Robert E Howard's Conan Roleplaying Game: Adventures In An Age Undreamed Of


Hi everyone, firstly thanks for being part of this epic journey we're about to start. I don't think anyone has brought together such a legendary line up artists like this before. Jeff Shanks has done an incredible job of not only keeping Robert E Howard's Conan roleplaying game true to the mark, but he's helped us snare some of the biggest names in the industry who can see that we're going to make this one hell of a testament to REH. The crazy thing is we still have more big name artists to unveil!

This is the first of what will be a more regular series of updates now things are hotting up so I thought you'd like to see a sneak preview of something Tomas Giorello is working on:

I also wanted to to take this opportunity to give you the official launch date for the Conan roleplaying game Kickstarter: 

Tuesday 16th February 

Sorry it's not this week as planned. We've spent a year developing this game, but I took the decision to push the launch back for a number of reasons. Some of the big name artists needed more time to deliver their cover art to coincide with the Kickstarter, the video needed more time to get right, and the delay would also mean we could get the free Quickstart download ready for the launch of the Kickstarter to give you a proper flavour for the game. This includes six pre-generated characters, a scenario "To Race The Thunder" and a summary of the rules. 

We're not in a rush to release this game, it was always going to take as long as it took to do the project justice. So as we begin the final preparations please share this page with friends:  www.modiphius.com/conan and encourage them to sign up. We'll be sharing more previews between now and then. 

In the next update I will be detailing some of the books you can expect in the Kickstarter line-up, but in the meantime I'll leave you with Brom's awesome cover again...
