@Alice: You sense distant mental activity from the burned-out village, but nothing closer to you than the 'professor' currently. The professor, however, has significant mental shielding.
@Adam: No weaponry, but you do notice that the fatigues have the name 'Smith' on the breast, and seem to be World War 2 era. The professor looks much as you saw him before, just a touch older.
@Gillian: Looks to be so, yeah.
@Jace: The bullets are not lodged in him.
Mel quickly 'treads' up and begins looking over the professor. "He is hurt, and may be in shock, but I believe I can stabilize him."
The 'professor' coughs and nods, "Thank you, whomever you are. I ...do not go under the guise of a professor, although I once knew a young woman who called me that from time to time. No, I am known by many as The Visitor."
Knowledge of history roll TN 10: The Visitor was a magic hero active in the 1930's-1940's. He vanished from the public eye some time in 1945.
"I apologize for bringing such young people here. War isn't for you. I simply reached for reinforcements. I can send you back once I'm back on my feet...shouldn't be long."
