For as long as humanity can remember, Earth has been linked with another parallel world from a very distant place in the universe. Occasionally, spirits from the link will choose their heroes to be summoned to the Other Side. Once they step through the Gate that connects these two places, there's no going back.

Cue Ernie Neswitt: a twelve-year-old boy who has lived a miserable life of being compared to his elder sister. He was always said to be worse, talentless, useless, and many other scornful things compared to his sister. Due to that trauma, he has formed an inferiority complex and usually has mental breakdowns.

On a seemingly usual day, he has been granted status of a 'Chosen One' by the spirits of the Gate, allowing him to leave all his problems behind on Earth and start a new, fresh adventure in his new world. Being all too happy to step into this Other Side, he will soon learn about the importance of of the things he left behind on Earth, along with the secrets that are held in this new world and all the hardships he will face along the way. Join Ernie as he battles his way through a fantasy world where he can live out all his wildest dreams, chock full off magic, monsters, and even friends and enemies to go with it.
