|The poster for the movie that inspired this|
Alright I've got my film fanboying out of the way. So what does this have to do with Cyberpunk? Quite a lot actually. It has been a while since I ran a cyberpunk game. (My player got a little tired of playing dark horses and wanted to play a more heroic character. Which I felt was incredibly out of place in cyberpunk. So we've started a superhero campaign using Mutants and Masterminds instead). So when I suddenly got inspired by this movie's blurb I decided to run with it.

Ideally this would be a solo campaign. Best run with a player that's willing to be given a pre-generated character and then run with them. Then again it could also be used for a group of four or five players as well. One of whom plays the young executive out for revenge. While the others play various members of his entourage. Such as his bodyguard/head of security, his personal physician (a Medtech of some description), a Media consultant, a personal Fixer and perhaps a Netrunner to dig up more dirt on his rivals. For such a campaign I'd probably consult this article by Richard Balmer over at his blog Vircades Project. Of course such a game would require a lot of maturity on the part of the players. To follow the lead of one player, of course I don't mean that they would be mindless henchmen to the Corporate player. They could just as easily betray the central character. Which would lead to an interest final arc of burning the candle at both ends. Thematically a very cyberpunk concept.
