Any exit'll do just fine.
I shut the door behind me, and lock it. "Okay. So we've made it. Now what?" I pace about the small, cramped safehouse. I wish I had time to clean myself. Either way, I pack another pipe-load (2 pipe loads remaining) "Okay. so we need to somehow get out there, and get some information. As far as I can see it, we're all going to get tried and hung if we get recognized, so we'll need to hide. That means cloaks, hoods, and false names when possible. But for now, we need to formulate a plan." I take a long draw from my pipe, and exhale slowly. "Brandon, you have served valiantly already, but they'll be looking for someone wounded as you have been. You need to be our eyes and ears. Keep lookout over the safehouse, and if we're compromised, cover our tracks." I contemplate a moment, focusing on the way the smoke bends and curves through the air, how it is unpredictable yet impossible to stop. "We'll also need every ally we can get. We need to find the seedy inns and taverns, and the hidden thieves guilds. Finally, if we plan on actually stopping this evil magician, we need to find Master Laurence."
"Master Laurence has been gone for some time now, and is late for his arrival already. I fear it has something to do with this evil, but his specialized knowledge in necromancy will even outweigh Resco's arcane might in this particular case. While I respect the wizard, I fear that his age, and preference for breadth of knowledge over depth could lead to his downfall. Sir Eduard, I am placing you in authority of our personal honor guard, to defeat this evil and save our king. Shall we search for Resco or Laurence's aid first?"
Basically, i'm putting out two options:
1) leave town and try to intercept Laurence
2) risk entering the palace to find Resco
