The original CP2020 PnP game made music a game mechanic by which rockers could gather crowds and influence NPCs. The classic use for that was to create a distraction or otherwise drum up some cannon fodder to keep corpsec busy for a little while.
Given the recent love that the staff has shown to performers via the "crowd" system, it seems like the foundation is there to grow the system a bit.
The end result / new game idea that I am proposing is to allow performers to spawn troublemakers on Gold (or maybe even Green & Blue).
(In an amusing twist, maybe pro-corporate performers can whip up some trash golem hate and spawn troublemakers into Red sector who then randomly attack gangers and Mixers.)
This should be a fairly high level / difficult skill check ability.
There should be a few different "venues" where performers can generate crowds. Venues might be: Street, Bar / Club / Restaurant, Broadcast (NLM TV) The wider reaching the venue, the more difficult the skill check. A venue like KMB might fit multiple venues.
The "trouble" could manifest as anything from Anti-Corp or Anti-Mix statements on SIC, all the way up through full blown riots.
I am realizing that this might be leaning too heavily into a PvE dynamic. It would make sense to limit the use of it / give it a high recharge timer. For example, only allow a "major" performance once a month, or once a quarter.
