P.S. Happy Thanksgiving! 



Seattle, WA, (Nov 22th 2016)Legendary Games announces today the release of the first SoundPacks for the Legendary Beginnings RPG line for young and beginner players. These SoundPacks are the first to be created in-house by a third-party publisher using Syrinscape’s SoundSet Creator, a powerful sound creation tool that allows gamers to make their own custom sounds for their adventures.

The first three SoundSets (Corbin Village, Tiller’s Marsh, and In the Cave) are available now and designed for The Bandit’s Cave, which is the first of five all-age adventure modules in the Trail of the Apprentice Adventure Path. Legendary Games also plans to supply more SoundPacks for the next four adventures: The King’s Curse, The Thieves’ Den, The Oracle’s Test, and The Wizard’s Dungeon.

Using the massive Syrinscape library of sounds and the revolutionary Syrinscape SoundSet Creator, Paris Crenshaw, Legendary Beginnings’ Creative Director, compiled, designed and mixed an immersive sound experience for players. “I was able to draw on the vast library of sound samples and effects that Syrinscape offers to create an entire sound pack for the campaign’s first adventure, The Bandit’s Cave,” said Crenshaw. “The creator allowed me to customize the volume, repetition rate, and other settings for the different sounds. The sound effects available helped me set the scene for the adventure’s key locations, and the amazing music makes an exciting backdrop for some of the most dramatic moments. I was even able to create special sound effects for things like lizardfolk, a giant spider, and an angry boar, and import those sounds into the creator to make this unique soundsets that fit the adventure perfectly.”

The Bandit’s Cave SoundPack gives you the complete audio solution when playing the Trail of the Apprentice #1: The Bandit’s Cave adventure. All the preparation is done for the GM, bringing every sound needed to enhance the experience right to the GM’s fingertips. “I’ve been a Syrinscape SuperSyrin subscriber since that option first came out and love what the app can do to enhance a gaming session. When I got my hands on the SoundSet Creator, I knew I had to make something that would work with the Trail of the Apprentice campaign,” Crenshaw said. The SoundPack provides sound effects and dramatic music to give life to all the encounters in this adventure.

The sound set encompasses a variety of sounds, from the peaceful, riverside village to exploring the orc’s hideout. There are thrilling effects for an orc raid, exploring the marsh, or rescuing a local hunter from quicksand. There are also epic sounds for battles with an angry boar, lizardfolk, hungry spiders, filthy rats, and the gang’s tough boss, along with his pet wolf.

Publisher Jason Nelson is dedicated to working with Crenshaw to create more content for children and had this to say about the line, “Legendary Beginnings are all-age adventures that are perfect for younger gamers as well as adults new to the hobby. They are not only exciting and fun to play; they also help you teach and learn the game as you go, building complexity as you try new things as a player and as a GM. From fairy forests to bandit kings, dragons and dungeons, wizards and warriors, Legendary Beginnings are great fun for gamers of every skill level. Give them a try and Make Your Game Legendary!”
