Synopsis for "World of Warlocks!"

On a distant world away a mage named Makkador teleported an army soldier out of Vietnam to his world. Thinking it was a dream the soldier, Brian Morgan, began to play along and assisted a girl named Myrilla from three Aeritrix Riders who appeared to have kidnapped her. After freeing her the two attempted communication with one another but their languages did not match so outside of their names and what a sword is called their communication skills were limited.

Soon after a swarm of mystical bubbles poured over the two and they were transported before Makkador who explains to Brain that he was summoned by his mantle to be his champion against the Overseers of this world and that to ensure he complies he will keep the girl with him until after he assists him. Brain reluctantly agrees as he is transported away before his would be foes with the use of Makkador's Mantle, the same method of transportation they had used to get to Makkador's Castle.

Before the Overseers, gem like creatures, Brian prepared to attack. Brain felt only the slightest of tingles as he approached the creatures before a voice in his head spoke to him calling themselves the Mother Stone she along with her children explained that they were the keepers of this world and that their power only held sway of those from it. They also explained that they were the guardians keeping evil wizards like Makkador and demons from entering it's plane. Brian hearing their words agreed that he could not kill such creatures but was left with a problem as to what to do next given Myrilla is in the care of Makkador and he can not go to save her. The Mother Stone using her power transported the man of Earth back from whence he came allowing him to combat Makkador.

In Makkador's Castle Brian fought against the mage's summoned demons and imps slaying them only to then turn to Makkador himself. Makkador called upon the demonic gods he worshipped and fled the battle leaving Brian and Myrilla to leave the evil wizard's castle peacefully. Brian's only immediate goal is to learn Myrilla's language and to be with her.
