Does my invisibility work?

It does, although the guards appear to see you.

Is the floor just hard packed dirt?  Can Scratch dig into it with his fingers? Also, is there a door to the cell block where we are? Can we see it?

Where's Mortimur during all this?  We're supposed to be in his custody.  Is he here "watching" us or is he somewhere else?  If we get a chance to be alone with him for "questioning," I'd like to discuss how he plans on busting us all out of here without having to fight every soldier in the entire complex.  Also, he'll need to get our stuff back if possible.

You can dig into it, however, it doesn't take you long to figure out that the dirt replenishes fairly quickly.  Obviously magically.

The only door out of your cell is at the back of it.  Through the bars, you can see the main courtyard.  You cannot see out of the back door and into the hall that connects all of the cells.

He helps escort you into the cells and watches over you all as spells are cast.  He asks out loud so that you can hear (those of you understanding common), "These are proofed from magical communication?"  There is a nod of yes.

There is one point early the second day, where a loud argument breaks out between Mortimur and the cleric of Hemator Mathis.  Mathis wants an immediate trial and summary execution for the gnolls acts.  "There is no doubt that they killed blessed Rhea!  The punishment must be swift and unwavering!  Hemator condemns those action without question!"

Mortimur responds, and his deep voice dominates the halflings, "No, no, no.  A trial must take place.  The letter of the law cleric.  We are civilized, we have standards.  I will not sanction such an execution until those are met."  His tone is unmistakably tinted with sarcasm and for those smart enough the reversed argument between the two and what would normally be expected is odd.

To Mathis chagrin, the fort cleric of Habastly contributes after a few minutes.  "I have to agree, and am thankful to be able to do so, with Mortimur.  They are safely held and there will be a trial.  If the facts are what they say, it will not take long once a judge has arrived."

Arguments continue and finally, Commander Whitstone, the half cloak wearing halfling arrives.  "Everyone will stand down.  Cleric, return to your study.  Mortimur, thank you for your help, but if your mission here is complete, it is time for you to move on to the next town."

Mortimur leaves later that day.

Dirt floor, metal bars on one wall, wooden ceiling, other three walls made of wood.  Back wall of wood has metal reinforced door.
Can we cast spells? Drax tries to surreptitiously cast a Prestidigitation (only verbal and somatic components) during meal time to see if any alarms go off. If he gets caught he claims he was just trying to impart some flavor to the terrible food.

When you try to cast, you find it hard to concentrate and must make a Concentration check in order to succeed.

Can I reach through the bars, into the courtyard area and dig at the dirt.  Scratch is trying to tell how far the magic dirt extends

Did they take our holy symbols?  Also, Scratch will make constant listen checks to see what he can hear.  I can pinpoint people within 30 ft and has a +21 to his listen checks. 

He is listening to try to determine the following
  • Distance from their cell door to the main entrance to their cell block
  • How many guards are in their cell block area at any given time
  • How long between roving patrols, if any
  • Conversations among the guards about them or Kaklin or the ENF

The bare are narrow enough such that you can't get much more than your hand through.  That is enough to scratch the dirt outside.  You begin to dig (its slow going with just your fingers).  Before you reach a depth at which the dirt would start to replenish, a guard tells you to stop.
