Wow! Some people really get to the bottom of things!
Members of the Cross Plains Library RPG gaming group are playing Conan.. right under the front porch of Robert E. Howard's family house. If that ain't cool...

A few years ago, the RPG game launched on Kickstarter by Modiphius was playtested by a group of gamers in Robert E. Howard's dining room. This game was once again played by a group of gamers in the Cross Plains Public Library. These past days, a smaller faction of this Cross Plains Library RPG gaming group relocated to the front porch of the Howard House to play the Monolith's boardgame.

Hum. The Cross Plains Public Library being, according to Google, the Library where REH's manuscripts are kept, in the town where REH lived most of his life and died.

 

I didn't know that. Thanks for clarifying! :biggrin:

Yes you are right, Robert E. Howard lived most of his life in Cross Plains (Texas), and his family house is now a museum. You still can visit the room of REH, where he was writing his novels.

I really need check out this museum as I live right down the road in Weatherford, TX. I've been in TX my whole life, but never knew he was from this area until I came across the Conan board game. It's interesting how we are exposed to history that's so close to home.
