The sky above the port was the colour of a truita de patates, left on a plate for too long.
“It’s not like I’m no longer playing”, X heard someone say, as they shouldered their way through the crowd around a fruit stand in La Boqueria. “It’s like my mind’s developed this massive ruse deficiency”. It was a Netrunner voice and a Netrunner joke. La Boqueria was still a place mostly for tourists; you could roam around here for a weekend and never hear a word in Catalan.
Rita was tending the bar, her flashy neon dreadlocks swaying gently as she filled a tray with assorted tapas. She saw X and frowned, her independentist face tattoos turning into a fearful mask for a second.
X found a place at the bar, between the laser-precision tan of a Russian wielding a PadCam and the sweaty Hawaiian shirt of a tall Moroccan whose vantablack forearms looked military-grade.
“Messy was in here early, with two kickmurder pendejos”, Rita said, shoving a cassoleta brimming with bravas towards the Russian. “Maybe some business with you, X?”
X shrugged. The Moroccan to their right squinted dangerously at them and flexed his armoured digits.
Rita’s frown deepened. Her tapas were the stuff of legend. In an age of mass-manufactured nutrition, there was something heroic about her dedication to getting the taste right with real ingredients. Her dreadlocks swung around heavily as she reached for a portion of mejillones en escabeche. She always programmed her hair to be easily recognized at the rave parties she frequented - but for work, she kept them in casual mode.
“You are too much the player, X”, Rita snarled; apparently she still couldn’t forget the vermut they spilled the other day. She pulled her hair back from her face before the styling algorithm could kick in. “You are the player of the slightly dead game.”
“Sure,” X said, biting on their first brava of the day. “Somebody’s gotta play around here. Sure the collons isn’t going to be you.”

Free event, pre-registration not necessary (but encouraged)
Sign your team up here, with a team name and the names of the team members.
Side Event Rules: Two-person teams. Each member of the team brings one Runner and one Corp deck. Both Runners and both Corps have to be from the SAME faction, but the identities have to be DIFFERENT.
For example, an Anarch-HB team will have 2 different Anarch IDs and 2 different HB IDs.
In addition to this, each individual card can only be used as many times as it is legally allowed to be in ONE deck when counting cards across BOTH decks (so, up to 1 copy of "limited" cards, up to 3 copies of "standard" cards, and up to 6 of "special" cards across BOTH decks).
For example, if one player uses a copy of Rebirth, the other can not use it at all; if one player uses 2 copies of Paperclip, the other can only use up to 1; if one player uses 4 copies of Spy Camera, the other can only use up to 2, etc.
Latest MWL, errata and standard rotation are all in effect.
Decklists will be collected before the start of the tournament.
