Winter Is Coming… Legendary Style!

Tonight will be the longest night of the year, and tomorrow marks the official start of winter. Thus far in December, Legendary Games has been playing against type, releasing products ranging from our first family-friendly adventure Into the Feyweald to creepy psychics in Occult Character Codex: Occultists, to a slew of products suited to the sizzling sands of ancient empires, like Mythic Monsters: Egypt and THREE new Egyptian-themed adventures all rapidly approaching release. But make no mistake, WINTER IS COMING!

Zakhar - 7

While some of our product lines are approaching their conclusion, we are pleased to announce the advent of a new line of Adventure Path Plug-Ins ideally suited for the Witches of Winter AP as well as any campaign that ventures into the cold places of the world (or to other worlds entirely), especially those drawing up on the legends and lore of Eastern Europe (and a bit of Scandinavia thrown in as well). These Winter AP Plug-Ins will be kicking off in January with the latest entry in our fantastic Heroes series, the first in this line penned by a hand other than Legendary co-founder Neil Spicer. These Winter Heroes instead spring from the marvelous mind of Liz Courts! No stranger to LG, Liz laid out a number of our products in 2012, but this will mark her authorial debut, and we are delighted to bring her love for the subject matter and design skills to the table, along with an assortment of amazing artwork from Bob Greyvenstein, who also delivered the knockout designs you’ve seen in Metal Heroes and Nautical Heroes

Next in line, we’ll be bringing you the Treasury of Winter, a collection of marvelous magic items themed for the depths of winter. From cheery items like the candle-crown of holly, welcome wreath, and festive fox fur to the sinister howling horn and Krampus bag, you’ll find an assortment of items drawn from cultures that dwell in the boreal climes where summer is but a distant dream. Following that, Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches is slated to follow, and yet more to come. If you love the sight of falling snow and the howl of hungry wolves, it is time to celebrate. Winter is not just coming, the bleak midwinter is practically here!

Nothing says December like ANCIENT EGYPT!

makeyourgamelegendary - FesteredSunsmallcover

If you’re feeling chilled, cast your mind into the warm sands and dusty ruins of civilizations once great and mighty, and whose secrets still may rule the world! First of all, this week’s TWO$DAY product of the week, Tomb Raiders, is available this week for just 2 dollars right here at the Legendary Games webstore!

But the big news is the avalanche of Egyptian awesomeness that is about to arrive! The first to be coming your way by this Friday will be Mythic Monsters: Egypt, by Jason Nelson, Alex Riggs, Mike D. Welham, and featuring the Legendary debut of Jen Page.

Mythic Monsters: Egypt brings you a dozen and one mythological monsters from the burning sands, verdant rivers, and crumbling ruins of ancient pharaohs. Egyptian myths and legends are some of the oldest in the world and influenced the religious and cultural traditions of many kingdoms and empires that followed. While they sometimes were seen as an ancient, exotic, and even decadent culture by the younger kingdoms, their monuments were so titanic, their artistry and iconography so vivid, and their tales and lore so intricate and often so strange that they enjoyed a sort of dual legendarium. The gods and monsters native to the tales of Egypt were one thing, and one that evolved over dynasties spanning milennia, but on top of their own indigenous stories Egypt became a source for all things mysterious. From the classical Greeks to Lovecraftian horror and beyond, any monster, magic, or mystery became more exotic and esoteric when its roots were traced to Egypt, and the same is true when invoking the tropes of Egypt in a fantasy setting or campaign.


Mythic Monsters: Egypt contains an assortment of amazing adversaries for your heroes, ranging from CR 4 to 17, starting with a squadron of sphinxes to confront your adventuring heroes from the hungry hunting hieracosphinx to the crass but clever criosphinx and the proud and noble androsphinx. Not all Egyptian monsters are adversaries, as honorable characters may find allies in the winged maftet and the wise two-headed uraeus. Others are every inch a menace, from hateful werecrocodiles and sinister sha and sacred sha carrying plagues in their wake to deadly scavenging scarab swarms. Of course, much of the Egyptian legendarium in popular and fantasy culture centers around tombs and ruins, and mummies are far from the only inhabitants of the necropolis, as elemental ahkhats are literally a part of the buildings they guard, while mummified cursed kings and eternally vigilant pharaonic guardians guard their domains with jealous and zealous care. As if a dozen existing monsters were not enough, the vicious corpse-eating ammuts sit in judgment on the dead and the damned. For heroes that want to embody that Egyptian vibe for themselves, this book also provides a mythic version of the treasure-hunting archaeologist bard and the legendary living monolith prestige class, anointed with a sacred stone by the ancient sphinx to serve as guardians extraordinaire.


NEXT UP we have not one, not two, but THREE adventures (we might end up combining the final two for a print compilation)!

Beneath the Festered Sun by Pedro Coelho

When a heretical priestess met execution at the hands of conspirators, an immortal consort vowed to carry out her dying curse. Now, after centuries of plotting and waiting, the skies finally align to create the perfect conditions for retribution. Amid the gossip and excitation concerning an extraordinary celestial event, one voice alerts deaf ears to the upcoming danger, only to disappear just as an agonizing vulnerability to daylight strikes the population. Overwhelmed, the authorities call upon reinforcements for the thinned out guard, but can the unexpected heroes stop a vengeance set in motion ages ago? To save the soul of a city, they must confront its present and past and destroy the various iterations of a broken enemy—all before the twilight of the Festered Sun.

Beneath the Festered Sun is an adventure path plug-in designed for 3rd-level characters to complement the Egyptian Themed Adventure Path. This sandbox adventure pitches the PCs against an ancient curse, offering an intriguing interlude to the exploration of the necropolis of Owot-ti. The story takes place right before the PCs venture into the third and final exploration site, in the first module of the Egyptian Themed Adventure Path.

The Hidden Temple of Apep and The Library of Thoth by Alex Riggs.

Each of these adventures explores ancient and secret temples of the old gods of Egypt. The Hidden Temple of Apep is an adventure for characters of 8th to 10th level that centers on the hidden lair of a murderous serpent cult that is terrorizing the lands around, while The Library of Thoth is for 6th-8th level characters and centers on a long-lost repository of ancient wisdom and eldritch magical secrets.

We are waiting for maps and 2 or 3 pieces of art for the above adventures, but writing is complete and they are being edited now. I would expect one of them to be ready by the end of this month and the other two likely ready for action in January.


We’ve assigned some new contributors to pick up the torch on Curses and Mythic Monsters: Africa, so work has resumed on those books and I’ll keep you abreast of developments as that book gets closer to completion! Come closer into the depths of my tomb and see…

A Legendary Beginning for new gamers!

As the year comes to a close, we are delighted to unveil several new product lines, the first of which is Legendary Beginnings, a set of adventures and products for (surprise!) beginning gamers. This includes friends or relatives who have never sat down to throw dice, but they are especially suited for younger gamers just starting out in the hobby. Our initial offering is on final approach, so let me introduce it for you! - Into the Feyweald (cover)

Into the Feyweald takes your heroes into a world of adventure in the realms of faerie! Guests at the fairy queen Pryozha’s celebration feast, the festivities are interrupted by the creepy, crawly spider-riders serving the wicked witches of the woods! You must take up the quest to find the hidden grove where Yaldira the witch works her dark magic, turning the forest sickly and rotten, battling her evil minions that menace the creatures of the wood. There, in the dark pits of her lair, you must stop her from awakening her cruel queen from her crystal tomb and save the woodland realm! This 1st-level adventure is suitable for a standard Pathfinder game or one using the boxed set for beginners.


Featuring the Legendary Games debut of Paris Crenshaw, who developed and playtested this adventure with his Girl Scout troop, Into the Feyweald is delightful romp through the fairy woods that will delight experienced games as well as newbies. Legendary Beginnings are immersive adventures that sacrifice none of the fun and richness you’ve come to expect from Pathfinder adventures by Legendary Games while taking a tone and artistic style that makes them suitable for all ages.


Into the Feyweald is in layout now, awaiting only the final maps, and should be available by next week. We hope you’ll be looking forward to more Legendary Beginnings for the new gamers in your family, friends, schools, youth groups, scout troops, and any new gamers looking for a fun and accessible adventure to give the hobby a try!
