Description:

 

An Epic Science Fiction Game from the Author of Legend of the Five Rings, 7th Sea and Houses of the Blooded.

In the middle of the 30th Century, the discovery of interstellar travel allowed mankind to spread its reach to the stars. At the end of the 40th Century, mankind had its first contact with alien life. By the beginning of the 50th Century, mankind was an endangered species.

- Ubamé Vills, The Rise and Fall of Humanity

Inspired by a request to make a “gritty 80’s mech game,” The Aegis Project includes rules for three very different different eras spanning five centuries. Three different settings with distinct feels and rules.

The First Era

Mankind develops “Aegis Armor” to defend itself against an alien enemy bent on human extinction.

The Second Era

A brutal civil war divides mankind threatening everything he has gained.

The Third Era

A dark covert war against an AI enemy who will either uplift man or destroy him.



When you run out of food, when you run out of bullets, when you run out of bandages, all you have left is hope. Kill a man’s hope and you win the war. 
- Taven Shaval, Rebellion Leader of Olume V Colony

This game is full of great ideas for military and mecha games that I have wanted to see in print for some time. The rules seem to support the proper feel of play to go with these ideas. In particular, the three historical periods presented have difference [...]

Let me preface this review by saying two things: 1) This is my first experience with John Wicks work (nope I never played or even read Legend of the 5 Rings *gasp*!) so I really had no idea what kind of product this would be. I can say that I really [...]

Overall, The Aegis Project is a solid game with an interesting setting and a rules-medium approach. There are narrative gaming elements woven in with more traditional systems that make this something of a unique product. The writing is clear and concis [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
