For now, you can buy the RPG Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed of the core rules on Amazon or a PDF from DriveThruRPG, but the license will end on the 31st of Dec. The deadline for the shutdown is the 30th of June, 2023.
What’s happening? Modiphius has published twenty books, but now Heroic Signatures, who granted the license and were once known as Cabinet Entertainment, has moved the rights.
The new publisher in Monolith. Monolith has previously published a Conan board game and will be bringing that back with the new license deal. After the board game is out, Monolith will publish an all-new Conan RPG.
Chris Birch, Chief Creative Officer of Modiphius, said;
When we first started exploring Robert E. Howard’s world of Conan, little did we imagine the full expanse of what was to come. It’s been an incredible journey working with top Conan scholars, talented writers and artists who gave their all to dig deep into the Conan stories and bring them to life in a truly authentic way.
Now with twenty beautiful hardback books to our name and numerous beautiful accessories, we are ready to call time on our journeys across Hyboria. We’ve reached the point where we feel like we have done justice to REH’s words, delivered some incredible Conan swords & sorcery gaming, and reached the ends of the Hyborian world in every direction we could imagine. It’s time to pass on the mantle to new hands who can tell a new story in the Hyborian age!”
Matthew John, Conan Board Game Developer for Monolith, added;
For 8 years now, Conan, Heroic Signatures and Monolith have been treading the lands of Robert E. Howard’s Hyborian Age, finding grand inspiration for our products. Our board game, which rallied tens of thousands of players, was soon joined by a great role-playing game, thanks to Modiphius, who did a fantastic job diving deep into this exciting setting. As fans, we’ll be forever grateful to Modiphius for their work and our collaborations on Conan.”
Monolith hasn’t put a timeline on their new Conan RPG, but the board game will likely go through Kickstarter first.
