  • Cimmeria

Time Frame[]

  • A few hours. Early spring.


Conan and Ferus are hunting boar. Conan only kills what he needs to eat, not for sport, so he lets a boar go. The two youths encounter two beautiful women, and, after following them to a stream, split up with them. Conan is just about to kiss Sylvanna when he hears a scream. Investigating, he sees Ferus wither to dust before his eyes -- the women are nymphs intending to feed on the Cimmerian youths. Sylvanna turns into a boar and attacks Conan, but he manages to kill her. He is weaponless, however, when her sister approaches. Because Conan saved the boar earlier, and because she has already fed, she lets Conan go.
