Kingmaker Anniversary Edition – COMPLETE!!!

In addition to our usual ongoing cycle of new releases and our own massive projects coming to completion like Ultimate Kingdoms and Legendary Planet, one of the biggest new projects Legendary Games undertook this past year was our partnership with Paizo Inc. to do the official Pathfinder Second Edition conversion for the Kingmaker Adventure Path 10th Anniversary Edition! As big projects do, this one just kept getting bigger, eventually turning into FOUR fantastic volumes with the Companion Guide, Pathfinder RPG Bestiary, and 5E Bestiary to accompany the massive 640-page Adventure Path book itself. Spurred on in part by the success of the Owlcat Kingmaker CRPG, these weren’t just going to be updated stats but completely rewrites of the six original Kingmaker adventures, PLUS *four* brand-new adventures, PLUS redesigned and massively expanded kingdom and mass combat rules, PLUS tons of new material for wilderness adventures, PLUS mini-adventures and new rules options like feats, spells, items, and roles for NPC companions in kingdom, mass combat, and downtime rules… it’s a LOT of stuff, somewhere over 1000 pages of material altogether. Some of the original Kingmaker authors like Tim Hitchcock, Jason Nelson, and Richard Pett were able to revisit the Stolen Lands, and we had a ton of new contributors as well to develop the PF2 adventures and all the PFRPG and 5E material as well.

And now it’s done!

I should say, the Legendary Games part of the project is done (aside from continuing conversations as needed with the Paizo design and development staff as they do their final passes and assembly work to make sure everything fits just right). Paizo will continue work on their end, with the project scheduled for release around November of this year. It was a massive project that was a lot of fun but required the contributions of a ton of great people, so shout-outs are definitely in order for our killer crew of adventure authors in Tom Phillips, Tim Hitchcock, Jacob Michaels, Ron Lundeen, Steve Helt, Scott Young, Alex Riggs, Mike Welham, Dennis Muldoon, and Jason Nelson, plus piles of amazing additional material from Alex Augunas, Russ Brown, Carlos Cabrera, Jeremy Corff, Darrin Drader, Joel Flank, Robert J. Grady, Eric Hindley, Jeff Ibach, Victoria Jaczko, Matt Kimmel, Jeff Lee, Tom McQueen, Julian Neale, Chris Perrin, Richard Pett, David Ross, Justin Sluder, and Linda Zayas-Palmer! 

Thanks to everyone who was a part of creating these books or supporting this project, and we hope you’ll be looking forward to it coming out as much as we are! Anybody wanting to revisit Kingmaker can already get our incredible expansion of the setting with the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium (Pathfinder RPG) and Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium (5E) available right now, and you also can definitely count on a ton of great Kingmaker-friendly Pathfinder Second Edition product coming soon, as well as massive expansions to the new kingdom-building and mass combat rules. Ultimate Rulership, Ultimate Battle, Ultimate War, and that entire line have been among our all-time best-selling products for both Pathfinder RPG and 5th Edition, and we’re already working on new ideas for Pathfinder Second Edition. The kingdom and mass combat rules you’ll get in the Kingmaker Adventure Path Anniversary Edition are already more than twice the size of the PFRPG rules in Ultimate Campaign, but there’s room for so much more to come!

We’ll take a well-deserved sigh of relief and then jump back into the fray to finish up Legendary Planet and Ultimate Kingdoms over the next week or two, and then on to new horizons with the Aegis of Empires Adventure Path, coming soon to Kickstarter!!! No time for stopping when you’re too busy being LEGENDARY!!!

My Kingdom for 5E Friday! Now with 100% more Stone Age!

Our mighty and royal thanks to everyone of you and your support of Legendary Games. They say a person’s home is their castle, and we hope each of your castles is safe and healthy amid the ongoing pandemic. We are excited and delighted for the great support of Ultimate Kingdomsand if your DnD 5E characters ever wanted to make their home into THEIR castle, this is absolutely the right book for it! Construct towering forces both magical and mundane, or rule a kingdom and marshal your forces to quell an ongoing plague event, or just build the kind of relationships that last a lifetime and carry you through whatever comes your way. This spectacular 384-page volume is heading to the printer now and will go out to our backers first when the books come back this summer, but should be available to the general public in time for GenCon! Or when GenCon *would* be if it ends up being canceled! Right now, though, you can order the PDF from all our favorite partners (and preorder the print book and print/PDF bundle only at the Legendary Games webstore) like the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

BUT WAIT, because there’s so much more on this 5E Friday, because it’s time to be a King of the Stone Age with the sensational new campaign setting of Vast Kaviya for 5E!!! This thrilling 320-page 5E expansion takes you back to the dawn of time, with mysterious sorcerers, savage prehistoric beasts, and mighty-thewed heroes in loincloth and spear carving out their destiny from a rapacious and hungry world of monsters, mystery, and mayhem! If you love old-school pump adventure in the tradition of Conan and King Kull (or even apocalyptic futures where barbarism has returned, like Thundarr!), check it out today at the Legendary Games webstore and DrivethruRPG, and coming soon from our other partners as well!

But wait, it gets even better! The massive 320-page Vast Kaviya book has a ton of material for players and GMs alike, but that includes stuff like secrets of the campaign world! If you’d rather keep those secrets away from prying eyes but still allow your players to pull from the dozens and dozens of awesome character options that Vast Kaviya has to offer (or if you’re just a player and want awesome Stone Age 5th Edition stuff for yourself and don’t need a bunch of campaign material), you can grab the 130-page Vast Kaviya Adventurer’s Guide in PDF or softcover print at the Legendary Games webstore and DrivethruRPG, with all the classes, races, feats, spells, equipment, and so much more! Plus, keep players’ eyes where they belong with the Vast Kaviya GM Screen from the Legendary Games webstore or DrivethruRPG, compatible with standard modular GM screens and with all your useful data and tables right where you need them!

We hope you’ve loved 5E’s March of Madness from Legendary Games and we are looking forward to even more amazing products coming out next month! Check them all out and have a safe, healthy, and Legendary weekend!
