Oh, sorry I wasn't sure what you needed. Well, Tarin saved Cloff, then offered to repay her. Tarin wanted his Beaststone, which Cloff couldn't give up, so he offered himself. She accepted, and ordered him to help her get things from the town. Cloff technically obeyed, but got all of Tarin's gold smelly and wet with sweat, because he put it in his shoes. Tarin got disgusted and sent him away.
On the other end, Shinji received word that a large number of villagers were captured. He found that they were being held in the village square, and informed Nokam of that before heading in himself. Nokam found Mason, who was attempting to fight all of the bandits on his own. Nokam and Mason went to the town square, which is where they are currently.
Hopefully this manages to get you everything you need!
Basically story-wise: A group of Barbarians has attacked a village. Nokam and the Shepherds come to the village. They lead what survivors they could out, and are currently facing down a hulk a man who is the leader of the brutes. Also Cloff and Tarin are currently conversing.
Insert yourself wherever you'd like. Hope this cleared some things up!
Uh yeah, sorry to slow things down a bit, but in Re-Awakening, Lutaro holds the dragonstone in a small bag wrapped around his upper leg. There's no way Nokam could have seen it there. It was kinda... in a bag.
