Atallia takes a spear, practicing with it half as a staff, half as a spear. "Yes, this will do nicely," she thought. She discards her stolen drow shortsword and picks up two waterskins.
Finnan looks over the stuff and claims a water-skin and a belt pouch. He also takes the whetstone and sits down with it, pulling out his beloved tome he begins to examine the runes and compares them to the information in his tome.
While the party searches the gnolls the rest of the former prisoners make their way into the strangely lit cavern. Everyone but Ront is glad to have missed the "excitement". Finding a bit of treasure on the pack lord once regrouped the large party heads out together knowing that in a few hours they will need to start looking for a place to bed down.
Finding the time to go over everything they found the group now has a chance to decide who should get/hold onto what.
