An old moisture farmer overheard a conversation about the Disciples of Ragnos in a local bar on Tatooine and had his R5 unit record the conversation. He began to fear for his life, however, and decided to sell the droid to some local Jawas. Jaden Korr and Kyle Katarn were sent on a mission to Tatooine to purchase that droid from the Jawas. Katarn considered the mission to be a blue milk run which would give Korr a chance to practice negotiation.
However, when they arrived, the Jawas were nowhere to be found. Katarn sent Korr to look for their sandcrawler and went himself to talk to the local moisture farmers to learn more about the Sith cult.
Korr eventually ran into some Jawas who were under attack by Tusken Raiders. Fighting his way through caves, canyons and hordes of Sand People, Korr eventually stumbled upon the sandcrawler, only to find that it had been overrun by the Tuskens and most of the Jawas ruthlessly killed. Korr searched through the sandcrawler, killed all the Sand People and eventually found the R5 unit.
Upon exiting the sandcrawler, more Sand People attacked Korr, but were defeated. The R5 unit's recorded conversation, along with the droid itself, was retrieved unharmed.
