Have a question?
Yeah it's a matter of matching the names and letters!
An AS robot named Aroz means it needs to be made of an Aroz and any S.
You can also look at the pages of the rulebook with this info at zephyrworkshop.com/rules. there are some diagrams.
Also we have not put up a full list of the robots anywhere yet, even though this info is available in the demos. That's a bit silly, so here is a quick list of the card contents and I'll also include it in the next update:
Of course, looking at the cards in the PnP/TabletopSim where they're neatly organized is easier than looking at a spreadsheet. Eventually we will have a little database of these robots on our site and it will tell you which robots can go into what.
@Kyle Here's a few examples:
The ELL-2000 is an EG robot which means it is made up of two robots, one of which must be an E and the other of which must be a G. Because the robot's name is ELL-2000, that means that the E type robot must be an ELL. So, the ELL-2000 can be made from any ELL and any G type robot.
Another important thing is that robot names carry over through combining: Let's say I want to make the level 3 GET-SSM. It is an AGS robot that require a GET and an SSM somewhere in it's construction. For example, if I have an AG type ABB-1000 I can combine it with an S type SSM to create the GET-SSM. HOWEVER this will only work if the G type making up the ABB-1000 is a GET.
Does that make sense?
Is there somewhere I can see the specific rules of combining options? Since there's no complete robot list as far as I've seen I am having trouble figuring out exactly what robots can combine with what robots to make specific robots. Maybe I'm missing a simple point, but help would be appreciated.
Whooooo! Hoping to receive on Jan 23rd! (My birthday! :-D)
@Breeze Grigas - Thanks! :D
@Adam All the games will be shipped at the same time, so approximately Jan/Feb as per the current timeline
what's the ETA for UK backers?
@Jake - It was totally broken when the update was first posted, but the link to the PnP has since been fixed (twice) and it should work now. Check the update again and let me know if it's still busted.
For the Print & Play, is anyone else getting an error message and a download that is empty? The Tabletop Sim download appeared to work for me.
We are very excited for PAX Unplugged, for the other designers here, we're also making plans to be at Metatopia around the same time and place too.
For those not following us on our Discord channel chat, we've gotten tons of art and graphic work in and I'm drafting the new update as we speak. The Pledge Manager and demos are also almost ready, sorry that the demo is 2-3 weeks overdue!! We're also on the road to GenCon and hope to see a bunch of you there! We will be hanging out at Greenbrier Games Booth 1649 for a lot of the time, and be running AEGIS events the rest of the time. Thanks for your patience and support!
Answered my own question, PAX Unplugged is a go for AEGIS! Found it in one of the updates. Looking forward to it :)
Any chance you guys will be demoing at PAX Unplugged? Sorry if this was answered already, a quick sift through the comments didn't turn up an answer. :)
@Mazzoni Glad to hear you have everything you need/want! If you do have a burning desire to add more to your pledge, the add-ons offered during the campaign will be available via pledge manager.
I think I have everything I would ever need/want thanks to my pledge but just in case, will we be able to get specific add-ons in the future pledge manager?
Ya'll are awesome.
That is all.
Adam, we're looking at mid-August to open the pledge manager!
When is the PM opening?
I guess that's the side effect of having a Discord Channel(see update 13), a lot of the fans have migrated over there and we have some pretty fun discussions
Ryos and Poppet share a special bond... I'm excited to keep that story going in incoming updates. The next of which will probably be around the end of the month or so. We have the nose to the grindstone, and have done a lot of work with defining the five / ten new Commanders in the box, as well as reviewing the current roster of robots and our mechanics in preparation to push out that demo to you all.
Also don't forget to follow us on Twitch, I go up on stream every Wednesday and most Sundays to do art and discuss story content usually!
I'm a little surprised that there has not been any chatter here for almost two weeks. I know nothing is really moving with the game at the moment but where is all the character speculation? My biggest question is, did Poppet hire Ryos? According to update 12, they were about to meet face-to-face. Will all hell break loose when the two forces team up?
Is discussion happening elsewhere?
Whoo! Great update, I really like the idea of the chart. I'm looking forward to seeing how this kickstarter plays put just as much as I'm looking forward to the game.
Congrats on the funding! Im glad we got most of the stretch goals. Im excited to play the TTS version with my friends.
Gratz on the successful funding!
What are the chances we get a 4th Quadra and 3rd and 4th AEGIS class robots in the final 4 that were part of the 49k goal? (Did I miss the announcement what class robots they were?) Would love to try some matches starting with higher tiered robots! Pretty please! :D
Looking forward to the game. I have always said there needs to be more mecha themed games in board gaming, and I'm glad I could help make this one happen.
Yep! But you can also combine a Trio and a Duo into a Quadra in emergencies!
Did we just make a stretch goal that I really wanted by $3? And congratulations guys; glad I heard about this in time to jump on board.
@Joseph Blevins Thanks!
@Kevin, yes you can :) you can combine any two robots that have the required level and component robots. So to combine into a Quadra class, you could use a Base and a Trio class, or two Duos, for instance.
Successful funding!!! Well done everyone!!! Can't wait to enjoy this game with all my Gundam loving friends :)
I have a question about combining: Could you make a quadra or aegis with duos and trios?
One of the campaigns I've been the most excited about by far, proud to have been (and to be) a backer!
Of all board games with robots I know, AEGIS is the coolest in my eyes, congratulations for the successful funding. :)
Thank you all so much. 679 of the greatest people alive. I will have an update for you soon about what our next steps are! Can't wait to get you the coolest robot game ever.
Congratulations! Can't wait to start combining! :D
Comment 500! Woohoo!
Very nice. Way to go!
Wooo! Go out with a bang! 52.5 is awesome guys congrats~
Let's gattai-a-go-go, baby!
T_T we did it!
We did it! Thank you everyone, we're very grateful for all the support!
$52.5k of $16.2k, I'd call that a success!
Also- the stream is still going! twitch.tv/zephyrworkshop

Love the Gibson artwork. I kinda wish he could redo the character board artwork, I'm not really a fan of the current style.
