Robin Milliken joins us for this episode of the Vigilance Press Podcast. A native speaker of Chinese, Robin helps host James Dawsey learn more about the language, pronouncing important place names in the fictional Tianxia setting, and discusses elements of Chinese culture we hope will be relevant to gamers playing Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade!

Tianxia Kickstarter Draft Page is up! Check it out!

• October 11th, 2013

Thank you for tuning in to a very special Kickstarter episode of the Vigilance Press Podcast! We're talking with Jack Norris today, creator of Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade for the Fate Core System! We're going to talk about who we plan to involve in our stretch goals, a little bit about the setting, the Kung Fu rules, and more. We've got a lot to talk about, so forgive us if we ramble a bit.


The Kickstarter Page is still being looked over by the folks at Kickstarter, so it isn't live yet. You can check out the Draft of the kickstarter to find out more, watch the video, and click the star to be informed when it does go live! We hope you're as excited as we are!

Stay Vigilant!
(Edited: We've edited the Kickstarter Draft and the podcast to reflect a few changes- The Sifu's Scroll option will be replaced by Backerkit's ability to handle Add-ons easily, so you'll be able to add as many books as you want to your order, as well as dropping the entry level to be a playtester to the minimum backer level of $1.00)

Ryan Macklin talks MYTHENDER!

• September 14th, 2013
In this episode of the Vigilance Press Podcast, I have the distinct pleasure to talk to Ryan Macklin, editor and game designer. Ryan talks to me at length about Mythender, his free RPG available for download from Drive Thru RPG and RPGNow.com. We also go into publishing via Drive-Thru's Print on Demand tools and discuss his editing work with Paizo, publishers of Pathfinder. There is a smattering of colorful language in this episode, so this podcast *might* not be safe for everyone, if "F-Bombs" are deemed offensive.

Links to his personal site and the Mythender site are below, check 'em out and enjoy his game!
