"I am sorry Lia. It is an impossible situation. If there are any you see fit to bring back, perhaps after speaking to any wise members of the village remaining, you should do as you think is best. Perhaps they have a healer, spiritual leader, or village elder that will be needed for them to carry on. I will have words with any in our party that have a problem with your choice."
From afar, Velon sees Poljen stand after his ritual of sorts with Trammet. He says softly to Lia from a few feet away "They have something." "Take a moment longer if you need." He gets up and goes over to see what Poljen and the others have learned.
After a recap, Velon asks "Did their mage tell us of the tactics of this elven dragon rider?" "Perhaps they will have a hint as to how we might defeat the one who has come from their own ranks."
Velon looks to Poljen with a nod of respect. "Well done. Shall we go and speak to them where the dragon landed?"
