One must followed the slithered path of Set, to know the wisdom of the Old Great Serpent One…
So, not much clamouring of ideas so I guess I get the ball rolling!
First thought is which would be better to introduce the this story-arc in its essences?
Shem and Ophir… most definitely are interesting sites to open up in Age of Conan; maybe so much not of recreating the event, but maybe a timeline drawn-forth from, you know?
Lets say the region-Kingdom of Shem has now been thrown into a brink of civil-war power struggle; especially since evil-sorceror did not completely die. Story-arc for Age of Conan content could have a three-prong situation with the sorcerors, King of Shem, and the reach of the influences of the Gods.
Hence the thought of new introduction of Shemite-racial would be epic step for new content wise, but what Archetype and Sub-classes should be available?
(If anyone can manage to wrangle up some excerpts on Robert E. Howard’s depictions of Shemites, please post along with the discussion and be very grateful for it)
Shemites depicted… the access to Archetype Soldier, Priest, Rogue, and Mage seems plausible for lore-continuity/cannon… sub-classes of Guardian, Assassin, Barbarian, Ranger, Necromancer, and Demonologist; though I caution on current sub-classes on Archetype-Priest (Tempest of Set, Priest of Mitra, and Bear Shaman) for Shemites. Reasons being, from the multitude of rivalry religions for the land, it is stated there is a (dominant) west to east of Shem… maybe a addition of a racial-class for Shemite Priest under [Ashtoreth].
Tell me what you think so far… I would enjoy more comments or suggestions also!
