After a short sea voyage aboard a merchant ship, Conan and his companions finally land in Kordava, the capital of the kingdom of Zingara and listed among the most sumptuous ports of the western nations.

After paying a rather hefty sum, the Cimmerian has obtained permission from the city’s Provost Marshal to visit Arvad, who is being held in prison for theft and smuggling. Once behind the massive walls that separates the prison from the rest of the city, the mercenaries must leave their weapons at the disposal of the guards. They then reach the filthy cell of the Shemite who is surviving on stale bread and stagnant water.

In exchange for some fresh food, Arvad soon reveals that the princess was kidnapped by a Kothian mercenary called Constantius. This mercenary has organized a convoy traveling along the Road of Kings toward the east.

As they prepare to leave, satisfied with this information, uproar suddenly seizes the garrison of the citadel. The intrigued Cimmerian glimpses the graceful silhouette and the dark hair of an old acquaintance through an arrow slit in the wall. The young woman, called Gitara, has already betrayed him in the past after being bluntly rejected.

A cry soon rings out, “Conan, give yourself up! No harm will come to you and you will appear before the justice of our monarch for your acts of piracy; there is a hussy here who claims that you are indeed the Barachan pirate who has a price on his head.”

Special Rules

Gitara: For this scenario, the Overlord cannot get Gitara out of the citadel. Gitara has Protected for this scenario. Do not forget the Sacrifice skill of the Bossonian Guards and the Captain.

Disarmed: The heroes start the game without their equipment of an encumbrance greater than or equal to 1. The Overlord gathers the heroes’ equipment cards with an encumbrance greater that or equal to 1 and places them face up in the area marked . A hero in an equipment area can pick it up by performing a simple Manipulation. Do not forget that any equipment card still on the board at the end of a scenario is lost.

Death of Gitara: When Gitara dies, if the Captain is still alive, he shouts in rage and immediately recovers 3 life point (maximum of 6 life points for the Captain) and is immediately activated for free during the heroes’ turn. His tile stays in its current position and does not count towards the activation limit of the Overlord. If the Captain is dead when Gitara is killed, then the Overlord may immediately use 4 reinforcement points during the heroes’ turn.

Fleeing the citadel: A hero can flee the citadel from one of the outer areas to the west of the board or from one of the entrance areas situated to the north and south of the board by spending movement points as though the hero was moving across a border. The heroes’ model is then removed from the board. Once a hero has fled, the heroes’ model cannot be returned to the board.

Chests: During setup, the Overlord places 3 chests on the board as indicated by the setup diagram. The asset deck contains: 1 Life Potion, 1 Zingaran Bow and 1 Chain Mail.
