Synopsis

Plot

After the old king died, the evil sorceress Smyrna usurped the throne and used her black magic to imprison the young princess Shareen. Smyrna now rules the kingdom of Eternia unopposed.

The mighty wizard Artek had foreseen these events. Before he died, he forged three rings of power strong enough to overcome the black magic of the evil queen Smyrna. He carefully hid the three rings in different locations so that Smyrna could not find them.

It is your task to find the three rings of Artek, rescue the fair princess Shareen, destroy the evil sorceress Smyrna and thereby restore the kingdom to its rightful heir. There are many obstacles to overcome but help can be obtained from some of the characters you meet.

Smyrna has her spies and she knows that you are searching for the rings. She has therefore sent out her evil "all seeing eye" that will search out and destroy you if it manages to locate you. The only protection against the eye is a powerful charm that you need to possess. This will give you protection against everything that could otherwise destroy you. However, other charms will be needed for you to vanquish some of your foes.

The ghost of Artek also moves around in the game. Each time be bumps into you, he will give you some advice. You can also call upon him at various points when all else seems lost.
