"Know also, 'o prince, that in the self-same days that the Cimmerian did
stalk the Hyborian Kingdoms, one of the few swords worthy to cross with his was
that of Red Sonja, warrior-woman out of majestic Hyrkania. Forced to flee her
homeland because she spurned the advances of a king and slew him instead, she
rode west across the Turanian Steppes and into the shadows mists of legendary."
