Welcome to the throne!

WHEN I WAS A FIGHTING-MAN, THE KETTLE-DRUMS THEY BEAT, THE PEOPLE SCATTERED GOLD-DUST BEFORE MY HORSE’S FEET; BUT NOW I AM A GREAT KING, THE PEOPLE HOUND MY TRACKWITH POISON IN MY WINE-CUP, AND DAGGERS AT MY BACK.

Just as Conan’s ultimate destiny was to claim the throne of Aquilonia, the crown jewel of the Hyborian civilizations, Conan the King is the ultimate sourcebook to those kingdoms and the most dangerous battlefield of all: that of the court. With the guidelines contained within this book, players may fight to earn thrones of their own… or die trying.

  • New options for player characters include the Courtier, Healer, Knight, Minstrel, and Noble, including new castes, talents, background stories, and other options.
  • The flower of the Hyborian world: regal Aquilonia, where Conan became king.
  • Guidelines for campaigns set on the road to the throne, or the intrigues and plots within the court.
  • Monstrous foes such as Satha the Undying, Yogtha the demon-plant of Yag, winged night-mounts, and the demonic slave of the Ring.
  • Allies and enemies such as Zelata the witch; the mad poet Rinaldo; the exiled priest Orastes; Xaltotun, resurrected lord of ancient Acheron; and more.
  • Myths and magic of the dreaming west, from the state religion of Mitra to the hidden cult of Asura, with items such as the Heart of Ahriman and entities like the ghost of Epemitreus the Sage.
  • New rules for the ultimate measures of status within the court: holdings and titles.
  • Art and maps developed by new and experienced Conan creators.
  • Developed with leading Conan scholars, this is the essential guide to the treacherous courts and battlefields of the Hyborian Age, just as Howard envisioned them!
  • Important members of court such as Counselor Publius, Count Trocero, General Prospero, Zenobia the slave who became queen, and finally, King Conan.

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

Are you aware that Robert E. Howard died 1936, and over 70 years has passed since his death, making his work public domain (at least in most of the world)? I don't know a country where one can trademark stuff under public domain works, but just to clarify, you are really claiming the ownership of Robert E. Howard's work?

PUBLISHER
The Robert E Howard estate continues to maintain copyrights on terms related to Conan, and through their work ensures that the Conan books remain in publication using their original authentic texts, not later texts edited by different authors which has happened in the past. They also work to promote his stories, and the world of Conan, to get it in front of more people and help more people discover the books. This means people continue to be able to get access to the works of REH, and that related merchandise like these games, films, clothing etc is maintained at a high level of quality.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but the *copyright* of Robert E Howard's work has expired, making the original works Public Domain. What you are referring to is the *trademark* of terms related to Conan? I have no personal interest in testing this legally, but I have worries of public domain works in general being trademarked (essentially belonging to the humankind). If you are only referring that the copyright covers latter work (not public domain work), it's quite a different case indeed, copyrights are useful, but if you are referring that trademark covers also original Robert E. Howards work, how is that different from registering a trademark "Shakespeare" or "Plato" and using that to commercialize those, which obviously are now considered Public Domain?

It's trademark and copyright on terms such as names and places and others related to the books, not the books themselves.

PURCHASER
Is the PDF of Extras for Conan the King going to be added at some point to the download for the King or will that get released as a separate product to buy and download or is that a Kickstarter exclusive?

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.
