#AtoZChallenge: Jump into the castle!

For those who are here for the first time, this is an interactive fiction adventure. I will write a scene every day, and my visitors will vote for where they want the story to go next, by leaving a comment on the post. You can start from the beginning here.

J:
Sir Andrew surveyed the scene inside the castle walls. A massive T-Rex was near the castle gate, terrorizing all mammalian creatures who came near. His deep roars shook the castle walls. A Brontosaurus took up most of the rest of the main courtyard, with his long tail sweeping across the open area, almost penning the T-Rex into position. Small reptiles ran hither and thither, carrying out various tasks or waiting to be directed. In the close corner of the scene was a giant pile of hay. Sir Andrew ran along the rampart until he was situated just above the pile, took a deep breath to steady himself, and jumped off the wall onto the pile of hay.
"Oof!" he said as he landed clunkily into the pile. A very tiny little reptile came out from its burrow in the hay, looked at him in stark surprise, and scurried off to another corner. Andy burrowed into the hay a bit to further consider his choices.

What should Sir Andrew do?
Run into the Keep proper,
Walk up to a reptile and demand to see the reptile King,
or Do his Knightly duty and start doing away with the reptiles.

I've always wanted to use the phrase 'hither and thither' in a story :D
