Geoffrey considers the situation, glad to have broken free of the black tentacles which bound him and that the duergar had retreated. Much to his concern, he found many wishing to go after them even though it was a battle that was neither planned and could not be possibly avoided. Still, this was the fastest route so he could see way many of the party still wanted to continue ahead.
Looking to those asking his decision, that of Fay and Lia in particular, he says, “There is risk in moving forward, yet possibly risk no matter where we go. This path is known by our guide, however long he stays with us, and is what we have for the map as the fastest route. Yet there may be more duergar, and if we use up our spells there may be other dangers we are not prepared for once we get out of here.”
Yet Geoffroy makes the decision, say, “Lets continue on and hope we can avoid another confrontation, see if we can sneak past them. If we must fight, we will, but mainly lets just try to get out of the Undermountain as quickly as possible.” The Morningliege hoped a mistake wasn't being made, but will go with the majority if that is what they wished to do.
Continuing, he adds, “Anyone in the need of more healing on the way, or do they feel it is okay to wait. Lia and Velon, how fair thee?” Geoffory wanted to make sure no one had too great of injury.
