"Sorcery and the role of magic in the Conan world is radically different than D&D. IMHO, there's no effort for real game balance for Sorcery- it can be awful useless or damn too powerful, but this reflect REH's original stories. In his stories Sorcery was untrustworthy and cold steel more honourable and sane..."
I don't know if that's true, but maybe it's what I was hoping to hear. I'm too worried about magic and I need to take it lightly or maybe reserve sorcery for a future adventure, when I have more idea of the game I'm playing.
