Game Update 50: RED AEGIS is at the printer!
Hardcover The good news is that the RED AEGIS Roleplaying Game is at the printer! The bad news is that they only just received the print-ready files from us last Thursday. That puts us in the digital proofing stage, where they apply our documents to their print templates and we sign off on the maste...

The RED AEGIS Core Rulebook is now in layout! Check out the September Update for more info, include preview art from illustrator Jim Nelson.
Layout: I’m pleased to announce that the RED AEGIS Core Rulebook is now in layout. That means that our graphic design guru, Erik Nowak, is taking the content from the manuscript and laying out the final pages in Adobe InDesign. This will take a few weeks to complete, but we have a few pages we can p…
In all the excitement leading up to Gen Con, we forgot to cross post our August RED AEGIS update to Facebook. Within you'll get the latest scoop on our release schedule and preview new art by illustrator Ricardo Guimaraes.
Hello again gamers! Updated Schedule: The initial round of edits on the RED AEGIS Core Rulebook are now complete. Alas, this effort shined a light on areas of the manuscript that could benefit from further clarification, as well as some game mechanics that need additional tuning and refinement. This…

The RED AEGIS July Update provides a gameplay example and showcases new art by Kerem Beyit.
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…
The RED AEGIS June Update includes new art by illustrator Eric Belisle. Check it out!
Design: Writing is still ongoing, which means we are now a couple weeks behind schedule, but our editing team has already begun the work of fine tuning the completed chapters of the manuscript. We are still on target to release the completed PDF of the RED AEGIS Core Rulebook in August, though it ma…
Brian didn't want me posting this, but I'm going to give away a limited edition signed Red Aegis book to one random preorder that picks up the digital boxed set. -Matt
PREORDERS are now available! Get in on the RED AEGIS roleplaying game. If you missed our Kickstarter, this is a great way to still make it into the action. If you're already a backer, you can manage your pledge, select add-ons, and pick up even more!

We have industry editing expert Miranda Horner working on the Red Aegis RPG product as we speak. The TSR alumni brings a massive amount of experience to the table. Very few can count D&D 2e - 4e on their resume!
Too late for TBT, but here's Brian and Matt at Gen Con 2009. They were running their Forgotten Realms D&D adventure 'Monument of the Ancients' that appeared in Dungeon Magazine #170.
More RED AEGIS concept art from Jason Engle to tease you with. Seriously, he calls these rough sketches!?

[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).
[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.
As promised, here is a piece of concept art by Jason Engle. We would tell you what it's all about, but we don't want to spoil all the fun.
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.
Vorpal Games internal playtest is happening right now with Matt James, Brian R. James, Erik Scott de Bie, Jennifer Brozak, and more...
Our latest beta packet went out late last night!
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!
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.
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.
Some big updates in the next beta playtest packets. You'll see more of the roleplaying precepts that were not included in the first.
Well, that took all of 10 minutes. I can tell we're going to have a fairly awesome playtest!
RELEASE THE KRAKEN! Vorpal Games is pleased to announce that the beta playtest for Kickstarter backers has been sent out.
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.
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)
You just know things are getting juicy when a discussion on time-space continuum breaks out!
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.
Oops. It seems I accidentally dropped a screen capture here. Clumsy me (-Matt)
