The Hyborian Age is a time of incessant war. The armies of kings and queens cannot master the battlefield alone, and the task is left to those sell-swords who trade blood for coin. In Conan the Mercenary, the battle fields are yours to kill for, and to die on. Join legendary mercenary companies, support revolts, or fight for the throne. It matters not the motive for war —gold is the wage for your blade. The jeweled thrones of the Earth tremble when mercenaries mass against them, and citizens pray to their gods when those selfsame killers are out of work and turn to banditry. In this age, the records of war and battle are mankind’s only testament, and names are written on the annals of history in blood. Join your dog-brothers and sword-sisters on the fields of battle, and take your pay in gold and glory!
Conan the Thief takes you into the dark underworld of the Hyborian Age. From the choked avenues of the most dangerous cities to the marbled corridors of the wealthiest palaces, master thieves and deadly assassins seek to make their fortunes, risking all in pursuit of gold, prestige, and respect. Whatever it is you seek, fast hands and quicker wits can forge a legend. Embark upon dangerous heists, avoiding traps, watchmen, hideous creatures, and fell sorceries in pursuit of treasures beyond your wildest dreams. Work alongside legendary thieves of Conan’s world, carrying out robberies worthy of their reputation, or work against them and take the riches of the world for yourself! Steal wealth beyond measure, avoid capture, and secure yourself a place in infamy! This book requires the Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of corebook to use.
