Flint hurriedly gulps down what's left in his mug before standing up with the others.

Goldmoon stood silent a moment, gripping the staff in both hands before she sighed out. "Riverwind is right, we will come with you."
The cooked stared at them as they ran through the kitchen. Caramon and Raistlin were already at the exit, which was nothing more than a hole cut in the floor. A rope hung from a sturdy limb above the hole and dropped forty feet to the ground...
... "I'm sorry about this," Tika apologized to Goldmoon, "but it is the only way out of here."

Sturm stands just inside the door to the kitchen and looks at Tanis. "I will go last. Make sure the others get clear first."

Scout (Lvl 6)
As the party starts going down the rope, Riverwind needs to make a quick decision as to whether to proceed or follow Goldmoon. Given that that they don't know what is ahead but they know that danger is behind them, he decides to go after her. Knowing better than to try to help her, he simply stays alert while saying "After you princess."
Once Goldmoon is safely down the rope he will sheaf his sword and climb down.

Raistlin & Caramon
"Looks like pretty long fall if you loose your grip. Raist, shall I carry you? You have to hold your books and staff and your health since..." Caramon starts after looking down the hole in the floor, but is harshly silenced by Raistlin's hand gesture.
I have power now. No longer the weakling who constantly needs help. Raistlin thinks and jumps down. Caramon gasps for air, but the wizards fall slows down and he lands like a feather on the ground.
Caramon sharugs and follows on the rope, once it is his turn.

Tanis nods to Sturm
Hang on friend
He takes the rope and goes down after Caramon.
Once down, he draws his sword and tries to find an escape route.

Tas waits for the majority of his friends and companions to head down the escape rope before he goes to leave the inn himself. "Hurry up, Sturm," the kender says as only his head remains above the hole in the ground. With this said, Tas begins to climb down once again.

Magsman (Lvl 14)
The companions each make their way out of the Inn and to the ground. Once gathered Tanis quickly decides to head away from town figuring that the homes about will be the first place the guards will search.
He and Tas lead the group to an area with a few caves not a mile from the main road that leads north to Haven and south to Gateway. They reach a dry cave just as it starts to rain. A blessing from the gods? As the rain should wash away most of their tracks.
Riverwind starts a small fire as the others find spots to lay down around the small flames. It seems like old times to Tanis, even though Kit is not there. Flint looks up at the half-elf from his whilting and hrphms the dwarf knows what Tanis is thinking so clearing his throat he starts a ritual the companions have done every first night before every adventure they have ever been on together...

Canticle of the Dragon
Hear the sage as his song descends
like heaven?s rain or tears,
and washes the years, the dust of the many stories
from the High Tale of the Dragonlance.
For in ages deep, past memory and word,
in the first blush of the world
when the three moons rose from the lap of the forest,
dragons, terrible and great
made war on this world of Krynn.
Tas jumps in with his part overly excited...
Yet out of the darkness of dragons,
out of our cries for light
in the blank face of the black moon soaring,
a banked light flared in Solamnia,
a knight of truth and of power,
who called down the gods themselves
and forged the mighty Dragonlance, piercing the soul
of dragonkind, driving the shade of their wings
from the brightening shores of Krynn.
Sturm takes up the tale...
Thus Huma, Knight of Solamnia,
Lightbringer, First Lancer,
followed his light to the foot of the Khalkist Mountains,
to the stone feet of the gods,
to the crouched silence of their temple.
He called down the Lancemakers, he took on
their unspeakable power to crush the unspeakable evil,
to thrust the coiling darkness
back down the tunnel of the dragon's throat.
Tanis speaks up...
Paladine, the Great God of Good
shone at the side of Huma,
strengthening the lance of his strong right arm,
and Huma, ablaze in a thousand moons,
banished the Queen of Darkness,
banished the swarm of her shrieking hosts
back to the senseless kingdom of death, where their curses
swooped upon nothing and nothing
deep below the brightening land.
There is a pause as this was usually where Kit would speak, but Raistlin steps in speaking...
Thus ended in thunder the Age of Dreams
and began the Age of Might,
When Istar, kingdom of light and truth, arose in the east,
where minarets of white and gold
spired to the sun and to the sun's glory,
announcing the passing of evil,
and Istar, who mothered and cradled the long summers of good,
shone like a meteor
in the white skies of the just.
Raistlin continues on with his own part...
Yet in the fullness of sunlight
the Kingpriest of Istar saw shadows:
At night he saw the trees as things with daggers, the streams
blackened and thickened under the silent moon.
He searched books for the paths of Huma
for scrolls, signs, and spells
so that he, too, might summon the gods, might find
their aid in his holy aims,
might purge the world of sin.
And Caramon stammer's out his part as he hadn't recited this in over five years...
Then came the time of dark and death
as the gods turned from the world.
A mountain of fire crashed like a comet through Istar,
the city split like a skull in the flames,
mountains burst from once-fertile valleys,
seas poured into the graves of mountains,
the deserts sighed on abandoned floors of the seas,
the highways of Krynn erupted
and became the paths of the dead.
And Flint about to end the Cantile as he always does is surprised when Goldmoon speaks up and finishes...
Thus began the Age of Despair.
The roads were tangled.
The winds and the sandstorms dwelt in the husks of cities,
The plains and mountains became our home.
As the old gods lost their power,
we called to the blank sky
into the cold, dividing gray to the ears of new gods.
The sky is calm, silent, unmoving.
We have yet to hear their answer.

Magsman (Lvl 14)
The morning comes with no troubles from any of the guardsmen from Solace. The group sits around the small fire as Tanis looks over one of Tasselhoff's maps. The group is currently a few miles south of Solace near the road that leads south to Gateway and north to Haven.
When they awoke the group is surprised that all their wounds from the fight with the hobgoblins were healed. Noone on watch saw anything but Goldmoon tells them she believes it must have come from the staff, she speaks up.
"We must find out how to control the staff's powers. Before we met you Rivewind and I were on are way to Haven to speak to the Seekers there. But if you all believe there is a better place to go we will listen to what you have to say."
