You think it isn't?

It's about the length of a cycle, and Damon said it's highly unlikely any cards from whatever the most recent cycle would be on it if it were to see some changes - that suggests to me that the MWL might see updates as often as once every cycle or two

Mills was studying the prisoner sitting across her intently, trying to evaluate how much of the toughness was genuine, and how much an act.
The scar looked too perfect, too well placed. Probably as engineered as most of the military grade body, to elicit the proper instinctive residual responses.

Still, she was the work. The bombings were no act. Neither were the leaks.
No name. No significant data prior to the attacks. The G-mods all refurbished and upgraded common mass market. The cybernetics custom made. Software was yet to be breached, but held no recognizable signature - neither from public nor from sensitive corp black lists.

All that screamed strong economical support - maybe corporate.

"You know, you may think making use of yout right to remain silent is the best move for now, but I'm no cop.

- There was a farmer once. While laboring his fields, he found a ring. Djinn bound to it. The spirit offered him a wish.
- Cut off the bullshit story. Exact. Data.
- Now the Djinn was malicious, and he knew the farmer hated his neighbor. No one could have told you why. The man had never done him no harm. Yet he hated him with a passion. And so the Djinn offered him the following deal:
- Is this going anywhere?
- 'I shall grant you anything you ask for, but anything you're given, your neighbor will receive twice over.'
The farmer asked for the night to think things through, filled with rage, eaten away by the very idea that his neighbor would always get twice better than he ever would. When morning came he was assured in his choice though, went straight at the Djinn, and asked him to tear one of his eyes off.
- Cute story, but what I'm asking is why you farming girl want my eyes off!

Seven hundred and thirteen seconds. The building and several of those around it exploded.

Barely a moment after, the surviving NAPD members had to start dealing with remnants of their defense grid gone rogue.

*Beedle-beep* Jackson tore his eyes away from the glittering sea and studied his PAD. The licensing acquisition had gone through, at last. One of the Consortium’s defence commercialisation programs’ latest outputs, a construction sim, would be advertised and sold through NBN Edutainment. Having started life as one of their section security head’s pet projects the core of the software would remain proprietary, but the version repackaged by Fringe Applications was good to go. Which meant the project was coming here, to him, in SanSan. He turned around as the elevator reached his floor. Forcing a cheery smile on his face he stepped through into the office, his sandals making next to no noise on the carpet. The office was depressingly clean and bright, with loud colours everywhere. Like his suit, he thought. Still, better that than the dark and dreary boxes he kept ending up in when he was sent off to liaise with other ‘corps – and he found himself doing that more and more these days.

Something gleaming in the room caught his eye; he stopped by the desk of one of his imagineers.
“Is that doggie new Kat?” he said, gesturing to the polished ornament.
“Yes Mister Howard. An old friend from school gave it to me the other day. Will it be a problem?”
“I don’t see why it would be”, he smiled “and please, call me Jackson”.

Taking a cup of YucaBean from the refreshment hub, he continued over to the conference table and tapped the console by his chair. The fact that it looked like a dinosaur didn’t bother him one bit – there was a reason he specialised in infunmation, after all. The rest of his team looked up from their PADs and their notes, though a few holoscreen visors remained, glowing like halos around their foreheads. He sat down, and steepled his fingers.

“So people, we have the licence, that’s what’s brought us here today. Now how do we bring it to the world? How are we going to sell it?”

The table erupted in discussion, and Jackson let the conversation flow. He occasionally steered it with a few choice words, here and there. Compared to his previous work in project design and development it was child’s play, but his heart started to sink as his team’s conclusions were drawn.

Past performance results, cost efficiency and reduced rollout times were all highlighted. With SanSan’s excellent trunk transmission stations the project could be launched within a day or so. Still, Jackson sighed. He liked to innovate, to develop new ideas and find uses for old ones – doing the same old thing wasn’t for him, but he couldn’t argue with the results.

“So, it’s settled then”, he said, trying to keep the resignation out of his voice “we run a month of Astroscript projection, with nightly news ticker slots at seven, nine and twelve. In the second week we…”

In far off New Angeles a console bleeped. Its owner smiled. It paid to be generous, it seemed. Toggling the interface connection, the smile faded. SanSan. That didn’t bode well. Not much of a chance to get in and out in time. A long night of work loomed, if any payoff was to be had.

I guess, but I think it's more just to get across the sense of location - a mobster beating up a guy with a baseball bat is a standard thing, but baseball is a US/Japanese thing, whereas cricket is the biggest sport in India - given that India in Android is a nation with at least one megacity it's probable that it's still around and there's a lot of money in it (the current top-level indian cricket league is something like the 21st sports league in the world for revenue, despite being only 8 years old and in India)

If you can stomach an overall mediocre movie for the few moments that work, it might be worth an evening if you have nothing better to do. Check the euro cut if you do.

Snitch triggers on approach, so Untouchable won't trash itself. In your other examples it would.

Untouchable trashes when the run ends, but ONLY if there is at least one subroutine that you DIDN'T break on an encountered piece of ice.

If before (Emergency Shutdown), it's basically a weaker Criminal Crypsis, since Crypsis costs a click for each ice, while derezzing stuff usually takes 2-3 setup time. If after (Crescentus), there's already Eater.

A Program that lets you make a run and immediately approach an ice that was derezzed during the same turn might be more synergistic.

>> No.47989969

See, it's less about derezzing and more about working against freshly rezzed ice. So it's good for facechecking while you have no rig yet, like a Faerie AI.

And after everything is rezzed, it stops working until you derez something, forcing the corp to rez it again.

So it's also sort of good with the blackguard/snitch combo.

>> No.47991867

So is Crypsis though, which happens to have the exact same numbers as it, without the 'rezzed this turn' condition. A boost in its abilities is probably needed; either a cheaper install cost, stronger paid abilities, or higher base strength.

>Crypsis, which happens to have the exact same numbers as it

The added click cost of Crypsis is not to be dismissed so easily.

The click requirement on Crypsis is huge for tempo, I made this for early pressure and econ denial, but it needed an equally huge downside.

Though I may be making it too weak to avoid a Faust.

Maybe a install cost of 3 or 4.

>> No.47992175

While true, especially during the first few turns, Crypsis doesn't lose its utility after the ice is rezzed. Which is I suppose is the intent of it anyway.

As an additional afterthought though, I'm probably looking at it negatively as I don't think Criminals need a strong AI to brute force their way through the early phase, especially since it doesn't offer anything new compared to the other AI programs. You did mention more or less the same thing in the original post though, so eh.

An AI breaker really is the only type of breaker that could reasonably be tied to recently rezzed ice.

Its stats are less important, I just wanted to make a card that incorporated that mechanic and the trashing one. Any other ideas how to do that?

>> No.47992637

How about something like this:

3 Cost
Event: Run
Make a run. Once during the run, when you encounter a piece of ice that was rezzed during this turn, you may search for a non-AI icebreaker from your stack or heap and install it, ignoring all costs.

When the run ends, if you did not break all subroutines on a piece of encountered ice, trash the icebreaker that was installed using this card's effect. Otherwise, shuffle it back into your stack.

Could probably use some ambiguity checking and weakened a bit I think.

The hangar harbored the most meticulous piles of junk ever. Rows after rows of color-coded broken parts, some still bleeping, others buzzing or droning about, discarded zombie-tech of a world barely holding out. West corner held an improvised lab, where Lovegood was... well, doing whatever it is a world-caliber theorist on corporate-warfare needs doing when the world is going to hell as all planned.

Kim didn't like the man. But looked up to him. Had been one of the very first to highlight the necessity of adapting guerrilla tactics to a world which allowed corporations to subdivide and recombine at the drop of a hat, unfettered by the legal and managerial necessities that had kept them static in previous centuries, now able to create laser-focused units dedicated solely to the task at hands, and then soon discarded.

The end result of the upgrade process was derisively nicknamed PrimTech - Primitive Technology. No need for any high-tech runner shenanigans to maim a corp. Just attack the land lines so that it cannot charge up ICE. Just make it so the minimal security costs are so high there is no profit to be made in the projects. Just melt down those sensitive servers that won't have copies for security reasons - used to be that when you wanted to erase years of human ingenuity, you had to wage wars, burn down whole buildings... now all you needed to do was pull out a plug. Smash a few brains. No reason to let the corps be the only ones to make use of that modern feature...

More importantly, the man was a top of the line engineer that hated man-crushing technology with a passion. A clockmaker who specialized in making clocks stop.
Word on the grapevine was that he was behind the 23 seconds incident. Kim knew it wasn't so. Servers would never have gone back up had it planned it.

- Nice to see you too Edward. How is the family? Wife? Dog? Children?
- Riots will be starting soon. I have enough resources on hands to deal with the checkpoint *or* the golem. Not both. You can save lives.
- Didn't the union big shots call this off?

- You want I should dispatch that one?
- No, I want you to talk with him, and once we've convinced you, help us advocate equal rights for bioroids.
- You were anyone else I'd punch you senseless for even daring to...
- He passes all the lifeforms test. All of them. And then some. If we can find what made this happen and infect the HB maintenance network, we can make it so every bioroid in circulation becomes self-aware, with a will of its own. Then you don't have to destroy them, because either HB will have to, or by forcing legislation to grant bioroids legal protection you'll have made it so the corps cannot replace human workers at will. I already have the Exile looking into HB's code dump. But the later part of this project? It's going to be all about human workforce, and you're the best I have on hand for that... now the question is, what is going to come first, the needs of your people, or you hatred for what we built?

Kim gave the picture another look, the dead eyes on the golem staring back, mocking him. He could easily have beaten Lovegood and taken what he needed. He wanted to. Not like he had a reputation to uphold. Not like anyone would have cared that much. But *he* did.

- Fine. But I'm not making any promises if your friend isn't *very* convincing.

And even then, Kim thought, there's still going to be ways to make sure HB does destroy the lot of them...
