Mixing Potions Can Be Dangerous

I just ordered The Varieties of Liberal Feminism and The Savage Sword of Conan (vol.4) from Amazon, and requested that they be shipped in the same package (to save on costs).

I wonder if the package will explode en route?

  1. An odd pairing. Any Gor books shipping with that.

  2. But both are just as wild and savage as the other.

  3. Both supplements for your next game?

  4. You never know, they might cross-fertilise in the package. Imagine the result...

  5. I wouldn't be surprised if Conan doesn't kill the feminists and take their stuff only to be driven insane by their complaining about how that oppressed them.

  6. Did anyone roll on potion Misc?

  7. Well since they're both versions of fantasy fiction they should get along just fine.

  8. It is hard to picture Conan in sensible shoes, but it could happen.

  9. Aos, très drôle.

    Interestingly "Red Sonja" was created not by Howard but by the writers of Savage Sword in the 1970s. Howard did portray some very strong, independent female characters, e.g. Bêlit and Valeria, so perhaps it was unfair of me to characterize Conan as 'anti-feminist'. I mean, the mighty-thewed barbarian will never be a feminist icon, but the Conan stories (whether Howard's or those of the Savage Sword) are not misogynist.
