Also, an example of the usefulness of carrying handcuffs.
This reminds me of a recent issue I had in the 2nd edition trophy section -- how do you set $ values on hi-tech or magic trophy items so that Heroes don't become instantly rich? One answer is, if it's the pre-WWII years, not enough people are buying who have enough money to make you rich.
I'm wondering, though, if a marksman's medal should be a trophy item. The wielder would get a +1 to hit with missiles?
The radio room is halfway between levels. It contains a safe - don't you want to know what's in it, Ed? Above that is, one could presume, the ground floor where the party is taking place.
