BackgroundPoor King Trode has been turned into a troll, his daughter Princess Medea into a horse and his subjects into brambles. His kingdom, Trodain, is frozen in time.
The story begins as you, the hero (one of the King's guards), and your eccentric band King Trode, the Princess and a reformed bandit named Yangus arrive at the town of Farebury in search of an evil jester named Dhoulmagus. He is the madman responsible for stealing a forbidden sceptre from King Trode's castle and cursing the whole kingdom. Now he roams the land killing innocent victims.
United by a common goal, characters Jessica and Angelo join the party on a quest to bring the devilish Dhoulmagus to justice.
