Not even in the movie. It was Arnold, but he was playing Lord Kalidor, not Conan.

I am shamed at forgetting Belit.

But the historical story Aramax is talking about is referenced on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shadow_of_the_Vulture#Red_Sonya.2FRed_Sonja and, as far as I knew, the only thing Howard ever wrote about a Sonya character.

I stand corrected. Aramax be right. Red Sonya of Rogatino, a 16th century tale.

I am mad that I missed the Exalted question because I love the setting and materials that go with the game, plus about a two foot tall stack of books for it.

Seems like the Citadel roleplaying community has willfully purged her from their memory.

Just as well. The woman, Lorraine Williams, claimed she was socially superior to gamers, which she considered little but neckbeard cows to be milked of their cash by the means of whatever crappy product necessary. In many ways she was the harbinger of the end of the tabletop era.

Good attempt, Aramax, but a little too far from the mark.

She also produced crappy Buck Rogers content, which TSR paid a hefty licensing fee for to.... her! Her family owns the rights to buck rogers. So she is not only a disgusting cow who looks down on gamers, she was happy to f u c k  TSR to make a bit more money for herself.
