AbadarCorp


General Discussion


I need a name for a subsidiary company belonging to AbadarCorp. The company is essentially their corporate 'black ops' division. They handle all of the questionable science/research, exploration/exploitation, and paramilitary operations.


Inquisitech?

Equalibris: they balance the scales.


Malthus Security Solutions.

AbadarCorp Contingency Accounting Services.

Both because, in Abadar's eyes, black ops is a matter of quietly balancing the books, and also because the best place to hide something is in the most boring place possible.


AbadarSolutions is what I use.

Also, The Vault Keepers is the name I give to the more fanatical members of the religion


It probably depends on what the laws are regarding corporations and subsidiaries.

Does having a incorporated business that owns other incorporated business provide legal protections in the pact world?

Because if not, it wouldn't be a subsidiary. It would just be a part of the regular business. You would have accounting, acquisitions, and "re-balancing" divisions, etc.

They'd use some sort of code word for it, but it'd just be another word to mean "hit squad".

They also might just hide it in plain sight.

"Uh oh. Here come the "Level 5 Account Managers"."

"You account has been...terminated."


"You got a problem with that?"


Honestly, the more I think on this the more I love the idea that just higher "level" o existing divisions.

"Acquisitions Department" can be members who go and get things...by force.

"Account Managers" can terminate accounts....by assassination. Or be skilled negotiators to keep contracts going.

Really, you can use all sorts of euphemisms to cover basically everything you would want them to do.

I once came up with an entire campaign concept centered around this idea in this thread here:

Quote:
AbadarCorp is a massive, sprawling company, with branches doing all kinds of things out in the Pact Worlds. Every now and again, though, a branch does something...questionable. Promote the wrong director, create a product with troubling side-effects or hire a scientist whose ethics turn out to be TOO flexible. That's where you come in. Formed as a collaboration between AbadarCorp and the Stewards, you're an elite team sent to audit obscure AbadarCorp enterprises, ensuring their activities follow both company regulations and Pact World laws. When a branch manager begins violently crushing his android employees attempt to form a union, when a new brand of cookie appears to drive their consumers insane with cravings, when an entire research facility goes dark and their last transmission sounds like an angry roar, you're sent in to investigate, and if necessary, neutralize the problem with deadly force. Officially, you're company auditors, but most lower level employees call you...THE CLEANUP CREW.


I would use slightly different wording in places, but what was saying is very much the same sort of idea.


Triaxus Corps.

Yesterday I was running a scenario where an Aspis Consortium manager proposes transferring a dissatisfied employee to the Community Outreach Program, and the players were wondering if that was code for putting out a hit on the person.

I'd imagine they'd call them Maintenance. They have keys to everything, and handle the dirty business.

The Gavel.

Named after the gavel of Abadar, the hammer carried by Abadar's herald, the Lawgiver.

In my game, well, Abadar's symbol is the key, and these are like his black ops, so I called them the Black Keys. XD

Sounds like a good vernacular name. Not precisely what you see printed on someone's office door, more how people call it. Variants: skeleton keys or master keys. Or locksmiths.

Or, pickers.

How about grinners? Maybe lovers? Or perhaps sinners?
