Cell Portal has the following text:

The Runner approaches the outermost piece of ice protecting the attacked server. Derez Cell Portal.

What happens after the Runner passes the outermost piece of ice: does it

  1. Continue to the next ice after the outermost piece; or
  2. Continue to the next ice after Cell Portal?

When the subroutine on Cell Portal fires, the Runner must encounter all ice (again), starting from the outermost.

Just be careful with terminology; the run doesn't "restart" (i.e. no "start of run" effects are fired again), the Runner is just teleported back to the first piece of ice and must continue from there.

I would love to think this is the case; it seems reasonable and fit to the cost of Cell Portal. But how do you deduce that? – Aviad Ben Dov Jun 13 '13 at 18:15
