Conan: Adventures In An Age Undreamed Of

If you’re looking to have some adventures in Conan the Barbarian’s Hyboria, now is a great time to invest thanks to the Bundle of Holding. The RPG bundle site has two special deals going on through July 29th, offering a Conan Essentials bundle that features everything you need for roleplaying in the Hyborian Age as well as a Hyborian Ways Bundle that includes extra supplements and adventure collections.

The Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of RPG was funded by Modiphius in 2016, in its most successful Kickstarter to date. Set in Howard’s Hyborean age, the game includes all of the elements a Conan fan might expect from dark gods and magic to barbaric civilizations, all perfect for high adventure games. The system uses the 2d20 system Modiphius uses for Mutant Chronicles 3E, Star Trek Adventures and other games in which you resolve tasks with 2d20, attempting to roll as low as possible for success.

The Conan Essentials bundle is exactly what it says and includes what you need to get a game going in the Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of corebook, the Conan GM Screen and Gamemaster Toolkit, and the Conan Map Bundle. Paying more than the average price (currently $25.39) will add in the Bonus Collection of four supplements: location sourcebook Ancient Ruins & Cursed Cities, sorcery supplement The Book of Skelos, bestiary Horrors of the Hyborian Age, and the self-explanatory Nameless Cults.

For those already familiar with the game or who just want to dive all-in from the get-go, the Hyborian Ways bundle offers additional supplements. At $9.95, you get location sourcebook Conan the Barbarian along with the campaign book Conan the Thief and Jeweled Thrones of the Earth, a collection of adventures. Paying above the average price (currently $20.51) also gets you three more campaign sourcebooks in Conan the Brigand, Conan the Pirate, and Conan the Mercenary.

In addition to getting a discount, 10% of each purchase (after gateway fees) for the offers are donated to a charity chosen by Modiphius’ Chris Birch. Burch chose Vision Rescue, noting, “Our goal is to raise US$20,000 for a Vision Rescue Bus, one of the projects the charity uses to help combat child slavery in India.”

The offers will be available until July 29th.
