- Synopsis / Plot
- Thulsa Doom, evil ruler of the snake cult of Set, raids a Cimmerian village, decimating most of the populace and selling the rest into slavery, including young Conan. Conan grows up as powerfully-built man and is trained as a fighter, before being granted his freedom. Joined by the thief Valeria, who becomes his lover, and the archer Subotai, Conan conducts an outrageous robbery of one of the cult’s temples in Shadizar. This brings them to the attention of the king who hires them to rescue his daughter from the clutches of the Set cult. This is something that provides Conan with the chance to meet with Thulsa Doom again and avenge the death of his parents.
