d100 Science Contact Trouble

So third of several of these I've done for TSR's MSH. Could be used when your CHA or POP roll fails to impress a contact. Could just be a problem your contact has or demands help with. Intended for sciences but wouldn't take much to mod to use for archaeology or history or occult (more magic ancient stuff) or arts which probably gets more existential aesthetic problems than sciences. magic contact table next. I will try third d100 love gone wrong table too as i can reference my mighty comic collection in my new pad.
