In a distant land, long, long ago there once lived a prince who was righteous, just, noble and honourable – but confronted by incredibly evil lords. Dark and treacherous powers joined together to spread darkness and evil over the land and to banish the prince from the principality and the thoughts of his people. Then a spell by the lords banished the prince to another dimension - but not from the memory and hearts of the people.

From now on his task would be to drive out the evil lords from power and to allow peace and order to return. A bitter fight against the powers of evil is now imminent…
