He could hear them now, clamoring about how all the dogs loved them, or how they had totally learned how to tame a dragon. What fool would believe a 11 year old claiming they could train a dragon? You might as well go out looking for a kelpie in the desert. It was ridiculous how powerful some of these students claimed to be. And arguably worse were those that simply had no respect at all. No respect, or manners for that matter.
Still, he was contractually obligated to provide some way of getting in contact with him, and had set up this pull cord.
This is his equivalent of an office. You can pull on the cord as hard as you want, it won't come off. The silk is slightly stretchy, however, so it will have some give to let you know you pulled hard enough. If you pull on the cord, he may or may not come. This is for IC questions. If your character just wanted to pull on the cord to see what happens, that is allowed as well, however you can also just make a separate thread for that.
Pulling the cord does not produce any noticeable sound or reaction. You cannot Roleplay hearing me come to the door, me coming to the door or anything of the sort. You may, however, hear miscellaneous creature sounds coming from inside. Roars, screams screeches etc. Have "fun" Roleplaying.
