The Tianxia Arcana for the Deck of Fate is now available to the public!

pirate sample pc_v2Our Tianxia Kickstarter backers will want to check their messages for some discount codes, and if you haven’t picked up the Deck of Fate from Evil Hat you might want to stay tuned over the next couple of days if you haven’t picked up the Deck of Fate from Evil Hat, check below for a bundle we’re offering… but for everyone else, head right to this link for our very first Drive Thru Cards product!

Once again, I’d like to thank Daniel Solis, Jack Norris, and Dionysia Jones for their work on these cards. I’d also like to thank Fred Hicks and Evil Hat for partnering with us to make this product possible. Our licensing agreement with them allows us to use the actual Deck of Fate backing so that you can integrate these cards into your existing deck seamlessly! We’ll also be partnering with them to release a bundle if you haven’t picked up the Deck of Fate yet, so stay tuned for news on that in the coming days.

If you haven’t picked up the Deck of Fate yet, you can grab both the deck of fate and the Tianxia Arcana as a bundle right here!

Find your Path of Destiny! Available Now!

pirate sample pc_v2

We are proud to announce today’s release of the first “Add-on” product for Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade. Jack Norris’s Path of Destiny is a helpful set of tables and character creation advice that will guide you through character generation for Tianxia. Roll Fate dice or choose your way through the tables, it doesn’t matter. There are no “Bad” options! For each step of the way, you’ll also find expanded explanations and workshop-like discussions of different options, as well as suggested Aspects and other surprising ideas.

Path of Destiny is available now from Drive-Thru RPG as a “Pay what you want” product. Pay as little as nothing, or as much as you think it’s worth. We feel this product acts as a very good “Appendix” to the Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade product, and a great way to help players jump-start character creation for a Tianxia campaign!

Find it at Drive-Thru RPG here!

The Latest Marathon episode of the Vigilance Press Podcast is up!

First, Jack Norris talks about the plans for upcoming releases of the Dragon Age pen and paper RPG. We then talk about AGE, the system driving Dragon Age, and the plans Green Ronin may or may not have. After that, we go into detail about the Tianxia stretch goals as they are going into production and upcoming Vigilance Press projects for Mutants and Masterminds and ICONs.
Whew! There’s a lot of content in this episode, almost 2 hours of epic rambling!
Stay Vigilant!
