Actions: Moral Scheming

Description

Any action that plots or plans to gain a material or social advantage over someone through immoral means. This is separate from economic scheming, which is often directly tied to a commercial situation. It is also not like deception, because the deception has not happened yet. The specific example is Boon "scheming" to take out the car, but there are other instances of characters ratiocinating or plotting to do so. JB
