Hostage Negotiator: Career is an expansion for the Hostage Negotiator system that requires the Hostage Negotiator base game, Hostage Negotiator: Crime Wave, and multiple Abductor Packs to play.
In this culmination of the Hostage Negotiator series, you will play ten years in the life of a negotiator — that is, if you don’t retire in shame sooner. In each “year” or campaign round of the game, you will resolve a career card that presents you with some narrative event that relates to or could impact your career based on the choice you make. Then, in most but not all years, you will be called to the scene of the latest hostage situation. Now, the result of each negotiation will impact the overall campaign and you’ll be tracking your career stress, your personal stress, your merit level (for promotions), and your rank, among other things.
After the negotiation, you resolve a personal card and are once again faced with a narrative event to resolve and, based on the result of your negotiation in that “year”, will be rewarded (or reprimanded) accordingly.
