You WHAT! Fireball had just informed me he had gone into business - Phoenix Protection Services.
The Keeper of Wishes in the Mystery Chamber has paid him 2 gold chests & 3 silver chests so far to protect her from the assassin.
Fireball had found the assassin in the City Square. He warned him not to try anything funny. Chris the Assassin laughed & tossed a rusty chest at Fireball. Fireball gave him a hot foot & then sent Liv and her friend, Apocalypse Rider & his gang to pay a little visit to Chris. The assassin now pays Fireball to protect him from Liv & her friends - 2 gold chests & 1 silver chest so far.

"Well!! Now you can lay off the Ice Monster at Ice Rock," I say. "Okay!" Fireball replied. "He has run out of gold & silver chests anyway - only has rusty ones left."
Some days you just can't win an argument.

"Any thing else?" I query. "Only the Binding Egg," he replied. Apparently, to avoid becoming hard-boiled, the Binding Egg has agreed to supply Fireball with several Blood Lotus. "That's extortion," I said. "No, it is the Binding Egg employing me to protect itself from me!" he replied. I can feel a Headache coming on.

To all the players having trouble getting a Blood Lotus from the Binding Egg, I apologise. Fireball has first dibs & he is talking about teaming up with Cee_For Cat & expanding into the Castle black market. Cee_For has found 2 great storage areas where they can stow all the items they plan to sell. The first area is in the Frozen Treasure Room to which Cee_For gains entry by using the Ice Key he stole. The second area is in the Headstone in the Ancient Park - a little deal he has going with the Headstone statues. At present Fireball & Cee_For are talking to Salty & some of his contacts about setting up business.

I shake my head. Some times you just have to let them go!

Emerald Dragon is pouting (again)! Emerald is very good at pouting. I think she practises in front of her bedroom mirror. Sebastian Seal & Pup Puppy have been telling Emerald what a great time they had playing with the Kraken. Now Emerald wants to see the Kraken. Trouble is Emerald & Skull Pete do not get along - he calls her the "Party Diva" in that snide way of his & Emerald gets huffy about it. So Emerald is pouting until Cee_For Cat leans over & whispers in her ear. Then a big smile lights her face. "Really!" she asks? Cee_For nods & the two disappear. Apparently Skull Pete has gone away for the day & while the pirate is away, the pets will play!!

Cee_For takes along a bottle of Moonshine plus he finds Skull Pete's rum so hands that to Emerald as well. While Cee_For goes off to see what else he can find, Emerald goes over to the Kraken. She asks the Bow Figure to join in as he already has his own bottle of wine. Soon the 3 of them are having a merry time. They come up with a game - Fireball tossing. Have a drink & see how far you can blow a flame! Emerald & the Kraken throw the Fireballs while the Bow Figure is the referee. Emerald was winning until she hiccoughed when she was blowing her Fireball. It barely missed Skull Pete's (who had just arrived back) hat & landed smack dab in the centre of the Skull & Crossbones flag Skull Pete loved - setting it on fire. "OUT!" roared Skull Pete, shoving a rusty chest at Emerald. She looked haughtily at Skull Pete & said "You have to do better that that!" Tossing a silver chest at Emerald as well, Skull Pete pointed to the way out & went off to rescue his beloved skull & crossbones.

Meanwhile, Cee_For slunk off with a rusty chest he had found. I don't think Skull Pete even knew he was there. My little sneak thief is very good at not being noticed so I suggest to everyone, check your inventory. You never know, Cee_For may have paid you a visit.

It all began with a comment from Cee_For "I'm no scaredy cat!" Others were very quick to say they were not either. So it was decided that - they would show their bravery by having a story-telling session - telling ghost stories - in a gloomy, spooky place. The Ancient Park with its Weeping Stone Fairy/ Headstone & Sad Gargoyle was declared the ideal place so the intrepid little group trooped off. Once at the Ancient Park, they decided to have a look around first.

Prickles Hedgehog found a rusty chest in the reeds along the edge of the Overgrown Pond and Sebastian Seal found a rusty chest in the Overgrown Pond.

Hoppy Tiger went up to the Stone Fairy & asked why she was crying? The Fairy was so relieved someone wanted to talk to her that she gave Hoppy a gold chest.

Steffany Squirrel scampered up the tree to check out the Tree Face. It suddenly opened it's mouth & there was a gold chest - Steffany quickly grabbed the chest & scooted down the tree before the Tree Face could change it's mind & close it's mouth.

Fireball Phoenix had a little chat to the Headstone statues & using a little 'persuasion', he was given a gold chest! Honestly that boy!

They were preparing to have the scary story session when it started to rain. They all dashed inside the Chapel, pulling up short when a ghostly apparition appeared in front of them. It was Valeria's Spirit and she welcomed the company. Soon the brave little group was seated around Valeria listening to "live" ghost stories from a "real" ghost.

SURPRISE! For me! A uncle I never knew has returned - Count Vesnik, the original owner of the Castle. He disappeared many years ago while searching for his lost wife & daughter. Now he is back (on his own) & has taken up residence in the Throne Room. The Lord Chamberlain/Bat has been relegated to a shelf. So some of the pets & I go to welcome him home.

Pup Puppy is the first one to spot the Count. He gives an excited yip & makes a mad dash towards the Count, trips on his ears, slides across the floor & lands in a heap at the Count's feet. Pup gets up, shakes himself & gives his big goofy grin. The Count laughs & bends to scratch Pup behind the ears. "You are a funny one!" he states. Pup does a 'happy dance' with his tail wagging furiously. He is rewarded with a silver chest.

Next Mandy Manticore approaches, offering the Count some cookies she has made. The Count is delighted with this show of welcome & gives her a silver chest.

Hoppy Tiger politely compliments the Count on his colourful, dapper outfit made of crushed velvet & satin & inquires as to who the Count's tailor is. Pleased with this polite & gentlemanly young fellow, the Count gives Hoppy a silver chest.

I welcome the Count home. He said he would like a tour to see the condition of the Castle. He was not happy when he saw the wall between the Throne Room & the Tower. "Who did that!" he roared.

Deciding to face the music, Emerald Dragon owned up. She introduced herself & said she was the niece of the Wise Dragon in the Tower. She apologised for losing control of her flame when she hiccupped. Deciding he like her honesty - a rare trait in young people nowadays - the Count accepted her apology & gave her a silver chest.

We depart to allow the Count to settle in & have a rest before I take him on that tour.

"Repairs badly needed! Sooo much to do!" groaned the Count after I took him on a tour of the Castle. He decided he would start in the Throne Room. The burned wall & door between the Throne Room & the Tower would have to come out & he was getting a stone wall & archway put in. In order for work to start, the Dead Ambassador needed to be moved & a new hiding pace for his chest needed to be found. The Count ordered that the Ambassador be buried with all due respect. While they were at it, they also buried the 3 skeleton prisoners from the Dungeon & the one from the Prison Cell hanging on the Castle Wall. Fireball Phoenix, Happy Turtle & Cuddles Panda helped move all the skeletons & inter them. For their assistance the Count gave them each a silver chest. Perdita Pegasus & Sebastian Seal paid their respects to those being buried & were rewarded with a rusty chest each.

As Emerald Dragon was at fault with the Throne Room wall, she had to remain in the Throne Room & clean up after the stone masons finished. Pup Puppy, due to his past escapade with the skeletons, was not allowed to attend the funerals so he remained in the Throne Room & helped Emerald clean up. The Count was very pleased with the finished result & gave both Emerald & Pup a silver chest each.

More changes are on the way. Already I can feel the positive vibes starting in the Castle. The pets & I have much to do.

Summer has arrived in the Castle - the Winter Garden is now the Summer Garden. Flowers are in bloom. Birds have nested, hatched their young & are now feeding the hatchlings. A squirrel now keeps the Lady Reader company. "A SQUIRREL!" shouts Steffany Squirrel. She is off to meet the new arrival. Following (at a somewhat slower pace) is Gabbi Griffin & Prickles Hedgehog. Cee_For Cat trails behind - he is going to check his stores in the Frozen Treasure???

Steffany quickly make the acquaintance of the new resident - called SG (short for Summer Garden) Squirrel. They happily chatter away.

Prickles sees another hedgehog & tries to make friends with it. However it is a 'here today/ gone in a click' type animal & so Prickles dips out on a new friend. He is filled with a sense of Bitter Loss. Gabbi gives Prickles a Pendant of Sympathy & together they explore the Summer Garden. Gabbi finds a wooden chest while Prickles finds a rusty one.

Cee_For did not go to the Frozen Treasure, instead he is stalking the mama bird feeding her hatchlings. Steffany spots him & raises the alarm. The Lady Reader gets very angry with Cee_For & threatens to put Cee_For in the rusty chest she thrusts at him. "GO!" she says "And don't come back until you can behave!" Cee_For flicks his tail in disdain & stalks off.

For her part in avoiding a minor crisis in the Summer Garden, the Lady Reader gives Steffany a gold chest. Steffany is pleased to have both a gold chest & a new friend.

The trio hurry home to tell everyone all about the lovely new garden.

Hehe, you are so right about that hedgehog in the Summer Garden! My Hedwig has been stealing all my Masks of Pursuit, gets all moody after searching that HOS and throws rusty chests at me in horrible tantrums... all this ever since the garden morphed!

Noting the empty cage hanging on the Castle wall, Fireball Phoenix went in search of the Count. He told the Count that a relative on his mother's side - a Red Firebird (called RedBird) - was currently homeless & searching for some place to live. Fireball politely asked if RedBird could make his home in the empty cage. The Count was agreeable. On the day that RedBird moved in, Fireball went to visit at the Castle Gates. Perdita Pegasus also went along as did Pup Puppy.

Perdita was looking for her ribbons to hold back her flowing mane. The last time she could remember having them was at the Broken Well when one snagged on the well edge. So Perdita was going to see if she could find them. While Pup was going just because he did not want to be left behind.

Perdita was searching the ground around the Broken Well while Pup ran around the Well rim peering inside to see if they had fallen into the well. Overbalancing, as he usually does, Pup fell into the Well. Luckily, the Well was dry & full of "stuff". Pup dug through the "stuff" & found Perdita's ribbons. He also found a silver chest & a rusty chest which he was not leaving behind. The trick was getting out of the Well with his 'finds'. After several attempts, he had to ask Perdita to help. Perdita had to take the chests before she could rescue Pup. Pup gave her the silver chest & kept the rusty one for himself.

Meanwhile Fireball introduced himself to RedBird - a rather large bird with a 'frosty' manner. Off-put by the 'frosty' manner & stern look, Fireball made his visit short & sweet. For finding somewhere for him to live, RedBird gave Fireball a gold chest as a thank you gift.

Pleased with their haul, the three pets headed home.

I have some sad news to impart. The Wise Dragon in the Tower is going on an extended business trip & he is not sure when or even if he will return. While he is gone, Anabel & her knight will be in charge of keeping the Mystery Chamber safe. They will move into the Tower. It will be very odd without him here.

As a thank you for all he has done for the Castle & to wish him a safe trip, we are having a 'Bon Voyage' party in the Tower. It is just some nibbles & a few drinks - nothing grand but that is the way the Dragon wanted it. All the pets were invited. The Dragon told them "At times, you have infuriated me & at other times, you have entertained me so I have planned a surprise for you pets. It's a treasure hunt in my Tower. I have given the bulk of my fortune to the Count to help restore the Castle & have left enough resources to aid Anabel in her duties. But I kept 19 chests just for you pets." Have fun looking!

Cee_For Cat, Snazzy Snail & Gabbi Griffin headed for the Scroll Storage. Cee_For sweet-talked the cherub into parting with a wooden chest while Gabbi & Snazzy found a wooden chest each on the shelves. They returned to the dragon to show off their 'finds'.

Heather Hippo investigated the top of the staircase while Petunia Pig looked under the stairs. Heather found a rusty chest & Petunia found a gold chest. They went back to the Dragon. The Dragon was vastly amused watching the pets hunt his domain. Fireball Phoenix slipped in behind the Dragon & found a cannon. In its barrel was a gold chest. "Mine!" said Fireball.

Pauly Parrot & Hoppy Tiger went to check out the Mosaic Panel. Hoppy tried to make the acquaintance of the tiger face in the corner but was ignored. While Pauly was disappointed to find the parrot was only a stained glass picture. They did, however, find a rusty chest each. Happy Turtle & Hooter Owl joined them - more to check out the big snake but they, too, found a rusty chest each.

The remainder of the pets continued the treasure hunt.

Steffany Squirrel & Bright-Eyes Lemur scooted up onto the portcullis. They looked all over it & each found a silver chest. Excitedly they returned to everyone else.

Cuddles Panda, Emerald Dragon & Sebastian Seal went up the stairs to see if the Book of Evil had anything hidden. While Cuddles & Emerald hunted all around the gargoyle Bookstand, Sebastian dived into the Book of Evil. He found a silver chest. Meanwhile, the gargoyle gave Cuddles & Emerald a silver chest each.

Only 4 pets to go. They went to the Writing Corner. Pup Puppy, in his usual 'klutzy' fashion, knocked over a chair & a pile of books. Mandy Manticore picked everything up. While doing so, she found a silver chest. Prickles Hedgehog crawled under the table & found a silver chest. Perdita Pegasus found a silver chest inside the table opening. All 3 trooped back to the party.

Pup was most dejected when he went back to the Dragon. The Dragon laughed & moved his foot to reveal a silver chest for Pup.

All pets had their treasure & had had fun hunting for it. The pets were all in high spirits as we went home.

The Keeper of Wishes summoned me to the Mystery Chamber. She was so fearful for her existence that she had decided to go into hiding. Before she left, she had one last wish to grant - my wish. The Keeper asked if I would give my wish to the Count and as I knew how lonely my uncle was for his family, I agreed to give my wish to Count Vesnik. He promptly wished for the safe return of his wife & daughter. The Keeper slipped away. When his family arrived, he wanted to move out of the Throne Room as it was not secure enough for his wife & daughter. Now that the Keeper was gone, he decided to move into the Mystery Chamber. Some of the pets were roped in to clean the Mystery Chamber prior to the move.

Cuddle Panda found a Secret Slab which he cleaned. He found a gold chest hidden in its depths. Meanwhile Hooter Owl revisited the Wise Owl in the Tree of Knowledge. Together they cleaned their area. The Wise Owl gave Hooter a rusty chest as a thank you. (Note to self: I really must get Hooter to see that eye doctor.)

Steffany Squirrel & Bright Eyes Lemur washed down the Column of the Fallen after having a game of tag up & down it. The Column was grateful for the clean-up job but not at all impressed with being a raceway for spirited youngsters. He ended up giving both Steffany & Bright Eyes a rusty chest each.

Prickles Hedgehog cleaned, tidied & polished the Shining Split until it was - well - shining! For his efforts he received a gold chest.

Gabbi Griffin flew up to the Chained Eagles & had a great time chatting as she helped the eagles tidy their area. A rusty chest was her reward.

Rusty chests were also given to Mandy Manticore, Pup Puppy, Sebastian Seal & Happy Turtle who all bustled around cleaning & tidying the Chamber itself. However they all left the Heart of the Chamber alone. It was too hot to touch.

The Count was very pleased with the clean-up & he thanked the pets for a job well done! He then moved his family into the Mystery Chamber. We left them alone to settle in.
