Rose Castle [Evil Lair]

Rose Castle appears to be made up of a few dozen giant roses, it is surrounded by brambled walls. Each of the battlements are topped with rose peddles and each tower supporting a giant bud. Other than the Rose structure, this is otherwise a normally built castle, it has several walls, a moat, and even an entry gate.

Pelgof approaches the gate on foot, crossing the moat and entering the castle.
Moxie

The castle looks pretty green on the inside, but lacks the thorns. The gate closes behind him.
Xaspian

He looks at it appreciatively, before beginning to explore. He could probably magically summon a map or something, but sometimes it's more interesting to discover things the old-fashioned way.
Moxie

He may realize that the tunnels inside the walls are actually giant, hallow stems. They wrap around themselves and weave in weird patterns. It might get disorientating for him, if he heads down, he'll find the courtyard, if he heads up, he'll find himself in a tower.
Xaspian

He arrives in the courtyard. On the way, he looks at any rooms if he passes any, to see what sort of facilities this place has.
Moxie

It is actually well stocked. Each of the rooms has red teardrop shaped walls, reaching an apex where a lamp or chandelier hangs down, and yellow floor. It probably won't take long for him to realize that these rooms are actually giant flowers, though they lack the perfume and pollen of such.
Xaspian

It's all very impressive.

So, what leads off from the courtyard? Pelgof picks a random path.
Moxie

Regina returns to her Lair.
Obscurejones

Thokk slinks in, trying to escape notice.  But he's not exactly built for sneak.
Moxie

The Lair seems to allow Thokk to enter and leads him to Regina.
Obscurejones

Evening... Do you have an official title yet?
He does his best to seem relatively calm.
Moxie

"Regina, in my native tongue, means 'Queen.' I've always had a title, just never any power." Regina replies, sitting on a thrown.
Obscurejones

Well in that case, Evening Regina.  I notice the castle seemed to lead me here.  Would you have words with me?
He leaves his sword where it is but ventures a hand towards his dagger.
Moxie

"Well, actually, I'd like you to go Trog's and keep an eye on the place." Regina replies.
Obscurejones

Not to question your word but I believe if I go there the bar wench may kill me.  I tend to object to dying.
Moxie

"Bar wench is willing to kill me, I don't think she'll attack you if you keep a low profile."
Obscurejones

He nods and makes for the exit.
Xaspian

"Not a bad place. A bit empty, though."
Pelgof strolls through the nearest doorway.
Moxie

"People will show up eventually. Anyways, we'll convince Trog's to convert to paper money. I ask you this, how do you kill a tree without cutting down it's trunk?" Regina replies.
Xaspian

"Several ways. You could wait until it dies naturally, you could deprive it of light and oxygen, you could incinerate it. I'd guess those aren't the answers that fit your metaphor, though."
Pelgof knows his place. Even if he knows the correct answer, it's the right of an evil overlord to explain things to their underling.
Moxie

"All very good, but depriving it of light and oxygen is the closest. I would also have accepted targeting the roots or pruning the leaves. See, we want to force the conversion, we're going to require that any trader dealing with Trog's will have to use new paper money, meanwhile supplying a good deal of farmers and local businesses with this new currency to spend in exchange for gold. With most of the supply and the demand dealing with new currency, the trunk will have to accept or perish." Regina replies, "I was doing her a favor with a warning and she shrugged me off. If she's lucky, I'll buy out Trog's myself and she'll be forced to work under me."
Moxie

Regina's busy casting a spell. Or maintaining one.
