Subotai


N WIND 20 TO 25 KT WITH GUSTS TO 30 KT. WIND WAVES 5 FT. NW SWELL 6 FT AT 7 SECONDS... SUBSIDING TO 3 FT AT 8 SECONDS.
Conan: What gods do you pray to?
Subotai: I pray to the four winds... and you? Conan:
To Crom... but I seldom pray to him, he doesn't listen.

Conan: [chuckles] Crom laughs at your four winds. He laughs from his mountain.
Subotai: My god is stronger. He is the everlasting sky! Your god lives underneath him.

I still think it kicks ass...
