Another 5-star review for Legendary Games: Mythic Monsters: Demons!

In the midst of announcing new and upcoming Mythic Monsters products, a look back at the O.G. of this product line is in order, Mythic Monsters: Demonsthanks to a new 5-star review from Endzeitgeistwho says:

 

We kick this pdf off with notes on mythic demons crashing through bindings, bargaining and possessing mortals before diving headfirst into the mythic demons provided herein – from humble CR 2/MR 1 Quasits over Babau, Bodaks, Glabrezu, Hezrou, Incubus, Kalavakus, Nabassu, Elite Nabassu, Shadow Demon, Succubus all the way to the CR 25/MR 10 Balor, we get quite a solid array of statblocks for the respective demons, all mythified for your convenience and with thematically fitting abilities to boost – whether it’s the succubus revealing herself in abyssal glory (potentially quite literally), thus making all crash to the floor growling (and take cha-damage upon shaking it off),  an elite nabassus manifesting in conflagrations of fire upon being summoned (potentially turning those slain into mhorgs!) to the mythic klavakus that can use their mythic powers to command their slaves to commit suicide – these demons are NASTY with a capital “N” and come with appropriately twisted builds and abilities.

 

And then there is the Gulgerak – at CR 22/MR 9, these gigantic demonic siege engines are six-legged, two-headed wolves that sport chains on which lesser demons dangle for a both awe-inspiring and superbly deadly foe – including an origin-myth, description-fluff and an awesome full color artwork, the second apart from the cover artwork herein. An awesome creature that shows well why author Tom Philip’s name can be seen on various awesome supplements out there.

 

His only reservation about the product? That there just weren’t enough demons in it! Fear not, Endy, if the response to this product continues to be this enthusiastic, a sequel is very likely in the offing!

Fall Previews #6: Mythic Monsters: Mythos intro and TOC!

What You Will Find Inside Mythic Monsters: Mythos

 

Creatures from beyond the stars are relative newcomers in the grand scheme of monster lore, but they have a long history in fantasy RPGs; nearly as long as they’ve been around in horror games. The beauty of creatures of this alien mythos is that they are simultaneously impossibly ancient and futuristically foreign; whichever direction they lie in terms of flavor, they are something deeply and terribly other from the normal run-of-the-mill monsters PCs might encounter. They signal that something is fundamentally wrong in the universe, in a way that demonic irruptions or the walking dead or fire-breathing monstrosities just don’t quite match. All of these creatures have their place in the world, but the alien mythos is from somewhere else. They are a great unknown, their plans inscrutable, their numbers unimaginable, and their motivations unfathomable. They are not here for wealth, or power, or even adoration. Their twisted cultists offer up paeans of praise to beings that could scarcely care less about their feeble bleatings, but may reward them with power anyway as they continue infiltrating the world of sanity and normality with their ghastly servants. The mythic rules really provide the perfect springboard for taking these alien creatures and really showcasing their alien-ness, from the simple cerebric fungus to the titanic shoggoth, from alien masterminds like the moon-beasts to mythos minions like the new byakhee, Mythic Monsters: Mythos brings to you a great variety of alien horrors with CR from 4 to 23, and it just scratches the surface of the unearthly terrors that populate the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. And to top it off, an introduction to alien alchemy and elder signs, mythic style!
