Suffer No Guilt Yee Who Wield This In the Name of Crom
Holy crap it actually does say that. I've been watching the 1982 Conan the Barbarian film at least twice a year for the last 34 years, and until I flipped the frame, I never realized what the runes on Conan's father sword said (or in fact that they said anything at all). SUFFER NO GUILT YEE WHO WIELD THIS IN THE NAME OF CROM. It's nice to find that I can still be surprised. :-)
I've stared at those runes for many years an never got it. I'm really impressed that they thought to put this kind of detail into the film. Just one more reason that Conan the Barbarian remains my favorite S&S film of all time. I really can't wait for the Modiphius Conan RPG. Crom!
