Thoran of Malveel:
All you're sniffing after is gold. A wizard who changes iron to gold. I have different reasons.
Oh, great hero, pardon me for wanting gold! But where I grew up, all we dreamed of was food and gold. Nothing honorable like your great quest for kinghood, but our bellies! Maybe you could teach me a thing or two about honor, but I could teach you lots about plain old survival.

The original pilot's ending was longer than a later version. 1. After Estra splits from Tohran and Slant, Gar is shown to have escaped. 2. Celebration in Kamal after Tohran and Slant return. 3. Lazar-sa speaks to Tohran and Slant via the hawk. 4. Closing shot of Tohran and Slant starting the quest to find Lazar-sa. See more »
I remember seeing this film when it was first broadcast on tv. If memory serves, it was the first of what was supposed to be a series of specials, which would advance the story. Unfortunately, it didn't do well and became the only installment.
I thoroughly enjoyed it initially. It had a great villain and unique concepts. The acting was bad in certain cases (oh, George Kennedy, what were you doing?) but for the most part, it was watchable.
I later found it at a video store and rented it. I was less impressed the second time around, but still found it entertaining. It was vastly superior to most of the other attempts at sword & sorcery films from that era, with the exception of the first Conan.
It was a shame that the series didn't continue, as I always wondered what the intended conclusion was supposed to be. If you enjoy fantasy, give it a try.
