|Plot Summary of The Renfaire Tales|
Tobias, son of Karr, is a young lad living in the times of knighthood and chivalry. When his father, mother and best friend are accused of stealing the King's treasure, he sets off on a quest to clear not only their names, but his as well. On this journey he meets up with MacRaven, who, up till now, has been feared by the townspeople as a great and poweful wizard. After clearing his family's name, Tobias sets off on three more adventures. Each one turns out to be more treacherous than the last. On one adventure he must help MacRaven win the heart of his lady love by returning with a great treasure from a nearby mountain. There is a great battle with the Sultan and his men for this treasure. Later, Tobias is kidnaped, and it's up to MacRaven and Tobias' friends Sir Terrance MacCrow (a great knight), Donuel (MacCrow's Squire) and a few other colorful charachters to save him. Finally, Tobias and company end up in a spooky old castle where he and his five closest friends must battle for their lives.
