Know, oh Prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreampt of, when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars.
In those days, Amergin, son of Conan, ruled in Aquelonia, a king, a man, a lover, a husband, a father.
But not yet a conqueror.
In due course, the Grand Duke of Cordava, ruler of Zingara, which control the ports that dictate Aquelonia’s trade with the sea. As is inevitable, the a hot contest for the throne will begin.
This time, Aquelonia will not pass up the chance.
And you are her agents, her heralds, her forerunners, contacted by the Amergin’s bastard son to go in ahead of Aquelonia’s army and do what must be done to ensure that the army has the information they need and the people are ready for their liberators.

I have all manner of missions planned for this game and many of them will have multiple solutions. There will be at least one 'dungoen crawl' and at least one war, but most of the situations are 'infiltrate this social group to gather information, send a report back, then carry out a sabotage order such as:
Assassinate the leadership.
Seduce the leadership to attain further influence.
Utterly destroy (or arrange utter destruction of) the infilrated group.
Smear the good name of the group's leadership by aranging for ravished women to blame their assaults upon said leadership.

System Stuff: I'll be using the Conan Role playing Game from Mongoose Publishing, 2nd edition, This is a game based on the 3.5 open game liscence. I can curently help people make charecters, but don't curently know how to help people get books. The classes are quite a bit difrent, and the system slightly tweaked to fit the realities of the Hyborian Age better.
Starting level is 4.
Atributes should total 88 before racial modification. We're somewhat extraodinary people, but there are other extraodinary people, and they only improve with level.
Charecters need not be Aquelonian, not at all, just willing to serve the Aquelonians in this cause, if only for gold and a get out of jail free card, though it would be nice if there was something indictative of trustowrthiness or at least mutual profit in your backgrounds.
