Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Conan and Belit chase Sonja and her stolen scroll through the mountains outside Messentia. As the barbarian begins to overtake Sonja, a coincidental rockslide splits them, and Sonja gains a large lead. Meanwhile, the mysterious hooded priest who has been observing the events begins to cast a spell, invoking his god Set. Sonja makes her way to Karanthes's temple, the Nest of the Sacred Ibis, and the priest reveals that he was behind the landslide, to Sonja's frustration, who would rather fight her own battles. Suddenly, Conan, who has successfully tracked Sonja, comes into the chamber, and a battle breaks out between the two warriors. Sonja gains the advantage when she tips an oil lamp on Conan, but Conan fights back and forces the battle into a nearby treasure room, much to Karanthes's horror, as the roomis protected by a giant serpent. Conan and Sonja work together to defeat the monster, and decide they make a better team than enemies, and turn on the priest. Just then, the hooded priest, now transformed into a giant humanoid bat, bursts through the ceiling...
