I’ve talked about how I’ve built certain themes, certain affinities, into the cards of System Crash. Last time, I introduced the MetroSec cards, the representatives of what passes for Law and Order in the world of System Crash. Security contractors tasked with keeping the peace by the Megacorps.
This week we take a look at the Criminal Underworld.
Crime is a fact of life in the city of San Angeles. Street gangs prowl the darkened alleyways, cartels smuggle illicit cybernetics and bioware to a thriving black market, and the Yakuza launder money through their front corporations. The criminals of SanAn are dangerous enemies and powerful allies.
Criminal cards in System Crash are often stronger than comparable Agents, for their cost. But that power comes at a price. Criminal agents will frequently exact an additional cost as you bring them into play, beyond the standard Credit cost.
The question then, is whether the risk is worth the reward.
