Tribute to Ogma

[quote]Northern Meadow
This is a lush meadow outside the olive-green walls of Silverwood
Reach.  Wildflowers grow rampant through the tall grass in this
small spacebetween the castle and the great forest surrounding
it.  The stars above smile down upon this peaceful field in the
deep of the night.  A tunnelruns through a short gatehouse in the
castle wall.  A spruce portcullis is raised about one-quarter of
the way to the south and is going down. The tunnel is faced with a
beautiful serpentine arch.  It is shadowy here.
There are four exits: southwest, southeast, north, and south.

[quote] Gatehouse
This is a wide tunnel of dark green stone leading through the castle
gatehouse, connecting the courtyard, to the south, with the outside
world. Numerous arrow-slits and murder holes have been built high into
the tunnel to assist the residents in repelling invasion.  The
tunnel's northern end is faced a spectacular arch of polished
serpentine.  A spruce portcullis is raised about half way to the
north and is going up.  It is well lit here.
There are two exits: north and south.
Amaia the elf.

[quote]Courtyard
This is a large, open area within the castle enclosure.  The tall,
green walls of the donjon rise above one side of this ward while the
sparkling outer curtain wall towers overhead on the other.  A wide
flagstone path of white limestone leads about the base of the donjon,
connecting the various outbuildings.  Beds of healthy green grass
grow between the paths.  A broad stair descends from the door of
the donjon, meeting the path at the center of the courtyard before a
magnificent olivine fountain.  It is shadowy here.
There are six exits: north, a closed steel door leading south, west, east,
southeast, and southwest.
