Balthus is an young man, recently sent to help defend the border lands of western Aquilonia; lands which encroach upon the territory of the savage [[TheSavageIndian Picts]]. He meets and befriends Conan, a Cimmerian, who has been serving at the nearby fort as a tracker and soldier for several months. There have been a recent rash of murders, perpetrated by demonic minions of Zothar Sag, a Pictish chieftain. Conan suggests breaking the shaky peace with the Picts in order to put a permanent end to the problem. He assembles a small team, including Balthus, who along with himself, will sneak into Zothar Sag's camp and kill him. However, this will require them to cross [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Black River]] and into Pictish territory, a [[DeathWorld savage land]] for a savage people, populated by all manner of beast, and [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow some things out of their nightmares]].
