But that’s not all, because coming soon we have an incredible addition to the Ultimate line for 5E with Ultimate Strongholds, a remarkable resource for all things fortified in your campaign. It’s nearly finished in layout and hopefully will be ready for release on the next 5E Friday, or at the latest the following week. What can you expect to find within its pages? Check it out!

Ultimate Strongholds brings you an awesome array of fantastic fortifications for your 5th Edition Campaign! This exhaustive encyclopedia integrates all levels of 5E play, from classic party-level adventuring to an easy system for creating buildings of your own, on up to the expansive kingdom-building and management rules in Kingdoms from Legendary Games! Explore tons of new options for buildings, rooms, augmentations, and fortified buildings, as well as unusual building locations. Dive into siege warfare with an array of siege weapons, ammunition, and special structures and building materials. Ultimate Strongholds goes far beyond the basic building blocks, of course, with a wealth of information for buildings integrated with kingdom and settlement attributes and a host of exotic strongholds and structures, from cloud castles to water walls, flesh piles to crystal palaces, hedge forts to ghostly redoubts, with rules for damaging such bizarre and magical constructions and the hazards they bring! Plus, you get over two dozen new spells ideal for defending your stronghold or breaching the holds of your enemies like battering bolt, deathless defenders, and spiritual pike wall, along with spells to enhance the fortress itself like elemental architecture and haunted ruin! Last but not least, you also get the brand-new castellan arcane tradition that guides and guards a fortress like no one else can!

Last but not least, if you like to blend a little star-spanning sci-fi into your 5E cup, don’t miss Legendary Worlds: Polaris 7 (5E)! At the farthest edge of explored space, this frozen world is the source for a rare life-giving mineral seething with raw power, with corrupt corporate overlords, savage intrigues between rival factions, and deadly xenomorphic monsters awakened from their deep tunnels to destroy the invaders from above! You’ll find new feats, magic items, pharmaceuticals, and a brand-new monster too! If your heroes happen to slip through the wrong magical gateway or portal to the great beyond, you’ve got a perfect planet of peril to unleash upon them before they can make their escape back home! Grab this 20-page 5E supplement at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

Ultimate Relationships is coming for 5E!

At long last, we are ready to bring you the latest expansion for your 5E campaign with the amazing Ultimate Relationships by Mark Seifter and Matt Kimmel, bringing you a concise yet robust system for building exciting and enriching relationships between your PCs and the characters around them in the game world. This 32-page guide contains the base rules for building relationships, including benefits and boons as well as dealing with rivalries, romances, and more, plus six sample NPC relationship roles ready to use! What is this book all about? Check it out!

A good RPG campaign, like any good story, needs conflict and antagonists to lend it immediacy and drama. But a campaign with pure conflicts, without allies, family, romances, and other connections to friendly characters, quickly grows stale. Much like Shakespeare’s comedic drunken porter scene in Macbeth released tension intentionally to strengthen the impact of the revelation of Duncan’s murder just after, so too can points of lower intensity spent with friendly NPCs increase the impact of the game’s dramatic high points. And sometimes, the relationships themselves can provide their own high points, their own drama, and powerful transformations that make a character more than just a set of statistics or an unrealistically uncaring avatar. This book contains a system for relationships that provides a meaningful progression and story for each NPC, secrets to uncover as the relationship progresses, and hurdles for the PC and the NPC to overcome together. Unlike other relationship systems that bottleneck on certain skills, often Diplomacy, Ultimate Relationships allows everyone to progress and reveal the NPC’s story at their own rate; it just might take some characters longer than others. Much like the strong traditions of literature and television series about journeys, the physical journey is also a metaphor for the inner journey that each character takes along the way, progressing into someone different than they were at the beginning. With Ultimate Relationships, your PCs can join each NPC along his or her own personal journey. With their lives and fates intertwined, your game will never be the same.

Coming THIS 5E Friday from Legendary Games!

Legendary Planet… that star is almost ready to KILL!

We got a ton done over last weekend and earlier in the week but had to pause for a few days to work on payroll and taxes before getting going again last night. We also had a layout cycle pause, as one layout artist had to pack up for a cross-country move, but our backup on this project was ready to go by Thursday and he now has the in-progress InDesign files and already has begun work on keeping the momentum going! In fact, I’ve got layout samples to show below! But first, the Complete-o-Meter!

1.  The Flesh Pits of the Jagladine are finished (and in a way that I think really honors the creepiness of the jagladine as one of the long-running villain groups of the story, as well as presenting certain problems for the high-level heroes that you just can’t punch or stab) and the Chiroptiary Barracks begun. These are the last sections of Chapter 3, so once those are finished and we do a last cleanup pass on the chapter as a whole, it’ll be ready to go and then on to developing Chapter 4.

2.  5E Conversion on Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 is done! The 5E team has pivoted over to the appendices, and the Bestiary section is mostly done as well, as is Adventuring in the Void. They should be finishing those up soon, just in time to pivot back to Chapter 3 when we send out the final version.

3.  The maps are complete! I’ve been working with Michael Tumey back and forth this week on some refinements and finishing elements, with the Ultari Parliament building for Chapter 4 the last in the bunch. One last edit on some troublesome staircases (no, really) and that’s it.

4.  Word count is currently over 56,000 and climbing, just for the adventure. Final count will probably land around 65,000 when it’s all said and done. Add that to the five appendices at a total word count of over 25,000 and you’ve got a total book that’s double the size of the earlier already-massive chapters in the saga.

Hey, I cannot apologize enough about how long this project has taken, but one thing is for sure: At the end of the day, no one will be able to say this finale wasn’t EPIC!

I’ll be taking my youngest to go see Shazam! today, then back to the word mines. (I saw it once already with my older son and we had a great time – check it out if you haven’t!) But first, FINISHED LAYOUT PREVIEWS!

A brand-new monster from Steve for Chapter 4 alongside one created by a backer!

*sigh* Yes, there’s a typo, but the rest of it is totally rad!

If there’s a theme for this adventure, it just might be… BOOM! 🙂

Aegis of Empires Adventure Path is coming your way!

We announced some time ago that we were working on an epic fantasy adventure saga, courtesy of the gregarious Greg Vaughan, set in the amazing setting of The Lost Lands that Greg spent the last decade designing in delightful detail. If you can’t get enough of old-school fantasy, you’ve got just TWO HOURS LEFT to hop on board the Lost Lands Kickstarter to grab this killer campaign setting for yourself!

Meanwhile, just to update you on our progress, adventures #2, 4, and 5 are completed in development for Pathfinder, with 5E development in progress now. Maps are with the cartography team, and we’ve added new folks to the team because there are a LOT of maps to be done! The art for ALL THREE of these adventures is nearly complete, as we’re working ahead to get this sublime saga truly ready to go. Greg has just sent over the art orders for adventure #1 and should have development complete by the end of the month, with #3 and #6 to follow in short order thereafter.

Our plan is to release the first and second adventures for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition by late spring or early summer, and to also begin working on converting both for Pathfinder 2nd Edition in preparation for its GenCon release. We’ll be running preview events at PaizoCon in May, with authors Alistair Rigg running The Book in the Old House and Matt Goodall running When Comes the Moon, to show off the awesome adventures coming your way. We’ll continue releasing the individual adventures as they are ready, including having our initial adventures ready for release at GenCon, and as things get close to completion we’ll be planning a Kickstarter launch later this year to create a killer compilation version of the entire saga for all three systems! This AP is going to come in like a wrecking ball… or maybe more like a WRECKING VAMPIRE!!!

Things are really rolling on METEOR MONDAY!

Why Meteor Monday? Because all our efforts have been making a big IMPACT! [rim shot]

Seriously, today we’ve got a ton of projects that have ticked over major milestones all at pretty much the same time:

  • Ultimate Strongholds (5E) is off to layout, bringing a ton of amazing material for building classic castles and fantasy fortresses (like cloud castles, ghostly redoubts, bone keeps, walls of lava, and more), plus siege warfare, stronghold spells, and so much more!
  • Ultimate Relationships (5E) is off to layout as well, with a comprehensive system for developing relationships from romance to rivalry, friendships, loyalties, and more!
  • Ultimate Commander is out for conversion to 5E, bringing a whole new 20-level base class, the general, with archetypes and more focused on battlefield leadership and bringing with them a squad of troops to do their bidding (or a shambling gang of zombies for the hordelord alternate version of the class)!
  • The latest expansion of the Arcforge series is off to layout too, with the first installment in the Vandara Campaign Setting expansion, packed not only with world lore but also new class options and more, including Spheres of Power class material!
  • Legendary Worlds: Polaris 7 (Starfinder) is off to layout as well!
  • Did I mention we just brought three new layout artists on board? 🙂
  • The first two chapters of To Kill a Star, the ultimate climactic adventure of the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, are off for 5E conversion as well, along with the appendices, new magic and tech items, and more!
  • The print files for the Mythic Character Codex and Mythic Monster Manual 2 are ready to submit to our printer and hopefully get cleared for print next week, going out to our Kickstarter backers first and then getting ready for all of YOU!
  • N. Jolly is doing his second pass on Team Jolly’s manuscript of Legendary Rangers, the next Pathfinder class-focused tome from him, Andrew Gibson, and Wren Rosario, and both Clinton Boomer and Jason Nelson have bonus material they’ll be adding (and we may have a few additional surprises too).

AND THAT’S JUST THIS WEEK!!!

Who says they don’t like Mondays? 🙂
