"You have returned! Successful hunt? And you freed the slaves. Well done." The doppelganger will open the bag and look in. "Yes, it's him. Although I thought he had better teeth." The bag is closed, and the doppelganger sketches a glowing shape in the air before him. A thunk follows as a bag hits the table. It's quite a light bag, for how much they're paying him. "Open it if you like. It's all there. Too much to fit in any bag but a magic one."

The halfling- who can't talk in this scene- follows behind, and looks curiously at the doppelganger/vedalken. How'd he know Arbrim freed the slaves? Besides her presence, anyway.
