Attacks Against Programs (Anti-IC)


Protection programs are designed to ward off attacks on the Netrunner. On a successful defense roll, the attacking program is deflected and no damage is taken. For example, a successful defense with a Shield will stop a Hellhound from killing the Netrunner, but will have no effect on a Killer attacking a Netrunner's Liche. If the Hellhound is not eliminated, it will be able to attack again.

Anti-IC programs are used to attack other programs (such as Killers attacking Hellhounds). When a successful attack is made, the defending program loses a certain number of Strength points based on the program type. If the defending program's Strength is reduced to 0, it is "de-rezzed" (destroyed).
