5) Rabindranath, I agree, 'Hyborian' refers to a culture. 'Hyboria' as I am using it refers to a geographical locale. I disagree with your surmise that the Hyborian nations cannot be gathered together due to the difficulties of map making. All the Hyborian nations are clustered together with the ex...

I personally don't have a problem with people referring to 'Hyboria'. There is a continent called Africa, filled with assorted African nations but ultimately (almost) everyone living there is African.Same with Europe. Therefore, using the same logic, that part of Howard's world where the Hyborians ...

Looks freakin awesome. Seriously. Bobby would have loved it. I'm not sure what people expect from a film about a one-dimensional pulp character. And Mongoose called it Hyboria all the time without anyone raising an objection. Howard never used the word Hyboria, simply because there is no land with ...

"Conan in a battle that decides the fate of the world" What's this crap?! A movie based on Hour of the Dragon would have been simply fantastic! There is all: sorcery, fights, politics, monsters, clash of armies. *sigh* Probably in another life... :cry: You know what I fear most? That a RPG will be c...

You could go the route of regional feats, like it's done in 3e Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting.
Actually, it's the route I would have preferred also in d20 Conan, since it's much easier mechanically, and much more flexible than having one pseudo-race for each region.

Why would you change how Dodge works? What's wrong with the original formulation? (I missed your "flip-flopping" I guess.)

@S4: nice recollection you have! How vivid can be the games, when they don't slow down due to the rules. That's one of the reasons I prefer rules-light games. @Kev: if you are just starting again DMing, you might want to use a lighter system than d20 Conan, which is anything but light. I have used w...

REALLY UNHAPPY with Dragon Warriors Revised

I bought the DW bundle which included the DW core revised. I thought the revision would have addressed all the errata, at least the one reported in the official document...I was wrong. This is really, really, REALLY annoying. For starters, the names on the Ellesland map have not been corrected: Mont...

Boneguard, IF you go the Adobe route then the standard should be sufficient for creating a simple book with added in images. If you are using Windows, a cheaper (ie free) alternative for you to try out is CutePDF. Back in my Windows days, that was one of the better free ones I could find. Well that...

I believe it was first released in 2009 over in France or Spain IIRC, then released in the UK in 2010. Still awaiting SK over here in the States for any kind of release. Just find it hard to believe that no distributor will release it over here, even in a straight-to-DVD form. Must be either tied u...

SK is a quite decent film; almost good, actually. A few imperfections here and there, but overall quite enjoyable. What, it came out already? I need to check out movie releases more often.

I have been hearing about the Solomon Kane movie, and news about it made reference to him battling a big ass CGI devil at the end of the movie. As awesome that that sounds, I cant help but to feel that the whole thing would just come off like one of those "big boss battles" you see ALLLLLL the time...

I might go a bit Lovecraftian here and use the actual Dreamland supplement and adapted it. The Dreamland is fairly tame and not so bad -compered to the rest of the Mythos- and can actually be quite pleasant. It may be that the dream land of the Hyborian age still hold Echos of the Thurian Age and o...

Re: [CONAN] Hirelings costs

Hey ya! I´was reading the costs of hire mercenaries, sages, whatsoever, and the table given in Tito´s Trading Post appears too "cheap" for me. Understand me, it´s logical in the case of purchase 100 soldiers lvl1 during 2 months, but not for hire an assasin for only one action... I´m thinking that ...

Conan combat is more complex due to armor absorbing damage rather than contributing to Armor Class, so each weapon has one more stat (armor piercing) which requires further calculations after an hit. Also there are two different types of AC (parry and dodge), plus there is a Magic stat. Finally ther...

Yes, definitely. I used the d20 Call of Cthulhu critters and spells to very good effect. The "sorcerer" template in that book makes for a very nice (and scary) alternative to the d20 Conan scholar. Actually, with a few tweaks, the d20 CoC game works as well (or better) than d20 Conan at doing Conan!...

I think Ichabod covered pretty much everything. I will add that (high level) NPC creation is a chore for the DM, who is supposed to spend lots of time detailing characters which 99% of the time are going to bite the dust, and use only a fraction of all the abilities they have. This aspect has had a ...
