Now we come to the main plot of the film: Conan vs. The Hippies!

The "creature type" reference was originally supposed to be a gag based on the gazebo story, but I (thankfully) side-stepped that.

As a rule, I generally don't like to show a character's thoughts. Here, though, it helped get the joke across. I sacrifice my scruples for the sake of bad jokes.

There doesn't seem to be a thread for this chapter. Check for yourself at the forum for chapters.

Transcript:

Scene: Conan, mounted on horseback, comes across a group of travelers.
DM:You come across pilgrims on a, well, pilgrimage. They are singing songs and banging tambourines.
Conan:What creature type are they?
DM:Unarmed humans.
Conan:Ah. Hey, guys. Which way to Dr. Doom's mountain?
Pilgrim 1 (DM):To see him you must fill yourself with his love!
Pilgrim 2 (DM):Throw down your sword!
Pilgrim 3 (DM):Return to the earth!
Conan:Hm.
Conan (thinking):A. "Time enough for the earth in its grave!" B. They sound a bit like hippies. C. Wait. "Throw down your sword?" "Return to the earth?" Are they telling me to surrender and die?
Pilgrim 1 (DM):Peace, brother!
DM:Chris?
Conan:Attack the hippies! Conan never surrenders!
