Conan Player's Guide

Watermarked PDF

The Player’s Guide to Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of takes you into the world of Conan the Barbarian, a place where astonishing heroes battle loathsome monsters, raise swords against dire sorcery, and travel to exotic and unknown lands!

Within these covers you’ll find all the information you need to create a wide range of characters, whether heroic barbarians, bold rogues, seasoned mercenaries, wise priests, stealthy archers, hardy nomads, or more!

The Conan Player's Guide is aimed at firmly at players of the game and contains content drawn entirely from the Conan Roleplaying game core book. If you own the core book, you don't need to purchase this book. GMs may wish to let their players and RPG groups know it is available though!

Create your own legend in the time before history!

• Everything you need to create characters from across the whole of Conan’s world, including skills, talents, and more. Discover if you’re the descendant with an ancient bloodline that survived the Cataclysm! 
• Choose or roll to create the character you want, picking options such as homeland, attributes, archetype, caste, family history, nature, education, and more. 
• Select your starting gear from a wide range of equipment, whether broadsword a Bossonian bow, horned helmet and scale-mail hauberk... or a sorcerous circle of power. 
• All the 2d20 core rules you need to play, including task resolution, features like Momentum and Fortune, struggles, combat, and more. 
• Art by a team of iconic Conan artists.
• Developed in close consultation with award-winning Conan scholars, this is the most authentic depiction of Conan and his world ever published for games.

This item have the same problem that Player's Guide to Mutant Chronicles? The MCPG file don't allow shut off the layers to get a printer friendly version.

Is the Conan game playable with just this book? Or do you actually need the Corebook for some of the mechanics? Just asking because I'm interested in the mechanics but not of the setting setting information, adventures or GM advice.

The book has everything you need as a player but you will need the core book for the GM mechanics, adversaries stats, adventures, experience rules etc.

I have to say I was pretty disappointed with the Players Guide. We had a lot of confusion with ranged attacks when we found that the key passage about difficulty increasing with range was missing from the Players Guide (which the players were reading, while I was reading the core book). It is missing all the sorcery and alchemy information which means that character generation for anyone who picks alchemy (in my case an assassin) requires the core book as well. I also found out this evening that the displays of power sections (which are definitely player facing) are also missing from it.

I love the other books but if I'd bought this (rather than got it as part of a larger pledge on the Kickstarter) I'd have been really annoyed. I'd just stick with the corebook.

Original electronic
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.
