The Citadel of Chaos

You walk forward into a spacious open courtyard surrounded by large walls.
Various lights are burning and groups of figures are shuffling around in the darkness.
In the centre of the courtyard is a large monument of some kind — perhaps a fountain.
Looking across the yard you can see what appears to be the main entrance to the tower.

Will you:

Creep around the wall towards the tower ?

Stride boldly across the courtyard ?

Tiptoe through the shadows towards one of the groups ?
