"Ahhh... Lady Saviqe is it not? I wasn't aware of your return, welcome home", Vhalantru says looking rather stressed, "But yes, why are a respectable lord and a priest of St. Cuthbert meeting in secret in the dead of night?"
"There's been a spate of kidnappings in Cauldron. More than forty people have gone missing, their houses ransacked and stripped of anything of value, but no signs of anyone breaking in."
"The watch has found nothing and refused to even consider them connected until the latest victims. Somehow, five of the children at the Lamplight orphanage have gone missing in the same way as the rest, doors open, unlocked, and not a trace of the children. Only five were taken, the rest of the children don't remember anything from that night."
"That sparked a small riot and the Watch finally had to admit that something was going on and they didn't have a single clue."
Vhalantru pauses to catch his breath, obviously he's rather worked up about all this, "I was told by Father Ruphus that his church has some information about the children's location, but we were attacked before we could get back to the temple of St. Cuthbert."
"Yes, we do have information Lord Vhalantru." the priest interjects, "though I do caution telling them any more", he turns towards the three of you and quickly comments, "I am grateful for you saving us, being clubbed to death really isn't a great way to sainthood" before turning back to Vhalantru, "it's simply to dangerous, we don't know who they are loyal to."
"You're point is well taken Father, though I think they should be safe as the Saviqe family is friendly to our cause."
Turning to the three of you Vhalantru pauses, like he's sizing you up or contemplating the consequences. He nods to himself and says to Ruphus, "They may be exactly who we need, no connections to the watch or Mayor and they're not suspects since they weren't in town up until now.
Vhalantru turns to the three of you, "I am interested in retaining your services as "problem solvers". If you're interested, accompany us to the Temple of St. Cuthbert, I can assuredly make it well worth your while."
