(Derived from “GURPS: Action 2”. Basic Abstract Difficulty provides a penalty to player’s skill rolls against the organization or as a bonus to an organization man’s skill; think of it as ‘10+BAD = Random Henchman’s Skill’; general BAD ranges from 0 to 10, but organization-wide BAD should only range from 0 to 5; see Action for more information and how many BAD points are available for the organization)
A more detailed set-out of the organization’s areas of operation, goals, primary NPC’s, and other important information. If there are other BAD Factors which are important to the GM for running this organization, they’ll also be noted here.
Values for Patron, Contact and Enemy should be set in consultation with the GM and will depend on how much of an organization is effectively involved. Your enemy might be a megacorps but even in the worst of worlds the whole of such a massive organization will not know who you are let alone be actively inimical to you.
