I am working on this idea, will take a while but will try and get the 1st mini pack out not long after the rules.
With that in mind….
Where do you all see your games taking place, in towns, or out in the open steppe?
No point making cave entrances and ruins if all your games are in cities..11/07/2018 at 21:26 #94953
Mine would take place wherever there is adventure. Temple break-ins, crypt looting, caravan raids, street brawls, sewer sneaking, exotic animal hunting, assassinations in mansions/palaces, dungeon delving and lost city exploration. Sooo many locations to play in…
Y may as well do it all. I know this needs to be a viable business, but you also need to do what YOU think should go into YOUR world.

I’d back DSG on that, adventures will happen everywhere there is foes to smite and/or treasure/wenches to be liberated. Most things will be of interest, but nice temple/palace pieces are always welcome. A lot of conan stories take place in such places after all. 🙂12/07/2018 at 15:46 #94992
We are soooo not helpful!

I don’t agree, we are giving mike the opportunity to wow us with pretty much anything and in turn we get a piece or 2 to base a few games around 🙂12/07/2018 at 19:08 #9500813/07/2018 at 08:15 #95038

I think you’ve got your village’s and steppe lines up to a point where people can pretty much build what they need/want for most games.
What I’d really like to see are things like altars, statues/idols of strange gods, treasures to steal ( pedestal with Eye of Seth/Jewel of Kwahlur…), maybe a throne, some kind of sarcophagy/ornate tomb, a bottomless arcane well that leads to an other dimension.
As for minis, an undead priest-king mummy, some type of living statue guardian, an eldritich horror tentacled formless mass that is all eyes and mouths filled with sharp fangs…
Also the generic things like giant spiders, scorpions, snakes, big cats, apes… … I know all of these can be had elsewhere but this way you have the option for those folks that like to one stop shop. Also it might make for more consistency in the sculpting style of the figures which is always nice.

I am thinking of Hyena’s as some local beasts.
Just reading the first Gor book, apart from the obvious theme, it seems that the main character gets through scrapes due to the most unlikely good fortune…14/07/2018 at 13:34 #95107

Some hyenas, a winged ape demon and a beautifull pale skinned pirate queen.
Add some ruined temple/city pieces….
Now there’s an adventure pack I’d buy in an instant

Now this is a neat idea, that is a great story to adapt into a game!31/07/2018 at 00:30 #95965
There is no Hyboria, folks. There is a Hyborian Age and a Thurian Continent. Yes, Cabinet trademarked Hyboria, but it’s not in REH.
And that’s fine if you’re interested in the later pastiche. I personally like the Marvel run a lot, but I don’t think they used Hyboria.20/08/2018 at 18:25 #97324
I am going to watch my Sharpe episodes and see if any of the cheesy stories offer scenario ideas.
I will report back!20/08/2018 at 20:49 #97327
Would recommend ‘Sharpe’s Gold’ – I think the episode with the weird Aztec death cult, El Casco, damsels in distress, lost explorer, caves, oh, and did I mention the death cult?

So after a few PM’s the above Steelonsand packaged up and let me have, for no money at all his Conan comics.
Now this was an amazing offer in any case, but when I saw how many comics he had parted with I was quite humbled.
Here they are.
As I make my way through them I suspect I will post some images of some things that I think would be cool to make/game.
Thanks again sir, you are a properly lovely fella.05/01/2019 at 14:07 #106967
What about Sinbad comics and or graphic novels?
They seem on the surface to be high adventure in the right sort of setting?13/03/2019 at 17:14 #110776
I’m new here and I was browsing the forum. Since I love Conan, this looks like a great place to start posting.
My father used to read me the old Marvel comics when I was a child, so my vision of Conan’s universe is heavily influenced by them. Then came the movies and finally the original novels.
Nowadays I pretty much enjoy the Monolith game, and in you are into Conan, you’ll probably find interesting these miniatures:
Here you are the link to the manufacturer:14/03/2019 at 14:21 #110827
Those are some excellent minis, and crazy good likenesses!

Looking for more online fantasy inspiration of a desert theme, anyone know of anything?
Fan sites, certain artists…
I often trawl the net for inspiration but seem to come across the same stuff time after time..05/04/2019 at 08:00 #112044
Not online, unless on YouTube, but what about the cheesy Biblical films that inspire my efforts? Similar landscape, similar larger-than-life characters, but God rather than sorcery.
One who puts on his armour should not boast like one who takes it off.
Ahab, King of Israel; 1 Kings 20:1105/04/2019 at 10:25 #112051
I´m surprised nobody mentioned this cheesy gem yet:
While it´s surely not on par with both Conan movies it´s surely not the worst movie ever. And it has some interesting scenes (the Jun raid on the village for example).
And speaking of books, from the non REH books, Karl Edward Wagner´s Road of Kings is one of the better ones:
(Sorry, but I´m biased here. I love Wagner´s Kane stories)
And the books written by John Maddox Roberts are quite good too.
I think that the real world Bronze Age civilizations are maybe the greatest inspiration:
Not desert but steppes and a very interesting site:

This get´s really funny if you turn the original sound off and lay the OST over it…. 😉 😀
