The Schwarzenegger Conan Movies

Crom! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we look back that the Arnold Schwarzenegger Conan films, Conan the Barbarian (1982) and Conan the Destroyer (1984). They’re great fantasy films (OK, one of them is great) that certainly influenced RPGs, but there are some indications that Dungeons & Dragons might have had a little bit of influence on Destroyer. We discuss the high points of both films, nearly forget to talk about the amazing Basil Poledouris soundtracks and totally forget to talk about that King Conan teaser that’s been tormenting folks for nearly forty years. Oops!
