  1. Reposting for Dan... Tales of the North v4.pdf Welcome to the North! I am thrilled to present my first ever collection of home-made scenarios for Conan by Monolith. Tales of the North is a collaborative effort between Ken Meyri and myself to collect 6 scenarios based on the Norheim expansion in a nice downloadable PDF booklet format. Tales of the North features a 3 page fan fiction intro, 3 scenarios that have been previously posted on the Overlord, along with 3 brand new scenarios exclusive to this booklet. Kunnia: a brand new scenario that involves sled dog racing! Fast, furious and replayable. Try it as a tounament. The Blasphemy of Gwaednerth: more of an encounter than a scenario, written to highlight a new miniature from Barbaric Splendor. (www.barbaricsplendor.com) Includes a new Hero card. Rescue in Nordheim: co-written with Ken, this scenario brings the story begun in the introduction to a chilling conclusion. Please enjoy and let me know what you think. Maybe, if there's enough interest, we will do a booklet for one of the other big box expansions in the future. (Tales of the North requires a King Pledgle and the Nordheim, Vanir Valkyrie, Demon of the Earth, Giant Wolves and Crossbowmen expansions. Components from Stygia and Corinthia are also used but substitution suggestions are made within the scenarios.)
  2. Can't wait to try this. I am still waiting for the book/tiles to be printed and shipped. Shouldn't be long now.
  3. Yes, Chips made one and posted it on the French website. Here is the link: https://the-overlord.com/index.php?/topic/2445-lombre-venue-de-stygie-fren/

    Agreed. Anyone can carry it. By the way, I guess that rule should hold for every scenario, but this is the only scenario that it isn't usable.

    I can answer this one: Always active.

    Neil Amswych @Primeval @Matt John S @drmauric It looks like some members of the French community are working on a translation. If no one objects, I am going to offer them my source files so they can compile the translation into the same package. Does that work for everyone?

    @Neil Amswych @Primeval @Matt John S @Footballzs @drmauric Has anybody had trouble printing the first few pages of the campaign?

    I went ahead and posted it under downloadable scenarios. I will also post a link on Board Game Geek, but Facebook will have to wait until tomorrow.
  9. Whispers from Stygia "Know, O Prince, that in the time when Conan the Cimmerian sat upon the Throne of Aquilonia there arose whispers from Stygia. Whispers of a scheming sorcerer whose black heart was set upon vengeance..." Whispers from Stygia is a campaign designed by the Conan Overlord Community at the-overlord.net. It requires the Core game, as well as the following expansions: Stygia, Khitai, Nordheim, Yogah of Yag, and the Crossbowmen. The outcome of each scenario will determine how well equipped the heroes and overlord are when they meet in the final scenario, which will determine the winner.

    @Matt John S @drmauric @Primeval @Neil Amswych OK, here is the updated PDF of the printable cards: Card Bonus.pdf I also attached it to the Whispers from Stygia PDF, which is ready to go. Matt, should I go ahead and create the post in Downloadable Scenarios, or do you want that under you? Here is a screenshot of what I was thinking:
  11. Nevermind. I forgot that Atali is already using the Kiss of Death, so that option is out. Regardless, I think the better option is to change the bonus.

    Here are the cards to keep track of the bonuses for review. I'm not an expert with print dimensions, so let's consider this a rough draft until I get to see what they look like printed. I will attach the high quality PDF version to the campaign when we are ready. 1. Do these look good? Did I miss anything? 2. Based on Footballz's feedback, we brainstormed an idea that the VP Bonus could be limited to non-spell damage (see the playtest hub thread for more details). I included that limitation in these cards, but I can easily change it back. If we go this route, I will change the VP section of the rules.
  13. @Footballzs That's not a bad idea. The limitation could apply to both sides to equal it out. By the way, how would Kiss of Death have affected your recent playtest? I assume the heroes would have won, since Hadrathus could have sacrificed himself to do that last point of damage, but would it still have come down to the wire?
  14. I was worried about how the victory points would affect The Streets of Khemi. I am also concerned about how they will affect The Trap. Here are some options: 1. Change The Streets of Khemi to make the hero spellcaster more powerful. Unfortunately, the best spells to use are from the King set, which we aren't using. Alternates include: a) Pestilential Swarm (which I think is WAY too powerful if carried by Hadrathus), and b) Kiss of Death (which might be climactic because Hadrathus would have to sacrifice himself to use it, but it is also pretty powerful with 3 red re-rollable dice.). 2. Change the Xuthals Crown to provide +1 spell damage. This would compensate for the OL VP armor bonus. However, if the OL doesn’t get the VP armor bonus, it might make it too easy for the heroes. 3. Leave it as it. Thoughts?

    We revamped the VP rewards. At 3:2, I am pretty sure it is +1 armor for both sides.
