Funcom is running a promotional event in anticipation of a new RTS Conan game they'll be releasing.
The concept is to start a new character (no extra slot this time like the Saga events) and see how far in levels you can get it without dying.
Rewards are vanity armor at lvl's 20, 40, 60 and 80, with a weapon at 80 too. Also you'll get badges at each 10 levels that you can display beside your name in game and there's an achievement that goes with it.
You'd think 'meh, who cares', but Tortage is packed, I'm seeing alot of dungeon call's on chat from Black Castle on up and saw my first badged lvl 80 today so people are doing it. I'm thinking 'anything that get's people playing'.http://www.ageofconan.com/news/unconquered_mode
