Reign: A Game of Power

 Marquez “Big Meech” Flex

Marquez had the Deviance Aspiration

Marquez’s traits are: Ambitious, Insider, and Romantic

Marquez “Big Meech” Flex is a mid-level underboss in the newly formed McQueen cartel. Ever since the execution of former boss D.M. Sanders by unknown assailants, there’s been a power grab over territory within the four boroughs in San Myshuno: The Spice District, Uptown, Fashion Row, and Art of the City. Not only are smaller factions on the rise and seeking to take over, but the bosses from the surrounding cities know that San Myshuno is ripe for the pickings.

Outside cartels threaten Lamar McQueen’s reign as the new boss. Meech and his crew; The Thetas report directly to McQueen. Pressure is starting to build within the organization as there are many including the Thetas who feel disenfranchised by McQueen’s erratic actions and increasingly ineffective operations.

Lamar was a mentor to Marquez and showed…

Chapter 2 Sex, Guns & Cigarettes

Chap 3 is live on my blog. I will post on FB soon, but I have a lot of editing to do for future chapters. After chap 3 I think we’ll start to see Rico’s ruthless pragmatic methods he employs for his clients.

Reign: A Game of Power

(Sexual situations and nudity)

Detective Bella Vega POV:

The San Myshuno Drug Enforcement Task Force arrived early morning at the upscale Midtown Pointe Towers. It wasn’t your typical scene for a morning search; ten thousand dollar mortgage, a doorman, complimentary housekeeping, and all the fixings of high society life. The warrant was signed less than 24 hours ago. This wasn’t a Hollywood element of surprise raid.

I stood there, breathing through my nose, silently waiting. My hands were wrapped around my Glock, in the defensive position, as were the other officers on my team. Lt Lawrence Loomis, who headed the task force knocked loudly out the door. “This is the San Myshuno Police Department. We have a warrant to search the premises.”

I stood in silence with the other officers anticipating the next moment. The target isn’t some low-level dope boy on the corner with his pants hanging halfway down…

Chapter 3 Greed is Good

Chap 3 is live on my blog. I will post on FB soon, but I have a lot of editing to do for future chapters. After chap 3 I think we’ll start to see Rico’s ruthless pragmatic methods he employs for his clients.

Reign: A Game of Power

Rico’s POV

Grazier Technology retained Thomas Global Strategies for our mergers & acquisitions services. I don’t directly acquire companies through acquisition. Depending on the logistics of a corporate takeover, I may use several different strategies on the target to gain control of the company for my client. For Grazier, I’d consulted with my mentor and activist investor, Harrison Edward. Another term you could use that was more popular in the eighties, is a corporate raider. Harrison makes all the raiding Carl Ichan did in the eighties seem like child’s play.

Now, Grazier is preparing itself to be the center of news yet again after their sexual harassment scandal. They were looking to expand their core business and wanted to acquire a smaller firm that had developed new and innovative crypto technology and financial data security applications. Grazier was one of the largest software companies concentrated in data technology. As more…

Introducing Sebastian “Bash” Banks, One of the Main Characters in Reign: A Game of Power

Bash’s traits are: Materialistic, Snob, and Ambitious

Sebastian “Bash” Banks.

Catch Bash and all the other Players of A Game of Power on my main blog

Reign: A Game of Power

Bash is an ambitious young software developer for an up and coming firm, Jupiter Works. He graduated from Wharton at the University of Penn and went on to receive his Master of Science Program in Computation for Design and Optimization from MIT.

Bash has always thrived for greatness, as he didn’t want to live the life of his working-class upbringing. He has never held his father, Orvel in good regard. He sees him as an unambitious man who has kept a job in construction for over thirty years; nothing Bash wanted to ever aspire to. He doesn’t just disregard his father, but most in his family who have never strived for the same success as he.

Higher education, multiple degrees, and a large salary equal success and happiness. While the world may look at Bash’s achievements in admiration, the people he most desires acceptance from has never given it to him. Bash is kind of a paradox, in his mind because of their low birth, Bash wants his family to fall at his feet and revere him for all his achievements. At the same time, he has much disdain for them because they always seemed to be forever content with life in a lower working class neighborhood and working low paying blue collar jobs.

The Banks aren’t the only ones that Bash ferociously seeks approval from. All his life, through images in the media and real life encounters, he’s been told as a black man, he was doomed to fail; that his only chance for greatness was to be an athlete or rapper. If he didn’t achieve status through entertainment, he would either face jail through chasing money in a life of crime or end up just like his father, a man who only works six to eight months out of the year in a thankless construction job. Bash wants to be accepted into “The Great Society”. He wants to be on the same level as the controlling elite. To be welcomed into their country clubs, to marry their women, and to command and receive the same respect as the forefathers.

As one of the most talented software developers in his company, Bash has both the education and skills to become a software architect. But after years of being an employee of Jupiter Works, putting in his time and proving his capabilities, Bash has become bitter and resentful as he watched co-worker after co-worker get promoted over him. They didn’t have the education he had and in some cases hadn’t been with the firm as long as he has. The setbacks won’t stop him. He needs to be great, and he needs to be accepted. Whenever one door closes, Bash finds a window. He doesn’t even care how many he has to break, but no one will stop him in his pursuits while he is playing the game of power.
