The sorcerer Orphen is on a magic-for-hire-mission; he even receives a nocturnal visit from a ghost! Ethereal entities are the lest of Orphen's worries, though, as hired assassins (and ghastly snake men appear)--hungry for blood. Along with his wand-wielding understudy (and bone-headed companion), Orphen must retrieve a magical ring from the mansion of a beautiful young woman. This should be no sweat for the seasoned sorcerer, but a young woman--very attractive but equally deadly--with an interest in the black arts will complicate an already sticky situation
