Added DiffLines:

* ThePowerOfFriendship: Many of Conan's triumphs in this story are due to assistance from allies that he helped at some point in the past. The villains, on the other hand, ultimately fail because they have their own conflicting secret agendas, do not trust each other, and cannot work together effectively.

* FisherKing: Conan's loss of his throne and the corresponding loss of the Heart of Ahriman leads to the devastation of Aquilonia. Though not ''exactly'' mystical, this was very much deliberate as Howard was writing the story for a British market.
