     –Breaker Bay Bulletin

Find your dorm, meet your roomie, boot up your PAD, and head to class. Breaker Bay is now available for Android: Netrunner!

The second Data Pack in the SanSan Cycle, Breaker Bay features a wealth of new resources, assets, programs, and events that explore the meat space and culture of one of the Americas' premier technological universities. As its sixty cards (three copies each of twenty individual cards) touch upon everything from the grungiest Dorm Computer (Breaker Bay, 24) to the most powerful programs available in London Library (Breaker Bay, 29), Breaker Bay offers a futuristic take on the collegiate lives of students like Hayley Kaplan (Breaker Bay, 25) and her peers.

It's not all studies and parties, though. The cost of tuition also means you'll need to think about Student Loans (Breaker Bay, 38) and how you can, someday, pay them back. Fortunately, the top UCBB students are always highly recruited, and you may have a future waiting for you with one of the world's top megacorps!

Career Day at Breaker Bay

It's a poorly kept secret that many of the UCBB students who attend the university's weekly, underground Hacktivist Meetings (Breaker Bay, 21) are just looking to learn and develop the skills that might help them draw the interest those corporate recruiters that might be willing to offer them fat paychecks for easy work as a sysop. After all, everyone knows that if you want to stop a runner, you have to learn how to think like one.

This is why megacorps like Jinteki are constantly sending staff on Recruiting Trips (Breaker Bay, 35) to Breaker Bay to meet with the university's top students. You never know when you might meet the next Bernice Mai (Humanity's Shadow, 97) or Midori (Future Proof, 113). A good sysop's talents can keep a runner guessing, and every corp's always on the lookout for some brilliant young student who may someday rival The Twins (Order and Chaos, 24).

Of course, such meetings aren't one-sided affairs. They can benefit the students plenty, too, and aspiring runners who attend Career Fairs (Breaker Bay, 23) may have an easier time making valuable connections in the future. Can that recruiter become an Inside Man (A Study in Static, 68)? Can you access his PAD during the meeting, leaving him a Compromised Employee (Trace Amount, 25)? Or will you simply use your Career Fair to make some Professional Contacts (Creation and Control, 49), which you may call upon for all manner of potential leads?
