I swear, I spend far too much time checking this forum.

Well hopefully it will grow as time goes on into a nice tight knit community!
I dig these story ideas. The one I'm actually charting out right now is about a cyborg boxing ring. I can't get the idea out of my head that a dirty boxing match arranged by corporate big wigs wouldn't be maybe the coolest thing ever.

That totally sounds like Van Damme's movie Lionheart. Bunch of rich LA executives pitting street fighters against each other in the dark corners of parking garages just to see some bloodsport.

That episode of Ghost in the Shell S.A.C was one of my favorites.

Here's an idea, you need to send your operatives to get an asset in transit from one secure location to the next. There are multiple convoys being run by the rival corp as smokescreen. You only have enough operatives to hit one convoy, and you need to decide which one to hit before the asset is secured at it's new location. The panic of a timed choice is delicious to me, mostly because it leads to fascinating and hilarious results.

I like that idea, but I'd go a step further and couple it with a lone agent infiltrating the enemy communications grid at the same time. Your main group is relying on him to relay communications to you to try and identify the correct convoy, he's under fire, you're running out of time...chaos ensues!
