This is an for “everybody” topic, feel free to correct and add more.
I did not read the Robert E. Howard book so i’m basing this post on the movie “Conan the barbarian 1982” and “Conan the destroyer 1984” and also the game “Severance - blade of the darkness” that was created by “Rebel Act” and released by Codemaster. Worry not this game is long dead.
Little disclaimer, these are just coincidences because back in the days this was the main topic of most of the movie/game.
These are therefore, just curiosities so don’t get “warm” over it.
What I want to do is to take the characters from the movie “Conan” and give them a class according to this game. I’ll also add some curiosities about the movie “The salute of the Jugger”. Feel free to add more.
Conan, he was indeed a barbarian, but for some reasons he is a conqueror in this game, he is a king, but in the movie he was the king of the thieves and he could have killed you for some money, however he wants a revenge against “Thulsa Doom” who killed his family. Thulsa Doom will cut Conan’s mom head in front of the kid.
The movie as you should know ends with Conan cutting Thulsa Doom head in front of his people.
**Conan Mom - Barbarian.
Conan Woman - Barbarian.
This Keaira who is Conan lover or wife, an assassin, i have no idea where they got it.
Thulsa Doom - He was first a conqueror then he became a ToS.
Subotai - Best friend of conan, he is a ranger.
This guy is not given a name, he will save Conan life too, he is a nec.
Rexor - Conqueror.
Thorgrim - he will appear also in the movie “the Gladiator”, he is the retired gladiator using an iron mask fighting into an 1v1 with the Gladiator. He is a Bear Shaman.
Then we have “Conan the Destroyer”.
Malak - He is the only assassin in the movie, he fights with 2 knives however he is indeed a thief.
Bombaata. - One of the strongest characters, he is a Bear Shaman.
Then we have this “kick butts”, he almost kills Conan and he is about same strength if not more, he is a Dark Templare.
Queen Tamaris - PoM
The crazy priest - i don’t know the name - He is a Demo.
Thoth Amon, he is the lizard man, i would say demo but because he can change shape let’s say HoX.
I could not find guardian because none of them in the movie has a full armour, but there are plenty who could be guardians but half armoured.
Serverance - Blade of the darkness.
This game was resealed at the really begin or the 2001 and was really successful, it has the same combo system and you can play barbarian or knight too, he also has the fatalities where you can cut in pieces your enemy and indeed mobs do have shields and you have to use the combo to hit where he does not have it. You can block the hit at the same way you do in this game.
You can also play the dwarf or the amazon.
Combo system, you don’t see the arrows you have to memorise them.
The movie “The salute of the jugger”.
That movie has his plot but it goes around a game where you do not have to capture the flag but in the movie it is a skull, the guy who has to capture the skull is often called quicker, when he fails he blames his team and he is actually correct because his team has to protect him while he is running with the “flag”.
When your tank gets angry because he was killed and nobody was protecting him, does it remember of something?
Indeed, there are just curiosities, the combo system back in the days was used, and still today, in many games, those were the common classes, and the main topic of many movies was this one, sword mages and a fantasy world.
Feel free to add something, this post is just for fun, so have some fun. Regards.
