  4. End of turn X

    Yes, you're right, but it is said that you always advance turn marker one space in the Overlord's turn (not heroes turn) so : If the scenario specifies that the heroes start, then you put the turn marker on the "0"space and the heroes play...Now it's the OL's turn so you put the marker on the "1"space and the OL plays. After the OL, it's the heroes turn again and we still are on the "1" turn space. After the Heroes, it's OL's turn so you have to put the marker on the space number "2"...etc... If the scenario specifies that the OL starts, then you put the marker on the "0" space and the OL plays. BUT, when the OL plays, he has to put the market on the number "1" space (he does not play a "0" turn as the Heroes when they start. Then it's the turn of heroes, etc, etc... So yes, both side alternates turns, but as you only count turns when the OL plays we can say that a complete turn is always OL then Heroes. It's logic. OL is always the first to play in a turn....and this does not mean that he's just the first to play.

    Revised rulebook :
  8. The Robert E. Howard Guide

    Coming soon from Skelos Press! THE ROBERT E. HOWARD GUIDE by Patrice Louinet -- the English translation of the award-winning book that introduced a new generation of French fans to the father of sword and sorcery. The Robert E. Howard Guide was born out of years of scholarship, but took its final form after answering the same questions from fans over and over again. In many ways, Howard remains a “famous unknown writer," the man who single-handedly defined modern fantasy, but whose life and works are still known mostly filtered through adaptations, pastiches and gross approximations. Because of those specificities, he is more often than not known for what and who he *wasn’t*, for sentences he never wrote, or for characters who bear little resemblance – if any – to his original creations. This, in turn, explains how and why this book was conceived. It is sometimes amusing, sometimes sarcastic, but, built on 30 years of Howard scholarship, it is always insightful. A serious work... that tries not to take itself too seriously.
  9. End of turn X

    1 turn is : OL's turn : 1 Recovery, 2 Advance turn marker, 3 Activation, 4 End. Heroes' turn : 1 Start, 2 Stance, 3 Action, 4 End. A turn is always the OL playing first, then the Heroes = 1st turn is OL then Heroes, 2nd turn is OL then heroes, ... By exception if it's specified in the scenario that the heroes have to start = we've got a "0 turn" or "half' turn. So the heroes play once more than the OL. Example : in a 8 turns scenario, the heroes play 9 times and the OL 8 times if the heroes have to start. And yes, in your example, in a 8 turns scenario the Heroes finish the game because 1 turn is always OL then Heroes.
  10. [Core] Pict Village

    I say yes ! As we can see white lines between the areas, we can move minis from an area to the other. The fences don't touch the edges of the board, so the way is not blocked. Remembering, of course, that we cannot climb or smash down the fences.
  11. Howard life movie

    The movie is well adapted from the book "One Who Walked Alone", but as said before based on memories of an aged and married woman. This could change if the personal diary of Novalyne (still in the hands of his son), is released one day or another...

    And by the way... Conan by Monolith logo : And Ron Cobb's Conan The Barbarian production letterhead :
  13. Howard life movie

    It's really a good movie about the later years of Robert E. Howard, based on the bio-autographies "One Who Walked Alone" and "Day of the Stranger: Further Memories of Robert E. Howard" by Novalyne Price Ellis. The movie seems to be really close from what we know today about REH's life and Vincent D'Onofrio excellent in this role. However, it's necessary to explain that Novalyne was married and aged when she wrote her memories and, perhaps, we don't know everything about her relation with REH.
  14. Late Roman... Conan

    I'm sure that Ron Cobb knew this when he designed Conan. Source : http://roncobb.net/09-Conan.html And the amazing site of Ron Cobb : http://roncobb.net/
