Oh they were going with his idea? This was a nice change of pace. At least from those two. Alistair wasn’t used to so much protest from the Wardens anymore, he wasn’t the new recruit anymore. Ah. Time and blights and all that.
He did notice the odd space that was the Mabari in he lead, him, and then Kieran. While the two women were conveniently in tow. Alistair looked down at his son curiously. There was so much he didn’t know, too much in fact, that made him all the more hesitant to make approach to a given topic. How much did the poor little thing know? Why did he think his father wasn’t there all this time? And the boy was quiet which made it worse. Alistair was left to wonder in his head, watching the dog ahead of them for a moment before glancing back down at the boy. “Have a fancy for castles after staying in Skyhold? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one quite that large.”
It was a fortress indeed. This, looked about as typical as a castle could get. But the further they roamed the more..creatures appeared. More turtles. Flowers? Pipes? And we’re those..mushrooms with eyes. “Stay close.” He regarded and kept a hand on the hilt of his sword.
