The players were followed by the Raven Knights, who thought they were hiding things from them.
During the night they noticed some Dark Ones watching them and Vance went out to investigate. After a few a Bleeder approached their shelter and attempted to gain entrance calling out ‘I need help.’. The party stayed quiet and the Bleeder left with Vance following. After about three and a half hours of following Vance trailed the Bleeder to the nest where he saw it communicating with a female shaman.
After clarifying thingsthings with the Raven Knights the following day and leaving a ‘tribute’ of rations and ammo they patched up the relationship and moved to secure the truck they had discovered previously.
