IMO, you got the best one. And, if you got it for cover price, then you got it for a steal. I just did a quick Google search, and that book is going for $160 today.

I own all the editions, and the differences are minimal. The biggest difference is between the original edition and the Atlantean edition. The Atlantean cleaned up some things. Both the original and the Atlantean are beautiful, full color books. Unfortunately, the second edition is black and white.

The game is 98% the same in all three editions. To give you an idea of some of the differences: The map of the Known World is drawn differently in the original edition than what you see in the later two editions.

Dodge and Parry are updated and clarified in Atlantean/2nd.

2nd makes it much more clear that the game is intended to be played at lower levels--the Hyborian Age is a low level, gritty world. See the section labeled Advanced Characters on pages 11-12, then take a look at the Beastiary in the back of the book. You'll see examples of humans like Savage Picts that are first level (and they are quite fierce compared to a Commoner).

2nd also improved the grapple rule. Before, the d20 rule was used, where two attacks must be made--a touch, then a grapple. Even D&Ders complain about this rule. 2nd makes it so just one attack is needed to successfully grapple.

Stuff like that.

I spotted THIS adventure, written for 13th Age, and it seemed to be fairly suitable to convert to a Conan RPG game. Just strip out the magic items and populate with your own creatures (and maybe decrease the different types of creatures, eliminating the more magical ones).

I think it would work well, with some adjustment, as a template on which to build a bigger Conan adventure.
