Hoard of Yezdigerd & Secrets of Yishma Pledges - as well as the option to swap the Conqueror's Edition for three Player's Guides we have now come up with the option to swap it instead for a bundle of dice. 16 Phoenix d20's, 12 Combat d6, 5 Hit Location Dice! This gives as a basic, 5 d20's to the GM, 2d20's per player for 4 players plus 3 extra d20's in the middle of the table for people to roll up to 5d20. Enough combat dice for the GM and Player's to share and a Hit Location dice each. For Secrets of Mount Yishma this will give enough dice for 5 players and a GM to share.

The Dwellers Below (by Nathaniel Torson) takes the heroes beneath the streets of a city immediately after an earthquake, where the earth’s fury has awakened something far more terrible than any mere tremor. Written by Nathaniel Torson, author of Barbarians of the Aftermath, and many products for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space.
Frost on the Vilayet (by Helena Nash) puts the heroes on a ship in the Vilayet Sea, where a mysterious clue hinting at unimaginable wealth leads them to a long-forgotten temple and a now-awakened curse. Written by Helena Nash, writer for 7TV.
Vultures Over Akbitana (by Jason Durall). As night falls, as the last survivors of a fierce battle, the heroes must contend with the Vultures Over Akbitana, and much worse... ghoulish creatures drawn by the scent of carnage. Pushed to their limits, can they outlast this ghastly siege and see the break of dawn? Written by Jason Durall, author of Lords of Gossamer & Shadow, Basic Roleplaying, Assault on the Mountains of Madness, and contributor to Serenity, A Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galactica, The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying, Silver Age Sentinels, and others.
In The City Beneath the Sands (by Kevin Ross) The heroes survive a desert sandstorm, but just barely, finding that their only hope of salvation might be in a mysterious, apparently-deserted city off in the distance. But what lies below it? Written by industry veteran Kevin Ross, writer, editor, and contributor to Cthulhu by Gaslight, Dead Reckonings, Escape from Innsmouth, H.P. Lovecraft’s Kingsport, Dwellers in Shadow, New Tales of the Miskatonic Valley, Call of Cthulhu Investigator’s Companion, The Dreaming Stone, and more.
Into the Darkness (by Elle Goff) sends the heroes into the Pictish Wilderness in search of a merchant’s missing daughter, where they must content with angry Picts and the loathsome god they worship. Written by Elle Goff.
Lost in the steppes (by Helena Nash), the heroes must content with the Devils Under Green Stars, inhabitants of a lost city wracked with a battle for supremacy. Written by Helena Nash.
The Thousand Eyes of Aumag-Bel (by Richard August) sends the players into a city-within-a-city, a hidden metropolis filled with beggar-slaves, all in thrall to the mysterious sorcerer known as Aumag-Bel. Written by Richard August, contributor to Small Mercy and Codex Infernus.
The Ghost of Thunder River (by Jason Durall) allows the players to experience a Pictish uprising from both sides, as a group of Pict warriors fighting the incursion of Aquilonian invaders, and as scouts and mercenaries hired to defend against the Picts. Written by Jason Durall.
The Red Pit (by Lou Agresta) was used as an early playtest for Conan, and it has been updated to the current version of the rules, expanded beyond the scope of the initial playtest. Written by Lou Agresta, editor, developer, and designer of Razor Coast and Heart of the Razor.
