Bern waited, there was not much else to do, he had his bow ready and his arrow at hand. He just had to hope the hobbit was fine and that the ranger was wise enough to alert them and not do some heroic on his own... or maybe he was just too wary, maybe the scout took longer than expected and they had a long walk.

Berangar looked at Bern's growing uneasiness, and did his best to quell his own.  Sitting still while trying to remain at the ready could wear at one's nerves.  After determining no one was trying to sneak up from behind, he tended to the ponies, making sure they had some fodder to either graze or browse while they all waited.  He then did a short circuit of their little impromptu 'camp' just to stretch his legs and returned to his post.

Bés idly strokes her beard with one hand. "Master Andwise could have eaten two breakfasts and elevenses in the time he's been gone," she rumbles to no one in particular. "Should sufficient time pass that he could add luncheon to that tally, it might be prudent to follow and 'reconnoiter in force'."

The group is milling about, trying to not feel overly impatient, Berangar occupying his mind by tending to the ponies, Bés starting to talk about all moving East... when, after about a half an hour since Andwise left, you hear a quaint, mellifluous birdcall coming from a ways East.
Dinaethion looks up:  "That is Kemendil.  His call to show where he is, but that there is hostility afoot."

"Trouble..." Bern nods "Perhaps a misdirection, Bes and I will lead the ponies, meanwhile the rest of you will follow us in hiding. When the hostiles would show, they would focus on us allowing you the element of surprise."

Berangar looks quickly over at the elf, "This call, hostility afoot -- Andwise is in danger now, or only potentially?" 

He thinks but a moment, and responds to Bern, "Our most stealthy folk have already scouted ahead.  I fear the rest of us make not be the best at remaining hidden."


OOC:  Would it be possible for Berangar to use his Hunting skill in terms of stalking prey in the wild?  He's not very stealthy (Stealth 1), but he's got to catch animals somehow?

Bern and Bés start moving East, leading the ponies...  with Dinaethion a few paces ahead, hiding in the bushes, looking out to spot Kemendil.

Ulfaar and Shalronel followed behind, at a bit of a distance.
Berangar slipped off to the side, bowing his tall frame to seem smaller and not be seen, using the trick he had devised to better hunt.

OOC:  fine for using your trait, Berangar & Dinaethion

You soon come upon Kemendil, who steps out of some bushes.

OOC:  Kemendil can tell you what happened with him...  so you can then choose what to do next

When his friends arrived, Kemendil narrated what he had seen-

Out of the corner of his eye, as he released an arrow to distract some of the people who seemed like Beornings, yet were rather hostile, Kemendil sees that Andwise had managed to distract the tall men long enough to dash off and dive into a pile of beams that were obviously supports to carry the wooden cages on, to be used on carts or such. The Hobbit disappeared from sight there, and he hoped that he was still there.

The noise from the arrow helped Andwise, since the entire camp makes for their weapons, and start moving in what is a well coordinated battle formation:  some moving to guard the cages, others to cover all sides, and a small group, covered by others, heading for where he made the noise.

A last group seems to search for the Hobbit...  but they are not that many, and seem distracted.  And they do not seem to be close to locating him, rather trying to see how he ran up the hill.

OOC:  just adding something that I think Kemendil would have shared, since his Fellows do not know about this either - thanks for the nice narration!

Before talking of using his bow, Kemendil explained that-

About ten minutes to the East, there is a dell surrounded by some low hills, and I saw Andwise talking with some of the tall men, and then going down with them into the dell.  Climbing discreetly up the side, I noticed that inside there were several dozen of these men, with two leaders who seemed to be quarreling - that Andwise was being taken to - and several wooden cages with people locked up inside.
