Instead of beating the sub-atomic particles that was once a dead horse about Jovians and depictions of them or what not, I wanted to see if we can flesh out a scenario for Firewall PCs that involves cooperation between factions that you would never expect cooperation between. The solar system is fractured between different ideologies and ways of thinking. Transhumanity as a species is fractured. However, while EP is all about clashing ideologies and horror and extinction being threatened everywhere, there /is/ hope: it's not Delta Green, after all. (Unless you run your game that way.) People can find themselves working with other people that they never expected to. Gatecrashing does a scenario like this: where Oversight and Firewall create a tentative alliance to bring down whatever Ozma's doing in a facility near a neutron star. One of the scenarios I really wanted to do was to have PCs intentionally (or unintentionally) having Jovians and Titanians work together towards some common goal. Have the scenario start off with them as enemies, but eventually have them face down a threat that forces them to work together---and come away, if not as friends, then at least as people who have a little more understanding of each other, even if they disagree on ideological points. So what is this scenario? Where would it take place? Should the two start off as official allies, and simply have that alliance be tested along the way, or should it be fire-forged in some common tragedy between the two? P.S.: I refuse to hear the "this will never happen" route. I don't care how ideologically entrenched you might depict one or both of these factions' populations in your games; I want to recreate the spirit of the WWI Christmas Truce, except it's not just a truce, it's legit cooperation against a much larger threat.
