Can we just hand wave all the logistics at this point? I'm fine with 'we are all safely together again at the feast'. We are making this a lot more complicated than it needs to be. I haven't worried about the specifics of it since it isn't a combat. I'm expecting Daishain to fade to Black this chapter at any minute and for us to level up *smile*.
As to needing a leader Cinder. You should have seen the group without one. Half the party were loners who would just wander off doing their own thing. Lia told the other characters that we were basically a group of people travelling in the same direction. We weren't an adventuring party at that time. I agree with you Cinder regarding mundane tasks. It bogs the game down unnecessarily to wait to be told what to do in that manner. I'm all about keeping the game moving.
