Grimsby Falls
This is the village of Grimsby Falls, home to the Belmont Family.

The village itself appears more or less deserted, but it's expected given its current situation.

Points of Interest

Belmont Manor is home to the wealthiest family in all of the village. However, nobody has seen Lord Belmont or his servants who run errands throughout the town for him in some time. Dark clouds full of rain loom over the village. Those who come near the mansion can feel a dreaded presence behind its doors.... many villagers have chosen to remain indoors fearing the worst now that the most influential family has disappeared seemingly into thin air. In the courtyard surrounding the estate, only the whispers of the trees can be heard. There seems to be no sign of life from outside the gates. Nobody can get a good look due to the gates surrounding the manor towering over it and being covered in ivy. The manor is surrounded by a thick canopy of ancient trees as well. In a last-ditch effort, someone seemed to place a haphazardly arranged line of chains to seal the gates shut.

The town square has a Church closeby, where the current civilians huddle in prayer. But even the Church has been empty, with only a surviving servant of the Manor stays, chanting to protect himself.

Down in the town square's bulletin board, "HELP" on multiple fliers have been scribbled on and tacked onto the board, with news clippings of the missing Lord Belmont. So far, it appears their calls for help have gone unanswered.

Gold the Dark Hammer walked into the church, in his Paladin Form, and took a seat.

"By the Light, give me strength." He muttered.
I don't believe in bleak horizons, I won't concede to all of that. What we need is something different. What we all need is a... Steam Powered Griaffe!

Vala and the group of people she was accompanying entered. There didn't seem to be a lot of people around. Vala looked up at the sky. "Dark clouds... is it going to storm soon?" She found herself gazing at the Church. "Found the place we're supposed to meet the servant at."
Excalik fell to the floor once more. "Jesus.. I'm never going to get use to the portal.." Excalik struggled to stand. "Yeah, this is the place it seems."

A good goblin? There might be, if we just looked. But I think... The only good goblins are the ones who never come out of their stinking holes!

Arlen stepped out of the portal, a little less affected by the portal than Excalik, but still a little queasy.

"I hope that won't be our primary means of travel all the time.." Arlen remarked before looking at the church.

"You'll have to get used to it if you're travelling with me." Vala said bluntly, heading towards the Church. "It's so desolate around here..." She said to herself before stopping in front of the Bulletin Board. "Whoa..." The mage tugged off one of the flyers and waved it in front of the others. "No wonder nobody's out here. They're this freaked out by whatever's going on with the rich people here."
Excalik wipe the sweat that formed around his head due to the portal trip. He looked up to see the flyers that Vala waved around. "Whoa.. it seems that it's not the first time they requested help." Excalik looked around. "You're right.. not a single soul at sight. Whatever happen must've be pretty extreme to chase everyone away."

Z Clone followed the group to the new location with nothing but a troublesome smile on her face. She casually floated her way to the Bulletin Board and swiped off a flyer and held it in the air. She pushed the flyer to Excalik's face.

"Danger is present ahead, non~?" She giggled. "It's gonna be scary~!"

What is it, big boy? You wouldn't hit a girl, would you?!
Allein said "Lets get the mission over with. I'd rather not be here longer than I have to."

"Considering how big the group is, we hopefully should take care of this before I use up all of my energy." Vala replied, opening up the doors to the Church.

Empty in here too.

The church was largely lit by many candles and a large chandelier at the center of the Church. Someone in servant's clothing was knelt at one of the pews praying intensively. 

"Hey. Which one of you is named Ivan?" Vala said, glancing around.

The one praying turned his head around with widened eyes, getting up and pacing quickly to the group. "You've answered my letter! I'm eternally grateful." Ivan bowed his head courteously. 

"So, what exactly is happening around here?" Vala asked. "You've said you would expain just is going on."

"Ah, yes... I'm only hiding here because the... things... at the manor... they overran the mansion, and snatched up the other servants into the darkness. Lord Belmont had gone out saying he was invited to some kind of business. He hadn't come back for weeks. And then suddenly, all sorts of creatures broke into the manor while we took care of it as a search party was sent for him. Nobody has come back... I'm fearing for my life. Nobody else has helped us... I hope you all can."
