THIS IS AN IN-DEVELOPMENT GAME AND IS AVAILABLE FOR FREE DURING THE PLAY-TESTING AND DEVELOPMENT PROCESS.

Armour Astir: Advent is a high-fantasy roleplaying game about striking back against an authority that seeks to control you.

It is a game of rival pilots clashing in steel-clad Astirs, of soldiers holding their own against the odds, and of spies and diplomats twisting the world to their ends. It is not a game of careful preparation or pleasant truces;

It's hard to change the world without taking a risk.

Armour Astir: Advent is a PBTA game where the players use their wits, expertise, and their huge enchanted suits of armour to fight against an oppressive regime.

Featuring;

  • Four 'Channeler' playbooks - magical mecha pilots who stride into battle in a custom Astir
  • Four 'Support' playbooks - the engineers, spies and diplomats whose skills lie off the battlefield
  • Health/Harmless combat - players must force their opponents into a corner by making them take risks or putting them in peril
  • Simple Faction & Conflict Turn - The Authority makes claims and gains hold on Factions who must block their efforts
  • Armour Astir: Ascent - a rework of the core playbooks and new example Astirs for sci-fi themed play
  • Armour Astir: Artifice - a microgame about creating an Astir for three players, originally created for #WizJam2k19
