A new sourcebook for Modiphius’ Conan RPG pulls in the exploration and survival of Conan: Exiles, the videogame. Pants not provided.
If you’re a fan of the nudity and Conan simulator known as Conan: Exiles, then you will want to craft some pants and head down to Modiphius’ web store where you can get your hands on a brand new pdf of the Exiles sourcebook for the Conan RPG. Now, this is an interesting one, because it’s not every day that you see a tabletop game take a videogame loop that’s very clearly inspired by hexcrawl exploration and survival and then jam it into something that’s way more narrative-focused, like the 2d20 system.
But… Conan seems like the perfect place to try this. And the book promises fights against epic foes like Tyros the Deathbringer or the Witch Queen of Lemuria. So if you’re into the Conan RPG, this one feels like it’s worth a shot.
HE STRODE OUT ACROSS THE SANDY WASTE AS IF HE HAD JUST BEGUN THE JOURNEY. A BARBARIAN OF BARBARIANS, THE VITALITY AND ENDURANCE OF THE WILD WERE HIS, GRANTING HIM SURVIVAL WHERE CIVILIZED MEN WOULD HAVE PERISHED.
Combining the gritty suspense of the online gaming with the fast action of the tabletop roleplaying game, Conan: The Exiles Sourcebook brings together the genres of deep and immersive character creation, survival gameplay, base building and improvement, hex crawl adventuring, and kingdom-level siege mechanics. Set in the world of the hit online title, Conan: The Exiles Sourcebook lets players experience the Exiled Lands firsthand, with unique content from that world allowing for a truly unique Conan roleplaying experience.
