  1. Thanks, I've followed what Monolith have done in the Conqueror campaign by including optional substitutions for those who want to use material from the expansions to add more flavour, but they're not at all needed to enjoy the campaign.
  2. CONAN - The Liberator "I had prepared myself to take the crown, not to hold it. In the old free days all I wanted was a sharp sword and a straight path to my enemies. Now no paths are straight and my sword is useless. When I overthrew Numedides, then I was the Liberator—now they spit at my shadow." - The Phoenix on the Sword CONAN - The Liberator is a fanmade solo/co-op mode campaign for Monolith's Conan, charting Conan's rise to power as King of Aquilonia. The six scenarios take Conan and his companions from the deadly streets of Tarantia, through the Dungeons of Sorrow and the depths of the Pictish Wilderness, to his uprising against the cruel King Nemedides. This campaign requires the Barbarian or King Pledge, and two sets of Modiphius Tiles; Forbidden Places & Pits of Horror and Perilous Ruins & Forgotten Cities (the same tile sets required for the Monolith Sourcebook campaign). Several scenarios also include optional substitutions that make use of other Conan expansions. December 2022 marks the 90th anniversary of the release of the first Conan story, The Phoenix on the Sword, in which a newly crowned King Conan looks to hold on to his throne. What better way to mark that anniversary than to set the Cimmerian on the throne yourself? Conan The Liberator is available in 2 formats: 1 - PDF for web viewing and home printing: CONAN_The Liberator - Full PDF.pdf 2 - 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. Below are step-by-step instructions on how to use Lulu, if you choose them as your print-on-demand service. CONAN_The Liberator - Cover.pdf CONAN_The Liberator - Interior.pdf A big thank you to everyone who helped playtest and develop ideas for this campaign. Crom doesn't care if you enjoy this campaign, but I do, so please leave any feedback here. - Barny "Zombocom" Skinner Hardcover 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 below are for the company Lulu, but you are free to use any print on demand company you choose. 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 CONAN - The Liberator. Enter a language and CATEGORY, which is required; why not choose Gaming? 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_The Liberator - Interior.pdf Wait for the file to upload and normalize. This can take a few minutes. 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. 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 HARDCOVER. Feel free to choose a different binding if you want. In the COVER FINISH section, choose GLOSSY or MATTE, your choice. Wait a moment for the PRINT COST to load. 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_The Liberator - Cover.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. 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 will vary depending where you are located. There are almost always discount codes of at least 15% available online - do a quick search! Feel free to print a copy for yourself or your friends, but DO NOT PRINT COPIES FOR SALE. Note: The hardback book you receive from Lulu will not be perfect. There might be alignment issues with the binding, scratches, the interior margins might be tight, and the endsheets will be a boring white.
  3. The official templates have never been published. Your best bet is the online editor then using Adobe Acrobat to edit the PDFs to replace images etc.
  4. Haha, crap, wish I'd noticed before I got mine printed!
  5. You pretty much need to buy the PDF versions of the tiles, extract the images and manually set them in a PDF for the scenarios. No easy way, alas.
  6. My advice would be to not let perfect be the enemy of good - either use the Modiphius Tiles or the new Conqueror Temple map.
  7. Thanks. Mostly just overlaying textures, but I spent a while trying to get the light directions and shadows to line up better, makes it look a lot more realistic.
  8. Love the idea of this one, and I think it could be converted to a true solo mode pretty easily.
  9. Yeah, something like a line-of-sight blocking barricade would make it impossible to pull off. I've been really enjoying the campaign so far, and the Summoner is great fun. Can I Play With Madness felt very balanced, a great challenge and I loved the respawn mechanic. Blackbird and Beheaded were fun, but felt a bit easy to me, which may just be due to getting lucky finding the required items early. Blackbird felt more of a challenge, with a better time pressure, whereas Beheaded largely felt like there wasn't much pressure, I could just take my time to take everything out before taking on the Forest Demon. Felt like it needed a reinforcement mechanic to keep me on my toes. Haven't played the last two scenarios yet, I'll let you know my thoughts once I have.
  10. Took a few rerolls, but yes. Felt a bit cheap.
  11. Just played The Black Witch, and unless I've missed something, I think it's pretty easy to win on turn 1? Summoner starts with the Swamp Demon, which he moves to destroy the Ethereal Wall. Summon the Blackbird Horde, which has 8 movement, just enough to fly to the end zone and destroy the other Ethereal Wall. Then as there is line of sight from the starting zone to the Grey Man Ape's zone, everyone just throws everything at ranged attacks, getting him down to 1 health and winning the scenario. Have I made a mistake anywhere?
  12. Updated with corrected Pict Archers tile.
  13. Ah, my mistake, that should be pict archers with the reroll, I'll update it today. Agreed it's probably on the easy side at the moment, I figured I'd start that way then increase the difficulty.
  14. EDIT - Deleted - you can find the final version of this Scenario in CONAN - The Liberator.
