I’m thinking that the Ichante/Becky/LadyT trio are too far out-of-position to assist, given that things are in combat turns. It’s possible to zip back via Movement if things drop out of combat turns, but by then I figure it will be too late either way. That also assumes that Al’s message can even get to them, which seems doubtful given being underground in tunnels.
Don’t worry, you guys are doing great! And if you die you can blame Orokos.
