Episode 1298: Sniped it on jBay

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

In a technological society, virtually anything a character might want to acquire could well be available from online auction or sales sites. Ubiquitous communication allows ubiquitous commerce. Legal items are going to be simple to obtain, and of course there are always darker avenues for shadier equipment.

In the 1950s, getting your hands on plutonium would be virtually impossible. In the 2050s, it might be a lot easier.

This does not mean you have to artificially restrict supply. After all, if the PCs want lots of illegal equipment, there are much more fun things you can do to them than deny the acquisition...
