Mutant Year Zero Team To Collaborate on Conan Exiles Sourcebook!

Posted by Chris Birch, Modiphius (Creator)

Modiphius & Funcom have announced CONAN EXILES a new cross-over sourcebook for the Conan tabletop roleplaying game. 

This tie-in sourcebook adapts areas and gameplay from CONAN EXILES to Modiphius’ 2d20 roleplaying game; Robert E. Howard's Conan: Adventures In An Age Undreamed Of. CONAN EXILES is Funcom’s new open-world survival computer game, which starts early access the summer of 2016.

What's really exciting is we're going to be developing this in partnership with Funcom's CONAN EXILES team and Free League Publishing who are the designers of the Ennie Award winning Mutant: Year Zero! This sourcebook adapts the critically-acclaimed community-development system from Mutant: Year Zero for the Hyborian Age. This is going to let your players grow a community from the ground up!

In the CONAN EXILES sourcebook, the heroes face a brutal and extreme challenge: survival in an isolated and arid land, attempting to find food, water and shelter, before building a community that might endure against the threat of neighbouring kingdoms. 

The Exiled Lands are a desolate region shrouded in mystery where players must ready themselves and their fledgling community against repeated attack. To survive, they will need to manage a small population, forge alliances, build defences, gather resources, craft weapons, train their forces, weather deadly sandstorms, battle dangerous beasts and adventure forth into the untamed wilderness of the Exiled Lands surrounding them. 

Will those they meet become staunch allies or steadfast enemies? As players' communities become established they will march forth into battle and wage war against their rivals as they fight to dominate the Exiled Lands. 

CONAN EXILES promises to be one of the sternest survival challenges facing players, a struggle worthy of the great barbarian himself and this will be beautifully illustrated with concept art and screenshots from the CONAN EXILES video game.

We are confirming CONAN EXILES as a release for 2017 and therefore it will be part of the PDF Subscription, it will also be a later Stretch Goal once the core supplements have been unlocked!

      @Johannes yes 2d20 with the MYZ community rules integrated.

    2. RDP

      FANTASTIC! I own MYZ and love their community building aspects and you're bringing that piece to Conan Exiles! You weren't kidding on the great news this week Chris!

    3. Douglas Justice on

      This is exactly what I'm looking for! I was planning a 5e campaign focusing on surviving the elements and lack of food and water while traversing a desert.

      Looks like I can do this with Conan instead :)

    4. Johannes 'Waldgeist' Rebhan on

      The cross over will use 2d20 instead of the Mutant: Year Zero rule set (which reads really well)?

    5. Claus Bornich on

      By Crom! So much Conan goodness and MYZ is a totally awsome game and the community building aspect is one of the parts I love the most about it. I would also warmly welcome some variant of the Zone exploration mechanic without GM-prep that MYZ uses. Apart from the subscription, is there any way to pledge for this? In particular for a printed copy. Maybe worth doing a second kickstarter just for this? I'd back it.

    6. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on

      @Johannes - we do include them but we use them to fill the gap in failed payments first, then announce the difference. It's usually enough to unlock another book :-)

      @Ron - yes we love MYZ and this is going to be an incredible version!

    7. Ron Niabati on

      @ Modiphius: A survival sourcebook developed by Free League Publishing who designed Mutant: Year Zero is one of the smartest decisions you guys have made. And as you've made extremely wise choices so far, this is saying something... THEY ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

    8. Cornelius, Wanderer of the Ringtail Fox on

      @Johannes - The paypal pledges are at the moment excluded. After the kickstarter we will get an update which states how much money came via paypall and if it has effect on reaching a stretch goal.

    9. Johannes 'Waldgeist' Rebhan on

      Do you have an overview on how much you got through PayPal pledges? Or are they excluded from the unlocking chart?

    10. Cornelius, Wanderer of the Ringtail Fox on

      @David - funds that come via paypal and pledgemanager (minus shipping costs) will count for reaching new stretch goals.

    11. David Thomas on

      Crom's Devils! I can't wait for Conan Exiles, and now I can't wait for this supplement! Community building sounds amazing!

      @Chris - will late pledges add new stretch goals? (Increasing Yimsha value even more)

    12. Chris Birch, Modiphius 7-time creator on

      Yes don't worry - and looks like Monolith are announcing us tonight - yes late pledges still contribute!

    13. Kickbacker

      This is awesome. I wish Modiphius would have released some of these cool announcements earlier in the campaign. There are only a few days left to disseminate this information around.
      I suppose that they'll still have their Pay Pal open for additional pledges after the KS clock runs down. From what I understand, those late pledges will still contribute to unlocking stretch goals.
      We just need to reveal as many stretch goals as possible over the next few days.
