War rages in the Icy North of Tianxia!

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!

Preview: Map of the Northern Provinces of Tianxia

Here’s a quick preview of the map for the upcoming War, Iron & Stone book. This map was illustrated by Marco Morte. The labels may change in font and effects as it goes into layout, but I wanted to give everyone a peek at the last piece of art created for Tianxia: War, Iron & Stone!

Tianxia: War, Iron & Stone was written by Jack Norris and Mike Olson, and will be going into layout next week.


Spirits, Beasts & Spells print proof ordered, plus Backerkit rewards!

Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells CoverThis is just a quick post to let everyone know that Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells has been cleared for the print on demand version. I ordered my print proof today, so it’ll be roughly a week or so until I get it. That means it may arrive while I’m out of town at Gen-Con, which will mean the product will likely not go live until I get back from Gen Con.

Starting today, we will be using Backerkit to start delivering digital rewards to our Kickstarter backers, in addition to the rewards through Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now. If you are a backer of the Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade kickstarter, you should check your Backerkit accounts at tianxia.backerkit.com to find some new files available later today.

RRR-Collection-One-Cover600Two great pieces of news today! First off, if you’ve been waiting for a good deal on most of our product lines, it’s Christmas! Christmas in July, that is.

Click the picture to the left to head straight to the Vigilance Press storefront at Drive Thru RPG and start shopping now. The sale runs through July 29th!







Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells CoverIn other news, Tianxia: Spirits, Beasts & Spells is now out of layout! I’ve uploaded the files to Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now, and am waiting on those files to be approved so we can set those files “live” for sale. More news on that as soon as the files are ready for sale. Check out today’s update on our Kickstarter campaign site for more details! 

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!

Christmas in July!

Nero the NewshoundHey folks!

I’m winging my way to Gen Con for the next week or so, but I wanted to make sure everyone knows that we are participating in the Christmas in July sale at Drive Thru RPG and RPG Now! Head over here to see our products and look for the sales prices on everything from Superheroes to Tianxia!

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!

Tianxia Accelerated is now live on Drive Thru RPG!

Blood,SilkAndJadeCoverPromo600wideHappy New Year, everyone! 

To start things off right, we’re releasing the retail version of our Tianxia Accelerated Appendix into the wild today. As with the “Path of Destiny” Appendix we released earlier, this is a “pay what you want” release. That means you can set the price, from as little as zero dollars to whatever you think the PDF is worth!

This is the “Accelerated Addendum” we announced as a stretch goal during the Kickstarter, but with a slight name change. We’re simply calling it Tianxia Accelerated to help people find the product more easily.
