    I look at both elvish women, alternatively. If I wanted to suicide I could do so at a more comfy and warm place there wasn't any need on going North.

    -You are seriously proposing running without more directions than "run that way because it is as good as any other way". Let me paraphrase what you want to do, to make sure I got everything right. You want to find a key to be able to read the map that you are holding. You want to run North, at this very moment, expecting full opposition of a demon's army that is able to take a toll on the walls and defenders of what appears to be a fortified city. Your plan is to simply cut through them. And you want to do that now, immediately, instantly, right now. I hope that North is the direction in which the key is, I am not sure as I didn't get that. I hope the demons kill us, for if they do not hunger and cold will be our end.

    Quite exasperated I mumble and curse under my breath, with words not befitting an artist of my rank.

    -I am not ready I won't be ready in a long time for a suicide, but yours is the story of the century, and I am going to tell it, even if I die. But take my words, if I die out there, because you just wanted to run North without even considering taking damned rations or dressing yourselves properly to withstand the cold, I will haunt you for eternity.

    "That does indeed sound like the current plan. However, we don't seem to have any other solutions. Given time, we do, but according to Ori, there is no time to be spared. I was hoping that we might be able to sneak past them, but I don't know if that is even an option for everyone. If there are no other ideas, we must proceed with the only plan we have."

    I smile at the woman and nod, trying to relax myself steadying my breath.

    -The only plan she has. And as far as I know we have no reason to believe anything other than the fact that there are demons outside, we know that for sure. For all I know going running without thinking towards them might just be what the demons want.

    I don't really have a problem supplying myself with food nor warm tea, even in the direst winter... And I am prepared to survive out there. Well. If the worst comes to happen I will just get away from them, I might be able to survive on the waste for days.

    The group follows Ori outside the church, and then outside its walls. Once she is made invisible she becomes difficult to follow but leaves a purposeful trail in the snow.

    At a hustling pace the group marches north, along the base of the eastern peak where buildings and other cover are sparse and the thicker snow proves tougher to march through, but no demons seem to be present. Smoke rises from the town, and the occasional shout and collision can still be heard over the roar of flames.

    The group reaches the north end of town in short order, the wall spanning the pass between the mountains still stands, its signal fires remain lit but no guards patrol atop the wall. The gate lies within sight to the east, but within the archways firelight all present can see two rust colored apes, standing over the bodies of two of the archs former guardians. The demons seem to be putting the guards helmets on and holding the spears, mocking the posture and position of the dead men at their feet.

    "Over the wall or through the gate?" the disembodied voice of Ori Al'Kasaar questions.

    Time to be sneaky. If we attack, they will likely call in reinforcements.

    Mariel waves the others into cover, so that they are not visible to the apes. If they follow, Mariel will talk.

    "There seem to be 3 options. We can sneak past, or we can fight. I can transport 3 people past them, have them hide. I can then sneak back, out of sight, and then teleport another 3. That should be everyone. We could also go over the wall, as Ori suggests. Does anyone else have any ideas?"

    Mariel extends the invisibility on Ori.

    Great, barl-guras.

    -Not to burst your bubble, but those can see through invisibility without trouble. And can teleport, so attacking one might make the other teleport away for reinforcements.

    This Firia is always quick to poke holes in plans, and yet, never offers other ideas. Annoying. Still, I must be civil to her.

    "Teleportation would be the best option, in my option, as long as you're sure you can sneak past those guys." Cassie says, an arrow appearing at her finger tips. The arrow is almost invisible against the snow. In fact, Cassie's hair is too. "if nothing else, we can watch as you sneak and attack if needed."

    Mariel flys up, careful to avoid highlighting herself against any backgrounds, and gets a look at a safe spot to teleport to, out of sight of the creatures.

    Well I like the idea of teleporting ahead, but the chance of being separated without a reliable mean of comunication is probably a bad idea.

    -Casker, stay with Cassie, let me know if something wrong happens.

    I loose my vest, making sure that my arm movement is not restricted and lower the back, it is always hard to move.

    -See you cousin, I will keep an eye on that woman.

    After saying goodbye and nodding a salute to the rest of the party. I release a spell.

    -May my form be true, when the moment is due.

    Finishing the incantation my back starts to change, two 12 feet feathered wings sprout from my back, but other than that the change isn't strong. After all, my form is that of an Avariel, a winged elf, one of our not so distant cousins. I relocate the quiver at my back, and take the crossbow with a firm grip as I fly straight up.

    Axile agrees with the plan. Its the best way to avoid detection, after all a small group is the easiest to hide. Axile stays back with the remaining group, ready to attack if needed.

    He is a little worried about the group being detected, however, there isn't much he can do to help.

    Andrann, only momentarily, broke his silence. "I hope you don't end up messing it up... or tricking us." he told Mariel, putting his thoughts in a very simple manner. Afterwards, he'd allow the mage proceed with her plan.

    Once over the wall the casters can see both the top of the wall, which is fine masonry and unmanned, as well as the country beyond. To the east the sun is already rising and its light, though it does not illuminate the town or the wall, bathes the scene before them (beyond the towering eastern peak) in warm yellow light.
    A somewhat steep descent from the mountain pass covered in thick snow and darkness ends in a valley filled with green pines basking in the morning sunlight. Beyond which another mountain looms, blocking any further panoramic viewing.

    Not a soul is within sight on the other side, demon or mortal.

    Mariel carefully studies a location within 800 feet of the current party location. She then returns to the group.

    "Ok. This will be 2 trips. I will dimension door 3 people across, return using fly, and then teleport the rest across. Any questions?"

    Assuming there are none, Mariel will dimension door the first three takers to the spot mentioned above.

    Firia notes three jovoc playing with a severed head in a street not four hundred feet away.
    Firia sees movement of several molten hulks further off in the village. The light they give off makes them easy to follow, beyond this she detects no movement.

    With two uses of her magic Mariel transports the entire party nearly 800' beyond the wall to the north. Ori's disembodied voice speaks up.

    "Come, we had best begin now, the vault is still more than a days march away."

    The invisible Ori leaves a followable trail as she trudges through the snow.
    Mariel follows, flying for what time she can.
