When two tribes go to war

In a world where kung fu is king, even wuxia heroes sometimes face battles too large to fight alone. Mike Olson’s martial-arts-infused mass combat rules add a new dimension to the world of Tianxia!

Friends, foes, and Faultless Wu

Within these pages you will encounter many new faces from the world of Tianxia. From Grandmaster Faultless Wu of the Three Mountains School, to Frozen Flower, snow maiden of the North. Prepare to encounter many new, iconic characters who will breathe new life into your campaigns.

Tianxia: War, Iron & Stone is written by Jack Norris and Mike Olson, with full-color art by series illustrator Dionysia Jones. Designed to work with the Fate Core System!

Spirits, Beasts & Spells going into layout tomorrow… Live on Twitch!

Blood,SilkAndJadeCoverPromo600wideFolks, I have some great news that I wanted to share with you before I headed off to the JAFAX convention last week, but I needed to wait until the contract had been signed and some back-and-forth made that timing a little off. So this announcement may sound a bit more last-minute than it actually is, but here we go!

Daniel Solis, who did the amazing layout and graphic design work on Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade, is going to be tackling our Spirits, Beasts & Spells book! We’re very excited to have Daniel back, working on the second major release of the Tianxia books. Ruben Byrd and I are still hard at work at the other Tianxia material for you, so bringing Daniel on means we’ll be able to get more of the Tianxia books done in a shorter period of time!

Not only that, but he’s going to be streaming it live on his Twitch channel, if people want to watch him work! We estimate he’ll be done towards the end of July, and he’ll be starting roughly tomorrow (July 1) with the streaming. His working hours will be roughly from noon to five in the evening Eastern Time. If you want to keep up with him, follow his Twitter handle @DanielSolis for updates! If you subscribe to it, you can also set it to send you email alerts so you’ll know the latest info on his plans.

You can find his Twitch Tv stream here (It may not always be live):

And his Twitter link, in case you don’t know how to find it by the @DanielSolis address:

I’ll be releasing some more art to you soon as Denise is still chugging away on various pieces for the upcoming books, but I wanted to make this a standalone post to share with everyone right away.

Thanks again for backing us, and I hope you’re as excited as I am to watch Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells come to life!

New Vigilance Press Podcast! Steve Kenson talks Blue Rose Kickstarter Campaign!

Nero the Newshound

Green Ronin super-star Steve Kenson joins us today to talk about the new edition of the Blue Rose roleplaying game! We discuss what it means to have an “inclusive” setting, what kind of magic and characters you can create in the Blue Rose setting, and Steve drops a Sir Mix-a-Lot reference. Tune in for all the details!


 I apologize in advance for any audio issues on my side of the recording. I’m in the process of building out my new podcast recording set-up and it sounds like I need a new microphone. I’ll try and have that remedied by next week’s episode.
