Help with ordering aCe Feb 15, 2008 8:18:00 GMT -5

If I buy the digital sets, do I have to have a subscription to the gametable to use the cards. Or are they still viewable in a way that would facilitate playing with them, while using real dice. That doesn't sound like it would be feasible.
Just in case, how much do the individual cards run for? And can I specially order just certain cards from HQ? I think I might get all the SE's, so I'm wondering about the normal individual cards.
And Avarice, I really dig the description you gave me! And boy am I kicking myself for waiting this long. I've always been interested in the aCe, but there was such a long period of time where I didn't know if I was ever going to play CotG again, that buying the sets was never really a possibility.
As always, thanks in advance to anyone who helps me out here, it is GREATLY appreciated!
Osk can correct me if I'm wrong, but if you buy the digital cards, you can buy JUST the card set, and print them... you don't HAVE to also subcribe to the game table and whatnot... the upside of that is you'll get the tweaks that were done, and you'll get to see the art in color, as well as having access to the GWF files entries done online. The down side being you have to print them out yourself. What that gets you online is access to look at the set you've purchased in the gallery, and thats it... you'd only have demo privleges for stat tracker (which I think means you can look at stuff, but not enter anything or use the simulator) and the game table (IIRC, there are 4 guys you can use there....but it might just be Encubus and Bloodline)
As someone who got the cards when the aCe pack was available, some comments if you go that route:
If you're looking to buy the single cards, you can defintaely do without the original Ventross and Aegis cards.. both SEs are minor stat changes (Ventross gets a downgrade, while Aegis' is pretty lateral.. maybe a slight upgrade, depending on how you look at it)
For Godsend, you can just no use his special power until the story warrants it... the card isn't that different.
Murdok's SE is defiantely fine... the stat changes are minor, and the art rocks anyway
Tek you REALLY need the older card for 2119... using his update kinda hurts your head.
You could even get away with using Lance's 2092 card... the moves are different, but its pretty similar strength wise.. though the artist is such a different style it might be a bit jarring.
Painmasters aCe card is massively different, so you'll want that one.
Rouser, Grovel and Cremator you pretty much need their older cards... the don't have an aCe one.
