    You can lower everyone with a Take 10 on Use Rope except Shadow and whoever's climbing down last, who needs a Climb check and a Use Rope check, assuming you aren't trying to make Rana lower someone by herself, in which case a Strength check is in order.

    "Very well, so let's try this again" Audric gestures to Yilminri to tie himself up again "Ah... sorry about the confusion, little friend. There has been another change of plans." When he is safely down, he addresses Rana and Llaars. "A harness for Shadow seems a good idea. I need some help with that, then I think we can bring Rana down,too."

    He considers carefully. After that, they have to choose between him and Llaars to be the last one to climb. Which is the more dangerous feat. "I will lower Llaars down and then attempting to climb myself."

    "Yumani-be soora," Yilminri declares to its toes as it slips back into the knot. When it gets down it seems excited, judging by the way it hops up and down excitedly as it untangles itself from the mess at the end of the rope. "Alifeen, wassa bow-ut?!" it says again, poking Antal with one bony finger.

    Hey there, I have no clue what you're saying. Do you understand us? Antal is intrigued by the little guy. Do you speak this language? he asks once in each of the languages he speaks, Halfling, Elven, Gnomish, and Dwarvish.

    "Yilminri. A bow-at is kiennaf, from up world plants? I want see! I want see!" Yilminri says in very horrible Gnomish, jumping up and down and clapping. It doesn't seem to mind the feel of rough rocks under its bare feet.

    For reference: Yilminri resembles a warped child with sickly gray skin, clothed in thin, bloody, furs. It is tiny, no more than two feet tall, with a narrow chest and slightly too-big head, even for a kid. Its legs are bandy and bowed, and its arms are far too long for its body. Its pug nose still bears the faint marks of having been broken in the past, and there is still a smear of drying blood at one corner of its too-wide mouth. It has stringy black hair, and little bits of faintly glowing spinal cord seem to be tied to the ends of some of its hair, like beads on braids. Batlike ears poke out of its tangled hair, and its large eyes shine like orange gemstones in the darkness, without visible pupils.

    "Llaars, it's really far too dangerous..." he starts, then stops. He considers himself and his heavy armor compared with the relative agility of the other man. It makes sense. Don't insult your allies by treating them like children, Audric. They are capable men and women in their own right.

    He takes a deep breath "Very well, but you aren't climbing down without rope and you certainly aren't jumping.". He purses his lips remembering the big man jumping down the first pit like it was the most normal thing in the world. "There is that nook, there. " he says, pointing. "We hook the rope there, then you lower me down, and climb yourself. Alright?"

    A makeshift harness needs a Use Rope check or a Craft [something that isn't herbal medicine] check.

    Lowering Shadow requires a Strength check, and a Handle Animal check (to calm down the poor wolf) can lower the DC.

    The harness looks snug, and Shadow looks...well, still under the impression that his druid is going crazy, but relaxed enough that lowering him should not be a problem.

    Hope you don't mind, but I don't need all of you to roleplay taking ten on dropping down a hole.
    ---
    The venison jerky seems to appease Shadow- apparently having a crazy druid is OK if she gives you yummy food.

    Shadow is lowered with ease, and Rana is lowered only a few minutes later. When only Audric and Llaars are left up at the top of the hole, one thing becomes clear: Llaars has about a 50-50 chance of dropping Audric. Down a hole that is over 40 feet deep.

    Audric notices Llaars' hesitation, and looks down the hole again, gauging its height. It probably isn't a good idea for Llaars to lower him together with all his gear - the man is strong, but Audric has a full armor on. "Wait, let me make this a bit more easy" he says. He removes his heavy armor, and remains in the plain clothes he usually wears under it. Can't say that isn't a relief, really. Between the slime of the first pit and the everdripping water, he was feeling quite miserable A bath would be nice, right about now he thinks wistfully.

    "Very well, let's lower this mail first, then myself. I can put it on again when I'm at the bottom." he says.

    Audric's gear is easy to lower. Audric himself is somewhat more difficult, but you manage. It's just that the rope still isn't tied to anything, and Llaars is still up there.

    As soon as he touches the ground, Audric disentangles himself from the rope, looking worriedly at the ledge above him to see if Llaars has difficulties.

    He then turns to Antal, assessing him to see if he is injured or needs help. He takes a step towards the halfling, starts to say something, but is interrupted by Yilminri's shrill voice. And I don't even want to know how Antal speaks a language that this being understands he thinks.

    He lets the two talk for now, just arching an eyebrow when he hears the word "sorcerer", but otherwise not intervening in any other way. The look he launches to Antal, however, says very clearly that he has a lot of things to say to him.

    Llaars

    The large man thinks to himself for a moment as he contemplates how to go about tying this rope to something secure. With a casual shrug he searches for the spot previously pointed out by Audric and sets to his task, if only so they'll have a way back up. Once content with his knot, he readies himself and climbs down, trying to find handholds along the wall instead of just using his feet.

    Completely oblivious to Audric, Antal spouts excitedly, in common unfortunately, She was here? As in here here?? Antal is about to say more, when he realizes he's speaking in common, and switches back to gnomish, Did she have a human with her? Thin, but tall, about Audric's height.
