Sep 2 2017

Coming soon from Modiphius–a GM Screen and Toolkit that will help you answer the riddle of steel.

Know o prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue stars. And onto this, Conan, destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. Now the role of chronicler falls to you–what stories will you tell of the days of high adventure?

Modiphius’ Conan RPG takes you to savage adventures in an age undreamed of. Take your stories–whether of adventurers or kings, of thieves or sorcerors–to the heights of jeweld Aquilonia, or the shadowy towers of Stygia and beyond. The GM’s Toolkit contain what you need to get your adventures off the ground and full of the same action and drama that you’d expect out of a great Conan story.

Nothing like a good campfire scene.

Now while their artwork isn’t necessarily our first choice (see above) for the back of the screen, it is absolutely gorgeous. And of course, you can grab it all for pre-order right now from Modiphius.
