View-Master 3D

This View-Master story is supposed to be about the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon and although it features Venger and Tiamat the heroes seem inconsequential with only Eric and Hank being named and with Presto, Bobby, Uni and the Dungeon Master omitted altogether. The story seems to be little more than an action figure advert for Strongheart, Elkhorn, Mercion and Ringlerun. Oddly, Venger has enslaved Tiamat the dragon.

Strongheart Good Paladin and his worthy band of adventures climb craggy rocks to the castle stronghold of the evil Venger. Strongheart urges his troops over the walls of the castle. Seeing humans advance upon his legions, Venger hisses "I will summon a special servant," and an Earth Elemental ponderously rises from the courtyard. In turn, Ringlerun Good Wizard conjures an Air Elemental. Defeated, the Earth Elemental fails; but the battling warriors, both good and evil, are overwhelmed by these elements. Elkhorn Dwarf Fighter and the remainder of the adventures storm the keep of Venger's castle. Fighting monsters all the way, they discover a secret treasure chest, and inside the chest, a glowing amulet - the source of Venger's power. The troops reunite in the courtyard where venger summons his most powerful monster, Tiamat. Breathing fire, Tiamat advances. Strongheart, wearing the amulet, poises his sword for battle. Then suddenly succumbing to Ringlerun's magic, the massive Tiamat falters. Venger and his monster flees the land leaving Strongheart's crew victorious in the castle - the kingdom at least is at peace freed from the curse of "Castle Venger!"
