Online only, at least for now.
This is currently in discussion, we’ll let you know when a decision has been made.
Not at first, but I won’t rule it out.
The majority of the next rotation batch will happen on the release of NISEI-One (that’s not an official name, I just like that name because it sounds like a spaceship) but there will be a small amount of rotation happening alongside the switch to System Core 2019.
No, that’s not been on our radar. It’d involve a re-organisation of the existing colour pies, not to mention we’d have to drop a lot of new cards for it in the short term to make the compete with the existing factions. Even a new minifaction would have to work hard to keep up with it’s siblings, and they’re not exactly smashing tournaments.
Yes! We'll keep NRDB up to date, aiming to add new cards on to it the moment they're announced.
There’s an official Jnet rep on our super secret slack, to make this as seamless as possible.

Next year for the card previews – we don’t want to build up too much hype about it way before you get to play with them. As for the story aspect, we’ll start teasing that pretty soon. @BreakOneBarrier and I have been working out the most fun way to do it (and to give you a hint as to the format I want to drop it in, I’ve recently finished reading ‘Pattern Recogition’ by William Gibson…)
That’d be lovely, but no. We don’t have the money, and unless Bill Gates is secretly a fan, neither do we as a community.
This is also currently in discussion. If we can come up with enough stuff to give people value for their Patreon donations, then yes. The money could easily be used to pay for more art, extra prizes in kits, etc – but we don’t want to be asking for handouts and give you nothing in return. We also won’t be selling any prizes outside of the kits – if you want them, win them – and adamantly will not be doing anything that would give people an advantage at events in return for money. (do you think I emphasied that enough?)
Old FFG articles used to do weird random capitalisation of words, and the community decided it must have been the act of an enthusiastic intern who was dubbed “CAPS LOCK INTERN”.
It’s on the moon.
