There were members of the school of hearing who would have possessed spells easily capable of pinpointing the soft steps of any pursuer that had attached himself to the party, but unfortunately Týfurkh could not count himself to those. The school of hearing possessed a spectrum far too broad for a single person to cover it entirely, so everyone just had power over a more or less large fraction of it. So the tail the three had gained remained a mystery.
"I'm Týfurkh, and I think we haven't met before indeed since I can't remember it either. I'm completely new to this place..." While starting to talk, Týfurkh couldn't help but let his eyes drift away from his conversational partner once in a while in order to check their surroundings. He expected everyone to feel that certain bit of tension he felt currently and that would have been all to understandable given their objective and overall situation. He felt obliged not to drop his level of awareness at any point in time.
"Basically this town has not been my goal, but merely an intermediate stop of a long journey I intended to make. I rented a room in a tavern that most likely doesn't exist anymore, went to bed... And when I woke up in the morning I could already smell and see smoke. I would have tried to escape as fast as possible if it had not been for this certain, mysterious guy. He gave me a hint that there were others in a similar situation like me and told me where to go in order to find them. He was convincing enough for me to believe his story and so I ended up meeting all of you. Since then we're sitting in the very same boat I guess."
Retelling the story reminded Týfurkh that it was kinda awkward to say the least. And it reminded him that, at some point and under the precondition that they'd be able to resolve the situation here, they should go after the identity of Mr. Mysterious. Who was he and what were his aims ? It would be very interesting to find out if possible. So far he had seemed to have nothing but gut intentions, but this only helped to open up the field of speculation even further.
"What about you ? Did you meet him as well ?"
