Damn the Man

Postby CthulhuKid » Fri Aug 24, 2018 4:57 pm

I am several months into my game of 5150 Fringe Space.

EVERY RANDOM EVENT has been a Police Investigation. Some loser Transporter started a gun fight with me, and it lasted until the police showed up, and I was involved in yet ANOTHER investigation. I've been found Not Guilty on four different planets, yet I still keep getting brought in.

Clearly, there's a sinister conspiracy involving the law that reaches out to all the worlds about this little 27 year old transport pilot.

I'm having trouble coming up with a good plot line as to why, though. Harassed by cops, yet always found not guilty? Why would that happen? :?:

I might have to hire Billy Pink as a body guard....

Maybe someone is controlling the cops from the shadows.

You share the same name as a gangster. Not well known by the public, but on all the lists used by law enforcement.

You have not paid the local union/gangs/politicians for protection, so you're getting hassled until wise up.

Your first transport job involved some secret item or data that was left on your ship. Everyone is looking for it, but not openly, and you don't know it's there.

You could always use a People Challenge to log a complaint. Would be funny if right after, the violence against your character escalated, though not sure it would be ha ha funny.

OOooooooo!!!!

I think I'm going to go with this one.

Clearly this other guy is making a splash, which is why all of his old friend's have been throwing punches at him, because they've been hearing all the horrible things "he's" been doing.

Fantastic. Thanks for the ideas, everyone!
