So, any thoughts on what this card might be? It was pictured in a news post, but this is the only other reference on the internet I can find to the card.

Seems to be a corp card, otherwise why cover up? There's a refinery, so probably GRNDL related. Blood and a bullet: meat damage?

Otherwise the color tone is criminal; and we know criminals love shooting people. Maybe they cover up something for the corps in exchange for money?

Wanted to share the full art and just curious as to what this is. The image was spoiled at about the same time as black guard, so I don't think it'd be completely wrong to assume some parity of power level.

Vulcan = volcanoes, fire. Seems to relate to geothermal fracking and GRNDL, I agree. Could be Weyland or Criminal. I feel flavor wise cover ups would involve trashing assets. Either as a boon for the Corp (trash X asset, do Y event), or for the criminal (make a run on a remote, if you successfully trash an asset on this run, do X)


In any case, I love the art!

Before he got tagged again, ANRSpin mentioned it was an Agenda that had something to do with dealing meat damage, but he couldn't recall if it was Weyland or neutral.

EDIT: I just noticed what's on the monitor. The hit's doing research on GRNDL. Definitely a Weyland card.

Maaaybe it's some sort of Weyland version of Fetal AI?

Besides the art looks a w e s o m e on a playmat. Unfortunately it's only on the 2013 World Champion mat :)

For fluff reasons, I'd hate it if it was meat damage:

You take a bullet to your head. Be careful, two more and you're dead!

Some BP removal (coverup?) or connection-resource trashing on the other hand... :)

Or both ?


Vulcan Coverup
Type: Operation: Double - Gray Ops
Cost: 1
Faction: Corp Weyland
Influence Value: 3

As an additional cost to play this operation, spend [Click].
Play only if the runner is tagged.

Trash a connection resource: You may remove up to two bad publicity tokens.

It would be kinda OP if it did both. Although a murderous coverup would be a very Weyland way of dropping Bad Publicity =)

Way too OP, but that's exactly the kind of fluff I had in mind

I'm glad I'm not working in the design team then laugh

If anything, I feel this card is slighly UP, if you compare it to Freelancer, or SE or even just [click], 2c: trash a resource. To claim a slot in a deck a card has to be pretty strong anyway.

It is pretty hard to balance cards... kudo to FFG so far !

I looked through more of Adam's Art, and found the rest of Cell Portal:



Once upon a time the card was called Cellular Gate. Aesop's pawnshop is also there with full art if you move through his files, but I think they kept all of that one.

I disagree. Since the Haiku's proposed card requires the Runner to be tagged, the fact that itHaiku's proposed card is a double has FAR more implications than it does normally.

Edited for clarity.

Maybe its an agenda that if the runner steals it they take some meat damage, perhaps requiring a trace first?

3/1 Weyland that you score to remove 1 BP. Over advancing does 1 meat damage per over-advance?

If the monitor is a hologram, why is it cracked and bullet-holed? if it is solid matter, like glass, how is that piece at the 12 o'clock position still there, as it is a perfectly cut triangle that should have broken away. laugh

3/1 Agenda, when you score it deal one meat? Seems like the simplest solution.

Based on the name and the picture, I wonder if it'll be something playing with expose effects. Something like:

Whenever the runner exposes one or more cards, deal 1 meat damage.

Maybe a 4/2 agenda or an asset or something?

edit: Read the thread.

I would take sleeves with that OP art.

Wait, wrong thread? Bah. A playmat then.

Still wrong? Darn it, just give me products with that art on it!

Deck boxes! FFG I throw you money and you walk away like that time with that girl in college which was just a big misunderstanding wrong-place-at-wrong-time kinda thing!

I wouldn't be surprised if we see it on a playmat in the near future. Maybe game night 4? Or regionals?
