THE BOOK OF SKELOS! Jim Hague, part of the writing team on the Book of Skelos, the next book to be unlocked, had this to say over on the RPG.net discussion:
One of the very first things we're going to introduce to readers is the elephant in the room - the many faces of Skelos, the eponymous author of the Book.
Alcemides, a noted scholar in the Hyborian Age, believes that Skelos may have be - or be - an Atlantean survivor of the Cataclysm...yet that alone does not illuminate the withered sorcerer's true origins. Could he have learned the dark arts at the feet of Yag-Kosha's people, as told in Tower of the Elephant? Was he one of the shadowy priests of lost Acheron? A serpent-man passing as human? There are even rumors that Skelos was not born in the Hyborian Age or even its cataclysmic past, but may be a traveler from some distant future epoch, thrown back through time and blending modern knowledge with ancient secrets.
What is definitively known is this: whatever Skelos' origin, the Book that bears its name contains fearsome secrets, unspeakable knowledge, and the very history of an age undreamed of. Those that seek to unlock its secrets are well-advised to proceed with caution, for the text is not for the weak-willed, let they be consumed by the very forces they seek to master.
FORTUNE STONES. We'll be showing off examples of these and the Doom tokens in the coming week but if you want to add an extra set of Fortune Stones use the same price as the Doom Stones - £20. We'll update the Dice & Tokens Add On on monday.
BEASTS OF THE HYBORIAN AGE. When we unlocked Conan the Mercenary we revealed this next book. The core rulebook presents beasts, undead, demons, and supernatural horrors enough to overcome even the mightiest of heroes, but this sourcebook presents even more monstrous foes for gamemasters wishing additional challenges! Drawn from the whole of the history described in “The Hyborian Age” essay this catalogue also links Robert E. Howard’s lost prehistories with the dark cosmology of his good friend and fellow writer, H.P. Lovecraft. Full-color hardcover, 112 pages.
Here's the temporary cover by the incredible Simon Bisley - this is from a recent cover he did but he's going to be painting a classic for us!
Finally, I'd like to ask what pledge you would most like to see us create? Post in the comments please!
