Synopsis for "Brothers of the Blade!"

The Crimson Company arrives at Ronnoco. Lord Belzamo and his son Vanni explain the rivalry with the two neighbour cities of Carnolla and Pergona. In order to blackmail Pergona into an alliance with Ronnoco, they task the mercenaries with the abduction of the daughter of the Lord of Pergona, who is on her way to marry the prince of Carnolla. They suceed after Conan and Tara defeat the three Blade Brothers, the leaders of the pergonan guards. Meanwhile a detachment of mercenaries travels to the scorpion temple to retrieve the ring with a special container, but is defeated by the shadow creature which grows with each man it swallows. Only the crimson mercenary Yusef survives and flees to Ronnoco to report.
