You got his apearance detailed to a great extent, but what about his personality, motivations and background? That's what really makes a character, and the way you play it. I am unfamiliar with the nature of the cult of Skelos, except that he was a powerful sorcerer from the past, and in time he bec...

Yeah, I loved the first cover also, the mighty thewed bronze giant looks dangerous... in this one he is more like posing, but don't get me wrong, this one is great too, evokes more of the hyborian world.

Uncanny dodge while running?

While running, if you have uncanny dodge but not the run feat, can you still dodge?

Depending on the setting, a bane weapon could prove quite useful if there is a demon that can't be hurt any other way, like Kosatral Kel in that REH story, I don't remember the name. The weapon is only effective against a single creature (Kosatral Kel), or creature type (some demon type), and should...

For the moment this is my wishlist: Hyborian Grimoire: 1. More spells and more sorcery styles. 2. Instead of a sorcery style every four levels, just give sorcerers a spell, and let them decide if they want a new style or an advanced spell. Having more styles allows for versatility at lower "spell le...

Just a coment on weapon focus and specialisation that are weapon specific. Since the advent of Analyst and Combat master from Hs Finest, which grant far better bonuses to attack if you have good stats, I consider the aforementioned feats a waste, but depending on the character concept some feats are...

I don't have the books handy, so I'll quote from memory. In Hs Fiercest, there is a combat maneuver called Quick draw two weapon bluff. What it allows you to do is, if wielding a weapon in your primary hand, and nothing in the other, if you pull a successful feint, you can quick draw a weapon with ...

Apparently, it was edited out. Here is the missing text as I wrote it. Too bad they missed it. I looked at the new skills and feats of Argos and Zingara, the Knowledge (zingaran fencing) is pretty interesting along with the new balance rules. The related feats are awsome as well, a whole new set of...

i think being a pirate of some level should also come into play in the prereqs, being a land based zingaran alone couldn't help improving the feat.

I differentiate because I feel the two need to be separate so that REF saves are exclusive from Combat rediness. I think that's precisely why it's made clearer in the Atlantean edition that the two should be very separate. You have a feat for boosting REF save (Lightning Reflexes) and one for boost...

I actually play it as Init = Ref save. It's easiest, and it also makes Lightning Reflexes (almost) worth having. As mentioned in the thread I linked to above, it is also the way the stats are done in the supplements (at least most of them, I think). Yeah I have seen the lightning reflexes added to ...

You could probably kill 1000+ people with necromancy, I think the name of the spell is Black plague. I think the deaths caused by summoned creatures will count for the rule of success, as they are sort of your weapon.

also by the COnan hide skill use thier is no -10 for the opponent being distracted. This is due to the feat that makes sniping a -10 instead of the -20. I forgot the name of the feat though. And really losing the ability to dodge is a rather rare thing in Conan. The feat is Out of thin air, from Ac...

Re: Coup de grace

The only case with some frequency might be for sneaking up on sleeping enemies, so the Pirate ability and the Shemite damage bonus seem pretty much not exciting. And that is the only case I think we have ever used it in our game. My thief sneaked into a tent full of sleeping enemies, and he almost ...
