Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of – Sean’s Pick, 101917

It’s pretty clear when you’re putting together an all-star cast of creators, Monica Valentinelli should be on your Short List. Chris Birch of Modiphius obviously thought so when he was lining up talent for his run at the Conan mythos, and here’s the core launch featuring her excellent contributions. Monica Valentinelli Week continues!

WELCOME TO THE HYBORIAN AGE!

KNOW, O PRINCE, THAT BETWEEN THE YEARS WHEN THE OCEANS DRANK ATLANTIS AND THE GLEAMING CITIES, AND THE YEARS OF THE RISE OF THE SONS OF ARYAS, THERE WAS AN AGE UNDREAMED OF, WHEN SHINING KINGDOMS LAY SPREAD ACROSS THE WORLD LIKE BLUE MANTLES BENEATH THE STARS…

Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of takes you into the world of Conan the Barbarian, where heroes raise blood-spattered swords against dire sorcery, exotic lands beckon to the daring, danger and treasure lurks in forgotten ruins, and where loathsome creatures haunt the spaces beneath the earth… as well as in the throne-rooms of mighty kingdoms!

Seek your fortune in forbidden tombs or upon blood-soaked battlefields. Cast dark and terrible spells of unimaginable power, at the price of your soul. Sail upon untamed seas to lands where no human in living memory has walked. Fight for the fate of civilization — or barbarism — on a savage frontier!

  • Create your own legend in this decadent and violent world.
  • Complete 2d20 game system, including combat, skills, talents, sorcery, and equipment suitable for adventuring in the age before history.
  • An extensive gazetteer covering the whole of Conan’s world: featuring fair Aquilonia, gloomy Cimmeria, magic-haunted Stygia, all the way to the far-off steaming jungles of Khitai.
  • Extensive guidelines for running scenarios and campaigns in the Hyborian Age, allowing gamemasters to create suitably Howardian adventures.
  • Fearsome foes, ranging from bandits to sorcerers, apes to giant serpents, Children of Set to frost giants, forest devils, and characters of renown such as Conan or his most deadly foe, Thoth-Amon.
  • Art a team of iconic Conan artists, including Tim Truman, Simon Bisley, Esteban Sanjulian, Maroto, Mark Schultz, Tomás Giorello, and more.
  • Developed in close consultation with award-winning Conan scholars, this is the most authentic depiction of Conan and his world ever published for games.

    Oh boy Sean, you are a roll with your Picks of the Day. I KS this for my brother that loves Robert E Howards Conan. And this set of rules is fantastic and the book itself is beautiful. Modiphius makes some of the best rpgs games coming out and their books are gorgeous. My brother by the way started running a Conan game since the rules really appealed to him. Saud that the rules really worked well with his idea of with Howard’s Conan.

    Hey John Taber, my brother ran a game for a local convention during the Labor Day weekend. If you went to Big Bad Con maybe your a SF Bay Area person. I friend of mine is planning on running a game at DunDraCon in San Ramon over the President’s Day weekend(Valentines Day for non-gamers) Me and my brother both KickStarter the hardback and its a very big, beautiful book. You should be able to find it a little cheaper online. I know local stores are carrying them.
