We start this podcast off talking with Rick Jones and Tolly Gipson about campaign creation. The topic is the difference between "Episodic" campaigns which depend less on continuity from session to session, and more "Serial" campaigns which rely more on continuity. After that, and with (I hope) fair warning, we start up a spoiler-iffic review of the recent film Iron Man 3 and talk a little bit about Super Rescues!
As always, we'd love to hear from you what you'd like so we can do more podcasts in that vein. Comment on our www.vigilancepress.com page, and let us know what you like!

Tonight's podcast brings together Jason Tondro, Jack Norris, Rick Jones, and Aaron Sullivan for a powerhouse discussion on upcoming Vigilance Press products! We also answer some fan questions and discuss some finer points of GM'ing a campaign- NPC Character concepts, adventure design, and more!
(Unfortunately, I mis-spoke in describing the METAs project, it is in layout but the first issue will only contain the first collection of the original 30 slots that people bought. Sorry for the confusion! The other characters will appear in the coming issues, and anyone who bought into the project will receive the first three PDFs free!)
Also check our our latest Print on Demand offering from Create Space here: Black Chapter! (Also available on Amazon.com- search for "Due Vigilance" and it'll pop up)
