Next week is Conan Week

In the lead-up to the release of the new Conan movie on the 19th, I'll be posting each day next week about the character and his creator, pulp writer Robert E. Howard. I continue to bat around ideas for a Conan RPG campaign, and I hope this series of posts will help with that process and inspire others to take a look at the source material: Howard's original stories.

In related news, Dark Horse Comics is offering a bundle of the electronic versions of Conan issues #0-19 (by Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord) for $20! I'm not sure how long the sale lasts, but their Facebook page seems to suggest that it runs through this weekend.

Dude, a Conan campaign would be dooooope!

Over on my blog Ménage à Monster, I've been going through The Complete Chronicles of Conan and converting the monsters from each of the stories to 4e D&D. It's a slow, ongoing project, but it’s been a lot of fun (eight months in and I'm about to do Queen of the Black Coast - only 14 or 15 more to go).

I know the edition I'm using isn't your favoured flavour of the game, but there might be something useful in there for you.

@ Marquez: Awesome! :)

@ Victor Von Dave: I've been following your conversion posts. You're doing great work! I find something useful no matter what edition the stats might be for. Keep it going!
