I've never had a player who couldn't (or wouldn't) do that. I've been playing RPGs since 1981. Gamers are a pretty intelligent lot, at least the ones I know. We are indeed and he is as well which is why it's super-frustrating for the guys in my group that we can't break him of this habit. :evil: Un...

If they fail the Spot check, the characters have no idea what is about to happen. It doesn't matter if the Players are aware they are about to get it. And that works fine unless you have a player in your group who can't or won't keep character knowledge separate from player knowledge. :evil: Or mak...

Well, one of the downsides to multiclassing is that a character that does so will miss out on the higher level class abilities that a single-class character has access to. Maybe not too much of a loss in the eyes of some but still.... I guess it all depends on how you wanna build your character, whi...

No, I'm not. Though, having said that, I'll probably buy it when it comes out on video. I'm not much of a TV watcher (can't stand the commercials). From what little I have seen of it, it does look pretty well done. There's a number of actors in it that I enjoy seeing. 'Course, never having read the ...

It was sort of a What Would Conan Do kind of post. Apropos of nothing at all in this thread, I just had to say that I would love to have a shirt with "What would Conan do?" (accompanied by a suitable image, of course, so as to avoid the misperception of it being a reference to Conan O'Brien or anyo...

But, still, wouldn't the slave hunting be easier accross different borders? Well, their options are kinda limited, yes? I mean, Vanaheim only borders on Asgard, Pictland and Cimmeria (oooh, wonderful choices there for potential slaves :lol: ); Asgard on Vanaheim and Hyperborea (same); Hyperborea on...

There is some stuff on Tortage in Cities of Hyboria, but I doubt it goes into the detail of this article. There's also a map and fairly lengthy write-up on Tortage in Argos and Zingara. Whether this is the same information from the article, I don't know (but it could be). The S&P "Tortage" article ...

If anyone needs some earlier no-longer published stuff :?: How much earlier are we talkin' here? The only stuff I'm missing is the pre-PDF, non- Conan Compendium material.

First off, let me add my thanks to Vincent for all these wonderful NPCs. This really is a treasure-trove of material for any Conan GM. :D However, I just took a look at the Famous Fallen document and it appears that Livia, Salome and Tascela all have Conan's stat block listed instead of their own. :...

Yeah, they're out there all right. I just picked one up last month too. Brand new, still sealed, fifteen bucks.

As a matter of fact, I have two...one was only $5 but came sans map. :(

I agree that it's a pretty fine GM's screen and the map, for all its inaccuracies, is still very well done.

The maps are good Maps? What maps? :shock: I'm pretty sure I didn't get any maps in the .zip file. Are they the same ones found on Thulsa's site under Regional and Site Maps ( http://hyboria.xoth.net/maps/index.htm )? I'd very much appreciate a little clarification. Thanks.

Vincent, I fired off an email to you a short while ago. I'd be very happy to accept any material on Hyrkania and Turan you graciously wanna throw my way. :D Thank you very much for the kind offer.

Um...that is, assuming it was meant for any and all takers.... :oops:
