When not running my characters through a gauntlet of misery I run paper & pencil RPG's, get beat up at jiu-jitsu and train my dog not to put his junk on things.

I'm also a big fan of comic writers like Chris Claremont and Marv Wolfman. Many of the characters they created are still my favorites.

Blackmail, vandalism, thievery, kidnapping, and murder are just some of the ways companies knock each other down a peg. No self-respecting businessman would sully his hands with such a project, thus an underground network of civilian operatives fills that need.
Individuals who are brave (or insane) enough to assist in these secret missions are rewarded with either a fat check or a dirt nap. Due to the dangerous and unpredictable nature of these missions, civilian operatives are often called…
