Conan is surprised by a pack of soldiers from the city Zahmahn as he attempts to drink from a protected spring.The Cimmerian kills the captain of the guards and knocked by another soldier,in fear that the queen may,question them,as who killed her favorite. The soldiers manage to get the best of the weary barbarian and drag him before their queen, the power-mad Fatima. Impressed by the barbarian, she takes him as her consort for several weeks until Conan makes the mistake of being nice to the slave girl Yaila. The insanely jealous, or maybe just insane, Fatima sentences the two to death in the sewers at the pleasure of the Dweller in the Darkness.Conan is chained next to Yaila,upon an ancient wall,as both hear something coming,from down inside the darkened caverns. Conan manages to break free of the chains that hold him as a huge,pink tentacle reaches around a corner.The Cimmerian and the girl travel down the sewer tunnel just as the Dweller, a giant octopus slithers into view,in a vast chamber beyond.The wretched creature,once human,but now transformed into the thing,it is now lashes out at Conan and female companion.Conan attempts to rescue the girl,Yaila,who snatched up one of the veil creatures tentacles.Even the monster is spongy and hard to cut,Conan manages to slice one of the creatures eyes,blinding it.The monster,now in pain,begins lash out,as the Cimmerian and the girl attempt to find an excite to the problem.
Conan carrying Yaila scramble up a tunnel in the ceiling. Breaking through a manhole, they find themselves in the middle of Fatima and a group of guards. Fed up with the situation, Conan grabs the queen and threatens to throw her down the hole to the monster. Fatima promises Conan anything he wants if he lets her go. Not believing her for a second, Conan tosses her to the Dweller and listens, satisfied, to the screams. Conan turns to face the guards, but is surprised when they cheer; they were fed up with Fatima themselves. Conan takes the opportunity to attempt to make himself king, but when he discovers that Zahmahn only allows queens, names Yaila as the next ruler and, having enough of queens, leaves town.

Synopsis for "Web of the Spider-God"Edit
Conan is attacked by marauders near an oasis. Surprisingly, Conan is defeated and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he stumbles through the sands for some time. After having a vision of a giant spider, he finally arrives at an oasis and is helped by an elderly desert dweller, Thanix. The old man tells Conan about Omm, the spider-god worshipped in the Zamoran city of Yezud, and that the priests have kidnapped his daughter to be sacrificed. In return for saving his life, Conan travels with Thanix to Yezud and quickly runs afoul of Yezud's soldiers. Conan and Thanix are tossed into the dungeon where all the sacrifices are kept. Conan causes a distraction to allow Tork, a spy from Shadizar, to escape. Tork has a plan to destroy the city by creating a rockslide in the caverns underneath the town. Conan is brought to Modar, the high priest of Omm, for sacrifice, and sees the gigantic spider the town worships. Conan breaks free and throws the frail priest into the spider's web where he is killed. Conan is pushed into the web himself, but manages to fend off Omm. The wounded spider tries to crawl back into its cave but Conan doesn't stop stabbing and beating it. The townspeople, furious that the barbarian treats its god so, attacks, and Thanix is killed. At that moment the city starts to collapse into the ground as Tork has succeeded in sabotaging the tunnels. Conan and Thanix's daughter, Lea, escape, and Lea and Tork go to Shadizar as Conan continues his wanderings.

Synopsis for "A Sword Called Stormbringer!"Edit
A group of hooded killers stalk a fleeing woman on horseback, but as luck would have it, Conan is nearby and comes to her rescue. Just the touch of one of the hooded men's sword fells the barbarian, but before they can finish him off, a flock of giant eagles appears to chase the men away. The girl turns out to be Zephra, daughter of the wizard Zukala, who Conan met some years before. The wizard himself, without the power of his mask, has become a frail old man, and seeks Conan's help in defeating the evil of Kulan-Gath and his henchwoman Xiombarg. He asks Conan to go to the city of Yagala, which has been transported from another dimension. Zukala enchants Conan's sword and Zephra guides the barbarian to the city. The wizard then truns his attention to the seeress Xiombarg, who is preparing to send her captain, Gaynor, after Conan. The woman senses Zukala's spying and breaks the connection. Some time later, Conan and Zephra encounter a traveler from Yagala's dimension - Elric of Melnibone. Conan assumes the pale rider is his enemy and attacks. Conan is unable to best the magically enhanced and armored Elric, and both parties stop fighting when they realize neither is working for Xiomberg. Suddenly, the undead forces of Gaynor attack. A vicious fight begins, only ending when Zephra uses her magic to call forth a flood of rain that washes the hellish flesh of the damned away, though Gaynor gets away. As Elric is also heading for Yagala, the three companions decide to travel together.
