Synopsis: Messer Niccolo Polo returns to China with his son Marco Polo. Kublai Khan has requested that he bring a flask of holy oil from the burning lamp in the sepulcher of the Christian God. Traveling with the Polo expedition is the wizard Baron Ch’en-liu, an Absolute Being, and a small creature called the Hoopala who lives four heartbeats into the future. Aboard Admiral DePacheallo’s flotilla they engage the admiral’s enemies: the black witch Countess Lucia della Catania, captain of the Black Falcon, her sea serpent and demons from the depths of the ocean. Secret scrolls from the Vatican cellars tell about the Magi Balthasar, who gave a fourth gift to the Holy Child: a fragment of the Chintamani Stone, from the star Sirius. Pope Gregory commissions the Polo expedition to find the Chintamani Stone. In the mountains of the Himalayas Baron Ch’en-liu awakens the monk Ten-Dzinn from a state of Utter Extension. Asked about the Chintamani Stone, the monk answers: “Seek the Heaven’s Mountain.” Baron Ch’en-liu builds an airship and with the help of Quaylin, a flying dragon, and La-tu, a repentant angel, they search for the Heaven’s Mountain and the kingdom of Prester John.
