Episode 5 of Aes-y Listening is out! We continue with the Tao Te Ching with the next nine parts.
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!
Been wanting to buy Aes art prints and books? We now have an Etsy store!
You can purchase art prints and hand bound coil books of the most recent core book from there. We’ll be adding more prints soon. The book is also coming to CreateSpace soon. We’ll share that link when it’s available.
We’re pleased to announce that Aes: Brass Revolution will be partnering with Extra Life and Dell Children’s to present a special fundraising event!
When: Noon, Saturday, November 5th until Noon, Sunday, November 6th
We’ll be raising money through our Extra life team: Team Brass. Using Skype, players of Aes from many areas will take part in a 24-hour marathon game: “Vis for Vendetta.” The session will be recorded and released later. Donate to the team page to show support for the tabletop gamers making the commitment.
We’re looking for 4-8 players who can participate. We so far have 2 who are interested in the entire duration and 1 who’ll join us in the evening. So definitely room for more!
