"Conan the Exiles Sourcebook" is a 120 pages long supplement for the Modiphius D20 Conan RpG. Inspired by the on-line game, this book gives rules to roleplay it on tabletop, and stunning art from the net adorns many pages of it. As always, interesting character archetypes are given. There is a section about the Exiled Lands, but it is quite vague, so much that we'll surely prefer to have a look at the Conan Exiles wikia for more information. I don't understand why they didn't take back the rules from "Ancient Ruins and Cursed Cities". In fact, the real interest of the book lies in its many rules taylored to roleplay survival. They explain how players can create basic facilities with their bare hands and step-by-step improve them up to cities ! For this, hexcrawl rules are given, with "resources" generation for each kind of biome, and an interesting encounter table. The survival game can be played at different scales, at the individual one, with "ingredients", or at a group level, with "material". The only regret I have here is that no measure unit is indicated for how wide those hexes are. Apart from this, there are detailed rules for (bad) weather, settlement management and war. If you want to create a harsh setting with no stable power (no money, no national "pride") but day-to-day survival, then this book is for you !

This book expands on possible pc creation covering playing a person cast out by your civilization. Included are weapon and equipment charts to help flesh out your hero. The book also contains information on different geographical parts of the world and how they would effect your charcter. The magic section includes avatars from different gods and how to use them. The book also includes a section on settlements, how to build and expand them. The book also has a section on waging war and has tips and rules on how to play out a battle. A small section on new beasts is also included.

I liked the book for several reasons. First the concept of being exiled from your homeland is a concept on developed much in other systems so its nice to see. Second, the informastion on the different lands and how the enviorment plays a role adds some ideas players and gms might not think to consider. Third, the settelemnt section is great for ideas and rules on how to create and upgrade a location in a thoughtout way. Finally the section on waging a war gives some good tips and rules for including a battle in your game.

Although I've never played the Conan the Exiles videogame, this sourcebook definitely makes me want to. It contains rules for starting your character cast out from civilization, left to wander the Exiled Lands to seek both shelter and glory. There are numerous character options as well as dozens of exciting locales to adventure in. There are also rules for creating and maintaining a settlement as well as rules for war on a large scale that are among the least cumbersome I've seen, making for simple but exciting resolution. I found the sections on Gods and summoning Avatars to be especially interesting and they provide rules for devastating powers that I can't wait to incorporate into my ongoing game. This book certainly follows the high standards of the prior Conan sourcbooks having both rules and ideas to fuel many enjoyable campaigns.
