Re: How should I hand out plot-vital information?

Just realized I forgot to mention that if The Pcs can capture The Renegade Princess and hand her over to her own Race alive then they may just be able to negotiate themselves possessions of great power in the new Sector Wide Government when/if the invaders conquer The Trojan Reach. We're talking no ...

Re: How should I hand out plot-vital information?

I'm planning A Traveller Campaign which isn't Pirates of Drinax but is planned to start and end on and see a lot of the none combat action on Drinax and where the Npc that is most vital to the plot has information that is vital to the plot, yet if I play her based on her history then she would be un...
