Conan : Tales of high adventure
Conan on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
ARE YOU READY FOR TALES OF HIGH ADVENTURE? Travel back in time to the hyborian age and dive into the world of Robert E Howard's Conan, a world where savagery and civilization clash, where sorcerers make dark pacts in haunted tombs and where the only thing you can trust is the blade gripped in your hand. Using the 2d20 system, Conan is a cinematic sword and sorcery roleplaying game that emulates the feeling of an epic pulp adventure. Fight with fury and savagery, dispatching many foes with a single swing, battle ancient horrors and dark magics and tread the jewelled thrones of the earth! Your adventure begins in an argossean port. Down on your luck and in need of coin you have signed on to join a crew of adventurers and pirates in search of a mysterious island that is said to hold a vault of ancient treasures. However, such things in the Hyborian age are never that simple and you will have to contend with rival pirate groups, a dark and sinister cult and a powerful evil sorcerer that wants the island's secrets all for themselves.
How to prepare
As a player you don't need to know the world of Conan, so even if your only experience is the 80s movie that is fine. You will need roll20 and discord to play and a character concept in mind. Don't have a fully fleshed out character as I'd liked to create the adventuring party together and work on backstories to really bring the characters to life. If you want to read up the rules that would be wonderful but I am also more than happy to teach. In order to play the game you will need microphones, a roll20 account, discord and if possible a webcam. A webcam is not needed to play but would be appreciated. You won't need your own dice as roll20 will automate most of the dice rolling for you. However if you perfer physical dice, five d20s and at least 8d6s should cover you for the game. A notepad or some kind of journal is recomended as well so you can take notes.
What I provide
I will be using maps, tokens and soundtracks to bring the game alive.
Conan: Adventures in an age undreamed of uses the 2d20 system to create cinematic action. Instead of rolling high, you are aiming to roll equal or underneath your target number while extra successes create momentum allowing you to perform feats straight out of a sword and sorcery epic! Beware however because the GM also has doom, and can use this to throw spanners into the work, creating complications and exciting moments! It's a great system that has a little crunch but is still very easy to pick up and most importantly creates exciting combat and action moments.
Safety tools used
How will character creation work
Character creation will be done at the first session and I will take every player through character creation, helping them as much as I can on the way. I'd like to create not just a cohesive group of adventurers but companions, those who are seeking fortune and adventure together. We'll use most of the Conan books as well as the character creation tool online.
