The group of adventurers met within a young dwarven carpenter’s hut. Each of them was individually responding to a request on a notice board to investigate the disappearance of an alarming number of people from the market district, specifically the dwarven woman’s friend. The party headed to the market district and discovered a trail that led to a hut just outside the marketplace, inside the slums, overlooking the marketplace. They were attacked by Kenku, bird-like humanoids, a bit smaller than regular humans. After a fight with them, blasting their leader from the upstairs window, they determined that the kenku had been abducting people who display a decent amount of wealth, stealing their money, and hiding the bodies. A strange tablet with undecipherable text was found in a corner on the upper floor of the Kenku hideout.
