3) Re: tactics and other scary words: this is all assuming that these NPCs are hostile/on Bortek's side. At least they didn't come running towards the sounds of screaming barbarians, snarling dire wolves and melting illusionists.
Well, the thing is, if they indeed do decide at some point that you are a hostile, you are neck deep in trouble. If they come into the room and surround you, there will probably not be a chance to escape.

Thank god, I thought that they would be a lot closer to Isirius. Sorry for giving you trouble with the map, we might even not need it if Isirius decides not to run away.

@Edit3 - There is one like that? O_O

Strategist's Epiphany (History Utility 2): Daily, Free Action
   Trigger: You roll initiative
   Effect: You make a History check and can use the check result as your initiative check result.
Combined with my Guidance of the Past power, it would give me a reasonable chance of being at the top of the initiative list.

And if he gets unlucky, he will be attacked by all 4 enemies and die. Not really an encouraging thought. I really wish I was higher level so that I could teleport him to safety.

EDIT: Well, I guess it could work if I can slow all of the enemies down and they don't all have ranged attacks that can reach Isirius. Are they bunched up enough so that I can slow all of them down with a static mote?

EDIT2: I don't suppose I could use an action point to lay down 2 static motes? (Or alternatively, could Isirius use an action point to take 2 run actions?)

EDIT3: I'm kind of wishing that I had taken that power that let me roll initiative with my history score instead. :/

So basically, 2 run actions to get to safety is not possible for Isirius.

OK then, LuckyDee, let me know telepathically what you want to do.

If you want to risk bluffing your way to safety, let me know and Berak will fade away quietly.

If you want to leg it, let me know and I will either attack them or slow them down since they are in the range of my Shaped Consciousness (I can cast through it).

Question to the DM: The preceding actually depends on whether both Berak and Isirius can take an action before the enemies get a chance to roll for initiative / attack us.

All in all, I think that the corridor that I am in might be a good place to fight them. My area powers can be effective when enemies are bunched together in tight spaces. Perhaps we might try to hold the doorway leading to the room that the others are in.

- Is Bluff also against passive Insight?

- Would teleportation also require a stealth check?

- Would Isirius be able to get through the door leading to the room where the other are and around the corner with 2 run actions?

So I'm assuming that the new arrivals did not notice Berak or his Shaped Consciousness. Since Berak is still in the corridor, I'm also assuming that Berak is not in a position that is visible to them. Is the Shaped Consciousness even something that that are able to detect? Would I have to roll for stealth if I were to try to sneak away to warn the others?

Assuming that Isirius would be able to lure them into the room that the others are in and we were waiting for them in ambush, would that give us a surprise round?

Also, how exactly does stealth against monsters work. Do they roll against your stealth roll or is there some DC that the stealth roll has to beat?

And most importantly, is escaping a combat area allowed if we are in trouble?

EDIT: Also, LuckyDee, how good is Isirius's bluff skill?

- In that case it is paramount that you retreat.

As Berak is walking through the corridor, he notices Isirius sneaking towards the entrance of another corridor. Slightly alarmed, he conjures his consciousness fragment near Isirius and tells him telepathically:

- You shouldn't take risks in your condition. We are ready to perform the ritual, come, the others are waiting.

Berak was thinking about to asking Quill and Isirius to start the ritual when the voice boomed and interrupted his line of thought. He was not too disturbed by the resulting scene, but it reinforced his suspicion that they were a lot less safe than it would seem. He decided to proceed with the ritual with haste.

- Come, wait by the fire, I'll go call Isirius and we will start with the ritual.
he told Quill and went after Isirius to bring him to the others and begin the ritual.

I plan on having Isirius live a little longer...
Ok, I'll cast the ritual. :P
I have to think a bit about the fluff though.

Second Wind technically is not a power so Quill will regain that one after short rest without a problem.
Since we can take as many short rest as we wish as long as the DM does not bombard us with encounters, would that imply that Quill can spend any amount of healing surges between encounters?

Xander, you should probably use your Second Wind right now, since using it in battle would perhaps be less desirable and you only get one use before an extended rest anyway.

Quote from: Malek Deneith
until next extended rest Quill can not heal hit points other than through Second Wind, does not recover spent encounter powers
So basically, if Quill goes to 0 HP or below, she is guaranteed to die? That is seriously risky. Considering that, we should probably just take an extended rest instead of casting the ritual.

did SKRen give a green light for Gosok's participation should it happen?

I'm assuming that he implicitly gave his premission by joining Berak by the fire. It should be easy to fix if it turns out that he didn't. :P

Should I write the ritual casting fluff or will you do it?

Berak patiently waits for the kobold to make up her mind about what to do.

If Quill does not agree, cast the ritual with Isirius and Gosok:
   Gosok: -3 surges
   Berak: -3 surges
   Isirius: +5 surges
