Old player, new edition

Hello community. An old player here looking to pick up the new edition. While I visit the forums often (couple times a week), it's been several years since my game group played regularly. We played a couple games today with the previous rules and I think it's rekindled the group's interest and are ready to pick up the new rules. While I do visit the forums often, I haven't really kept up with the rule changes, bugs, weird rule interaction type stuff. So...

Where to start? How are the pdf rules concerning any erratas that may be needed to the 1st print of the rulebook? Anything make it through proofreading that needs to be addressed? How about cards? Should I wait until they are available to download and print or just pick up the factions that we need from the store? I guess I'm just looking at advice on the state of the new edition, the best way to jump back in and anything that may cause us trouble.

Any idea when the profile cards for the armies that are sold out will be back in stock?

Unsure on cards myself, but I get by fine with the PDF concerning the rules. And the new wiki helps alot :)

Anyone have links handy to the pdf rules and cards stuff? I saw it months ago but I can't find them now. Though to be fair, I'm on mobile

The first is the Wiki. You can See all the cards there. The second one are The rules download (risen Sun)

I found the rules but still couldn't fing the cards so thanks for the wiki link. Can you download and print from there? I haven't dug into it yet.

So where can I find a printable version of the cards? I can't seem to get them from the wiki link posted above. I've got the rules but can't find a printable version of the cards. Any help?

There's no compiled PDF of profile cards. You can either save the images from the wiki to a computer and print them from there, or buy the replacement deck.

Ah got ya. With cards to print for 7 factions plus the regular enhancement cards, I guess I'll wait until everything is in stock and order it all at once. Thanks for the help.

Yeah, that's going to add up in time or money!

So I've read through the new rules, 95% or more is still the game I dig but I've got a couple questions... Why cut 3/4s of the scenarios out? The VIM ones were our groups favorite. Has anyone from GCT commented on this?

2nd question, what happened to the "campaign mode" that was talked about at one time? I was actually looking forward to that the most with the new edition.

Maybe these things are actually in the printed rulebook but I only read through the pdf rules. Anyone have any insight?

The scenarios are currently being reviewed. There is a tournament book in the making.

About campaign Mode I cannot say anything.

If you're on FB, the playtest scenarios are in the files section.
I think part of the decision must have been to aim the rulebook at accessibility, saving the more complicated scenarios for the additional book.
I believe campaign is still being worked on, but everyone is part time, so these things can take a while.

I don't do the social media stuff so would explain why I'm in the dark... Right on, I'll pick up everything else needed to get started and hope the other things see the light of day eventually. Thanks.

I put my order in for 6 faction decks. Just need to print the Prefecture of Ryu cards and the generic enhancement cards. Looking forward to playing with the new rules.

Here's the latest file from the FB group. It has moved on from there, but this is the latest public version, I believe.

So it's been a week since I've put my order in for the 6 faction decks our group needs and I've not gotten any shipping date or tracking info, don't even know if my order has shipped yet. Then today I check the store and notice the Ito cards are out of stock. They were in stock when I put my order in, hoping i get them.
