Massive Book Deal for Conan Fans

If you're a Conan fan and would like literally thousands of pages of content it's worth checking out the Conan Kickstarter that finishes today (don't worry if you miss it you can still join in here)

They have funded over 14 beautiful hardcover full colour US Letter size books that will be stuffed full of fantastic Conan art by many of the great names listed in the last post, each with a major cover piece, and you can expect truly authentic content overseen by their Conan scholars.

Even better, if you remember the Conan d20 line that was out a few years ago - you now get all of these books too! You just have to pledge at the PDF Master level or higher and you're basically getting two whole roleplaying games for one price. Literally thousands of pages.

The Kickstarter also unlocked another fantastic deal, if you pledge at the £300 level to get all the books (or £600 with all the accessories thrown in), you now get ALL THE BOOKS FOR 2 YEARS IN PRINT - and with the extensive line up planned here this is a Conan collector's dream come true. All told it's worth £700 (saving you £400) without even considering the d20 PDF bundle.

Here's the Kickstarter link, hope you manage to grab one of these incredible Conan bundles!

Have a look at the popular pledges and what they get!

Over on Kickstarter one of the greatest ever line-ups of Conan artists has come together under the banner of Robert E. Howard's Conan Roleplaying Game: Adventures In An Age Undreamed Of

Each book in the roleplaying game line promises to be a beautiful high quality full colour hard cover book featuring a major commissioned cover art by one of the legendary names assembled along with truly authentic and evocative content by industry veterans and newcomers...

As you can see some of the big legends have come together like Brom, Joe Jusko, Ken Kelly, Cary Nord, Mark Schultz, Tim Truman, Esteban Maroto, Tomas Giorello, Val Mayerik, Tom Grindberg - the list goes on. There is also a stunning Adventures In An Age Undreamed Of Art Book for £40 which brings together all these works if you don't fancy learning the game. 

What you will likely appreciate is that the roleplaying game is being produced under the watchful eye of world-renowned Conan experts and scholars working together to bring you the most authentic Conan roleplaying experience yet, focusing exclusively on Robert E. Howard’s original stories. 
This includes: 
Jeffrey Shanks, award-winning Robert E. Howard scholar and essayist (The Unique Legacy of Weird Tales, Conan Meets the Academy, REH: Two-Gun Raconteur, Critical Insights: Pulp Fiction, The Dark Man: The Journal of REH Studies, Zombies from the Pulps!). 
Patrice Louinet, well known for his expertise and seal of approval for the Conan board game by Monolith, will be working alongside Jeffrey Shanks to ensure the Conan roleplaying game is of the highest standard. Patrice was Editor of the definitive, three-volume Conan series (from Del Rey Books (US), Wandering Star (UK) and Bragelonne (France). Awarded Lifetime Achievement award from the Howard Foundation (USA, 2014) and the Special Award from the Imaginales (France, 2012).

In fact you can watch some of these legends playing the Conan Roleplaying right in Howard's living room during Howard Day's last year - have a look at this link
You can find the Kickstarter here - - the publishers, British based games company Modiphius, have already unlocked several books and accessories like the beautiful leather bound 'Conqueror's Edition' or the Stygian Doom Pit, as well as lovely custom dice, a deluxe satin map of the Hyborian Age and much more.
