A drunk Conan surprisingly avoids a tavern brawl by being transported away by three magical sisters who seek his help. They try to sober him up and resist his drunken advances and explain they need him to protect them as they make their way to the underground castle of Quiquayquod. They enter through a magical mirror to a cavern, and Conan defends the women against tentacled and flying beasts. They find the tower and the women conjure a rope so Conan can climb to a window. Inside, the room is full of treasure and Conan spends a joyous few minutes rifling through the gold and jewels, until Quiquayquod enters with his guards and the sisters as prisoners. He explains they are interdimensional witches and would have killed Conan in their quest to return home. Quiquayquod orders them all killed, but the women use their magic to distract the guards and Conan slays them. The women take a golden ring that can take them home, and with a kiss wipe Conan's memory. He awakens to find himself outside a city with a bag full of gold.
