A faint smile spread on the lips of the local town wizard, he had of course heard the tales and rumors of other talented Drow, who had left behind the vile ways of their Underdark kin to forge a new destiny on the surface. A little pride he found himself having, helping start the legends and stories of another such individual. Listening to the conversation behind him, put his mind at ease, for he too harbored concerns about how well these two would work together. His long silence breaks as he nears the door to his home, and begins to explain, "By now, you two might have noticed, there's not many men in town. I assure you this is not my doing, though I wouldn't blame either of you for thinking so. There are, of course, rumors and stories that some of the women in town might tell you, of witches and curses. As the local wizard, I am frequently kept busy trying to give answers, while analyzing one dubious theory after another. People here look to me for answers, and now for security as well, else I might have tried to investigate these disappearances on my own. Considering the phenomenon seems to center around men disappearing, I have been reluctant to leave the village. I can provide you with what little information I have on this matter, if you'd care to join me in my house, otherwise, you could always ask around town, if you prefer, although I am skeptical if the superstitious ramblings of old wives' tales will be of any help."
Along the way to his door, the once active village, now so quiet has filled with a portion of activity. Though small, it is a few of the younger women of the town, some of the older women too. There are those who come out on their doorstep to see the would-be heroes go by, others who only watch through their windows, gazes of all filled with despair, weariness, and yet ready to cling to any thread of hope the moment it is offered to them. As this attention builds, it becomes increasingly evident that there is not a single other man to be seen in the whole town, and not a single child is seen outdoors. Fear rules over the lives of these women.
