Good and Evil and 5E Friday!

We are delighted with the great response to our Book of Exalted Darkness and Book of Celestial Heroes books for 5E, and so it seems are you, with multiple 5-star reviews already coming in! These two books combine for a massive 700 pages of glorious goodness and ineffable evil for 5th Edition, all set in the fantastic decopunk world of Askis. However delightful that setting is, however, some folks just want an encyclopedia of evil options for their own home game, whether for vile villains or to create their own evil-themed campaign setting, and for those people we are proud to present the Book of True Evil for 5E, which takes all the fiendish and fearsome character options, classes, spells, magic items, feats, equipment, and other rules elements from the Book of Exalted Darkness and present them to you in a setting-neutral 164-page book that is wall to wall mechanics and rules resources! If you want the complete package of everything, including tons of incredible setting material, adventures, and more, grab the 414-page Book of Exalted Darkness. If you only need the mechanics, or if you’re looking for a terrific resource to provide to your players without giving away all the setting secrets and adventure spoilers, grab a copy of the Book of True Evil today at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, and DrivethruRPG!

You don’t want to forget the good guys, though, so by all means also grab a copy of the spectacular 286-page Book of Celestial Heroes to give them all the awesome options they need to stand in the breach against every villain of the deepest dye! Grab it today at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG!

Last but not least, we are celebrating the release of the fantastic Pirate Campaign Compendium to our Kickstarter backers for this week. The Pathfinder version is now making its way through the print approvals process and meanwhile our 5E dev team is hard at work getting that version of the book ready for you next month. Meanwhile, you can get a foretaste of the joys to come with the incredible Ultimate Ships for 5E, containing a bushel of rules for both simple and advanced ship-to-ship combat, modular ship design and modification, and dynamic yet easy-to-play fleet battle rules for bringing nautical action to your 5E campaign!

We’ll be launching it for general release at PaizoCon 2018, so look for it coming soon, and prepare for the 5E and Starfinder versions of the Alien Bestiary coming your way soon and with even MORE amazing monsters!

And did I mention PIRATES? Our Pirate Campaign Compendium Kickstarter just concluded in February, and we are already juuuuuust about ready to drop the 500+ pages of pirate goodness on our Pathfinder backers hopefully tonight or tomorrow. We are already working on layout for the completed portions of the book while we wait for the last couple of chapters to come back from our dev team, and we expect to have that version ready for our backers next month. We are excited to get these coming your way soon (along with the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium, with the books somewhere en route to us on the ocean), and me grinding along as I can to get the final Legendary Planet adventure out the door… To Kill a Star!

A very good 5E Friday – and Starfinder Saturday!

One of our most popular products recently has been the truly MASSIVE and malevolent 414-page Book of Exalted Darkness (5E)bringing you a wealth of wickedness in terms of rules and options for evil characters and campaigns, as well as the gloriously gonzo decopunk world of Aksis. Some of you fans have asked for more about that world, and what about the good guys there… and so ye shall receive. Coming tomorrow for your reading and playing pleasure, a truly blessed book, the Book of Celestial Heroes, and you can get it today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG

The demigod Celestial Heroes have conquered the world and raised civilization to precipitous heights but only YOU can save it from destruction!

On the eve of evil’s twilight as malevolence nearly became undone on the decopunk utopia of Askis the terrible machinations of rogue mad scientists instilled a vein of corruption throughout the populace. Though they are few these malcontents are irreprensibly vile and in tandem with the foul minds that touched their nascent souls with evil, the world once more needs heroes.

You are one such hero!

What’s in the Book of Celestial Heroes?

  • The goody-two shoes twin of the Book of Exalted Darkness
  • Two new classes–the Exemplar (a hero all about glory) and the revised Feywalker (when flight and fancy are more important)–along with holy archetypes for every class
  • Holy spells
  • Holy rituals
  • Holy feats
  • Heck, there’s even a holy hand grenade (which explodes on the count of 3–not 5, but 3)
  • The decopunk utopia world and Spheres of Askis, great works the PCs must bolster to save civilization from destruction
  • Tailored magic items that become more powerful as an adventurer gains prowess
  • Equipment and inaequa-technology that run the gamut from flashlights to jetpacks and locomotives (along with vehicular combat rules)
  • All the poisons plus a few new ones, diseases galore, and extra madness and insanities
  • Six powerful mad scientist villains each with their own lackeys and lairs joining more than 50 NPCs and monsters
  • Searching the River Styx, a scaling adventure for PCs of 3rd-16th level and just the right thing when the group goes down from an evil TPK!

Rise to the challenge of true goodness and mercy in this 286-page blessed book for 5th Edition today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Of course, that’s not all. Our layout team is juuuuuuuuuuuust about done with about a THOUSAND PAGES (not even kidding) of incredible supplements coming your way in the next week or so, but we are sending off the Alien Bestiary Companion to our Kickstarter backers this weekend, and are inches away from doing the same with the Pathfinder version of the Pirate Campaign Compendium. Best of all, RIGHT NOW you can grab the latest incredible installment in the spectacular Legendary Planet adventure saga for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game with Matt Goodall’s love letter to deathless despots, robotic oracles, tidally locked temporal disasters, and high-class heists in Dead Vault Descent, a 106-page mega-module for 8th-10th level characters! You can get it everywhere on Monday, but right now you can get it exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore!

Of course, that’s not all! Legendary Planet: Dead Vault Descent (Starfinder) is in layout now and should be ready for release by the end of next week! The incredible Alien Bestiary Companion is also in layout now and will be heading out to our Kickstarter backers as soon as it’s done, and hopefully in time to get print copies for PaizoCon coming up May 24-27. A new Aethera adventure is just about ready to hit layout, with Wanted in the Wastes, and the Aethera Field Guide is slated to finish development this month and head to layout as well. The massive Alien Codex is coming too – I should be finished with the Reptilian Races chapter this weekend!

But wait, there’s more. See, all that stuff had already been announced. But today is a great day to unveil something new. Strap in and alert the Colonial Senate of the Planetary Federation, STAR EMPIRES is coming from Legendary Games!

Star Empires is a fully developed system of colony and nation-building and warfare for the Starfinder Roleplaying Gamebrought to you by the company that knows this genre like no one else. Inspired by the kingdom-building rules from Ultimate Campaign and Kingdoms (5E) but redesigned from the ground up and enhanced in a myriad of ways for sci-fi settings and the Starfinder system in all its glory. Legendary newcomer Matt Daley has been working with me on this adaptation and has brought forward a ton of cool ideas on how to make this an amazing accessory for your Starfinder campaign and taking your heroes into a broader and more epic scale of adventure and action.

And we’re not stopping there. Matt is already at work on not one, not two, but THREE more volumes in the Star Empires ruleset, including expanded warfare in Star Battles, dealing with variable tech levels in your sci-fi campaign with Star Evolutionand unpacking factions, organizations, influence, contacts, spycraft, diplomacy, and more in Star Intrigue! Wait, did I mention Star Battles…

Space battleship by Arrahman Rendi

The manuscript for Star Empires is in and we are rolling it through development while we wait for the remainder of the artwork to come in, but this seemed like a great time to make the announcement. We hope you’re as excited about this as we are, taking our expertise with opening up campaigns into a larger world of fame, fortune, power, and prestige.

RULE THE GALAXY WITH STAR EMPIRES!
