A Tuesday of Telekinetic Terror!

Sometimes your brain just gets way too full of awful, terrible, dastardly, and dangerous ideas, and that’s what this week is all about. Legendary newcomer Matt Daley has been hard at work on a number of Starfinder projects, but he also took a deep dive into the darkest recesses of the mind to bring us the latest installment in our Horror Plug-Ins line, Terrors from the Id: The Book of Psionic Horror! This 40-page PDF brings you dozens and dozens of new character options for exploring the sinister secrets of psionics, peeling back the shroud of sanity and unleashing the atavistic terrors within! New archetypes, feats, psionic powers, and so much more are coming your way, and you can grab it today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG!

We also want to give a shout-out today to the fantastic work of another of Legendary Games’ newer authors, and one who made his debut dabbling in the power of the mind. N. Jolly’s work on the kineticist class garnered yet ANOTHER seal of approval from the esteemed Endzeitgeist for Legendary Kineticists IIwith him calling it not only an absolute must-have for kineticist players, but sharing the throne as THE BEST kineticist supplement in the game. High praise indeed, and well worth making not only Legendary Kineticists II but also the original Legendary Kineticists our twin TWO$DAY products of the week – get each one 80% for just $2!!!

Finally, after a brief passage through the layout wormhole, yet ANOTHER manual of mastery of the mind is coming next week when we unshackle Path of the Boundthe latest mythic pathway to power through soul-slaving and mind-melding with eldritch powers beyond mortal ken. When you open your mind to Things From Beyond, trust us: it will BLOW YOUR MIND!!!

Pirates for Everyone – and so much more!

The last few weeks have been abuzz with activity, getting books out the door and shipping literally HUNDREDS of copies of the Pirate Campaign Compendium for Pathfinder and the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition out to our backers, along with tons of bonus books they pledged for. In fact, we’ve been so busy that we’ve sent out ALL of our backer and preorder copies of the Pirate Campaign Compendium (Pathfinder) and that means… YO HO, YO HO A PIRATE’S LIFE FOR EVERYBODY! Even if you missed the amazing nautical Kickstarter this spring, you can now get your very own 500-page print copy or print/PDF bundle at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

Fulfillment on the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium is rolling merrily along as well, and once we’ve got all of our backer books out the door those books will likewise be available to everyone in the general public, hopefully before the end of June. We’ll definitely have copies of both books in time for GenCon!

Speaking of Kickstarters, the Fates of Madness Card Game Kickstarter is over halfway to its funding goal in just the first week! We are excited to see how far this game will go as we begin building a new audience for this new product line from Legendary Games and our partner on this project, Mythica Games. The team is traveling to numerous cons throughout the summer in support of the game, which they’ve been demo-ing and playtesting for months now, and we’re excited to have the project nearing completion where we’ll be ready to make it happen. Check out the Kickstarter right here, and the first update for a gameplay video!

Last but not least, we wanted to throw out a quick preview for Legendary Barbarians, the latest new class book for Pathfinder from Jeff Gomez, Jason Nelson, and N. Jolly! What will you find between these pages?

Legendary Barbarians is the latest volume in our series of class-focused player supplements, this time focusing on the fearsome barbarians! This core class has long been a staple of fantasy settings, representing both the power of anger and the rejection of civilization. Legendary Barbarians enhances these ideas with a streamlined redesign of the class that provides flexibility, flavor, and ferocity in a class that can tear your enemies apart! With Legendary Barbarians, the barbarian is able to choose the benefits of her rage, opening the class up to a limitless variety of concepts. Enlarging rage increases the barbarian’s size (Hulk Smash), while invincible rage lets her shrug off attacks with ease. Bestial rage transforms the barbarian to an animal and vicious rage sacrifices her hit points for greater damage. Dozens of alternate class features allow a piece-by-piece construction of your perfect barbarian, while 11 new archetypes (such as the mutagenic rager, slavering nightmare, and righteous berserker) tie your abilities together in a theme. The savage archetype trades out rage for a more stoic approach. The fury cannot stop raging. All this, plus new feats (like Wield Halfling), items, brands, and more!

The book is getting its final development pass this weekend and then it’s off to the layout queue to get ready for YOU! Get ready… THERE WILL BE BLOOD!

Kickstarters ahoy and MORE!   Recently updated !

So the triumphant return of MYTHIC MONDAY will have to wait until next week, as Path of the Bound is not *quite* done in layout yet, but I am delighted to report that Legendary Barbarians by Jeff Gomez, Jason Nelson, and Ehn Jolly is juuust about done in development and ready to head to layout as well.

In addition, we have much, MUCH more to share on the Kickstarter scene!
– Fates of Madness Adventure Card Game! Our Kickstarter kicked off last week and is climbing along. It’s a new venture for us but one we’re excited about and that we’ve been running convention demos and playtests at conventions for several months and getting a great response, and now in the latest update you can check out a terrific gameplay video showing how the game works right here! This project is running through early July, giving even more people chances to check out demos at their local conventions run by the design team, and we hope you’ll help spread the word and check it out!
Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium: The books are here! We’ve sent out our Amazon and distribution shipments to prep for our international backers, and our shipping boxes have arrived today for our domestic shipments – I’ll be heading down to pick them up once I finish this post! Team LG is ready to kick it into gear and get your books headed your way!
– Pirate Campaign Compendium: Over 100 books have already been sent out to backers – basically everyone who was getting a Pathfinder version of the book without add-ons has got their book headed out. We were waiting on shipping boxes for some backers, and we discovered we had to reupload one of our softcover print books for those getting that bundle along with their 500-page hardcover compendium, but it should cycle through by the end of this week and be ready to go!
– Alien Bestiary: The first sample chapter of the Alien Codex has gone out to backers, and we should have our first layout preview from the Alien Bestiary (Starfinder) ready to sent out in the next few days as well!
– Legendary Planet: I’m still making slow but steady progress on To Kill a Star and should be ready to send the next chapter over to the 5E team for conversion this week, so they can be working on that while I’m continuing on the Pathfinder version.
– Mythic Mania II: Wait, we haven’t even DONE this Kickstarter yet, but we announced it at PaizoCon last month and just wanted to update you that the team on this project is chugging along and making great progress on mythic material from the Advanced Class Guide, Adventurer’s Guide, Ultimate Intrigue, Ultimate Wilderness, Occult Adventures, and more! Our goal is to get as much as possible – ideally everything including the most likely bonus goals – finished before we launch, so we can turn this baby around for you in record time!
– Last but not least, we wanted to send a shout-out to another Kickstarter that we personally have nothing to do with, Black Sands! The folks behind it are telling some engaging stories of African/Egyptian mythology in books, comics, and now are creating a series pilot (with an eventual goal of a feature film). The style is essentially anime but with a distinctly and robustly pan-African flavor. These are adventure stories that don’t always rise up in the mainstream but they’re entertainingly told, beautifully illustrated, and made with the kind of passion and flair that warms our Legendary hearts. You can check out the Black Sands Entertainment Facebook page here if you’re interested in their comics and books, but we encourage you also to check out their Kickstarter – it’s got 5 days left and they are almost 90% of the way to their funding goal, so a good surge in the last few days can help push them over the top!
