You succeed by a l o t .

You ghost forward across the area between you and the Manse's walls, sliding between pieces of cover in time with, now less frequent, flashes of lightning. Taking advantage of the moments of blindness after lightning bolts and the deafening reports of lightning you manage to avoid detection and arrive at the base of the wall undetected.
And then Ajax and your thunderbird come blundering along after you with a racket a deaf person would hear.
You sigh and cover your eyes with your hand.
Amateu-
Wait.
What's that smell?
You bring your hand to your nose and sniff just as a flash of lightning illuminates the rich red blood coating your palm and fingers.
Erymanthoi blood. You look up and notice how odd the shapes of some of those boulders are. Lightning illuminates what you missed a few moments before you would have figured it out yourself.
Erymanthoi, in pieces.

What do you do?

Blood apes from hell. They're the demons you were rolling stealth to avoid. You fought a few of them as Mengyao once.

You shrug. Oh well! That's one less thing to worry about!

After shushing Ajax and the thunderbird [through copious use of palm punching and dragging a finger across your neck] you decide to get back to doing what you do best.
Being a ninja.
So you're gonna sneak. But where are you gonna sneak?

1: Up the waterfall and into the gardens?
2: Scale the walls and unlock the gate from the inside?
3: Try to track whatever killed the blood apes?
4: Other? [what?]

[Sorry for being away so long! I'm back now though!]

What's a wall to a ninja like you?
Nothing, that's what.

You crawl up the wall like a fly, but with far more precision and less fluttering. Within 30 seconds you've crossed the battlements, rolled across the parapet and activated the gate mechanism, letting your people in.
But wait, there was something odd about-
As your thunderbird enters, he opens his mouth in a wide yawn, then makes a choking motion as no sound comes out of his mouth, but a silk scarf, with a string of Old Ream characters on it comes flowing out of his throat and drifts off into the air, flowing up the stairs of the manse to your left.
He looks rather distressed.

What do you say/do?
