Hi there. I’m planning a #SixthWorld adventure /never tried this Shodowrun hack before, but I feel it’ll be nice/ and having trouble with one of my players. He is a really great guy, but he totally loves playing mindgames, subverting me and trying to lawyer his way through to get something cool and/or possibly gamebreaking. I don’t enjoy it that much.
So this time he wants to play a billionaire character running the shadows for thrills. The story is his character once had an important technical position in a big corp and when he was quitting he left a piece of code in their systems that transfers minuscule amounts of money – the result of rounding off – to his accounts. Over the years the sum got really big.
I don’t want to ban this straight up, since it is a viable plot hook, but I’m toying with the idea of introducing a move that would limit the party’s access to endless financial resources – big thing shadowrun-wise. I’d like your help with the wording /it will be lawyered big time/ and the effect.
