From Melvien's Journal: The Unanswered

 Something mysterious has vexed the mind of Melvien de Malecroix, the leader of the Order of Woltaris and the Sacred City of Adoulin's Minister of Finance. A proponent of the colonization movement, Melvien's actions as of late have been increasingly erratic, such as spending hours upon hours within the Celennia Memorial Library as well as trips to the jungles alone. Now, the young minister hasn't returned from one of his excursions. Does his journal hold the key to his whereabouts?
