Talomir Tales: Distant Shores

It's a broad topic, but it's essentially anything pre-gun era. Warrior Heroes, Red Sand Blue Sky, Rally Round the King for a start.

Talomir Tales: Distant Shores

I just got the book and have read through it. I... I don't have the words. I feel like I did when I was a kid reading Tarzan, or the John Carter of Mars books, or Conan. Very, very well done!

So you liked it? :lol:

Glad to see another Conan fan on the forum. Marvel have bought back the rights to Conan and will be publishing a big graphic novel full of many early Conan comics early next year. Huzzah!

Another BIG Conan fan here. Just bought Distant Shores and Warrior Heroes Legends and want to run a solo Conan campaign. Can anyone help with stats for the man himself or converting the encounter charts to the Hyborian world? I found the Hyborian armies doc for RRTK on the Yahoo group so I have the class and rep for some countries.

YOu can use the Reps and AC right from RRtK. Conan would be a Hero - Rep 8, AC 2.

Yeah, but here's the deal. Let's say he gets jumped by 3 Rep 4 warriors. All go to melee and all pass 2d6, including Conan. All suffer -1 to Rep, but Conan, fighting 3 guys, drops three times, down to Rep 5. Even worse, if there's a Rep 5 guy and 2 Rep 4 guys, there's a bigger chance of him dropping 3 points of Rep.
All Rep losses are regained after melee is over.

I get it. Well it wouldn’t be much fun if Conan were invincible. I tried a few sample fights with him at Rep 5 and it wasn’t working out. This should be better. Thanks

Yeah Rep 5s are pretty good when fighting one or maybe two enemies, but three and it gets dicey. Star Power helps a lot though.
