7. Tor Conan #22 - Conan the Formidable by Steve Perry. Part 3

Sorry everyone for the delay, been recuperating from oral surgery and just haven't felt like inflicting any Steve perry on myself in my weakened condition.

Chapters 11 - 15

Conan however has never had to content with problems as mundane as those.. instead he gets a wagon load of slavers on his way to Shadizar to concern his time. Slavers who enchant and kidnap him, Conan finds the oddest aspect of this is that Thele and her two siblings are here too. He thinks to himself that his plans to reach Shadizar have been thwarted once again.

Both the Jatti and the Varg leaders are hatching plots to retrieve their respective offspring, It is only a matter of planning and information gathering. A task which both set about, one through old fashioned detective work and the other through the dispensation of coinage.

Dake is making his next move, planning to use Conan and set up an all-comers boxing promotion along the road towards Shadizar. Conan is not a perfectly willing member of this plan but as he is currently enchanted.. has little choice in the matter. They first plan to host a match in the village of Elika which is along the Ellitase River.

The scheme begins and Conan is pitted against the local Champion, this is not as easy as it at first appears and takes Conan some considerable effort to subdue to man. But subdue he does, and with the wagers collected Dake goes inside the wagon to rest up for the next days journey. Conan is left with only one thought, escape.
