    One minor quibble….In Tower of the Black Pearl, the effect Judge Jen mentions is not automatic. The player is given a choice between two outcomes. When I run it, I don’t even mention the potential cattle prod – players seem happy to grab hold of the stick!

    Also, the item being touched is not enough to trigger the effect; it must be damaged or despoiled in some way.

    (When I was doing the conversion, I was thrilled to discover an early – I believe, the first – mention of a certain DCC icon, and had to include something along these lines. Appendix N literature demanded that it be so!)
