The heroes, who have made it known that they are looking for gainful employment, have been contacted by Talbrek, a Kubaz information broker operating out of Kwilaan Spaceport. He notifies them of the job, and tells them they are to meet their new employers at Frundle's Cantina. As the adventure begins, the heroes are proceeding down the streets of Keren to Frundle's. The Kubaz told them to simply walk in and get a table, their contact would find them and identify himself with the code phrase "Banthas breathe nothing in a vacuum." The heroes, in turn, are to identify themselves with the phrase "Hawk-bats drink nothing in the desert."
