Mongoose Old Bear said:Quite right that as Hyboria is developing Aquilonia is becoming more akin to Rome than say medieval France. However the feel of Aquilonia is more Late Roman rather than high Imperial, so about 350 AD. Argos has more than a hint of Renaissance Italy and Venice in particular about it, I think. As a side note I perceive Nemedia to be edging towards Gothic/Germanic in feel. Names are quite Romanic but the feel with nemedia for me has always been that they are a little more authoritarian than their Aquilonian rivals and neighbours.
Damien said:No Hyborian kingdom would be alike to ancient Greece or ancient Rome, since Hyboria is a medieval world in government and military styles.
Technically nothing! People of the Balack Circle sends Conan to ancinet India, Frost Giant's Daughter drops him in the middle of Norse mythology, Black Collosus has him defending a crusader kingdom from chariot-driving Egyptians and Zulu spearmen and Beyond the Black River has him fighting injuns in upstate New York (or maybe its the Ohio river valley).Damien said:But -technically- Hyboria is a medieval-style world.
