"The hidden door is opening!

"Which one?

"The one with the ever-widening hole!"

Firesign Theater aside this is interesting. If it took BOTH of them to move it, it's not likely something Amber made regular use of. As an Orc, Ronuk is styronger than Amber, but not stronger than the combined strength of Veja and Arua. Add to that the stubbornness of said door, and the amount of dust stirred hints at it not being opened in a loooong while. Since original construction...hard to say.

As for what said door is going there: well, doors leading off from a kitchen could lead to wine cellars, or larders, or any kind of storage. Brone was familiar with the turbulent weather there and conceivably have intended it as an emergency panic cellar. All the other obvious reasons for a hidden door, concealing a hidden room, hint at something at least a bit sinister going on.

Or it could have been a secret research facility to develop movable ears on Tauren. (Sorry, watching a documentary on "Vozrozhdeniya Island" nee Voz Island, a former soviet biological research facility.) Ignore my comment on the previous page.

I was thinking about the ears. Well I haven't looked closely at Tauren ears lately I did look at Arua's ears and it occurred to me that she might have hearing problems.

By looking at her ears we can see that they are "coned" but the cone is on backwards. It narrows at the tip and widens where it connects to her head. This would be bad for hearing as the narrow part is poor for catching sound waves and the widening would make it difficult to guide sound into the ear drum.

This is a big of a joke of course. No Arua does not have hearing problems it's just art work and well I have used Tauren ears in the past, it's connected to emotion such as fear or surprise.

I think it's safe to say that entertainment does not strictly follow the rules of reality because reality is boring! If reality wasn't boring we wouldn't need to make entertainment.

What's so great about reality:

It was just my mind working, not an important point. To me ears are a part of character personality, so what you describe sounds perfectly fine. We don't have any live Tauren models to draw from.
