Episode 597: A Holo Victory


Recorded messages and footage in a game can be a big clue for investigative scenarios, or a powerful revelation in other settings.

You can of course simply describe them using the usual GM information dump method. Or if you have the recources you can actually make an audio or video recording to play to the players at the right point in the scenario, when their characters uncover the vital clue.

Try to avoid the temptation to have them discover a clue-filled PowerPoint presentation, though.

Obi-Wan: Don't be ridiculous.
