from the prescriptive note:
Schwarzehund is an adventure for Characters early in their first career, and can easily be scaled up. Although set along the Old Forest Road in Talabecland, this adventure can be staged in any forested region of the Empire.
from the Adventure Background:
Kiril Volskoy is a warden with a problem, a secret, and what he thought was a solution. For years Volskoy has used his secluded prison work camp near Lieske ... as a training ground for fighting dogs.
A few months ago, one of the prisoners brought a lump of glowing green stone up from the depths of the mine. Volskoy recognized it immediately as warpstone and had the unfortunate prisoner place it in a metal box.
