So what happens if all of the goblin archers are killed before Splig has a chance to interrogate and find Frederick? The quest guide does not state Splig has the ability to pick up the prisoners and take them back to the torture chamber. So is this an automatic loss for the OL if all of the goblins are killed?
Just finished playing it (me as the OL) with that exact scenario (was able to interrogate one prisoner before the 3 heroes made it to the hall leading to the prison) and we decided it was OK for Splig to trek down to the torture room, pick up a prisoner as an action, take the prisoner back to the interrogation room, put down the prisoner as an action, and then attempt to interrogate. It was essentially a moot point as the heroes more or less had the quest wrapped up. I'll admit I didn't pick Shadow Dragons and opened the first door to unleash my slow-as-sin zombies on them, so poor playing on my part, but still a valid question.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
