USHER Dossiers gets another 5-star review

Thanks Joe for the great review!

I like this one so much I'm going to quote it, also, cause USHER Dossiers is my baby.

Over the last decade, Charles Rice has shared bits and pieces of his amazing USHER superhero setting with us through various game systems (like d20 Modern) and publishers (RPGObjects and his own Vigilance Press), so I was thrilled to hear that he was doing this definitive work, this time for the ICONS system. The one thing that really impresses me is how the Vigilance Universe feels every bit as real as the Marvel and DC Universes - it makes you wish you could walk into a comic book shop and ask for the latest issue of Minuteman or Old Glory, or finally pick up a collector's copy of Amazing Stories of WWII #1 on eBay after years of searching. It's a great supers setting and the artwork by James Dawsey, Jon Gibbons, and Dan Houser really makes it come alive. This is a stellar piece of work and a great addition to the ICONS game system.

Darrin Drader, author of WOTC's d20 Apocalypse and Charles Rice, author of the Fertile Crescent Gazetteer for RPGObjects, are teaming up to write Nuclear Sunset (working title), a full campaign setting for the OSR post-apocalypse game, Mutant Future.

Even better, you can watch the design unfold and comment on the work in progress here.

So come join the fun!

Sword's Edge is back

Sword's Edge Publishing, run by my friend Fraser Ronald, is coming back in a big way it seems.

They have 5 books on the horizon: Arcane Kingdoms; Sword Noir, the roleplaying game of hardboiled sword and sorcery; Kiss my Axe, thirteen warriors and an angel of death; a Sword Noir short story collection, and a sword noir adventure.

All of this sounds exciting to me, especially the idea of a new RPG, and one that sounds like it might have its own take on the fantasy genre.

Stay tuned!

USHER Dossiers review round up!

It's early going, but some reviews have already landed for the USHER Dossiers!

Here's the two early entries:

Tommy Brownell gave the book 4 stars and had this to say: As far as I'm concerned, and no disrespect intended to anyone else, but Vigilance Press is the best thing to happen to the ICONS game, period. It's not just the volume of support, as impressive as that is, but it is the quality of support, and they are trying to raise the bar all of the time.

Curt Meyer said: The GM of my current icons campaign, someone who like myself has been gaming for over 20 years, says of the Usher Dossiers that it's one of the best written RPG supplements he's read in years. The art by Dan Houser doesn't hurt either. There's a lot of useful stuff in here for your house campaigns as well.
Thanks guys!

Wednesday is comic book day at Vigilance Press!

Wednesday is a day supers fans know well.

It's the day we make our weekly sojourn to the comic shop and see the latest triumphs and tragedies of our favorite heroes and heroines.

Lately, you can't even buy a comic for less than 3.99 but at Vigilance Press, we think that's just wrong.

So, between now and midnight Wednesday, Field Guide to Superheroes Vol. 1, Field Guide to Superheroes Vol. 2, Public Enemies and the USHER Dossiers for ICONS have all been marked down to 1.99!

Check it out!
