You arrive at the top of the stairs of Aiguo's manse.
Blue Boy arrives a few minutes later, arms and legs shaking from the exertion.
"There," he pants, "There was- there was a road! Ohgodsmylegs."
"The road takes longer." you say simply as your still-inebriated thunderbird makes a messy landing to your left, skidding to a stop, but failing to prevent a rather jarring collision with a boulder the height of a pine tree.
You are working with rough tools at present.

hWhat now oh ninja?

"Well." You say. Crossing your hands behind your back and looking at the Blue one expectantly.
"Well!" He says, admiring the edifice that is Aiguo's manse, a blue stone building with fluttering sky blue banners built into the mountainside on a step-like series of rocky plateaus.
"Well?" You say.
He blinks and looks at you. "Well what?"
Your thunderbird technicolor yawns over the roots of a nearby pine tree.
"We have arrived." You say. "We are at Aiguo's manse." You say. "You said he sent you here." You say.
"...Yes I did." He says and nods.
You kick his butt gently towards the manse.
"Ow!"
Wait, what's that?

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

One must never tolerate evil. For first, evil is tolerated; then embraced, then ailed as being good, then it becomes unlawful to do what is actually good.

5 - 5 - 8 - 10 - 9 - 5 - 2

4 successes!

You succeed by a threshold of two!


There's a smell of blood and fur lingering around this site, faint but lingering and omnipresent. It smells like dead cats up here, and you know what that means, especially when combined with that sharp, sour scent of exposed bone and urine-matted fur ticking your nose.
Blood apes, erymanthoi, Aiguo has a demon guard [or more] protecting the entrance to his manse.
This is the point where most ninja would quit and head home. An invisible, intangible foe that could leap out at any moment is too risky for most people to even dare attempt to evade.

Do you-

1: Go home, wait until  morning so as to not look like you're sneaking in?
2: Sneak in, you're a ninja and this is how you do?
3: Ride the thunderbird over the walls safely?
4: Walk openly up to the doors and knock?
5: Activate spirit sight [5 motes] to make spotting the demons possible?
6: Turn invisible [3 motes, adds one automatic success to stealth rolls and every additional 3 motes adds another success]?
7: Activate trackless passage style [2 motes per person] to make you/and your crew impossible to track?
8: Order your group to wait here?
9: Scout ahead?
10: Other?
11: Combination?

[Okay then! I mean you can join regardless, but it's a complicated game with a complicated setting, and this rp has over 1 and a quarter hundred pages, so it might be difficult to understand what's going on if you don't read it. :-\ ]

(I read White Fang all the way thru and remembered it well enough to finish sentences that my dad started at random when I was SEVEN. I think I can catch up.
