Default Adventure Seed; The false god

So, I've exchanged PMs with Cryten, and he suggested that this might be a good place to put adventure seeds. My blog readership has dropped, and I'm trying to move onto other projects, so I might be trimming my blog in the coming months. As such, I'd like to share some Travellerness that I posted there. So, here we go

Year 1098, 127th Day

Glimmer Drift Sector
Adar subsector
Venad system

Eskufet lies outside the Imperium and its protection in the Tlianke subsector. It's native inhabitants, labeled Tilans (a colloquel title recognized by the major powers) are a tech level 1 (bronze age) race of mammals that have been contacted, promised a better life, employed by off world companies, and, as such, also abused and taken advantage of. The Tilans are savvy, know their world has essentially been invaded by peoples of other worlds whose technical abilities are above their own. But their improvement in food generation (farming and harvesting local animals) has allowed more free time and for a kind of societal self introspection. To this end there has also been a kind of reformation movement, but the Tilans are subject to the whims and wills of the corporations who have set up shop. There is off world oversight, but the Tilans think it lip service, or ineffective at best.

A group of Tilans approaches the players at the local Starport Bar overlooking the tarmac, and request that they accompany them back to Eskufet to witness their working classes treatment. They warn that getting in undetected will not be easy, and may require smuggling themselves in system and onto the world.

The Tilans state that they are being mistreated; over worked, their young being forced to labor, an economic system that has pushed out their ancient ways to favor the corporate off worlders, and to this end created a new impoverished class struggle to make ends meet for basic needs. The Tilans are now also coping with new diseases, and medical care is exorbitantly high for the wages they are paid.

The Tilans wish witnesses to their plight so they can bring attention to it to the "outside world".

Are the adventurers interested?
