Far away in a distant galaxy, the people of the planet Prysmos lived in an age of great technology. They had taken control of all of the sources of energy, and enjoyed a life of comfort and ease for 7,000 years... but this was not to last, for the realignment of the three blazing suns of Prysmos signaled the end of the age of science and technology. When all of the electrical energy have been depleted from the world, an age of magic began. But it would take some time before men would believe this.
Years passed, and as the old order collapsed a new more primitive order rose form the rubble. Knowing that the balance of power between Darkstorm and Leoric could easily be tipped, both frantically searched for a military advantage. The ancient wizards Merklyn contacted both parties and told them that he was seeking brave knights, men and women of vision, as he wished to teach them the ways of magic.
Several knights then quest for magic, with only 14 succeeding. They were rewarded by giving them animal totems, which represented their true self in animal form. Those knights who carried staffs were also given great powers, such as Wisdom, Knowledge, Destruction, Invulnerability, Fear and a variety of others. Those knights without staffs were given the ability to empower vehicles. The two sides battle each other for control of the magic, as well as the rule of New Valarak and Prysmos.

The episode begins with Merklynn telling the Spectral Knights that due to a mis-adventure by the Darkling Lords three dangerous wizards escaped from the Magical Jail. This is in reference to the end of the episode The Overthrow of Merklynn. Merklynn blackmails the Spectral Knights onto going on a quest for him.
Leoric says he has no reason to send his knights, their staffs are fully charged and their towns are thriving. Merklynn informs Leoric that the state of their towns could change. After agreeing Merklynn tells them of the wizards he wishes them to track down. They are the treatous Falkama (who was in Episode 3 Quest For The Dragons Eye), the compulsive liar Weazaskweaza (who was seen at the end of the episode The Overthrow Of Merkylnn) and finally the mysterious Bogavas, who Merklynn has not know to commit evil but who he also wants bought in. None of the wizards are to find The Lost Shrine.
The Spectral Knights head of to the Anarchy Zone where it is rumoured that the Lost Shrine may be. Upon arriving the Ectar 'questions' a Dwarf-like character regarding the location the three wizards. They are told one is in Dead Bark, a 'wild west type town', another is dressed as a monk and the third bought some slaves and headed to Mount Bellacost.
