GURPS Classic: Conan

( 15 )
$9.99

The Greatest Hero of the Hyborian Age Was a Barbarian: Conan of Cimmeria!

Black-haired and sullen-eyed was Conan, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth. Cycles of legend revolve around his name, glimpses of a world before history, where evil wizards performed dark sorcery, and where the fate of an empire turned on the strength and skill of a single sword.

GURPS Conan lets you enter the Hyborian Age, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles across the stars . . . Zamora, with its dark-haired women and towers of spider-haunted mystery; Zingara with its chivalry; Stygia with its shadow-guarded tombs; Hyrkania whose riders wore steel, silk, and gold; and powerful Aquilonia, the proudest kingdom of the world.

GURPS Conan includes:

  • A gazetteer featuring the people, customs, laws, religion, and mysteries of 34 lands in the world of Conan.
  • A bibliography of Conan stories: names, races and nationalities, places, and more.
  • Maps and historical information for the entire Thurian continent, from the isles of Antilla to the coast of Khitai.
  • Spells of the Hyborian Age, including the enchantments of the mysterious Black Ring and the potent sorceries of the Book of Skelos.
  • Rules for generating Hyborian Age characters.
  • Advice on running a Hyborian Age campaign and how to roleplay the non-human races, including Degenerate Men, Serpent People, and Satyrs.
  • GURPS stats for characters from the Conan saga, including Conan, Bêlit, and Thoth-Amon.

Based on the Conan stories by Robert E. Howard, L. Sprague de Camp, and others.
