"Well, okay.." he says, carefully following him up the ancient, spiraling stairway. They reach the top of the tower, but nothing really interesting seems to be there. In fact, all that's up there are the remains of what looks like several ancient chests, all magically preserved and in pristine condition.
"Don't be to sure; these chests could have anything inside them," he says, stepping up to one of them and trying the lid. "Locked..." he mutters. "I can try and pick the locks, but it could take a bit." He turns to Nico, "You might as well look through more of the castle while I do this. I can't leave these unsearched."

The place seems pretty big, to, even in ruins. Still, Nico can't seem to escape the feeling that he's being... watched, by something. After a few minutes, though, he hears a scream coming from the tower Star Gazer was in.

When he looks inside the chest, he sees nothing but black, instead of the expected interior of the chest. It doesn't even seem to be a chest as much as an entrance t osome kind of black void, obviously magicaly crafted. It seems that poor Star Gazer must have leaned to far in and fallen into it.

When he jumps in, he's in free fall for a few seconds until he hits solid ground, or what seems to be solid ground, at least. He's standing on a pale white, floating strip of solid ground in a pitch black, starry void. He doesn't hear a single sound at all, save for hoof steps approaching him from behind at a quick pace. It was Star Gazers voice that called out from behind him, "Nico, what are you doing here!?"
