Northwind, The Wordsmith
Northwind is professor for various disciplines at various universities in various countries. He is the author of a number of books (although nothing that you would have read) and quite a lot of technical papers. You might have seen reporting about his work in National Geographic, Time and The Wall Street Journal.
He prides himself on a number of technical skills that are almost entirely useless outside his own imagination. These include extinct martial arts, programming languages (both ephemeral and antiquated), quaint webdesign, obscure algebra and the ability to make sense of almost everything
He spends his time on mysterious online sites run by a bunch of weird enthusiasts.

I really like the following storygames by others authors:
It is the end of January 2020. You are a network scientist who is asked to advise on possible responses to Covid-19, a new infectious disease that is just emerging. At this early stage much is till uncertain, but know what needs to be done. Can you get your numbers straight and will others listen to your advice at all?
I have refrained from political commentary as much as possible and steered around some partisan issues. As a result all characters are purely fictional, and the game needed to be fairly linear. Nevertheless there are important choices and three different endings.
Play this as a quiz about maths, epidemiology and communication skills.
This is a story about leadership and tough choices. It is set in a darkish fantasy world. Lead a spear of legionnaires into neutral territory as they take on a dangerous mission.
There will be a lot of decisions to make and every single one has consequences. Your main character, Willen, is not without flaws, but ultimately he must become a good leader. The story rewards choices that a good leader would make.
Let's get started because, you need to go to jail...
