I did it!... Oops...

It's hard being a henchman. The stress of being in a high speed chase, tied with the threats from your boss if you do fail, can be too much to handle. But it's even harder if you cannot do anything very well at all. But you got an opening, so make your new boss proud in this game system where, yes, you do succeed in the task, but 10 things go horribly wrong. Strong roleplaying recommended.
