After reading the letter found in Publio’s belongings, Conan understands that Flavia’s abductor used the services of an accomplice who is not identified in the letter, but that the latter should go to the coastal territory of the Picts in order to successfully proceed in the exchange of arms, jewels, and wine for skins, copper, and gold dust.

Without further delay, the mercenaries embark on the first ship leaving for Zingara, deciding to then rejoin the Pictish territory by way of the mainland. Conan knows that this is a dangerous journey; the wild and desolate west coast stretches for a thousand miles and is only populated by coastal villages of ferocious tribes.

After having disembarked at Kordava, the sumptuous capital of Zingara, and having made an exhausting journey of several days through the Pictish Wilderness; Conan and his men finally arrive at the edge of the village indicated in the letter. A few hours of careful surveillance enable them to see that several foreigners are lodging there with the painted devils; a Kushite sorcerer, a Kothian warrior and a Turanian prince.

It is now necessary to enter the village in order to unmask the accomplice and interrogate him.

Special Rules

Information: Kerim Shah and Ageera are the potential information carriers. During setup, the Overlord mixes two tokens numbered "1" and "2". Each token corresponds to a lieutenant:
: Agreea
: Kerim Shah
The Overlord randomly chooses one of these tokens, looks at it without showing it to the heroes, and places it facedown in front of them. This token indicates which lieutenant is the information carrier.

Interrogation: To extract the information from a lieutenant, the heroes must kill the Lieutenant. The Overlord then reveals if they were the information carrier. If it was the information carrier, the Overlord replaces the information carrier’s model with the Information card in the same area. A hero in the Information card’s area can pick it up by performing a simple Manipulation.

Fleeing the village: A model can flee the village from one of the three village entrance areas (northwest, southwest and east) by spending movement points as though the model was moving across a border. The model is then removed from the board. Once a model has fled, the model cannot be returned to the board. The Overlord models cannot flee before the beginning of turn 6.

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.
