I'ld just like to add that I'ld love to see Hybora officially tweaked for use with either Savage Worlds or FUDGE; they both are loose systems and suit pulp action sword'n'sorcery very well. You never know, Mongoose may be interested in branching out; they've got all the great backround resources alr...

Yep, True20 is another good system, much better than D&D, simplified and logical - its quite easy to convert Mongoose Conan to True20 Conan, although its so similar that there wouldn't be much point really. I don't own any D&D anymore, my True20 is the closest I have along with Mongoose Conan; both ...

An update on my above reply:

Dodge is actually covered in SW as an Edge. The Dodge Edge makes you harder to be hit by ranged combat. For melee combat there is a Block Edge which is a bonus to your Parry; this may be what you're looking for...

FUDGE would be a great fit for a Hyborian campaign, probably moreso than the D20 system. But Savage Worlds would do it even better, its got the simplicity of FUDGE, with fast crunchy combat, and its easy for players to learn. Kudos for FUDGE, but you can't go wrong with a Savage Worlds Conan

I probably shouldn't go into it to much in this forum, considering Mongoose isn't doing a SW game But to answer your question - there's no need to do a Dodge trait in SW, its covered by the Parry trait. Parry would have been better titled 'Defence', covering both Dodge and Parry. But there's no need...

Yes, I have come across this a year or so ago now - it is actually more complete than the copy I saved in my files. Its very well done, anf has quite a bit of flavour for fan material. I especially enjoyed the arcane items Pity that the author didn't write up magic spells (variants from the core rul...

Savage Worlds is a briliant set of rules for Hyboria. Its the only system I like better than BRP. I have even converted my old RQ Gloranthan Third Age settings to SW, and its great. That's saying alot, as I always felt Glorantha and the BRP system should always had remained hand in hand prior to fin...

Yep, forgot Lhankmar, Hyboria is the prize...

Hyboria is a great setting, and should be MRQ as well as D20. All subsequent Hyborian supplements should be primarily narrative, and if stats are required then it should be for both D20 and RQ rules
