$24.99

WELCOME TO THE HYBORIAN AGE!

KNOW, O PRINCE, THAT BETWEEN THE YEARS WHEN THE OCEANS DRANK ATLANTIS AND THE GLEAMING CITIES, AND THE YEARS OF THE RISE OF THE SONS OF ARYAS, THERE WAS AN AGE UNDREAMED OF, WHEN SHINING KINGDOMS LAY SPREAD ACROSS THE WORLD LIKE BLUE MANTLES BENEATH THE STARS...

Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of takes you into the world of Conan the Barbarian, where heroes raise blood-spattered swords against dire sorcery, exotic lands beckon to the daring, danger and treasure lurks in forgotten ruins, and where loathsome creatures haunt the spaces beneath the earth… as well as in the throne-rooms of mighty kingdoms!

Seek your fortune in forbidden tombs or upon blood-soaked battlefields. Cast dark and terrible spells of unimaginable power, at the price of your soul. Sail upon untamed seas to lands where no human in living memory has walked. Fight for the fate of civilization — or barbarism — on a savage frontier!

  • Create your own legend in this decadent and violent world.
  • Complete 2d20 game system, including combat, skills, talents, sorcery, and equipment suitable for adventuring in the age before history.
  • An extensive gazetteer covering the whole of Conan’s world: featuring fair Aquilonia, gloomy Cimmeria, magic-haunted Stygia, all the way to the far-off steaming jungles of Khitai.
  • Extensive guidelines for running scenarios and campaigns in the Hyborian Age, allowing gamemasters to create suitably Howardian adventures.
  • Fearsome foes, ranging from bandits to sorcerers, apes to giant serpents, Children of Set to frost giants, forest devils, and characters of renown such as Conan or his most deadly foe, Thoth-Amon.
  • Art a team of iconic Conan artists, including Tim Truman, Simon Bisley, Esteban Sanjulian, Maroto, Mark Schultz, Tomás Giorello, and more.
  • Developed in close consultation with award-winning Conan scholars, this is the most authentic depiction of Conan and his world ever published for games.

The update contains "Conan_-_Character_Sheet_-_Basic_-_No_background.pdf" which, unfortunately, does have a background. Please provide a character sheet with no background.
Also, it would be very helpful to have a "no background" compendium of the essential combat tables.

Modiphius released optimized PDFs of the Core Books for the Kickstarter Backers that are about 70 MB on March 31st. Is it possible to update the PDF here as well to the optimized format? It will save a bandwidth and a lot of trouble.

Quick question for the publishers/developers. I backed at the PFD Master level after the Kickstarter concluded and have already received the final PDF. Because it's distributed outside DriveThru it obviously isn't on my library here, I can't rate or review. Is there a plan to address this?

It's a minor issue (after all, I do have the game), but I've been enjoying Conan tremendously and would like to write a review.

With that out of the way, my group's already having great times with this system and all the obvious effort that's gone into it! It's an exciting and dynamic pulp-action game, just a ton of fun. Congratulations to everyone involved in its production.

I backed the same pledge during the kickstarter. If we want to write a review, we still have option for writing it down here, and phrase our rating for this book.only question is, if there should be any updated version for pdfs, would we get the same advantage as Drivethru/OneBookShelf does?

Hi guys, yes backers will be updated via Pledge Manager, once all the pdf's are issued we'll add them to drivethrough accounts as well. We have a complex list of backers for each book which would require a lot of admin which is why we're keeping the books on PledgeManager for now.

Very good work people!
I just peeked, but both this pdf that the rules seem to be great.

To me, this is a more simple and light version of the Mutant Chronicles rules, but in a good way.
I have non played, but i'm getting ready to play one of the prepared adventures made available (which are very interesting)

Again: very good work people.
I await the paper version to buy.

I have two questions. One, is this setting potentially going to be adapted to any other systems? If it goes the way of Mutant Chronicles, that would mean Savage Worlds, and I would like seeing an "official" Conan the Barbarian Savage Worlds setting done, as it is my system of choice.

Two, and on the other hand regarding the system changing for the setting, this 2d20 system is rather interesting. Do you think there would be any chance of a "core rules" version of the 2d20 system being published? While I can understand if that is unlikely, a sort of universal version of this system would be most interesting. The lack of such a general framework is why I haven't looked into the Ubiquity System stuff, among other things, and I thing for the system itself, I would be most interested in that.

There is no urgency to these questions, I am just curious. Please get back to me if you can.

Conan won't appear in other rules systems sorry :-)

Yes we are planning a system neutral book with a license to let people produce their own games.

The two main PDFs are downloading as 11 and 34 MB, neither opens in any of several programs. Whatever you've uploaded here, they aren't good PDFs.

That is only a partial download as both are bigger than that. Your connection likely crashed during the download corrupting the file. Try saving to Dropbox direct, download the files separately, or try a faster and/or more stable connection.

Hello I'm having issues downloading either the Regular or Printer Friendly Version, for some reason they are just failing to load.
Customer avatar
Luke W February 05, 2017 9:14 am UTC
It's a big download, so it may be worth trying to download it again or as individual PDFs rather than a bundle as chances of corruption are high.

I've tried multiple times on my Laptop and Iphone: on the Laptop any instance of me downloading either the regular version or the printer friendly version ends with a message saying failed to load or the files are damaged. On my Iphone they just crash the page or I end up with a black page at the end.

The file labeled printer-friendly seems to be the full-color copy (131MB), and the file not so labeled downloads but won't open because the file "is corrupt or not a PDF" (92MB). Just letting you know.

checking this but I've not seen any other reports - have you tried downloading again. the printer friendly version is correct .

Weird: I've just tried again, and suddenly it's telling me the non-printer-friendly PDF of the core rules is 156MB, not 92. Apparently, the problem was on my end, though I'd be hard pressed to explain how or why.

Anyway, thanks for following up so quickly.

The official printing will be starting soon. Would keep an eye out on your favored retailers over the next few months. EDIT Chris beat me to it.

If the quality of their hardback is like that of their Mutant Chronicles 3rd Edition book, I'll be quite happy.

The corebook is 150MB. Large but more manageable than the total 300MB makes it seem. You can download the pdfs individually.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
