Conan the Barbarian, Hyborian Kingdoms.
 Greetings,

 I have been a huge fan of the Conan the Barbarian stories over the years. The world created by Robert E Howard, and the authors that followed made a world rich in culture and adventures. From the frozen lands of Asgard,Cimmeria, down through the civilized lands of Aquilonia, Zingara, to the city states of Shem,the ancient tombs and deserts of Stygia,and finally to the steaming jungles of the Black Kingdoms. The world of Hyboria cries out for stalwart men of iron and courage,to brave the dangers of these lands.

 Be you a Barbarian from one of the northern lands,with muscles and a naked broad sword, to a Knight of one of the civilized lands. Even a Sorcerer, practicing the arcane arts in a dark tomb of Stygia. All these things are the world that Robert E.Howard created.

 I am looking for a GM that has the same knowledge and love of the Conan novels and the land he walked in, as I do. I seek to rp a character in this world,and the concept can be discussed with any potential GM that is kind enough to respond to this add.

 Thank you for your time and attention. May Mitra watch over you.

I'm new to this site but quite familiar with Howard's stories and a veteran of several RPG systems that would work well for the setting.

It also happens that I'd been considering setting up a Hyborian Age game--if you're willing to work with a GM learning the ropes of RPOL, I'd certainly be willing to run a sword and sorcery campaign.

 I am a vet of RPOL, but some of the GM controls still frustrate me. Hell yes!...ahem.... I mean indeed, I am more then willing to work with you. THANK YOU for responding.

 I have read most of the Conan stories over the years,paper back wise. Never got into comics since I was a kid,but I hear they are good.

Ok, I will put something together here shortly to advertise in the 'Wanted - Players' forum. (I'm thinking maybe 3 PCs total for a full party?)

To that end: do you have any system preferences, since you initially proposed the game? I'm thinking one of these, in descending order of preference...

- On Mighty Thews
- Barbarians of Lemuria
- Dungeon World
- Fate Core

 Gulp!. In my zeal to get a Game set in Hyboria, I totally forgot about a system to use. Are any of t hem in free pdf?

On Mighty Thews is available as a $5 PDF (https://onmightythews.com/) although the "play aids" link on the front page of that site (https://dl.dropboxusercontent....hews%20Play-Aids.pdf) provides what is essentially a free summary/quickstart of the rules.

It's geared toward sword & sorcery (which is why I listed it first), and I expect that as the GM I'd be calling for dice rolls as dramatically necessary/useful anyway, no matter what system we used.

Dungeon World has its rules available for free online (http://book.dwgazetteer.com/).

Fate Core has its rules available for free online (https://fate-srd.com/).

No worries. I'll use On Mighty Thews but there should be no need for anyone to purchase the PDF if they look at the "Play Aids" PDF I linked. I'll clarify the steps in the 'Making a Character' column on p. 1 in the game forum.

 Ok, Do you have any idea where you might start the characters?

At the moment, I'm thinking a city in Turan (maybe Aghrapur or Samara?), but I'm totally open to suggestions if there's some location in particular you'd like.
