(Savage Sword of Conan I#185/2) - Nedia was a delicate princess grown in a city-state near Mesonia. She was to wed the Prince of Mesonia, a neighboring city-state, to mantain peace between the kingdoms. The King, hired Conan to escort Nedia to Mesonia by night.

    The journey was hard for a delicate girl as the princess. Scared by a flight of bats, she was terrorized by a giant rat, a great serpent and was almost captured by a giant spider. The meeting with a slimy frog was almost as dreadful as the sight of a dinosaur who had Conan and Nedia run for their lives.

    After a night of adventures, Conan and Nedia arrived in Mesonia. Nedia was then able to recognize a real man in Conan, and when she met her prince, she despised his weakness. However, the call of the silks, a hot bath and the harmony of the two city-states forced her to stay, even with many doubts.

The giant spider

    The giant spider was bigger than a man and could weave a giant web.

    The spider lived in a cavern on some mountains between Masonia and Nedia's city.
