Time to re-hippie! This one agrees to come with us so long as we give him some weed, which we do.
Whoa! We need that dancer. Dancers usually make awesome combat characters as their main stat, Agility is used for fleeing, dodging and shooting!
Awww shit! Our views come off to her as a bit insane. No death squad leader for us!
Now we go to the internet cafe in search of smart people, like Programmers. While there we freak out an Engineer by telling them that Richard Gere put a gerbil up his butt! This isn't going to get him into the squad, man!
Since the programmer in the group we ran into is a conservative, the only way to get him is to seduce him. This, doesn't work and he makes it clear that we will be injured if we try to sleep with him and make him our love slave.
Another Programmer is taken in by out talk of homosexual rights and agrees to come see us later to discuss views.
And for the hell of it we chat up a Retiree in an attempt to get a sleeper agent wherever he lives. We fail miserably as he walks away from the encouter laughing.
Hrm, Teacher might be nice, assuming that they have more skills than just teaching. We'll talk to them and see what they got. And dump them if they are useless.
We also snag ourselves a doctor! This will be good for a combat medic if things go well with his stats. Otherwise he can be the doctor in the safe house and possibly teach first aid to some of our hitmen.
We discuss drug policy with another Programmer and get him to meet up with us too!
Shit....oh well, it was only a hippie..I think. All of our meetings go well except for a Programmer that thinks we're nuts. Time to go back and get more people!
Like this Locksmith! She'll be useful when we start our burglary career.
And another Lawyer is always good!
But alas, our new lawyer friend is a poser and not up to our elite liberal standards!
On the other hand, our programmer friend is just dying to get in and put his hacking skills to use uncovering the Man's secrets!
Back in the safehouse, we're going to put him to work hacking while Mustapha tries to get more people under him.
Like that locksmith...we despirately need one of those to break into apartments and loot them in the near future. So long as she's in the squad, we're pretty much guaranteed to get into even the upscale ones with all the loot!
Now that we've got some people in the squad, we return to the Vegan Co-op to get some hippies for our two new members. They have 0 persuasion and they even fail on hippies most of the time!
Afterward, we go into the housing projects to test our lock picking.
Every lock in the building melts like butter!
By the time we get up to the top floor both the programmer and Mustapha have gained a level in Security, the skill we need for lockpicking. This is a very good skill to train because it'll allow us to do very advanced things later.
While we're going around the city picking locks. We come across another Doctor and his Prostitute companion. Both agree to meet up later to discuss politics!
Mustapha has now maxed out his security and persuasion. The only way to get those caps higher is for him to engage in criminal activity to increase his Juice. Juice is a measure of his Cajonies, his Balls, his Badassity. Mass murder and treason raise it the most, but he's our leader and we don't want the leader executed, so we're going to engage in some theft instead, and that only adds onto the criminal record if you're caught. The downside? It caps out at 200 Juice. So unless Mustapha is forced to kill someone, he's not going over 200, that's for his underlings.
Excellent! One of those random people in the Vegan Co-op has 10 agility! This guy is going to be a powerhouse of a combat character and he will go out and try and recruit people like athletes, army veterans and dancers to join his death squad since this wouldn't be a proper Liber Crime Squad without a militant arm!
The good Doctor was looking like he'd be a good combat medic, but sadly, our dear leader has scared him away by talking bad about the cops.
