I do have a Map (another crude hyroglyph ) to Post once the characters begin their ascent (Oops! Proper Word is Descent down the steps!) down the steps!
Map shows the layout of the 'terrain' and what is inside, before the characters reach the bottom!
So you all can decide what to do, then post your Role Play in the game thread, before I do a small UpDate and include the Map, so Players can continue their Role Play, while on their way down the steps!

well 2 HP are easily cured. A cure Lt wound spell should do the trick. As for torches, we could search around a bit for wood pieces to wrap cloth around. We should have some oil with the food supplies.
I would guess there would be torches on the wall of the stairsway. You see them in all the movies, lol!!!
I have 5 sticks of candles 8 candles to a stick. Melt 4 candles down, take some of the rags off the skelee's wrap them around two easily carried pieces of wood. Then take the melted wax pour it onto the two rags, let dry, add wick and there you have 2 torches.
Easy solution seeing as we do not need oil as candle wax burns as a fuel source as stated below.
For a candle to burn, a heat source (commonly a naked flame) is used to light the candle's wick, which melts and vaporizes a small amount of fuel, the wax. Once vaporized, the fuel combines with oxygen in the atmosphere to form a flame. This flame provides sufficient heat to keep the candle burning via a self-sustaining chain of events: the heat of the flame melts the top of the mass of solid fuel; the liquefied fuel then moves upward through the wick via capillary action; the liquefied fuel finally vaporizes to burn within the candle's flame.
As for wood if we have none then we use the bones of some skeletons or wrap the rags around the blades of the rusted swords.
Do not remember any reference to clothing on the Skeleton Pirates, because it was the Paladin who shouted out "Skeleton Pirates!" which would have been revealed to him by his deity!
But go ahead and discuss it among yourselves!
Tann, I did not realize that 5 Candles listed in Crow's Equipment were 5 Sticks of 8 Candles!
Something I Must Ponder!
In my games, a Healing Potion (which you will be able to purchase back at the Toothless Dragon Tavern, whenever the Seekers return to Level Up and UpGrade Equipment and Weapons!) consists of 5 Measures of Healing Potion per Each Healing Potion bought by any character!
Well that's what my mother calls them when she buys an 8 pack as 1 stick. If they were lone candles I would have said 5 candles
I have 20 bandages which are normally good sized if you look in the most D&D equipment guides. We again take 4 bandages, wrap two together, soak them in wax, put them on a pair of Skeleton weapons, and once again we have torches.
Plus the bandages will actually soak up the wax much better making our homemade torches burn longer.....
