Hi on Sunday we updated the Conan Quickstart files to v3.5 but it looks like some of you couldn’t download them and didn’t get this message. That error has been cleared now so you should be able to see the new file in your downloads.
I’ve also now added a 2 page PDF outlining the changes in the Quickstart so you know what has been updated. If you’ve downloaded the files since sunday you don’t need this file!
We’ve had a fantastic first 2 weeks of the Conan Kickstarter, unlocking 7 gorgeous full colour hardbacks as well as two sets of fantastic adventure tiles for those who like to use miniatures (yes we’re looking at those great minis in the Monolith boardgame!). We also announced Joe Jusko, Ken Kelly and Cary Nord are joining the art team – it’s the biggest ever line up of artists for a roleplaying game!
We have some incredible pledges such as the £300 Hoard of Yezdigerd which gets you every single book revealed in the Stretch Goals (and not just unlocked – and we expect it to be worth over £600 at the end) or the £40 PDF Master which gets you every PDF unlocked in the campaign (which we expect to be worth about £150-£200 at the end)
Hope you’ll check out the Conan Kickstarter and let us know what you think, join in or let friends know that you think might be interested. We appreciate all your support.
Please share your comments on the Conan Quickstart – it’s great getting feedback so we can continue to improve it.
Enter the world of Kull the King a fantastic new source book for the Conan RPG
Today we’re hugely pleased to reveal the The World of Kull – King of Atlantis, a major cross-over book for Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of roleplaying game, featuring the acclaimed art of Justin Sweet
as well as contributions from Howard scholar & Kull expert Chris Gruber!
We’re incredibly excited that Justin and Chris are on board for this major new source book, which is presented as part of an exclusive agreement with Cabinet Entertainment and Conan Properties Incorporated. This sourcebook is the first of its kind: an official
guide to roleplaying in the antediluvian age of Conan’s spiritual forefather, the Atlantean barbarian-king known as Kull.
The World of Kull – King of Atlantis, is a major cross-over book for Robert E. Howard’s Conan Roleplaying Game and will feature the art of world-renowned fantasy artist and Kull specialist Justin Sweet, who won the Jack Gaughan award, has worked for Black Isle Studios and Wizards of the Coast, as well as producing concept art for the movies Prince Caspian, Snow White and the Huntsman and The Avengers
Contained within its pages are descriptions of the Thurian continent as it was a hundred thousand years ago, long before Conan’s own Hyborian Age. With this volume as their companion, heroes can visit Lemuria, Grondar, Atlantis, the Pictish Isles, Commoria, and the mightiest kingdom of them all… Valusia, City of Wonders. Visit the House of the Thousand Mirrors, seek wisdom at the depths of Forbidden Lake, battle the Skull of Silence, sail with Lemurian pirates to the World’s Edge, debate philosophy with Delcardes’ cat, or strive to claim the Topaz Throne!
Important characters of the age are described in detail, among them King Kull, his loyal ally Brule the Spear-Slayer, his Pictish advisor Ka-nu the Ancient, Chief Councillor Tu, the scholar Kuthulos, and a host of others. New monstrous creatures abound in this sourcebook, including the insidious Serpent Men and the strange and inhuman folk to the south. Also described are notable enemies who plague the age: the elder sorcerer Tuzun Thune as well as Kull’s greatest enemy, the immortal sorcerer Thulsa Doom.
Usable in tandem with Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, this sourcebook contains alternate life paths, cultural backgrounds, magic, gods, and more, bringing Kull’s savage ancient world to life.
Justin Sweet joins a host of other incredible artists to illustrate this legendary tome in what promises to be the biggest ever line ups of artists for a roleplaying game.

There’s still time to get involved with the Conan Kickstarter and secure some fantastic backers’ rewards, head on over to:
Robert E Howard’s Conan RPG and Age of Conan team up for a barbarous new crossover source book
Table top and video game fans get a double dose of Conan from Modiphius and Funcom
Modiphius Entertainment, creators of award-winning roleplaying games like Achtung! Cthulhu and acclaimed table top board games like Thunderbirds the 50th Anniversary co-op board game, is pleased to announce Age of Conan a new crossover sourcebook for its Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of Kickstarter campaign.
The Age of Conan sourcebook will take many of the most popular locations, characters, monsters and magic from Funcom’s celebrated Age of Conan MMORPG videogame, allowing players to experience them in a table top setting for the very first time.
The sourcebook for the Conan roleplaying game will be written with assistance from Funcom’s own Age of Conan team and further cements a partnership which sees Kickstarter backers receive additional benefits in the popular MMORPG.
he Age of Conan sourcebook offers expanded character generation rules with brand new backgrounds based on classes in Age of Conan, allowing players additional options such as even more dangerous magical powers.
The Age of Conan sourcebook will also contain secrets and background on some of the most exciting adventures and locations in the MMORPG such as:
Tortage is one of the largest Barachan Isles off the coast of Hyboria. It is a den of smugglers, thieves and pirates. The players in Age of Conan start their journey here and in the tabletop roleplaying game anyone can delve deeper into the mysteries and conspiracies of this corrupt viper’s nest.
The IronTower is a mighty prison in the Aquilonian capital city of Tarantia. It is a challenging dungeon in Age of Conan, where nothing is as it should be. It is filled with crooked guards, devious infiltrators, crazed prisoners and even darker forces lurk beneath the surface.
Ymir’s Pass lies between the barbarous lands of Cimmeria and the kingdoms to the south. It is a treacherous path through the mountains, where followers of the self-proclaimed bandit king Atzel, Frost Giants and Vanir raiders roam. Rumour has it that the oldest of the god Ymir’s children, the Frostfather himself, dwells here.
The Age of Conan Sourcebook will be a full-color 112 page hardcover book lavishly illustrated with concept and original art from Age of Conan.
