The First Adventure …

The city of Gud has a Royal Tournament every six years to find the greatest Cragflinger of all the land. The supreme leader, King Guddamac is desperate to find someone to represent the Royal Palace. Everything depends on these games going ahead.
A young 12 year old boy, who has come of age, is in search of a job to support his mother and younger sister. The engagement at the Palace seems, on the face of it, ideal. Little does this poor, scruffy, young man realise that by taking the job he will have to deal with one of the most hated men in all of Gud, the evil Baron and his army of henchmen. The Baron is set on highjacking the tournament for his own ends and nothing will stop him.
Exactly what is Cragflinging? Who is this boy? What has happened to his father and why does the girl with the raven hair fascinate him so much? Find out in the exciting story of Splidge, the Cragflinger!
