Armour Astir Advent: Playtest $5.00

Armour Astir Advent: Playtest: $5.00

Publisher: Briar Sovereign

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. As in in-development project, the playtest version of Armour Astir: Advent is available for free! If you just want to try out the game, you don't need to pay a penny. An in-progress version of the full rules, up to date with artwork from nearly a dozen artists and fiction by myself and guests, is available for purchase elsewhere and will be for sale here once complete.


  • 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
  • Customised Astirs - players may pick from examples, or design their own mech as part of character creation
  • Health/Harmless combat - players must force their opponents into a corner by making them take risks or putting them in peril
  • Simple Factions & Conflict Turn - The Authority makes claims and gains hold on Factions who must block their efforts
