Can the ring the princess is given protect her against the lurking menace of the boglins from under the mountain?
“Remember, then, that whoever does not mean good is always in danger of harm. But I try to give everybody fair play, and those that are in the wrong are in far more need of it always than those who are in the right: they can afford to do without it.” ― George MacDonald, The Princess and Curdie
