Long ago, in a magical time, a good King named Aethelred ruled a peaceful kingdom. Now his kingdom had many treasures, but its greatest prize was Princess Daphne, the King's only child. Then one dark day, Singe an evil dragon who ruled over a shadowed land, appeared in Aethelred's kingdom and demanded that the King delivery up his kingdom and people to him. When Aethelred refused Singe's vile demand, the monster kidnapped the beautiful Daphne and imprisoned her. Singe then sent Aethelred this message: Relinquish your kingdom before the setting sun or your beloved daughter will perish. Aethelred and all the people of the kingdom were plunged into despair. All except for Dirk who vowed to go and free the Princess . . . if he could survive the dungeon's many perils . . . if he could reach the Dragon's Lair . . .
