Worldwatch Wednesday: Keeping the World Safe
Worldwatch Wednesdays are named after Worldwatch One, a reference found the movie The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. In the forseeable future, I want to dissect various organizations appearing in TV / Movies / Comics / Novels with the noble goal of saving the world (either wholesale, or one person at a time).
In the Buckaroo Banzai film alone, you can talk about the Banzai Institute, the Blue Blaze Irregulars (and their feared strike teams), and the Hong Kong Cavaliers!
In RPGs, there are many, many iterations of this type of organization -- Bureau 13 from Stalking the Night Fantastic and F.R.E.E.Lancers from the Top Secret / S.I. supplement of the same name.
Worldwatch Wednesdays hopes to sneak a peek at each one of these, until they run out.
And so I leave you with the words of the Blue Blaze Irregulars:
"Treat us good, we'll treat you better.
Treat us bad, we'll treat you worse."
