Episode 4 of Aes-y Listening is up! We start into the Tao Te Ching, one of the classic Taoist works. It’s a significant influence on Zhengqi culture.
The next two episodes of Aes-y Listening are online!
In episode 2, we read “I, Pencil” by Leonard Read. It’s a wonderful short essay that references one of the concepts we include in the game: the invisible hand. In Aes, that’s the title we grant our GM.
For episode 3, we read the foreword and afterword for “I, Pencil,” providing context for the essay in history.
Announcing a new regular video series: Aes-y Listening.
People who have bought a copy of the book have noticed we list many books as “sources.” A lot of classic philosophical works went into the design of Aes. This video series is one way we hope to shine a light on what helped us choose the beliefs of our heroes and villains.
Episode 1 is on YouTube now. We’ll post each installment. The goal is one episode a week. Enjoy!
