For Reina, the most “criminal” of anarchs, I came up with a criminal-ish console. It’s kind of like an inverse Doppelganger, but that would be an unimaginative name.
Anarch - Hardware - Console - 2 Inf
The first time each turn a subroutine that causes the run to end fires on the innermost piece of ICE during a run, you may immediately make a run on another server. Bypass any ICE that shares the subtype sentry,_ barrier_, or_ code gate_ with the ICE which ended the previous run.
Explanation: if you get bounced off an innermost ice during a run, you get to make another run, bypassing ICE that shares the main subtype. The clumsy “a subroutine that causes the run to end” wording is to avoid the Endless Hunger problem, because pure ETR isn’t that common in this game anymore. This way it fires if the corp chooses to ETR with the 3rd sub of a FC3 as well, or by failing a Resistor trace, etc.
I originally had “bypass any ICE that shares a subtype with…” before realising that this would completely hose any corp that had lots of bioroid ice, or lots of tracer ice, or lots of AP ice. So pretty much 80% of corps. I then thought about making it “all subtypes” but that would make it far too restrictive.
The name is apparently an ancient Indian word for “promotion”, which I chose because it reminds me of the ability: your pawn gets to the first row of your opponent’s side of the board, is promoted to a queen, and gets to move in any direction. But I’m not crazy about the name because names of moves or gambits tend to be used for Reina events, so it feels wrong to name a piece of hardware after a move. Names of chess pieces for her programs so that’s out too. Her previous console’s name was a riff on Deep Blue, so maybe the name of another chess-playing computer would work.
