...but I was mistaken about Howard!
You weren't wrong. Conan was captured by the Hyperboreans during a raid into their territory. He was taken as a slave, eventually escaping by
smashing his capturers face in with his chain. He made his way south after that, doing a stint as a thief in Zamora. Conan's adventures finally led
him to the throne of Aquilonia.
I am a Conan freak, baby!
By the way: Hyperborea was bordered by the Border Kindom to the South, and Cimmeria to the west. They were a mysterious people, delved into the black
arts. The were sworn enemies of the Vanir, Asgardians and Cimmerians.
Shall I keep going?
500 years after the reign of Conan the great, the Hyborian was in turmoil. Aquilonia began it's thrust for domination from the west, and the
Hyrkanians began their assault from the East.
During this same time, The Hyperboreans began a half-hearted attempt at conquest, pushing from their Northern home south. In the Border Kingdom, the
armies of Aquilonia and Hyperborea met, with the latter being utterly defeated.
Shall I go on?
I'm such a dork!
