Cary Nord, world famous Conan artist, joins Conan RPG!

Posted by Chris Birch, Modiphius (Creator)
Are you ready? Yes you read that right and you heard it here first! The incredible Cary Nord has agreed to paint a cover for Robert E. Howard's Conan roleplaying game

Cary Nord is an Eisner Award-winning artist whose work on Conan for Dark Horse helped redefine how the Cimmerian is portrayed in the 21st century. He has worked on various titles for both Marvel and DC including Daredevil, X-Men, Wolverine, and Superman and he is currently the artist for Valiant's acclaimed X-O Manowar series.

We're incredibly excited that Cary has joined the team, Jeff Shanks is already working with him to decide which of the Conan supplements he'll be painting and a suitable epic scene. We still have more artists to announce and this is already a groundbreaking line-up for the roleplaying games industry. Please help share this news, as it will be a real draw for a lot of people out there. 

More Playtest Adventure! Backer David Thomas wanted more adventure so he kindly wrote an extension to the adventure in the Quickplay that's free to download on DriveThruRPG. You might also want to join the Google Plus community. Thanks David!

Benn Beaton our systems developer helped tweak the adventure 'Thunders Bounty' to make sure it uses the right rules and we thought we'd let you know so you can enjoy it too! Please note this is a backer produced adventure and has not been edited. Use it at your risk! ;-)

      @Chris - Thanks for the shout out and link! Very kind. :)
      (I hope I credited Benn's name correctly in the adventure! I've seen two versions!)

      Nice! The only bigger name they could have gotten is Barry Windsor-Smith.
