The party heads north, slowed greatly by the dwarves' wagons. They go through the town of Mesa, and Darthend notices an ATV much like thier own with the black claw of Morkeleb on it. He realizes they're being followed – and he destroys a video probe.
Darthend waits just outside of town, and then heads north well after the rest of the group – and eventually he catches three gargoyles following them. He talks with them, and they tell him that for some reason, Morkeleb wants him – not dead, just him to talk. He sends them back, and the group heads over a ridge to another valley. Along the way they realize that there are fast moving flying vehicles on the road behind them – can't say for sure what or who, but now they're along a more deserted area – alone.
