We are so grateful for the overwhelming positive response we have received for Agents of Mayhem - Pride of Babylon. This game has so many unique features that we think you will find exciting and refreshing. We have spent years developing this system and thank you for your support. 

Agents of Mayhem - Pride of Babylon funded very quickly and we have unlocked our first four stretch goals! 

LEGION's Ministry of Pride has targeted Seoul because of its technological advances. Dr Babylon, Minister of the Ministry of Pride, is focused on the technological edge that dark matter can provide LEGION. In the coming days, we tell you the background story of their occupation and MAYHEM's fight to stop them! 

Make sure to read every Update... or you may not live to regret it...

35K Shock Trooper Unlocked!

The ground-pounding Elite Shock Trooper is heavily armored, tough, and very dangerous. Be extra careful, because the Shock Trooper is faster than it looks and Its ground pound weapon sends shock waves out that can damage everyone caught in its blast! 

In addition, the Shock Trooper shoots homing missiles that can tag even the most nimble of foes. They not only injure but also slow down the target. The Shock Troopers are especially dangerous in close quarters and when they hunt in groups! 

Note that at short range the Ground Pound attack deals 4 red d12 of damage against everything in its front arc!

40K Tai Chi Building Map Tile Unlocked!

On the ground floor of this building we find a well worn but very clean Tai Chi Dojo. Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese internal martial art practiced for defense along with its health and healing benefits. May this beautiful Dojo bring you peace... if nothing lurks in its shadows. 

Note the Hologram Instructor.

On the second floor we find Hollywood's secret love den. Its location is not known by anyone..., well except for maybe a few hundred very close friends. We can give no further details, because they are secret! 

The hot tub is set at Hollywood's preferred 104 F. Contest! Who can tell us what is shown on Hollywood's large screen TV? For adults only!

OK, so it is only the roof. But someone took great pride in its construction. So back off!

Tomorrow we will cover Scheherazade and the other unlocked stretch goals! 

Sleep well...  We will protect you from LEGION, for now.

      One person has figured out what is playing on Hollywood's large screen TV! ;)
      Anyone else taking a guess?

      We will be posting an update video explaining the Troopers' cards.

      In short though, the Shield, Armor, and Health symbols in the top left indicate how many Hits it takes to eliminate a Shock Trooper. Some attacks get bonuses vs different defenses.

      The center of the card shows the actions a Shock Trooper can perform. Actions are classified as main actions or add-on actions shown by the power symbol or the plus sign. A player may only take one main action a turn but any number of add-on actions in addition to the main action.

      The number of Action Cubes it costs to perform an action is shown above the open hand symbol.

      Every character has a basic attack that shows 3 colored ranges and how many dice they roll when attacking. The color of dice they roll is dependent on how far the target is. The Shock Trooper's Missile Blaster also has the added effect that all Hits also place a Slow Effect Marker on the targeted Unit.

      Instead of attacking, the Shock Trooper could just charge by paying one green cube. The number in the square indicates how many spaces it can move. The up arrow tells how many levels it could jump up and the arched arrow tells how many spaces it may jump over obstacles or gaps.

      The Shock Troopers last action is an alternative attack called ground pound that effects all enemies in an area. However, it has a delay shown by the purple Mayhem symbol. This means that the attack is resolved at the end of Mayhems turn, giving them a chance to react to the Shock Trooper charging up his powerful attack.

      The bottom of the card indicates how expensive it is to place a new Shock Trooper during a Mission on the left and how much it costs to deploy a Shock Trooper at the beginning of a Mission on the right.

      We are finishing up the first game play videos now that go over these features in better detail.

      Don't understand the unit cards symbol. Do explain please.

      Any chance you all can go over cards in more detail? I'd like to understand what I'm looking at.
