Oz waves his hand at the group. "You can see this is a well armed group, Sir Havalard. Is there anywhere in particular you would like to have a group of well armed irregulars?"
He turns to look up in the sky, scanning for bombing aircraft or plumes of smoke from the ground, more to gauge the direction of attack than anything else.

Oz shrugged. "I suspect that if we, ah, 'high tailed it' now, we would get bombed into oblivion before we could reach any sort of cover." He gestures the group closer and looks to make sure Sir Havalard wasn't close enough to overhear.
"I have heard there is an escape tunnel somewhere in the keep, but I have not seen it. It supposedly exits a good distance from the keep proper. We could attempt a search, but that is as likely to be a futile effort as not."
