In my last post I explored the Animal Encounters part of Traveller adventure design. Yes, animals can be a danger and a challenge, but will they be memorable? A memorable encounter has to have something surprising - an "I didn't know it could do that" or "how do we deal with this" aspect. If all carnivore chasers are leopards with different color fur, encountering them will be worse than not memorable, those encounters will be dull. So what to do?
