Back in the day, when I was an impressionable young lad watching the D&D cartoon, I saw an episode where an evil mage stood before empty ground and intoned in an eldritch voice the command of "RISE!". His lair rose from the ground. That was all I remembered, but since that time, I've rememberd that phrase and scene in my head. It's one of my weird things I'll do when I'm jokingly waking someone up, I'll stand and lift an arm in a Darth Vaderish sort of way and command "RISE."And here is the scene in question (the video will start at that point which Kelek performs the summoning).
Anyway... when I saw the figure of Kelek, I realized he was the sorceror from the scene, so I did a search for him from the YouTube D&D Cartoon ... and at long last, I've found the scene, from the episode "Valley of the Unicorns Part 1": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgCoCch_LVI
Mystery solved! (And this probably is one of the strangest comments you'll get for this post!)
It was images like this, along with the 1E books and the Hobbit (among others), that forever cemented the power and mystery of magic in my mind - that mages deal in powers and things that are unnatural for mortal man to control.
