The team caught the fleeing goblin, Tori, and spoke to her for some time.  She offered them her pet rock, Dori.  They eventually learned Dori became her best friend after being used to kill another goblin who was bullying her.  She tried to flee, but Taras took his revenge for his slain wife by shooting her with an arrow. 

The group tracked the missing horses to a little used track in the forest which led to a sign reading “Mss L. Fyodorll – Equine Entrepreneur – Dealer in Fine Horses.”  They discovered an elven woman and four armed men along with a corral holding dozens of horses.  After some discussion they learned this woman bought the horses from the goblins!  She offered to sell the horses back at cost for 50 gp each.  The team did not have that money but discussed a partnership where she, the team, and the homesteaders would all get a portion of the sales of the horses to the elves.  Taras was against the idea, but the group eventually talked him into grudging acceptance. 

After making camp nearby, JoJo the thief revealed his plan:  steal all the horses.  He recruited the party into the heist.  Sensei stood watch with two of Fyodorll’s guards and ended up in a distance spitting competition with them.  He used that to distract them and bashed both of them unconscious using Dori.  JoJo then crept into the wagon where another guard was sleeping and knocked him out with Dori.  With three of the guards tied up, JoJo tried to pick the lock on a wagon but accidentally woke the man up.  As he emerged from the wagon, JoJo knocked him out with Dori as well.  He then used some rope and made it difficult to open Fyodorll’s wagon. 

The team then hitched up two of the wagons to horses and drove the entire herd away into the night with the furious elven trader screaming at them from inside her wagon.  After returning with the horses to Sukiskyn, they found several men from the Ilyakana lumber camp had arrived after being attacked by goblins.  They had sad news.  Captain Kalanos and Pyotr’s brother Stephan had been taken by the goblins at the camp!
