Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.
Conan the Barbarian is a character created by pulp author Robert E. Howard and featured in a series of short stories of the sword and sorcery subgenre, as well as some pretty ballin' comics and a couple of films, the first of which is one of the greatest cinematic works in history.
Let me live deep while I live; let me know the rich juices of red meat and stinging wine on my palate, the hot embrace of white arms, the mad exultation of battle when the blue blades flame and crimson, and I am content. Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content."
Conan is a Cimmerian, a member of a far northern barbarian tribe. After getting tired of wrecking faces in his homeland, he decides to set out across the world and see what adventure he can find. Evil wizards, giant snakes, eldritch gods, other barbarians - you name it, he's fucking killed it. Maybe he'll do something heroic for you, if there's something in it for him, but don't complain if he also bangs your woman in the process.
