Cancer Posted January 18 Report Share Posted January 18 OK, our base roster is complete for Many Dragons, One Atomic Bomb. Clearly the story here is that a Chinese group ... it's unclear whether it's a fragmentary government group, a criminal gang, or something of a blend of those ... has managed to get word about the Manhattan Project and decided that they want the explosive device. How do they plan to use it if they get it? No hint of that yet. The Chinese hate the Japanese, but they also have reasons to hate the West as well. Who knows; perhaps their sights are set even closer to home. (Maybe they want to nip the budding Communist organization in the bud, and nuking Mao and his followers is a plausible way to go about that.) At this point all that is established is that they're going to Alamogordo and they're gonna get married they're gonna steal the A-bomb. But they are going to need help, because they don't know the American desert southwest. Local area knowledge counts for something, and they need to enlist the aid of someone who (1) knows the area but (2) doesn't give a fig for the US government or US in general, even after the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Who might that be? A desert dweller ... who only cares about short-term rewards ... like, a chicken dinner today ... hmm, chicken? or any poultry? ... Hmm ... AHA! We draft, in Option Position 1, as local guide for the Bad Guys .... Wile E. Coyote! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
