It is another one of those days in geek source land where I cannot really believe my eyes. Watching the total of Shadowrun Returns climb is a little unsettling. $150,000 in five or so hours is not to be sneered at.

Martial Arts Guidebook from Rite Publishing

This weeks seconds interview is with Steven D. Russell, of Rite Publishing. He spared some of his valuable time to talk to use about the forthcoming Pathfinder Compatible Martial Art Guidebook.

We also talk a little about Patronage variant of the Crowdsourcing approach, and a number of rites other projects.  It was such a long interview, that we had to make cuts, but it doesn't seem right to leave that material on the cutting room floor, so check back later for bonus material.

The first of this weeks interviews is with Louis Porter Jr. of LPJ design. We chatted about his new adventure Origins of Man for pathfinder RPG, as well as NeoExodus more generally, and a lot of other stuff, including how to go about setting up a crowd source funded RPG project and how awesome Hugo 'Butterfrog'  Solis  is.

Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack - Interview with Joshua A.C. Newman

On Wednesday, I had the distinct pleasure to have a chat with Joshua A. C. Newman, writer of Shock: Social Science Fiction and Shock: Human Contact about Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack, our mutual love of mecha anime, Charlie Stross and much else besides. A lot of laugher had to be edited out on both sides. 

Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack is a collaboration between Joshua and Vincent Baker, writer of Dogs in the Vineyard (which is possibly the best of all indie RPGs). Additionally, there's art by Soren Roberts, unlike what you'd expect in a table top strategy game.

Apologies for the poor line while discussing Joshua's involvement with TiGr Titanium Bike Lock.

Welcome to GeekSourcing

Hi, I'm Ben Wenham and welcome to GeekSourcing, the geek culture crowd sourcing podcast.

We are gearing up to provide a weekly show highlighting interesting comics, music and games being funded via crowd sourcing. We have been scouring the Inter-tubes to bring you things we think are cool and worthy of your time and interest. 

Our first interview, with designer and publisher James Raggi, from Lamentations of the Flame Princess, is now up. This should be followed soon by an interview with Joshua A. C. Newman, one of the team behind the very exciting looking Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack, a table top strategy game with a very cool twist.

Interview with Jame Raggi

So, the last twenty four hours have been hectic. Due to time constraints around The Monolith from beyond Space and Time plus The God that Crawls by James Raggi, we have put up our interview with him ahead of our first show.
