Where She Went

Taking some leisure time from conning the city in to thinking it is being attacked so we can rescue it and get a reward, we get a call of help from a run-down neighbourhood's church. Hoping for some adventure and treasure we visit the church to talk to a priestess called Lavinia to find out what dire emergency awaits our attention.

'My friend, Halyn, has gone missing!', Lavinia sobs, 'She's been gone for two weeks and someone dubious has taken over her duties at the shrine.' Oh. And what reward might you be offering for finding your friend? 'This is but a poor church, so...' I think she said something else, but I have pulled my 25,000 gold cloak over my head at this point.

Only 'But I'm lawful good!' Gruknal shows much interest in taking on this humanitarian task. Even half-orc Krafft understands that 'the most important time for detective work in finding a missing person is performed within 24 hours of the disappearance. She's probably dead. Case closed. Back to the inn?'

However, after a bit more discussion Krafft has a change of heart. 'We must find her!' Maybe his worship for the Raven Queen compels him to feel compassion for a damsel in distress, or perhaps he can sense a deeper conspiracy at work. 'I must have an opportunity to work "Halyn back" in to a sentence.'

    What a splendidly excellent image. Made me chuckle.
