Thanks for the tip, I'll look into it.

It would be hard to see something that is even more inspired by Howard. 8)

This is just the D20 rules and it's full load of spells.
An American-style kitchen is a kitchen in the living room.
A French-style toilet has toilet in the living room.
My neighbours combine both styles.

I'm afraid I don't understand this statement, or rather what it is supposed to mean in the given context... ?

In D&D4 you can now cast spell after spell. So I am talking there of high fantasy setting.
Anyway D&D3 offered also priests and wizards a lot more spells that is usually found in Howard's stories.

Yep. Add the loads of magical items carried by the average adventuring party, the supernatural monsters roaming everywhere, ... Magic stuff is everywhere in D&D.

Thanks a lot, Thulsa!:D
I can't wait to send my players to these "Sunken Temples" and "Serpent-Haunted Vaults"!. It looks even more appealing than AK:M was.

As for the D20 issue, I'll guess the book will need some rewriting to fit in the Hyborian World. Converting AK:M was no big deal, especially with the guidelines on hyboria.xoth. I don't think this book will cause more problems.
I talk to planets, baby.

I used the Conan rules when running these adventures myself, so basically the book is already dual-statted for both systems. :-)
