This latest incarnation of a Conan RPG comes from Modiphius, featuring an array of writers and artists backed up by scholarship designed to keep true to the original stories. The Hyborian Age, in which stores and game are set, is an era of great antiquity and renewal, brutality as well as beauty. Kingdoms rise amidst the remains of bygone lands, places that were themselves swept away in cataclysmic upheaval. Forgotten secrets of sorcery, ancient artifacts, and devices of strange science lurk undiscovered in moldering ruins within the walls of lost cities, to be discovered by the daring or the unwary. Gods have flourished and been forgotten, but the great black vale of eternity remains, and within this outer dark are cosmic horrors of a scale unimaginable, their evil beyond all comprehension. Humanity has crawled back from mere savagery time and again, and nations stand ready to rage across the map, sweeping away civilization once more in a tide of blood and iron.
Following a massive Kickstarter campaign, the first books were published early in 2017.
