After discovering an ancient stone tabled while on a dig in Ireland, archeologist, Adam Drex becomes obsessed with deciphering the rune covered slab of basalt. To his surprise, he discovers, or so he thinks, that the ritual contained within the cryptic message is a way to contact a different frame of reference. However, after convincing his two closest friends, Frank West and Jack Benson, to help him carry out the rite at Stone Henge, it soon becomes apparent that it goes far beyond simply opening a link to another world, instead, it tears open the fabric of the space time continuum and hurtles the three companions into a universe where magic, not science is the norm. 


At first, all three are bemused by the course of events, however, both Adam and Frank, soon acclimatize to their new surroundings, Jack however, who was possessed by an evil entity prior to them carrying out the ritual, becomes increasingly belligerent, and sets out on a quest to find Draxar, a rogue acolyte, intent on deposing the benevolent rulers of the land and replacing them under his tyrannical rule.

In an attempt to prevent Jack from reaching his goal, a goal that could possibly destroy them Adam and Frank set out on a series of adventures, populated with a myriad of characters, including, Nomets, a diminutive but incredibly skilled warrior race. A giant snake; Groats, Draxar's foot soldiers; The Rockwaren, a subterranean civilization. Elves; Giants; A stygian witch; Riverboat Pirates; a war lord; and a Druid High Priest.

After numerous adventures, the tale culminates in the city of Atlantis, a mythical location surrounded by a vast zone of death that kills anyone that attempts to cross it. Contained within this ancient edifice, is an artefact that both Adam and Draxar must find a way to reach to give them the upper hand over their nemesis.
