Morin presses the point: "the 'main' hallway should be explored to its terminus before the party opens portals from the side chambers."
We have so far scattered the party and opened several flanks. We should regroup, and send a small contingent to explore to the end of the hallway before other avenues are similarly exploited in a systematic fashion — I propose two Boggsmen, any Dwarf, and one of Morin/Mero/Walfried/Lemmi. The rest should stay near the portal into the BOAT ROOM. (I believe we also left two fellows back at the "flower shop" ANTE ROOM.) We have limited light sources, and should expend them establishing the lay of the tunnels on this first expedition.
