Netrunner Origins


#1

After digging through NetrunnerOnline the other night, I realized how many cards are direct or nearly direct ports from the original game. Having no experience with Garfield’s original, I had no idea. I thought it may be fun to show those here. I am only going to post a couple to start us off, but I will continue updating. As far as I figure, Netrunner may be the best place to look to anticipate future cards, as well!

This is one of the more indirect translations, but I think it’s safe to say Dahlia was the inspiration for Femme.

Looking at the Netrunner card list has made me want to play that, too!

Is there a more elegant way to format these posts? Is there a hide feature on these forums?

There are a lot of direct ports too that are exactly the same. Scorched Earth for example. Shattered Remains is the most recent.


#3

This one never fails to amuse me. The type, cost, and strength changed, oh, and it went from being a big metal box to a literal god:


#4

oh, I like Dumpster so much more!

Speaking of direct reprints.

There was also Scatter Shot, which was basically Poltergeist, but only for upgrades.

Here’s a reprint we all know and love, but holy cow, that art is terrible.


#6

Interesting that the old SMC was substantially worse. I wouldn’t have expected that, given the general power level of many old Netrunner cards.


#7

God, the art in Netrunner was so bad.


#8

The art was overall of a lower quality, but most of it is just stylistic preference.


#9

I played ONR and still have a ton of cards and my decks. Earlier this year I took them with me to FFG and player a bunch of games with Lukas, which was a ton of fun. My main Runner deck was a Clown - Lockjaw - Microtech Backup Drive recursion deck that was kind of ridiculous.

I’m always happy to see familiar cards showing up in ANR, although I’m a little sad that the old art for Imp won’t reappear. I loved that art.


#10

Susanoo-no-Mikoto is more expensive, but her ability is so much nicer (since it can force an access).

…honestly, I’m just waiting for “I Got a Rock” to be reprinted. Best card, hands down. :stuck_out_tongue:


#11

for those that don’t know

relatively safe to say it won’t be directly reprinted, but a damage card that sacrificed agenda points would be okay in my book. it is interesting in that it is a Node (Asset) and not an Operation.

okay, shell traders… that’s just unforgivable art
@stoppableforce did you use some sort of resize function to make the Netrunner images the same size as the ANR images?


#12

Nope! I just downloaded them from the site that you linked up top. I did make sure to get the full-sized version by clicking on the picture first, though.


#13

If you had Bryce 3d and Poser in the 90s you could make a lot of netrunner art in about an hour. However, rendering it would take overnight. Well, it did on my old p100 32gb of ram.


#14

ah, cool. i have just been right clicking -> copy image location.

here are some cards I’d like to see in ANR

The one I want to see is Loan from Chiba. I’m not going to grab the image from my phone, though.

When we were playing ONR, I asked Lukas if we were going to see hidden resources in ANR - resources that the Runner installs face down and then trashes for some effect in a paid ability window. He said no, he didn’t want to make that kind of drastic change to the game’s information asymmetry.

#17

where’s that quote from? certainly not how the final version of Crypsis plays in ANR!

were you referring to Loan with the ‘hidden resource’ thing? cause I haven’t seen any cards in original Netrunner that were hidden resources


#18

No, LfC is a normal resource, it’s just one of my favorite cards. Hidden resources appeared in the Proteus expansion, v2.1.


#19

Favorite Corp card: Schlaghund. I had a certain preferred style. :wink:


#20

I remembered a BGG thread where I learned that the original concept for crypsis was different: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1179603/did-ffg-ever-changed-spoiled-cards

Did some googling and discovered that, even in the current rulebook, in the “sample play area” picture, there’s an older crypsis wording (pdf rulebook only - my dead tree rulebook has the new wording).
