Synopsis for "The Mound of Skulls"
Korak is washed up on shore near a village of slave hunters. The villagers notice that Korak wears the weapons of the fallen slave hunters that he killed earlier in the day (last issue). He is promptly rewarded with a young woman/lover. The woman tells Korak that the Chief has recently captured a white skinned girl for himself, and Korak wonders if she could be his beloved Meriem. The villagers take Korak, and his new lover, to a ceremony where the Chief is to be married to his newly acquired slave girl. Once at the festival, Korak is shocked to find Meriem at the side of the Chief. Korak is introduced to the great Chief. Meriem pretends not to know Korak, as the Chief brags about tomorrow night's wedding. The next morning, Korak joins the Chief in a ritual hunt against the Demon Beast. When the beast attacks the Chief, and is about to kill him, Korak swings in for the rescue and saves the man who Meriem is to wed. Feeling shamed in front of his tribe, the chief challenges Korak to a duel. After Korak binds his foe, but states he will not kill him, the Chief believes his honor is at stake and swallows a poison from his ring. The Chief is dead, and during the skirmish, Meriem has once again disappeared to an unknown land.

As the Beast-Men bind the two together and prepare the cooking pit, several Tharbans (sabertooth-like tigers) enter the camp, making the Beast-Men scatter for safety. Soon, the two heroes are alone and twist out of their binds, and escape into the dark forest. They live in the woods for the next few days, hunting for food and sleeping high above the ground in trees. Carson has also created weapons for himself and Duare, bows and arrows.
