The night goes by without creatures of the forest fancying you for dinner. As the darkness falls, the forest changes its repertoire of sounds again. This night, however, there is a new sound added. It seems the kobolds work around the clock, because every now and then you hear the sounds of big objects falling, or clanging together.
The next morning you resume your search through the forest for marked trees. The whole procedure somewhat reduces your speed, but you are making sure progress (typically, Nala up front, Vrishchika and Siel in Between and Tralkor in the back).
After about 90 minutes you spot two kobolds hiding in the bushes, about 40ft ahead from you, perhaps 15 or 20 feet away from Nala.
