He finds ogres and wizards, forests and towers, but not a princess in sight.

Where on earth will he find her and what happens if she doesn’t need, or indeed want, to be rescued?

She single-handedly battles the baddies and befriends a fire-breathing dragon, perhaps she is in need of a brave knight?
