Pretzels...:shock:

One idea (likely an abonination which should never have been mentioned) would be to create a string of pun names that form a conversation.

Ex:
Howe-R-YUU
Hime-O-KAE
Isitt-I-MEE
Notte-Y-ETT
Dyohathe-B-OMB
Itsinthe-B-OTT

I've only played the latest edition, so I can't really comment on the previous ones. The only book you really need is the core book, but the supplements are nice to have, and can be quite handy. Your GM was doing his job in only giving you a minimal understanding of the rules, especially since it's ...

I don't have any problem with puns as long as they aren't a distraction.
My puns tend to be a bit random, and they don't necssecarily indicate a character's purpose or disposition. A guy named Lloyd-Y-ALL might be the real thing... or he might be a PURGE member... or an Intsec plant...

Ok, time for some rapid fire responses... Info hazard isn't quite the same thing, but it's definitely a good starting point. I read through the scenario last night, and it's sparked a few ideas. There's nothing quite like a few goons to get a game going. :D Haven't seen that one, though I do have a ...

On 7H-3 Level

I just had an idea for something rotten to pull on my players, though I'm not sure it'll work.
