Ok, so we have Cedric ready to fight, Orofer trying to defend himself with a burning log, Amadeus, Quasmus, and Ruby climbing a tree (whether they get up before wolves close or not will depend on initiative).
I'm guessing Fitz will stand and fight. All other non-responding PCs will also climb trees.
Just getting a confirmation and then will roll dice.
The rest of the night passes, though you sense the wolves are out there watching you.
The next morning, as you follow the road, you spot a pack of giant weasels crossing the road. You seem to have surprised them. There are at least two (visible on the road, plus sounds of more in the brush on either side).

Zebulon offers to meet you at the ferry stop five days from tomorrow morning. That will actually give you almost three full days in the CSIO (you will arrive in the morning of the 2nd day, stay in the city for 3rd and 4th days, and have a slightly long 5th day to get back to the ferry stop). Of course you can take less time in the city if you desire.
You saw the weasels on your way from your campsite to the ferry landing...
Since you stopped short, the weasels crossed the road uneventfully.
Zebulon is waiting for you.
At this point, your party will consist of:
Orofer Amadeus Quasmus Fitz Cedric Ruby Zebulon
Brother Cyril, Mortimer, and Muthebar will take the ferry and wait for you in Bier.
