Last time when I went to the Rotten Vale, a stray Baselgeuse came to my location and nearly found me right after I have slain the main target. Fortunately, I managed to get undetected, but this led me to the following question.

What happens when I get fainted while I'm on the return timer? Is it considered as being fainted during the quest and drops my reward or screws the quest? If not, to where do I get carried? Do I land on the nearest camp and the return timer still ticks? Or, do I skip the timer and go to the chosen destination?

You can't faint when you complete your primary objective. Once you get the cutscene, you are invulnerable; fire won't damage you, attacks won't hurt, nothing will.
