Amra is named after Conan, who called himself by that name when he was a pirate.
Amra is about various heroes, mostly of sword & sorcery stories set in fantasy worlds. Amra was started as the organ of the Hyborian Legion, a group of Conan admirers who met annually at the World Science Fiction Convention; Legion membership was open to all interested parties who showed up.
