Power Points: 7

DESCRIPTION


With this power, you take over a network and establish yourself as sole admin.

To do so, you use your Spellcraft skill vs the network’s Reboot Defense Bonus (RDB). You need not reduce the firewall to 0 as this power penetrates any defenses and immediately sets you as admin upon completion.

Like with the Hijack Program, you can roll multiple times to achieve the higher RDB scores. Each time you do counts against that network’s firewall’s reboot time (1-5 rounds). However, unlike with a Hijack Program, or several hackers with a Hijack Program, you must go it alone.

Augment: For every additional 7 power points you spend, you are considered “hydra’d” or you have multiple instances. Thus you can roll vs the RDB multiple times as if several hackers were working in concert with Hijack Programs. Each 7 points is an additional instance.
