Funcom’s Vice President of PR and Marketing took to Twitter today to point players in the direction of a new pen-and-paper Conan RPG that’s on Kickstarter. While this is a good example of espirit de corps between shared IPs, Funcom had a specific reason for mentioning it: By backing the Kickstarter, players could earn rewards for Age of Conan.
By pledging at least at the 15 level, players can secure an “Adventures in an Age Undreamed of Pack” for their characters in Age of Conan. It looks like these packs are good for starting characters, as each contains five XP potions and four starter armor sets (Swashbuckler, Buccaneer, Marauder, and Pirate).
It should be mentioned that the Conan RPG book has already passed double its original goal and is pushing hard toward several stretch goals.
