Doing Time: The Fabulous Renaissance of one Randolph Stapler.

John Dowker

"Something is Rotten at the Tower of Ruru,"

(Act 1 Scene 4 Line 90 Henrik's 'Marcella.')

The Last Two Constables of the Tower of Ruru have not fared well. The Archon, the Ruler of the City of Tuarua-Ruru, has reasoned that where good men fail, perhaps what the City really needs is a Guilty Man.

Who he has is one Randolph Stapler (pronounced Stahp-Leur), a name that has never been linked with any offence, however his previous persona, Holden Gilt, is guilty of offences so terrible, the City has no punishment to fit his crimes.

Facing life imprisonment in the Tower of Ruru, Randolph is given a choice, spend the rest of his life behind bars as a prisoner, or accept the Archon's Offer of Employment as the New Constable of the Tower.

Tough Choice.

Without any experience of running a Prison, what is Randolph going to do about the Plate's oldest custodian, who hates change, the Emperor Dragon caged up down in the Black Dungeons, the member of the nobility who is showing far too much interest in the foundling boy, the prisoner who seems to nip out whenever he feels like it, and the fact that there is something very wrong with the guards.

And as to what he can do with the rather large pile of gold sitting in the basement, well Randolph has a few ideas about that.

All in all, it seems like Randolph Stapler is going to find it very interesting...


Find inside the incredible true(ish) story of the fabulous renaissance of one Randolph Stapler.
