from the Prolog:
The characters are visiting Novaya Pechenga (UWP C885649-7 Hot) a world orbiting 82 Eridani in the Beta Hydri subsector of the Outer Veil setting; but this adventure could be run on just about any mid-tech world. Their ship is having maintenance done. A failure of the life support system requires the complete shutdown of that system for several days. During the interim period, the characters are housed in a local hotel.
