Keeping camp with Sir Agnor and his group, through some eavesdropping, penny learns of an item that is to be delivered to some noble upon arrival. Shoren and Lucian start a “bragging contest” to loosen the tongues of the traveling soldiers to try to find out the location of this “prize”. Shoren again becomes a weasel and hid a box from the marching soldiers. After a little trouble Penny and crew find themselves captured and are interrogated about who they are. Lucian gets thrown into prison and Shoren and Penny come to the rescue with some fast lock-picking and a timely cloud of fog.
