Now that they are down to two, I have to juggle them much more evenly. And then decide, despite that, that for one set of characters a whole chase sequence has to be done together to prevent its seeming to take much longer than it does.
Then I remembered I had to slip in another event. That allows some balance.
And once that's done, I have to decide whether they are going to venture onward, even though winter is coming, or wait until spring. I was starting to wonder about supplies.
Then I remembered that two characters could get magical supplies in the course of escape. It would lead to some jokes about the table, but it would finesse the supply issue.
