From the introduction:
The PCs have been spending the last week in the middle of the north polar wastes on Trybec, doing their survival training refresher course, when their daily fishing is interrupted by the arrival of a RCES shuttle in a cloud of kicked up snow and ice. After a quick confirmation of the PCs identities, the pilot shouts that they are to get their kit on-board within 10 minutes before the ice weakens from the shuttle’s weight.
Once on board the warm shuttle, the copilot hands the PCs sealed orders whilst he checks the cargo stowage. The orders are signed by Sid Papagopolis of the RCES Long Range Planning Group, and transfer the PCs to the group for an unspecified period. The copilot will confirm that the shuttle is bound for Vesna orbital port.
Once the shuttle docks, the PCs are met by a minor starport functionary who has been sent to guide them to a conference room for their briefing. Inside are 5 people (3 men and 2 women) and a hiver. PCs with previous dealings with the Long Range Planning group will recognize them as “Cave Six”, “Koko”, Mr Jerry Bagwanii, “Roaster”, Ms. Sylvia Burnside, and Bob the Hiver.
The female RCES agent nicknamed “Roaster” will start the briefing as soon as the characters enter the room.
