The date is August 11th 1955 and I wake up after my first splice thinking that was easily the dumbest thing I have ever done in my life. When your body is being twisted from the inside as your DNA is being rewritten you get time to think about your life choices.
But right you have to remember what your name was and hope to god that the ADAM didn't fuck up your brain.
(First quest if this gets no interest I will delete it.)
After a few minutes you remember your name. Your name is Madison Harper and you are an employee of Fontaine Futuristics. You work at the genetic research labs at Point Prometheus.
So the trick is, to exploit our out of game knowledge about how things will turn out in the future, and become rich and privileged off it.
So first things first, even though we work for FF, we should buy stocks of Ryan Industries and shorts against FF.
And stay away from Fontaine's Department store.
Why are we caring about Sally when we've got bigger fish to fry? We're just trying to exploit Elizabeth when she arrives, maybe make a captive out of her and force her to do our bidding.
Either way, the bigger fish is getting rich and privileged. In three years we can do that, so what's our first step?
That we're working for FF already is a good step in the right direction.
The drinkable plasmids idea was terrible and wasteful though. In fact we can probably launch ourselves to prominence in the company just by knowing that beforehand and saving all the ADAM it will waste.
Seconding this that's a more savory idea.
Plus we know that the Plasmid market was already mostly accounted for up to and during the civil war in Rapture, but the arms market suspiciously lacks information.
Therefore we can become Madison Harper, arms dealer magnate and Chairwoman of Harp Arms. Some would question our sanity at first, but we'll make an absolute killing when the war comes. Hell, we'll charge by the bullet for every shot fired!
Perfect. So it looks like we've got something of a long term plan in mind. Plus we'll be set when the war hits, sitting pretty in our own little arms manufactory fortress of Rapture when the war hits.
So the question is, how do we get there from where we are; a common employee and new splicee of Fontaine Futuristics? Maybe not right now, but in the future we could jump the gun and be the one to sell Frank out to Ryan's boys when the tipping point is reached.
You start breakfast as you realize that you need to get to work and you feel a couple of ideas form in your head. The first of these ideas is guns that fires microwaves to cook food in minutes. The second idea is for a vending machine that provides weapon upgrades to it's customers.
Very well, into work we go!
What is our job specification and department? I know we're stationed in the genetics wing of Point Prometheus, but are we an actual scientist? A secretary? Marketing?
Also do we know or have any friends in appliances or housewares of FF? Might be hard to pitch a microwave gun as a genetics employee.
Ok, marketing is easier. What current projects are we involved with?
As for our friends, who do we think would be best to approach about an idea for a microwave gun? Probably so we don't run the risk of the idea being stolen, request to the right department that a microwave gun be constructed for genetic testing purposes, and then we can turn it around to household use.
Alright. So for our current work, lets get a marketing campaign idea going. Maybe that you it can help with basic household chores like picking things up and setting them back. More importantly though it can really help with sports like catching balls thrown and shooting them away to pass to a teammate or score.
As for the testing, yeah, lets put in a request with the... I want to say appliances department for an exposed microwave emitter intended for genetic testing.
You get to work and start work on the idea for the marketing campaign for the telekinesis plasmid and how it should be sold to the general public.
While on your lunch break you file a request with the appliances department for a microwave emitter to test the effectiveness of the Armored Shell gene tonic.
You are sitting alone eating your lunch of leftover dinner and a sandwich when you happen to listen in on your fellow employees discuss the opening of Fontaine's Department store.
You also realize that you have no idea what plasmid you injected yourself with. You decide to test it out.
 Electro Bolt
 Winter Blast
You test out your plasmid and see sparks of electricity come out of your hands. You focus the electricity and see bright blue currents surge through the veins of your left hand.
