Hi Team Conan Exiles!
DM Wyvern here. I recently started Conan Exiles and plan to share my exploration of the Exiled Lands through this Let’s Play.
A couple of things about my Let’s Play. This is an immersive, non-expert playthrough. I know nothing about Conan Exiles and will make countless mistakes around the way. And some episodes will be more exciting than others, so I apologize if some of them drag from time to time.
This Let’s Play takes place on a private server I have rented out for myself and my friends. This is a Vanilla server - no mods, in short, this is Conan Exiles right out of the box. I hope you enjoy the journey and support it by subscribing to my channel and liking my videos.
DM WYVERN PLAYS CONAN EXILES
Episode 1 - The Journey to Freedom Begins
Character creation! Conan Exiles let’s you select your race and religion as part of character creation. Al the classic Conan literature races and religions are here. I choose to go with a classic Barbarian character and selected Nordheimer as my race and Ymir as my religion.
Next up. The look of my character. Conan Exiles gives you a robust system to customize the look of your character, all the way down to the -ahem- I chose the never out of style: Ragnar Lodbrok meets Khal Drogo look for my character.
When you finish character creation, you get to discover why (allegedly!) your character has ended up crucified in the Exiles Lands. Your sins and crimes are randomly generated and always get an early laugh from me when I see why I ended up here. In the case of my character, I ended up in this vacation spot for the crimes of:
Villany and Rascality (Sounds legit)
Decapitation of a Priest (Being a Nordheimer, this checks out)
Skullduggery and Buggery (Nordheimer, this checks out too - farm animals everywhere beware!)
And there you go. Character creation is done and you are left to your gruesome fate…
The one and only Conan the Barbarian himself shows up out of the waste.
And takes an interest in my plight.
Almost on a whim he frees me.
And then abandons me to my fate - and a sandstorm that engulfs both Conan and myself.
When the storm clears I find myself on some place called the Broken Highway and stumble across this ominous tablet. Interacting with it I discover that there is no escape and I must follow all roads back to the city - it refers to me as Slave - but I get the sinking feeling that the race that created these tablets and the slaves that served them are eons gone. Vanished, save for these grim signposts.
I press on, looking for a way out of the wastes - and then stumble across a gigantic bat like creature feasting over a corpse. It roars at me in warning before thankfully taking to the skies and flying away. Weakened and equipped as I am, I am sure it could have easily torn me apart had it wishes to do so.
I run through the wastes looking for shelter, food and water.
Trees and grass! Water must be nearby. I quickly get to work harvesting plant fibers to make myself some clothing.
Now somewhat protected against the elements… I forge deeper into this area I have discovered.
And now armed with a primitive stone implement.
It doesn’t take me long to discover more signs of an ancient civilization. Towering above the river, I witness The Sentinels for the first time.
And soon stumble upon my neighbors here. They immediately set upon me and try to kill. I am forced to defend myself…
… and end up killing the first of many foolish souls that would draw arms against me.
Now clothed and armed, I set my attention towards crafting my first shelter…
… soon my efforts pay off.
And my first, humble home in the Exiled Lands arises.
