The premise sounds interesting at first, but as I recall that module had the PCs fighting robots and finding stuff like power armor that they could use. How much genre-crossing would your players settle for in Conan?

I've found this area to be lacking as well. Maybe port over rules from another 3.0 game or brew your own 8)

Got to say I would agree with Herve 100% with regards to the Lurking Terror

As a player just did not enjoy it.

Sure, though it is only available in relatively civilized and advanced regions such as Aquilonia (in my game). I'm sure the game world would allow for more types of shields than just the basic ones in the book. Can't offer up any stats but i'd be interested to see what others submit for the shield t...

Was the Aqulionian style ever detailed in the Aquilonia sourcebook or new in the Players Guide?

Re: Skelos

Hey Mad Dog - how ya been? One big Skelos secret revealed in the book is that he once created a sentient +5 magic sword named Stormbringer. You know the rest of the story. :lol: :D haha if only!! I guess it would be a good thing to stay on Skelos' good side. If he has one. Mad Dog wouldn't if he ha...

I give it a thumbs-up. Certainly not as polished as Assassin's, and yes somewhat straightforward, but they did a good job capturing the flavor, and the violence of Conan. I dig the different ways each boss dies (all brutal). My favorite was the giant squid who Conan finishes by charging into its maw...

Bestiary Clarification: Vampires

In reading the 2e description it doesn't say anything about any particular weaknesses, especially sunlight. Is it reasonable to assume that vampires in Conan have not weakness associated with sunlight at all? I will probably add something to that effect in my game, if only because vampires in genera...

So how does 2E change this?

Sorry to dredge up an ancient thread - but the topic may once again be pertinent in the context of 2E. Near as I can tell, 2E does not have the limitation of one Combat Manoeuvre per round. On pg 204, they are now called Special Attacks and Manoeuvres and there is no mention of how many a character ...
