Siegfried and Roy manage a brilliant escape from the Cave of No Return and are beseeched by the King's beautiful daughter, Princess Estella, to help save her father, King Midas, who has now been cursed by Greed with the power of the golden touch. Roy opens a mysterious book he keeps in his possession. The Book of Sarmoti is a record that shows the Titan's legendary path of destruction, during the Year of the Darkness, when they pillaged Sarmoti's magic. Following a map, Siegfried and Roy head to the River Pactolus because rumors have cropped up that magic is slowly making its way back into remote pockets of their world. The river's once-magical waters (if now revived) are their only hope of curing the King's golden touch, and banishing the entity Greed which has taken over his body and mind. At the river Pactolus, Siegfried and Roy must outsmart Medusa as they risk being turned to stone. But in a wild action sequence, they use an illusionist's penchant for misdirection and ultimately foil the monstrous she-beast. Racing back to Midas' castle with a gourd filled with the magic water, they are suddenly confronted by a massive beast, Grendel, as it attacks the village and castle. Princess Estella and all the town are in peril unless they now do something to vanquish the twelve foot monster.
