Kaiju-Com 2, June Purchases
« on: September 11, 2019, 09:52:50 pm »

It is January 1 1999.

Over the past six months, Earth has been attacked by several giant creatures.  Some resembling enormous terrestial animals.. giant animals of various kinds, and some resembling no creature on earth, like an enormous flowing mass of worm-like tentacles.

All have caused significant death and destruction.  The only common link is that they have all emerged from the seas of the world, and have been suprisingly strong, and difficult to destroy.  Conventional armed forces have proven of only limited effectiveness.. capable of killing these giant creatures but not doing so before they do great damage.  The only "victory" was in Gujarat, where a gigantic bobbit worm, covered in frost and surrounded by a raging blizzard, was killed by nuclear fire.

In response to this new threat, many nations of the earth have banded together and decided to fund a number of organizations for the "Investigation and development of military capabilities for combating these 'Kaiju' which threaten the Earth."

You are in charge of one of these organizations.


Perks are, (choose one of the following)

Business: More money.  Sometimes it's all you need.
Military: Better feedback on combat equipment, cheaper soldiers and purchased equipment.
Black Market: More stuff available on the black market, occasional "Special Deals".
Political: Improved relations with the council of funding nations.
Intelligence: Better information gathering capabilities.

Also.. maybe you are not in charge of one of these organizations.  With the advent of the seemingly impossible Kaiju, a number of individuals have emerged into public view.  They are generally collectively termed "Mad Scientists."

Now while mad scientists are, for various personal reasions, more or less incapable of leading whole organizations, they can still accomplish many things.  As such, they may be valuable, if independant, allies to the various anti-Kaiju organizations.  Perhaps you are one of those individuals instead.


Do note that while both categories are quite different, there is some overlap.  Conventional organizations will do lots of research, and mad scientists will be capable of making things.  Both are going to be necessary to accomplish victory.

(Thanks to Nirur Torir.)

Name: Lord Silver
Mad Science Machine: Evil Physics Lab
Origin of funding: Swiss Bank Account filled from being a 'former' evil genius.
Flavor text: Once, Lord Silver mustered the forces known as E.vil V.iolent E.xtreme L.ords, or EVIL for short, and sought to threaten the very world itself with destruction if it did not give in. His legion of minions was vast, his death rays powerful, his mutated monsters spread chaos, and his primary evil lieutenant known only as Dr Doom was a major threat to everything peaceful in and of himself. It was not to be. The forces of good and light rallied and snatched victory from the jaws of defeat at the last minute (with only a succession of major earthquakes left behind from the attempt to crack the world in half.) Thus, defeated and even temporarily captured by the forces of good before being broke out, Lord Silver faded into history, his final victory denied.

Of course, he was plotting a come back, but this time the forces of good and wholesomeness were on the watch for him, making it very difficult for even an evil mastermind to properly set up a new evil organization. That's when the first giant monster arrived, heralding a new threat that seems destined to destroy the world. In other words, competition. And competition was made for being ruthlessly crushed.

Thus, temporarily putting his schemes to create a new evil organization aside as to escape being recognized by the forces of justice that still seek him, Lord Silver created the technology firm known as the Wicked Science Firm and set out to, ugh, aid the forces of good and the status quo in dealing with this threat so the world would still be there for him to take over afterwards.

Name of your organization: USSCCI, colloquially and internally known as "Mordecai's Miles"
Perk: Military
Starting Base Location: Tampa, Florida.
Flavor Text: When the Kaiju threat first became apparent, but before its sheer scale was properly understood, governments across the world created many projects to study the aggressors.  The blandly-named USSCCI was the US's attempt.  Helmed by a severely unpopular USAF general and based near a major USAF base despite officially being a unified project, USSCCI was plagued by factional warfare from the moment of its conception.  This resulted in mission goals and even parameters changing almost constantly, which was paralyzing for the organization; unsurprisingly, it failed to produce any tangible results before most of its funding and support evaporated, which has left the organization as a whole desperate.  Securing funding from the newly-formed global council of nations is its last hope of survival, though its leaders remain optimistic that their increased autonomy will allow them to reverse the organization's long trend of failure.

Should we be concerned that the guy with the same name and job as you is funded by dark money?

Ha ha. I'm neither a lobbyist nor can Democrats really get dark money. Much too much touting of their donors on the blue team for that. At least, in my state that seems the case.

But in the context of this game, yes, be very afraid.  ;D

Mad Scientist
Name: Heinz Doofenshmirtz
Mad Science Machine: The Un-giant-Inator!
Origin of funding: Sale of odd household products that nobody needs with silly infomercials in which humanity seems far clumsier than ordinary.
Flavor text: You may be wondering, 'why are you moving away from your typical evil-doing towards kaiju fighting instead?' well, it all started last wednesday- and can you believe that, you'd think it would be spelled 'Wensday' with how it's pronounced- I'm getting off track, anyway. So I had decided to re-open my old Bratwurst business, you should have seen it, I had a big fancy cart like all those modern day hotdog vendors and everything, when all of a sudden, a giant foot comes out of nowhere a-and just crushes the whole thing, all of it! I lost so much bratwurst that day, my whole stock it-it's unbelievable really. So I figured, if the monsters where smaller, they wouldn't be able to step on my stuff. Anyway here we are now.

(no, no I could not resist)
