||How long Conan lay senseless he never knew. His first sensation of returning consciousness was that of being dragged by one arm over rough and stony ground, and through dense underbrush. Then he was thrown carelessly down, and perhaps the jolt brought back his senses.

Ropes have dozens of uses, but the most common in the Exiled Lands is the binding and capture of thralls. Once an enemy is rendered unconscious, their ankles are bound with rope and they are dragged into captivity.
Ropes abrade on sharp stones and unravel often. The stronger the material of the rope, the further the captive can be dragged.
