You walk down the path, into the depths of the forest. The forest floor is dappled with sunlight
and leaf-shadow. You notice that some of the berry bushes show signs of having been harvested.
As well, the occasional white-scarred tree trunk shows that something clawed or horned came by
The only sound other than the crunching of the leaves and twigs underfoot is the whistling of the wind amongst the trees.
You continue down the path, keeping an eye out for any horned, clawed, berry-eating beings that may react with hostility to being discovered.
Eventually, you come to a fork in the road, with a signpost next to it.
One arrow clearly reads:
TO THE CASTLE
The writing on the other arrow is obscured, but you can see that the path at which it points is narrow and wooded... more of a half-wild trail than an actual civilized path.
Take the well-travelled path | Take the woodsy path | Go back
