Based on the story by Conan creator, Robert E. Howard, this has warrior Cormac Fitzgeoffrey fighting in the Middle East during the Crusades. He walks into a tavern and meets with an old friend, who thought him dead. Then, he recounts some stories, such as how he saved King Richard in battle, then insulted him. Then, made friends with a French noble, Lord Gerard, and then killed the German Baron who refused to help him in time of need. Although the man was separate from him by a moat and surrounded by soldiers, he still slays him by throwing an axe into his head. He goes by his own moral code. Then, he meets up with a squire, half dead, who explains how Gerard really died--and that he's partially responsible. He had fallen in love with a woman, who was ordered to woo Gerard but the squire and her fell in love instead. When her death is threatened the two went to rescue her and Gerard was killed and the squire tortured and left hung to die. It's up to Hawk to go in and set everything right.
This is definitely along the lines of Howard's Conan and Kull and Hawk could be a descendent of both. Recommended.
