Well, here's a few more questions on the same vein. Anyone want to wager a
guess about the awnsers? Should I send these to "Scuzzies" email address
specifically? I am just mailing the generic fasa account right now. Thanks

> Alright, here is a couple questions about Deckers.
> 1. A decker counts for being on a run (agaist the maximum of 6 runners),
> but is not present and may not be targeted by challenges, correct?
> 2. If a decker is assisting a run in the about way, is his group hampered
> by his "anti-social" skill (if of course the runner in question has said
> skill)? Is he present on the run (the key words in the description of the
> anti-social skill)?
> 3. Slight timing question. According to the rulebook, if two people want
> play cards at the same time, the person whose turn it is goes first. My
> friend has a decker, which I believe states "Turn to steal 1 nuyen from
> your opponent, yadda yadda yadda". Anyways, during my friends turn, he
> decides to go on a run (without this runner), and I have just enough
> to play Green Apple Quickstep, and I declare to play it. He then responds
> by turning his decker, and saying "Alright, I will take one of your
> you can no longer play the card, and it is discards". Is this really what
> happens? We are REALLY confused on this one. Can you respond or back up
> action? Can cards "fizzle" if you no longer can pay the cost?
> Well, thanks for your time!!!!
