It's an OGL book, and does not need any other books for playability.
Except the second printing. :twisted:
It's not that bad. Hell if it was WOTC, they'd wait two years, reissue it as Conan 1.5, and charge you 75$ for it.
There's a few typos. I've seen far worse. The company is also doing a damn good job of placating the people that are taking exception to the typos.
They capture the flavor of the books. Conan is a violent, bloody, heroic, grim setting, and the book captures that perfectly. Yes, it is $50, but you DO NOT need any other books to play, like PHB's, DMG's, etc.
If you want to see really bad typos read gamma world.
If you want to read a damn good conversion of an excellent series of books, with a decent set of rules then buy Conan.
