Modiphius Entertainment has announced a licensing deal with Conan Properties to produce Robert E. Howard’s Conan-Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, a new roleplaying game launching in August.

A Kickstarter is planned for the summer to fund a larger range of roleplaying supplements, campaigns, and accessories to follow the core book.  The Kickstarter will include a retailer level, Modiphius’ Chris Birth told ICv2, but the core rulebook and first campaign book will be available to retail in August regardless of the timing of the Kickstarter.

The new savage pulp adventure game is designed by Timothy Brown (Dark Sun D&D Campaign Setting), Robert E. Howard scholar Jeffrey Shanks, Jason Durall (Song of Ice & Fire and Serenity RPGs) and Chris Lites (Savage Worlds) among others.  The game will utilize the 2D20 game system from Mutant Chronicles.  Art has been commissioned by Conan artist Sanjulian (Conan Ace paperbacks, Vampirella) and Carl Critchlow (Batman/Judge Dredd).  Additional art will be provided by Mark Schultz (The Coming of Conan, Prince Valiant), Tim Truman (Dark Horse Conan, Jonah Hex), Phroilan Gardner (Age of Conan, World of Warcraft), Alex Horley (Heavy Metal, Magic: The Gathering) and more.

Modiphius is planning supplements tied to the Conan board game currently being Kickstarted by new publisher Monolith Board Games, LLC.

Modiphius will also produce floorplan tile sets to incorporate Conan miniatures into RPG play.

Mongoose Publishing produced a licensed Conan d20/OGL RPG, Conan: The Roleplaying Game, designed by Ian Sturrock, beginning in 2004 (see "Mongoose To Publish 'Conan RPG'").  Mongoose published the game until 2010, supporting the property with a new edition in 2007 and multiple supplements (see "New 'Judge Dredd' RPG & Miniatures Games").

There will be two Conan board games in the market in 2015: Ares Games’ relaunched The Age of Conan and its new supplement (see "'Age of Conan: Adventures in Hyboria' Details"), and Monolith Games’ Conan, a $2 million Kickstarter with trade release planned for November.
