As I recall, Amra, there are a couple of camps regarding the Cimmerian landscape: the "rolling hills, as in West Texas" people and the "hills are shorthand for mountains" people.
I see that you and I are of the second camp, but there are plenty who belong to the first camp, and we may have to agree to disagree. (Although you and I know that we're right.)
Indeed. Whoa! First a pastiche referral and now an emoticon. I think I am coming down with something.
Cimmeria was big, could it not have hills and mountains both with thick forests ? having a little bit of both across the landscape .
Yep, I think so and deuce from The Cimmerian agrees.
That's about how I see it. In no way am I saying that there weren't mountains in Cimmeria; just that hills predominated and most of the mountains were located in the n-w corner, where Conan was born.
