Re: You're welcome!

Indeed, my_partner_doug and I were discussing Conan in the context of low fantasy. Now technically, Conan is sword & sorcery, but those subgenres overlap in places. Conan definitely has the LF traits of grim and gritty tone plus success by personal effort rather than divine or magical benison, even though the character has epic prowess and the campaigns tend to be large-scale.

Yes, that fits with what I recall from my casual exploration of Conan.
