Re: Temple: Shrine to Takri
Aldon waits for the Reader to finish and Wyn Roth's attention to return before continuing, "To be honest, I'm not really sure where to start. I'm more than a little out of my depth on this one. I own Witchlight Woodworking, over by O'Malley's. One of my employees spoke to me today about some strange things that have been happening around the workshop. Things go missing, or change places when people aren't looking. That sort of stuff. Harmless so far, but mostly to humor him I had my hired priest take a look around. He told me there is some sort of spirit involved. This all started when a customer brought in a job for her recently departed husband. Could his ghost really be haunting us now?"

Re: Temple: Shrine to Takri
"Sometimes the souls of the deceased do not tread Takri's Golden Road.  However, there is nearly always a reason for it.  Most have chosen an evil path, some wish to extend their time in this world beyond their allotted span, others just wish harm on those who have survived them,  Still others are captured as servants to more powerful undead.   Some, however, just don't realise that they are dead while others have a less malign purpose." The priest says giving a short version of a lecture he had heard years before.

"Yours doesn't sound particularly malignant." he says on a more positive note.  "Tell me about the occurrences.  What things have changed places or gone missing?  Are they all associated with this job that you refer to?  Do they all happen at a particular time of day, or a particular location?" Wyn continues asking for more details of the case.

Re: Temple: Shrine to Takri
Aldon listens intently, eager to learn more. The topic of spirits is something completely new to him. "Huh. Guess there's more to ghosts than I realized. You're right that ours doesn't sound too malignant. I didn't ask my worker for a detailed rundown of things, but he did tell me a little."

"The dead man's wife brought in an old chair for us to restore. That's about the same time things started happening. Most of it happens early in the morning around dawn, and that seems to be centered around keeping the job from being finished. Some specific events witnessed... a table leg unrelated to the chair went missing mid-work and was later found in another room. Also, when working on the same table, the worker's saw got stuck in the wood. He couldn't get it out, but when he returned from lunch, the saw was just sitting on the workbench."

Wyn listens carefully.  "I'll come to your workshop tomorrow, before dawn. Then we will see what we will see." the priest answers.

Aldon smiles at the offer, "Oh, thank you. My priest said he detected an unnatural presence, but that was as specific as he could get. It'll be nice to get things back to normal again."

Re: Temple: Shrine to Takri
The next morning at Takri's Shrine Wyn is listening to the names of those who have traveled the golden road being read.  His attention is caught by a small trinket left on a new marker.  Wyn recognizes the name as that of the old man from Aldon's shop.  Picking up the trinket to examine it Wyn finds it to be a tiny wooden charm carved into the shape of a chair.  It gives off a faint amount of magic.  As he examines the trinket a faint whisper is heard throughout the shrine.

"Thank you."

Aeos finds himself entering the temple of Takri, and looks for a priest, his hand reaches to his pocket to inch the drawing of the symbol drawn upon it.

Aeos hands over an illustration and unfolds it.

Drawn: A large turtle shell with liquid pouring out from the holes where the limbs and head should be.

Re: Temple: Shrine to Takri
The reader studies the drawing carefully, and frowns as something from his training niggles at his memory.  "It is some sort of nature cult.  But a perverted one ..."  he considers for a moment or two longer "... but that is all I can tell you about it, I am afraid."

With a soft smile he hands the illustration back to Aeos.

"Is there someone.. an expert, a specialist that might know more?  Or someone you could refer me to?"

The proprietor folds and places the drawing back into a pocket.

The reader frowns for a moment as he considers.  "Hmmm.   Brother Wyn is out of town at the moment, So Brother Jahi, down at Pen and Ink, is probably your best bet."
