    Does Privileged Access’s threat ability replace the ability to install a resource?

    No. The threat ability allows the Runner to install 1 program from their heap in addition to 1 resource.

  • Updated 2024-05-25

    Can the Runner choose the order in which they install a program and a resource with Privileged Access when the threat level is at least 3?

    Yes. Both abilities meet their trigger condition at the same time, so the Runner can choose the order that they resolve in.

  • Updated 2024-05-25

    The Runner plays Privileged Access, making a run on Archives. If the Corp rezzes Ping, giving the runner 1 tag and ending the run, can the Runner install cards using Privileged Access?

    No. The abilities that allow the Runner to install cards from their heap only meet their trigger conditions when they take a tag from Privileged Access, not from other sources.

Reviews

Sometimes we write flavour text for a card before we know if there will be space for it or not. This is one such card, so here I present the flavour text for posterity:

"How was your shopping trip, Eru?" - Sebastião Souza Pessoa

(Rebellion Without Rehearsal era)
367

When I pitched this flavour text, I was thinking of powerful husband-and-wife duos from fiction, to echo Seb and Eru's partnership. My mind went to Aral and Cordelia Vorkosigan, a couple who bend the destiny of multiple planets for the better.

(In particular, a climactic "shopping trip" in the novel Barrayar)

Strong flavor text and reference, I love it <3

@Anzekay Is Eru on the art of this card?

@ChiptheRipper yep
