Twenty Questions from Harlequin and
answers from Cats,
I don’t seem to be coming up with as many “screw the
runners” scenarios as FASA seems to think are common. The
runners also aren’t in the habit of negotiating fees, probably
due to my tendency to come up with reasonable fees. Part of it is
that I don’t think it’s economically sensible for a Johnson
to do that: if you’re a pro, you can’t pull anything like
that, and if you’re corporate, you risk getting made. If you can
avoid getting made (possibly by sending the runners to their doom),
then it may be an acceptable risk...
The runners spend very little effort trying to figure out their
Johnsons; their Johnsons seem to put in a fair amount of effort to
remain anonymous. I don’t know where FASA expects runners to
find out about their Johnsons when they’re dealing with
professional middlemen who are either known for their discretion or
for their anonymity. Sure, if the guy pulls up in a well-registered
vehicle or uses his personal credstick to pay for dinner, that’ll
give clues, but most of them won’t do that.
I expect “screw the runners” scenarios are not all that
common: you don’t want this use of deniable assets to be your
last one. A Johnson can welch by no longer being at the contact
number, if the job doesn’t involve a final meet to pass over a
particular item. Something with this happening might be useful for
the runners to improve their SOP for getting information on their
Johnsons. Alternatively, they can pay in tagged cred that will make
it easier to track the runners for purposes of blackmailing them into
doing jobs later.
