A dozen of us ought to be enough to pay our respects. Ah, and invite the Mayor." She nods: "Of course, Father. We'll leave at once."
As she heads out with one of the other brothers, the Abbot turns back to the three of you. "Could I trouble the three of you to escort Brother Forge here" he indicates a dwarf "to examine the tunnel and the writing at the other end?"
