Chosen warriors enter the Temple of Hope with their guide Zott. Inside the temple, time itself is compressed and altered so that the warriors could have training experience of 100 of years within only half the time. This process is almost instantaneous, however Zott’s calculations were wrong and all of the planes Stones of Creation were gathered by an evil force. With their power he exiled the one he did not control, and that was the opal of hope. Since the hero’s are linked by the opal, they too were exiled from the realm. During this time the evil force know as the Dark Lord rules the plane and made it into a twisted world of evil. 500 years later the hero’s somehow have been wished back into existence bursting out of statues of themselves.
