Why would I go anywhere else?

Adarin - realizes he's one of the most shut in members of the household. It makes sense, really. He's their shield, if bandits or other nasty people show up it is up to him to keep them safe, like it is up to Jony to make the garden and Kesaven expands the house and keeps it in repair. Besides, where would he even go? All of his favorite people are right here. He'd be lonely if he went on the trips to the market.

So when there is a yelp from downstairs that sounds like it's from Tima, he's in the house and not outside chopping firewood, or at the market. He is upstairs, and he hears it, and he sprints downstairs and prepares to shield and -

And then he is eaten by a giant snake with a mirror for a face.

And now he is in a quiet, deserted hallway.

It's more opulent than anything he's heard of, let alone seen, in his entire life, but it doesn't look designed to show off - just to be beautiful and comfortable while there is an underlying total unconcern for things like "alabaster is expensive" and "opals scratch easily". The opals inlaid in the floor aren't scratched right now, though. There isn't dust on the ivory frame of that mirror or the swirls of carved mahogany indentations on the wall. The chandelier is lit with inexplicable glow: no fire. Must be an artifact.

All the doors in the hallway are closed. There's a big window at the end of the hall. It shows a gorgeous valley. If he goes up to it, and looks down, he will see that he's in a building that sits placidly in the middle of a river, just a few meters back from the edge of a tremendous waterfall.

Silence. The window-glass shimmers with subtle rainbows.

This door leads to a smallish, round chamber, lit without even an obvious artifact involved, with no other doors and no furniture.

The ceiling is just sort of glowing all by itself. And the silver columns decorating the curved walls, those are also glowing.

Bedroom. Contains a bed, an open door to a closet, seating, cozy soft carpet in rich blue, a window displaying very weird plants (among more typical ones) beyond the river -

Bed's occupied.

She doesn't react to being shoved. Just moves with his hand, then settles back into place, breathing steady and soft.

She is still asleep.

The palace has:

1) Four stories, each of which has a pointless circular room, and a tower.

2) A greenhouse wing with more funky plants in it.

3) A big front hall with lots of stairs, which will get him to all of the floors.

4) A large dining room, but only a very small kitchen, without any food in it at all.

5) A huge library.

6) Guest rooms, unoccupied.

7) An underground side exit that leads under the river to a flight of safely railing'd switchback stairs carved neatly into the cliffside, leading to a path to the valley town.

8) Lots of pretty decorative things.

9) A reasonable number of bathrooms.

10) No people besides the sleeping girl.

The library has lots of books in it.

They are not written in a familiar language.

Pretty wide selection. Histories of countries he's never heard of. Novels. Cookbooks. Cryptography and architecture and gardening and 101 Fun Flying Tricks. Atlases of continents that don't look right. There's a large section devoted to what appear to be handwritten personal notes.

So you're a new sorcerer! After you've notified your local government and given them something to contact you with so they can have you on call in the event of sorcery-needing eventualities, you'll want to have fun with flying. It's mostly instinct, but instinct won't show you these thrilling stunts! (Note: Tricks 50-101 require momentum beyond that required for basic flying, or help from a more advanced sorcerer.)
