SummariesWhen The Sliders land on a world complete with Dragons and Castles, Quinn is mistaken for a man with special powers. -Fox
In a mystical world whose belief system consists of magic potions, dragons and illusions, a practitioner thinks Quinn comes from a powerful line of wizards--and must be eliminated. -TV Guide
63. Druids' EarthThis is a world of dragons, swords, sorcerery, and love potions. Magic actually seems to be real here, especially for those people who call themselves druids. One druid in particular, Gareth Carr, has become quite powerful and very evil. Shunned by other druids, he searches for a way to become immortal.
There is, or rather was, a clan of powerful white druids who once lived on this world--their clan name was Mallory. The one remaining member of Clan Mallory is Phillip who is imprisoned in Gareth's castle. Gareth cannot kill Phillip because if you wipe out the last of a lineage it is believed you incur the wrath of Mercury, the god of high magic.
