Valen changes his mind about betraying Conan and jumps into a pit after him, bringing the Sword of Graven to him. The Dragon confronts them. Valen reveals to Conan that the people of Solvanthia had tricked him into coming there so that he could be sacrificed. The Dragon escapes the pit and destroys most of Solvanthia until Conan kills it with the Sword of Graven.
