In the days following the attack on the dog-men camp, the party spends its time recuperating and collecting all of the loot from the area. Much armor and weapons can be saved from the barbarians, and it is all transported back to Charm (the newly-named tower compound) for later use. While collecting these items, the now one-armed captain of the barbarians returns to the ruins and begs mercy from the party. After much deliberation, they agree to protect the captain, provided he shows them the location of his boat and pledges fealty. He does so, and the group finds a lot of food and water on the boat, along with another green ring and a chest.
