Conan


Midweek Snippets

The week continues along. We're halfway to the end. Just gotta put our heads down and power through. Not that the week's been terrible, mind you. Just busy. Lots of things on my metaphorical plate before I get lots of things on my actual plate next week. But before we can get there, let's snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Star Trek Dice Available From Modiphius, New Female Military Figure Available From Brother Vini, X-Case Clear Expandable Miniatures Display and Transport Up On Kickstarter, Conan: Gamemaster Screen + Gamesmaster Toolkit Available From Modiphius, and Arcane Scrollworks: First Level Spell Scrolls up On Kickstarter.

Conan: The Book of Skelos Available From Modiphius

The world of Conan isn't one filled with a lot of magic, but it certainly does exist. Sorcerers and wizards tap into spiritual energies of the gods and do wondrous things. In The Book of Skelos, players will be able to bring such magic and mysticism to their games of the Conan RPG. The new sourcebook is available now as a .pdf from Modiphius.

Asmodee Announces Nordheim Expansion For Conan Board Game

Sure, for us here in the Northern Hemisphere, things are heating up (or "hotting" up, for you in Britain). But down South, it's getting cold. And to go along with that, Asmodee has announced Nordheim, their new Scenario Expansion pack for the Conan Board Game. Yes, I know it specifically says it's taking place in the very far North. But that's not getting cold right now, is it? :P

Kushite Witch Hunters Available For The Conan Board Game

In any 1-vs-many board game, the single player needs to have a lot of options to feel that they have a chance at defeating the others. The more varied tactics they can use, the more likely they'll come up with something that the heroes (as they generally are) can't handle. As such, those that play as the Overlord in the Conan board game have a new set of villains they can employ: the Kushite Witch Hunters.

Two New Expansions Now Available For Conan Board Game

Robert E. Howard's Conan series of books had a very wide cast of characters. The titular barbarian king traveled far and wide across Hyboria and met with many strange creatures. Howard was also friends with H.P. Lovecraft, and you can see where that friendship influenced certain things, such as Yogah of Yag. Now, you can add Yogah, as well as some new crossbowmen, to your games of Conan.

Asmodee Previews Kushite Witch Hunters Expansion for Conan

You're going to be getting a whole bunch of stuff in the base game box for the Conan board game coming from Monolith and Asmodee. Plenty there for hours of gaming.
But if you're anything like me, you know that after a while, you're gonna want to expand out from it. Thankfully, there will be numerous extra sets you can use to add to the game. One such is the Kushite Witch Hunters set, of which we get a look at here.
Also dice. Because... dice.

Asmodee Previews First Two Expansion Packs for Conan Board Game

Robert E. Howard, writer of the Conan series of stories, was friends with H. P. Lovecraft, writer of the Cthulhu series of stories. The two wrote letters often. So, do you think that some of Lovecraft's style would find its way into a Conan book? I think you'd have to look no further than Yogah of Yag and see that it did. Originally seen in Tower of the Elephant, you'll soon be able to bring Yogah to your own tabletops in the Conan board game. Also, crossbowmen.

Gen Con Day 3 Photos

I swear this show is just screaming by this year. It's already the end of Day 3. Today will be the last day for Gen Con 2016. As usual for Gen Con Saturday, it was a whirlwind of activity. There was roaming the hall, taking photos most of the morning and early afternoon. Then there was the media event in the CMON booth. Expect a few more posts about games from that in the morning. My brain's just too fried to do much more than get you a recap of the photos I posted earlier today.

Modiphius Announces Conan Exiles Crossover Sourcebook

As I mentioned previously, when different games all take inspiration from and use the same source material, it's potentially very easy for them to have crossover material. It doesn't always come to pass, though. Modiphius, on the other hand, is making sure to create as much crossover as possible with their Conan RPG. They've announced yet another partnership. This time with the upcoming Conan Exiles video game.

Monolith Games Opens Pledge Manager for Conan

Kickstarters sometimes end up at rather inopportune times for people. Maybe you just backed another project you're really excited about, or maybe it falls in-between pay periods, or maybe you had some car repairs or something. Whatever the reason, perhaps you weren't able to get in on the campaign while it was running. Thankfully, there's when the Pledge Manager opens up and you have another chance to get in on things. Monolith Games has just opened up their pledge manager.
