I'd be happy to score a draw if my opponent gets his rooks into my Royal Court (2nd rank for white and 7th for Black).

The reason for this should be more of less obvoius: with the rooks on the board you force white to be rather passive (and should white even attempt to trade then either Rxa2 or Rxg2 will pick up a pawn). In that position I was considering something like h5 (with the idea of h4 and getting a N-outpost at g3).
However, Ng5 looks promising, so lets consider this move in more depth:
