Last issue, I talked about some moons and asteroids nearby Ita. This issue,I’ll cover some people that the crew will meet during their journeys.First, the PCs need a good bad guy/crime–boss to go up against. I’m notgoing to have the game be about beating down an underworld Don but Ifigure that if I have one in the works, then I can pop him in anytime I want. And he’s gonna be a good foil for the PCs.

That day he became a fullmember of the gang.Li Ho married and had children and worked his way up. He made friendsand eliminated rivals and no–one could trace any dirty deeds back to him.He cultivated friendships with other criminal groups and gathered allies.Because of his great loyalty to his boss, he waited until the death of the oldman before personally killing his boss’s son with his bare hands and only he knows where the body is buried.Li Ho was still a young man when he “inherited” his position.

And there were plenty of obstacles to remove.
