Catacombs of Hyboria

Author: Bryan Steele
Series: Conan

Price: $24.95
Format: Softback (104 pages)
Shipping date: May 2009
Ref: ISBN 978-1-906508-36-4 | MGP7817




The perfect companion to both Ruins of Hyboria and Cities of Hyboria, this book provides several fully detailed underground-based encounters that can be played throughout the Hyborian Kingdoms. Each is laid out to be run after just a glance of a few moments, ensuring a Games Master is never caught off balance whenever his players choose to go somewhere unexpected – keep this book near your gaming table, and your players will marvel at detail you have worked into your campaign!
Wonder if Mongoose is really going to use the old Conan 2e cover for this supp. or if this is just a stock photo? Be nice to finally see it in print. I never did put together the underground adventure - dungeon crawl type - that I was going to with the Conan RPG. This will come in handy for accomplishing that goal.

Very good cover! But not the right cover for this book, I guess.
I think this is one of the best Conan covers I ever seen.
Conan here looks so much better than the Conan in the Warrior Companion cover!
I hoped this one was the cover for Conan 2e..and as far as I remember Nabonidus'palace was not an underground dungeon..so I really do not know what Thak is doing here!

I agree it would have made the best cover of all for the 2nd Ed rulebook...

I've seen this cover for thee books now so I see it as a placeholder cover till the official cover is shown. I hope we do get a book with it though as it is a sweet cover, reminds me some of the older Conan Book Covers.

Certainly this cover has popped up all over the place, each time with a different title. It's easily better than the recent covers of "Adventures", "Betrayer of Asgard", "Khitai" and "Warriors Companion", which is a disappointing trend. But as the scene is so obviously from "Rogues in the House" it is largely irrelevant to any of those titles. The cover of "Bestiary" was less than canon, Wacking Thak would have replaced it nicely.

Looking forward to the book. Cities and Ruins are very good, so I have high expectations for this one!

Well, it seems you don't own many 2nd edition books, then, as it has been the regular presentation of stat blocks of all 2nd ed. material...

the stats are placed in broad categories, making them far more readable and easy to use than the sinisters old lists of numbers of the standard D20 products...

You're correct. I have no 2nd ed. books to speak of. I got out of Conan after they ended the Atlantean ed. :cry:

Any idea when this is supposed to come out? Says may, you can preorder but it's not on this months releases, it's not on upcoming releases and it's not in conan section! I only got access to it by search function.

Hello? Mongoose? Forgotten to switch this thing to "available" mode?-)
