Show them the barrel of the gun (Missions and Threats)  - 
 
So, I've kind of been obsessing over a way to do this. Since I read the World of Darkness: Chicago for the chronicles of Darkness line I have been trying to find a way to simulate factions acting against each other in ways that are both subtle and political on one hand, and overt and aggressive on the other. I've looked at both fronts from apocalypse world and dungeon world, and factions from Stars Without Number. I am now looking at 2ed Apocalypse world threats. During this research I cam across the Unruly tag which has you create subfactions within the faction and have them periodically make moves against one another. I want to do that in the sprawl. I want to have a group of lower level, city-bound factions act against one another in the background while the player characters do things. What frame work would be good for building small faction moves to not only relate to their attention on the players but each other?

Bought Urban Shadows, and looking it over. My initial reaction was to convert the faction moves into something like the shadowrun etiquette skill as a broad mix of reputation and personal knowledge of a categorizing of people. Also think Debts and Favors would be useful for a game focusing on mafia,and other types of organized crime or other things when cold hard cash won't do. Drives seem like a useful thing to place on all npcs. MC faction moves seem like a good way to bridge together like-threats or contacts, but the player faction moves don't seem different from name a contact or hit the streets.

In these coalition wars would +Arumba be advantaged by releasing nations from the coalition? Weaken the invaders by creating friends?

Chrome it, bathe it in neon (Inspiration)  - 
 
So I'm MCing the sprawl this coming Monday, and one of the inspirations I threw out there for my players was a Prohibition Inspired city-state of Chicago. For me that means corruption, the mob, and most importantly the smuggling of vices. So my question is should I use scarcities from Apocalypse World during character creation to define what the city state is banning? Or is there another mechanic to get across a theme of illegal resource control?

We discussed things during the setting discussion before corporations and that set up for the corporations to fit the setting themes. 
Seeing as we got the Health Department (Control and Regulation is their business) and a front for the mafia in a water and waste company (pollution clean-up coming up as untouchable cover) I think we were successful.

How much would you be willing to pay for Pau Gasol to be your back up center? I realize he still may want to start but it seems like he is in a similar situation to Johnson. Also seems appealing to have Olympic level champion talent in our big men's ears.

Gasol is very good. If we could get him as a backup, dang... we'd have a pretty rockin roster.

You should all collude to take out the Pink and Blue blobs as to give yourselves avenues of expansion east and westward.

Goals for this war? Hurt Aragon. Break their alliances and PU. Humiliation. Keep the truce timer short and peace them out early. Make them only strong enough to fight Castile.
