Reviews - What do customers think about Conan: The Scrolls Of Skelos (Conan Roleplaying Game RPG)?

Why can't every gaming book on magic and magical items be this good? All the rest are just stat blocks and creation rules for superfantasy nukes.
SUPER AWESOME  Aug 20, 2006
if you love dnd, you will love conan. the game is more violent, and you can still have hard core roleplaying too!!! it has a power point system for spells, and the type of spells are way differant than dnd, better. the game is set up to have no negative effects from game play by having a group of all soldiers or all scholars, the game is awesome like that holmes, buy it see you later G!
An amazing book of d20 Hyborian Age magic  Feb 7, 2006
(and, frankly, PRE-Hyborian Age magic). "The Scrolls of Skelos" is, on its face, a magic rules supplement for Mongoose's "Conan the Role Playing Game" (Conan RPG); additionaly, the Scrolls are an ancient, dreaded grimoire mentioned in Robert E. Howard's Conan stories, and this book describes those ancient scrolls (and others) in their game applications. The book adds several new paths of sorcery (an area about which I was unclear since I don't have the Conan RPG rules!), dazzling new feats, and descriptions of some of the greatest wizards and sorcerers of the Hyborian Age and the magic devices which help to make them so powerful. Ever wonder how to incorporate the Heart of Ahriman into a d20 campaign? "The Scrolls of Skelos" tells you how. Pictish magic, Acherontic magic, Stygian and Vendhyan magic -- it's all in here.

"The Scrolls of Skelos" is intended for use with the Conan RPG, but any good GM should be able to find plenty of inspiration in it for (mostly NPC) magic. Magic in the Hyborian Age is frequently tied to "evil" acts, and acts of mind-shattering cosmic horror, so the average good or neutral PC won't find much of use in "The Scrolls of Skelos," but sometimes it is necessary to "fight fire with fire" as Xaltotun learned in "The Hour of the Dragon" when the aforesaid "Heart of Ahriman" wound up in the hands of a *good* priest, and not a Stygian or Anacreontic necromancer. Conan fans will know whereof I speak.

I give "The Scrolls of Skelos" 5 stars and wish that I could afford the main rule book, too! (The revised one, please, not the one with all the typos!)
