    I feel bad about killing you all off in the previous nonsensical story thread, so I'll direct one to make up for it.

    You are a BBEG. Or rather, were. You had an established organization, loyal henchmen, the works. However, your best henchmen were killed by a secret agent, and your headquarters have been destroyed. Your assets have been frozen, and your organization dissolved. But you got away.

    And you want revenge.

    Your escape pod has crash-landed on the border of Italy and Austria, about 200 miles from your old headquarters. The year is 1988 for technology and map purposes. You speak English, Italian, and German. On your person you have:

    Suit (dirty, torn, and singed)
    Briefcase with $20,000 USD
    9mm pistol and 10 bullets

    Inside the escape pod you have:
    First aid kit
    four MREs
    water purification tablets

    The pod gives off a distress signal within 15 minutes of impact. You may want to start leaving.

    Describe the area.

    Five minutes down.

    Check self for injuries, use first aid kit if necessary. Otherwise, open the escape pod and get going.

    Revenge? They know who I am and other than a bit of cash I have no means of exacting said revenge, and I don't even know what the make and model of my handgun is.

    Anyway, disassemble handgun and bury it beneath a bush because in 80s Europe, on a border between two countries, being found with a firearm is a world of shit

    Discard jacket if it's too dirty and torn to wear. Walk to nearby road and see if you can flag a taxi, otherwise walk to nearest town, preferably in Italy

    The area is slightly forested, with mountains to the south and two lakes to the northeast. You're up on a large foothill, and see a road about two miles away.

    Move from large enough tree to tree, making our way to the road. We've got a briefcase, a suit, a gun, and that businessman look.

    How's about we play that role?
    >> Protoman !iPSalBnWrg 10/17/09(Sat)21:38 No.6316969
    You realize the gun is more trouble than it's worth. You dissemble it and leave it in a bush.

    Taking off your jacket, you check yourself for injuries. You don't seem too beat up, so you leave the escape pod and head towards the road.

    Once you are at the road, you see nothing to the east, but to the west you see what may be a border checkpoint. Cars are coming from either direction semi-regularly.
    >> Hammerknife !7ITukp3Pj2 10/17/09(Sat)21:40 No.6316985
    20k in the briefcase will raise questions with the border guards. Head east and hope a taxi shows up at some point, otherwise continue until you come across civilization.
    >> Anonymous 10/17/09(Sat)21:40 No.6316998

    Did we have any sort of government ties? Connections to people within the United States or Soviet Union, East or West Germany?
    If Yes, then Head North-East.
    If No, Head South-West Towards Italy.
    >> Anonymous 10/17/09(Sat)21:41 No.6317007
    So how well known are we as a BBEG?

    International criminal?

    Then again, if we warranted a secret agent to take us down we had to be big.

    Hitchhike and try to get an eastward car to pick us up.
    >> Protoman !iPSalBnWrg 10/17/09(Sat)21:46 No.6317057

    You were the head of a global crime ring, and have some dealings with various nations of the Warsaw Pact.

    You start walking east, unnoticed by anybody at the border checkpoint. Every few minutes you stop and try to flag down a car. After 30 minutes of this, a pickup truck stops and the driver rolls down their window.

    Tell him that your car broke down and ask him for a ride to town in order to call for a tow. Speak Italian.
    >> Anonymous 10/17/09(Sat)21:52 No.6317121

    Feed the driver some bullshit about how he was in a vehicle accident in German. It's technically the truth, Yeah? Ask him if he can take you to the nearest relatively large town/city or however far he is willing to take you. Thank him.
    >> Anonymous 10/17/09(Sat)21:53 No.6317132

    Whoops. Not he as in the driver, but he as in us.

    So... Replace he with us. Yes. Lets go with that!
    >> Protoman !iPSalBnWrg 10/17/09(Sat)21:57 No.6317169

    You calmly tell the man that your car broke down and you need a ride to get into town and make a call for it to get towed. He offers to jump the battery or replace the tire, but you say it's engine problems. He agrees to give you a ride, and the two of you head off.

    This man's name is Guido, and he says he is a reporter for a magazine. The nearest town is about an hour's drive from here, and has a population of 50,000.

    Guido casually asks about what's in the briefcase.

    Stick pinky in mouth and go "one MEEEEELLLLEEEEON DOLLARS" then laugh and say it's some legal paperwork for the import/export you work for
    >> Anonymous 10/17/09(Sat)22:04 No.6317256

    I agree.
    >> Protoman !iPSalBnWrg 10/17/09(Sat)22:09 No.6317284

    You take 2 paradox damage for referencing a movie that won't come out for another ten years.

    Regardless, Guido laughs, and accepts that as an answer. He starts telling you about his work, his family back home, and what he's doing in Austria. Evidently he is writing about a hockey championship game coming up. He doesn't sound too excited though.

    An hour passes, and you reach the town. Guido drives you to a diner with a pay phone, and gets out to go to the bathroom while you make your call. At this moment it's about 6:00 PM.

    You enter the diner. It's relatively crowded, and you hear a news anchor on TV reporting about international criminal A. Non having gone missing after his suspected headquarters caught fire and collapsed. They show a blurry image of you for about two seconds, and then go on about goats.

    Pull about four hundred dollars out of your briefcase and stuff it in your pocket. Give 20 to Guido for the ride, begin making an imaginary pay phone call to a towing company then to the 'import export' you work for explaining your predicament. Wait till he leaves, then find a clothing shop for a change of clothes.
    >> Protoman !iPSalBnWrg 10/17/09(Sat)22:30 No.6317547

    You quickly grab about 400 dollars in cash, and put it in your pocket. While Guido is in the can, you pick up the payphone, mime putting coins in, and fake-dialing. You then pretend to call the fictitious company, explaining your predicament. When Guido comes out, you quickly end the phone call.

    Guido asks how everything is, and you say that your company will have everything taken care of, and you will stay in town for the night. You hand Guido a twenty, and thank him for giving you a ride and leave the diner.

    Once you have given Guido the slip, you look for a clothing store. This town isn't too big, so you find one and buy another change of clothes. Nothing as nice as your suit once was, but better than a t-shirt and shorts.

    It's about 7:10 now, and the streetlights just turned on. You now are down to $19,600 in the trunk, $310 in the pocket (I'm not sure what the USD was worth in 80's Austria, so just a rough estimate).

    Do you look for somewhere to stay for the night, or do you try to hitchhike again?
    >> Anonymous 10/17/09(Sat)22:37 No.6317625

    Probably best to settle down for the night and plot our return to power and ultimate revenge against that damnable agent.

    A random stranger in a motel near a known escape point is a bad idea. Head to the bus depot and see if you can catch a ride to Bonn or Belgrade, depending on which one has more contacts
    >> Protoman !iPSalBnWrg 10/17/09(Sat)22:47 No.6317761

    You check into an inn. You sign under a fake name, and pay in cash. Upon entering your room, you drop the briefcase for the first time since you fled your headquarters and laugh. This all seems kind of surreal now.

    While laying down in bed, you start going over your allies and who would help you at the moment. Your safest bet is to go into the East- Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, the USSR. You still have contacts in all of these nations, and it is likely word of your demise will not have reached them yet. You begin mulling over a plan. But first, you decide which country to enter, and how to get in. Once you enter any of the neighboring countries to the east, you should be home free, but until then, you run the risk of detection and capture.
