How did REH describe Conan ?


Volcanic blue eyes staring from under a mane of black hair square cut. Thick heavy arms, large hairy chest, corded muscles like steel cables. Dark scarred face, a giant of a man. Quick to anger and quick to laugh. A passion for strong drink, a gusto for food, and a lover of women. The strongest man most have ever seen. His armor and weapons vary from story to story and sometimes there are multiple within the stories. His most common weapons are a broadsword and poniard. He is usually wearing some form of mail (ring or chain) on his arms and legs with a scale-mail hauberk. He usually has a helmet in three stories it is mentioned it is adorned with bulls horns. He wears no jewelry (necklaces, earrings, or rings) as king he has a slender golden crown and a silver scepter. If he is not wearing armor (plate-mail, ring-mail, scale-mail, chain-mail) he is usually wearing a tunic and loin-cloth as a youth or a silk shirt, and silk or leather breeches. He is intelligent and can speak multiple languages, read and write, and even has cartographic abilities. He can read archaic and ancient languages as well. No man can stand before him in battle.

You really did a fine job Amra. A pleasure to read.
?Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in an attractive and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways, Champagne in one hand,
strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and
screaming?.. WOO HOO?. What a RIDE!?
