This Sword-and-Sorcery adventure series is set in a Golden Age. The kingdom Camarand is imperilled by Prince Dirk Blackpool, ruler of a nearby land, who uses black Magic and military force in his efforts to invade. Blackpool is constantly thwarted by the good Prince Erik Greystone, who is engaged to the king's daughter.

Each episode featured some sort of magical element. Many were conjured up by Vector, an evil Wizard in the service of Blackpool. Unknown to Blackpool, though, was Vector's secret desire to seize the throne himself, a factor that made some of his Spells less than reliable. Throughout, Greystone could be counted on to thwart Blackpool's and Vector's plans, and those of the other wizards, witches and demons encountered along the way. [BC]
