The stairs ended in a small stone archway. Fred ducked through and found
himself in a windswept courtyard. The sky was dark and grey. It was so dim
it was hard to tell if the light from the sky was sun or just a
paticularly bright full moon.
The courtyard was twenty feet by thirty feet with forty foot walls. A small ladder led up to a platform that traversed the entirety of the wallspace. To the left were thick oak doors twenty feet high. To the right was the side of a seventy foot high cliff, with more thick doors. Both sets were scarred and pitted and had a few arrows stuck in them. But the ones leading into the mountain were open!. Just a crack though.
