The French version of compendium II has been available for a while now. It’s the English version which is still to come.


Are you sure? Because there is only a French flag - and not the Union Jack as shown for Compendium T3!

Yes. The compendiums were put together by the French community and compendium II was finished some time ago. It’s the translation that is taking time. Compendium III consists of scenarios for Mythic Battles not Conan, so it appears that one has been translated already.

So there's a mistake on the philbertnet website? Because right now it indeed only has a pre-order option for what is listed as a French version of Compendium 2. Hopefully someone will clarify/confirm this soon.

So we will be able to buy the Compendium II in English soon? If so, where? I never got an email to order this even though I had bought the first one.

I hope some news come very soon. I'd love to buy all three compendia (missed #1 at KS, unfortunately), in printed English version. Probably I'll also buy PDF editions at philibertnet.com, just in case.

+1 for Compendium II news in English please. 

 

I guess now, that Monolith lost Conan license, Compedium II in English is not happening. At least not till 2020. They may publish it in PDF form, but they cannot do any physical Conan related products till the end of 2019.

I think that Monolith can still help publishing the fan-made Compendiums.  They aren’t ‘products’ that they are ‘selling’. They are just collecting money to offset printing and shipping costs. But I dunno...

The French version of the Compendium 4 is in the works (Mythic Battles and Batman, no Conan).

Is there a date for the English version of the Compendium 2?

To save on shipping I'm hoping to buy the English v2 and v3 at the same time so it sure would be nice to hear something about v2.  Really don't understand the silence on this.

I know I’d certainly love to get Compendium 2 in English. I think there are a few factors at play here.

Monolith is centered in the French gaming community, which is fairly insular. They are more than happy to sell games to anyone, but they are definitely catering primarily to French gamers in many ways. The French version of The Overlord site is very very active. This English site, is not very active at all in comparison (which is a bummer). I sometimes feel like this whole site exists just so that about 20 of us die hard English language fans can communicate with each other...

Another factor may very well be the issues Monolith ran into with shipping the previous Compendiums worldwide. They got a lot of hate and spite from a handful of malcontents who were (understandably) pissed off when they didn’t get their copies of the first Compendium - due to cheap and spotty shipping methods. Some people even called them cheaters and thieves!

Yet another issue, is the licensing beef that Monolith has run into with Cabinet regarding Conan, and the resulting question about when (and if) Monolith will ever provide new Conan material via KickStarter. 

Add all that to the fact that Monolith is a business, and needs to generate revenue to stay viable. Hence, their focus on other games. I think that an English translation of Compendium 2 is probably number 286 on their to-do list...

I'll say this, I intend to find out what's up with the compendiums. As far as I know it's close to finished. I edited it a long time ago. I think the team is just very busy at the moment. 

 

Also, there is no licensing beef with Cabinet. Our partnership is strong and things are moving ahead. Don't worry, just do your best to be patient, though I know it's been a long time. I have personally been working on free-for-the-community projects to keep the game alive in the meantime (more to come, thanks to our stalwart community members).

I look forward to the opportunity of getting both Compendium 2 and 3 in English when they are ready.I was a little sad to find out that there was no Conan v2 coming this year from Monolith ( maybe next year ? ),but at the same time,it will mean more funds being available for MB:Ragnarok when it drops onto KS.
