Time FrameEdit

  • One day.


Conan, in chains, has been running from wolves for two days in the snow-covered forest. He falls through some thin ice but makes his way into a cave. The wolves refuse to follow him for some reason, and as he explores his haven he comes across unreadable glyphs above a low door. Conan stumbles over a wooden chair as he enters an inner chamber, and cautiosly moves forward, discovering more items deeper inside. He lights a fire and sees a large skeleton in a stone throne with a sword in its lap. Conan takes the sword. Suddenly, the skeleton rises and lumbers towards the barbarian, who defends himself, rather unsuccessfuly, with the sword, as even chopped off limbs attack. Conan manages to kick the monster into the fire and as the morning comes, he sets off with his new sword.
