Anyone got Argos & Zingara?

If so, tell us how it's like. Are the 96 pages enough? If possible, put the index here please.

Oh how I wish.

But my next purchases are Scrolls of Skelos and Faiths and Fevors.

Perhaps if they move closer to that region (Or if I get everything else first)

Definitely get Scrolls, but I'd say hold of on F&F unless you really want to emphasize religion in you campaign. It's dense, and more info than the casual religious gamer might want to utilize.

If you're getting started, you can either PM me, or do a search for "started" or "newbie" or something like taht. There's several threads with suggestions on what books are essential versus being essentially "extra" or embellishing.

Thanks for the offer. ^_^

I've actually been getting books on and off for a short while.

Thusfar my collection consists of:

Main Rulebook (Atlantean edition)
Shadizar Boxset (Map problem one)
Hyboria's Finest/Fiercest/Fallen
Road of Kings
Across the Thunder River
Ruins of Hyborea

I do want Scrolls of Skelos next and, if Faiths is for those who want a but more religeosity in the game, I'll hold off on that.

There arestill plenty of books I would love to get my hands on, like many of the region books. But I'll wait to see where the players decide to go first.

Nice! Thanks Eric!

I suppose if my players Opt to go that way, I should probably consider that book, plus Mesantia and The Pirate Isles.

This book is awesome. It gives great detail on the nations, societies and peoples that make them up.

I am very impressed. My favorite section is on each nations military and their makeup.

Great! Nice to know it's a fine book!

BTW Eric, does the book have anything on the Bacharan Islands and Tortage?

The draft I sent originally did, but it may have been edited out because Tortage was used in Signs and Portents - which would make that section a reprint. So I would not be surprised if that part was taken out.

I am wondering if the book used the city maps I submitted.

Does anyone know what issue it was in, or if it will be included in "The Conan Compendium" book? Tortage is a setting I've wanted details on for a long time now. I had no idea it had already been covered.

Tortage, including a map, was covered in issue 24 (July 2005). It was a five page article (written by me) in the penultimate issue of the printed magazine (before it went to PDF format).

So, it has been available for over a year now.

To the best of my knowledge, it does not appear in the Compendium.

There is a map of Tortage in A&Z.

So far the only problem I have this book is its length. I wanted more :)

More worthwhile information in the sourcebooks is always better. :)

BTW, can you say if there's more information about Tortage in the book besides the map?

That's why I always search the pdf for 'MGP' it highlights how many products there are from Mongoose
