GM: Is there room to walk around? The general impression was that such a plan probably wouldn't work, but I suppose we could see such a thing.
To the group: Assuming the GM says that walking around will not be adequate, then we need to do something. It seems that teleporting is the simplest option. Or at least it seems so to the non-magical warrior. But that requires the mages to post first. Lothor will post something about standing there looking tall, dark and handsome - and, or course, very dangerous and on guard, once the mages have made their choices.
Ok things have been happening here in real life kinda fast since Friday.
My Mom now has a 9am Hernia operation tomorrow morning and needs to be there by 7am for Op prep. We were not 100% sure of this till today as we got a confirmation call just about an hr ago from her Doctor. As such I will have no time to post tonight as its a VERY early night for me.
I'll try during the week but if not then hopefully next Sunday as I'll be taking care of Mom once she gets home on Tues-Wed.
As for Nomad's question as far as Peri was able to see the ground around the castle is nothing but foliage a combo of thick trees and swamp like conditions. For you to teleport there would be risky but not impossible, but Sirene would need to see the area for herself. Never forget the four clawed birds are living in the top of the tower and will easily see Sirene coming.
However beyond the ashes the tress are thinner thanks in part to the created destruction and you could easily teleport to the ashes edge if you wanted too.

I was actually asking if we could walk around the ash - the current problem.
I was also assuming we would teleport across the ash and walk the rest of the way. What about teleporting part way to the tower so that Sirene doesn't have to go all the way to get the lay of the land, but we don't have to walk it all. Could perhaps have done that and avoided the slaughter . . .
How's this; Sirene flies over the destruction without getting too high so as not to attract the tower birds or too low to not kick up dust. She fixes on a safe spot at the edge just past the destruction as our teleport to place. She flies back, we join hands and teleport over the mess to the far edge. We then hike to the tower using what is left of the foliage as cover.
Tann you take care of mom and this gives us a little more time.
If Nimu posts first then we can all just tell of waiting for Sirene and then joining hands and appearing on the other side prepared hiking into the jungle.
I think the distances are more than you are imagining. I don't think there is much chance of the birds seeing us at the beach. The danger is if we (Or even just Sirene) try to fly to the tower. If we teleport across the ash, we still have quite a long jungle hike ahead of us. At least that is my interpretation of things. Tann's comments on the birds were based on flying to the tower to find a landing spot.
