Fighting the invisible presence which had previously attacked Forte, Sophie attempted to dispel magic only to find no effect.
Specifically targeting Forte, the fight dragged on with the creature never appearing. Rikki summoned some owls because why the hell not.
Marquis, once again kills the foe and receiveS absolutely no credit when eventually the creature drops into another plane and the party searches for the terrified Skeezix.
Rejoining the party, Skeezix shows Rikki and Sophie a secret Kobold hideaway while Marquis keeps guard down below.

The device will stay alight as long as its companion device is within a distance of 500 feet.
Derp, Forte, and Andrei bed down in a ruined structure nearby and the party sleeps..
