Time check: Currently it is a bit past midnight. Undercurrent doesn't plan on setting sail until the morning (8 AM-ish). As a ranger Zokon knows that if the party travels at a speed of 20' (a brisk pace for any slower members with a speed of 20'), that even through a rugged, trackless forest (which this is) it shouldn't take any longer than a 30 minutes to make it to a spot a half-mile inland.
