They are in an alley right now, with the main street up ahead. There doesn't
appear to be any rise, safe the rooftops themselves.

> [Oz]
> "So that's the distraction. What's the plan for the rest of us?" The

There are no ground level entrances on the walls of the building (except the
door they just came through). There are some windows on the second story,
about ten feet off the ground (dwarfs are a lot shorter than adult humans).

> [Ted]
> "I can lead the frontal assault and rescue," the lizard man states. "If

> [/Ted]

Skarn nods. "My people will join you on that assault. That should create
some confusion!"

OOC: So what I read here is that Alex is going to look for high ground
(which would appear to be the top of the buildings they are standing next
to), Ted will lead at least some dwarfs on a frontal assault, Vesper will go
with Alex, and Oz is still making up his mind.
