Synopsis for "The Rats Dance at Ravengard!"

Conan and Stefanya continue their journey westwards to Phalkar while Conan tells the girl about an adventure he had when he was 15 years old. On his initiation rite, testing his ability to survive in the wilderness, he met Ursla, a beautiful Priestess of the Wild, with big icebears als her servants, and the first woman that invites him to lay down with her. She tells him that he later will encounter more priestesses like her. Stefanya tells Conan about her earliest memories and her upbringing at Zoqquanors home. Some days later their journey is interrupted by the robber baron Torkal Moh of Ravengard and his men, who demand tribute for the pair's passage through his lands. Conan kills one of them and urges Stefanya to flee, but they are soon both captured and Conan is beaten to unconsciousness. He awakens to find himself flat on his back, hands tied to stakes, as the rats of Ravengard emerge from their barrows.
