Marla of the Great Church, an ernest young priest of the God Pelor, contacts the party to tell of her studies of various Demon and Death Cults. According to her research, witnesses saw a group of Death Cultist traveling toward Winterhaven about a year ago. She has since learned that the head of this Cult is a twisted and devious man named Kalarel. She fears that Kalarel has set up a secret cult and is performing dark rituals. Tales of recruitment offers have also spread. Marla has asked for the party to travel to Winterhaven to find if there is a Death Cult, and stomp it out if it is there. A promise of 250 silver will be given if the party can return with proof of the destruction of the cult.
