I have a few questions about the adventure. Spoilers ensue.
The brooch. What would be the pitfalls of just buying the brooch outright? What would the museum want for it? While the adventure states a jewelry value of Cr2,500, trade code gamma means nothing to me.
Pysadi. With a TL of 4 in the adventure, 5 on TravellerMap, what's to stop someone from just landing on the continent on the far side of the planet and harvesting howood? With decent sensors, the location of any radars if they existed would be spotted far from detection range. And if someone actually saw them there how long would it take for the information take to make it back to the main continent?
