60s Espionage - Bunny
« on: July 31, 2012, 03:14:30 AM »
so....  This kept running around my brain...

a little bit of Hunt for the Red October, a little bit of Bond add a dash of Mission Impossible

Shake, don't stirr...

Quote
Good morning Jim,

Earlier this week the Russian navy was put on high alert, and “exercises” were started in the North Atlantic region. In order to defuse this tense situation,  Minister of Defense Andrei Grechko has sent a message to NATO operations that the activity concerns a routine exercise and will be no threat to NATO nor its allies.  After some investigation we suspect that there is more than meets the eye, our Norwegian office informed us know that a few hours before the general alert was sounded, a Golf II class submarine was spotted leaving Soviet waters.

According to our sources, this specific ship, the K-118 is capable of carrying the new SS-N-5 ballistic missiles which are suspected to have an operational range of approximately 1500km and carry a nuclear warhead. If normal procedure was followed, the warheads cannot be activated nor launched without proper authorization from the Kremlin, however in view of these events we cannot be sure of this.

As of yesterday we have noticed increased activity from arms dealers around the world, most notable of which Dr. Amal Bin Khatun. We suspect Dr. Bin Khatun is linked to these series of events, as such we believe the best course of action for identifying the final destination of the ship and its dangerous cargo.  Being a Racing fan, Dr. Bin Khatun will be in Monaco during the Grand Prix, according to our sources, he has planned a party for his close friends and business partners in the Monaco Casino.

Your mission, if you choose to accept, is to find the submarine and its warheads and make sure they don’t fall into the hands of undesirable elements.

A team has been assembled and will be joining you in the Basel safe house shortly, as always should you or any of your team be captured or killed, the secretary general will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds.

full scenario may follow if my mind doesn't melt... ::)

Looks pretty cool.  I was totally expecting a "bond girl" type Specialty though, which means now my subconscious is trying to come up with one...

Sounds nifty, but my classic spy thoughs have been derailed after watching the recent OSS-117 flicks, so I keep seeing Jean Dujardin smiling cockily and triggering WWIII.

Well, the two I was refering to are from the 00's and are parodies of the genre with Jean Dujardin (the lead in The Artist) playing a casually sexist, racist, imperialist, French (in that one comment in the first movie is "You're so... French.") buffoon. A bit more restrained then Peter Sellers, but in tne same vein.

Workable as a campaign idea, with him as a NPC and the PCs as his sidekicks doing all the work.

How about:

1) After mission briefing, scene opens with PCs driving E-type Jaguar round winding roads headed for Monte Carlo.

Screech of tyres and red Ferrari 250 GTO appears from side road. Headlights lift up and machine gun fire sprays at the PCs.

Time for a quick Chase Dramatic Conflict. Remember to slip in a big truck coming the wrong way.

Most likely bad guys car ends up over the edge, rolling downhill in a ball of flame. PCs left to wonder if their cover is blown.

2) Dr. Bin Khatun is planning a meeting with the sub somewhere in the Med. He is awaiting contact with a member of the renegade crew during the party. There he will receive coordiates for meeting. BK has fast Super Yacht in harbour to get him to location.

3) Russians have assigned gorgeous agent Natalia Romanov and helpers to watch BK and follow him to sub.

4) After meeting BK, Contact panics and PCs have to chase him round Grand prix circuit, preferably during the race !!

5) PCs race BK to location. Fast speed boats, scuba gear, etc.

Just rambling but might be of use to you  :)

Also, remember that Monaco is the most dangerous course on the F1 circuit because it's so tight. If you mess up there's pretty much nowhere to go other than the wall. It also has a brutal hairpin after a straight in a tunnel that drivers basically have to make half blind while their eyes adjust.

Awesome. Imagine that plus PCs having to keep one eye on fleeing crew member and maybe gunfire from some of BKs thugs !!!
