The first prints of the 2nd Ed had serious binding problems (well, actually all Mongoose books printed around the same period had big problems). Mongoose has a very efficient exchange program, e-mail them directly and you'll get your perfecty bound Conan rulebook in no time!

Strangely, no one mentioned FFG yet... If the Conan license abandons the current OGL game, I abandon future purchases as well. Very bright answer...:roll: This kind of sentence just shows the huge difference between the Conan fan and the D20 fan. I spit on D20 and bought nonetheless the complete ran...

Sorry go into tangent territory, but there is no more animosity to D20 than there is to RQ. The anti-D20 crowd is just more vocal.
Only because some "well-thinking" people would them them to shut up.

I was gone for two days and got back to find shattering news! :shock: The three systems approach was a good thing for the license and I would have bought all them. I've been waiting for the MRQ version for years and, though I was unaware of its development, the Savaged version would have made a perf...

We don't focus much on gear in our campaigns. More than often, the party members will lose their stuff and equip themselves with whatever they can find. That's the Conan way... Most of them will disdain armour, preferring to focus on mobility. Money isn't really a problem to get an armour, at the lo...

FOr me, Ruins is awesome, Catacombs is pretty good. But that is in large part based on the way I GM. Citys is on the list because I love city books with maps. Cities of Hyboria doesn't propose any maps. It's not like it's really a surprise, isn't it? Anyway I like Cities better than Catacombs , whi...

the question is, how many of those do you still buy from? I am not ready to bail on the Goose just yet, but I certainly put my plan to get most of the books on hold until I find out what the big deal is.

Yes, after the first each gets a cumulative +1, so by the fourth or fith thats a pretty hefty add. But, if they cant get through the armor it doesnt matter how many hit. That's exactly the point. Armour is way overpowered against low levels mobs and somewhat useless against high level/high strength...

I loved the old Conan game, too. I liked the thing that your characteristics depended on your skills and not the contrary as it is in most games. The more you were trained in climbing, swimming and so on, the more your Physical Prowess would improve. It seemed far more logic to me than the "high sta...

From Korppis examplle, it looks like they just begun Betrayer of Asgard ! 8) When I ran this adventure, most of my players were lightly armoured at best, save the Aquilonian Soldier, played by one of those guys who give D20 a bad name, exploiting the rules to the limit. He tried to convince me than ...

I personally tend to think that Damage Reduction is one of the main problem here. The D20 system wasn't really designed for damage reducing armours (as are most level based systems, thinking of it...). Your average 14 Str/2nd Soldier mook has absolutely no chance of hurting a high level tank. Even i...
