I mentioned in previous scenarios that despite all the hard work that goes into some of these missions, sometimes the ones I donít prepare for are the most entertaining. In this case, Combat Missions is chock full of action without a whole lot of setup, which suits my players just fine. Unfortunately, some scenarios utilize their talents more than others.
In this case, the scenario required two agents to go undercover. More than that would be suspicious, which meant that the two non-combat types (Guppy and Archive) didnít have a whole lot to do. Jim-Bean and Hammer, on the other hand, were having a blast. In the end it all came together with very little conflict, but it didnít matter. The agents got what they wanted and achieved the mission.
I felt it was all a bit of letdown because I wasnít able to push for a climactic ending (the kind I routinely preach about thatís lacking from other scenarios). Thatís not to demean the players; they did everything right. It just wasnít quite as exciting as a scenario as Iíd hoped.
On the other hand, the exact same plot as the scenario played out in a recent episode of Burn Notice. A con-man fakes an FBI raid to swindle his marks out of their money. Instead, Michaelís team ambushes the faux FBI agents and makes it appear that theyíve been murdered, turning the tables on the con man. So maybe this scenario wasnít so bad after all.
