age-of-conanThe kingdoms of Hyperborea, Aquilonia, Turan, and Stygia compete for the support of Conan the Cimmerian as players guide the barbarian on a series of adventures in this new board game by Fantasy Flight. Though success of the board game doesn’t look like it will get much help from the Age of Conan MMORPG, I’m still excited to give it a try.

Know, O Prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars… Hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.
