Default A roleplaying-oriented idea

Autoduel: A True Underdog Story

Average Joes Training Center is in danger of being take over by GloboDuelist. The only chance for Average Joes to survive is to win the AADAA (American Autoduel Association of America) team tournament in Las Vegas.

Can a band of misfits triumph against corporate evil?

To mis-quote the movie ...

If you can dodge a grenade, you can dodge a ball !

(and the coach starts throwing grenades at the players)

No. You should savagely beat them down and conclude by telling them that it is good to make money and hence corporations are good. I'm sure they'll appreciate a grittier and more realistic turn to your campaign. Then they can sell out and become tools.

No need for that!
Use a Secret Patron [Group] who buys them all the stuff they want, and pays for training!
Since they're fighting a Large Corp, there's gotta' be either another Multinational, or a 'Donald Trump/Warren Buffet' somewhere who's itchin' for some revenge, and doesn't mind using a band of misfit's both to leverage against some old-enemy, as well as payout a nice Jackpot (in this case, if Joe Average wins, the 'Vegas odd's will have paid enough to reimburse the costs to stake them), and provide some Sheer-Comedy to be used for years in Tri-dee shows!
Bonus: Average Joe's get to keep the stuff, and a nice Royalty deposited every month! :D

[I want in on this game! I wanna' play the Cranky Ole' Vet' in the Wheelchair, named: "No Frills Yoda"!]

That was how the movie was supposed to end, thus the "True Underdog Story." ;)

And I'll play in anything copeab runs, if I had the time and was nearby.
