Ok quick head's up at this point there is not much you all can post about so if you don't get a post in it's all good. I really only need Kyle to post if he is moving you through the door into the castle though I assume he is.
i probably wont post this round i got nothing other then to say i;d move closer to the group but if we get much closer to one another if anything were to happen we'd be stepping on one another so till something happens or we get in the door... i got nadda :-/
Congrats if you had not moved Barreel in front of Aliya the giant Orc would have smelled her as a Half-Elf and you all would be in combat rds. You doing that was really the only non-magical, non-combat way to keep you all out of combat in the courtyard.
Though combat in the courtyard would have been fun as the Orcs and such would be trying to kill you and so would any arriving good guys . A DM's dream come true almost
I guess this is where we lose the disguise. Unless one of us happens to be carrying a black robe (the clothing, not the person).
As for direction I think we should head down the hallway that leads straight into the castle. I personally believe that is where they would hide the Dragon Queen. It's dangerous, but I believe it will lead us directly to the Dragon Queen... or the castle's owner.
... I would prefer to keep that spell for an escape after we rescue the Dragon Queen. I think we might struggle to leave through the main doors, so an escape route would be nice. Especially if the other groups manage to take out the power sources; it would stink to be trapped inside a falling castle. But that is just my opinion!
For hallways does anyone have a way they would prefer? I would prefer the way that leads directly (I don't know which direction that is though) into the castle because the prisoner Dragon Queen would most likely be near the center of the castle.
