'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

Another video entry.  We are looking at the new roleplaying game by Modiphius as well as Conan in general.  This will probably be a 4-5 part series on the game.

Flavours of.....The Hyborian Age

As my players move within the Hyborian Age kingdoms, I am creating a single page document called, "Flavours of...." to help flesh out cities and encounters with people on the fly.


So far I have created..... Flavours of Turan & Flavours of Argos which can be found below

I appreciate any feedback or suggestions people might have. Thanks for having a look!

DOOOM!

While following and participating in discussions on the new 2d20 system, and the concept of the DOOM mechanic, it was brought up that it could be used to build tension. As the players are adding to the doom pool and using it to build successes it is always in the back of their mind that the GM has this resource and it will eventually come back and haunt the PCs.

It is a cool mechanic.

While playing the system I found that while using a screen it prevented the players from seeing just how much DOOM that had accumulated. I had tossed around ideas in my head including a drawer like system that you could pull to your side, add doom, and push back to the PC side of the screen.

My final solution, which has not been used in a game yet, but I think has some cool potential.

It is a simple solution. 3x5 note card. Divide into 4 segments, draw skulls on them, fold them over. PCs add to the doom pool? Now that can clearly see how many skulls they have accumulated that may bite them in the ass.

What do you think? leave a comment below and let me know!
