In earlier times, back before the "GOLDEN AGE", lawlessness and unrest were prevalent throughout the land and malevolence stalked hand-in-hand with greed. These were times when it was not the size of a man's wealth that portrayed his status but how long he managed to keep hold of it. When gold was "safer" spent than hoarded and when a man's best bedside companion was his sword and not some comely wench. Such was the unrest...

However, all this was to change when Arcon made the ultimate sacrifice to the Gods and in return was given the "STAFF OF POWER"... Infused with magic, this staff could be used for both "Good" and "Evil" purposes, but Arcon chose the former. Peace and serenity came to the land and joyful times were had by all. Arcon ruled the land wisely and the people considered themselves to be fortunate indeed. Each morning they gave thanks to the Gods for furnishing Arcon with the staff and for allowing him to rule the land.

But one man was not so happy... Zyx the evil magician had other plans for the staff and the land and one day, disguised as a beggar, he took the staff from Arcon. With the staff in his grasp he revealed himself in his true form and vowed to destroy the king and his kingdom..........

A meeting of the council was held and YOU were chosen to recover the stolen artefact and if necessary destroy the evil Zyx. However, to do this it is imperative that you first locate the four magical weapons... a sword, a shield, a ring and a warhorn. Your only "ally", if such a word can be used, is your knowledge of magic and your ability to cast spells... Use this wisely and you might just recover the weapons required to defeat Zyx and recover the STAFF OF POWER.


The Amstrad and Commodore 64 versions of this game were converted and published by The Adventure Workshop.

Later reworked and expanded for 16-bit systems as Oklib's Revenge.
