Tune in to the latest episode of the Vigilance Press Podcast to hear showrunner John Rogers talk about his hit new television show, “The Librarians!” There may be a few spoilers peppered through the conversation, so listen at your own risk!
We touch on how Tabletop gaming and entertainment have influenced each other, especially when it comes to writing. John name-drops a lot of his favorite Role-playing Games, and talks a little about how shows like Leverage can wind up as properties for role-playing games!
Thanks again to John for finding the time in his very busy schedule, and good luck on the show!

Tianxia Demo Games
I’ve had several people ask me if there are any sample scenarios for running a Tianxia game at conventions or for players who haven’t played Fate before. As we haven’t released our starting adventure “The Twelve Golden Butchers” yet, I thought it would be a good time to let folks know how I run demos at conventions and share my notes on doing so.
The following encounter should demonstrate how I’ve been teaching people to play Tianxia when I show the game off at conventions. I’ll try and include a map to show off Zones in an upcoming post, but for now let me concentrate on the general notes on how I run the game and what kind of challenges I give the players. I often pair this encounter with a second one based on the “Jade-Eyed Demon” scenario found on pages 168 and 169 of Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade. When I refer to the “Second Encounter” I’m talking about the villain from that plot seed.
