It this point the whole planet was sucked dry of its electrical energy and every piece of technology stopped working. The Age of Technology ended and the Age of Magic began. The old order collapsed and two primitive orders rose. One led by a good and noble man (Leoric) and the other by an evil, scheming man (Dark Storm). This was a time of Knights & Castles, but still magic was not believed in. Merklynn the wizard appeared before both orders and said that the whoever reached the Magical Shrine on Iron Mountain would be rewarded with magic beyond their wildest dreams. Dark Storm dismissed this challenge, as there was no such thing as magic, but Leoric listened. Once Dark Storm's spy (Mortdred) had told him of Leoric's interest then he also took up the challenge.   The Knights from both orders were warned that the way to the shrine was littered with traps and only the best Kights would reach it. Some turned back, others failed, but a few made it, even the ones who battled against Dark Storm's dirty tricks. The ones that made it, Merklynn said they had the vision to reach the shrine and that they are the Visionaires. given symbol of Each Knight who made it to the shrine was magical powers. On the Knights' chest plate a an animal appeared, which matched their skill and when animal. Also he told the Knights that carried staffs' to dip them in a magical pool, these were then charged with special power. After a number of uses these staffs' would lose their power and they would have to be recharged at the Magical Shrine. The Knights that didn't have staffs' were told that they would discover their hidden power in time.   Dark Storm then formed the Darkling Lords and declared war on Leoric and his Spectral Knights. Dark Storm constantly tries to steal the Spectral Knights' Power Staffs and steal their Magical Totums. He is an ambitious man and even had the audacity to overthrow Merklynn, but this path lead to disaster and the release of three dangerous wizards - Falkama, Weazaskweaza and Bogavas. The Spectral Knights love to shout - 'May the Light Shine Forever'.
