I am new to the Conan genre. I largely bought the book because I am big fan of the Mongoose OGL line. I like the rules a great deal but was curious to know if there was more to the genre than just horned helmets and fur clad barbarians? For example the back of the book mentions knights and chivalry, which is somewhat confusing to me seeing that most illustrations I have seen look more in line with the Ancient World than they do Medieval Europe. Are there nations in the Hyborian world that support a more advanced tech level than that shown by the Conan movies? I imagine this is the sort of thing that would be addressed by the “Road of Kings” but seeing as that is still a while away yet I figured I would pose the question here.
