On Friday 5E Day the Dark Druids are here!

Today we are pleased to present the latest legendary installment for forest-focused campaigns, Legendary Villains: Dark Druids (5E)! This terrifyingly terrific tome contains a wealth of new options to make those harmless hermits in the woods into a sinister and deadly menace to any heroes foolish enough to wander in the woods and wild! If your campaign walks on the dark side, your GM might even allow your PCs to take some of these new feats, archetypes, spells, and more, or they might keep all the goodness (and badness!) to themselves, with ready-made druidical enemies to drop into any campaign! You can grab this creepy character supplement right here at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon!

This killer compendium is an ideal companion to last week’s 5E Friday Fey-Day release, Beasts of Legend: Fairy Tale Creatures, featuring a dozen and one delightfully detailed creatures with powers and personality perfect for infusing the essence of the fey into your game! You also can grab that book at the  Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG and Amazon!

Of course, the Rule of Three is also a popular trope when you’re dealing with the fey realms, and yet a THIRD terrific fey-themed product is coming soon, Faerie Bargains (5E), which is in layout now! Check out the preview paragraph below to give you a foretaste of the fantastic fey flavor featured in this folio!

**************

The magic and mystery of the fey is on display in Faerie Bargains! From Rumpelstiltskin to Rapunzel, fairy tales, myths, and legends all over the world are replete with tales of bargains struck with the sublime and sometimes sinister magical creatures from the realms beyond. Long life, wealth beyond imagining, true love, or whatever your heart’s desire all wrapped up in a promise and a price that seems but a trifle, until the bargain comes due and the fair folk come to collect. Faerie Bargains provides you a richly detailed system for using this classic fantasy trope in your 5th Edition campaign. You can design your own faerie bargains or use one of the over 40 sample bargains provided, from bounty of the wilds and unseen assistants to woven wealth, silent metamorphosis, fey queen’s ransom, and one with the land! Each bargain grants a benefit once payment is made, of course, but you’ll also find rules for hidden conditions, escape clauses, tokens, and more, along with how to research and negotiate bargains with different kinds of fey and unique magical items you might obtain in a faerie bargain or make with fey assistance, like the cauldron of autumnal bounty and sword of vernal light. Whether your heroes want to trade their dreams for the charm of magic, a gift of blood for accursed mercy, or their sanity itself for inspired perfection, you’ll find an amazing array of mystical covenants that bring fantastic new flavor to the fey in your game!

**************

Of course, Pathfinder fans aren’t being left out in this flurry of fey-themed products, as Faerie Bargains is also coming soon for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, along with Forest Kingdom Archetypes, Royal Tournaments, and more! This is a fabulous time to be fey, whether you’re 5E or PF!

A Crisis is Coming!

The latest installment in our Legendary Beginnings all-ages adventure series is off to layout, coming your way soon for both Pathfinder and 5E, as Legendary newcomers Brian Suskind and Ben McFarland team up to bring you Crisis at Falling Spring Station!

Crisis at Falling Spring Station takes your heroes into a world of adventure! In the mountains at the western edge of the Kingdom of Threll, brave soldiers stand guard against the frightening creatures that dwell in the lands beyond. Falling Spring Station controls one of the passes leading through the mountains into the Westerlands and the Darkevale Forest, keeping the people of Threll safe. But a terrible illness has weakened the soldiers in this vital fort. After delivering medicine to help fight the disease, the heroes discover that there is more going on than just a simple illness. It’s up to them to put things right and find out what’s behind the strange happenings. What they uncover is a monstrous plot that threatens the safety of the whole kingdom. Can a small group of adventurers stand up to the mysterious Warlord of the North and his beastly army?

This 2nd to 3rd-level adventure is suitable for all ages using the standard Pathfinder Roleplaying Game or the boxed set for beginners, and it also goes very nicely with our other Legendary Beginnings adventures set in the world of Terralien, like Into the Feyweald, A Feast of Flavor, and the 5-part Trail of the Apprentice adventure saga!

A lovely day for Heroes!

Today we want to celebrate the good guys, and they have a lot to celebrate!  If you’ve been following the Book of Exalted Darkness 5E Kickstarter by Mike Myler and Savannah Broadway (you know, just to keep an eye on the dastardly villains), you already know that this incredible sinister decopunk campaign setting is nearly at its funding goal, but better still after having hit 120 backers it has unlocked the Book of Celestial Heroes as an add-on product, opening up an awesome array of options for the good guys who want to keep the world on the straight and narrow! This project has 10 days left to go, and we’ll be releasing ANOTHER free preview PDF as part of 5E Friday, so get ready for the Evil Primer! Sometimes heroes just need to know how to go bad!

When it comes to BIG heroes, the Mythic Hero’s Handbook is the cornerstone of the biggest project we’ve ever done (so far!), the magnificent Mythic Mania Kickstarter, and this incredible 336-page masterpiece is chock full of so much incredible material it’s hard to know where to start. Indispensable for running a mythic Pathfinder campaign, it also has a wealth of material that can be easily included in a non-mythic campaign wherever your heroes, villains, magic items, skills, traps, curses, psionics, or more need an injection of awesome. We’re calling out this book today because we thought we had sold out the very last copies we had, but in clearing out some storage this week we found about a dozen more copies of the book, the very last copies that exist! If you want a print copy of the magnificent Mythic Hero’s Handbook, now’s the time, because when these ones are gone, that’s the end of the road!

However, there’s even MORE good news about this book – at long last, the mythic trinity is complete for HeroLabThat’s right, after many long months of tireless effort, the COMPLETE Mythic Hero’s Handbook is now available directly from LoneWolf! If you’ve already ordered the book during the phased roll-out, you should have access to all parts of it now. Of course, you also can pick up the spectacular Mythic Spell Compendium and the marvelous Mythic Monster Manual too!

Last but not least, this coming weekend will be the final opportunity to pick up the Top 10 Heroes Bundle – a collection of 80 richly detailed characters for campaigns of every kind, from Gothic horror to Egyptian tombs and from fey forests and pirate seas to the far reaches of interstellar space! You get over 300 pages of fantastic 5-star awesome material for just $10!

Invade the Ocean and the Endless Void with Legendary Planet!

The water-world of Vereen is the target of an all-out interplanetary invasion by the dread Hegemony forces led by their elite bil’djooli hordes and corrupted klaven armies.

You can grab this incredible adventure and a massive PDF Art and Map Folio right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon, and the 5th Edition version should be on its way by the end of the month!

But wait, there’s more! In addition to the ongoing adventures in the Legendary Planet series, each coming complete with brand-new monsters, magic items and technology, planetary gazetteers, an ongoing sci-fi fiction saga, and bonus articles containing fantastic feats, archetypes, spells, and all manner of new rules elements, we also have the latest bonus product for Legendary Planet – Stargates by Tim Hitchcock! While some are content to let interplanetary portals and star-spanning gateways be mere plot devices, others love delving into the magic and mystery of these eldritch artifacts and the risks and rewards of tampering with a technology as old as time! You can pick up Stargates right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon!

Coming soon, some fantastic fey and excellent evil for 5E Friday, and next week, the triumphant return of MYTHIC MONDAY!!!

Finally, we wanted to give villains some love too.

Check it out coming soon! 

Long ago the world’s “heroes”–Tucker the Great & Co., The Order of the Shining Stone, and The Golden Redeemers–smote all of Askis’ evils, beating back corruption and nearly purging it from the planet. Centuries have passed since their victory and life has prospered, the modern world developing into a drone of well-meaning bureaucracy staffed by do-gooders and enjoyed by simpletons. All of their wonders are powered by a gift from deific beings that dwell in other realms, a substance known as inaequa that extends the lifespan of creatures with good in their hearts.

You, however, are not among them.

Your heart is as black as the night and twice as cold, the lengths to which you will go to achieve your goals much further than any of Askis’ weak-willed heroes would even consider. It is your destiny–no your right–to tear it all down, destroying civilization as a means to gain great power, exact terrible revenge, simply revel in the chaos of mayhem, or take the reigns of authority by force.
