Age of Conan gets tabletop crossover sourcebook

    
20

Funcom is no longer merely promoting the successfully funded Conan pen-and-paper roleplaying game; it’s now becoming an active part of its development. The creators of the new game announced yesterday that it will be working with the MMO studio to create a crossover sourcebook featuring Age of Conan.

“The sourcebook for the Conan roleplaying game will be written with assistance from Funcom’s own Age of Conan team,” the Kickstarter creators said. “It brings many of the unique locations, characters, creatures, monsters, and equipment from the computer game to the tabletop.”

This sourcebook will contain iconic locales such as Tortage and Ymir’s pass. The Conan roleplaying game has proven to be a smash success on Kickstarter, raising over $335,000 (out of a $65,344 goal) with 16 days to go in its campaign.

Agreed. 
I’ve been involved in enough Kickstarters which did precisely what they said they would, and delivered the product they said they would, that this whole “Kickstarter is all a scam” narrative only makes those who subscribe to it seem uninformed to me.
Are their scams on Kickstarter? Sure. But they don’t invalidate Kickstarter itself as a funding model.
There are scams possible wherever money changes hands, because … money. The best one can do is pay attention to details; trust your instincts (i.e. if it “feels wrong”, it probably is) and — as my father taught me years ago — “never risk or gamble money you can’t afford to lose”.
Cheers,

Modiphius are kicking out (or translating in many cases) some great stuff. I love the Mutant Chronicles 3rd edition game, Infinity seems like a really cool setting, and I’ve heard nothing but great things about Mutant: Year Zero. People on here, at least a couple certain ones, love to talk about how Kickstarter is just 100% vaporware scamsite, but the amount of great P&P RPGs that have come from it are easy proof against that.

Publisher Modiphus has a free preview PDF of the upcoming paper-game rules available right now over on RPGNow.

If this link doesn’t take you there —

http://www.rpgnow.com/product/174829/Robert-E-Howards-CONAN-Roleplaying-Game-Quickstart?manufacturers_id=4329

… then just search for the publisher, Modiphus, on the base website.

You’ll have to create an RPGNow account to make the download, but RPGNow is legit; I’ve been buying from them for years and years now, with no problems. 
Just be sure to turn off announcements in your account settings, if you don’t want to receive product news e-mails from any publishers you might buy from …

It is a good themepark. Now anyway. But its on life support pretty much. I sorta wish Funcom would make AoC 2, but im dubiuos theyd succeed. Plus they are financially strapped right now anyway.

Thats was my thought too. What team? it doesnt even have a Game Director anymore and the last dev that actually communicated with the players left months ago.
I wish this “AoC Team” would actually do something with the game, that we all pay a sub for (i actually sub – but mostly to log on, talk shit to mates, than log off, very sporadically lololol.)

Koshelkin Damonvile Wratts  if they had kept the same level of polish that the game has on its 1-20 expience then I would love this game…. that and if your conversation choices actually did something. 

I mean it doesn’t matter what response you give the NPC always gives the same exact response.  Maybe i’m spoiled by SWTOR

That’s sweet, it’ll be like a souvenir of the mmo when it finally goes tits-up.
Seriously, though, l love REHs world and I really liked the game, and aside from some fundamental unfairness in their current service model that’s simply unacceptable to me, I’d probably be playing it.

Koshelkin Damonvile Wratts Does that all magically go away now and not count as a reason why this game never amounted anything ? It had a huge population at launch and every reason to be a massive success. You talk about lack of content being the reason you quit….where else would you point the finger if not at them driving off most of the player base shortly after launch ?
