I've seen a big boy deck go down to a deck that used money stealers (ice
queen & sticky fingers) and elite security mage and other pumper challenges.
Squatter and Highbrow provided card drawing and recycling. Mr Johnson
provided the right runners. The idea was to stall for time until you got the
following team Fastjack(to arrange the challenges), Drake(good skills),
Reaper(good skills), Marek (not bad skills, pumpable), Tinkerbell(good
skills), Hawkwind(good skills, biotech), Tempest(good overall character,
good skills). Gear included invisibility, bulldog van and Maglock Passkey.
Specials include wanted(take out rockers), Rush job, Nerps!, cyber psychosis
and Infected chrome. Stingers include blindsided , FM, Just a rumor,
Lofwyr's schemes and LotI. Can't remeber the challenges.....
