the Royal Palace dining table Prince Adam complains to Orko about
the fact that he has to learn royal etiquette. Adam remarks that
a King can do whatever he wants, not knowing that King Randor and
Man-At-Arms have entered the room. Man-At-Arms tells Adam that peace
talks between the Speleans and the Caligars have broken down, and
that King Randor has been asked to help them reach a settlement.
At Snake Mountain Skeletor rants to Beast Man, Evil-Lyn and Whiplash
that he has attacked Castle Grayskull by land, by sea, and by air,
and failed on each occasion. Whiplash suggests attacking the castle
from below, via Subternia. Skeletor muses that Castle Grayskull's
walls may be made of the hardest stone, but that it no doubt has
a soft, weak, underside. Entering Subternia King Randor, Man-At-Arms
and Adam are confronted by Lord Dactys, and his fellow Speleans,
as Skeletor, Beast Man and Evil-Lyn follow Whiplash into Subternia.
Lord Dactys shows his guests the great forge, where the Speleans
engage in their metalwork. A concerned King Randor comments that
the Speleans appear to be making many weapons. A Spelean warrior
swoops from above and informs Lord Dactys that Skeletor is trespassing
in Subternia. Man-At-Arms concludes that Skeletor is making an attempt
on Castle Grayskull from below. King Randor walks away to confront
Skeletor informing Man-At-Arms that he made a pledge to defend Eternia
from the forces of evil and that he means to honor his word, with
his own blood if necessary. Lord Dactys passes his very own sword
to King Randor. An impatient Skeletor continues to follow Whiplash
through the caverns of Subternia. King Randor, Man-At-Arms and Adam
discover the Caligars, Adam believing their leader to be Whiplash,
resulting in a fight. King Randor successfully defends his friends
against the Caligars and overpowers Ceratus, leader of the Caligars.
Ceratus recognizes King Randor, who tells Ceratus that he is on
an urgent mission, tracking Skeletor, who is attempting to conquer
Eternia. King Randor informs Ceratus that the Speleans are allies
of his, as the Caligars once were. King Randor states that once
he completes his mission he will mediate a peace treaty between
the Caligars and the Speleans. King Randor, Man-At-Arms and Adam
enter a large cavern where all of the lava streams meet in Subternia.
The group quickly spot Skeletor, many levels above them. King Randor
confronts Skeletor. The heroes dive to a lower level to avoid being
blasted by Skeletor's Havoc Staff. When Adam is separated King Randor
tells his son to find his way back to the surface. Skeletor then
blasts the rock structure that King Randor and Man-At-Arms reside
on, sending them towards the lava below, while Adam transforms into
He-Man. As they fall Man-At-Arms uses his mace to fire out a grappling-hook,
which he and King Randor use to pull them to safety. Meanwhile the
Evil Warriors locate the underground entrance to Castle Grayskull.
Just as the villains prepare to enter King Randor and Man-At-Arms
appear, prompting Skeletor's Evil Warriors to attack. As they battle
Skeletor and Evil-Lyn use their magic to break down the entrance
to Castle Grayskull, where they discover He-Man waiting for them.
He-Man and King Randor duel with Skeletor and are successful in
disarming the villain. Skeletor seeing no means of entering Castle
Grayskull escapes. As the Evil Warriors flee through the caverns
they are confronted by the Caligars, who are none to pleased with
Whiplash, a traitor to the Caligars. Back at the Royal Palace Adam
tells Orko how great his father was in Subternia.

people what to do. It's about leading by example, and standing up
