[Well, let's do a quick calculation. It was stated that the main party would set off 20 minutes behind Doughbert and Hiker. The party's base movement rate now that you have Jumbles is 20', which according to the Wilderness Movement Rates equates to 6 miles per day (adjusted for forest), or 3/4 of a mile per hour. However, both groups are moving especially cautiously, so let's say your actually moving at half that rate. If I've got my sums correct, that puts you at something like 200 - 250 yards behind. Given that Hiker has just screamed as a result of the wolf bite he sustained, I'll say 'yes', you hear his shout]
Upon hearing a scream out in the distance in the direction of our general path, Nivek exclaims, "Sounds like Trouble Boys!! Lets Go!" and takes off like the natural sprinter that all dwarves are! [ooc - of course sarcasm]
[Nivek keeps with the party, but otherwise presses the party for quickest movement possible in that direction]
