"Know, O Prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of... Hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet."-- The Nemedian Chronicles

Conan the Barbarian was one of the most anticipated releases of 1982, especially by those who considered themselves fantasy/science fiction aficionados. Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger), the pulp hero created by Robert E. Howard in the 1930s, was at the height of his popularity in the late '70s and early '80s. During those years, the so-called "Swords and Sorcery" genre was experiencing a boom spawned by the growth of a new role playing game called "Dungeons & Dragons". Conan the Barbarian still weaves a spell toady, capable of ensorcelling fans of fantasy adventure.
