Keys to the Castle

Apparently, I wasn't the only one who dreamt of keys last night.

I dreamt of Castle Marrach of all things. But, it was no longer a text game. It was VR. I entered the game incognito. I just wanted to look around. I watched a highbrow white haired mage character (played by artegal) drinking something and looking very regal in fine robes. There were a bunch of newbies clustered around his door watching. They couldn't get in due to a magic barrier.

I looked away to see the guard (seidl, I believe) bringing a siege clockwork through the hall. While everyone was distracted, I walked into my/Elea's workroom. It was magically protected so only the rightful owner could walk in. I closed the door behind me but the room between my room and artegal's workroom was open. So, I could hear the stir of people asking about me and wondering 'if Elea was finally back.'

I ignored all that. I opened my cabinet and the first thing I saw was a bunch of keys. Some single and one large ring stuffed with keys. These keys opened every door in the castle. The possibilities were endless. The sense of potential was amazing. While I was looking at the keys, someone walked into my workroom from Artegal's workroom. I'm not sure who it was. I didn't look. The anticipating potential was too good to break. It could have been Sansamor, Artegal or Morte. I just smiled to myself and reached into the cabinet picked up the large key ring.
