Run Chain

Details

Mitsuhama Computer Technologies sits newly crowned on top of the rankings for the Corporate Council, but no one likes an upstart. Especially not the company that used to hold the #1 ranking. This chain is all about the rest of the corporate world taking their shot at the new king of the hill, MCT, and MCT trying to hit back.

General Run Ideas

  • Sabotage
    • both physical and Matrix
  • Extracting VIPs or stealing research/prototype equipment
    • Prototype drones can just walk off on their own
  • Blackmailing MCT executives or revealing damaging information about the company
    • Like all those technomancers they keep cutting up
    • Or all their Yakuza ties
  • Technomancer rescue ops
    • Any corporation can be convinced to take the plight of the technomancer seriously if it means they can screw over their competition
    • An unknown number of technomancers have infiltrated MCT to fight it from the inside. That has to be valuable to someone
  • False flag attacks
    • Damage MCT but make it look like a rival corp did it, so the retribution falls on the wrong party
    • Damage a rival corp but make it look like MCT did it to provoke them into piling on
  • Astral Shenanigans
    • MCT is devoting huge resource into plundering astral planes for valuable materials or new information on magic
    • They also have a huge business in selling reagents and manufacturing Foci, a non-aligned background count could ruin the manufacture of those
