Shattered Swords of Hyboria
Codes of Honor
Any character can begin the game with a code of honor at no cost.
Codes of Honor come from two different sources:
Conan the RPG (2nd ed)
The Conan Compendium (Atlantean Edition)
The following are the allowable codes of honor.
- Barbaric Code of Honor
- Chivalrous Code of Honor
- Civilized Code of Honor
- Honor Among Thieves
- Mercenary Code of Honor
Benefits of a Code of Honor
Any character with a code of honor gains a +3 morale bonus on all Will saving throws, rising to +6 if the Will saving throw is against Corruption. Furthermore, he gains a +2 bonus to Reputation.
However, living by any code of honor requires certain restrictions on what the character can and cannot do and breaking a code of honor usually means the loss of its benefits forever.
Note: As stated in the Religion section, bonuses for a code of honor and faith do not stack.
