First Call at Zila D J Barr The Traveller Adventure.png

Every populated world and system is full of stories from those of the local NIL "natives" to the first colonists to the gentlesophonts still around today. And some of the locals may be belters or other kinds of spacers found in a planetoid belt outpost or highport.

Ply them with a few drinks, a meal, some gifts, or even an outright bribe and who knows what information or chitchat they might share...
