Shadow King
Description The leader of the shadow boys is called the Shadow King. He, or she, rules until there are at least two challengers to have a new king. A flag is placed somewhere in town (location is decided by current king) and a race is run to retrieve the flag. The current king can also run the race. There are no rules for the race as the Shadow King embodies the fastest, most cunning, most ruthless, most adept of the Shadow Boys. Death, maiming, and injuries are a normal occurrence in the race.
