I feel there's some part of the tale we're missing here involving Saul, Gabriel and Selmy. Other than that, interesting example of possession.
And fascinating use of Scras' Bone Stitcher in a genre-bending way!
Good luck to your players. Saul sounds like he's now ready to kick some ass. Go to Comment
Hey Ted, just realized you may want to throw in some dates, or at least 1 date :) Just remembered this is from your 1640's campaign. Might help the readers having an idea of time/place/genre. Go to Comment
Love a modern game with a truly "real" feel, as in this case with Los Zetas, etc Could see this used and/or expanded upon in many different ways. First thought was a high-speed convoy attack/chase. My second thought was detailing a bad-ass eccentric head honcho npc for Los Zetas. Go to Comment
The twist is that the drugs will likely be used to frame someone at a later point in time. I was thinking a federal judge, or maybe a senator. Of course, what's left will probably be sold off to help fund Agency 17. After all, that's what corrupt FBI agents have done multiple times. Go to Comment
Firstly very good dossier, now onto the questions I thought of while reading through this...
How paranoid is he exactly? I mean suitably paranoid to check for tails but does he put a piece of hair across his door to see if there have been intruders? (Black bag job) Does he check the undercarriage of his car for bombs/random GPSs? (GPS on the car ala the FBI) Is his car alarmed? (Bug the interior) Does he have a live in landlord or is there an office that closes at 5? (Break in there and borrow the master keys.) And, if all else fails, an RX 7, even in a neutral color is still a flashy car, given a well trained team, trailing him for a day or two wouldn't actually be that hard.
Columbian Solution - wire up a brick of SEMTEX to his car and firebomb his apartment.
Vehicular accident - assuming he follows a predictable route to and from the newspaper office, have a dump truck lose its brakes and T bone him in an intersection.
Suicide by cop - Make sure he sees you tailing him a couple times during the day and the have SWAT raid the wrong apartment. Accidents happen, and a man who's sure the boogie man of the intel world is out to get him will undoubtably be on a hair pin trigger. Go to Comment
The characters are wandering through the bustling crowds of Lasopolis. A street conjuror is performing a simple summoning spell, something for the kiddies. A bit of odious purple powder in the fire, an incantation and out pops a saak-lizard or a muhmentarsh, writhing from the flaming brazier. But the conjuror has only a poor grasp of the arcane magical tongue. A few stuttered syllables could lead to Other Things coming through the brazier and giving the crowd more entertainment than they had paid for...
