Does that mean noone holds the licence now?
If that is true, where would you like to see it end up?

I have about 2/3rds of all the Conan published material (novels, colour comics, black & white magazines,etc.) but have never played an RPG set in the Hyborian Age.

On the http://www.conan.com, one of people who worked on some d20 Conan supplements (Eric Rodriguez) mentioned having a chat with Fredrik Malmberg of Paradox, and the latter mentioned that something is moving in the RPG field, so probably they are trying to find another company to create an RPG. It's too good of a licence to make it sit there.

And in turn, Howard's Hyperborea in the Hyborian Age is distinctly different from Smith's Hyperborea. Although I suppose the game itself could be used for an Hyborian Age game with some changes.

I am excited to see what Modiphius Entertainment will do with their RPG coming out in August this year!

He was one of the producers of the Mongoose 2E version of the d20 Conan game. I only know him by his name, not specifically by the quality of his work, however he has gotten a lot of praise for the quality of his work by those that supported the D20 Conan game (Return to the Road of Kings being an example of Vinces' work)..Havard wrote:Who is Vincent Darlage?
Personally, I don't know anything about the company. They have stated on Facebook that it will use their in-house 2D20 system. I just looked up their website and pulled up their product list, Modiphius produced the Mindjammer game, which is on my list of books to get, if that uses their 2D20 system than I should be able to provide some more information about it soon.Havard wrote:Also, what else do you know about this new license holder? Anything we could use to speculate on what the new game will be like?
