From the Prologue to the Module:
A License to Adventure
"No more adventures for the day!" croaks the Guild Master as he closes the book on the day’s leads. "All you stragglers will have to come back tomorrow and hope for the best. Or you could go down and apply for the sentry. The Captain of the Guard’s always looking for more swords to stand guard. It ain’t adventurous, but you get a hot meal at the end of each shift, as long as you aren’t caught sleeping."
As the Guild Master blows out his candle, the door of the Ogre’s Maw opens and a young Goblin scribe rushes in waving a scroll. "Sorry, Guild Master! I found this charge on the floor of you$r chamber. It’s only the kobold rumor." Scowling, the Guild Master quickly reads the scroll and looks up at the adventurers.
"Seems someone spotted a couple of kobolds in Dragonbreath Vale yesterday eve. Not very exciting, but it will get you out of the Keep for the day. Kobolds would just about fit your experience level, too. Wouldn’t want to put you up against an ogre your first time out".
The adventure starts with the Kreator reading the module’s prolog
