Robert E Howard's Conan Modiphius

Modiphius have launched Robert E. Howard’s Conan roleplaying game Kickstarter and they’ve managed to pull together one of the biggest line-ups ever for a roleplaying game led by Brom and featuring Tim Truman, Estaban Maroto, Mark Schultz, Tomas Giorello, Sanjulian, Liam Sharp, Simon Bisley, Daren Bader, Val Mayerik, Aleksi Briclot, Carl Critchlow, Phroilan Gardner, Paolo Parente, Tom Grindberg, Alex Horley, Simon Bisley, Giogio Baroni, Josh Hass, Michael Syrigos & Jorge Barerro – with some more big names still to be announced.

It’s using Modiphius 2d20 system which is used in Mutant Chronicles, Infinity and John Carter RPG’s – a fast flowing cinematic roleplaying system. Every book in the Conan range is a gorgeous full colour hardback and written by an amazing line up of writers led by Jason Durall and Conan scholar Jeffrey Shanks. The whole line is being lovingly crafted to be true to the original stories and this is truly Conan roleplaying as Robert E. Howard wrote it – savage pulp adventure battling ancient horrors in the Hyborian Age

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
