Arwen had eyed the castle from the shadows watching with amusement as the foals ran past the guard, and the other unicorns had to answer a riddle to get past him! Waiting patiently, she soon slipped past the guard after the others had entered the castle and he had relaxed, for once blessing the fact that she had not inherited either of her parents' coloring!
N11 Sio - 5 You've entered the Hall of Champions: this hallway seems to go on forever! It's lined with portraits, most of them men and women but a few animalia too, and no matter where you stand, they all seem to be watching you. There are name plaques below each one, but to read them, you'd be tripping over the suits of armour that also line the hall in silent vigil.

Khadhija spent some time just perusing the portraits. They really ranged from different subjects to different styles. But she had had enough of the creepy pictures, and made her way towards N16. The tore examined it carefully before nudging on it to open.
You've entered the Study: you find a simple room with a large desk strewn with papers and heaped books. A few messy bookshelves lean against the walls and Cabinets of Curiosities line the other. There's also a couch, a thinking chair, and an extremely realistic bearskin rug in the centre of the room that you can't be sure isn't still alive.
A small griff pops up from around a corner. It’s very cute and fluffy- d’awww. You go over to pick it up and and it happily weaves between you legs. You open your mouth to chastise the small griff but as soon as you do it let’s out an uncharacteristically loud “SQUAWK!” You blink, taken aback as it stares at you, you open your mouth again and it once again let’s out a very loud “SQUAWK!” Ok- clearly this little thing is not going to let you talk. You start walking away from it and it follows you. You break into a jog and then a sprint with the small griff happily chasing you throughout the castle. You must post "SQUAWK" at the beginning and end of you RP post

You've entered the Ballroom: it's an expansive room, gleaming from floor to ceiling with inlayed marble and extravagant chandeliers swung above your head; gilded pictures line the upper reaches, mostly pastoral scenes, and there's a raised platform set out with instruments ready to play.
You feel as though a shadow has been following you around. Who is this invisible person stalking you? You do a quick jump turn and come face to face with ...Liam? He smiles sheepishly and waves, "Hi!"

"You suddenly spot a lump on the floor. Curious, you pick it up and suddenly hear "READY CHECK" shouted at the top of someone's lungs. Looking up, you duck out of the way in time to watch a grey blur run smack into the wall. "Oomph." You watch Prospero slide to the floor."

Mesmerized by the sights all around her, Meng Jiang nearly walked headlong into Liam who was just coming out of another room, his arms full with a bulgy burlap bag that seemed rather heavy. He nearly lost his balance, but didn't, swaying back and forth until he found his centre again. "Oh! I didn't see you there. Sorry about that," he apologized. "Things just seem to be coming out of EVERYWHERE in this place..."
YOU MAY ASK LIAM A QUESTION...! or, whatever really; he's pretty compliant XD
Meng Jiang gasped as she walked headlong into no one other than... Liam?!
"Eep! Liam!" she exclaimed, skittering back to give him some room. "You're telling me, I was just admiring everything... hey. What's that you're carrying?" Seemed pretty bulky and heavy. Maybe she could help?

Arwen carefully nudged the door in front of her open, ignoring the corridor off to the right, and daintily made her way down the stairs, head tilted at juuuust the right angle to watch where she was going.
(Why yes, Tores could be dainty, thank you very much! E6 please!)

As Meng Jiang spoke, Liam glanced around the ballroom as if seeing it for the first time. But at her question his attention snapped back, and he looked... a little embarrassed? "Oh," his face even reddened somewhat. "This old thing?.... well.... actually, they're acorns," he sighed.
You get the feeling you are being followed though...

You've entered the Dining Room: a large table crowns this room, which could easily sit twenty. And it's meticulously set, as if waiting to serve you a meal. But where's the food?

You've entered Linten's Way: a long, winding hallway that's just a bit dusty and might have a moth or two. Where could it lead?

You've entered the Wine Cellar: the large chamber is cool but dry, with none of that musty smell you associate with a basement. The walls are lined with row upon row of wine racks, each containing a more impressive vintage then the last. They seem to go on forever.
And someone is following you....
Next round at 9:15!
For sanity let's say 2 more rounds tonight and pick up tomorrow at 7:30PM EST?

Arwen entered the wine cellar daintly- but was followed by a large crash. She gasped and turned around to see who had followed her into this dark place. A silly, smiling Tyden wandered into the lamplight. "You are a....pretty lady," Tyden hiccuped slightly and winked at Arwen. "What are you doing down here?"
ASK TYDEN QUESTIONS! He may or may not be helpful >.>

Liam frowned. "They're not for me! They're for.... well, they're for the squirrels, okay? They're feeling a little ruffled by this whole castle suddenly appearing in the middle of their forest. So wanted to do something nice for them!" He shuffled with the bag again, as the contents shifted, a few dark nuts spilling over the top and scattering across the floor. "So I went looking and, quite by accident, found this Lady - Madam Q - and she seemed to know what I was looking for even before I told her." Something like that might have startled him in his old life, but on Kalidore, he was startled by almost nothing these days. Almost. "Anyways, she gave me the acorns. For the squirrels. But then she said that ONE of them is magic. And... well..." the gravity of the situation seemed to sink under the gravity of the nuts. He looked at Meng Jiang almost hopefully.

Arwen wrinkled her nose slightly at the smell of wine in the air. Tyden, and he'd been drinking. Lovely. "At the moment, wondering why humans enjoy wine. Doesn't it destroy your sense of smell?" Honestly, it all smelled nasty, and tasted even worse! Even Epione's apples and ciders were of no interest to her! Sighing, she took a few steps deeper into the wine cellar behind her, ears flicking back and forth. "Aside from the wine, did you find anything of interest in here?"
Irmuska wandered up to the castle, curious. It was definitely a new development, and she eyed the guard for a moment. She barely heard him asking a riddle to someone as she examined one side of the wall, and decided she had no tome for riddles. While he was busy with one of the silly folk who were trying to solve it, she quietly slipped past him and headed into the castle.
Meng Jiang fidgeted. It was a pleasant surprise to find Liam, although his predicament just seemed to make everything worse. She looked forlornly at the paintings, but she couldn't leave Liam out to dry.
