Zachariah Effingham’s beloved [ Church of Dagon] was destroyed. He has vowed revenge on the populace of New Babbage.


The church of Dagon had been destroyed by fire during a hot and explosive July in New Babbage. The Order was scattered and only Zachariah Effingham, who has just come back from a trip abroad is anywhere to be found. No suspects were brought to task for the crime, there were theories, especially in the light that, at some time in the past, the Order’s assets had been seized by the City to restore damages to the Church of the Builder, which had wrongly had its land seized while Tenk was out of town
