Today's Vigilance Press Podcast guest is Jon Leitheusser, who speaks to us about the new Mutants and Masterminds kickstarter project. We also discuss the progress of other M&M-related publications like Supernatural Handbook, Emerald City, and the DC Adventures Universe book!
Thanks to Jon for stopping by, and check the kickstarter out at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1780208966/mutants-and-masterminds-10-year-anniversary-editio
(no, the link didn't get cut off, that's how it appears on Kickstarter's site!)
* Slight update on the info presented in the podcast. Jon and I spoke briefly about the "Character Promotion" reward listed on the kickstarter. Correcting our information, the characters will *not* have illustrations, they will simply be promoted on the M&M website. I do believe they will accept your own art if you want to submit art with the character, however!

The Lamplighter meets some new allies and some new enemies in the fight for justice! Jon Jason Tondro as The Lamplighter, Alex Williamson as Traxx the Traveler, and Tolly Gipson as Timeslip! James Dawsey Gamemasters for Mutants and Masterminds Third Edition. What new enemies will they face? What dark deeds await just around the corner? Tune in and find out!
A quick note: there is some background noise on the first 10 minutes of the recording, but it clears up shortly after that. I apologize for not being able to reduce the noise level any more with the editing software I have. I tried to tone it down, but it only seemed to cause other problems with the recording...
