The old Cloppa Castle is today is ruined heap. But, as the ghost of Queen Ethelbruda materialises, time rolls back to medieval days and the castle is, once again, a magnificent edifice alive with people. It is the stronghold of the Byegones and the crazy goings-on are dominated by the attempts of another tribe, the Hasbeenes, to beseige the castle because oil has been discovered beneath it. The Hasbeenes get up to every type of ruse - sometimes extremely clever - to become the oil barons of their age.
