Glynquinal adds to the conversation, "I'd rather see if we can gather some more information on where the Wizard is as well as if anything new has turned up on Gundren. We can't do that here, or if we get dead because we walked in blindly to a trap."
OOC: Ian has the lead at that point so I would say that would be his call.
Once back in to town proper, Glynquinal will return to his room at the tavern, and immediately request a hot bath be set up for him, (After checking the chest in his room to make sure it has not been tampered with).
Ian says to the party after they get back into town (before everyone goes their separate ways): Fellas, we need to decide what happens next. I know we all want to rest, but if we rest now, the element of surprise is lost. The redbrands will see the work we have done - you know the dead bodies and all.... - and will either shore up their defenses or come looking for the responsible party. Maybe even try to murder us in our sleep...I know you all want to rest, but I implore you, return with me to the hideout, and lets make use of our element of surprise before they can regain their footing. Maybe we can find a potion or brew to help in your healing, but I really think we need to go back now.
What do you all think? Shall we return, and chop the head off the snake?
Glynquinal reminds Ian, "In order to cut off the snakes head, it has to be found. We have no information on exactly where that Wizard is. Resting might take away the element of surprise if we even have now. How do we know for sure it hasn't already been lost? Time to gather information, and rest and regroup."
The group follows Ian northward, following the edge of the crevasse to the northern (unbroken) bridge. As they walk, Mirna encourages Nars to hurry along and not lag behind. The party members in the back see the boy is distracted looking down into the crevasse. After Ian finds the bridge to be safe, the others cross and begin moving south. Not very far, Mirna asks, "What, Nars?" in an almost impatient tone. Those behind the three see the boy pointing into the crevasse. His mother follows his gesture and then gasps, her hand flying to cover her mouth. Nilsa looks as well and screams, "Daddy!" Nars buries his face in Mirna's arm. Not looking at the others, but speaking to them, Mirna says emotionally, "That's ... that's Thel. My husband. I think that's his body."
Ian to the group We should retrieve the body, so that the family may grieve in their own time. I am not strong enough to go and get him. Gruxx or Rock, would either of you mind going down to get the body?
Ian ties a rope around the nearest rock formation in a way that the group can help lower and raise someone down into the crevasse.
