Back cover text:
A SAVAGE HORDE IS OUT FOR BLOOD...
AND ONLY THE MIGHTY CONAN STANDS IN THEIR PATH!
When the army of Aquilonia marched across Thunder River and into savage Pictland, the tribes of the Picts were driven away. To secure his rich new territory, King Numedides built Fort Tuscelan. This powerful outpost, Numedides thought, would keep the barbarian Picts from striking back.
But Numedides' lone fort is not enough to stop the Pict raiders. In recent days, the ruthless natives have burned Aquilonian homesteads, raided merchant caravans, and brutally murdered several soldiers from the fort.
For the Picts have united behind a sorcerous leader. The great witch-doctor, Zogar Sag, has sworn a sinister vengeance upon the Aquilonian invaders. Even now, he is raising a vast Pict horde to crush Fort Tuscelan.
You are Conan of Cimmeria, commander of the scouts at Fort Tuscelan. Can you stop Zogar Sag and his army? All of Aquilonia is depending upon you to save the land Beyond Thunder River!
