    If you have problems with that, you're really going to hate it when Reign and Reverie show up. I bet it will end up being well over $100.

    Dstinct reacted to grk in Cultural Appropriation and Cybercrime   
    It's a shame that Zorajit was quickly identified as trolling, because there's a lot of interesting thought to be dug into here, even though Zorajit themselves thought just enough about what criminality means to get themselves into trouble.

    It's interesting to note that there are no corporation cards which indicate an independent state power. No cards which say, drop a line to the local police force to arrest a tagged runner. Note that I'm not claiming there are no manifestations of what we think of as state power in the cards, just no independent ones. Part of this is an artifact of how the game is played, but it is consistent with the archetypical cyberpunk world, in which state power is completely subsumed by (or "perfectly merged with" if you interpret it as fascist) corporate power.

    The end result is here is no power we would recognize as legitimate to condemn the actions of runners or corporations as illegal. When we discuss criminality, we must do it through the lens of the fictional hegemonic thought of netrunner's fictional world. Since the media is another facet of corporate control, it's easy to deduce that "criminal" merely means engages in behavior that corporations disapprove of. Note that when corporations do something "illegal" the response is not state power, but bad publicity tokens. As the corporations define illegal, the punishment for being found doing something illegal is merely a decrease in their perceived legitimacy.

    As a result, all runners are criminal as decreed by corporations (and the runner faction names are just the way hegemonic thought labels their criminality) but not criminal, as defined by us the players who shouldn't recognize the legitimacy of netrunner's corporations.

    Unless you are of the belief that corporations should be allowed to decree what is and is not illegal, but I'm not interested in conversing with literal facists, so **** you.

    You would draw 0 cards and lose a click. The only trigger for the card is the check to see if its the beginning of the turn. It doesn't check how many cards are in your stack to determine if it's triggering.

    The Architect is destroyed. Except for "can be advanced" on Ice, no text is active while the ice is unrezzed. Therefore the Architect is still capable of being trashed while unrezzed.
     
    As written, the corp cannot overinstall ice on a rezzed Architect either. Guess that's the price of having powerful ice.

    I'm not surprised. Once Jinteki.net went online using NDB's API, the writing was on the wall.
