About The Visionaries

Far away in a distant galaxy, the people of the planet Prysmos lived in an age of great technology. They had taken control of all of the sources of energy, and enjoyed a life of comfort and ease for 7,000 years... but this was not to last, for the realignment of the three blazing suns of Prysmos signaled the end of the age of science and technology. When all of the electrical energy have been depleted from the world, an age of magic began. But it would take some time before men would believe this.

Years passed, and as the old order collapsed a new more primitive order rose form the rubble. Knowing that the balance of power between Darkstorm and Leoric could easily be tipped, both frantically searched for a military advantage. The ancient wizards Merklyn contacted both parties and told them that he was seeking brave knights, men and women of vision, as he wished to teach them the ways of magic.

Several knights then quest for magic, with only 14 succeeding. They were rewarded by giving them animal totems, which represented their true self in animal form. Those knights who carried staffs were also given great powers, such as Wisdom, Knowledge, Destruction, Invulnerability, Fear and a variety of others. Those knights without staffs were given the ability to empower vehicles. The two sides battle each other for control of the magic, as well as the rule of New Valarak and Prysmos.

The Overthrow of Merklynn

* The actual product number for this episode was 87-10-08-06 according to the scripts, which is the same number as the previous episode. This should really have been 87-10-08-06

The episode starts with Darkstorm grumbling about how he has to travel to Iron Mountain in order to recharge their powers. Whilst grumbling to Mortdredd they remember that they have a wizard in their dungeon, Falkama (captured in the third episode). Falkama tells them of a powerful book, known as the Omnipoticron which can be found in the Athenaeum. If they can get that and Merklynn's orb then they will gain the power to defeat Merklynn.

Falkama then takes the Darkling Lords to the Athenaeum and they managed to collect the book, although it is guarded by a dragon called Smallog. After gaining the book Falkama informs Darkstorm that they need some wizardsbane, although he knows exactly where to find it.
