Synopsis for "Tower of the Serpent-Women!"

Thongor and Sharajsha set forth on the floater christened Nemedis to Tsargol. Their quest is to find the metal known as star stone to recraft the star sword. The original sword was from the old city Nemedis and was wielded by Thungarth. In a battle against the Dragon Kings the sword was destroyed and Thungarth was slayed.

Sharajsha dropped off Thongor at the Scarlet Tower and Thongor slew his way through many slorgs to the star metal. After obtaining the metal he tied it off to his craft but was soon captured by the Sark's men. The Sark sought answers of the whereabouts of the star stone but Thongor would not speak and was sent to the arena. There he teamed up with the now former guard captain Karm Karvus who was imprisoned after Thongor's attempt at escape. Karm ensured Thongor that he wasn't responsible for his fate however as the Sark always wished to rid himself of Karm since he is a prince of Tsargol and would be in line to be the next Sark.

At the arena Karm and Thongor fought together to save an unnamed woman who was to be the Sark's favorite creatures' sacrifice. The creature in question was that of a Zemadar a giant lizard with a steel like hide. Together the two slew the Zemadar by targeting its soft eyes thus saving the woman. Thongor then turned his attention to the Sark and threw Sarkozan, Thongor's sword, towards his observing perch nailing the now dead Sark causing him to fall to the arena floor.
