could it work?

It could work in theory, but you make the mistake in assuming that your players will be smart.
Not only are players dumb, but you as the DM might also make some unseen failures to communicate the situation clearly.
If you are confident in your skills and those of your players though, it could be an awesome game. I'd love to play that game.

Of course it COULD work, but whether it WOULD work depends on your gamers. I've got a group of overthinking strategists who would see right through that in a heartbeat. Consider employing red herrings to keep them from figuring EVERYTHING out right away, and also consider having a left-field BBEG who was backing it all along (think Soros, if you're going with the lefty parallels).

Red Herrings can be good, but they can also easily frustrate the party by sidelining them with unfun quests. If you use red herrings, it's important to add some rewarding content as well.
I've been in plenty of games where the DM led us on red herring quests that felt like a waste of time both in and out of character.

Agreed. The red herring should both reassert the main plot, as well as have Gib's for both the effort and the sidetrack, as well as some teaser side info, to keep the plot going

I actually used a Red Herring in my current game, and nearly led the party halfway across the map to negotiate with a Giant Warlord. However, the Cleric was wise enough to cast Commune and sort out the bad information. Clerics can do anything.

Knees are non-lethal tactics, unless the target has prior ingested a lethal dose of fentanyl.

Don't forget inferior ripoffs of anime characters
Especially boring one-note ones that are only funny or interesting thanks to interactions with other characters
Drizzt doourden ripoffs probably carpool with Roranoa Zoro ripoffs
Also that one troon who insists on being the girl he sees himself as
and that one furfag who insists on being his fursona
and that fag who insists on slowing the pace of the adventure down for his character's Illumination Movie-tier character arc where he learns friendship really is magic or something

Often some variantion of edgelord or snowflake.
>Also that one troon who insists on being the girl he sees himself as
Also snowflake.
That's also better than the troon who plays a troon in-character just to remind everyone that he's a fucking troon.
>Furfag
Snowflake again.
>Last one
Still snowflake.
