Kung Fu fantasy and epic Wuxia adventure come to life in Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade. Created for Fate Core System!
Renowned game designer Jack Norris presents an all-new adventure setting with Kung Fu rules designed from the ground up for the Fate Core roleplaying game. Beautifully illustrated in full color by Denise Jones, this book presents in detail the wild and dangerous Western province of Jiāngzhōu, a border territory in the greater empire of Shenzhōu. Players take on the role of Wuxia—wandering kung fu masters with skills and abilities that grant them the power to affect the fates of many—who are part of the Jianghu, a select culture of Kung Fu elite whose skills set them apart from other social groups.
Tinaxia: Blood, Silk & Jade is the first of a series of supplements for the Tianxia line. Future books already in the works include the Tianxia Lifepath Generator, which will include an Addendum for using our Kung Fu rules with Fate Accelerated Edition, the Twelve Golden Butchers adventure, and other sourcebooks expanding on different regions of Shenzhōu, opening up new gaming vistas like Chinese mysticism and epic battle scale combat.
Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade is designed for Evil Hat Productions’ Fate Core System and requires those rules to play, but the supplemental material is written so that it can be easily used for any role playing system. Your journey through the world of Tianxia begins here: you might be a beggar priest, or the child of the Emperor himself, but it will be your abilities as a Wuxia that shapes your fate… and the fate of everyone you meet.
The book that started it all! Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade takes the Fate Core rules and expands on them to give you the tools to run a high-flying kung fu campaign. Explore the original setting, characters, and unique kung fu rules created by Jack Norris. Hardcover available from Indie Press Revolutions, get PDF free with the book! 190 pages, 8.5 by 10 inches, hardcover, full color.

Tianxia: Path of Destiny (PDF Only) (Drive Thru RPG Link)
Tianxia: Path of Destiny is a Lifepath Generator for Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade!
This PDF acts as an Appendix to the Kung Fu fantasy setting outlined in Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade, and can help you jump-start character creation. Presented as equal parts random tables and character creation workshop, Jack Norris‘s Path of Destiny will help you discover new characters with a roll of the dice!
Easy-to-use tables will help you quickly choose aspects, skill assignments, and background elements for your characters. Sidebars and expanded explanations throughout will help you expand on the ideas sparked by the tables! You can roll or pick your way through the tables, too, there’s no “Good” or “Bad” options, characters built this way will not wind up more or less powerful than characters built using the guidelines in the Tianxia core book.
Presented as our very first “Pay what you want” product, this PDF was created as an extension of the Tianxia line of gaming books thanks to our Kickstarter Campaign. We are making it available to the public, because we think it’s too awesome to keep to ourselves, but it works best when you also have the core book Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade and the Fate Core System rulebook, as well as a set of Fate or Fudge dice.

A simple table will help you convert your Jianghu Rank into invocations for your Chi Armor, and guidelines for assigning Approaches to different Kung Fu Elements and Body substyles. Sidebars and expanded explanations throughout help illustrate how to implement the various guidelines. We have also included the Tianxia: Blood, Silk & Jade sample player characters in accelerated form so you can see how it all comes together in the end!
