I know that their idea of "honor" would not be the same as ours. Conan is known for barbarian type behavior such as theivery, womanizing, and killing pretty much anything that annoys him. At the same time he has always been called more of an anti-heor than villain. I take that to mean that if he steals from someone they are probable not a nice person to begin with. Does not engage in wholesale slaughter on farming peasents just for the fun of it. And honors a deal with someone as long as they don't try and back stab him. He might even go out of his way to help some poor smuck who is down on his luck.
Am I right in thinking around these lines?
What about Red Sonja?
Also, does anybody know of any good collection of stories of each of them one should get started on?
