Frenemies

Synergon Office RPG frenemiesA frenemy is any employee that has reason to attack Team members. Frenemy stats are determined by their department and tier. While each frenemy has a specialty, they mostly come from the standard departments. The name will reflect the specialty, the department and the tier of each frenemy. For instance, the Spiteful Network Administrator is a spiteful employee from the IT department, tier 2. Frenemies have all skills and abilities native to their department and tier. Some have extra abilities. The Greater Frenemy is similar (i.e. Greater Spiteful Network Administrator), but gains +25MP, +35AP and the Intimidate skill. The Boss decides what particular level and attributes each frenemy has, as well as the frenemy’s department.
