Castle Roogna is named for a book of the Xanth series by Piers Anthony. Xanth is a magical land where every one has a magical talent.
Dor, son of Bink is a 12 year old magician and next in line to inherit the throne of Xanth. To teach him the skills he will need to rule the kingdom, King Trent sends him on a mission 800 years into Xanth's past to find the ancient and mysterious Zombie Master. Dor travels to the past via the magic tapestry of Castle Roogna. While in the past Dor is accompanied by a (not normally) giant spider named Jumper, who had been drawn into the tapestry with him. Jumper arrives as a man sized specimen of spiderdom, who identifies himself as Phidippus Variegatus of the jumping spider family Salticidae. Jumper proves to be an invaluable presence to temper Dor's impulsiveness and lack of experience.
