Ever since there was role-playing, people wanted to recreate Conan in a game, and at last a game which does so faithfully has been published.
Publisher's blurb: "Know, oh prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an Age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars Nemedia, Ophir, Brythunia, Hyberborea, Zamora with its dark-haired women and towers of spider-haunted mystery, Zingara with its chivalry, Koth that bordered on the pastoral lands of Shem, Stygia with its shadow-guarded tombs, Hyrkania whose riders wore steel and silk and gold. But the proudest kingdom of the world was Aquilonia, reigning supreme in the dreaming west. Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.
"Torn from the pages of Howard's original vision, Conan the Roleplaying Game is a faithful realisation of the vivid world of the Cimmerian barbarian that allows you to follow in his footsteps and create adventurers, scoundrels and fell sorcerers in the Hyborian age.
"Conan the Roleplaying Game features everything you need to explore the lands of Hyboria, including a complete system of character creation and advancement, combat and sorcery. This epic tome fully details the world of Howard's mighty Cimmerian, from the mysterious islands hovering off the coast of Zingara in the west, to the legendary kingdoms beyond the steppes and deserts of Hyrkania to the east; from the frozen lands of Nordheim to the verdant jungles of the Black Kingdoms, the world of Conan stands before you."
