Red Screen of Death
Tegan sauntered slowly back to her terminal after spending a few minutes in the break lounge chatting with Yvonne from accounts. Arjun’s eyes followed Tegan as she walked, and Tegan covered her smile with another sip from her cup of overly sweetened soy-caf. Arjun was tres cute.
An analytical specialist in the main New Angeles headquarters for NBN, Tegan didn’t actually have that much work to do. The algorithms that ran through her terminal tied into all of the city’s surveillance hardware, and they did a better job of collating the near-infinite data that streamed in than any human brain could have.
Tegan’s job was to monitor for system exceptions and investigate them whenever they flared up, and in the wake of the Flashpoint incident, NBN servers had never been more secure. She sat down and pulled out her PAD, swiping into a mindless game with bright colours and moving targets.
“Uh, Tegan. Should that be happening?” Arjun asked, standing over her should and pointing towards her terminal.
Looking up from her PAD, Tegan started to form a teasing barb, but then she glanced at her screen.
The whole thing had gone mauve.
There were lines of movement scrolling across from left to right. Leaning in, Tegan could barely make out strings of zeroes and ones in an apparently random sequence treading across her screen.
“That’s new,” Tegan said, dumbfounded.
“Should we call tech support?” Arjun suggested, and Tegan nodded, still transfixed by the screen.
Tegan tapped the tech support call button on the side of her terminal, but it didn’t seem to be responding either.
Then Arjun swore. Tegan looked over to his terminal and saw the same thing happening on his screen. Standing up, Tegan looked around the office.
All of the terminals were down.
Gotta Go Fast
Card draw effects on the corporation side are hard to figure. I mean, what sort of decks want to be flooded with cards all the time?
Well… fast NBN decks do. So let’s make an NEH-style fast deck, but with Net Analytics! That means CTM.
Trash my political assets, my Net Analytics, my SanSan, or my MVT, and you’ll be gifting me with a whole bunch of new cards. The ice is pretty straight forward, and the agenda suite is your standard Exchange of Information package.
There’s no kill and very little tag punishment. This deck lives and breathes on SanSan. Probably a fun deck if it comes together, but definitely sub optimal when compared with the actual oppressive CTM builds that are out there. I mean, this doesn’t even have Hard Hitting News in it!
