Thanks! I know it's been important for Alex throughout to make strong thematic connections between players and the various characters in the game (with the game mechanics justifying the theme, as with Hadrian's profiled pilot ability on the update, Wed to Steel, which takes its name for a common Aegian luddite mantra).

While many have identified with the Robots in GR! from the wider genre, I think it was important to bring some thematic heft to the second half of the player board. It makes battling it out for Giga-Shards that much more intense (and hopefully leads to more yelling of attacks) when you know what you are fighting for.

That's all greatly appreciated by me. I'm always looking for narrative experiences in boardgames. The people I usually play with are the same so that's makes it easier for something like this to hit my game table.
