"Night of the Gargoyle!"
After leaving the oasis and Zhadorr, Conan makes his way through the desert to the City of Thieves, in Zamora. Here Conan drinks, and watches the busy streets of the Marketplace and Merchant Shops, until the turn of a young wench's head catches his eye.
The fair Arlinna has been forced by Baron Takkim to try and steal a most precious artefact - the Dragon Head of Koblar-Zann, from the sorcerer Lun-Faar. She approaches Lun-Faar under the guise of a foreign Princess looking to purchase precious artefacts, but the sorcerer sees through the deception, and catches her in the act.
Lun-Faar then awakens a mighty Gargoyle - Tavashtri, and sends him after Baron Takkim. Before the night is through, Conan will battle the beast as well. But, what of Arlinna, will Conan have time for the pleasure of a good woman, after all the fighting is through?
