  1. Yeah, I was going to say that moving the demon/snake into Conan's path would slow him down. The debris would also help, but Conan has a lot of movement points to spare, so I would probably start with the snake. The cool thing about this scenario is playing it again and trying a different strategy. Or swapping sides.
  2. Roolz is correct, Thotmekri /Xaltotun can activate, he just can't move. Demetrio, can describe the Hero and Overlord actions for turns 1 and 2 that enabled Conan to reach Thotmekri /Xaltotun so quickly?
  3. Eventually there will be a Lulu version, but it will be a while. The difficulty is that there is a lot of custom print stuff besides the booklet (hero sheets and cards). I want everything to be professional quality. I found a Lulu-style printer for the cards, but not for the hero sheets.
  4. Possibly, but I would need to reformat it. I really love this campaign.
  5. The Burning Heart of Ahriman "Know, O Prince, that ancient gods rose and fell like the waves. Once such god, Ahriman, summoned all manner of creatures who tormented mankind in ways no longer spoken. As Ahriman’s power waned, these creatures were hunted near extinction, for revenge ever burns in the heart of mankind." The Burning Heart of Ahriman is a 6 scenario solo/coop campaign. These products required to play the content of this book: Conan Core Game Conan the Conqueror Mythic Battles Pantheon Mythic Battles Corinthia Mythic Battles Poseidon (game board and ships only) Mythic Battles Hephaestus (game board only) Mythic Battles Thermopylae (game board only) This is available in three formats: 1. Web Version - this is a single PDF file that you can use digitally. The images have been compressed.CONAN_Burning_Heart_of_Ahriman_Web.pdf 2. Self Print - this is a single PDF file that you can print at home or your local print shop. CONAN_Burning_Heart_of_Ahriman_Print.pdf 3. Paperback Edition - this is two PDF files, one for the cover and the second for the interior content that you can send to a print-on-demand service for a paperback book. I will also provide step-by-step instructions on how to use Lulu, if you choose them as your print-on-demand service. CONAN_Burning_Heart_of_Ahriman_Cover_Lulu.pdf CONAN_Burning_Heart_of_Ahriman_Interior_Lulu.pdf Paperback Printing Instructions for Lulu Since this is a free, fan-made book, I am not morally or legally allowed to set up a print on demand distribution. Which means you will need to set up an account with a print on demand company and upload files for printing (for personal use only). The directions I list below are for the company Lulu, but you are free to use any print on demand company you choose. Note: Some images are low res, and others (like the ships) are scans of cardboard product. The print version will not be as high quality as a professional book, and some images display a box around them. If this bothers you, I recommend not printing the book and playing with the digital version instead. Go to lulu.com and create an account. Under the CREATE tab, click the PRINT BOOKS option. Click the button START YOUR PRINT BOOK Enter your login credentials In the START YOUR PROJECT section, choose PRINT BOOK In the SELECT YOUR GOAL section, choose PRINT YOUR BOOK. (Do NOT select Publish your book for sale on Amazon. You will get sued. 🙂 ) In the BOOK DETAILS section, enter a project title of your choice. I recommend The Burning Heart of Ahriman. Enter a language and CATEGORY, which is required.. Click the DESIGN YOUR PROJECT button at the bottom of the page to proceed to the Design page In the INTERIOR FILE UPLOAD section, upload the file named “CONAN_Burning_Heart_of_Ahriman_Interior_Lulu.pdf” Wait for the file to upload and normalize. This can take a few minutes. Be patient and get yourself a cold beverage. When the upload finishes, you will see some warnings. Like most warnings in life, feel free to ignore these. In the BOOK SPECIFICATIONS section, the BOOK SIZE AND PAGE COUNT should already be pre-filled at A4 and 20 pages, respectively. In the INTERIOR COLOR section, choose COLOR PREMIUM for the best quality color. In the PAPER TYPE section, choose 80# COATED WHITE for the best paper quality. In the BOOK BINDING section, choose SADDLE STICHED. Feel free to choose a different binding if that floats your boat. In the COVER FINISH section, choose GLOSSY (because who doesn’t like glossy over Matte, right?) Wait a moment for the PRINT COST to load. For me it is $7.22. This is a printing fee for Lulu, and I do not receive a penny of this, nor does Monolith. In the DESIGN YOUR COVER section, make sure the UPLOAD COVER FILE option is selected. Upload the file named “CONAN_Burning_Heart_of_Ahriman_Cover_Lulu.pdf” After a minute, the PREVIEW will load. This preview will give you a basic idea of what the book will be like, but it is just a preview and not super-high quality. When you are ready, click the REVIEW BOOK link at the bottom. This brings you to a page where you can review the final specifications. Click the checkbox next to CONFIRM BOOK SPECIFICATIONS AND FILES Click the ADD TO CART button when it becomes enabled Click the CART icon at the top of the page and make the purchase. The shipping for me was around $5.00, but of course that will vary depending where you are located. (Also keep an eye out for discount codes on the home page.) Feel free to print a copy for yourself or your friends, but DO NOT PRINT COPIES FOR SALE. Note: The book I received from Lulu was not perfect. There was an alignment issue with the binding, there was a scratch on the back cover, the interior margins were tight, and the endsheets were a boring white. Overall, however, I am highly pleased.
  6. So we are on the same page: Sacrifice - When a friendly character in this character’s area is attacked, before dice are rolled, this character may choose to be attacked instead. This character cannot Guard for that defense. Circular Strike - When this character kills an enemy character with a 2-handed Melee Attack, another enemy character in the same area suffers the excess damage from the attack (if that character is killed, repeat this process). Is your friend is saying that a) the Sacrifice skill invalidates Circular Strike, or b) that the Sacrifice skill can be used to redirect the excess damage from a Circular Strike over and over until there are no more units with Sacrifice? Thematically, it makes sense too. Think of it like a pellet gun (regular attack) versus a 50 caliber rifle (circular strike).
  7. I agree with Roolz on this. Sacrifice is basically a meat shield. A big circular swing can slice through the meat shield AND the target (and anything else nearby if the swing is big enough).
  8. Tales of the North Special Edition "The North?” rumbled the Red-Haired Woman, seated across from a soft faced lad. She slowly lowered the mug of ale at her lips until it thunked on the table. When she continued menace edged her voice. “Aye, I am of the North. What’s it to you?" Many months ago the Nemedian Chroniclers recruited a group of hardy scribes from all across the land. These scribes were tasked to travel into far reaches of Nordheim in search of wondrous tales and treasures. Instead, the few who returned, frost bitten and mad, in their moments of fevered consciousness raved of more harrowing encounters. Tales of ice and blood. Haunted groves and ravenous beasts. Fierce women and desperate men. Tales of frost blasted forests. Circling crows and sharp swords. Sorcerous beauties and murderous savages. Tales of the North... Tales of the North Special Edition is a collection of fan-made scenarios for both Adventure Mode and Solo/Co-op. Six authors deliver 17 scenarios focused primarily on the Nordheim expansion for both Adventure mode and Solo/Co-op mode. See the table of contents for full requirements. We are providing this special edition in three formats: 1. Web Version - this is a single PDF file that you can use digitally. The images have been compressed. CONAN_Tales_of_the_North_Web.pdf 2. Self Print - this is a single PDF file that you can print at home or your local print shop. CONAN_Tales_of_the_North_Self_Print.pdf 3. Hardcover Edition - this is two PDF files, one for the cover and the second for the interior content that you can send to a print-on-demand service for a hardback book. I will also provide step-by-step instructions on how to use Lulu, if you choose them as your print-on-demand service.

  9. Doh! Clearing my cache did it! Thanks.
  10. FYI - For this new version, the search/filter menu for the Encyclopedia is completely transparent and unusable on my Chrome browser on Android,.
  11. Thanks for your continued work on this! I love this app and use it all the time.
  12. FYI - Those aren't expansions. Those people are selling individual pieces from the kickstarter stretch goals. Like Seaorgrudy said, get the King pledge (which contains all the stretch goals) if you can, or the Barbarian pledge (which contains most of the stretch goals) instead of buying them piecemeal. Board Game Geek has a good list of Conan expansions here: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/160010/conan/expansions?pageid=1
  13. Hey Nesh-Shogta, what do you think about this for the cover for a hardback book version? It has to be one page, because the endsheets are Lulu's default white. Also, since the book is thin, the spine is on the cover, but I was under the impression that you wanted it that way. SOD_front_back_cover_hardback.pdf
