Anyone here ever played RSI's Hyborian War? If so, which kingdom is yuor favorite? I liked Zamora a lot.
If Woody had gone straight to the Snowhawk Clan, this would never have happened.

I've only seen it advertised in the backs of my old paperbacks. So it must have been a long while ago...

Remember it!?!? What do you mean remember it? ;)

I'm expecting my turn to come today by CROM! I have 3 invasions going down and 3 different countries trying to assassinate my court!

The game is still going, and has an active community at the following places:

Unfortunately, it's kind of expensive if you think about it. But the price depends on the size of the country you play.

Small: $5/turn
Medium: $7/turn
Large: $9/turn

Games run in fast mode, which is 14 day turnaround and slow mode, which is 28 day turnaround.

Each game runs about 27-32 turns I suppose.

Mmmm... not sure.. probably 10-15.. I used to play only the slow games.. which can take 2-3 years to complete.. then I didn't play at all for several years...

Favorite kingdom was Corinthia, which has a solid army, and a few nice agents to assassinate nobles in Nemedia with. I want to play Zamora and Turan though, as I have notyet played either.

I've never won a game.. but I've placed top 10 a few times. Kingdoms I've fought include Zembabwei, Nemedia, Aquilonia, Ophir, Tombalku, Juma's kingdom, etc.

I joined back in after a ~10 year hiatus and just started my third game since May. There is an organized version of the game you can sign up at the www.hyborianwar.alexonia.com website in which you are guaranteed to play against actual people ruling all 36 countries (available). This is as opposed to several of the countrys being played by the RSI computer.

Check out the websites and join up! The amount of strategic contemplation required before making your command decisions is interesting enough for most armchair generals.

I just joined up...getting ready to do my first turn. This is my first time playing Hyborian War (or any PBM), and it is very interesting. I am ruling Cimmeria, which was my 3rd choice on my setup sheet, behind Stygia and Zamora. But it is a lot to absorb at one time!

I enjoyed playing it until a turn that made absolutely no sense made me give it up (well, after that campaign anyway). I was playing Vendhya, and one of the goals was control of Secunderam (I think that was the name) and Turan was also after it. I had a superior army AND Conan showed up to lead them! I should have wiped Turan off that part of the map - but apparently a bribe was paid and my armies withdrew!!!!!!! Wasted Conan and missed out on my goal. I was not pleased :o ;)


Still, all in all a fun game to play.

Just wanted to say that Hyborian war is a great game. I have played about 5 games and won 2 of them. I won playing Border Kingdom and as Kusan. I even got a winners T-shirt for the effort.
I am currenlty playing in HW 780 as Kosala. Its a weak country, militarily but strong diplomatically. What makes this kingdom interesting is that Im sorrounded by the greatest military powers in the game. Somehow they all agreed to ally withe me and I am comfortably growing stronger and stronger. At first I ended up at war with Turan and managed to surprise him and snatch a key province from him. after some real-life emailing etc we became allies.
Im on turn 10 now and am going to achieve my imperial goals within the next 6 turns. Then Vendhya better watch out becasue its gonna be time to liberate those wealthy provinces and add them to the emerging Kosala empire. Jaya Sri Rama, The Lord of Kosala.
