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)

Campaign Creation and Iron Man 3!

• May 13th, 2013

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 page, and let us know what you like!
