The Downtown Data Heist

Nick Adams

The Sprawl is a game of mission based action in a gritty neon-and-chrome Cyberpunk future. You are the extended assets of vast multinational corporations, operating in the criminal underground, and performing the tasks that those multinationals can't do - or can't be seen to do. You are deniable, professional, and - ultimately - disposable.

In the Downtown Data Heist, the team is assembled to undertake what appears to be a simple case of corporate espionage. But as with all jobs in this dirty world, the danger doesn't end until the money's in the bank.

This Downtown Data Heist is one of The Sprawl's introductory missions previously run by the systems creator, Hamish Cameron, at GenCon, and as such may have been played by a number of people. This session assumes no knowledge of The Sprawl, or Apocalypse World.

The Sprawl
Running as a replacement for Trial By Jury. This will be an introductory game for players, and is the first time I've run The Sprawl. I'm happy to take first-timers as I've run many games teaching new systems and players. Game was run at GenCon within a two hour slot, but was rushed - so three hours should be plenty! If the game goes well and has sufficient players, I might be able to run it in round 6, but will need to see if it's a complete disaster first!
