There is a fleaspeck hamlet with fewer than 100 inhabitants, along the old imperial highway to the new Borderlands. In better times a (still small) village that supported a Temple of Law, it has diminished in the decades since the Temple was abandoned.
But now, a fresh crop of visitors to the hamlet. Some are there for religious glory, hoping to re-sanctify the site. Some are there for profit, hoping for reward (and loose valuables). And at least one is there for something far more sinister, indeed.
