Trigger Languages?

I read all the recent posts about trigger languages and some additional
archived messages, and there's still a few things I don't understand.
How are relative and participial clauses handled? Does the relative pronoun
always take the trigger? Does the trigger case affix on the verb indicate
the case of the participle's implied subject?
Also, has anyone done a trigger auxlang or loglang? It's hard to follow
examples because of the additional complications in natlangs and
naturalistic artlangs.
