MESSANTIA STRETCHES BEFORE YOU, THOUGH TAKE HEED; FOR BEYOND THE SALT-RIMED TIMBERS, WEATHERED QUAYS AND GILDED TOWERS OF ARGOS' GREATEST CITY LIE THE AND CLAPBOARD SHACKS, RIOTOUS BAZAARS AND CRAMPED ALLEYWAYS, LIT ONLY BY THE FLASH OF KNIVES. MESSANTIA IS A CITY OF INTRIGUE AND PERIL, A CITY OF LORDS AND MERCHANT HOUSES, ALL SCHEMING THEIR WAY THROUGH THE THOUSAND FACES BEHIND THE GATES AND DOORS OF THEIR BARRICADED VILLAS. WHILE DECENT MEN LABOUR AND TOIL TO EARN AN HONEST WAGE AND GREEDY MERCHANTS HOARD THEIR GOLD, DESPERATE REFUGEES AND FUGITIVES, GLADIATORS AND ADVENTURERS KILL FOR COPPER. SO MAKE READY LADS, TOSS A PURSE OF SILVERS TO THE HARBOURMASTER AND MAKE READY TO ENTER THE GOLDEN CITY ITSELF.

Like a gilded pearl gleaming in the sand that rises above the surf, Messantia, the Golden City, capital of Argos and home to one of the mightiest natives of the Hyborian Age, glitters on theshore of the Western Ocean.

Standing astride the banks of the Khorotas River and blessed with a wide, deep-water harbour, Messantia is perfectly suited to be the trading capital it has become. In an age as vital and deadly as the Hyborian Age, however, it takes more than mere geography to build and hold a seat of power like Messantia. It takes strength, it takes cunning, it takes avarice and above all, it takes gold.

Within is a treasure trove of detail to bring the city of Messantia roaring to life at the gaming table. This series of books is devoted entirely to this fascinating city, revealing its history, culture, customs, points of interest, economy, intrigues and people. With new material carefully constructed to fit seamlessly with the old, both players and Games Masters will find Conan: Messantia - City of Riches a tremendous boon to their own campaigns in the Hyborian Age.
