Plot

It is the wedding day of the Elf Queen Mayre, and Princess Liya (Ashley Boettcher) is excited to invite Little Fish (Ryan Potter). The queen allows Liya's request, though Liya's brother, the elf king to-be, disapproves. Meanwhile, at the site of an ancient battleground where the spirits of the many slain elves lurk, Meyla, a dark elf, tries to control the power of the Dark Stone of Death. Meyla, who is the sister of Queen Mayre, resurrects the spirits of the battlefield as her soldiers and gatecrashes the wedding ceremony.

There, a quick fight takes place between the elves and Meyla, but the elves are unable to defeat her. Meyla attacks Mayre and asks for the Green Gem of Life. The queen was supposed to wear it on her wedding day, but Mayre foresaw the danger and gave it to Liya to hide and protect it. As Meyla fights with the queen for the gem, Little Fish fires an arrow with the bow gifted to him by Princess Liya. The arrow injures Meyla's hand. The angered Meyla corrupts the arrow with the magic of the Dark Gem and shoots back towards Little Fish, wounding him. As the magic of the Dark Gem enters his body, it begins corrupting Little Fish.

Meyla is unable to find the Green Gem so she kidnaps Queen Mayre and demands it and a valuable elvish map as ransom in exchange for Queen Mayre. Little Fish and his friends assist Princess Liya and the elves in rescuing the queen and defeating the evil Meyla.
