The early morning sun shone in through the high windows of the Grand Hall. Down below, Lord Dragonator was starting the day off…
Hello all and welcome to another day of Mystery Castle! I’m your host Lord Dragonator, and-
You know, this sounds a lot like the introduction to a certain other EB channel.
What! No it doesn’t! And who are you anyway?
I’m Staudie, the new commentator!
Right. Why are you dressed like that?
You don’t remember me, do you?
No, not really.
I did an interview with you not long ago in this very castle!
You’re that Staudie! Oh no…
The one and only!
That still doesn’t explain why you’re dressed like that.
Ah, well, you see, I was told to dress for the occasion, and this is the only thing medieval-looking I had.
I know! You’d think they’d at least give me a decent costume. Hey, can I eat that chicken?
No! I’m saving it for later, depending on how good breakfast looks. The cook these days is very shifty. I don’t even know who it is now.
Yes, it is bad, isn’t it? Who could possibly be responsible for that? Not me for sure.
Well, that’s all good, but we better tell them all what happened during the night.
Yes, I’ll do that!
Hey, that’s my job!
Oh, is it?
Go ahead then, don’t mind us.
The night went by fairly quietly, with only the occasional scream and loud bang to disturb the silence. In the morning, Kyle quietly executed Fred, a member of the Royal Guard, who had been convicted the previous day.
When the people where assembled, it was announced that Fred was discovered to be a loyalist. They cried out in despair, and much hair pulling took place (not necessarily of their own hair). Then they decided to settle down and find a traitor. Time was running out; soon it would be too late…
Thanks for that touching dialogue.
I really feel a need for a tissue.
I really feel a need for the toilet.
That kind of ruined the moment you know.
Yeah, hey, who’s this?
That would be Majiko.
Why so sad Mr. Wizard?
I can’t find my staff. Someone’s stolen it, I’m sure.
You’ll find it soon enough. You probably left in some corner or something.
I guess so.
30 seconds or so later…
I don’t suppose you’d like to explain yourself.
Sorry, I’m being chased by a crazed walrus. It’s not my fault, really!
Hey Hinckley, what are you doing here?
Oh you know, the usual, getting a good dose of ego and such.
Hey, aren’t you a competitor?
Maybe, maybe not.
Why are you talking in orange? That’s Ragnir’s colour.
I always talk in orange. Besides, you'll notice it's a slightly different shade, right Ragnir?
Great, well, time is ticking, and we need to wrap this up.
Yes, time to say goodbye for now!

Here it is, the long awaited day 11. And I’m sure more fun awaits you. Tomorrow, I’ll, be posting the next challenge. It leads on from today’s opening post, which gives you a bit of a clue. In fact, it happens only minutes after Staudie says goodbye. Anyway, you’ll find out tomorrow.
The building challenge voting will stay open another week, we currently have a draw for one of the prizes. Presentations shall be made in Day 12. I think that’s everything, so good luck, and catch those traitors!
