Default 'JUST WHERE DID YOU GET THAT SKILL, STRANGER?'

Some skills are limited by what career can get them.

Depending on the law level of your players' current world, this could mean trouble. Know how to get a balky cardkey reader to work, or give you something for free? You may be considered a thief or a rogue psion. Sitting in the bar, talking about firearms on a world where the company forbids them? Might be seeing detention or worse.

Works the other way too. How did this milquetoast bureaucrat patron casually hand you a live detonator? Bureaucrats do not usually gain Demolitions skill. Specialized documents or cardkeys immediately available? Perhaps the patron is a skilled forger and prepared them himself months in advance.

Some of you old timers might remember the 'IS THERE A DOCTOR ON THE LIFEBOAT' JTAS article. This is a bit of data manipulation and analysis in that vein.

I admit this is the kind of thing that makes Classic TRAVELLER such a joy, even after 40 plus years. It is a lot harder to do data manipulation like this in more modern, and therefore complex, systems.

Some skills have an * in front. This indicates a special condition needs to be met, by career type, rank or education.
