I can summon up to 3 hippogriffs, but likely you will be pushing the upper limits of its carrying capacity, Bastion. I think they can carry the rest of us easy enough. They will last only long enough to carry us up, but it should just get the job done. We can have it carry the ropes as well, so we can retreat down quickly if needed. He looks to Bastion for approval before casting.
Out of Character: If Bastion has a better plan, he will follow that instead, but I am going to go ahead and make these rolls, just so we don't have to wait too long. I'll do 1d6 for the 1d3, with 1-2 being 1, 3-4 being 2, and 5-6 being 3.
Avan fills the mug twice more before indicating the gathered Gnolls should cup their hands together. He tests the anti-magic properties of the cage as he tries to cast Create Water to fill everyone's hands.
He searches for which one looks the strongest or bravest and offers them his meal, since his own Ring of Sustenance should be enough to satisfy, hoping that magic items still work. If so, anyone with a visible injury or is extremely weak receives a tap from the wand of cure light wounds.
Out of Character: Just tell me how many charges I consumed if it works.
When Albrecht gets to the top and secures ropes for everyone else, Bastion will help coordinates the others in scaling the cliff.
When everyone is secure up above, he'll start looking around, both outside and within the cliff area, watching for any signs of Avan, along with whatever he can discern of what the gnolls or draconids are up to.

Once, Rivoril is at the top he also searches the area for any signs of recent Gnoll, or Draconid activity.
Including, looking back down from the clifface, in all dirrections. Including, searching for signs of Avan.
All the while, doing so in a stealthy, manner.
Bastion says, "Hmph, same situation as last night, but we're now short one druid. Does anyone have an idea on how to at least confirm whether or not Avan is still alive?"
The Warforged has an idea that may help, and starts looking about for a boulder or loose section of the cliff, something that could be dropped as a counterweight.
Avan rummages around in his Handy Haversack, thinking about the things he put in there. He puts his head through the interdimensional opening and realises he has one useful item. He pulls out his flask of acid.
Looking around the cage for a few weak points, he tests a few drops of the acid in that spot. Most likely it's the door hinges.
Out of Character: Unfortunately no ranks in knowledge(Archiecture and engineering) which may have been useful.
