Custom Decks to make life easier! Jun.26.04

This is what I use when I slap together NPC deckers. I threw them up here for you players who want to run a decker, but can't be bothered with buildinga deck from scratch. I have played several deckers using these templates (including Teh L33T, which was hilarious). I present them here, along with build point guidlines for your use. I have higher rating decks in my list, but they won't be much good, as they are all over a million nuyen.

Teh L33T, Cost: 33,041¥
MPCP 4

Teh L33T is the deck built by deckers, for people they want to get arrested. The only thing that stops this deck from getting people killed, is that it usually fails to even log on to a red host, let alone get deep enough in to be fried by black IC.

The Starter Deck , Cost: 69,860 ¥
MPCP 5

The Starter Deck is a solid tool for a non-decker who just wants to be able to setup secure com-calls and deck low level blue/green hosts.

Silicon Special , Cost: 168,540 ¥
MPCP 6

The Silicon Special is the first of the "proper" decks. While it doesn't look very powerful, it can do great things on a low orange host.

The Respectable Deck , Cost: 277,930 ¥
MPCP 7

The Respectable Deck can tackle some of the weaker red hosts, and tears greens to pieces. I find it, or The Sword to be the best for new characters. Even a resources B character can handle himself just fine with this deck.

The Sword , Cost: 451,663¥
MPCP 8

The Sword is a formidable deck, and recommended for any resources A starting character. Satelite Dish sold seperately. The first proper "Combat Deck".

The Power Player, Cost:651,240¥
MPCP 9

The Power Player is the most deck a new character will want. While it is very powerful, spending more on a deck will leave you with very little for programs.

Big Spender, Cost:890,760¥
MPCP 10

The Big Spender is impractical at best, buying it would leave you with no money for programs. I just wanted to see if I could bring an MPCP-10 deck in under a million.
