SUMMER PREVIEW #16: This is gonna be OUT OF THIS WORLD!


As we are looking forward to GenCon, that also means we are looking forward to our new GenCon releases! We’ll be putting out product between now and then, of course; in fact, PATH OF DRAGONSis in layout right now and should be available early next week and we’ve got plenty more product coming behind it, but as we look ahead to the con you might have heard that some new Pathfinder products are coming out that have a bit of a sci-fi flair. The mash-up of sci-fi and fantasy is as old as RPGs, all the way back to Dave Arneson’s Blackmoor setting, and it’s never stopped being a thing, but right now seems like a great time to start bringing some of that (literally) starry-eyed wonder to Legendary Games! To that end, I bring to you this:

Mythic Monsters - Aliens (cover)

Is it wrong that the intellect devourer has been one of my favorite monsters since I first laid eyes on the 1st Ed Monster Manual as a 10-year-old kid? I mean, what a masterpiece of menace Dave Trampier crafted in black and white, and Michael Jaecks has certainly carried on in that lethal legacy. And is that a mythic FLUMPH? Yes, yes it is. And it’s awesome. We’ll delve more into the particulars in the next preview, but for now here’s a quick recap of the extraterrestrial enemies (and the friendly flumph) contained between these covers!
