Enter the world of Kull the King a fantastic new source book for the Conan RPG

Hi there,
f1f215ab-ff81-4951-a6ba-61a73012c57aToday we’re hugely pleased to reveal the The World of Kull – King of Atlantis, a major cross-over book for Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of roleplaying game, featuring the acclaimed art of Justin Sweet as well as contributions from Howard scholar & Kull expert Chris Gruber!
We’re incredibly excited that Justin and Chris are on board for this major new source book, which is presented as part of an exclusive agreement with Cabinet Entertainment and Conan Properties Incorporated. This sourcebook is the first of its kind: an official guide to roleplaying in the antediluvian age of Conan’s spiritual forefather, the Atlantean barbarian-king known as Kull.
The World of Kull – King of Atlantis, is a major cross-over book for Robert E. Howard’s Conan Roleplaying Game and will feature the art of world-renowned fantasy artist and Kull specialist Justin Sweet, who won the Jack Gaughan award, has worked for Black Isle Studios and Wizards of the Coast, as well as producing concept art for the movies Prince Caspian, Snow White and the Huntsman and The Avengers
Contained within its pages are descriptions of the Thurian continent as it was a hundred thousand years ago, long before Conan’s own Hyborian Age. With this volume as their companion, heroes can visit Lemuria, Grondar, Atlantis, the Pictish Isles, Commoria, and the mightiest kingdom of them all… Valusia, City of Wonders. Visit the House of the Thousand Mirrors, seek wisdom at the depths of Forbidden Lake, battle the Skull of Silence, sail with Lemurian pirates to the World’s Edge, debate philosophy with Delcardes’ cat, or strive to claim the Topaz Throne!
Important characters of the age are described in detail, among them King Kull, his loyal ally Brule the Spear-Slayer, his Pictish advisor Ka-nu the Ancient, Chief Councillor Tu, the scholar Kuthulos, and a host of others. New monstrous creatures abound in this sourcebook, including the insidious Serpent Men and the strange and inhuman folk to the south. Also described are notable enemies who plague the age: the elder sorcerer Tuzun Thune as well as Kull’s greatest enemy, the immortal sorcerer Thulsa Doom.

Usable in tandem with Robert E. Howard’s Conan: Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of, this sourcebook contains alternate life paths, cultural backgrounds, magic, gods, and more, bringing Kull’s savage ancient world to life.
Justin Sweet joins a host of other incredible artists to illustrate this legendary tome in what promises to be the biggest ever line ups of artists for a roleplaying game.
Chris Gruber is an award-winning Howard scholar and expert on the Kull stories. Chris has been involved in Howard Studies for over a decade and has served on the review board for The Dark Man: The Journal of Robert E. Howard Studies since 2008. He has authored numerous award-winning essays, introductions, and reviews on Robert E. Howard and has appeared in publications such as Black Gate Magazine, The Cimmerian, REH: Two-Gun Raconteur, and Echoes de Cimmerie. He was the editor of The Boxing Stories of Robert E. Howard from the University of Nebraska Press and the REH-inspired fiction anthology Dreams in the Fire, and the co-editor of the four-volume collection Fists of Iron by the REH Foundation Press.
Written by a team including Jason Durall, Steffie de Vaan, Jack Norris, Richard August, and others, with contributions by world-renowned Robert E. Howard scholars Jeffrey Shanks and Chris Gruber, The World of Kull King of Atlantis will be presented as a lavish 112 page full color hardback and is expected to be available in Summer 2017.
