SYNOPSIS:

Synopsis by CR.

Oi-lan and Cyrus, travelling in search of a new land, are captured by slavers. At the auction, Herc persuades Ioalus to help him buy Oi-Lan and set her free. The slavers doublecross the buyer and take the other captives, including Cyrus, off to Libya to resell them.

Oi-Lan sets off in pursuit of her fiance; on the road, she is accosted by thugs. She is defending herself with some nice Karate stuff when Hercules happens along to help; she reluctantly and suspiciously agrees to let him show her the road to Libya. Cyrus, who is pretty good at karate himself, meanwhile escapes, and thinking Hercules has Oi-Lan captive, tracks them down and knocks Hercules over a cliff.

The slave traders recapture Oi-Lan and Cyrus, but Hercules, recovering, frees them and after a battle they defeat the slavers. Hercules gives the young couple the land his family used to live on.

TALES OF THE HERCAVERSE
