Hearing enough of the bickering, you slip by them down the stairs. You hear a "Huh? I think I just saw something over there....never mind it was just a shadow from the lights." You follow the long winding stairway down until you reach the bottom, and going into a aside alley, you allow Drei to get out of the cloak. She looks up at you worriedly "Sir, what are you planning on doing?" You pat her on the head reassuringly, and speak through the necklace to her.
With that you briskly turn and ride back up the ramp, only this time going up another branch of the tunnels that you noticed when you went up before. If your directions were correct, it should lead you right past the mob and bring you out somewhere near the harbor, and from there it is a short walk to the castle. You shall see what this king wants on your own terms, not the terms of zealots and green boys.
Exiting the tunnel, a kick look around shows that there are not many people around. The usual night crowd is acting as they normally do. With that, you start billowing fog into the already black night and make your way towards the castle.
The journey is uneventful, but there were some times you had to pick your way around some extra guards posted with lanterns, cursing at the fog. With that you soon arrived at the castle.
It was relatively unguarded, and simple in design. It was just a keep surrounded by palisade, that was easily scaled by someone your size. It was late at night now, as many of the few guards that were on duty were lazing about. The front gate is opened, and with a quick glance, you confirm there is nothing magical baring your way.
Stepping in you realize that the size on the outside was the size on the inside. The keep was nearly empty besides a few side rooms. But that is not why you are here.
