Whoever has possession of the Gateway Stone, controls the destiny of Arcadia and the forces of good. Zeelandia is their only hope, the only one pure and powerful enough to save Arcadia from the forces of the dark side. Awakened from decades of slumber to learn that the precious stone has been stolen, she is opposed by Vandermortel, champion of evil and powerful sorcerer, whose malevolence knows no limits. Defeated earlier by Zeelandia and imprisoned within the stone, Vandermortel is bent on revenge and summons up the dark riders of the apocalypse and an alliance of mystical creatures to secure his release from the stone’s grip. Zeelandia needs to undergo rigorous training by the great White Queens of the past to be able to thwart Vandermortel. In a cosmic battle of wills, a desperate race against time ensues that points inexorably to the ultimate destiny on the sacred Mount Fleming.
