Hostile Takeover

Concept: “If you thought the atrocities committed in the names of ancient gods were horrible, wait until you see what has been done in the name of profit.

Prepare your crew to fight, hall by hall, to take control of the whole complex and climb the corporate ladder… one bullet at the time.“
