Just throwing this out there:

I started a Conan RP (Hyborian Blood) a little while back and since it started a few of the participants have either disappeared or have had real life interfere with their ability to stay active. So I figured I'd see if anyone's interested in joining. The thread is only 2 pages long so far, so it wouldn't be much to keep up with for a newcomer, and while my initial thread explaining the setting has apparently been archived (I'm guessing), I can still sort things out with someone that isn't overly familiar with the world.

If anyone's interested, let's here it. The RP could use another player or two to keep it more active and interesting.

Sounds interesting. I saw the RP in General Roleplaying and browsed over it a bit, but I'd rather know more about the story before catching up. I've been role playing since forever, but I [i]am[/i] a newbie here. You've been forewarned, I guess?

Damien is correct, the initial interest thread has been archived, but you can find it here:

Feel free to browse through it to see if you are interested, newbie or not. ;)

I checked out the information thread and the story thread, and it looks interesting. I skimmed the story (I did not feel like reading 92, posts, no matter how well-written) and basically what has happened is that you have escaped the slaver's ship, are escorting a prince back to his homeland, and are currently headed towards a wizard in a land called Stygia. Do I have the right idea of what is going on?

That seems about right. At least it seems we're going toward a sorceror. Aside from Damien, we don't really know quite what we're getting into.

Arpentec: All the information you really need is in the RP thread and in the link Caelin posted. If you have that info - you know as much as anyone else except for me.

Ben: You've pretty much got it, yeah.

Take your time to decide if you want to join in - the RP will be resuming shortly. I'm in the middle of moving, so taking the time to post simply hasn't been an option, but that will change soon.

Hey, I'm new to this site, but not to RPing. Seems like a pretty interesting place.

If you're still looking for Conan players, I'd love to play. I just read most of that info you posted, and it looks like it'll be fun.

PM me whether you'll let me in or not, and we can set up a character that won't go against the campaign's direction.

Forgot to mention that I have absolutely no Conan experience, ever, besides seeing some pictures and flipping through the RP core book for about 2 minutes.

I noticed that the world map looks somewhat like a post-pangaean map of our own world. The yellow-skinned jade and silk traders are from the East where China would be on our map, and where India would be there's a culture resembling that of Indians. Negros come from the South, and burly norsemen come from the North... Does anyone else think this is quite past coincidence??

Or is Conan actually set in the real world and I'm just an idiot for not knowing that...
