A mist surrounds the castle, making it seem impenetrable. Just when you cannot seem to find any entrance to the fortress, the mist parts and you see a pathway leading straight to the lady statue. Before you go any further, you find on your cloak a note, apparently from Dr. Winter:
The site before you requires something more
than a mere hiker. It is why you are dressed
like you are. This cloak was made by my
minions and possesses qualities beyond
mere insulation. It grants its wearer all that I
had promised earlier before your hybernation:
like me, you should have all the feline qualities
that come with being just like me.
Explore the castle.
You will know what I want when you find it.
Dr. Winter is sending you on a mission to explore the castle before you. He apparently wants something from it; perhaps he wants it destroyed, or to retrieve whatever caused it to form in the first place.
You enter the fog and it closes behind you. Somehow she has cloned herself: there are now two statues standing side by side when moments before you entered the mist there was only one.
The lady on the left appears watchful, expectant, and serious. She looks like the original statue, as if waiting on someone; she has been painted green. The lady on the right also appears watchful, expectant, and serious but her dress appears ragged: she has been painted red. Both statues hold in their hands long swords which cross to bar the way to the castle entrance. The inscription on the statues reads:
Choose Between Us.
Which of Us is Real?
You find on the snow covered ground a key. It looks similar to the keys you had recovered from the bridge: a metalic blade protruding out from a white marble ball the size of a human eye. You notice both statues have a round lock right below each neck.
**This is where trails are mixed and paths are weaved, Now is the place where a Choice is conceived. **
