Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light (1987): Season 1, Episode 2 - The Dark Hand of Treachery - full transcript

It is a time when magic is
more powerful than science.

And only those who control the magic,

control destiny.

They,
are the Visionaries.

Visionaries,
Knights of the Magical Light

Visionaries,
with Magical Powers they fight

Powers of mind,
strength, skill, 'n' speed

Powers to accomplish
the greatest of deeds

Visionaries,
Knights of the Magical Light

Far away in a distant galaxy,

the people of the planet Prysmos
enjoyed the life of ease and comfort,



But, this was not to last.

for the realignment of the
three blazing suns,

signaled the end of the age
of technology.

Scientists are at lost to explain,

the disruption of
technology across the planet.

But authorities warns
against panicking...

And a beginning of
a new age of Magic.

as the old order collapsed,

the good kingdoms formed
a Confederacy led by Leoric.

Herold, Ectar.

To Arm!

While the evil kingdoms fell
under the brutal hand of Darkstorm.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha.

It was then,
that a mysterious wizard named Merklynn,



told the knights of a great
shrine filled with magic.

Magic of every description.

The bravest among them
set out to test their skills.

But only a few survived the ordeal,
and became, Visionaries.

Congratulations!
Noble Knights.

You have survived
the final test.

You, are,
The Visionaries!

They were vested with
animal totems and power staffs,

which gave them
strange amazing abilities.

But not even Magic would
bring peace to this wotton world.

The young women is,

The evil Knight,
Virulina!

Ahh!

My power is fading.

Would that be all?

Yes,
that will be all.

Darkling lords,
Attack!

Arrgghh!

Naaa!

I'll take that.

So easily was the
Knight evil to birds snared.

Ha ha ha ha ha.

I suspect I will run out of sturdy
shackles and prison chains.

Reekon and Mortdred.

Scour the junkyard
for some strong metal,

the rest of you must return
with me to the war room.

If we had magical power staffs,

we would not have been
relegated to this degrading lake.

But Reekon,
any work is exerted,

as long as it is done in the
name of the great Darkstorm.

Were you born to be a bootlegger,

or did you pick up the
trade in your early manhood?

To insult Darkstorm's minisurab
loyalty, is to insult the exerted one

Darkstorm must have honor.

Put away your weapon,
and do not embarrass yourself.

NO!
You must pay the penalty for your insult.

Ahhh!

Argh!

Yahh!

Sounds like...
Like a motor.

That is impossible!
Motors aren't support to work anymore.

You have another explanation?

It must be an hallucination!

Let see if it flies!

Argh,

Ugh.

Brace yourselves.

Do you think we have the ability to
infuse other vehicles with magic?

Yes!

This must be the great
power Merklynn promised us.

Reekon, we must tell
Darkstorm immediately.

He is going to have to
pay it big for my services.

Wretched mercenary.

When Cryotek and Witterquick have fallen,

we will have all the Magic we
need to assault New Valarak.

You erratic idiots!

Argh,
what have we here?

I must drive it myself.

Ahhh...

What happened?

The engine works,
but the Magic avoids me.

It appears that any
Visionary can pilot a vehicle.

But Mortdred and I, are your only Knights
who can breath Magic into the metal.

Yes... You see worthy master, I
will be quite valuable to you after all.

Or to Leoric if he pays better.

What the...

Sheathe these feet in the driving gale,
Make swift these legs o'er land I sail!

Ha haha.

No good having the power of light
speed if we know your destination.

Sheathe these feet in the driving gale,
Make swift these legs o'er land I sail.

Oh oh...

- My staff's out of power.
- Pity!

He haaaa!

He he he he.

Already two of the
spectral Knights have fallen.

And soon the rest shall be in my grasp.

Things go my way.

Ugh!

Arghh!

You will regret this,
you fool!

Galadria...

I should have known, nobody else could
have taken me by such complete surprise.

Agh..

Ahhh....

I wanted to see you one last
time before returning Androsia.

You need not to worry.

We will have many
adventures together.

Stop firing!

I want them captures,
not incinerated.

Three suns aligned, pour forth their light
and fill the archer's bow with might!"

The arrows turn, the swords rebel,
may nothing pierce this mortal shell!

Their Magic,
neutralized yours!

Than I spent my last arrows.

We don't stand a chance.

When I give the word,
dive into the Ice water.

Swim to New Valarak,
and tell they were at my feet.

Get them!

Whaa...

Ugh!

Eughh...

Argh....

Ugh.

Eaghh...

Run for it!

(GROWL)

Stop her!

STOP HER!

Virulina,
GET HER!

Can't hold his Bear form much longer.

NOW!
CHAIN HIM!

Argh!

Put him aboard.

Ugh...

Your orders were
to capture Galadria.

- It appears that you failed.
- Ahhh...

Maybe I had her, but decided to
let her go because I don't trust YOU!

Trust?
It is I who demand trust.

It would be madness to hand
over a power staff to a shark.

Who cannot destroy a dolphin.

Darkstorm,
I will neither forget, nor forgive this.

- he he ha ha ha
- ha ha ha ha ha ha

He haha ha ha ha

And then, when we though
we were lost in the labyrinth,

Yes...
Feryl started sniffing,

(SNIFF)

(SNIFF-SNIFF)

Only have to do,
is follow his nose to the shrine.

- ha ha ha ha
- haha ha ha ha

TELL US,
of the Magic,

Ah!
It is wondrous.

With it,
we can do great things for civilization.

If... it can be,
controlled.

Gentlemen,
I hate to destroy your festivities, but,

Cryotek has been captured
by Darkstom and his Knights.

This is what comes of
peace treaties with Darkstorm.

Our intentions were the best.

It would come as
little surprise to me,

to learn that Arzon and Witterquick
were also in grave danger.

Well that's your thoughts,

Leoric,
what are yours?

Hmm...

There is no easy answer.

Let us see what my
power staff consuls.

Whispered secrets of a shattered
age, I summon you, renew this sage!

Become ONE with
the circle of light.

What do you mean by that?

What,
can he mean?

I wonder if you might consider a
new power staff from Merklynn?

No!

It has to mean something,
I know it!

We just have to figure out what.

Until we do,
the parapets must be mend at all time.

We can expect a vicious onslaught.

Enemy approaching.

And in vehicles.

Can you make them out Feryl?

- They're not animal powered.
- That's impossible.

They are definitely machine powered.

One of them seems to be flying.

I expected a thundering army.

I see only six Darkling lords.

Six?
hehe.

I know not whether to cheer their provado,
or feel insulted.

- They stopped!
- I wonder what for...

Shall I die now, I want all to remember
that I have undertaken this deed,

for love of my master, and king,
Darkstorm!

You shall live forever in
the hall of valor, Mortdred.

- Where's the hall of valor?
- Quite, idiot. Catapult him!

Argh!

Agh!

Darkstorm demands the surrender of,
New Valarak.

Hahaha, tell Darkstorm, that we are
less than impressed by his show of force.

Well, allright...
And how am I to, get back?

Yahhhh....

Eghh...

It's if it...
It seems he has refused our offer.

What did you expect you idiot?

Why are we wasting time?

Let's go in there and crush them,

before I take my aggressions out,
ON ALL OF YOU!

It's alright Crevex,
we will commence the assault.

Cindar,
unleash the beast.

By nature's hand, by craft, by art,
what once was one now fly apart!

What is it?!

There gonna to be little question about it,
Leoric.

Merklynn gave you a bad power staff.

(GROWL)

(GROWL)

There's no stopping it.

(GROWL)

(GROWL)

Power staff not last very long.

FOOL.
Then use you animal totem!

(BELCHES)

(BELCHES)

(BELCHES)

(BELCHES)

(BELCHES)

(MEOW)

Cindar!
What are you doing?

- There is a cat here somewhere.
- A, what?!

A Cat!

Cindar,
Who cares?!

I'm sorry,
I meant no harm...

We must see if that wizard Merklynn
has a spell to remove Cindar's compassion.

Arrrrrgh!

Ahhh...

Get back in the barrel Lexor!
Or suffer my wrath...

Ye-Yes, Darkstorm...

(GROWL)

Ahhh!

(GROWL)

Mortdred,
take him to the detention cell.

Hang on Feryl!

- Ahhh
- Yahhh

Eeyahhh...

Yahh!

Ahh.

Oh mist-filled pits, dark, dank, unclear.
Touch all before me with frost-fingered fear!

Agh!
Ah...

Ah!

(INSECT SOUNDS)

(SCREAM)

Ah!

Egh...
It's a tidal wave!

RUN!

GALADRIA!
You're hallucinating!

Hurry!
We'll all drown!

Hurry!
Hurry!

Ahh...
H-Hur-ryyy...

Only a fool will press further...

Then call me a fool!

Eeyyahhhh....

There!

Ugh..

Ectar,
take the power staff.

You must keep it,
from the Darkling lords.

Arrghh.

Egh!

Ugh..

Yeagh!

(SNARL)

(BARKS)

Welcome,
Knights of New Valarak.

I would like to release
you from your bars,

but first you must
swear allegiance to me.

You really ought to, do something
about your insecurity,

you've got a real problem.

Problem?

We shall see who has a problem.
Throw him into the magical dungeon.

Remove him.

They've stolen his totem!

To avoid a similar fate...

You WILL all swear allegiance to me,
NOW!

- NEVER.
- N-NEVER!

I expected as much...

Therefore,
I will give you time to think about it.

Let them contemplate their bleak futures,
and the dank silence of my dungeon!

Oh...
How merciful our leader is.

Ogh!

I think we're in,
trouble.

Agh!

I think we're in,
deeper trouble.

Ough!

I think we're in,
deepest trouble.

Arghhh!

- It's hopeless!
- It is never hopeless.

Well,
almost never.

(CROWD MURMURING)

Quite.
Quite!

Show respect for the
exalted Darkstorm.

I know there are many rumors circulating
about, why I have called you all together.

Some of those rumors say that I
plan to take away your property,

and even children.

I do like plan to take anything.

But,
I do not have to.

All you own is already mine...

Including your WRETCHED LIVES.

You and your fancy Magic,
do not scare me!

I will fight you to the
last ounce of my strength!

Return to the swamp you came from!

Let me attempt to
change your opinion of me.

By what creeps, what crawls, by what does
not. Let all that grows recede and rot!

- Ohhh!
- Ahhh...

We have no hope against Darkstorm...

But I am a kind and
compassionate ruler.

I will take a vote.

All in favor of returning
this man to normal will say,

"Darkstorm is master of all."

- Darkstorm is master of all...
- D-Darkstorm is master of all.

AGAIN!

- DARKSTORM IS MASTER OF THEM ALL...
- D-Darkstorm is master of all.

Power of rot, obscuring truth,
what once was old restore to youth!

IF you do not swear
allegiance to Darkstorm,

you will suffer a lifetime of torment!

You mean we will be forced to
listen to your irritating chatter?

There is nothing wrong
with my speaking voice!

Good work Ectar,
you got rid of him!

That may have been the most successful
thing we've done in quite some time!

There is no denying it.
This is our darkest hour.

There is nothing wrong with my voice,
I will show them!

Death to those who
would offend me!

Wait...

Remember the wisdom given
to me by my power staff?

Yes. Something cryptic about,
becoming one with the circle of light!

That's right!

To become one with the circle of light,
is to form a brotherhood.

A true,
lasting alliance.

I propose, that right now,
we form the Spectral Knights.

A secret order, dedicated to bringing
light to the darkness of our world.

May the light shine,
forever!

- May the light shine, forever!
- M-May the light shine, forever!

- Ugh...
- Oghh...

He he he...
See how your light shines underwater..
