All of the 702 cards are doneWell, not done as in printed but done as in "Final Final" so, if you would like to click on the images, go to the respective links and see if you can spot any elusive typos, that would be helpful for the "Ultimate Final Final" file, the one that goes to print.
The Mini Cards
After going around and making sure everything makes sense within the Events, within the Set-ups, within the different game versions, within HISTORY. We have the newest and, we hope, the last iteration of the Missions, Milestones, Power Struggles, and Ideas for you here.

The Events, Setup Cards, and Action Cards
We have been through these many times over and made up our minds about the effects and the repercussions they will have on the Rules and game. Still! If you see any typo there that tingles your grammar-senses, this is the last time you can do it before we send them to print.

So, the Rulebooks are progressing too
Here are some of the illustrated gameplay examples on which I have been working lately:
Additionally, recent discussions in our Discord about things like CtA (Call to Arms), Crusades, have helped us to nail down these segments of the rules, and simply make the whole game better and more coherent. There are still some gray areas and minor holes in the rules that we want to tidy up, and that is why we are not through with it so far. Our goal is to deliver a game that will be on your table regularly, because you love it, and it is good and flexible.

Realm Player AidAt least there is something I am working on that I can show to you, and many of you have asked to have. This is not final, religions must be updated and decided, and the last changes on the map must be taken into account.
Final Map – at the PrintersAy mamasita! What a ride, trying to find the most appropriate names for each of the Provinces and Areas, and make everyone happy. But this is how it goes, and files for both the boards and play mat add-ons have been submitted to the printers.
When in doubt we have used EU4 naming conventions where it was applicable. In the cases where there have been no direct equivalents to compare to we have had to trust our own instincts in the end but also taken a lot of feedback to heart from you guys, our backers, and members of the Aegir Games Discord Server Community.
Player MatsSome days ago, @Captanc asked in the Discord about the size of each player on the table, so I did some pictures, and I thought, these could also go for an update. Here you see how good and tidy is, how 20 Units fit perfectly on the Available Manpower Pool, and that there is enough space on the Monarch Powers to fit all the cubes.
Things I would like to highlight:
- The rounded corners on the Player Mat.
- How tidy everything is, easy to place and reach.
- The new slot for the "Change National Focus" cube.
- How tilted the leftmost Large Town is (heheheh).
- The different configurations possible and more, up to your imagination.
Scenario Showcase Videos!Thanks to the help of Jarige, Mikhs, CrazyShini, Arccos, and Al'Eskander, we are making a series of videos with experienced players, showcasing the first, or first few, rounds of each Official Scenario. But we also explain the hows and whys of each of our actions, so you can learn to play with them too!
Here it is the Sea Route to India, the last one recorded:

One by one, all Snap points have to be placed by hand
Thanks to the Community as always, for providing feedback for all the components and rules. And thanks especially to Mikhs and CrazyShini who helped me to click on all the provinces and Snaps on the newest map, so we can have the latest. Mikhs also updates the scenarios on TTS, with the newest cards so we all can play the latest version of the game. Thanks also to Patch for providing the punchline in the title of this section.
I think I have said it many times, but I will still say it again. If you want to be part of the active community and test with us Join the Discord! we do demos anytime people need them!
