  • Quotes (8)

    • Darkstorm: You see to have a problem, cliff dweller! Arzon: It is not a problem. It is a cleverly disguised opportunity.

    • Galadria: If it weren't for your vulgar perfume, I mightn't have known you were sneaking behind me! Virulina: I wasn't sneaking; I was trying to avoid seeing your wretched face.

    • Darkstorm: (walking into a dungeon full of shackled sceletons) Well, what a beautiful exhibit - this must be the art gallery! (a skeleton blows out Darkstorm's torch) Darkstorm: Fie.

    • (each shouting over distance and through walls) Darkstorm: Where are you, Mortdredd? Mortdredd: I don't know, Master! Darkstorm: You are useless! Mortdredd: I know, Master!

    • Merklin: The age of science is over, and the age of magic has began.

    Trivia (3)

    • In the Maze scene, Feryl repels a spider with a pincer-like weapon which crackles with energy. Since technology no longer functioned and magic was not yet acquired, this should not have been possible.

    • While Arzon questions the Bearer of Knowledge about the young maiden, his magical totem momentarily vanishes.

    • When Leoric raises his power staff, his glove is missing.
