Frith give the order that anyone needing to use a salve should do so - and that the dwarves should order themselves so that anyone injured should move to the back, and that those newer recruits shouldn't overextend themselves. Warth retains his pick.
Ahmet gets as far as 3108 (remembering its hard to climb those tiny kobald-sized stairs). Lukas drifts behind the dwarves, and behind him Klaas gingerly makes his way up the stairs.
Andrej can see the heads of two kobalds (and their swords) just ahead of him. I also want to make the point that Andrej can feel a definite chill upon climbing even a few of these stairs - not in the air, but upon the stones themselves.
Frith and crew ready to storm the stairs.
