The Iron Shadows in the Moon (Part 1): The Island wiki last edited by RathHood on 02/19/14 01:48PM View full history

A new arc opens, and our next Robert E. Howard story adaptation begins! With Conan barely having enough time to get his brain and body in gear after surviving the Ilbars Massacre, he comes across Shah Amurath in the wetlands near the Vilayet Sea. After running into the shah and a fugitive slave, Conan embarks on his next quest: laying low on a remote island until the military heat in the region is off of him. However, the gods tend to enjoy putting Conan in precarious situations, and our beloved barbarian is soon enmeshed in pirate politics and a centuries-old mystery! Just how did those huge iron statues get to this island in the Vilayet Sea, what happens to the island at night, and what strange beast is stalking Conan and his new friend, Olivia?

High Adventure! 0

My concerns were laid to rest quickly. There's a certain elegance to the universe Conan inhabits, and anyone who even remotely enjoys fantasy, will find very li...
