[Captain yelling]

Lower away!

[Man #1] lowering!

Easy as it goes, lads!

[Man #2]

Boats down, captain.

[Captain] very good, sir.

Shore party,

stand by to board!

[Man #1]

Shore party ready.


Over the side then.

There you go, men.

[Man #1]

You heard the captain, lads.

Cast off!

[Man narrating]

Lo you now

of days long past,

of a time when

the world was young,

when sorcery thrived

and wild adventure

was forever in the offing.

And of this epoch,

little is known,

save that which is veiled

in the mists of legendry.


It is within these mists

that our tale begins...

on tomb island,

a rocky crag perched...

at the far edge

of the world.

[Wind howling]

We're not to be disturbed.

Wait for us

at the boats.

Yes, your majesty.

Get on with it, witch!

A sword...


[Gasping continues]

[Foreign language]

[All screaming]

[Incantation in

foreign language continues]


screaming continue]

[Wind howling]


It lives!




Who art thou?

Titus cromwell,

king of aragon.

What is wished of me?

We need your help

in conquering ehdan.

It's the richest kingdom

in the world, and i want it.

Why dost thou crave

my services?

Thou art a king...

with an army.


Four times i've been defeated

by king richard of ehdan,

but with your help

i will be victorious.

And what wouldst

thou bestow upon me?

[Man] your life is enough.

After all, how can we

be sure a-a toad like you...

even has the power

to aid us?


[Growling continues]

Oh, no, dark lord.

You are my master,

my god!




As thou can see,

my art is powerful.

I will allow you to live,

as long as you serve me.

Betray me,

and i will joyfully

send you back to rot in hell,

xusia of delos.

Thou shalt have thy kingdom,

and i,

i too shall have

what should be mine.


A thousand leagues away,

the wondrous kingdom of ehdan

was celebrating 20 years

of peace...

and tranquility.

Once a haven

for barbaric plunder,

ehdan had been transformed

into a prospering

civilized nation...

by the wise and strong

king richard.


Come, richard.

We mustn't keep

everyone waiting.

What troubles you?

The nightmares.

The dreams still haunt me.

What did amilius tell

you about them?

He said...


What he said was that it's

too much of this kingly life.


Unbeknownst to them all,

cromwell's armies,

aided by xusia's black sorcery,

had already stormed

across the borders of ehdan,

leaving behind

a wake of ungodly death,

disease and destruction.

King richard is finished.

Half his army lay

rotting before us.

We can now deal with

the good king without

the aid of a sorcerer.

Besides, if we don't kill

xusia now while he's

still weak from his conjuring,

we might never be

rid of him.



Thou has sent for me?

Why, behold our hero.

Get to the point.

I'm weary.

Well, then,

you shall sleep... forever.


[Yelling continues]



Even without xusia's sorcery,

cromwell could not be stopped.

Only one army stood

between him... and the city.

[Knock on door]

Tavis! My son.

Bring a leech!



No, don't talk.

Wait for the leech.

There is no time.


The eastern army

has been destroyed.


Father, it's black...









Roust duncan.

He will ride with me.

The others i leave
