OK, not my only hope, but you awesome and wonderful readers can sure save me a ton of time!
I'm starting in on the Appendices for Flying Swordsmen (still got some campaign setting work to do, and the sample characters to write up, and some more exposition/flavor vignettes to help explain the way I see the game being played, but I'm working on the Appendices now as well). My Appendix I (Roman numeral I, not letter I) will be inspirational sources. I'm not gonna get all the way up to N with my Appendices, so I'll start with this one.
Anyway, I've seen plenty of wuxia/martial arts movies. The original game, Dragon Fist, only listed wuxia movies in its inspiration appendix. I want to expand that to books, comics, video games, whatever. That's where you all can help out. If you've got a favorite wuxia/martial arts movie, book, comic, or game, please let me know in the comments. Even if it's only tangentially connected to wuxia (like say, TMNT comics), go ahead and let me know you like it or find it inspiring.
I can't guarantee everything will go in the book, but it will give me a bit of help trying to find things I'm not familiar with but should be! I'm not the world's #1 expert on martial arts or wuxia, I just find the genre really fun and thought Dragon Fist was a cool game that never got a chance and would like to give it a bit of a revival.
