Last Friday saw the spectacular debut of the latest installment in the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, with the awesome adventure To Worlds Unknown for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition! That’s a big adventure in a star-spanning saga, taking your heroes right out of this world and into the cosmos, and we think you’ll love every bit of it! However, everything big had to start small, and that’s where Legendary Beginnings come in.
No matter how long you’ve been playing RPGs, a challenge for gamers is bringing new players into the hobby, whether friends our age or younger players. Starter sets and boxes for beginners are great but not enough, and that’s why we started Legendary Beginnings, products designed to be tons of fun for experienced gamers with structure and content suitable for new gamers and younger players. The first adventure, Into the Feyweald, has received very positive feedback, but single adventures are one thing. We had bigger plans in mind, and with that, we invite you to support the Trail of the Apprentice Kickstarter, scheduled to begin next week!
Trail of the Apprentice is a 5-part series of exciting adventures suitable for all ages, available for 5th Edition and Pathfinder. These modules use simplified stat blocks and other rules adjustments to keep gameplay fun and fast for new players, with helpful sidebars that provide advice on how to run RPGs for younger gamers so your whole family can Make Your Game Legendary!
We are delighted to have a talented creative team on Trail of the Apprentice, including lead author Paris Crenshaw, Mike Welham, Linda Zayas-Palmer, Matt Goodall, Amanda Hamon Kunz, and more lending their talents to this spectacular series of adventures! The first four adventures in the series all have been written and the fifth is well underway, along with bonus material for stretch and the campaign setting of Terralien inspired in part by the American Colonial era. Artwork for the AP is likewise nearly half-done, with the final art and map orders going out this week! When the Kickstarter ends on April 22nd, backers will be able to immediately download the first several adventures, and if all goes well they’ll be able to get all five as soon as the project closes, with print versions and the full compilation with bonus material available by the end of May!
NOTE: The creative team for Legendary Beginnings is entirely separate from the crew working on the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, save for some bonus goal contributions from authors that have already completed their work on Legendary Planet. Progress on Legendary Planet will not be delayed by anyone working on Trail of the Apprentice! We are excited to get both adventure series in your hands as soon as possible!
Our regular product cycle continues as well! For 5th Edition, we are looking forward to the release this week of Beasts of Legend: Construct Codex (5E), featuring nearly a dozen creepy constructs themed for horror, from the bloodthirsty manikin to the crowflight carriage and the griever morgech to the living crematory!
Our Pathfinder fans can look forward to this week’s release of Occult Archetypes, with almost 20 new character options for their occult characters, and speaking of occult, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention it’s also MYTHIC MONDAY, which brings us Mythic Minis 82: Occult Feats II, from Psychic Virtuoso to Xenoglossy and more, which is available NOW at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, and DrivethruRPG!
