Brother Walfried stands amongst the wreckage of men, boat, and beast, and breathes a prayer of thanks, then a prayer of mourning for the fallen comrades.
"Here," he says to Chiron, digging a torch out of his pack & handing it to the Medium.
Then, taking note that several comrades are missing, and not amongst the wreckage:
"Let's see if our missing friends are still alive, perhaps in the room with the dragon's hoard. Let's gather what we can and get it out of here. We've won great spoils, I've no doubt, but the cost has been high." Turning to the surviving Boggsmen, he says: "Your comrades gave their lives bravely, and turned the tide of the battle. I am sure your commander will be generous to their families, though no gold can make up for such a loss."
With that Walfried leads the way out of the boat room, and down the corridor to the left, to re-enter the lair.
