Just a brief play before bed. I’ve wandered past the Garden now, and into another part of the castle. There I found Dmitri, or whatever his name is, fighting some thing that threw balls at him. He killed it, and there was some conversation regarding Dmitri’s ability to copy magic attacks. Then I had to fight him. He started by throwing balls at me, but after I’d hit him once with my thrown-through-an-arc axe move, he then did that to me instead. Which actually made him very, very easy, since the axes arced harmlessly over me as I stood next to him and killed him.
Went and saved, then went into the next chamber after Dmitri, to find a black vampirey-type bloke to kill. He fired dark orbs and bats at me, and after a short fight I died. Tch.
