Yeah, if it says sword, he starts with regular sword. There are scenarios from the Monolith Website and the KS exclusive Campaign book that has him starting with Conan's sword. It's also a very popular game for making fan made scenarios- see theoverlord.com So it's just another option for that and also if you need to give the heroes a bit of an edge than feel free to start him with Conan's sword instead.
Fantastic! You rock, Jason. I really appreciate it.
