I have not depicted the beetle glands on the image (it is very hard for me to create more than one light source on the program). But I have extended the illumination to compensate.
Lothar moves up on the map above; and at the very moment that he travels the very last hex, from 0812 to 0811, the four figures surrounding him all snap into life and move one hex forward, then stop in place.
They seem to be collections of wooden roots, bound together like a mass of muscles, moving together as the creatures clump forward.
Pandred should move, then whomever else will come down the stairs, before Lothar and Embla move again (as we're technically half-way through the player's round).
UPDATE: Everyone else has moved forward now. The players may move again.
