"Seems like we are stuck unless we move some of these creatures...there are a LOT of them here."
He look around the area he is in. Is there anything else inside the tree other than creatures? Any furnishings or other items of any kind?

Questions stays next to a couple of the nymphs, so she can see their eyes. "Hello there. I'm called Questions and I don't mean you any harm. I think all of you got paralysed until our group can leave the dungeon safely. Is there anyone among you who would be willing to help us find our way out? If so, move your eyes from looking straight to looking to your right twice to indicate yes."

If she finds someone willing to aid her (by gesturing with their eyes), Questions will walk over to that Nymph.
If there are no positive replies, she will help Agrees to carefully, without harming them, move aside a couple of them, so Agrees may go further.
The winds of change are blowing, and if I may say so myself: it's about bloody time!

(there's nothing other than this stairway)

Agrees looks around but can't see anything else.

Questions asks the critters some questions, but based on their eyes she can tell they either don't understand her or they don't care. She tries to move one of them but can't. It seems the critters are somehow unable to move or be moved.

You can both tell, based on the amount of light, that the stairway opens up into some upper area of the tree.

"Hmmm... I'll be right back, Boner."

Choices flies back to where the others are, disarms one of the frozen creatures, and will attempt to fly it back to his steed.

He's disappointed when he cannot.

"Sorry buddy, thought I had a snack for you, but I couldn't carry it out here."

The critters, in their mad rush to get out of the tree have completely blocked up the tunnel with their small and now immobilized bodies.

Choices takes a detour to "fly" in to where agrees and thinks are.,. Try to move a critter, then "fly" back to his mount. (Almost like mockery)

Choices decides to check out his stinger, and if it is functional, jabbing one of the frozen things.

Choices jabs his stinger deep into one of the critters, it pierces him right through. His eyes tell the take in silent horror. As the strange bee jabs him, his eyes go wide with a mixture of surprise and pain and by the time the stinger rips back out of him the eyes fade to darkness. All of the other eyes stare in wide eyed horror, like an accident that you can't look away from.

The body now freely moves, and choices is able to carry it with him fairly easily.

Questions sighs at Choices simply killing one of the critters off like that, but figures she could just as well make the best out of it. "Alright, anyone willing to co-operate now? Move your eyes, please."

Choices flies the food back to boner who rolls his eyes. "This.... Is smaller than a piece of dust that I've accidently swallowed."

Questions tries to talk to the critters, but they are scared out of their minds. They also probably don't understand her. Their eyes quake with fear, as if someone is trying to run away but their bodies won't budge.

Questions shrugs, then prepares to leave the tower, telling Agrees so, so they don't find themselves all alone unexpectedly.
On her way down the staircase, she keeps an eye out for windows and the like, very much wanting to get an overview of the surrounding area, if possible.

"well, last year I had a whole village of goblins, that's kept me going till now. Perhaps if there was a whole tribe of these, then my hunger would be sated for a little while."

Questions starts to leave the staircase, on her way down, she doesn't see any windows, the outside wall is all natural wood of the tree.

"There's a whole tribe back through there, but they are stuck or something, they don't come loose unless they're dead."

Agrees nods when Questions states she is leaving. "Yeah, they have this corridor blocked...So it's a dead end."
He will follow her out of the tree.
He will look out around the meadow. Is there anything else of significance to look at or is the door to the dragon the only thing that looks like an exit or interesting option?

Stumbles looks at the cup in confusion, recognizing it is empty....

He takes the carpet, and finds it very light. He shakes the sand off, and looks for hints on the carpet for any clues about its imbued magic, or whether it simply is made of very light materials...

Questions examines the tree base for anything interesting.

The dragon looks at choices with a shrug in his eyes that says, if you want to feed me I won't stop you.

Agrees exits the staircase and looks about the woods for a time. He finds that while the place is quite large, it isn't filled with anything other than the big center tree and the doorway into what was a dragons hoard of gold.

Stumbles examines the carpet closely and finds a small label with instructions on it's use and care on the reverse side.
"Wash with like colors, use cold water, hang to dry. Flying thru a rain cloud works as well. Please use with caution, any damage to carpet, person or personal belongings is to be considered the fault of the user and cannot be held against the original manufacturer. Before use, please have completed 17 hours of carpet flying school with a licensed instructor. Use the command word up and hold the front two tassels to fly carpet."

Questions examines the base of the tree, it is very gnarly with roots going everywhere. However there doesn't seem to be any easy way up except for the staircase.

Choices tosses the dead fairy thing up for Boner to snap out of the air.

"Do you know the wizard who sent us here? He the one who sent you those goblins last season?"

Stumbles rolls out the carpet, and sits on it., facing the direction with the tassels.
He grabs and holds the tassels, and says "Up!", hoping he can control the carpet with the tassels, whatever might happen...

Agrees decides this area is just devoid of anything worth bothering about any more.
So he heads over to the door leading to the dragon and walks through.

Once in the next section he will ask Choices, "Is there a way out of this room other than that door back to the meadow? Might your pet know?"
