Hi Aen-Sedhe welcome to the boards!
I'm a big fan of the precursor civilization and alien "magic is really their science" tropes too. Adventurers are sure to encounter bits of alien tech and remnant advanced populations in their travels. But there's not enough of it to reverse engineer or help advance civilization out of the dark ages. So, my personal preference is much more than Howard's Conan, much less than He-Man or Thundarr. Roughly around Arneson's Blackmoor https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smug.png

Yeah I really like that idea too. I recently read the Conan story Xuthal of the Dusk and really enjoyed the little detail of the radium glowing lights.

Hey I'm new to Hyperborea. I backed the Kickstarter, but haven't read any of the previous editions.

I'm curious how often technology is featured in people's games? I love the idea of sprinkling in bits of ancient technology throughout a sword & sorcery campaign.

Definitely not a dying breed! I'm fairly new to rpgs in general, and completely new to Hyperborea. Looking forward to playing the game!
