Hey, that is a very good, clear diagram.
"The People of the Black Circle" has become one of my favorite Conan stories. I made this based on Howard's evocative descriptions.
It brings the tale vividly back into my mind.
Thanks very much.

Lots of FUN and serious new RHYMING Hyborian/Fantasy poetry.
"So I took to a life of adventure and daring
leaving most warriors drooling and staring.
After I danced with my exotic flesh baring
I would vanish into the new Sunrise glaring."

Thank you for creating it. I'm going to re-read the story and be using your work to help picture the sequence of events.
And force upon Mankind the Freedom he fears--
And dead gods I will again defy?"

Have you read the LSdC's reworking of a non-Hyborian-Age Howard tale in The Flame Knife. It's a similiar "assault-like" tale that I quite enjoyed. The Road of the Eagles is a good read, too.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Howard's ability to convey so much with so few words is amazing. His battles and movement scenes are often as fully fleshed out as Karl E. Wagner's, even though the latter writes his battle scenes like a historian. Howard writes them like a war reporter - gives you the facts in intertwined bundles that fit together, rather than explaining every bit out when it's already entailed by another statement.
