Prince of Persia

Seventeen years have I, Jaffar, served as Grand Vizier to the Sultan of Persia. Now the hour of my triumph is at hand. Already I sit on his throne, and soon I shall have his daughter as well the Princess, whose beauty is like the stars and the moon.

Of course, I would never force myself upon this lovely creature. I shall give her a full hour to reach her own decision. She shall choose me of her own free will - or forfeit her life.

And yet she clings to her fantasy of rescue. The object of her childish infatuation? A young adventurer - a nobody - who is now, on my orders, a prisoner in my dungeons.

There will be no rescue. He shall never leave his prison alive. Even should he escape his cell, he could never survive the cunning traps and palace guards barring him from the Princess.

Yet suppose by some succession of miracles he prevails over all these? Ah, then I would be obliged to use certain forces of my own. Enchantment? Black Magic? These are but words. I speak of mysteries. Mysteries that no man or woman can withstand.

Syndicate

SYNDICATE -- THE STORY As the world's multinational corporations grew, their profits began to rival those of small countries. Soon they owned small countries and corporate influence was felt at the highest level of world government. Then, a European corporation perfected the CHIP. Inserted in the neck, the CHIP stimulated the brain stem to alter your every perception of the outside world. Better than any drug, the CHIP gave hope to millions by numbing their senses to the misery and squalor around them. The CHIP was a technological revolution and sold countless units with the slogan "Why change your world when you can change your mind". It also left the user open to auto-suggestion, and gave the corporations the perfect tool for manipulating the populace. Soon the corporations were at war among themselves, desperate to monopolize CHIP manufacture. It wasn't long before the Syndicates became the controlling force all over the globe.

As a young executive in a small European Syndicate, you're looking to make your mark. You observe from a control platform in an airship high above the teeming city streets as your agents, controlled by CHIP technology, spread the shadow of your terror. Each mission takes place among the canyons of concrete and steel, the mazes of streets and sewers, that our cities have become. The population goes about its business, moving among the traffic, commuting on trains, rushing to and from work, unaware of the violence about to explode around them.

There are over 50 named missions for you to choose between, but before you choose one, you need to develop an overall strategy for world domination. Tactical considerations vital to the ascendancy of your Syndicate include the of an adequate mission Budget, the skills and experience built up in the Cryo Chamber of potential agents, and developing your own maneuvering skills.

A Syndicate executive must be a master of strategy, assessing a mission environment and planning agent moves. An executive must also have the reflexes of a steroid-addicted sprinter and a remorseless lust for power to commit acts of gross violence -- but sleep soundly at night.
