What shall we do with our prisoners?

Mandross is pretty much along for the ride here, so he'll follow the others' lead. He'll offer to lead one of the horses to keep the more able-armed free to deal with unexpected troubles.

Hire them! urges Paladin. But now I am too tired to care.

Paladin packs up his empty bottle and helps load the rest of the weapons and treasure onto the horses, evenly distributing the goods so that if a horse is lost all of the valuables don't go with it. As far as Paladin is concerned, he wants to load the horses to their maximum riding encumbrance; he's not planning on ever coming back here and anything left behind is lost to scavengers.

Paladin brings food for Barnaby as well.

Paladin plans on tying himself to the saddle if need be so he won't fall off when he nods off for a moment.

Paladin recommends they all go back to the forest guy's place and bring him supplies and whatnot.

Doughbert is in complete agreement about using the critters as pack horses instead of riding them. take everything that we can possibly take that has any value at all.

Nivek, being a dwarf generally dislikes horses, so he concurs.

The lady rides, the rest of us louts can walk. And we've lost a halfling in the baggage. :D

Seeing the indecision or reluctance in the others' eyes, Paladin offers to head back in and "explain the situation" to the bandits. Best we are off before their buddies come back, he points out. Time's a wasting.

Once preparations are made to depart, Tannen unlocks the prisoners' cells. "You are all that remain of your band. We have decided to let you live, but do not follow us or you will join Morward and the others." Here Tannen taps the hilt of Morward's fancy sword that he has buckled on to his own belt. "Do not leave these caves until noon or we'll change our minds. We have a bear that will be watching. A hungry bear."

Tanne then moves outside again. Once all the valuables are stowed on the horses and the others are prepared to travel. "Lets see if the old man is at home, shall we?"
