Sorry for the hesitation, my friend. Old memories creep up on me; the stink of that city, and the heady days of excitement that followed. We lost one of the company, you see; the elven woman set off on her own path, seeking answers that had little to do with us. Myself and the halfling, we took lodging with the Hidalgo when she was offered work from her seniors, and we pledged our aid, at least until we could work out what dangers had tried to take us during our time in the forest.
We discovered that we were being watched when me and the Little Fish, as he later became famously known-
What? No, I mean the halfling. No, no he wasn’t a fish, it was just a name. Yes, two-legs are strange. Can I continue? Thank you.
Where did I get to? Oh yes. We found a city dweller watching us, and we lured him into our lair. We disarmed, and indeed diseyed him…stupid wolf, you’d find it funny if you were a two legs. We found some information that was more of interest to my companion; it meant little to me at the time.
The Hidalgo had a job for us the next day; we kept silent about the spy we killed in case it disturbed her delicate sensibilities (it also started the rumors about her home; I hear that it it is still said to be haunted by a demon. That is the power of gossip for you).
The job took us back to the settlement we had recently fled from, and its puzzled inhabitants who believed the Hidalgo responsible for several deaths. It was during this mission that we discovered a living creature matching the body we found in our early meeting, a fire breathing winged creature. It was no match for my friends; sadly I played little part in the fight having been wounded in the beasts first attack. But it proved that such creatures existed, and indeed could have been behind the attacks we had heard about.
