Bad example.[edit]

I don't know where the idea that Conan the Barbarian is illiterate came from, but it doesn't apply in either Howard's books (in which Conan's first appearance was with scroll in hand) or the John Milius movie (in which he is again seen reading, until he's interrupted by a terrified prostitute, and the narration specifies that he studied philosophy). As such, I'm removing this example. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.141.14.101 (talkcontribs)

  • "Illiteracy: Barbarians are the only characters who do not automatically know how to read and write. A barbarian may spend 2 skill points to gain the ability to read and write all languages he is able to speak." – D&D Player's Handbook v3.5. Jonathan Tweet et al. Wizards of the Coast, 2003. It's clearly an authority. 66.102.80.224 (talk) 15:18, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
