Code 7777SOHAT

By:


The hacker had breached the final firewall and was typing code into the command prompt: code/7777SOHAT. Images flashed up on screen and he gazed in terror at what he saw.

Code 7777SOHAT is a command specific to one IP, 192.219.1.666. When activated by a command prompt this code displays a web page. This web page is a hit list for about anything that you could imagine, from normal hits and robberies to terrorist attacks and calls for mercenaries, if you are of a shady nature you can find a job here.

 

The Jobs

The jobs are organized under tabs for each type of job, such as assassinations and robberies. In each tab the jobs are organized by cost, difficulty, date it expires, and target. The table is very lengthy and could hold the names of some of the characters.

How It Works

When you decide to take a job you simply click on the no button under the Claimed category. If it is already claimed you can not take the job. When you click the button it takes you to an alternate page, displaying mission info and pictures. Then you have to confirm that you want the job by clicking the Confirm button. When you have finished the job and have sent proof to the mission provider your account will be credited with the cost of the mission. When you create an account you will provide name, address, e-mail, and who you are, such as hitman, or terrorist. To place a job you simply place money into your account via a dead drop (cash only) and then specify all the information someone would need to complete your job. To take money out of your account you simply contact the site through your account and they leave the money in a dead drop.

 

Plots

  • One of the characters hack into the site and find themselves on the list. They may have to defend against hopeful mercenaries or find a way to get themselves off.

  • After hacking the site the party faces repercussions from the sites owner. Leading to combat and possibly reasoning with assassins.

  • After completing a robbery the party find themselves under the wrath of the buildings owner.

Loose lips sink ships. In this case, loose security. I like the thought of a hit database but the way it is described it pretty much lets anybody view any job, take a look, and decide if they want to take it. Way too much information available without commitment. Pay drops aren't very trustworthy either unless you have some kind of failsafe to ensure payment and/or action on the job.

Love the concept, difficulty with execution.

I like the idea however. If your able to hack into the site and in the unfortunate event see your name or the name of someone you know, how would it not also be possible to change the category under your name to completed so no one would come find you? Fairly easy if you ask me if they can hack the site.

Until the person who wanted you dead realized that you weren't dead. Or the managers of the site realized that they hadn't dropped the money or finished the paper work.

Nice idea, there is a lot left unsaid, about how there would still be a human element to things, in the way of introductions and granting of access to the site. Presenting just the site may confuse some of the more rigid minded people/players that may focus more on the players relationship with site, when really the site is a mean by which the players contact with or learn about their opponents. Yet it keeps the nature of the opponent mysterious, as is common in the speculative fiction genre. It is another lock that has to cracked before you can get to the real threats.

I think this is a nice solid idea, I would have made it a Location submission, located in Cyberspace, as it is not really a plot as it is a place to find plot. It you gave us a short story about finding the web page, discovering some sort of plot, then trying to shut down the page, it could be a very nice plot. But as is, it's not bad.

Just as a note, i think the firewalls to break into the site would be respectively easy compared to the one to edit the site. Just a thought.

I agree with Pteh. I also think it's very weak as far as ideas go. 1/5.

Small tavern in an out of the way town. Serve a wonderful delicacy that is simply outstanding. It is a creamy white consistancy, sweet, good to eat alone or a sweetener on any dessert. If the explore or ask they are shown where they get it. They breed a group of large catipillars or some other type of insect that basically spit the product onto a setup that they created for that particular reason. Or maybe the delicacy is the byproduct of feeding them something. Instead of city can be a traveller offering the food.
