Prospero watched as the pretty mare wandered past after checking to make sure he was okay. "Little guy?!" He exclaimed as he stared at Linten before scooping him back onto his horn. "She must have been talking about you Linten. I am most certainly *not* a little guy." With that, he decided to follow the mare to see what she was up to.
((You have a stalker Silent! XD))
Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift.
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.

You hear some commotion out in the hall. Someone is displeased at being called small. The cute foal from early pops her head in the dining room- "I'd stay out of his way if I were you" she squeaked.

You’ve found a tightly wrapped scroll that is lovingly sealed with beautiful, finely crafted cyan wax seal. You break the seal gently and unravel the scroll. The script within is gorgeous and a work of art in itself. You begin the decipher the lovely script within, it reads:
The barer of this scroll is entitled to one absolutely fabulous hairdo

You've entered the Grand Foyer: the entrance to the Castle is a sight to behold - trumpets blast as you walk through the main doors, brightly coloured that pennants hang from every wall, hallways and staircases leading off in all the directions of adventure, and in the centre of the room is an enormous cascading fountain, complete with a intricately carved hippocampus frozen in stone in the centre. Someone sure knows how to make an entrance way!

Liam's face remained a complex and brooding fixture, almost as if he scarcely heard her. But then suddenly it brightened. "Wait! You're a unicorn! You are magical! You know what to do with a magic acorn, don't you? Of course you do! Here--" he began turning around, shuffling very awkwardly with his load, "in my back pocket. A little bag. You can keep whatever's in it. But if you could just reach into this sack and pull out the magic acorn -- I know you can find it, you're a unicorn, after all... actually. better take a bunch of them, just in case..."
The corner of the bag he was talking about was protruding from his back pocket, and his eyes were full of as much hope as he had acorns in the burlap sack. As Meng Jiang stared, his gaze faltered just a bit. "Oh. Wait, where are my manners. You're probably on a very important quest of your own, and I am in your way. I've probably delayed you terribly as it is already, and I should really just be going...."
Pausing to absorb some of the cellar coolness, Tristram takes a moment to utilize a protruding bottle to scratch an irritating itch just behind his left ear. He'd scratch about his horn too, but it klinks against a few bottles and he would hate to break any.
Finally satisfied (for now) the paint proceeds farther into the cellar, (E6).
Meng Jiang blinked at Liam. Well... yes, she was a unicorn so inherently magical. She wanted to go look around some more or better yet, find those pesky foals but... it wouldn't be right to leave Liam in such a pickle.
With an inward sigh, she gave him a smile. "I'll do my best to help, better with two heads than one, right?" She wasn't quite sure how to help, exactly. But she could certainly try!

Arwen nearly tripped over the fancy little scroll after she got no response from Tyden. Rolling her eyes, she carefully opened it, and then snorted out a laugh at the contents. "Fancy hairdo, indeed!" Amused she carefully tucked it away, before glancing back at Tyden. Deciding against any more drunken compliments, she continued forward into the wine cellar, curious as to what other antique scribblings might have been left here during some long-forgotten party.

Liam's eyes lit up like a school boys when she answered. "You are ever so kind! Here, take the bag--" he waggled his hip pocket in her direction again, so that Meng Jiang had no course but to take it. "Excellent. Now, let me just... open this a bit..." he tugged on the loosely tied drawstring with his teeth, causing more acorns to scatter. "There. Now. Just grab a bunch. I know you'll get the right one, you ARE a unicorn, after all... no, no take a bigger bunch... yes, like that... wonderful!"
He smiled at her warmly, all his care and concerns vanished. "Thank you so much! Now I can give these to the squirrels without accidentally setting any more magic a-stirr... because you KNOW how that always turns out," was his parting shot, as he shuffled out of the room with his load.
Meng Jiangis left with a small bag of [possibly magical] acorns, and the shiny Stone that Liam had had in the bag:
E6 Geob 6 Tristam entered the wine cellar - but was followed by a large crash. He gasped and turned around to see who had followed her into this dark place. A silly, smiling Tyden wandered into the lamplight. "You are an ....interesting gentleman," Tyden hiccuped slightly and tried to compose himself, clearly expecting someone else. "What are you doing down here?"
ASK TYDEN QUESTIONS! He may or may not be helpful >.>

Well you thought you might have gotten away with an uneventful chest. Nothing is better than curses for sure. Suddenly you hear music wafting up from the cellar of the castle. What on earth is that? The rhythm and the beat is undeniably disco. You smile, this isn’t too bad, this castle is getting fun! You look down and see your foot tapping to the beat- wait- you didn’t tell it to do that. Without your permission your hips start shaking and before you can stop it your whole body is doing the disco. Looks like you’ve cause a case of dancin’ fever! Your RP must include dancing now!

Next round at 7:30 EST Tomorrow! Please post your replies between now and then and we will get this whole party started again tomorrow!
BUT ALSO- You all feel a shaking in the ground beneath your feet, you tumble down despite your best attempts to stay up! Everyone is crashing and careening around as the castle seems to shake you up on purpose. Then- slowly- it comes to a stop, you get to your feet and check your surroundings, everything looks the same- but somehow you feel disoriented and different. We just had a castle shake up- the new order of go is:

Giving a sigh of relief, Tristram greeted Tyden and explained, "Avoiding a squawking griffon, sir."
Squinting a bit, the better to see into the depths of the cellar, Tris continued, "So how is the vintage? Have you found a favorite? What is over here?" Keeping an ear cocked to Tyden and his answer, Tristram drifted along to the west wall (B-9) and following its curve.
Avoiding the stairs to her immediate left, Irmuska decided to go ahead into the room ahead and to the right. She was on her way, when the whole castle shook! She stumbled, and when it stopped, she looked around, wondering what just happened. (Q9)
Meng Jiang wasn't quite sure how she had helped, but was pleased Liam seemed appeased by her attempt. And well wouldn't you know, she got something in return too! Happy by her encounter, she took the bag and it's delights to continue her search to see what might be in the next room at T12.

Arwen pinned her ears back, eyes wide with displeasure. Oh no! She hated dancing! Trying to decide if she should turn back to Tyden, Arwen decided that the faster she got out of here, the better! Before anything else happening! (Whoops, there goes a barrel of wine! That looked particularly old!)
We have everyone is place from last night and are prepping for another night of madness fun! Remember- once the round starts it's a movement free for all but the order of go does matter if you want to go to the same square. If you want to enter the castle you must sneak past the knight at the front gate, you must post your character doing this to join in the subsequent round

You've found an abandoned book- it seems so out of place! You pick it up and read the title "101 Jokes about Urdvoggen"- well this looks like an interesting read! The contents of the book will be PMed to you.
Hmm you pick up a rather shiny key...whatever could it be for?

"Anything by Epoine is great!" you hear Tyden call as you hurry away. You've broken free of him but as you explore the win cellar you come across a knight very similar to the one that was guarding the front entrance. He cocks his head at you and asks, "What are you doing down here?" he asks. You may ask the knight questions this turn OR move! Information has its price

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?

This castle is ridiculously large and you’ve been wandering around for what feels like forever! And it’s a really big castle, like really, really big. Your legs have begun to protest all the movement and you really can’t blame them. Out of the corner of your eye you notice a large comfy looking chair, looking around you don’t see anyone else, so who will notice if you take a little nap? You've been caught sleeping on the job, you can't move this turn

Arwen shuffled in place as she contemplated the book. Really, urdvoggen? They weren't that funny! Oh well, maybe one of the others dropped it on their way through? And oh, what's this? A shiny key! Now that will definitely be kept! Carefully tucking it and the book away, Arwen proceed to tap-dance through the hall.

Arwen did a strange sort of lindy-hop move when she spotted Odin. "Odin, help please! I found this strange chest, and now I can't seem to stop dancing! Is there anyway for me to stop?" She practically begged him.
Irmuska eyed the table speculatively, but decided she wasn't hungry just now. After considering her options, she headed straight through the room. (Q12 please, as I'm guessing I only get to use the latest number, not the earlier one!)
