I'm not a big fan of withholding information when an inconvenient knowledge check is rolled, even if they roll low. But I don't want a player following a red herring down a rabbit hole, nor do I want to accidentally give them the answer too early. This is where we get the art of the non-clue clue – an answer that feels rewarding and satisfying and will make sense when the full answer is revealed, but doesn't make players spiral out into trying to guess the full answer for ten minutes.

As it turns out, constructing even minor mysteries is tough.
