Unfortunately, Cloak's shenanigans with some slavers got herself into trouble, and the party and her beat away the slavers and also by chance, freed the slaves.
In preparation for their journey south, they ventured forward and purchased two caravan wagons, including reinforced wagon parts and a ballista.
The adventure was without problem until the party decided to actively engage two beholders that were in the process of procreation.
A few ballista shots and flurry of blows later…
Cloak acquired a beholder hat and skull.
