The Unmapped Chronicles #1: Rumblestar

Caspar loves rules, hates surprises and is allergic to adventures. So it’s a nasty shock when he stumbles into Rumblestar, an Unmapped Kingdom of magical beasts. All he wants is to rush back home – but Rumblestar is in trouble. An evil harpy is wreaking havoc in the kingdom and trying to steal its magic. So what? How is that Caspar’s problem? Well, the future of his own world is bound up with that of the Unmapped Kingdoms. And all of Rumblestar’s people are expecting him to save them! So a reluctant Caspar sets off on a quest full of cloud giants, storm ogres and drizzle hags. Adventure rules OK! But – oh dear! Magical beasts don’t follow rules…
