ASSH - Conan 'Verse

My campaign could use another player or two. We are transitioning from a face-to-face game in Chicago to an online one, probably using Roll20.

The setting is the Conan-verse, probably influenced as much by the gonzo Marvel comic as Howard's stories. 150 years after Conan and maybe a if those comics were post-code ... meaning lots of gore and sexuality ...

Mesopotamian mythology, old D&D modules, Lovecraft naturally, also inform the setting. Trying to run this as a sandbox with no set overplot so the campaign can really go anywhere. Big into role immersion, role-playing, and I try to keep everyone "in the characters heads" during play.

We just converted to AS&SH from Dungeon World, using a few stray rules from that system and also OSRIC. The campaign presently has the player characters in Zamboula getting involved in the intrigues there. PM me if this sounds like your cup of tea.

Shout out to under_score for the work on the ASSH Roll20 sheet!!

Here is my Scabard campaign page that I keep meaning to update.
