Synopsis[edit | edit source]

The demon Imhotep sits upon his steed on a mountain overlooking the Great Forest where he knows Conan is. Deep within, Conan and Keiv try to get their bearings in the dense canopy when Keiv suddenly vanished and Conan is discovered by a troop of Kothian soldiers who attack before the recognize Conan's uniform signifying a high ranking Shemite warlord, their allies. They bring him to their camp where their general Soto trades information with Conan. He warns Conan of the witch queen Ren and her daughters, active on this nocturnal equinox, and Conan tells him of Imhotep. Soto thinks it likely the witches have taken Keiv, and Conan leaves to find him. He encounters a witch and is taken deep into the swamp to meet Ren, queen of the witches, who admits to having taken Keiv. She will return him to Conan if Conan returns with the head of Soto. She also wonders if Conan is allied with flame headed girl who roams the swamp, which Conan knows nothing of.
