Hyborian BoL [Calling First Age]

Appologies if you are already aware of the following First Age - but I thought this may be of interest.

The usual approach to running a BoL Conan game is to grab a copy of the Mongoose book Road of Kings and slap BoL on top.

 Jeff Mejia’s ‘Dicey Tales 2’ pdf includes a bestiary for pulp era adventures, which is useful for Hyborian games as it includes horses, wolves and other mundane creatures, (although stating up your own is hardly arduous).

The Strange Stones site hosts some BoL scenarios by G-Man. There are 3 Hyborian scenarios and also 3 Dark Fantasy/Lovecraftian ones that could be fitted into Hyboria with little work. You can find them here:

An American gamer who posted as daddystabz on the old Lords of Lemuria site did a lot of work on a Conan BoL game – a post about it can be found here:

Note that Lords of Lemuria died by spambot, so although there is good stuff there, it’s time consuming to find it now.

Note that all of the above are Legendary Edition material.

Thanks very much! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


I'm looking for exactly that list - Booms and Flaws for all the Hyborian peoples - everything else just slinks into place.

I'll construct such a list.

Cheers

Fantastic! Thank you.

So, I'll be looking to cross check this with the Mythic list and affirm them for my game. Great to have something to start with.

I must say that the charcter sheet is very good and inspirational. I'm unlikely to do better, but will use the included version as my base.

I'm running out of excuses to do this. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Your welcome. Since it's for Legendary edition, it could use updating to Mythic, so now you have work to do, and yes, no excuses lol

Re: Hyborian BoL [Calling First Age]

The character sheet does look excellent; as a minor point I did notice that "Hyborian" is spelled incorrectly on the sheet.


Wealth can be wonderful, but you know, success can test one's mettle as surely as the strongest adversary.

Re: Hyborian BoL [Calling First Age]

CORRECT!!! I saw this fault and thought: accident or intentional fault
It should be "Hyborian". In Poland there are two terms: Hyborian (translated into Hyboryjski, in books) and Hyborean (Hyborejski, used by strong group of fans). The latter sounds horribly for me...

It does look excellent, but one need to change this "Brawl".


Bow to Satan!!!
