I'm thinking I'm going to start my campaign 6 months prior to the 2076 Olympics in Seattle. Trying to come up with some runs that would use the Olympics as a motivating factor. I've come up with the following so far:



* Forger needs to move fake ticket codes to matrix gangs

* Forger needs to move counterfeit Knight Errant uniforms to Vory v Zakone [For posing as police officers for muggings/robberies on tourists during the games]

* Mafia-run Gates Casino in Bellvue wants a neighboring building in Redmond (Touristville) torn down, as it's operated by a Seoulpa Ring's illegal casino. Remove the gangers holed up in the casino to allow for the demolition crew to do their job.

* Vory v Zakone are spread thin moving in extra illegal immigrants from Eastern Europe to run cons during the games. They need help watching over incoming shipments from Knight Errant and Halloweener raids.

* Mr. Johnson for Olympic Committee wants the Troll Killers quieted in the downtown area around the Seattle Center. It seems they have recently been given some funding and proper leadership and are getting more daring/open.

* Olympic athlete doesn't want rival(s) to compete.

I was just curious if anyone else could help me come up with ideas? Keep in mind, this is only 6 months prior to the Olympics, so they are set to happen, the applicant phase has passed.

Maybe once the games actually begin, someone could hire the team to drug the team(s) of certain nation(s) so that they would fail the drug tests and thus be disqualified?

1. Full out kidnapping and holding of athlete or athletes so they can't compete. Maybe stress how the runners are destroying the dreams of this young athlete. Maybe it's the grandson of Michael Phelps? Holding an especially large team of athletes could be quite difficult, especially if there are possible rescuers.

2. Rival security company hires the runners to embarrass the security company that won the contract for the Olympics.

3. The runners are hired as security and are offered a large bonus if one of the runners will act as a double for an athlete. (Using disguise skills of the group or someone they provide, and perhaps the runner somewhat resembles the athlete) Perhaps even have the runner compete, with appropriate athletics rolls. Perhaps someone drugged the real athlete, as in the previously suggested run.

4. The runners are hired to test the security system by breaking in.

5. The runners learn of a possible terrorist attack and must find the terrorist/prevent the attack.

6. One of the anti MetaHuman terrorist groups is planning to damage/maim several metahuman athltes right before the events. The runners will have to move fast to stop them all in a short time period.

7. A cartel hires the runners to intimidate an athlete who has proven difficult to convince that it would be in their "best interest" to throw a match or shave points.

1. "Hold the Ukranian weightlifting team hostage for 3 hours until the escort unit arrives." :D

2. This is happening in Seattle. Lone Star may or may not have a grudge against Knight Errant.

4. Why not a ShadowSea competition?

5. I'm kind of thinking that the number of problems they create for Knight Errant may lead to this.

6. Seattle is already kind of recycling Redmond and other heavily metahuman populations. Maybe if they fail the Troll Killers assignment?

Coming soon to JackPoint,

The 2076 Hackalympics!

Grab your 'link, dust off the Black Hammer and get ready for a madcap race to the top of the virtual podium.  Which hacker has the brains, the balls and the badass code to raise as much hell as they can?  Will you reprogram the soda dispensers to spew Hurlg to the children, rig a crop duster drone to spray the crowd with happy drugs, plant a fragton of naughty images on the head of the IOC's 'link before tipping off the feds, or swap the Azzie national anthem for Yucatan protest tunes?  Who knows?

Bragging rights goes to the best caper, only serious code monkeys need to bother.

I love it! :D

It's a shame it may not happen for awhile, though, being 6 months out from the actual games and all. I guess maybe a 1 month heads-up to allow for proper recon?

Hahah, I may try this, or something like it, myself, and I'm not even running an Olympics campaign.  It would be good revenge on the GM that made us steal a huge awakened starfish, shove it in a van, and attempt to keep it watered.

1.) Smuggle in or sell performance enhancing drugs to the athletes.

2.) Hacker must clean the doping record of athletes.

3.) Protect metahuman athlete from Humanis thugs ( it's been stated before but the capper: Mayor Brackhaven has to shake the hands of the troll who wins the gold.)

4.) Mage is hired to mask the aura of an adept and has to prevent them from being outed.

5.) Some athletes have signed a contract with Horizon to allow their experiences to be recorded on simsense.  MCT wants to steal the recordings and hires the runner to get them out of the Olympic Village. 

6.)  A group of sprits with the possession power are drawn to the games and want to possess the athletes.

7.) A talismonger is convinced that the Olympic flame is a alchemical radical and the key ingredient for his next focus.

Something I thought about today watching the news... one of the megacorps has won the bid to run the olympic flame into Seattle before passing it off to the final runner (someone the Seattle government selected to make the city look good).  A competitive Corp wants things to go badly for the Corporate Runner, without causing any deaths, and is willing to pay handsomely.

Seeing how much security they've got on the Olympics -even today, and I expect it to be a lot worse when they don't have to worry about "civil rights" and such- and considering that any failure will be televised around the globe, it'd have to pay a heck of a lot to be worth it.

Sadly, no. A pair of golden eyes on a screen, held by a squatter in a Stuffer Shack parking lot.
