Man! Seems like only yesterday that Mongoose launched the Conan RPG. It has been a great ride. Thanks to Mongoose for creating the definitive Conan RPG (IMHO). I've had a blast playing your game - knocking out suckers & lighting up chumps in the Hyborian Age. Please give us a warning before you take...

QFT. If the 'Goose license runs out w/o a Turan supp then it will be akin to an unfinished Chris Quilliams Conan cover. So close.

I bet you go see the movie on the opening weekend. :wink: :D CPI's loyal lapdog speaks. I had previously suspected that the movie would be "Age of Conan: the Movie" but this is even worse. I will not pay to see this atrocity. I was just joking - thus the emoticons. Seriously, CPI is not the final s...

Conan Characters Revealed for the New Conan Movie

Exclusive - Conan Characters By Clint Morris (Monday, October 26th, 2009 at 8:07 pm ) We got our frighteningly-dry hands on the casting breakdowns for uncle Avi's "Conan" reboot today. Thought you Gaspari Nutrition SizeOn guzzlers - and film fans - might like a gander. (Interesting to note that the...

While we're on the subject of supplements, though, am I right in thinking that The Black Stones of Kovag-Re and The Coming of Hanuman were only ever available as PDFs? I have them as such, as well as the AE core book, but was wondering if they'd ever been available in hardcopy. That is correct Kev ...

I play a non-conformist Mac necromancer 10th level. He is sweet except his class is not by his choice but by Funcom's refusal to think outside the box and include the Mac OS.

WAR jumped on board recently with a Mac trial - mayhap someday AOC will also join the 21st century. Lame!

I agree the Mongoose forums are fun and well moderated. But, free speech is simply inaccurate. This is a private forum. It is not a right to post here but a privilege and there is no such thing as free speech since Mongoose decides what is appropriate and what is not, what gets deleted and what does...

Re: Bennies?

Really? I was trying to be polite and state that there are good games and game companies out there but that does not mean they will do Conan well. Bennies? Really? After two years you are excited about bennies? Dude. Your post was polite - I was just being honest that it is a somewhat jumbled & uni...

What hurts is figuring out your post. :D Company makes good RPG product = may not do a good Conan. Pinnacle & SW = great Mongoose & RQ = great SW & RQ = not necessarily a good Conan game So by default: Company produces bad RPG = just as good a chance as Good RPG product company to produce a good Con...

Thanks Jay for the post - I was confident the future would be bright for the Conan RPG and your post confirms that future. For the record, Pinnacle hopes Matt and the gang are able to work something out. I know they put a ton of work into the line and should be proud of their incredible output. Shan...

And as Flatscan say, the actual Conan name is a huge part of the draw from a commercial point of view. True. The name Conan and also the world of Conan created by Howard together form the nucleus of a Conan game. Even with the big 2 pieces a great game is not a given - as flatscan mentioned. That i...

I think it is interesting you guys keep assuming that Paradox is a BIG MONEY entity. Sure they may have a few more pounds/ dollars/ euros more than you or I have but a strategy I would employ would be to have numerous unrelated individuals (and friends) set up corporations. Without coordination or ...

Moral disgust - which is what I think you meant since physical disgust would be rather strange - really demands no compromise, IMO. But everyone may not agree. I wonder if greed isn't behind the quest to get a piece of the Conan pie by those who want Howard's stories in PD. Other than fan fiction, c...

Actualy it is the silence I find ominous. Perhaps nobody knows and that does not seem to be good. Possibly, but I would expect it to take a little while for any decision to be made after the rug was pulled in such a dramatic manner; it's certainly not a decision you'd rush, and I imagine Mongoose h...

Well, whatever is 'right' or 'wrong' I dont think anyone was being 'naive'. Thing is, 'public domain' allows everyone to eventually have access to historical documents, the creativity of all humanity, as part of their collected heritage. That some exploit loopholes for personal benefit disgusts me....
