In your late youth you left home to join the Guild of Enchanters. After
years of schooling, you achieved the rank of Apprentice Enchanter. In
fulfilment of an ancient prophecy, you were sent to find Krill, an evil
warlock who had loosed a pestilence upon the land, and who threatened the
very existence of the Circle of Enchanters. Only someone guileless and
inexperienced in the ways of magic could slip into Krill's realm unnoticed.
By defeating Krill, you earned a seat on the Circle of Enchanters, sitting
at the right hand of your mentor, the leader of the Guild, Belboz the
Necromancer. Several years have passed, and you have grown very close to
Belboz as you studied under his tutelage, learning the ways of magic from
one of the world's most learned practitioners. But lately, Belboz has
seemed troubled, preoccupied, withdrawn ... small things only a friend would
notice. You have even heard frightening noises coming from his chamber, and
the cold shivers down your back. Could some evil spirit be at work here?
You are sleepless from worry - Belboz is possibly the most powerful
Enchanter in the kingdom. If his powers were used by the forces of darkness
instead of the forces of light, who knows what would result? And now,
unbeknownst to you, Belboz has vanished.

The old "Folio" packaging of Sorcerer consisted of a box
containing a pouch with a "Popular Enchanting" magazine, and an Infotater.
The re-release of Sorcerer used the standard box format which
consisted of a grey box with coloured horizontal stripes. It contained
a "Popular Enchanting" magazine, and "Field Guide to the Creatures of
Frobozz" (replaced the Infotater).
The release of the Enchanter Trilogy included Enchanter, Sorcerer, and
Spellbreaker each in their own standard box. The boxes were contained in a
specially designed trilogy slipcase.
