Daedares and Kymas make it back to Fallcrest with Kar. Kar is very nervous. He is worried that his employer, Amara Azaer will find out he was captured, lost the mules and failed to deliver the goods to Winterhaven. Kymas, using magic disguises Kar and the three of them make their way across town to the Fallcrest Stables. There Kar explains to the owner, a halfling named Lannar Thistleton what happened and arranges to borrow two mules to bring the wagon back to Fallcrest. Lannar agrees as Kymas and Daedares are going to escourt him.
By chance a teifling named Mortheus was at the stables hoping to find employment, as he had heard that the stables was the best place to pick up local gossip and job opportunities from passing merchants and teamsters. He offers to help and the four companions make their way back to the wagon arriving late in the evening. The group decides to make its way back to Fallcrest in the night.
Arriving at Fallcrest, Kar confronts Amara Azaer and explains what happened. She is not impressed and demands he deliver the goods as agreed and that he is responsible for the loss of the mules. She does however reward the party for the rescue of the goods, wagon and mostly the strong box. The party decides to go to the keep even though it is late at night.
At the keep they meet Lord Markelhay and he agrees to let them stay at the keep overnight and restock their supplies. He offers a 200 gp reward for information on what or who has stirred up the local kobolds. The next morning they head back to the Cloak Woods to start their investigation.
