Here’s my second contract for the month.
Name of Contract:
The Fall of Reynard’s Security
we’ve got a new assignment for you. We’ve learned that Alma Reynard plans to blackmail an employee of one Rupert Piece into tossing him from the rooftop to his death. While this is not something that we should stop, we’ve been paid to discourage Reynard from similar future endeavours by letting her know she’s being watched. As such, your targets are three top members of Reynard’s security detail; they’re ought to be disposed by fall accident without disturbing other security men IN ANY WAY.
Why the contract should be featured: Now that we have access to Hawke’s Bay in Contracts mode, I think it was given at least one contract based on the map would appear. That said, arguably, the map is rather small and easy, this is why I chose to make the contract harder than anything I’ve done before. It’s not impossible or EXTREMELY hard, but it takes patience, skill and strategy. Something I think is “passable” in case of such a smaller map where absence of saving shouldn’t create too much of a problems. What makes the contract difficult is that all three targets must be eliminated by a fall accident without ANYONE being subdued (not even the targets) and all while in suit only. Based on previous feedback from several vocal members of the community, I opted to make the suit only complication forced but made the no-subduing complication optional so that there’s room for experimenting and those who find it too hard to complete could still finish it regardless, even though they’d void their Silent Assassin rating.
That said, I think it also fits the cosplay karma theme. While the “cosplay” part isn’t exactly all there (seeing as the only choice of disguise in Hawke’s Bay is either suit or guard outfit [and guard outfit would make the contract much easier]), I think the “karma” part fits really nicely and I tried to explain why in the briefing.
