller" in 4E?
Helps airplanes land. :roll:

I loved the ballsy-ness (sp?) of Dog Soldiers. It's amazing what they were able to do with a budget of--what was it?--£5 6p. :lol:

To do a Conan movie right this time it will require a BIG BUDGET and a VERY GOOD SCREENPLAY! Good luck getting those! :cry:

As a rule of thumb, take the "release date" and add at least three to four months. That should be more realistic. :)

Since many of the Conan books are fluffy, I could easily use them in my 1e AD&D campaign, with some discrete homebrewed fixes to the old system. The Barbarian class from Unearthed Arcana could work, IMHO. YMMV.

In high school Psychology we were taught that instinct is a distinctly animalistic quality and positively non-human. My Psych class was over 20 years ago. Does that idea still have currency? More importantly, what were the attitudes about instinct in humans which were current in REH's time in the ea...

Given what you all have seen with the BW illos and layout, etc. in the 2E core rulebook, do you think that the (presumably forthcoming) PDF will be more printer-friendly than the 1E was?

For Pilum I would use stats for light spear or somesuch and boost the AP by +1. You may have a rule that does not allow the pilum to be used more than once, since I have heard that the wooden shaft was designed to separate after impact from the metal half to keep the "barbarians" from throwing it ba...

There you go, Warhammer realms of Chaos was fantastic visually (and wonderful when I was a WHFRP player). THe quality of the artwork and fine detail rivaled that of Albrecht Durer (look him up, if you don't know). Dürer rocks! And Gustave Doré as well. 8) Let's get a Resurrect spell going and put t...

The problem with 3.x demons is that they're flesh-n-blood and have none of the necessary 'weirdness' that is common for Conan beasties, IMHO. However, I guess that stuff can just be roleplayed. YMMV.

I am not a fan of the "floating head" (or "class photo") school of cover art, but C.

Mr. Quilliams is the best thing to happen to Conan since Frazett...
