The adventurers go back to the town after eradicating the kobolds. They learn that their friend Douven Staul, an archeologist, has a dig site nearby. They go to the site, only to realize that they had walked right into an ambush. An apparition, a gnome skulk, and some human rabble (rabble, rabble) attacked! Then died. The PCs find Douven under a blanket, and loot some nice stuff. They then go back to the town and hit up the weapons and armour shops for an upgrade. At level four, they are now feeling superpowered compared to their level one selves. They also obtained a fell amulet of unknown origin.
