It was guided by the long sweep from the poop, and propulsion was furnished mainly by the broad striped silk sail, aided by a jibsail. The oars were for use in tacking out of creeks and bays, and during calms. There were ten to the side, five fore and five aft of the small mid-deck. The most precious part of the cargo was lashed under this deck, and under the fore-deck. The men slept on deck or between the rowers' benches, protected in bad weather by canopies. With twenty men at the oars, three at the sweep, and the shipmaster, the crew was complete.

Conan boards a trade ship but then the ship gets attacked by pirates. Conan proves himself a mighty warrior and is spared by the pirate captain. A pirate captain known as the queen of the black coast. Together, they raid the black coast as the most powerful pirate couple around.
