Waiting for minimum critic reviews


When Brian, the cobbler, answered his door, little did he know that the beggar he saw there was just the start of an amazing adventure. He would meet thousands of skeletons, a cursed princess, an evil wizard and more. Armed only with a song in his heart and a big smile, Brian faced all these and managed to rescue a kidnapped prince and save a small country.

With the assistance of the wizard, Mirdnar, Brian set out to rescue the Prince. But the first night, they were captured by a cursed princess - and broke the spell she was under. With her curse lifted, thousands of skeletons were given new life and the Princess joined Brian's party to rescue Randrim, the Prince, from the evil Saukon, who had put the curse on her and was holding Randrim captive.

Brian and the wizard managed to get into the castle and find the Prince. In a great battle Mirdnar defeated Saukon, but suffered the loss of all his powers. The once-cursed Princess was restored as Queen - and the rescued Prince could return to his country.

And, of course, Brian, the cobbler, was a hero.
