"Well you two. I guess we make ourselves comfortable for the night. Van we are counting on you to keep us alive", says Tabbi.

"There is a lot of room here for me in this corridor, but you might all feel more comfortable if we camp out in the room we came from."

Van sets up to spend the night in the tunnel.

[There is probably enough room for Tabby as well if she wants to stay but the others will likely have to camp out in the room above]

[I'll have to do xp later when i have time, but for now]

Night traverses the light-less tomb, until all present recognize its passage and the sense of a new day begins

casters, pick your spells

In the morning after preparations, Van will center himself by the wall.

He will start the ritual required for the Commune spell.

He will then start his questions slowly, but full of anticipation.
============================================
Do I ask them all? Do I ask one, get an answer and ask the next?

I believe I get 16.

[Yeah, 16 questions. You can ask them one at a time and wait for answers. to simplify things if you have a few questions that are unrelated to each other you might ask each of those in the first volley.]

After spending some time in prayerful reflection, Van begins the ritual of Communion with his god as the remaining companions stand by quietly observing.

Van casts Commune

He will not rattle them off as my list may make them seem to be. He will slowly and respectfully ask these questions.

1. Are Bryce and Zafron alive?
2. Will staying where I am give me the best chance of seeing my Brothers again?
3. Is the orange portal above the most efficient way to find the Demi-Lich we seek?

Lighting the incense, Van focuses on the the inward flame... It danced like a soul's fire. Like the hearth of a home, the warmth of the world deep below, he calls upon the Silverbeard for aid... for knowledge.

As he asks the first question a warmth come over him, as if the fires of life themselves were stoked. A clear affirmative that his brothers yet remained among the living. His second, more conservative question causes the inner fires to dim and waver... This was not the best chance. His third question regarding the orange portal causes the fire to grow dimmer still, though not extinguish. Apparently the orange portal was yet another diversion...
[3/16 questions used]

(OOC: You should have used this trick long time ago :) 16 questions a day and you can map all the traps, creatures and the best way to defeat the demon within one week)

4. Will backtracking lead me to my Brothers?
5. Does the other end of this crawl space hold our way towards the Lich we seek?
6. Is the best path through the hall of paintings?(The murals with the orbs)

7. Does going through this infernal wall give my best chance of finding my Brothers?
===================
The known options are:
Gold orb that leads to the room with the broken 4-arm gargoyle statue
2 doors on the West wall
Black orb that leads to the Chapel (where they just were)
Archway to the South

Are the doors where the spear launched from?

7: the warmth is all encompassing, almost overwhelming
===
the paths you mention are correct, yes. there are no openings where the spears were launched from aside from the small gaps the spears themselves came out of (barely large enough for that)
