Halloween is all about horror, and when you think horror gaming, you usually think vampires, werewolves, and all the Gothic trappings, but I think we all can agree that movies like Alien and The Thing are unquestionably horror, right?

A mundane mission leads to a marvelous discovery, which turns into a struggle to survive in an alien sanctuary inhabited by an insidious menace hunting good and evil alike… all while plummeting toward a fiery doom! Which way do your heroes want to die?

Get it today at the Legendary Games webstore or pick it up this weekend in wide release!

But wait, THERE’S MORE! 

We’ve already announced that Occult Character Codex: Spiritualists is on the way and should be available by this weekend, with heroic and hateful spirit-channelers alike. However, when it comes to classes we are also pleased to announce the Legendary debut of Jenny Jarzabski later this month with our latest love letter to villains: Legendary Villains: Evil Clerics! From the introduction to this book:

Evil clerics, though not always a GM’s go-to villain, are plentiful in fantasy games. Myriad options in the form of archetypes and domains already exist, but this book plumbs far deeper and darker depths in the varied types of evil clerics and the roles they can play as villains in a campaign. A new prestige class, the sinweaver, introduces an unusual take on the classic cleric, while new archetypes and the new disease domain provide additional ways to customize and augment the powers of evil clerics. The avatar of evil feat tree brings a cleric one step closer to divinity, variant channeling feats add to any cleric’s bag of tricks, and the Craft Cursed Item feat gives mischievous clerics a new way to torment their victims. In addition, a novel selection of items and spells stand ready to outfit an evil cleric with an arsenal of malicious magic, some of them connected to dark and blasphemous books of vile darkness and librams of ineffable damnation.

This book is in editing now, with some bonus material being added that should be very interesting to fans of our Gothic Grimoires series from the Gothic Horror AP Plug-Ins. You should expect to see this one coming your way the last week of October.


There are so many mythic monsters that merit mention in the month of October, but when it comes to exploring the darkest and deadliest monsters around, how can you get darker than Mythic Monsters: Shadow! Brought to you by the tag-team of Jason Nelson and Jeff Lee, peer into the blackest depths of the bestiary and feast your eyes on the enemies to come later this month!

Mythic Monsters: Shadow brings you a dozen and one shadowy sneaks from the realms of endless nocturn. Whether lurking in the dark and hidden places beneath the ground or emerging from beshadowed realms far beyond this mortal coil, there is something terribly cool about creatures of raw and endless darkness. From the sleek and sinister unseelie realms to the coiling, roiling, pits of eternal night, creatures of shadow have always captured our imagination, whether they are simply misunderstood dwellers in darkness or truly villains of the deepest dye. From CR 3 to 25, we bring you the living and the dead that live beyond the light, from simple shadows seeking to blot out the light and drink your life to towering nightwalkers, the devastating heralds of annihilation. The secretive and stealthy dark creepers and dark stalkers lurk within these pages, alongside the misshapen umbral shepherds and the terrifying tenebrous worms that mature into beautiful but deadly gloomwings. A quartet of killer kytons are found, from the bloodthirsty lampadarius and the vivisecting interlocutor to the sinister sacristan and the horrid eremite lords of the kyton race. Finally, the umbral dragon graces these pages with its sleek shimmer-gloom, breathing darkness and devouring light. As if a dozen existing monsters were not enough, the mysterious shadowpeople exist forever on the edge of sight, their motives as much an enigma as their true face and form. For heroes or villains wishing to tame the shadow, we also present a mythic version of the shadowdancer prestige class, with mythic versions of each and every class feature!




Taking the 5th!

It’s time to preview our fall releases for 5E! 

Legendary Games was one of the first 3PPs to offer 5th Edition supplements, with a several low-level adventures available in PDF and print as early as GenCon 2014! We began with the 1st-level horror-themed adventures The Murmuring Fountain and The Fiddler’s Lament (which we then made into a two-adventure print and PDF compilation, The Haunted Hamlet of Raven’s Hill) and followed up with the overland caravan adventure, Road to Destiny, for 2nd level characters.

The Haunted Hamlet of Raven's Hill (cover)



The response was very positive indeed, so much so that we created our Legendary Planet Kickstarter with versions for both 5th Edition and Pathfinder. As the second adventure, To Worlds Unknown, is nearing the finish line, we’ll be releasing the Legendary Planet Player’s Guide and The Assimilation Strain for both systems to the general public.

5th Edition cover

But there is plenty more coming and SOON for 5th Edition fans! Our 5th Edition team has been hard at work and we will soon be offering you an array of adventures and more! The following products are aimed to release this month!

The Baleful Coven is a 6th-level adventure themed around witches, revenge, and a nightmare dream-realm that threatens to ensnare your heroes and bring you to ruin! This dynamic adventure shows that an adventure is never as simple as just killing the bad guy, and your enemies are not so quick to forgive or forget the dead left in your wake. A mother’s love is undying, but so too is her hate. In her eyes, you are murderers, and she will gather dark sisters from far abroad to draw you into a mystic nightmare from which there will be no escape!

Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex is a collection of 10 richly detailed monsters of the taiga and tundra, dwellers in the chill boreal expanse of the desolate northlands. Each creature has an array of interesting abilities, but beyond that each comes with legends and lore that make you want to drop them into your campaign, building whole adventure arcs around them. This product also comes with amazing artwork and printable fold-up paper minis for each creature.

In November, we look forward to releasing even more 5E goodness!

Beasts of Legend: Boreal Bestiary is a companion volume to the Coldwood Codex, with over a dozen monsters and variants that prowl the harsh and bitter climes of north. From fey spirits hungry and cruel to hard-hearted hunters and feral giants, even the tundra itself comes alive with menace in its mind and hate in its heart. Drawing upon real-world folklore and legends as well as classic tropes of fantasy and horror, the Boreal Bestiary presents richly developed creatures replete with inventive abilities alongside detailed lore and ecology, all designed by the top creative minds in the business.

Cold Mountain is a 4th-level adventure in which love and death walk hand in hand when mortals cross paths with the immortal fey. Cruelty and loss bring the wrath of nature down upon the hill clans along the savage frontier, and the heroes are drawn into a lush, atmospheric journey into the dangers and mysteries of the untamed wild.

And, just in case you thought we were all about frozen forests and fearsome foes, we should also have the first in our Islands of Plunder series of pirate-themed adventures coming around the end of November or the beginning of December, starting with…

Spices and Flesh, a 4th-level adventure full of mystery and peril upon the high seas and below the waves, incorporating investigation and negotiation alongside deadly danger on board ship and among the deadly reefs below. A chance encounter with Captain Craw and the good ship Tamarind seems like the latter, a friendly crew of spice traders offering warm hospitality. Yet all is not as it seems, as the Tamarind trades in a far different and more terrible cargo on a dangerous course into the hands of the legendary Shayonna the Gaunt and her desolate reef! Can your heroes uncover the Tamarind’s deadly secret before they become the latest prizes sent to the clutches of the sea witch?

This is, of course, in addition to the Legendary Planet adventures we’ll be releasing throughout the coming months, as we get new adventures out to our Kickstarter backers and make the earlier adventures available to you! This fall is a great time to Take the 5th with Legendary Games!


Mythic Magic didn’t end with the Mania!

We are pleased at Legendary Games to begin the next generation of mythic products, ones that build upon and go beyond the original product lines that led up to the MYTHIC MANIA Project. The first of these is now here, Mythic Magic: Advanced Spells III, presenting mythic versions of all 134 spells in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Advanced Class Guide!  You can pick up this 30-page compendium of mythic magic at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG!



Of course, this book is hardly the end of the line. It will be joined around the end of October by the next in the series, Mythic Magic: Occult Spells by Amanda Hamon Kunz, bringing you mythic versions of the psychic, scary, and spectacular spells in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Occult Adventures!  As next spring brings us Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Intrigue, you can be sure that Mythic Magic: Intrigue Spells will not be far behind!

And quite apart from Mythic Magic, we are gearing up a whole new series of Mythic Monsters as well, which unlike the first 30 installments in that series are entirely new material, with very rare exceptions. Coming first, in a race to the fiendish finish, are Mythic Monsters: Daemons and Mythic Monsters: Shadow. Which one gets here first will depend on art and layout, but we hope to release BOTH before the end of October!
