Neato, thanks for the update!
Hey there Mantriel!
First up, thanks for caring enough to have TEN questions!
Secondly, the Board have been in their roles for only a day now and while everyone involves has opinions on this we still have to run our plans and thoughts past each other to get a good idea about exactly where we’re going with the future - most of your questions touch on multiple sections of NISEI at once, so we have to make sure everyone in on the same page.
What I can tell you is:
- There will be announcements soon regarding some of your questions once the discussions finish
- Our target audience is everyone from the two kids who play once a month on the floor of their mum’s basement to people who make the cut at big events like Worlds.
Watch this space!
Question! Do I have to have my staff tag removed? single tear
Now that there is an assigned creative director, my most pressing question:
Are dogs alive in the Android universe? I may be wrong, but I think so far we’ve only seen cyberdogs and robodogs.
@Tamijo better make sure you apply for some roles then matey
@Sanjay My answer isn’t canon, but I’d always assumed they were. How else would you get a cyberdog? Maybe a new ID is in order… he can play Fetch with agendas.
Where else would DJ Fenris get canine genetic modifications?
I can give you a custom “Nisemono Staff” (= japanese for fake/counterfeit) title instead.
We’ve gotten a few new questions in the box since announcing the staff The various members of the board are typing up some answers, but this one I’ve got handled.
Will there be enough support for the game in europe from NISEI?
A: NISEI doesn’t stand for Netrunner International Support and Expansion Initiative for nothing There will be no shortage of events in Europe or anywhere else in the world.
We here in Chicago were originally going to have a release event for R&R, before the drama of the end of Netrunner kicked in, with a structure incentivizing R&R deckbuilding. At this point, we will probably still do an event, in late October/early November. It can’t be part of the 2019 tournament season, but would OP like to be involved at all?
Unfortunately our current timetable for prize support production may leave us scrambling to get a Game Night Kit into your hands depending on the exact date. However, we will be happy to help if we can! PM me on Slack (@icecoldjazz) and we can discuss details. We’d love to hear about whatever format you decide to run and how it works out for you as well!
Look, you all knew what you were getting with me.
Of course there are.
