The Royal Tournament – Chapter 2
Splidge the Cragflinger – The Royal Tournament by Richard Vobes – Chapter 2
Splidge had never been to the Palace before, but he could see it from his village. It wasn’t always visible. The City was often shrouded in a thick layer of smog. Rain made everything damp, so people stoked their fires to keep warm causing smoke to belch out of hundreds of red brick chimneys. The foggy atmosphere hung low and smothered the Guddian folk as they walked along the grimy streets.
