Any other adventures that anyone can think of that could easily convert to Conan?
How about that old D&D adventure, Dwellers of the Forbidden City? I think the Yuan-Ti are a nice touch, very Set-like.
In a pre 3rd edition Hyborea campaign about 8 years ago me and one of the other DM's in the group tag teamed as DM/Player. He ran Dwellers of the Forbidden City and it was great!
Granted this was 8 years, or maybe more ago, and it was a more fantasy based when compared to the Mongoose rules. We are doing things much differently now.
Still with minor alterations and getting rid of some of the other "Creature" encounters it can work great.
Other old DnD modules I have customized and have DMed in both pre mongoose rules and with mongoose rules or are soon DMing are:
The Lost City
Isle of Dread ( Finished running 3 weeks ago)
The Veiled Society
Destiny of Kings
Curse of Xanathon
Against the cult of the Reptile God
Eye of the Serpent
Master of the Desert Nomads/ Temple of Death
There are others I am sure
Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh
The wizard of course becomes a scholar, the smugglers using the alchemists home as a base I converted to slavers, and there was no lizard man plot or continuation to the next two adventures in the series. The party was hired by a scholar to look for the secret of the philosphers stone it is rumored the dead wizard/alchemist had discovered.
A great adventure for first level characters and can be put anywhere along the coast from Stygian to Zingara.
The ones listed above I've actually worked on or ran. My Hyborean campaigns tend to have strong political and exotic and weird or lost locales like most DM's and the above adventures are all great classics easily converted.
Just change the names of the countries, gods, and replace huminoids with humans and make their equipment appropriate.
Scale back the monster encounters and the one or two you might use turn into something more raw and truly terrible and certainly not common.
The "monster villians" could be made into demons worshipped as gods waiting to be brought into the world through influence or sacrifice. The Naga in Against the Cult of the Reptile God could be replaced with say a female sorcerer who has the same motives and powers as the Naga and is trying to summon the Naga (Reptile God) into the world. The players try to stop her and maybe succeed so no Naga encounter only the threat of one. Maybe they fail and have to fight the Naga customized as you see fit. Or maybe the Naga is in it and there is no sorcerer puppet.
After turning all spell casters into sorcerous scholars you got something worthy of the name Hyborean Adventure!
I find this saves me a lot of time for prep and since the group I play with are in their mid 30's everyone in the group enjoys the classics every few years.
So I say do the forbidden City. You can always alter the Yaun ti in some way that suits you. Like maybe the Yaun Ti (Serpent men Set Worshippers :wink: ) don't polymorph their opponents into bunny rabbits.
Maybe there are only abominations or maybe there are all three types of YT. The bullywugs could be a tribe of human primitives that dress in reptile skins and teeth which in certain conditions may fool the party, Ala The 13th Warrior.
Its endless man, endless...
