The Information Brokers (OOC)

The Information Brokers

In the giant "Metropolis", the last city existing on earth, politics have become more violent than ever. Many different politicians try to gain control of Metropolis and only few resort to words to gain control. Assassinations are everyday, assassins can be found for even the most difficult kills. But a new politician has entered the stage. "Prolocutor" as he calls himself seeks to use no violence at all. That's something unheard of in Metropolis for, well since it's founding. But he knows that he can't win fairly. But he won't betray his little promise.

This is where the players come in. They are information brokers, hired by Prolocutor to blackmail and trick the opposition. There is only one rule: no violence.

Metropolis: Imagine Coruscant from SW. The upper levels are for the rich and the ground is crawling with criminals trying to make it upwards even a few inches.

Metrpolis' Citizens: The criminal underworld is big. In the lower levels pretty much everyone is criminal and gangs rule. But in the upper levels criminals are less obvious although people are just as corrupt. You ask why they aren't as open about their crimes? The AI simply known as the Watcher has a whole army of robots under it's control to keep scum from illegaly making their way upwards and keeping order in the skies. That is why blackmail is so useful, once somebody's crimes are revealed they might as well take a leap from their skyscrapers.

Player Chars: I'm working on a CS but here's roundabout info. There will be all kinds of informats. Computer wizzes, undercover spies etc. But there'll also be men and women of action Sabotage Specialists, bodyguards etc.

The way it will be played: the players will choose one of the many roles that they can fill (working on a list). This RP will be more focused on teamwork and character development than fast-paced action. I like to dose explosions and the like very carefully to make sure that they improve the tension instead of turning this thing into some rambo RP where people just leap from one boom to another one. Depending on the role (I'm working on a system that will keep everybody working together without limiting choice of designation) the experience will defer quite a bit.

I will just say that I'm undercover as a securityguard while starry is the computer wizz and MadMel is a saboteur armed with an explosive. In this case starry is the "narrator" because she has hacked the security cams. She'll inform me and MadMel on dangers. My job is then to distract other, real, security men from whatever MadMel is doing while he sneaks around and avoids everybody. Get what I mean?

CS:
Name:
Gender:
Age:
Appearance:
Area: (Information Collector, Blackmailer, Saboteur)
Specialization: Hacker (IC/S), Undercover Agent (IC/B/S), Explosives Expert (S), Spy (IC), Graffiti Artist (B/S), Messenger (IC/B/S), Bodyguard (Special Class)

The Areas are your general "education" so you can do anything from your chosen area. Specializations are where you excel (a specialized hacker acting as an undercover agent will be detected faster than a specialized undercover agent).

I thought the names covered it pretty well. ^^' Well here goes:

Hacker:
Hacks into security systems and will either be narrating, having hacked into the cameras or is in the thick of it to get rid of enemy robots.

Undercover Agent:
Takes the disguise of somebody, anybody. Be it a security guard or an ambassador. Will mostly be distracting real people from other agents' presence.

Explosives Expert:
Blows up shit after sneaking in or getting smuggled in.

Spy:
Sneaks into buildings that are about to become subject of an operation. They find out what a Undercover Agent should take as a disguise, where the Explosives Expert should plant the bomb etc.

Graffiti Artist:
Smears walls with anti-something partially to distract guards and partially to quickly spread certain things under the general populace.

Messenger:
A innocent name for a blackmailer whose speciality it is to put people under pressure or keep someone distracted with words.

Bodyguard:
Apart from protecting Prolocutor, bodyguards also escort agents in and out of danger zones.

@MadMel: Yes we are doing that deliberately. I like people to discover the background of characters by RPing. On another note, I don't mind Gaia but it's the appearance of the second character that doesn't pass my "test". He isn't the same style as the rest.

Ross Gallo.

minus the gun plus the trenchcoat/glasses, but the if this is the future, then the collapsible riot shield should still be applicable, if not completely necessary. If not then that's fine. stick out tongue

Details for the mission:
The two spies have infiltrated the complex of a businessman to gather information about him and his dealings because Prolocutor wants him at his side in the future and other politicians are approaching him too so the Brokers have to work fast. Crudelis will engage in talk with the businessman while Jun tries to reach a machine that has been put still for maintenance reasons and blow it up if necessary to undermine the messenger's words. Alexandra is watching all the cameras and is also the place for the spies and the saboteur to send updates to so that she can give them on to Crudelis.

lol didn't notice that you were using names in the information on it. I'll post in a few, I'm trying to think exactly how I should start. I thought we might start at the Brokers Base of Operations and get filled in first rather then just being thrown in XD I'll deal with it, I like to think on the run.

edit: Also, where is the machine? Is it in the house, in a garage, outside, or in a warehouse. Trying to determine if I can start by sneaking through crowds or doing free-run type things through metallic beams XD

@starry: Actually I kinda hinted toward Ash being outside while Julius is inside in my post. ^^'

@MadMel: He is a man specializing in cars and all other manners of transport. It's up to you to find some dirt on his stick.

@Phoenix: The machine's location will be discussed in RP. *signals to spies to make up something since everybody's building the mission together*

This is too far in the future for Jun to settle for "Laptops" and "Home Computers"! I'm going holograms! WHEW HOLOGRAMS! Anyways, I do think it is a better idea that we do that. How I see this future is literally wireless internet. Access to internal web which can be accessed with the wave of a hand perhaps. I mean hell, movies that you see from 10 years in the future have that stuff. I think we can act a bit more advanced.

@Phoenix: No-one ever described the laptops. How do you know they're not floating holograms that have merely retained the old name? wink

@everyone: I know that the mission describtion (and the whole game in itself) was pretty vague but please hang in there. I need some time before this runs smoothly.
