Synopsis
Asgalun is ruled by the mad king Akhirom with the aid of three mercenary armies: the Anakian troop under Othbaal; the Kushite troop under Imbalayo and the Hyrkanian troop under Mazdak. Conan seeks revenge upon Othbaal with the help of Farouz, who is actually Mazdak in disguise, out to get rid of the competition. Othbaals slave girl Rufia flees, and in order to survive she makes king Akhirom believe that he is a god, which ultimately provokes a revolution. Conan frees Rufia from the king's jealous mistress Zeriti, and they escape the city as the different factions destroy each other.
