    Is this in game collected or are these real world items I can buy outside of EU?

    If there is a real world purchase option to support Arkadia and NOT have 50% of that go to Midark Im all in

    Dylan, I'm sorry, I dont understand the purpose of the cards.
    Can't understand why some have a lot stars and others not.
    Can't understand why some held places, others mobs, others items.
    Can't understand why there is the name Alpha Core.
    I never collected cards and dont know anything about it, maybe you could explain a little?

    If you ask me if they are pretty, yes they are.
    Some of the mobs / items are not so well placed in the cards. By example the nusul is a bit to high placed, would not place it so near the top border. The magurg, one tentacle is cut on the right border, would place it a bit more left maybe. Arkadia storyline a bit more down too... ...
    The words (example Navi) are a bit hard to read, maybe make the background light a bit more dark.
    All in all the grey background on the mob cards makes them a bit colorless, not so sparkling nice. It's a lot better on the Sal'diresh and the Arkadian logo. Tryed with the Arkadian logo background for the mobs? Or is it to dark?

    Sorry ;) you asked.

    Okay , to shed light on the questions asked.

    Questions : What are the stars on the cards?

    The stars are to indicate how rare a card is. 1 star being common and 6 stars being rare.

    Questions : Images / Items / Mobs, what do they mean?

    These are allocated to the card and design for each. There are many categories, it is just the pane at what is shared in that edition.

    Question : What does Alpha Core Mean?

    This is the edition of the card collection. There will be more to added in the future, each bringing with it a new opportunity.

    These card are a collectible, We will offer certain rewards if you collect them all, Sometime there might be trade for certain cards and finding the right combination and handing them in, might present a special item or give you the opportunity to participate in something.

    Who knows, there is so much to say, but you will have to wait for the update :)

    Hope this answers your questions.

    Hi Dylan and thanks for making things clearer.

    Two more questions for you:
    1. Will these cards clog up my inventory or will there be some sort of bp type book for them (and are they stackable - oh, and lootable)?

    and

    2. You didn't answer Cyborg Bill's question about whether these are real world or ingame purchases.

    Will the cards be tradable?

    (seems to be so but given how many untradable items have been there I'd rather ask outright :))

    These cards will be stackable and lootable. There is no book for them atm, but I can tell you we are working to create one as this collection will be one of MANY.

    Regarding Cyborg Bill's question about being a Real Life item. Yes, there will be real life sets available.


    Yes, you will be able to trade them. They are a Trading Card Collection after all ;)

    Is those cards (and books later) lootable in PvP? In other words will it be save to carry them around in space. If yes, will they keep lootable status inside book as well?
    I'm asking since it stackable.

    Maybe it's a bit offtopic, but why almost one week delay from mail list to forum post? :)
    IMHO it would be a good idea to post all mail list content on forum (maybe news subforum in Arkadia news section) at the same time as well, so those who don't subscribed to it will news at the same time and also all could discuss it?

    We plan on archiving all the newsletters on the forum once we have all the bridges sorted out, then Arkadia Forum is going to be a well of information.

    But to answer your question, they are lootable at the moment.

    Where do I get these?

    I want them now... been asking for this since '05.

    Will the rare ones be super rare? Do I need to sell my Ford to make sure I'll afford to get them all?

    Are these in any way related to the compet app or not?

    if there are real life cards, do you get a rl one by buying the in game one from a terminal? Also, does having a card give you a combat pet (comepet) associated with the card?

    1 . These cards have nothing to do with Compet Deeds.
    2. No, by obtaining them, you will not get a RL card. There are things to do to obtain the Real Set.
    3. These cards are being released in the new update.

    Think of it like this, if you obtain the whole collection, there will be a trade offer made on the forum. So pay close attention.
