An adventure for 1-6 players on any TL3-14 world with population 6+ that is either balkanized (Government Code 7) or has a unified government but is embroiled in civil war, insurgency, rebellion or invasion by a neighbouring world. Mongoose Traveller 2nd Edition rules have been used here.
One PC has injured their little finger in a freak accident – perhaps cargo loading, R&R, sport, or combat etc. What appears to be a sprain has within 24 hours swollen nastily and become heavily bruised. Fortunately, it is the little finger, on the non-dominant hand.
Medical staff recommend treatment within a week to ten days. How easy this is to arrange depends on the world’s medical care model and the rate of more serious trauma cases arriving as a result of any ongoing conflict.
Law Level determines if and how the PCs are armed outside starport environs.
