Robert E. Howard's Conan
Adventures In An Age Undreamed Of

For the record, I missed Modiphius' incredible Kickstarter that brought the RPG to life, and, for that, I may never forgive myself. 

I grew up on Conan.  I read some of Howard's original writings when I was very young, followed by some of the novels written by Robert Jordan and others.  As a kid, I watched Arnold's movies (maybe a bit edited) over and over... and over... and over.  While my friends in junior high were praising The Lord of the Rings, I was bored to no end by the constant prattling on that I found so common to English authors.  By page twenty I said, "Conan would have left a trail of bodies by now!"  

Sticks in the woods became my Atlantean sword as I fought the great scenes from the movies again and again, knowing them and their incredible choreography by heart.  Of course, I fought as Conan, vanquishing foes on the left and right with the exact moves from those flicks, but sometimes, just sometimes, I found myself in the shoes of an unseen ally, a character not in the stories or movies, but without whom Conan couldn't triumph. 

Over and over in the 80s and early 90s, I played (and still own) the original Conan AD&D modules by TSR.  My friends humored me, but invariably they'd whine, "Why can't we bring our own characters?  I hate pre-made characters!"  To which I replied, "Conan would quickly bore of your effete complaints."

As I grew older, I forgot about Conan and Hyboria, but I cannot help to think that my own fantasy writings, at least the style of them, were heavily influenced by that gritty, blood soaked setting of fantasy pulp writing.  I wouldn't stay away for long though.  Eventually, I itched to trod jeweled kingdoms beneath my sandaled feet, and I've spent the last few years collecting everything Conan I can find, including comic books (new and old), swords, out of print novels, and, of course, Modiphius amazingly rich role-playing game. 

I played it once, and immediately purchased (at great expense) all of the books.  Honestly, I haven't even read most of them through yet.  There is so much content, so much amazing depth to Hyboria, and Modiphius has curated it with the loving care of only true and ardent fans!  My hats off to them, and I look forward to this game being just one more way that the greatest of all fantasy heroes lives on in the hearts of the next generations!

My small contribution to that end - I will begin producing fan-made content for this incredible game, free to any who wish to play it, especially those who would bring new players into the fold!  My first attempt is below - Sanctum of the Burning Souls - briefly detailed in the new Age of Conan sourcebook and a wildly popular epic dungeon in the Age of Conan MMO RPG video game.
