The companions smartly decide to shop a little before returning to the mine’s depths. While Ornith is out gathering supplies however a mysterious figure sidles up to her, thinking it to be Gimbrin she goes to clap him happily on the shoulder, only to be stopped as the mysterious figure says:

Many hours later the companions get to a room housing bear-sized predators…dire weasels! Obviously they kill them all.
