City Event card #39. Second paragraph states...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
"Greetings," the man begins. "Our sanctuary is having a bit of trouble, and I've been directed to you as persons who could possibly help.


I think there's a missing closing quote here. Not too big of an issue, but a missing quote is a missing quote, is it not?

No, it's on purpose. There is a quest to find the missing quote that this card opens up.

Thank you for your sarcasm.

I was asking since I'm creating something that might benefit the community and was wondering if it's a typo or not so that I could correct it.

If you're copying the text for use in your utility, leave it as-is, typos and all. If you don't, then you differ from the original and people will wonder if that's the only change you've made.

It's grammatically correct to not include the quote at the end of that sentence because the next sentence is a new paragraph that continues that person's dialogue. If it was a new person speaking or that paragraph began with some narrative text, then a closing quote would be required.
