Conan: Rise of Monsters - News

CROM Lore – Fall of Mitra

It’s perfectly possible (and fun!) to simply build a war band and start a battle, but Conan: Rise of Monsters does have a story which creates context for these battles.


Crom Sample Quests

Last week we offered a sample Quest for Conan. This week we present one for Thoth-Amon, as well some discussion on how Quests affect your game overall.

CROM Variations – Scenarios and Quests

There are many different ways to play CROM. In the most basic version, Victory Points are awarded for destroying enemy units or driving them from the field. Each unit swept away earns 1 VP, and the warlord with the most VP at the end of six rounds wins. (more…)

CROM Public Beta

We are excited to announce that the Conan: Rise of Monsters Public Beta rules are now available on DriveThruRPG!


CROM Unit Preview #4 – Gunderland Pikemen

“With the knights came what seemed a second, irregular army on tough swift ponies. These dismounted and formed their ranks on foot – stolid Bossonian archers, and keen pikemen from Gunderland, their tawny locks blowing from under their steel caps.” -The Scarlet Citadel


CROM Unit Preview #3 – Ancestor Guard


“The supposedly dead man was rushing upon him, eyes blazing with indisputable life, his short sword gleaming in his hand.” -The Slithering Shadow (aka Xuthal of the Dusk)


CROM Unit Preview #2 – Scion of Set


“Instantly the monster whirled and was upon him like the rush of wind through tall grass. The long knife quivered in its neck, point and a foot of blade showing on one side, and the hilt and a hand’s breadth of steel on the other, but it only seemed to madden the giant reptile. The great head towered above the man who faced it, and then darted down, the venom-dripping jaws gaping wide.” -The People of the Black Circle


CROM Unit Preview #1 – Bossonian Archers

Over the last dozen weeks, we have teased most of the mechanics for Conan: Rise of Monsters. As we get ready to release the Quick-Start rules, we’re going to begin looking at the units that you might select for your army. First, let’s take a look at one of the signature units from the Circle of Iron: the Bossonian Archers.


“They were far outnumbered, and the Shemitish bow had the longer range, but in accuracy the Bossonians were equal to their foes, and they balanced sheer skill in archery by superiority in morale, and excellence in armor. Within good range they loosed, and the Shemites went down by whole ranks.” -The Scarlet Citadel

For now, let’s get into this last round of cards…
