Out of Character: I agree sounds like a good plan, considering Rivorils climbing skills aren't much better.
The already secured rope, enables us to retreat as before.
Out of Character: That could work, but that's kind of a last resort idea anyways, this is a bad situation all around.
In Character: "Hmph, nothing suitable. Can anyone write draconic? It may be time to start talking."
Bastion thumbs his axe, frustrated. The smart play would be to just leave, let them stew in their own juices for a while. But Avan is down there, somewhere, maybe in one of the cages, maybe already dead, and he's not about to abandon the man who saved him.
"Hmm, going down from here really isn't an option. They'd be surrounding us and we'd have no reliable means of escape."
"Let's put the war wagon to use. Back it up towards the cave entrance, and use it as cover as we make our challenge known from that point. If they respond with force, we should be able to bleed them and back off. Agreed?"

Rivoril, hears the frustration from Bastion, and chimes in.
" I think your right, we are seeming to run out of options. Maybe if we attack, using the wagon as cover. Is the only way out,?"
"Bastion, do we have any caltraps in the wagon? I may be able to place them out strategically before we make our move,?" Rivoril adds.
Out of Character: Rivoril has a +6 mod to craft a trap.Just an idea, to help thin them out. Rivoril has 1lb of acid (Flask). If that's any help?
Otherwise, he has short bows, for ranged attack, and short sword for melee. I'm sorry, I don't have any other ideas.
I look at Bastion, "With our current position, we can't even see down there. Will it change once we are down by the cave? If so, I think it would be our only option at this point."
Bastion shakes his head, "No caltrops I am afraid. As to the visibility, we don't seem to have a counter for it. We'll just have to remain together and use the fog against them as much as we can."
Out of Character: Good luck with the escape attempt Icon. Hopefully it works.
I'm glad you saw an opportunity, I was afraid Avan would be returned, dead. But I didn't see any choice but to let it play out.
