Alright, let's clarify:
-1-person rescue team? Kiang Li was sent to do a detective's job, apparently, and he wasn't the first person to be sent there.
-No guarantees, Karthus. If you want, you can be a boss at some point in Episode 1, you suit the role. That is, if you would like to spawn and fight using NPCs. I'll make up your rules and cue soon.
-Yes, Rudmed, you (and Zero) can fight since they were well-rested in the closet. Rowni is the only person that can't fight yet. Reasons are:
-Li was not captured
-C had been regenerated by Zilean's time device
-Claude and Zero took a rest in the closet.
-Tem'rak and Mort were already able to fight
