Another bit of Netrunner news for you today from Fantasy Flight Games. This time we’re joining a gang down in The Underway with a new Runner who is an adept at shipping ‘goods’ through more backstreet channels. Oh and he comes with the support of some rather deadly gang members.
Blood In The Underway
The new runner, Armand ‘Geist’ Walker is a master criminal who will be using his ability (when you use the trash ability draw a card) to power through his deck, using a range of different Icebreakers and more and getting to his events quicker than ever. As well as that he’s causing a few problems for the Corp by utilising his gang connections.
The Corporations aren’t going to take this on the chin however and they have plenty of ways to mess with the Runner in response. Underway Renovation for example is one of a new phase of ‘face up’ Agendas for Weyland where they will keep destroying all the Runners hold dear if you don’t go and grab it.
Twin that with cards like Punitive Counterstrike (does damage dependent on the Agenda points the Runner has scored) which already exists in the Weyland repetoire and you’ll have the Runner in a bit of a quandry.
Are you up to date with these Data Packs?
