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? 🙂

Mythic Monster Manual 2 is off to backers!

We are proud as punch to announce the rapid turnaround and completion of the magnificent Mythic Monster Manual 2 – our project closed in December and in less than three months the first book is done and the Mythic Character Codex not far behind! This incredible 446-page manual of menace is headed out to our backers first, but once they’ve had a little time to digest and delight in the terrific tome they helped create it’ll be ready for EVERYONE soon! Check out a full description of what you’ll find inside below!

 

More Magnificent Monsters! 
The Mythic Monster Manual II brings you dynamic and exciting mechanics alongside evocative and cinematic new abilities that make the creatures in your Pathfinder campaign live up to their flavor text, whether they are creatures of real-world myth and legend or beasts born of the RPG tradition itself. Some are allies extraordinaire, companions and mentors for your aspiring heroes. Among the mythic foes you will find within, even the lowliest minions possess a special spark, and the mightiest among them stand with the greatest threats a Pathfinder campaign has ever known. These creatures work just as well in a traditional Pathfinder campaign as they do in one using the full mythic rules! While this book is an indispensable expansion to the roster of mythic monsters in the official rules, they also provide a delightful change of pace for players who think they’ve seen it all or know the standard monster stat blocks as well as you do. This amazing array of richly developed mythic creatures also contains dozens of pages of supplemental material for making the mundane of monsters something extraordinary. When you pull out the Mythic Monster Manual II, that look of surprise and “What was THAT?” will warm any GM’s heart!

The is massive 446-page bestiary includes:

– Over 220 different mythic monsters, ranging from CR 1 to CR 30, including classic monsters from ochre jellies to ogre magi and sahuagin to sphinxes, along with even more mysterious menaces like the hellcat, xorn, will-o’-wisp, and rakshasa maharajah!

– Over two dozen brand-new mythic monsters, drawn from fantasy, myth, literature, and legend, from Scylla and Charybdis to the buraq, wendigo, and Fenris Wolf, with detailed ecologies and lore!

– Eight incredible new templates, including mythic and non-mythic versions, to create fission elementals, alien xenoid abominations, misshapen tauric composite creatures, clever tricksome travelers and runecasters, and more!

– Expanded rules for battling colossal creatures, cultivating mythic plants, fearsome fungi like mythic green slime and yellow mold, mythic universal monster rules, and more in the appendices!

–  Nearly 50 new monster-focused mythic feats, as well as feats usable by non-mythic creatures and characters, including mythic versions of feats from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Monster Codex and Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Villain Codex, plus over 30 existing mythic monster feats for ease of reference! 

– Appendices detailing monsters by challenge rating, type, and subtype (including new subtypes like the fungus and troop subtype), as well as guidelines for mythic familiars and companions.

– Hyperlinked referencing all base monster stat blocks and non-core rules options for ease of reference in the PDF version.

– and much Much MUCH MORE!

The Mythic Monster Manual 2 is an ideal companion volume to the Mythic Character Codex, Mythic Hero’s Handbook, Mythic Spell Compendium, and the original Mythic Monster Manual, as well as awesome expansions like Path of Dragons and Path of Villains to make your ultimate enemies shine the brighter and bring down the wrath like thunder! Add any of these expansions to your Pathfinder campaign and Make Your Game Legendary!

A terrific TWOsday times two!

Today is a terrific Tuesday here in Legendary land! First of all, after many weeks of slacking I’ve finally updated our TWO$DAY product of the week, with Ron Lundeen’s terrific adventure, The Horseshoe Calamity! You can get this wild and woolly Pathfinder adventure into the winter wilderness right now for just $2 right here at the Legendary Games webstore!

Even more exciting, I’ve just finished tabulating our sales and payroll for the past month and, while we like to call out products that join the Millennium Club that have sold at least a thousand copies (Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex (5E) looks like the next one in line to join the club), but this month we have twice as much reason to celebrate because Ultimate Rulership has now DOUBLED that mark, crossing the TWO THOUSAND sales mark! The 5E audience has been enthusiastic in their support too, not just for Ultimate Rulership (5E) and its sequels, but also the core 5E kingdom-building and mass combat rules in Kingdoms (5E), which has sold more than 1000 copies on its own as well!

We thank each and every one of you who has checked out this exciting product line, and we hope to have some BIG news coming for you later this spring! Ultimate Relationships (5E) is in production right now and will shortly be heading to layout, with Ultimate Strongholds (5E) to follow right after it. That’s exciting, but there’s something bigger coming. Something truly… ULTIMATE!

Battle for the Planets on Sci-Fi Friday! Plus Aethera and mythic!

Today we are excited and delighted to debut the latest expansion for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, the perfect supplement for playing out your star wars with your starship troopers: Star Battles! This fantastic 58-page supplement contains new starship options, including armor upgrades, weapon properties, security and sensors, expansion bays, damage control, hull types, defensive countermeasures, crew rules and actions, ship stunts, and more, but it doesn’t stop there! You can use these expanded starship rules and new ship-focused archetypes, spells, and feats in your regular campaign, or you can integrate it in a layered mass combat system that works with the core rules from the best-selling Star Empires expansion, equipping entire armies and battle squadrons with new mass combat tactics, command boons, and special abilities, plus rules for planetary sieges and infiltration, bombardment and blockade, creating new armies with the troop template and integrating layered mass combat between ships and the surface! You can grab this exciting new expansion today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, PaizoDrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon!

The sci-fi doesn’t stop there, as our amazing Aethera Field Guide has now gone out to Kickstarter backers, and after a final review pass will be getting a few last-minute tweaks and then releasing to them and then on to YOU! This terrific 220-page tome is packed full of alien flora and fauna from the spectacular Aethera system, as well as rich and exciting lore for every planet and new rules elements like gear, feats, magic items, and more native to every world. If you are looking for an incredibly immersive interplanetary experience, look no further than the Aethera Campaign Setting and the Aethera Field Guide, coming your way this month for Pathfinder, with the Starfinder version in layout as we speak and the 5E version coming after that!

Of course, it’s not all sci-fi! We are beyond blessed by the terrific performance already of Mythic Treasures, a tantalizing treasure trove of legendary loot! You’ve made it the top-selling Pathfinder product on DrivethruRPG and the sales response on our own site has been tremendous as well! We hope you’ll check it out and get ready for the magnificent 440+ page Mythic Monster Manual 2, which is finished in layout and going through final revisions before it goes out to backers next week!
