CONAN: Queen of the Black Coast- The Aduio Drama Episode 1
Know oh Prince that between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of recorded history, there was an Age undreamed of…
When shining Kingdoms lay spread across the world- like blue mantles beneath the stars…
From the north came a CIMMERIAN - sword in hand. A thief, a reaver, a slayer, with GIGANTIC melancholies,
and gigantic mirth - to tread the Jeweled thrones of the earth under his sandaled feet.
~The Nemedian Chronicles
Into the seaport town Messantia, of the southern Hyborian kingdom of ARGUS, the road of Kings led the twenty four year old Cimmerian barbarian- CONAN. Having gotten crossways with the local justice system over a friend of his and the death of a guardsman, Conan took the law into his own hands with his mighty broadsword. The guardsmen were not pleased by his northern Cimmerian ideas of justice, so CONAN “borrowed” a horse from the courts and fled looking for a ship.
The mercenary ship- The ARGUS, just so happened to be putting out to sea as CONAN thundered down the pier having just stormed through the market- guardsmen hot on his trail.
Will the ship’s captain, TITO, allow the Cimmerian passage, or will the guardsmen fill his back full of arrows first? And what of the legendary She-Devil Pirate Queen of the Black Coast?

Believe green buds awaken in the spring,
That autumn paints the leaves with somber fire;
Believe I held my heart inviolate
To lavish on one man my hot desire.
The Song of Belit part 1

Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion.
I know this: if life is an illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me.
I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and I am content. — CONAN http://brokensea.com/conan/
