The future of Llzn Cerrig had looked bleak. The evil and twisted Queen Bahd had imprisoned the Fairy guardians of the Realm, a place of great natural beauty and wonder, so that she could set about draining the very life-force from the land to sustain her aged body.
In desperate attempt one fairy had managed to enlist the help of the Stormlord to free them from the clutches of the evil Crone and rid the land from the threat of desolation she imposed. He succeeeded in his mission but was unable to slay the Queen, who managed to escape to lands unknown.
Many years of peace and harmony passed, and all was well within Llyn Cerrig. Little did the Fairies know, but the harmony of The Realm was soon to be broken by a terrible Darkness which smothered the land for a full 40 days. Panic and confusion spread throughout and was added by the sudden realisation that as each darkened day passed the colony was getting smaller - Fairy-folk were simply vanishing. Word soon spread through the remaining Fairies that the Evil Queen Bahd had returned to ravish the land, this time in league with the Devil himself! Together with his many evil minions they were again snatching and imprisoning The Realms' Fairy guardians in order to leave it bare of defence, and their ultimate mercy... The days passed and eventually all the Fairy-folk were captured and imprisoned deep within Satan's Palace. The Darkness was lifted from the land and the Crone Queen set about draining the precious life- force from it, transforming it into wasteland... Aim of the Game --------------- As the Stormlord, you have been given the task of locating, freeing and then delivering the inprisioned Fairies from Satan's Palace, through the Pits of Hell, the Enchanted Forest and the Devil-ridden skies of Heaven where the amassed power of the rescued Fairy-folk and the pure energy of goodness can join to overcome the forces of Evil which are destroying The Realm. To help you in your task you have geen given an unlimited supply of Battle-axes and a set of Opal markers to help you navigate your way out of Hell and into Heaven. You will be attacked by many of the Devils varied henchmen who will try different ways to kill you. You have 3 lives with which to com- plete your task. At the end of every section of your quest you will face a fearsome guardian who must be slain for you journey to conti- nue - each of these has a week-spot where it can be destroyed. It is up to you to identify it. If you lose energy you can take a rest (stand still) - your energy will them slowly build up. A better way to gain energy is to collect the coins that are dropped by dying enemies or are found in clusters. To collect a coin simply walk into it. To collect a Fairy, once it is visible simply touch it. Collect the Cherubs in Level 4 to power up your weapons! (simply fly into them).
