Rebellion Without Rehearsal

It wasn’t fair, but it had never been fair. Not even for a moment. Mercury would spend the rest of their life grappling with their actions. But now, for the first time, they were free to determine how.

Rebellion Without Rehearsal is the second half of the Liberation Cycle. It concludes the story began in The Automata Initiative, in which the passage of a law set to strip bioroids of personhood caused uproar throughout Brazil. As the protests turn violent, and only the President’s signature is needed for this law to be enacted, the activists striving to protect bioroid rights make unlikely alliances and decide how far they’re willing to go.

Rebellion Without Rehearsal contains full playsets of 65 new Netrunner cards, including three identities.

Not sure which storefront to pick? Check out NSG’s handy Purchase Guide for a rundown of the options.

Note: Due to card back differences between our products, as well as due to different color matching between our different printing partners, these cards should be used in opaque sleeves.

Our shop can currently serve customers in the United States of America, Canada, Australia, and all 27 countries in the European Union. We are gradually expanding to new regions (we hope to add the United Kingdom to this list soon), so please check back again if your country is not served.

Cards sold through our online shop are MPC 330gsm stock, or equivalent weight and quality from one of the other printers we work with, and come in a cardboard tuckbox. Prices include free shipping. All cards are shipped from within the region they serve, so they will not incur import charges or VAT.

Our shop also has a retailer portal, where games stores can place wholesale orders of our cards. Feel free to point your Friendly Local Games Store towards it!

(Note: if the store does not automatically redirect you to the correct localized version, you can select your country and currency from the drop-down menu at the foot of the page.)

Pay what you’d like and print on your own printer! This file contains full-color art of card faces, with no bleed or card backs. Cut them out with scissors and put them in sleeves!

After downloading the files, if you’d like to say thanks, you can donate to Null Signal Games either via PayPal or our Patreon.

The MakePlayingCards Standard quality is slightly thinner than classic FFG cards. Shipping is generally more affordable than DriveThruCards for customers outside the United States. For more details, see our Purchase Guide.

The MakePlayingCards Premium quality is slightly thicker than classic FFG cards. Shipping is generally more affordable than DriveThruCards for customers outside the United States. For more details, see our Purchase Guide.

DriveThruCards provides us more revenue than other print-on-demand options, allowing us to continue our work. Card stock weight and thickness is somewhere in between the MakePlayingCards standard and premium options. Shipping can be expensive for customers outside the United States, and may incur import duties.

Our authorized resellers include online retailers and brick-and-mortar games stores who stock our cards. Please see our Purchase Guide for the full list. New resellers are added all the time, so please check back! To stock our cards, please visit the Retailer Portal of our online store, or encourage your FLGS to do so.

Additionally, longstanding community members and local groups often organize bulk buys from MakePlayingCards to bring the cost of the product down for their local players. We encourage you to ask players in your area if a bulk buy is being organized.
