The Strange Flesh Companion Deck (runner)

Zakalwe 473

This is a deck based on the novel Strange Flesh by Matthew Farrer published by Fantasy Flight Games.

Strange Flesh is a really interesting novel and I can strongly recommend it to any fans of Android Netrunner.

My write up does include a few plot points but I have tried to be careful to avoid spoiling the ending. The novel is structured as a series of flashbacks as Tallie Perrault is interviewed at NAPD headquarters by Detective Caprice Nisei.

WARNING Mild Spoilers Ahead!

Tallie Perrault an Investigative Journalist working for the Opticon Foundation is good at exposing corporate malfeasance in order to protect the interests of the general public.

One day she is approached by two concerned siblings looking to enlist her help in proving the complicity of Jinteki Corporation in the theft of breakthrough biotech developments from their family's co-op agroplex a decade and a half ago. Murder and extortion resulted in the dissolution of the agroplex but the trail has gone cold and it's up to Tallie's skills in forensic accounting and corporate law to find the answers!

With her eyes set on a Pulitzer Prize Tallie sets forth into an adventure unlike anything she has ever experienced.

The story begins at Levy University but visits a wide variety of locations such as the Gila Highlands Arcology, Broadcast Square, a Gene Conditioning Shoppe, Blue Sun Stadium, travelling upstalk to Midway Station and arrives at a riotous finale at the Humanity Labour Arcology.

Without wanting to spoil any of the novel, I'm loving some of the card includes :P no idea if this is even remotely playable, but you've nailed the book

Thank you very much guys! I'm planning to do the Free Fall novel next :-)

Free Fall is about Captain of Detectives Rick Harrison's investigations and co-stars a certain Lily Lockwell.

It's really cool that someone else has done this and that your deck is so different to mine! Have you played the decks against each other yet?

I've got a copy of Free Fall on the way to me, I'm excited to see how our decks for that differ.
