I always wanted to give the players options to attack against each other. A good attack is versatile, makes an impact, but does not ruin the game from any of the players. These two dynamic Events were crafted according to these principles. They do not just take away from the target. They give something else back.
As a nice side effect. Both of these cards can be used to gain influence in addition of stealing Assets. And they can be used for Asset bartering…
Rat Race is the Agent variant of these cards. It’s original title was Career move. The new title fits the game theme perfectly. Closed Alpha and Beta players might recognize the card image. which helped us to define the graphic look of the VEIL in the early days of game development.
Power Vacuum is the more powerful of the duo. And thus its effects are limited by the “with no agents” clause.
