Conan: Rise of Monsters by Pulposaurus Entertainment!

Posted on August 4, 2015 by

Know, O Prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the Sons of Aryas, there was an age of swords and sorcery. An age of war. An age of blood and thunder.

An age of…monsters!
