Yes, and yes they certainly do. Again, the magic is the big problem. It tends to be a bit too spectacular for Hyboria. However, a careful blending of elements from CoC are a pretty good fix. The rest of Storrmbringer is actually spot-on for Conan. Especially the combat. It takes quite a bit of work...

Did anyone try to do Conan using Stormbringer for general rules (skills, classes etc.) and Call of Cthulhu (or Cthulhu Dark Ages) for spells and Sanity rules? I think they would work really, really well.

If only it didn't suffer from Gygax's writing style. 'Avatars' indeed. I looked at it, and serously considered it but couldn't get around that or what looked like a way oversimplified combat system, IMO. Just too much that seemed changed for no other reason than to look different. And 'oafs' for a ...

Not directly related to RQ, but since other game systems have been mentioned...I would say that a Conan game could be run really well with Lejendary Adventures by Gary Gygax. It is a rules-light system, it is percentile based, it is based on broad skill bundles (i.e., you do not have to buy skills r...

Nowhere it is written that these ancient undead were created using the current spells. Perhaps they are a leftover of Acheronian or Khari necromancy.

Re: Conan the Triumphant

Hi have the TSR7403 product, module CN3: Conan Triumphant module with the (stiff as usual) Boris cover of Conan, sword in hand, blond girl with horned helmet facing the three eyed minotaur. I have the three CN modules on pdf as I wrote. I've never read this one, but have used the other two (tsr7401...

Never played RuneQuest, I am looking forward to see how the system works. The experience with another skill-based system, GURPS Conan, was good. I hope it will be the same for RuneQuest.

Cheers,

Nice to hear from you, guys! Actually, I found the TSR Conan system to be really good, fast and furious fun. I also liked the sorcery rules. I do not think they were "incomplete". They were just "loose", so that each GM might taylor them to his/her campaign. I had real fun GMing campaigns under this...

Conan in other game systems

Is anyone using other game systems for Conan games? I have the Conan Atlantean Edition of the game, yet I cannot stand the 3e rules system (despite being one of the playtesters/contributors), so I use it mainly as a source of inspiration. Actually, I have devised a set of house rules for the AD&D 1e...

Ok, so it should be assumed that the Scholar is not proficient in any armor type. The SRD explicitly reports when a class is not allowed proficiency in an armor type.

Anybody can use armour, the problem is for scholars, they would suffer a spell failure chance, on top of the non-proficiency penalty (armour check penalty applied to all your attack rolls etc.) So yes, they can wear armour, but should they? Probably not! Yes, but in which kind of armor are they sup...

Scholars and armor proficiency (Conan RPG Atlantean Edition)

In the Scholar writeup, it is written that he is proficient with all simple weapons. After the small sentence, it is reported the (usual) paragraph about armor penalties. The problem is, NOWHERE IT IS WRITTEN whether Scholars can use any type of armor. In any case, there is an error. SO: are Scholar...

Re: Hyboria with Clerics

In my last Conan campaign I stuck to the standard D&D classes, so there was a rather powerful (healing) priest of Mitra and a Wizard from Khitai. So there may be some Healing/battle magic woes from the party this time through. We ll see. However they really embraced the lack of magic items and magi...

[quote="Mijoro"]One of the potential problems in my group is that there are only two people (myself and a player) who have read any REH. The other players only know Conan from the movies and comics. How do you introduce REH's Hyboria without saying "Go read the books before we play" ? Hello, well, I...

In fact there are lots of rules in Unearthed Arcana which may be useful, one for all using 3d6 instead of d20 (with some necessary modifications), the use of generic classes, and, for those who play "standard" D&D campaigns, a welcome return to the old exponential experience point system, which disc...
