Title: Conan: Aquilonia - Flower of the West
Author: Vincent Darlage
Publisher: Mongoose Publishing
Format: 200-page perfect-bound hardback book
Aquilonia is the wealthiest and most powerful of the Hyborian kingdoms, peopled with a proud population better off than most in the distant epoch of the Hyborian Age. Its barons and counts maintain ancient feuds from generation to generation and the frontiers fight Picts, Cimmerians, Nemedians, Ophireans and each other.
In time, Aquilonia will come to play an even more prominent role in history, as the kingdom comes under the rule of King Conan. Throughout the tales of the Phoenix on the Sword, The Hour of the Dragon and The Scarlet Citadel Conan struggles against entirely different evils to any which he has faced before as the king of Aquilonia. Still more tales, such as Beyond the Black River and Wolves Beyond the Border, feature this fascinating kingdom's struggles with the Picts under the rule of its barbarian king.
Unlike many of the other nations of the Hyborian Age, Aquilonia is populated by a plethora of different racial types. From Gundermen to Poitainians, Bossonians to Taurans and many others besides, each distinctly different, and yet all of them Aquilonians. What characteristics do these races have in common? What characteristics do these races have in difference? How are these heterogeneous populations controlled by a single Aquilonian king? This volume attempts to answer those questions and more.
In an age and country rife with intrigue, murder and horror. Aquilonia could easily be the setting for untold campaigns. From the palatial splendour of the capital, Tarantia, to the rural tranquility to the Tauran and the brooding nobles of Poitain, this Campaign Sourcebook for Conan the Roleplaying Game details Hyboria's greatest kingdom, Aquilonia, the Flower of the West, destined to be ruled over by the mighty Conan himself and fated to wilt in the hands of the Picts!
