In ancient times, a Golden Capstone was placed atop the Great Pyramid at Giza for protection from the global flooding and scorching sun caused by the Tartarus Rotation, a solar event that occurs every 4,500 years. Then Alexander the Great broke the Capstone into seven pieces and hid them at the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. According to legend, whoever places the Capstone on the pyramid at the next Tartarus Rotation - coming in 2006 - will gain absolute power for the next 1,000 years. In a headlong race to find it are the world's most powerful countries, gangs of evil terrorists ... and a daring coalition of small nations who feel that no single country should possess such an awesome power.
