Take Command on 5E Friday! Plus SWADE Saturday comes early!

It’s 5E Friday at last, and we are excited and delighted to release Ultimate Commander (5E)a completely new 20-level character class built around commanding a squad of soldiers like living weapons, executing complex battlefield tactics and carrying you to triumph as a warlord everywhere you tread, from the dungeon to the battlefield! This book includes not just the core general class but also their evil opposite, the zombie-master hordelord, plus specialized archetypes from the criminal kingpin to the radical revolutionary and righteous redeemer, alongside feats of command and leadership and so much more! This killer class is perfectly suited for traditional DnD 5E games as well as those incorporating the kingdom-building and mass combat rules from Legendary Games in books like Kingdoms and Ultimate Rulership. You can grab this amazing 26-page supplement today in print and print/PDF bundles at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon!

Even better, Ultimate Commander (5E) is in the queue now for release on Fantasy Grounds! If you love Legendary Games’ stuff, and in particular our kingdom-building and mass combat rules, you have got a ton of amazing stuff headed your way on Fantasy Grounds… and some of it is already here! Kingdoms (5E) has been available there for some time, but at long last you now also can pick up our first two incredible expansions, Ultimate Rulership (5E) and Ultimate Battle (5E), with Ultimate War (5E) already in the approvals cycle on the Fantasy Grounds store and Ultimate Strongholds (5E) finishing up soon! Of course, we also have tons of adventures, monster books, magic item compendiums, class books, and so much more. We’re slowly building our collection on Roll20 and D20Pro, but Fantasy Grounds has been our most productive VTT partnership, and we are delighted to see a lot more stuff coming up there soon!

As for SWADE Saturday, I’m heading out shortly on a vacation road trip with the lovely and talented Mrs. Legendary, so I’m just gonna launch the latest offerings for the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition right here! We’ve just launched our second spectacular pirate adventure for SWADE with Raid on the Emperor’s Hand, in which a laden imperial treasure ship just falls right into your Veteran piratical hands… but do you dare actually board it and rob it in broad daylight? Can you plunder and pillage and still make good your escape before the entire fleet descends up on you? Fortune favors the bold in Raid on the Emperor’s Hand (SWADE), and you can pick it up right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG!

You already can pick up Spices and Flesh (SWADE) for Seasoned heroes (I honestly did not notice that pun until just now), and we have more pirate adventures coming down the pipe! Plus, we have two amazing Egyptian-themed accessories for SWADE coming your way soon. Ancient Tombs is in layout now, with an awesome assortment of tomb treasures and dressing details, alongside new curses, Edges, traps, terrifying sentient idols, and so much more! Plus, coming not too long after we’ll be delving even deeper into the magic of ancient empires with Curses! I’m not even going to tell you what it’s about, but it’s gonna be Legendary! 🙂

A Very Classy Friday!

Creating classes is a BLAST, and we are doubly excited to bring out a second companion volume on the awesome alchemist class, Legendary Alchemists Expanded! Where the original Legendary Alchemists brought you a ground-up reimagining of the alchemist class plus tons of discoveries, archetypes, and more, Legendary Alchemists Expanded brings you even more class material – with new archetypes and over 40 new discoveries – as well as expanding the role of alchemists in the world, with new alchemical crafting materials, alchemical organizations, campaign events, variant multiclassing, and more! You can get this amazing 58-page expansion right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand soon at Amazon!

But that’s not all; no, far from it! In fact, as this book releases to you, we are sending Legendary Rangers into the layout pipeline right after it! This new book incorporates a complete redesign of the ranger, focusing on nature’s gifts, adaptive learning in the wild, 11 new archetypes like the feral scavenger, harrier scout, and wild plains drifter, new ranger feats, herbal spells, trap spells, primeval spells, and more! It’s in layout and heading your way in August! Plus, Legendary Clerics and Legendary Bloodragers are nearing completion and ready to join the fray as we roll into autumn! Just because Pathfinder Second Edition is coming in less than two weeks doesn’t mean we’re not still making amazing products for the original edition of the game!

That said, Pathfinder Second Edition *IS* coming out in less than two weeks, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t have some amazing class-based products headed your way! We’ve already announced our Second Edition Spell Cards, with Arcane Basic on track still to be available opening day on August 1st and companion decks for Divine, Occult and Primal spells coming after. We’ve also got adventures a-coming, with The Horseshoe Calamity already complete and waiting for us to push the Big Red Button on August 1st, and a brand-new version of our very first adventure, The Murmuring Fountain, also nearly complete and hopefully ready in time for the big day!

But this is a CLASSY Friday, so time to announce our first two Pathfinder Second Edition class books coming your way!

  • Legendary Second Class: Kineticist – This terrific tome brings you our Legendary take on the fan-favorite kineticist class, reimagined for Pathfinder Second Edition by N. Jolly and Vanessa Hoskins, including class feats, archetypes, optional abilities, and more!
  • Second Class Guide: Wizard – A complete guide to building and playing a wizard in Pathfinder Second Edition by Nathan Aslan Reinecke, with ratings, options, and alternatives for getting the most out of your character with the new system! Which feats, spells, and specializations should you take to build the kind of wizard you want to make? Get it all right here!

After August, we’ll have many more new classes and class guides coming for you! Our authors are some of the most experienced class creators and guide writers in the business, and you’ve seen their work all over the place. Get it now to help you make the most of your very first Pathfinder Second Edition campaign!

Last but not least, after many delays and an unfortunate computer meltdown, Ultimate Commander (5E) is finally just about ready to launch! I’ll be reviewing the PDFs this weekend and it’s slated for release next 5E Friday! An entirely new 5E class built around being a leader of soldiers (or a master of zombies), this opens up a world of new possibilities for your 5th Edition campaign. We’re excited to see if you love it as much as we do!

Heck, I almost forgot two new class books for Starfinder as well, with Star Classes: Cantor by Kendra Leigh Speedling and the Aethera team, as well as The Robot Summoner by Jeff Lee and James Vance! Is it possible to have TOO MUCH class? I don’t think so!

Stay CLASSY and have a Legendary weekend!

First Second Edition Uploaded!

No, it won’t be available until August 1st, but our first Pathfinder Second Edition product has been uploaded to our site and our various sales partners like Paizo, DrivethruRPG, Amazon, and the Open Gaming Store!

Cold as Winter’s Heart

On the frozen frontier far from civilization, a recently-disturbed shrine to an evil god has brought chaos and conflict to a community of centaurs and humans. The humans blame the centaurs’ greed for the plague of undead, and the centaurs seek a powerful magic item—starting with a single horseshoe—to put the threat to rest. Will the spirit of chaos bring all-out war or can both sides face down an ancient menace that threatens to destroy them all?

 

The Horseshoe Calamity is a 7th-level adventure for the brand-new Pathfinder Second Edition that can be played on its own or as a snowy side-trek to a larger winter-themed campaign, including new monsters, new magic items, and more! Grab this 26-page adventure today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Sci-Fi Friday brings an Awesome Ending and New Beginnings!

Our Kickstarter backers have already revealed in the insanely epic climax of the Legendary Planet Adventure Path and now you can too, with the biggest single adventure we’ve ever published, the dynamic double-sized To Kill a Star! When diving through a black hole is only like the sixth most insane thing you do in this adventure, you know you’re in for an amazing ride! Dead space gods, the heart of an interstellar empire, psychic technomagical mega-cities, a totalitarian telepathic police state, and the final unfolding of a cosmic conspiracy await. You’re not going to slay the boss dragon and steal its hoard. You’re not facing the evil king in a solo battle in his throne room. Oh no, this is HIGH-LEVEL ADVENTURING in all caps. You don’t just barely hit your highest level of spells. You hit 20th level plus mythic tiers and just keep going, pulling out ALL the stops.

The price of betrayal may be your very lives! Check it out today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand soon at Amazon! Plus, keep a weather eye on the horizon for Islands of Plunder: Raid on the Emperor’s Hand for more piratey goodness, plus delve deeply into Idols and Tombs and all the terror and treasure that awaits there!

We’ve got tons of great 5th Edition, Pathfinder, and Starfinder products coming soon, but we are just 20 days away from the launch of Pathfinder Second Edition, and you can bet your dice bag that Legendary Games will be there opening day with bells on. We have so much more to announce, but for now our opening day lineup should include:

  • The Horseshoe Calamity (PF2), a 7th-level wilderness adventure by Ron Lundeen
  • Second Edition Spell Cards: Arcane Basic, a 90-card deck containing every cantrip and 1st and 2nd-level spell in the Arcane Tradition, for easy reference during play!

Also coming in August:

  • The Murmuring Fountain (PF2), a 1st-level horror adventure by Jason Nelson, Clark Peterson, and Jacob Michaels
  • Second Edition Spell Cards: Divine Basic, a 90-card deck containing every cantrip and 1st and 2nd-level spell in the Divine Tradition, plus the first set of devotee spells and domain spells.
