of years ago the evil "Green Witches" were menacing
the land of Aquitania, neighbouring country to the kingdom of
Kerovnia. In a desperate attempt to rid the land from the menace
of the witches the magician Turani created an enchanted bracelet
with five magical charms attached to it. Not only acted the
bracelet as a powerful antidote against the notorious "Green
Witches of Aquitania", rendering them relatively harmless,
it also considerably increased good fortune in the country,
meaning that no harm would ever come to any citizen of Aquitania.
the end of his life Turani handed over the task of direction
of luck to the "Guardians", immortal, demi-god-like
beings with an affection for moustaches, herringbone overcoats
and cheese sandwiches.
their magic powers greatly reduced, the witches had accepted
their fate and confined themselves to practical jokes, meetings
and charitable works. But recently a witch named Jannedor Nasty
has been using her influence to overthrow the powers of the
bracelet. To weaken its powers Jannedor persuaded five aquitanian
citizens to each remove and conceal a charm from the bracelet.
With the bracelet completely stripped of its charms, its powers
are running out fast - in other words: Aquitania is running
out of luck and the witches are gaining back their powers.
this is where you jump in. Thinking that, after a nasty incident
involving your car, a little old lady and a trolley-load of
budget dog food, your day couldn't get any worse, you're just
about to get run over by a tremendously big bus. Right in front
of your own garden gate. As you're busy saying your final prayers,
trying to come to terms with imminent death, you feel somebody
grabbing you by the collar and throwing you on the side of the
road, thus saving you from certain death.
you recover from your experience you see a Guardian, complete
with moustache, herringbone-overcoat and a cheese sandwich,
hovering gracefully before you. The Guardian explains that you
have been appointed to find the missing charms, gain access
to and re-assemble the "Bracelet of Turani", destroy
the evil witch Jannedor and restore luck to the country. Before
you can object or ask any questions the Guardian hands you a
document and vanishes into thin air, leaving you completely
confused and bewildered behind.
like you are left with no choice but to save the whole country
of Aquitania from impending doom ... how exactly? Well, you
have to figure that out all by yourself. But with a little imagination
and all the remaining luck in the country this shouldn't be
an impossible task. 'Narmean?
