Just weeks after the announced NAPD Most Wanted List, Montréal has their first Store Championship of the 2016 Netrunner season. Only one final month left before NAPD’s mandatory (and exciting) security upgrades come into effect, the runners and corporations of Montréal are allowed one last stand with their favourite phone-based runner economy and substantial HB ICE. Can Toronto visitor Aaron go the distance, all the way from loser’s bracket, besting Jerome’s fast-advance NEH?
The compelled bioroid Adam approaches the unguarded servers of Blue Sun. With no recollection of how ‘he’ had arrived at this point, and even less of an idea of why, Adam only understood one thing: he was programmed for a single purpose, to run.
Long time Montréal bluff-master and Jinteki player Dominic decides to show up to our Winter Kit with something a bit different than his usual dark red cards. With the unstoppable economy and heavy-duty ICE that comes with Weyland’s lunar power division, can Dom perform his tried-and-true Jinteki chicanery? Or will Jon’s financially solvent Chaos Theory make all the right calls, as she dances on the knife’s edge?
After getting much league time in with our compelled bioroid runner, Julien steps up to the plate with Adam, the mysterious Compulsive Hacker. Coming pre-installed with multiple humanity-serving directives, will this technological marvel break free from his creators’ chains, or will ‘he’ learn to bend these restrictions to become something even stronger than ever imagined? Up against the very dangerous media-game of Jon’s Haarpsichord ‘Convenience Shop’, where will the metal man run?
In a world before the Most Wanted List, E.T.F.’s Foodcoats still runs wild and free. Between sports team endorsements (go Outlaws, go!), and a lucrative line of bioroid ‘companions’, the diligent minds at Haas-Bioroid have their many fingers in even more profitable pies. Can the engineering powerhouse stand up against the child prodigy Chaos Theory, as she flexes her mind and skills to produce a near Criminal income?
Deep inside the lunar power plant, a security console jumps to life. “Code red threat,” it warns, “Security protocols under attack!” Ms. Diego cracks a slow smile, “Red? Looks like our old friend is walking free once again.” Simone calmly sets down her warm mug of YucaBean and fires up the main power display. “All generators at full power!” she orders into the comms unit, “Initiate the security AIs!” Simone leans back at her security station as the entire complex begins to emit a soft and soothing hum, “It’s about time the Queen learned the true meaning of ‘Unlimited Power’.”
Winter Kit season is upon us, as the runners and corps of Montréal prepare their finest (and ‘funnest’), as they battle for shiny new Corroders and a gorgeous punk rock playmat! Game one brings Jerome’s incredibly brutal Valencia Vamp-Mill, as she twists the arm of my very own glaciery Blue Sun deck. With D4V1Ds and Blackmails at Val’s disposal, can the lunar power giant even protect themselves from her prying and investigative eyes?
The final game of BD Cosmos’ third summer kit has the Angel of Cayambe investigating the ever expanding servers of NBN’s broadcast center, the Near-Earth Hub. The pressure is on as Valencia sets up her network of public access terminals and unsuspecting patsies, in her attempt to establish the infamous and deadly ‘backwards connection’. Can the productive minds at NBN push out the news fast enough, or will they find their servers helplessly leaking invaluable information?
In the continuation of Montréal’s fascination with NBN’s new orbital network, Jerome throws his ‘Convenience Shop’ SYNC deck against Julien’s aggressive Noise. The two skilled players trade police chases with trashed cards and bleeding wallets, all in a mad rush to grab those breaking news stories. Hold on to your hats, because this is a fast one!
The third BD Cosmos Summer Kit of 2015 brings us our third match-up between our tried and true staple Shaper, Kate McCaffrey, and the influence flush financial branch of the Weyland Consortium, Titan Transnational. Will the hyper-aggressive expansions of our Titans in teal be any match for the unrivaled economy and multi-access of the tenacious Shaper? Anything worth doing is worth doing three times.
