Nikolaos will give bardic inspiration which is a d8 and guidance which is a d4 to whoever rolls.
Edit: I suggest leaving one sending stone at the castle in case of trouble.

Kingowl, you might want to just go ahead and roll for it if you want. No need to prolong this. Everyone is ready to get this moving. I don't know if you can use inspiration for yourself??
Good call on the stones. I could have Velon buy a second pair such that the party has a pair (In case they are forced to split up) and so one can be left with Esmerandia at all times.
At least we have the Sending spell, but I know it's once a day or something of the sort.
He can't use it on himself but Perry could use one if willing.
As far as having the party split Nikolaos picked up a horn of silent alarm so he can communicate quietly up to 600' away, 4 times a day.
Edit: looks like Zarra posted so we should probably go with her rolls.

Wait a second, I thought using inspiration was an advantage not a d8 roll… or am I getting bardic inspiration mixed up with the inspiration mechanic? Of any case of bardic inspiration, if it is a d8, I'll see about rolling that here.

Bardic inspiration is a d8 and is a separate mechanic from inspiration. Much like the problem with spell level and other uses of level in Dungeons & Dragons it's easy to conflate.
Only one person can get the Bardic Inspiration at a time, unless you keep singing non stop? Same with Guidance - only one person gets the benefit until it's used and cast again. If we are all adding to Zarra, she'll be super-tracker! :D
Advantage, History, Guidance, B.I. What else?
Nikolaos could always polymorph himself into a bloodhound or a wolf to help out that way. He would need someone else to cast guidance though because they are both concentration. :D.
