Temple: Temple of the Mercurial Dragon
Making your way through the market district you head east toward the Temple of the Mercurial Dragon.  The temple is a marvel of architecture and engineering.  The main structure of the building is as realistic a sculpture of a dragon as you have ever seen.  The material is bright shining metal, very much like solid mercury, but with streaks and swirls of gold and bronze here and there.  Various pillars and extra rooms have been built up around the main structure over the years.  The entrance to the temple is through the wide open mouth of the dragon laying it's head on the ground.

Stray entered the temple, immediately looking for either the adventurers he sought... if he was particularly lucky, that is... or, barring that, a priest or servant he could speak with about them.

No adventurers stick out in here.  Several priests are present however.  Stray recognizes their orderly and militaristic dress.  One of the priests approaches Stray as he enters the temple.  "Lad, have you come to explore what the Mercurial Dragon has to offer you?  If you have no home left to go back to we do offer squire training for select individuals."  The priest stands tall with his shoulders pushed back, arms joined behind his back.

Stray resisted the urge to laugh at the priest's offer of squire training, instead simply shaking his head.  "I am here on errand," he said simply, "seeking some adventurers who would have come here recently."  He provided the priest with the names and descriptions Velkarah had given him.

"By any chance, are these adventurers still here, or do you know where they might have gone?"

"The people you seek have been to the temple.  This morning they came looking for Lt. Rast.  I if recall correctly they were in the process of locating some adventuring companions who had been with the lieutenant.  They asked his whereabouts as he had not been to the temple.  I instructed them to check the barracks or the prison.  They left at this suggestion.  Logically, I assume they would check the barracks first, then the prison."

As Stray is speaking to the priest he catches something out of the corner of his vision.  Another boy he knows from the shop comes in but waits by the entrance.  The other boys called him Lucky on account of his brush with death a few weeks ago.  He had unwittingly offended councilman Mud, who was about to take out his frustration on the boy when councilwoman Kezra intervened.

He bowed to the priest and thanked him for the information, leaving with Lucky latching onto his wake and following him out.

"I've a job for you," he said quietly, going over the list of adventurers that the tiefling provided him.  "Head to the barracks, ask to speak with Lieutenant Gray or Guardsman Jonne, let them know I sent you and see what information you can find."

He paused a moment, thinking.  "On your way, stop by the shop and have one of the boys play our eyes at O'Malley's.  Probably Silent, don't need anyone worrying about things not their business.  I'll head to the prison, see what I can find there.  If you find them, send them to Velkarah and find me.  If you hear anything, or Silent finds them, find me at the prison."
