I had been wandering around for some time when I came to an Inn somewhere
between Timaran and Seringale. The denizens at the bar were generally
cheerful and spoke gaily about their travels and friends. Gossip abounded.
But as soon as I brought up the topic of a monk named Shomei, everyone grew
quiet. When I asked the innkeep for a room for the night he told me I
should look elsewhere and perhaps keep my tongue in check. I slept under
the stars that night but my curiosity was not quenched.
