Out of Character: I forgot to include my spot, listening and search skills, while on watch. Will include two rounds worth here. He also has, low light vision, and immunity to sleep. He, looks surprised to see the thick grey liquid Bastion holds up, used for his own healing.

Avan tries to call down one last time, this time trying to establish some rapport in Common. "Help us help you. We want to kill your captors as much as you do, and free you from these cages, but I need to know some things. Where did these things come from? When did it happen? What do they want? Are there any magic users among them, or do they only breathe fire? Do you need food or drink? Healing?"
His voice turning hoarse, Avan decides to stop and wait for a response. If he hears nothing, he gives up and goes to have a rest. First he uses his rod to cast an extended Light (Lasting 100 minutes) on a stone that he drops into the mouth (Gap in the north) of the horseshoe canyon to light to area for Bastion. As a final action, he casts Detect Snares and Pits to find any crude or natural traps or weak points that may remain on top of the ridge or along the wall 60' down (The spell's range).
He goes to the body of Fluffles, allowing himself some time to mourn properly, eventually falling sleep under the stars, bow ready beside him. He will be on last watch at the top of the climbable wall.

Bastion will begin his watch. He'll fire at anyone who gets out in the open towards the exit of the box canyon, and a warning shot towards anyone who looks like they're preparing for a rush.
After deliberating with the others, Bastion will set about shifting everyone, Krama and the body of Mr Fluffles included, back down the cliff as rapidly as can be managed. For the latter two, with Albrecht calming the bear, he'll rig up a simple harness.
Bastion will quickly check around and get the wagon ready to go. Hauling himself up on Arion, he gets moving on the warhorse.
The group will make for a defensible cave they'd already scouted to spend the night and recove, not the same one they'd used last time.
Avan helps scout the caves as we search for a defensible hiding place for the night.
Out of Character: Sorry for my extended absence. There were many issues that prevented me from getting online and posting like I wanted to. I think I am caught up on where we are, and I'll just try to jump back in.
In Character: Albrecht is in shock as the group finishes dispatching the last warder, he can't believe that Fluffles was killed. He quickly heals Krama and makes sure everyone else is okay, before allowing his grief at losing not only a party member, but such a majestic creature of nature. He is vaguely aware that two new people join the party, but no one else seems up in arms about it, so he just lets it happen. He does his best to calm Krama as Bastion rigs a harness to lower her down from the plateau. He then goes with the group to the cave. He lies down for some rest, allowing himself to surrender completely to his tired condition. If someone wakes him for a watch, he will take it without hesitation, but otherwise, he will sleep through the night and wake in the morning feeling much better about everything as he communes with nature and finds his center again.
