It appears to Hoyle that Thomas bought the illusion, and if so he will look at the rest of his friends and shrug his shoulders and open his hands in a gesture of asking what should we do? He makes a gesture with his hand of following them with a questioning expression on his face.
Joshua nods at Hoyle. But then holds a hand up and whispers quietly "Distance". He will then start to quietly follow them at a distance, knowing they are going to a cave in the easy so not minding if he loses sight of them
(reroll stealth or use same? And if reroll, Talon has his d6 inspiration for 10 minutes from when we got here, so should have it still)
Klaus thinks to himself if they are playing a prank on some innocent kid then the taste of dirt would maybe deter future pranks but he also values Arric's point of view. Giving Arric a nod of understanding he continues forward.
“Well, then we’ll have more than a prank gone wrong. No one in town would accept that.” Arric leans towards the Talon and puts a hand on his shoulder while smiling gently. “Don’t worry, we won’t let them hurt anyone, I’ll make sure of it.”
The path into the deeper part of the forest shows no traps but it is clear that it is not a place that is travelled. You have to use game trails but the Thomas and his small crew make it easy for you. Now that they are sure that are not followed they take no precaution to be silent.
Hick in particular seems to think that the whole thing is a bad idea but as always he follows Thomas.
( I ll ask for a survival or perception check please. Don't need all of you to make it just one above DC 15. )
