Very simple rules. You may source any of the official/published TSR products for the game: modules, rule books, maps, counters, Referee Screen, miniatures...nothing fanzine (Dragon, etc), house rule, or non-licensed products.

Ask a trivia question based on those resources, if someone answers correctly the person asking the question confirms the answer via where it was sourced and the person answering gets to field the next question. For example, you could ask "What is PGC?" and source any of the various references in the rules and/or modules for the answer.

We'll start this off with the following question:


"Who is Grobber Jaloub?"
No, I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide. Nor do I have any qualms in stating why. Tongue out

Correct, he was one of the pre-gens in the module.

They are Heliope priests from Starmist.  As such all are immune to electrical attacks and take half damage from laser weapons.  In addition, Gokul & Edaku have inertia screens while Kuku and Killock have albedo screens.


New Question (assuming that one passes):
Why Was Baralou Ap-Reaverchan nicknamed "Frosty"?

Correct.

Baralou Ap-Reaverchan had a very low personality score. You might say she's a bit Cylon.

"She" is, of course, the homicidal anthropomorphic android from Bugs in the System with a rather underdeveloped personality.

I was holding out as well hoping others would participate...


...the Cockroaches are small robots that maneuver along tracks running across the bulkheads & ceiling, and the only activated ones can be found in the storage bay just inside the airlock of the Sathar Scout Ship in SF/KH-3 "Face of the Enemy".

Next Q:

What is (or was) the pride of Pan Galactic Corporation?

I believe that was: "The starship Omicron, the pride of the Pan Galactic Corporation, disappeared years ago on its first voyage. Recently the ship was found drifting in space, the passengers and crew killed by a strange and virulent disease." From Assault on Starship Omicron by Mark Acres with Tom Moldvay.

I think it was the mini-module that was included in the referee's screen.

Assuming that my answer was correct, the young of these "butterflies" would find the PCs to be a tasty meal. What are the adults called?

Correct, the SS Omicron from the Referee Screen mini-module was the pride of Pan Galactic.

Lake Vast is a major starport of Triad (Cassidine) and is headquarters to Interplanetary Industries per the Zeb's Guide --- mentioned in both the system briefs and megacorp sections.

OK, this one took me some time to find. It is from the Knight Hawks rules.

EXAMPLE: Ish Birdt is buying weapons and defenses for the SAS King's Road, a hull size 6 freighter. He wants to install a laser battery (MHS 3) and a rocket battery (MHS 5).

It was a tad obscure. Cool
