The Halfshaft Games
by Jonathan Pidduck
The Games have commenced. A contest of strength, of courage, of the sheer will to survive, all televised for the viewers back at home. Pursued through the Forest by a motley collection of trolls, witches, Amazons and amorous dwarfs, Halfshaft the befuddled wizard runs for his life. His only companion is Cherry, his barely-dressed, narcissistic team-mate. Will they survive, against all the odds?
