Conan The Wanderer Sourcebook

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to the mysterious East!


Conan the Wanderer is an essential guide to the kingdoms of the East, a land barely explored by Conan during his illustrious lifetime. Nowhere in the Hyborian world is such a rich and varied array of countries, ranging from the rocky hills of Afghulistan, to the untamed steppes of Hyrkania, to the steaming jungles of Khitai, to the opulent palaces of old Vendhya.

This 120 page PDF source book contains:

  • New homelands, castes, talents, backgrounds, stories, and gear for wanderers.
  • New character archetypes: Beggar, Court Official, Emissary, Horse Nomad, Mystic, and Vagabond.
  • A gazetteer covering the kingdoms to the East: Ghulistan, Hyrkania, Iranistan, Kosala, Vendhya, and mysterious Khitai.
  • The strange and terrible magic of the East, where the denizens of Yag are worshipped as gods.
  • Secrets of ominous Mount Yimsha, home to the fearsome Black Circle.
  • Statistics for Conan the Wanderer, as he explores kingdoms far from his homeland.
  • Art and maps produced by new and renowned Conan artists.
  • Developed with leading Conan scholars, this is the place for adventure in the Far East of the Hyborian Age, as Howard might have imagined it!

This book requires the Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of corebook to use.

To the publisher. You should offer both versions, the "Sensitivity" edit and the original edit for those who want it. Let the customer decide which version they would rather have.

You really think that "they" will let you choose freely what to read & think? They know better of course!

Modiphius has said that other books going forward will receive the same "Sensitivity" treatment as The Wanderer. I don't know if other books have already been affected by this which is why I'm just not going to buy any more of them. If they want to pander to the six people that complained that the fictional world of Conan and it's people was too harsh for their refined sensibilities then that's their going out of business mistake. The Hyborian age is a brutal place as REH wrote it so, full of slavery, sexuality and battle. So I ask you "What is best in life?" Answer - Not Nerfing Conan products to appease the few while the many who signed up for the TRUE REH CONAN EXPERIENCE as was promised by the KS are disregarded to please people who can't handle the fictional source material. What's next, someone doesn't like violence in Conan so now Wounds become Owwies! and nobody ever dies by Savage Foam Sword of Conan the Barbarian?

Wanderer and Adventurer were the only books that required a deeper sensitivity read and adjustments as a result. In fact it was numerous backers raised issued with Adventurer in the first place. The other books have not required a sensitivity read and remain unchanged from the versions backers have seen. Please note NO WORDING of REH has been changed in the sensitivity edit. Only wording used by the writers to expand on the world and flesh it out with more information. Both REH scholars who have overseen the project and the REH estate agreed on the work required

So changing the exporting of Lotus to the exporting of "treasures" doesn't seem problematic to you considering that Khitai is known for it? It's just needless censorship to pander to people who can't handle reading fictional works about fictional peoples in fictional lands. REH wrote plenty that would upset the SJW Woke crowd, if you give in every time one of them winces you may as well cancel the entire line before taking a red marker to it and ruining it to cater to the overly sensitive. Conan - Adventures in a Politically Correct, Pronoun Neutral, Gender Balanced Age Unwanted.

And how many people were against the sensitivity edits vs the few who had complaints? You are losing your base with modern politically correct bs when you apply it to people's hobbies, it didn't work for Lucasfilm and it isn't going to work here either. Pander to the sjw minority if you will but you are betraying the majority of us who aren't too thin skinned to accept the gritty tropes of REH's world and writing style. I'm done buying your WOKE Conan products and so are a lot of other people, I hope you're happy, I know your bottom line won't be.

Don't buy this! A week ago the original version has been repklaced by a cultural sensitive version leading to the original authors withdrawning their names. Many of the changes which BTW were approved by the licence holder do not make sense. Since when is the term "Martial Arts" cultural insensitive? Since when is mentioning the ancient Indian caste system cultural insensitive? Since when is the word "exotic" cultural insenstive?

Thank you. Is there any way I can get my hands on a pre PC version of this file so that I don't have to skip it all together?
Customer avatar
Matthias B November 13, 2020 7:22 am UTC
Not legally, but everyone who bought and downloaded it before November should have the original version (as long as they did not replace it with the censored version).

When will this be available in print?

Backers will get their shipments first once the warehouses re-open, then we'll start releasing the books likely one a month through the year so roughly speaking summer?

What are the next in line? Kull of Atlantis? Is the Pict's book part of the next wave (wave 4?)?

Checked the preview. According the book's table of contents it doesn't cover Hyrkania (as stated above).
Customer avatar
Hauke S April 01, 2020 4:42 pm UTC
It does from page 37 to 43 as well as in the charakter section.

RODRIGO R April 01, 2020 5:45 pm UTC
Thank you. Then the problem is with the table of contents.

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.
