Gorbash! Gorbash! Come!

There was time between the

waning age of enchantment

and the dawning age of logic

when dragons flew the skies.

Free and unencumbered.

Look down there Gorbash, my friend!

On that troubled earth below us,

confusion and chaos reign.

All mankind is facing an epic choice.

A world of magic or a world of science.

Which will it be?

d Flight of dragons d

d soar in the purple light d

d In the sky d

d or in my mind d

d Flight of dragons d

d sail past reality d

d Leave illusion d

d behind d

d Is it the past d

d I see d

d When I look up to the heavens d

d Believing in the magic d

d That I know could never be d

d I want to go where they are going d

d Into the world they've been d

d Can I open up my mind d

d enough to see d

d Flight of dragons, d

d heavenly argosies d

d Catch the wind, d

d rise out of sight d

d Flight of dragons, d

d pilots of fantasy d

d In the sky d

d or in my mind d

d Flight of dragons d

d Flight of dragons d

This cannot be.

The worlds of magic and logic

must exist side by side.

Not destroy each other.

Take care!

Be careful with your

machines I say.

Who is making all that rumpus?

It's that balmy old gent

what lives upstream.

Your motors must not

crowd out all magic.

For the world is lost.

How sort of magician I hear?

I am Carolinus!

The Green Wizard.

Your loony you are. Get

back to where you belong.

I belong everywhere, for my

domain is the green world.

Nature itself and all its inhabitants!

Envatos... Umabella... Flamenca...

Away with your mill wheel.

A ball of blue magic to make it disappear.

Disappear say I!


Magic he calls it.

My little boy could do better.

- Father you need rest.

- No time.

Just was not there.

I called upon magic and there was none.


- The pain again?

- I can't let it bother me.

Have you written the

messages as I asked?

Yes father, but...

Then summoned The Silver

Owls Of The Full Moon.

- But...

- Summoned them I say!

Is it true?

Did they stone you?

Well, me and young Gorbash will fix um'...

We'll burn down that mill and

devour every living one of them.

That would do no good.

Just a little scared then... uh?

A short fiery blast to turn

their hair white uh?

Smrgol, please!

Father, the owls.

Smrgol, I'm summoning my

brothers to a meeting.

Our first in four centuries.


Ommadon too?

The ancient laws command he be included.

Make Gorbash ready for the journey

to the Temple Of All Antiquity.

I wish I could carry you, old friend.

No, you serve me well as the past.

Let young Gorbash bear your burdens now.

Father, who are these brothers?

You never spoken to me of them.

I know you are Green

Wizard Of Nature Realm.

But the others?

My brother Solarius, is the Blue Wizard.

Lord of the depths and the heights.

He's realm is outer space,

deepest ocean, highest mountain.

My brother calls council, but why?

Lunarian! Lunarian!

And my brother Lo Tae Zhao.

The Golden Wizard.

His realm is light and air.

He is lord of transcendence,

healing, contemplation.

I was expecting this, it was inevitable.

Shen Zu, Shen Zu!

And finally, high in Loathly Tower.

My last brother,


The Red Wizard.

Lord of the devils domain,

seducer of darkness,

master of that heartless

magic the world calls black.

Bryagh, Bryagh!

My fool brother has just

realized the inevitable.

Well, I'll go.

It should prove amusing.

Bryagh I say!

Astride the terrible Bryagh,

he is absolute ruler

of that infernal like mass of

primordial filth which is his domain.

But why does Antiquity force you to

include something so abominable?
