The Raven King
A long, long time ago or maybe not that long… Far, far away or maybe quite near… Bolko, son of a trumpeter from the town hall tower, rescues an injured raven. It turns out that this is the Raven King himself. As proof of his gratitude, the Raven King gifts the boy a magic trumpet. At the same time, thanks to Spy 006, the rulers of the neighbouring states receive information on a “gold-making” machine allegedly built by Mercurius Practicus, famous Poznań-based scholar and inventor. They decide to force the Mayor to hand over the machine to them. Hostile armies surround the city. When the defenders are close to losing hope, Bolko summons the Raven King.
