No update on Fantasy Grounds yet.
Any word on Fantasy Grounds, for playing Conan 2d20? I know I had inquired in November but curious on it's status. Dying to get this game online in Fantasy Grounds!
@RVH - We don't have a particular plan for high-res maps, though the ones we're using in the books are at 300 dpi, the same as the art and regular content. I'll discuss with Chris whether we'll want to do a followup map pack once the regional sourcebooks are wrapped up.
@JaFO - I think it's the end of Wave 3, which is already in progress.
Is wave 2 the last one before the all-in-ones get shipped ?
I've been working my way through the books, and I have a request -- there is really some beautiful interior cartography in the sourcebooks, close-up maps of the various nations depicted there, but they aren't super high-res. Is it possible to get higher-res versions of those maps? I kind of want to print them out to use as player aids.
@Morgan - yes we're considering a beautiful Conan notebook too :-)
@Nuroch - I'm still here :-) In fact we have some great news for Conan fans...

All sounds fabulous, and thank you as always for the timely and cordial response!
Hi Nuroch - Work is developing apace on all of Wave 2. We're putting PIRATE into layout this week, so bear with us. The next book you'll be seeing pieces of is RUINS, then more of the Monolith crossover.
With Chris piloting the John Carter ship right now are there any updates on Conan the Pirate to be has over here?
Hello Modiphius crew. It has been awesome reading through the Wave 1 books! These are definitely some of my favorite rpg products in nearly 30 years of playing and collecting.
Finally recieved the last books of my wave one, very happy with it ( the book of skelos is definetely my favorite ).
I want to thank modiphius for their good customer support ( thanks lloyd! )
Any updates on Fantasy Grounds development?
@Chris Birth or @Chris Lite
I just saw on your John Carter kickstarter the beautiful "Prince of Helium Notebook". Please och please couldn´t you do exactly the same for Conan? Im willing to toss in an additional £10-20 each for it! Dang, that would be sooooo fitting for Conan! :)
@Chris You can always contact Lloyd (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see about changing your shipping preferences.
I realize it was called out clearly in pledgemanager, but any chance of changing to split shipments after the fact? My past self was much more patient.
@Ben The GM Screen was shipped with a 28-page full color softcover booklet with a brown cover bearing the Phoenix emblem. It would be hard to overlook. If your GM Screen wasn't packaged with one, you should get in touch with the fine folks at Modiphius customer service (email@example.com).
Has the GM toolkit been delivered yet? I have the screen, and a bit of cardboard that says GM toolkit, but no actual booklet? Possibly something I've mislaid, but just wanted to check if it even exists in the first instance?!
Thanks Jason, that is very encouraging.
@Seth I've forwarded your message over to the support folk at Modiphius. Hope this resolves issues.
@Sid The adventure bundle is going into development once we get a few books to the printer. Due to the lead time involved for print products, we're prioritizing the books backers paid for over the "free" extras. This is also true of the social media character bundle.
I suspect there will be another adventure anthology, and we're discussing whether we want to pursue the option of standalone adventures, perhaps as .pdf-only releases with an eventual collection. Sales of JEWELED THRONES will help guide that decision.
@ Jason Thanks!
Any update on the Blessings of Mitra pdf adventure bundle? Other than the projected campaign books (Waves Stained Crimson etc) will there be any further scenario releases? My group has now played everything in the core book, JTotE, the quickstarts, and the Conan the Thief tie-in pdf. Have we missed anything?
I am experiencing an odd issue. The PledgeManager refuses to recognize either of the two email addresses I backed with (I did a 2nd order with a 2nd email after my original order arrived). When I click "forgot password" it states that it does not recognize either of my email addresses, but I am 100% certain they are correct because I have the confirmation and order emails still in my folders at home.
I reached out to Lloyd a month or two ago but I still haven't received my 2nd order. I live in Nevada, US.
Anyone else have trouble with Pledgemanager not recognizing your email?
Conan was handled through Pledge Manager, NOT BackerKit. Log into pledgemanager.com with the email you provided, so see what your mail settings and shipment preferences are.
We've done 107 updates and many, many additional mailings, so it may be that you have notifications turned off.
Here is the list of items, grouped by Waves: https://www.modiphius.com/conan-rpg-product-line.html
Depending on what items and shipping preference you picked, your stuff will be shipped when it's all done. We've all materials already for backers whose stuff all fell in Wave 1, and broke up the Wave 1 shipments to get backers materials early.
Lloyd (firstname.lastname@example.org) should be able to get you sorted out if there are any issues with your pledge.
Hope this helps!
You would want to talk to lloyd @modiphius.com. you could also log into paypal and the Conan button will show you what you've ordered.
So, I've been trying to follow this, I haven't received any emails/tracking stuff, and honestly it is very confusing to me which "wave" I'm in. It has been so long since i did the backer kit that I can't honestly remember what I'm getting anymore! Is there someone I can get a hold of to figure all this out? Thanks! Brian
@ Jason Durall: thanks for the answer.
Drawlab* and going*
( damn you autocorrect. Coing is french for quince...)
@ Jason Durall: thanks for the drawlad coin suggestion. I'm coing to order one medieval set for fortune .
Can someone remind me where I can go to download the hyborian age map?
@JEVR We've only got so much bandwidth, and the current focus for the art director is on getting new art briefs and solicitations written and sent out for artwork that needs to be created, vs. work that's already done (in the case of the Monolith artwork).
@Jason I'm familiar with the Shire Post Mint ones, but the price makes them prohibitive for my needs. I like having a wide variety of cultures and coinage styles represented for the Fortune points, and the Drawlab ones hit the spot for me.
@Jason @Joris - Shire Post Mint makes licensed Conan the Barbarian coins. I have some, they are expensive but very nice. The “Crom Skull Set” and “Stygian Scroll Set” would work well as Fortune and Doom tokens.
@Joris For Momentum I use the Fortune tokens. They have a Mitra symbol and it makes more sense to me that the two equivalent currencies are stones.
For Fortune I use an assortment of "ancient" and fantasy coins from Drawlab Entertainment. Coins = Fortune also seems more intuitive.
I got some big exotic-looking coins from Amazon (UK). They were half the price when I got them, though. They are big, meaty, and a good fit, I think.
Hey guys & gals, something a bit different: what have you been using to track Momentum? I was thinking of buying a set of fantasy-esque coins, but I'm curious to see what everyone else is doing. :)
@Bob, check under the corebook folder.
@Ryan send an email to :email@example.com and you will get help.
How can I tell if I asked for one shipment or multiple? I don't remember what I chose and I don't see it on the Pledge Manager page. Now I'm not if I should be getting a package now or not.
Am I missing something? I thought Pirate was supposed to be uploaded today? Not showing up on my page.
No progress in the Monolith tie-in since last update? I understand it is not the next line, but if the next step is to assemble a list of art requests for Monolith, perhaps it doesn't need to be delayed.
Damn you, autocorrect! It's firstname.lastname@example.org
@Justin Please email Lloyd (email@example.com) with your backer info. He can track down your package.
So.. could I find an update as to when I can expect the Conqueror's Collection in Canada? There seems to be images popping up all over the globe of people reciving various materials from the game. My flgs even has books and dice in stock now.

@Raymond You could also send feedback directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
