Triffles (3) - A search

With someone or something vanished in the last Triffle, there might well be a search.

 volunteers                  a dark secret
  draughted in               finally revealed 



This could quite easily form the basis for a wargaming scenario, with the volunteers represented by lesser trained troops and the dark secret by the opponent being able to disrupt command at a given moment, as if the drama were then being discovered at the nerve centre. In roleplaying the player characters could be involved in either the search itself or the teasing out of the mystery, or both. All of this could be drawn on in writing.

For some modern or fantasy atmosphere, Fire Broadside! has this image.

You're good at this - maybe those guys were there at the back of my mind? It's hard to escape the cliches, and in a sense that's the point of the series, to remind anyone needing an idea of what can be done, but hopefully in a fresh arrangement.
