The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I decide to pull out an old vacuum cleaner and throw it at the ghost or any new enemy
You get your old vacuum cleaner out for the next fight.
It never occurred to the lone traveller how he had a party of 6 before he even entered the castle, but the traveller didn't mind. He decides to check the stats.
The traveller wonders why he bothered. Maybe he might obtain some skills and equipment in the future, along with his crew.
The party of 6 enters the castle. The traveller notes to himself that the layout seems to have changed from the last time he was there.
The party walks across the hallways, when they come to a halt. There's a fork. 3 ways. On the left you can hear human guards shouting. They've noticed the fight outside, you deduce. In the middle road, you can hear ghastly whispering. On the right, you can hear impacts and sudden explosions. Wizards.
