The most relevant REH story:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadows_in_Zamboula

loads for the Conan mythos/games

city of Zamboula (cosmopolitan mixing pot)
Darfari cannibals (slaves) with filed/pointed teeth
dance of the cobras (made into a spell in the game)
Hanuman the ape god
Baal-pteor, a strangler of Hanuman from Kosala, massively muscled, huge & even larger than Conan (whom I always found to be a scary, nasty & compelling bad guy)
Evil high priest (Totrasmek)
sinister & fearsome magic, evocative of illusionists & hypnosis, used in very sinister & malevolent ways.
political intrigue, S&S style
Clever rogues abound
magic ring/gem (Star of Khorala)...D&D's first ring of human influence (although explicitly vs the opposite gender & hints of more here, but not actually used in "play")

fantastic story, pure S&S story from the man who defined what an S&S story was, and all of the elements of it are in full display.

The adventure, like "black stones", is a short, low/introductory level d20Conan adventure. It's set in the eastern desert/Zamboula area (not all that far from black stones, as Conan would roam). Do you want spoilers?
