The River Styx marked the border between the Southern Kingdoms of Shem and Stygia.

Hundreds of years before Conan, everyone who participated in slaying of the King of Luxur was lured by Nitocris into a magnificent temple of Set, where she buried them alive and drowned them with the black waters of the Styx. Centuries later, Stornella and Valxavier, returning from Shem with Rosina, crossed the Styx on a horse-powered ferry near where the tributary Bakhr River veers southward toward gleaming Luxur.[3]


  • Not to be confused with the River Styx, the river of Hades in the underworld.
