THE STORY

Welcome to Strombringer, the concluding episode in the acclaimed
Magic Knight saga. The story so far…

In previous episodes (Spellbound and Knight Tyme) Magic Knight
rescues his friend and tutor Gimbal the Wizard from a self
inflicted White Out spell, and then finds himself catapulted into
the 25th Century aboard the starship USS Pisces. Having acquired
a secondhand time-machine from the Tyme guardians, Magic Knight
finally reaches his own time and planet – but with a slight
problem; Whilst travelling back, a serious malfunction
occurred with the secondhand time machine, and now, horror of
horrors, there are two Magic Knights!

The other Magic Knight is a real nasty piece of work. He calls
himself the “Off White Knight”, but locally he is known as the
Stormbringer because of his powerful and dangerous Storm Cloud,
which he is planning to use to destroy Magic Knight.

In your role as Magic Knight, you realise that you cannot kill
Stormbringer, because if you do, you will destroy yourself in the
process, the only way for you to become your old self again is
to merge with him. Good Luck, Magic Knight!
