They are ambushed several times while traveling to the encampment. During one of the ambushes River and Khaj'Zir take one of the knocked out bandits prisoner. They tie him to a tree and wait for him to awaken. This bandit who identifies himself as Phil is intimidated by the party into telling them what they want to know.
