Hi everyone first of all here's some art of Kordava on the Zingaran coastline by Giorgio Baroni. Below there's more of Jose Esteras' inspirational adventure tiles for the Conan RPG Kickstarter!

Shipping Schedule. The first wave of books and accessories will be ready to ship in July, then a second wave in December and a final wave in March. Here is an estimate on what items will be ready to ship when to help you decide if you will want one or more shipments. We will update this list as the Stretch Goals confirm and reveal books.

Tile Art - Jose Esteras is the king of tiles and is creating some beautiful adventure encounters for us. On the pirate theme lets look at the tiles that make up this freighter (which will be part of a later set). As you can see you'll be able to make up different sizes of ships for your adventures.

Or what about this windswept broken stone bridge, the only connection to a mysterious ruin or lonely temple? What fiends will block your path or chase you across? Again lose the ruined middle section and you have a normal bridge... or is it?!

 What about this lonely path through some ancient stones... this is just part of a much larger environment. We're creating epic scenes for you to play out special encounters, or use our cunning connecting tiles to let your characters experience larger scenes. 

Remember you can grab all four planned sets of the PDF tiles for just £30 (about $44) - that's 32 large tiles and 32 medium tiles (and we may unlock more additions to these so the value will just get better. We have confirmed we're making all of these in PDF regardless of whether they are unlocked as print sets. The tiles will have both hex and squared grids that you can turn on, or our normal printed movement areas which are similar to the Monolith boardgames tiles.

      @Asgo - we're finishing the tile graphics at the moment but I'll try to get a sample done to show off later this week

    2. Asgo

      @chris, would it be possible to see an example tile (something with relate-able scale, e.g. the shot from the forbidden places set from update #10) with the printed movement zones, just to get the feel for it in terms of visuals and distribution.

    3. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on

      @J.C.L - the PDF's will be sent out as they are finished, so you'll get a constant stream of pdf's through the year.

      @Tenebrae - yes there is a bestiary in the core book - plenty to keep your heroes busy.

      @SnakeDr - well it's the last of the core supplements so will come towards the end.

      Stunning art indeed! Sounds great with the shipping waves as well! :)

    5. Chuck Dee

      Conan the King is on your shipping schedule - but I haven't seen the stretch goal for that yet. Is it coming soon? (I've been waiting for that one)

    6. Tenebrae on

      I hope there is a Beastiary in the core book, since the Beasts of the Hyborian Age Sourcebook doesn't come out till December. I mean the heroes can suffice on servants of Set until then.

    7. The JollyGM on


      Will the wave 2 and 3 PDF versions also follow suit to the same schedule as the hard copies? Or will the PDFs be available the same time as wave 1?

    8. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on

      Hi yes there's a collection option from us, convention pickups are a bonus (in case for some reason we don't make it)

      Chris- is there an option to collect our shipments from you in London or at Cons with a Modiphius stand? Many thanks, Steve.

      @Starglyte - haha yes it's the new name for the southern sourcebook. These are all still draft names but we wanted to bring those two in line with the others

    11. Starglyte on

      Is Conan the Adventurer sourcebook a new name for the southern sourcebook? Either way, I now have the cartoon series theme song stuck in my head.

    12. Jason Brown

      Exactly what I was after thanks!

    13. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on

      @David yes that's correct!

    14. David Thomas on

      Wow, gorgeous art!
      Mount Yimsha gets the tiles printed regardless, correct?

      Can't wait to see the card sets.
