More clouds move in, fully blocking the moon and bringing even more rain. The temple it self is a two story building with tall windows and a tower rising to about four stories above street level. The white marble that it's constructed out of has veins of lightly glowing blue crystal that give it a very interesting look as the light is diffused through the heavy rain.

There's nothing that the victims have in common and no signs of why or where they were taken. One of the temples relics allowed me to divine the closest thing we have to a clue, which is why I called Lord Vhalantru here.
" She hands over a piece of parchment.
"Sir Tercival is absent for the moment, so I was hoping that Lord Vhalantru might be able to locate some people with to investigate this. Would the three of you be interested in figuring this out? I'll try to answer any questions you may have about the investigation so far.
" she asks wearily.
