Silver's story is a familiar one as video game adventures go. The game's title character is a wicked sorcerer-emperor who oversees the world of Jarrah with an iron fist and a hard heart. One day, Silver orders that all the fair maidens of the land be brought before him so that he can SELECT a new bride. His minions then round up Jarrah's female population for Silver's ghastly perusal; needless to say, the male half isn't pleased. The player takes control of David, a kindly, if stereotypically blonde, knight whose wife Jennifer was among the captured. David strikes out, full of vim and vigor, to stop Silver and retrieve the women. On his journey, David learns that Silver is trying to strike a deal with the evil god Apocalypse, and thus his quest gains even greater import. David also learns that only the combined power of eight magical orbs, which have been lost for years, can defeat Silver, and thereafter most of the game is devoted to obtaining these orbs. This isn't the most generic plotline ever, but it sure isn't Dickens, either. Add one part Final Fantasy, two parts Legend of Zelda, and stir.
