* {{Plagiarism}}:
** It turns out that Leonardo da Vinci stole all of his ideas from things he saw in the Lost Storehouse of Archimedes. It's fair, though, since Archimedes apparently stole all of ''his'' ideas from {{Atlantis}}. The Order would probably try to explain it with some form of the "standing on the shoulders of giants" concept, but yes, they apparently have a long and proud history of plagiarism.
** The opening scenes also rip off ''Citizen of the Galaxy'' word for word.

* UnusualEuphemism: Wamthool is described as the Mannerjay's "merlin," with King Arthur's own Merlin having apparently become the standardized word for a court wizard in this setting.

The plot concerns a young boy named Travis (nicknamed "Tee"), who is sold into slavery after he is orphaned in an attack on a caravan. Tee is bought by Baydool (David Warner), a beggar man who is secretly a spy for the Order of the Delta Knights, a society dedicated to knowledge, justice, eradicating evil; the usual heroic stuff. Baydool makes Tee his apprentice as he covertly opposes the dastardly Lord Vultare (also David Warner), who is looking for the fabled Lost Storehouse of Archimedes, rumored to contain all manner of LostTechnology that would allow their wielder to TakeOverTheWorld.

The duo infiltrate Vultare's castle to gain access to a map leading to the storehouse, but afterward Baydool is captured, and Tee's attempt to rescue his mentor [[MentorOccupationalHazard ends badly]]. So, Tee sets off to find the Storehouse before Vultare can, joining forces with [[HistoricalDomainCharacter Leonardo DaVinci]] who is also a member of the Order, and a serving wench named Thena. Along the way they have a few scrapes with Vultare's forces, Leo hits on and gets hit by the girl, the party gets captured by a disturbingly merry band of masked bandits, and it turns out Thena is a princess.

* TheChosenOne: Tee is the one destined to find the way to Archimedes' Lost Storehouse. In practice what this means is they use the place of his birth to orient the map. Which from their starting place is actually ''north''.

* YeGoodeOldeDays: Much of the movie was shot at a Renaissance Faire in California, using staff and patrons as extras, which may explain some of the anachronisms.

* ArtisticLicenseGeography: Everyone's speaking English, but "Vultare" sounds vaguely French, Leonardo da Vinci is hanging around, and supposedly Archimedes of Syracuse has a storehouse nearby.
