Hyborian Religion

This is a PDF from the Tabletop Role Playing Game that describes religion in Hyboria. There is some small amount of statistics and game-related information, but most of it is RP-fodder. It is well worth a read if you play a clerical class or if you are just interested in religion and how it works within Hyboria.

I've barely glanced at it so far, but this book looks excellent from what I've seen--looks like Mongoose's designers have done a lot of interesting thinking about what would make religions tick in a setting like Hyboria. Thanks for posting!

Not a problem, I found it when I was looking for information on Mitra and Mitraic religion and then I thought "Well... some of these other lore-buffs will love this, I'm sure."

Even though it isn't REH's work, it's well thought-out. I'm hoping that this can be a good resource thread for anyone playing a Priest (or anyone with a character who is deeply religious).

Awesome resource, Yralin. Thanks for posting that. It's a little too much for me to read through completely right now, as my reading time lately has been spent reading/re-reading though all the original R.E.H. Conan stories that I can get my hands on. I read alot of them as a youth and failed to realize that many of the stories I read were not Howard, but written by Sprague De Camp or Lin Carter, etc. They are great authors, of course, but I guess I'm on a slight 'purist' kick at the moment.

That PDF is a great resource to have, though, especially for one who is interested in writing Conan fanfics/Pastiche stories and of course, for anyone who wants background info to help role play a priest/shaman/spiritualist type of character as well. I'm sure I'll be referring to it often!

One thing to remember is that the world is a big place. How things are done in Tarantia isn't necessarily how they're done in some backwater village. RPG source books have a habit of making their worlds a little too uniform; real life is messy.

Not a problem, guys. As Neferptah said, take this and use it as a resource and not a cookie-cutter guideline. It's just always nice to have additional learning material outside of what is presented in-game (which is very little in the beginning and absolutely NOTHING in the manuals/official website).
