I feel that the chance of getting 3 armor peircing damage would keep
me from using this card at all unless I the game depended on me
getting some card out in play. I do not have the card Shadowland but
from what the spoiler says below.

"Matrix. Hermit Deckers may visit this location. Roll D6 for each
visiting Runner. On 4-6, place an Info token on the Runner. This token
may be used during a shadowrun when this Runner is present. To use the
Info token, roll D6; on 4+, the shadowrunning player may look at the
next Challenge before choosing whether or not to continue the run."

Form what the rules (page 54. last part under USE CARDS before PLAY
SPECIAL CARDS) say and what this card says you could abuse this card
by having your deckers visit 30 times and gain, lets say 15 info
tokens to use each. This is the card I would ask the Netrep's view on.
Maybe the spoiler missed something that is on the card, can anyone
verify for me that the above text is on the card?
