Document (PRT FILES) ⛉ F: ⛉ PRT DEPT 01:NY (NYOFFICE @PRT.GOV.US) T: ⛉ PRT DEPT 64:AGE (ANCHORAGE @PRT.GOV.US) Date: 6:24, Feb 1st, 2012 Director Seneca, This email is a formality. We’ve discussed your role and positions, but the PRT likes its records, and you may find it good to have an email for reference, should you need it. I know you have a lot on your plate. Following the recent destruction, the PRT provided relief funds for Anchorage and the surrounding area. With this bargaining chip, we are taking a greater role in the redeveloped and reinforced city. The PRT will be setting up shop. You’re not particularly wanted by the locals, but you’ve got a bit of clout. Under the PRT’s umbrella, you’ll have charge over a newly formed set of Protectorate and Ward teams. You have two squads of PRT officers, funding for two years guaranteed, as well as a discretionary budget to divide up and use as you see fit. Alaska’s a bitch of a place to set up shop. The remoteness of it is only one factor. People who find themselves in a place like that are often getting away from something. It’s not friendly, and a lot of people are happier keeping to themselves. You can’t let things slip on the politics end of things, and you’ll need to keep this in mind when dealing with any of your new capes. Be they ally or enemy. The area has a notable criminal presence, though they’re a unique breed. When the harbor was devastated, the criminals called a ceasefire, pulled together, and offered their assistance to see it restored, so they could continue with their business unmolested. Tread lightly. You should have access to your accounts by the time this email is sent. You’ll find you have good clearance for all pertinent matters. Conference me if you have any questions, Piers Reinhold, Deputy Chief Director of the PRT. ⛉ "You've got basic access?" The technician asks. You nod. The sole email to your new account is already visible on the screen. "Alright, just got to hook you up to the database and assign permissions. Takes a second, and then you'll be given the password prompt." "That's fine," you say. The technician shifts restlessly for a moment, then says, "Can I ask, Director Seneca? We've been gearing up for a bit now, but we haven't heard much about the man that's leading us. What did you do, before?" (Hint: Your answer determines your capabilities (base numbers, for lack of a better term), the level of respect you get from different departments/areas, can influence the behavior of people working under you, and perhaps most importantly, decides what manner of information you might naturally pick up. A military officer might better identify flagging morale or shoddy discipline and management, while a politician might be more in tune with the moods of people around him.) [X] "Military."

I've got a lot outlined behind the scenes (including all relevant capes), and a few ideas in mind. A quest game focusing on how the PRT operates, priorities, and all of that, from the position of the director.Chances are good I'm going to wind up designating a willing person to tally up votes & make a final call, based on consensus & best arguments, to minimize my own workload. It'd be fun if you roleplayed a bit as staff members communicating to the director, but certainly not obligatory.If it -really- comes down to it, lag is a problem, etc, I may move this off-site and have it mirrored over by someone.This initial section is something of a tutorial & introduction into how things are run. The above decision is the only one you're making in terms of character creation.
