The perfect blend...

The show offers a finely-tuned mix of analysis, criticism, and sincere deconstruction of the wuxia genre. It managed to walk all the right lines: deeply respectful of the material without being either didactic or cynical, easy-going without snark or self-indulgence, and a really fine ratio of recap to analysis to practical RPG discussion. It’s clearly modeled heavily after ‘200 a day’, which is a pretty great foundation to start from.

Great for fans of wuxia and newbies alike

Eli Kurtz and Eric Farmer have begun their training for the task of making a tabletop role playing game that captures the excitement and melodrama of wuxia cinema. They approach the topic with both humility and great insight and curiosity. The result is a very enjoyable podcast that somehow manages to be both exhilarating and cerebral. Give it a listen! Episode 10 is a great jumping on point for new listeners.
