MYTHIC MONDAY is Mythic Mania 2-sday – Let the Mania BEGIN!

The MYTHIC MANIA II Kickstarter has begun! 

MYTHIC MONDAY was just not big enough to contain all the awesomeness that you’ll find in the Mythic Character Codex and Mythic Monster Manual 2, so it took until Tuesday for Kickstarter to comprehend and allow us to unleash SO MUCH MANIA!!!

 

 

When the mythic rules for Pathfinder debuted five years ago, Legendary Games unleashed an incredible project – MYTHIC MANIA – teaming up with Kobold Press, Rogue Genius Games, and Dreamscarred Press to bring you three comprehensive expansion volumes, the Mythic Hero’s Handbook, Mythic Monster Manual, and Mythic Spell Compendium. Altogether, we gave you over 900 pages of incredible material to blow the lid off your Pathfinder campaign with literally thousands of mythic feats, spells, monsters, magic items, psionic powers, class features, path abilities, skills, traps, curses, and more to make your campaign dynamic and cinematic in ways it never was before. It was amazing and we thank everyone who made it possible.

MYTHIC MANIA II encompasses two books rather than three and incorporates mythic material for hardbacks like the Advanced Class Guide, Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium, Horror Adventures, Occult Adventures, Ultimate Intrigue, and Ultimate Wilderness, as well as potentially adding in more material from the Adventurer’s Guide, Monster Codex, Planar Adventures, Villain Codex, Book of the Damned, Pirate Campaign Compendium, and more! What will you find in MYTHIC MANIA II?

Mythic Character Codex – Three new mythic paths – the bound, mystic, and reluctant hero – along with over a thousand new mythic path abilities, hybrid class features, feats, spells, magic items, and more!

Mythic Monster Manual II – Over 200 mythic monsters… and maybe a whole lot more! Plus appendices and bonus content!

We’ve had our team working behind the scenes on this project for months now, and we’re pleased to inform you that THE WRITING AND ART ARE DONE. That includes both the primary core of the product and the planned stretch goals. Material for bonus goals is already written – it’s just a matter of seeing how big these books can become and how much stuff we can include! There will be no lag time waiting to catch upon things to get finished with the authors. It’s already in the can. The more pledges we get, the bigger the books will get and the more material will be included, but art and text is already finished for all of the material we plan to include.

This Kickstarter project runs through Mythic Monday, December 17, so please do help spread the word to all and sundry about this amazing opportunity to bring two incredible accessories to your Pathfinder campaign, making it more dynamic, cinematic, and exciting in some truly amazing ways. These books compile and include a metric ton of 5-star awesome individual products created by the people who know mythic rules better than anyone, and cover the gamut of GM and player material, including tons of great stuff that you can easily incorporate into a traditional Pathfinder campaign even if you don’t use the mythic rules for everything. It’s an amazing toolset for you to use as you will to Make Your Game Legendary!

Sci-Fi Friday Mutates and Evolves and Builds!

This fantastic Friday we have some amazing new books for 5E, Starfinder, and Pathfinder too! Brand-new for you from the malevolent minds of Mike Myler, Jason Nelson, and Clinton J. Boomer we are pleased to present Mutants and Mad Scientists, a fabulous 40-page 5th Edition encyclopedia of all kinds of sinister science and bad medicine! You’ll find spells, feats, class features, monsters, and more all built around the blighted biology of mutation and steampunk science of genetic engineering in all its horrible grotesquerie! You can introduce these elements anywhere horror features in your campaign, or have it rely on discovery of the eldritch tomes described within that reveal their terrible secrets to any mad enough to read them. You also can introduce the all-new mad scientist character class, complete with its own archetypes, and an entire system of enhanced non-magical medicine from relatively benign surgery to sadistic torments of body horror, grafting, and manipulation of bone, blood, and brain. You can grab this exciting encyclopedia of murderous medicine right now in PDF, print, and bundles at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand Amazon!

 

On top of that, it was just a week ago when we released the epic Star Empires for Starfinder! This incredible 100-page supplement provides extensive rules for exploring new worlds, planting your colonial flag, and establishing an interplanetary empire through diplomacy or conquest! It includes rules for random generation of new worlds, including both the natural biomes, atmosphere, and other natural conditions along with the kinds of colonies and societies already there, with sample colonies, empires, and military units. You also get flexible and modular colony creation rules alongside an abstract and easy to use mass combat system, random events at both the colony level and the empire-wide level. Kingdom-building takes a massive evolutionary step with Star Empires and you can grab a copy today in PDF, print, or a bundle of both at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon

Now if you love the idea of building up your characters to lordly status but your tastes run more to fantasy than sci-fi, fear not! You can check out the incredible  Ultimate Strongholds by Ben Walklate and Jason Nelson! This marvelous 46-page supplement not only covers a ton of rules expansions for buildings, fortifications, magical augmentations, exotic materials, siege warfare and weapons, and the like, but it also bridges the gap from the individual adventurer level with downtime rules, capital and construction, and kingdom building and mass combat. It also provides tons of options for GMs and players alike to create cloud castles, hedge forts, crystal palaces, necromantic flesh piles and ghostly redoubts, and more, with rules for exploring and breaching these fantastic fortresses. Add in over two dozen spells from spiritual pike wall to elemental architecture and haunted ruin, and even a new castellan prestige class for managing every detail of castle defense! When your heroes want to skip the common room at the inn and step up to a place of their own (or when the GM wants to design some truly amazing lairs to explore), you need to pick up Ultimate Strongholds today, available in print, PDF, and print/PDF bundles at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon

Ashes of Empires AP Update!

Back during PaizoCon 2018, we first announced that Legendary Games would be producing a massive new adventure saga, the epic Ashes of Empires from Greg Vaughan and company! What is Ashes of Empires all about? LET’S FIND OUT!

Empires rise, and empires fall. Each rises from the ashes of the last, but no matter what heights they reach all come to ashes in the end.

  • Set in The Lost Lands, this AP is the culmination of Greg Vaughan’s eight-year project assembling the Necromancer Games catalog and preparing a massive adventure saga to take advantage of that depth of lore.
  • Spanning two continents and 10,000 years of history, Greg’s epic saga spans eons of ancient mysteries as PCs uncover the hidden past of empires and the horrors they conceal!

This truly epic adventure saga comprises six chapters:

  • Book 1: The Book in the Old House – by Alistair J. Rigg – Help a young knight rid his ancestral manor of its haunts and discover the beginnings of a deeper mystery going much further back in time.
  • Book 2: The Ebon Soul – by Jeff Swank – Heroes face an ancient vampire’s curse and must deal with the consequences and troubles of a forgotten empire’s underworld that proves to be very much alive and well.
  • Book 3: When Comes the Moon – by Matt Goodall – The mountain outpost of a religious order from a bygone era starts to look like the setting for a werewolf hunt, memories of older times continue to have ramifications in the present day as the hunters become the hunted on the mountain peaks.
  • Book 4: Legend of the Burning Star – by Steve Helt – Seek an ancient meteor crater holding riches in sky metals, but past expeditions seeking it came to naught…until a never-before-seen journal surfaces and puts the players on that path once again.
  • Book 5: Race for Shataakh-Uulm – by Tom Knauss – Heroes traverse a haunted and desolate land to claim the meteorite’s riches before others jump their claim and discover the unspeakable fate of the original explorers.
  • Book 6: Knight Fall in Old Curgantium – by Anthony Pryor – The quest comes full circle to the capital of the Hyperborean Empire, ruined in ancient holocaust yet whose menace threatens to arise once more and bring calamity to the empires that have arisen in its place as destiny turns to doom!

Greg and his team have been steadily working away in the background, but we now have three adventures completely written, edited, and developed, with the other three manuscripts slated to be finished by early January and ready to start layout this spring. We’ll be offering this adventure path for 5th Edition, the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, and for Pathfinder 2nd Edition, though the latter versions of the adventures will not be available until after PF2 releases at GenCon 2019.

This is a classic fantasy saga blending elements of cosmic horror and deep lore in a rich and evocative setting. We don’t have an exact page count just yet, but it’s definitely over 200,000 words and then some, and I can confidently say this compendium won’t be shy sitting on your shelf next to Slumbering Tsar and its ilk. We hope you’re as excited to see this project come to fruition as we are.

P.S. Some of you might ask whatever happened to Conquest: Rage of Wyrms, the AP we announced the year before? The announcement of Pathfinder 2nd Edition made us rethink some things around our scheduling for a big adventure project, and around the same time both Robert Brookes and Jason Nelson got very busy with other work, to the point that they couldn’t devote the attention to pushing this one through as originally planned. Coincidentally, it was not long after that Greg, one of the founding members of Legendary Games, stepped up with a perfect alternative! In business you have to be flexible with plans and resources to make everything come together, and we are excited to bring Ashes of Empires to your table.

At the same time, we are still passionate about the project, but we just have to find the time to bring the right resources to bear to make it happen. It won’t be in 2019, but hopefully we can get it rolling in time to release in 2020! The dragons are waiting!!!

Check it out today at an amazing 80% off – just $2!

Ultimate Armies is still on the way, though I’ve had to sideline work on it to focus my efforts on getting the final Legendary Planet adventure, To Kill a Star, finished, but I am looking forward to slaying the last of the Unholy Trinity early next year! Fort Scurvy and Royal Tournaments down, one more to go! For any of you fans who have enjoyed our fantasy-focused expansions for kingdom building, mass combat, and the like, we also exhort you to check out the spectacular Star Empires, a massive 100-page redesign of the system from the ground up to make it really sing in a sci-fi setting using the Starfinder Roleplaying Game rules and incorporating many of the lessons learned from our extensive experience, and look forward to even more expansions coming soon like Star Battles, Star Intrigue, and more!
