Update 30: RED AEGIS July Update · RED AEGIS Roleplaying Game

The RED AEGIS July Update provides a gameplay example and showcases new art by Kerem Beyit.

kickstarter.com Gameplay: Several playtesters have noted that RED AEGIS plays like a curious fusion between a traditional tabletop roleplaying game (e.g. Dungeons & Dragons) and a 4X turn-based strategy game (e.g. Sid Meier's Civilization). This is indeed our intended goal, but for many of you it has been diffi…

[05/15/14]   [Matt] ...hmmm... I'll show the cover art for the book earlier if we can get 1000 likes on this page. Otherwise, we'll show it at Gen Con (SEM1454739).

[05/14/14]   [Matt] Come to our seminar at Gen Con to see the official Red Aegis RPG sourcebook cover art (and more!!!). Exclusive giveaways as well. More to follow.

[05/08/14]   One of our artists turned over some 'sketches.' Yeah right! These pieces are amazing. If we can get 10 shares and 25 likes, we will share one of them with you all.

[04/16/14]   Our latest beta packet went out late last night!

[03/22/14]   We just notified our $1,000+ backers to send us an image they would like our artists to use when creating important characters in our game world. Things are truly ramping up!

[03/09/14]   Final book outline, freelancer contracts, playtesting updates, and more. It's been a productive week at Vorpal Games. We want to thank everyone that has provided feedback thus far! Keep an eye out next week for the next playtest document.

[03/06/14]   The wonderful and talented Erik Nowak is our design layout guru and also a kick-butt graphics guy in the industry. We asked him to create a clan record sheet for you to use. It has some outdated information on it, so I wanted have it updated first and we'll include it in the next beta release.

[03/06/14]   Some big updates in the next beta playtest packets. You'll see more of the roleplaying precepts that were not included in the first.

[03/03/14]   RELEASE THE KRAKEN! Vorpal Games is pleased to announce that the beta playtest for Kickstarter backers has been sent out.

[03/02/14]   A lot of alpha feedback has been positive in regards to the analog to Sid Meier’s Civilization. What an honor. We can't wait to see what our Kickstarter backers think once beta is released tomorrow morning.

[03/01/14]   We're a week behind on Beta release. Fear not. It will be in your lovely hands by Monday morning. I needed to rework some areas, add clarifications, and get some other things out of the way. Thanks for your patience! (-Matt)

[02/18/14]   You just know things are getting juicy when a discussion on time-space continuum breaks out!

[02/16/14]   We have officially wrapped up the RED AEGIS Alpha playtest! What does this mean? Soon, our awesome Kickstarter backers will get their hands on the Beta playtest document, where they'll have the opportunity to see the game before anyone else--and help shape nuances of the game.

[02/04/14]   Who want's to play RED AEGIS? Soon, all of our backers will be able to delve into the craziness of this new kind of RPG!

[01/28/14]   We expect neuro-overload for our Vorpal team from the latest alpha packet. Lots to chew on!

[01/26/14]   It's a busy day here at Vorpal Games. We submitted our RED AEGIS seminar event for Gen Con Indy, and we're working on the latest alpha packet. Did you get to do any gaming this weekend?
