"Conan the Cimmerian"
Prologue, a brief history of Conan's days as a wanderer, thief, mercenary, pirate of the coasts of Kush, chief to the tribes of Himelian outlaws, and ultimately, King of Aquilonia.
"The Phoenix on the Sword!"
Adapted from Robert E. Howard's story. King Conan is surrounded by a band of ambitious men who plan his downfall, the Rebel Four, and in the forced employ of one of these rebels is Thoth-Amon, a down-on-his-luck Stygian wizard. When Thoth recovers his lost ring of power, Conan has more that just a traitorous lot to worry about, as mystical beasts lurk behind the cut-throats.
First appearance of Thoth-Amon.
