Sometimes when we only have one or two players, we'll have each player play a couple of different characters. You loose a litttle of the "personality", but it works just fine if each person only controls two, or even three, characters. It can be cool for a person to play a scholar (or whatever class...

What I love: -The game really captures the feel of REH's books -Armor DR vs AC -The more mature feel to the game -The Sourcebooks and products are great, with more to come -I don't think it has been mentioned yet (sorry if I missed it), but the Mongoose Conan Forum (yes, this one) is fantastic. The ...

I don't have that specific adventure myself. But, whenever I encounter a situation like this, I either simply cut back on the number of guards/priests there are or have some of them take another action instead of coming to the fight. Maybe some of the guards are sleeping one off, or escorting some o...

It depends on where you want to take your campaign from here. If your looking for a detailed city from which to launch some adventures (pirates) you might want to look at Messantia. If you have some ancient cities/ruins in mind, Ruins of Hyboria would be better. My favorite though, is Across Thunder...

I'm not sure I would need a bestiary. Most of the bad guys in my adventures are humans (sorcerors, soldiers, bandits, etc.), with an odd demon/monster thrown in here and there. These we ususally make up as we go, with whatever abilities we think are appropriate, but mostly to give the players a good...

I agree with having all of the barbaric races start out illiterate. There will certainly be exceptions among unique individuals, but for the most part reading and writing would have little value in these societies. They could always have picked up a small amount of reading and writing, especially th...

I've got a lot of the S&P Conan articles, so I wasn't planning on getting the Compendium when it came out. Now I see that there is some new material in the Compendium (a couple of new Adventures - The Children of Jullah, and The God in the Bowl). So maybe I will pick it up when it comes out. Plus, i...

I've got to agree with SlaugherJ. If I need a specific effect for a setting or campaign, I just do it and don't worry about having the perfect spell from the rulebook. Most of the people I play with are okay with it, as it is the fun and setting (and unpredictability) of the Conan game that appealed...

The only magic items we have in our game are one time use items, or a weapon that once it serves it's purpose (like slaying a particular monster/demon), it is destroyed or no longer retains it's magical properties.

With a small number of players, we'll usually have each player play two characters, instead of having a bunch of NPC around. If there still isn't enough characters for a particular adventure, we'll just pare down the number of obstacles/oponents to make it a little more even. If we do have some NPCs...

I've been reading a lot of my old Conan pastiche lately also.

I'm a sucker for all things Conan and pirates, what can I say? Neither book is very good, but stil...
