A Year in Review

This was first published on Flames Rising.

A Legendary 2016…in Review

This was an exciting year for the Legendary Games team, as we continued to broaden our reach and our product offerings. We published a total of 135 products, including 39 for 5th Edition and the remainder for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Some of these products were short PDFs and free supplements, but we still created over 100 full-size supplements, offering most in print as well as PDF, with a growing selection of our products available on virtual tabletops like d20Pro and Fantasy Grounds as well as on HeroLab! Legendary Games has published a huge array of products in the past year, including adventures, bestiaries, magic items, class supplements, setting material, and more, from 3-page Mythic Minis to the 300+ page Trail of the Apprentice Adventure Saga for Pathfinder and 5E.

The Trail of the Apprentice project is an adventure series aimed specifically at new and younger players, taking them from 1st to 5th level in a series of five adventures of growing complexity, helping them to learn not just the rules of the game but also the way to play a tabletop RPG. We launched this project with the aid of Kickstarter, funding at well over triple our initial goal and delivering the entire project in less than six months, including deluxe books, customized character sheets and swag, and character and creature cards. We have also used the Trail of the Apprentice saga and the growing Legendary Beginnings product line to host our first 5th Edition Summer Camp and to run mini-adventure delves at conventions. We are delighted to be part of growing the hobby and passing down the best games around to the next generation of gamers.

Legendary Games is an independent RPG publisher based in Seattle, Washington, but we are actively involved in the convention circuit, hosting booths and events at PaizoCon (including our second-annual massive multi-table Legendary Planet team event), GenCon, WolfCon, Gamehole Con, and the online AetherCon. We love getting in touch with fans directly and introducing them to our products, as well as sitting down and throwing dice with them! We are proud to offer support for many local conventions even when we cannot physically attend, and this year we provided prize support to 72 local cons (, as well as for RPG contests like Iron GM, the Four Horsemen Open at GenCon, and Here Be Monsters!

In 2016 we were able to finish up several long-running projects, including finalizing the HeroLab additions to our massive three-hardback expansion to the Pathfinder mythic rules (, which we continue to support in our ongoing Mythic Monsters, Mythic Minis, and Mythic Magic product lines. We also delivered the cyberpunk/supers Hypercorps 2099 setting and companion adventures, including our first novella, An Undying Contract, and launched and funded the Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland expansion late this year.

Our last big project still in progress is the epic star-spanning Legendary Planet adventure saga, a sword-and-planet campaign for Pathfinder and 5E, featuring 100+ page adventures with bestiaries of new monsters, gazetteers of new worlds, new magic items, bonus articles, and an ongoing fiction saga to help flesh out the world. This ambitious project has gone more slowly than we would like, but with new additions to the development team we’ve managed to break through some logjams and are getting back on schedule, with an aim firmly in view of having the final hardback compilation available for GenCon 2017!

Legendary Games has a history of providing focused support on different campaign themes, with entire product lines devoted to Gothic Horror, Far East, Egyptian, Righteous Crusade, Metal Gods (sci-fi/fantasy), Pirate, Occult, Red Throne (urban intrigue), River Kings (and faerie forests), Mythos, and Winter-themed campaigns. These products are ideal supplements for the similarly themed official Adventure Paths from Paizo, Inc., but work equally well in any campaign that touches on the same genres. Our first Kickstarter project back in 2013 was the Gothic Campaign Compendium, taking 17 separate products combining them into a beautiful hardback. We are nearing completion on several more product lines, and we are definitely looking at running one or more similar projects to create hardback compilations for some of our other product lines in the new year.

We also are greatly expanding our offering of class-focused supplements for both heroes and villains. In addition to past heroic products focused on rogues, paladins, and swashbucklers, and villainous books dealing with antipaladins, evil clerics, and dark druids, 2016 brought us Legendary Kineticists and Legendary Vigilantes, plus Legendary Villains: Vigilantes. It also saw our first two hybrid classes, with the Kinetic Shinobi and Deadeye Hexer. We’ll continue offering amazing class support in the new year, with Legendary Monks and Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza already in layout and Legendary Fighters, Legendary Gunslingers, Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches, and Legendary Hybrids: Doomguard coming soon thereafter. This is in addition to thematic class-focused products like Asian Archetypes: Martial and Asian Archetypes: Magical!

Adventures aplenty await as well, from The Hero’s Ritual to On the Siberian Line, along with bestiaries like Mythic Monsters: Greek, Mythic Monsters: Middle East, and Mythic Monsters: Celtic, along with Beasts of Legend: Medium Monsters for when you want powerful monsters that aren’t just high-level NPCs but also aren’t titanic terrors twenty feet tall! Magic will also be found in plenty with terrific supplements like Treasury of the City and the Asian Spell Compendium!

A life of adventure doesn’t begin and end in the dungeon, however, and we’ve long been huge fans of supporting the kingdom-building and mass combat system for Pathfinder. This year, we brought that same system to 5th Edition with Kingdoms (5E), and we have created 5E versions of our hit Ultimate Rulership, Ultimate Battle, and Ultimate War books. Of course, we’re still expanding the system for Pathfinder as well, with Ultimate Factions in layout now and Ultimate Armies still on the docket for completion this year.

For gamers who enjoy a wide variety of systems, we are also pleased to announce that in 2017 we will be offering products for the Savage Worlds game system, starting with our series of pirate adventures. We’ve been looking forward to making our adventures available for this system.

To sum up, 2016 has been a tremendously productive year for Legendary Games. Even at that, we didn’t complete everything we wanted to get done, but we are pleased with our progress and always keep our goals and our standards at the highest level. It’s part of our core values as a company: Rule #1: We write what we want, how we want, when we want. Rule #2: Always Be Awesome. We’ve got a long history of working with incredibly talented and experienced writers, but this year we’ve also brought in some new contributors whose talents make up for a lack of experience. There is great diversity out there in the gaming world, and Legendary Games is happy to be a part of making sure that diversity shows up in the game industry as well, with authors and artists from all walks of life and all over the world.

Thanks to every one of our team for all their hard work in making our products Legendary, and to all of our customers for supporting us in the work we do. Happy gaming to all, and to all a great 2017!

Faerie Mysteries-1


Legendary Monks is DONE!

Well, the manuscript is complete anyway! We are reviewing it with the team for any final modifications, getting art together, and so on, but we are on target for release next week!


This hefty supplement will likely end up around 40-45 pages, and it plays with monkish tropes from the Far East as well as other parts of Asia, plus Western monastic traditions, from meditative disciplines and psychic powers to purely martial mastery with punishing power and superlative speed. For a bit of a preview:

Table of Contents



Honor and Vows

Ki and Psychic Power

Ki Tattoos

Ki Tomes

You’ll find within these pages 11 new archetypes for traditional and unchained monks, 10 new monk vows, qinggong monk rules for psychic and occult powers, nearly 3 dozen monk tattoos, and over 20 new monk feats. This incredible resource for monks by Jason Nelson, Clinton J. Boomer, and Jesse Benner will leave your monks salivating over the incredible options within. For a sneak peek, perhaps a taste of some of the Speed Stunts available to the super-speed sprinting Tempest archetype:

Speed Stunts: At 4th level and every 2 levels thereafter, a tempest gains one of the following abilities. No ability can be selected more than once. This replaces ki powers.

Barrage Barrier (Ex): The tempest can spend 2 points from his ki pool as a move action to create a defensive perimeter against ranged attacks directed at his allies. Until the beginning of his next turn, whenever an enemy makes a ranged attack against an ally, the tempest can move to a square in a direct line between the attacker and the target and attempt a Reflex save against a DC equal to the attack roll of the ranged attack. If the save succeeds, the attack is harmlessly deflected. He must move at least 5 feet in between each attack he attempts to deflect, and the movement taken by the tempest while using this ability cannot exceed his speed. This movement provokes attacks of opportunity. The maximum number of ranged attacks he can attempt to deflect each round is equal to his Wisdom modifier. A tempest must be at least 8th level before selecting this speed stunt.

Electrostatic Discharge (Su): The tempest can spend 2 points from his ki pool when using the charge or run action to build up a potent electrical charge that deals 5d6 points of electrical damage plus 1 point per monk level. If charging, the tempest can deliver this electrical charge as part of an unarmed strike or as a melee touch attack in place of his normal charge attack. If he is running, he can hold the charge until his next turn and deliver the electrostatic discharge as part of an unarmed strike or as a melee touch attack at any point before the end of his next turn. Rather than using it to augment a melee attack, as a swift action the tempest can hurl it at a target within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack dealing 5d6 points of electricity damage at any point before the end of his next turn.

Alternatively, the tempest can use this built-up static electricity to infuse his body with power, gaining the benefits of haste until the end of his next turn. While charged in this fashion, any creature striking the tempest with a natural weapon, unarmed strike, or melee touch attack takes 1d6 points of electricity damage with each hit.

When a tempest uses this ability, any electricity damage he takes before the end of his next turn is reduced by an amount equal to twice his monk level.

A tempest must be at least 8th level before selecting this speed stunt.

Fast-moving Flanker (Ex): During any round in which a tempest moves at least 10 feet, he can designate any one spaces he occupies at any point during his move as his position for the purpose of providing flanking to allies or giving or receiving the benefit of the aid another action. This is in addition to his actual position at the point when an ally makes an attack. If he expends 1 point from his ki pool, he can designate a number of spaces equal to his Wisdom modifier (minimum 1) as his position for this purpose. He can use this ability to provide flanking to himself. A tempest must be at least 4th level before selecting this speed stunt.

Faster than the Naked Eye (Ex): When the tempest uses the run or withdraw action, he can make a Stealth check to hide even if he has no cover or concealment or is being directly observed. He remains hidden until the beginning of his next turn, at which point he can make a new Stealth check to remain hidden. Attacking automatically reveals the tempest until the beginning of his next turn. A tempest must be at least 8th level before selecting this speed stunt.


It’s ROBOT Time!

This week’s latest release from Legendary Games is a fantastic new class supplement by Jeff Lee, featuring a full-sized 20-level alternate class in The Robot Summoner! This variant on the unchained summoner is the steel soul, who wields power by tapping into microscopic nanite surges and unleashes mechanical manipulations of every kind. In place of an eidolon shaped from the raw stuff of the outer planes, the steel soul creates and controls a devastating robot companion, with nearly 50 awesome upgrades! This class is a perfect fit for a sci-fi fantasy mash-up campaign, whether you’re adding a technological twist to your game or playing a full-fledged adventure saga like Metal Gods or even our own swashbuckling sword-and-planet Legendary Planet saga! You can pick up this 24-page PDF for just 4.99 (with print versions also available at most outlets) at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPGand soon at Amazon as well!


Continuing the robot theme, we are equally excited to announce Mythic Monsters: Robots as our TWO$DAY product of the week, fresh off a fantastic 5-star-seal-of-approval review by Endzeitgeist, who called it one of the very best in the illustrious history of this fantastic series. If you want some amazing mechanical menaces for your Pathfinder campaign ranging from CR 1 to 20, with bonus material to boot, grab it today at the Legendary Games webstore for just $2!

Robots cover (small)

Last but not least, since good things come in threes, we have a third technological treat for you, and this one’s an even better deal – IT’S FREE!!! We are sponsoring the Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland Kickstarter to expand that cyberpunk/supers setting in a perfectly postapocalyptic direction for 5E, and as part of that we are presenting a series of free preview PDFs! Last week we released the Wastelands Primer and this week we follow it up with The Doctor, a 20-level class of marvelous mad science! Check them out and consider backing the campaign!



The Tombs are FINAL – but look what else is coming soon!

We are delighted to debut our latest Egyptian-themed Pathfinder accessory with Ancient Tombs! This 36-page spectacular features tons of tables for generating your a variety of detailed relics and riches, whether the grave goods of a lowly commoner or the resplendent resting place of a mighty king, plus templates, traps, treasures, constructs, guardians, feats, spells, and more! You can grab this fantastic book right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand Amazon


While this brings our Egyptian Plug-Ins line to a close, we are closing in on some major new expansions to our Ultimate Plug-Ins line. First and foremost, Ultimate War (5E) is just about done in layout and should be ready to release this weekend for all 5E fans. Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate is nearly finished with the manuscript for the dynamic new Ultimate Factions, featuring a robust expansion of the kingdom-building rules detailing what the different power groups within the heroes’ kingdom do in and around the kingdom, focusing on alliances and rivalries, diplomacy and subterfuge. Ultimate Armies is on the horizon, but for now warfare must wait while subtler forms of intrigue take center stage, first for Pathfinder and soon after for 5E as well!


Coming next week we are reaching both into the future and the past. The latest installment in our Metal Gods Plug-Ins is ready for you and we are excited to bring you The Robot Summoner by Jeff Lee, featuring an alternate class to the unchained summoner for Pathfinder focused on technology, super-science, and nanite and robot minions rather than an outsider eidolon from far distant planes!


We also are nearing completion on the manuscript for Mythic Monsters: Greek, with the final few monsters getting pulled together. It’s a bit of a battle to see whether this one or Mythic Monsters: Elementals will be next to go public for you, but we just wanted to share Tanyaporn Sangsnit’s dynamic cover!


Finally, big things are afoot for our Legendary Planet backers, as they are eyeballs deep in the exclusive beta review for Confederates of the Shattered Zone, and we are rocking and rolling towards hopefully having that adventure *and* Dead Vault Descent available by the end of the month!


Last chance for giant 5E savings – first chance for more NEW 5E stuff!

We are almost to the end of our epic 20 FOR 20 sale – 20 5th Edition PDFs for just $20, featuring over 550 pages of fantastic 5E adventures and accessories – available at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG! This sale runs only through the end of November, so you’ve got just 24 hours left to save HUGE!


However, that’s hardly to say we don’t have some amazing stuff coming your way in December for 5th Edition! First and foremost we have the latest installment in our hit series of kingdom building and mass combat supplements coming this Friday, Ultimate War! This spectacular expansion to mass combat brings a unified system of mass combat developed in Kingdoms and Ultimate Battle and ties it together with combat in the seas and skies, as well as siege warfare, magical siege weapons, new tactics and command boons, and even a modular combined arms approach to unit construction.


If you are ready to venture outside the realms of traditional fantasy, we also have new installments in our epic Legendary Planet sword-and-planet sci-fi/fantasy adventure saga in production right now, including the exploring the endless catacombs of tidally locked world inhabited by lifeless undead and deathless construct races in Dead Vault Descent, and the sprawling asteroid mines of the neo-fascist cyborg Confederates of the Shattered Zone! We also have another sci-fi/fantasy crossover adventure for 13th-level characters in the pulse-pounding Starfall – a loving tribute to Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, Alien, and The Thing!

Finally, speaking of brand-new 5E content that crosses genre boundaries, we are pleased to be sponsoring a new Kickstarter project to expand the post-apocalyptic sci-fi/supers/cyberpunk world of Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland! You can grab a free 5E Primer for the base Hypercorps 2099 setting, and now you can download a new free Wasteland Primer for the Wasteland expansion, with two more FREE preview PDFs coming next week and the week following! Check it out!
