HOWEVER, we have fantastic news, because we never have just one project working at a time, so we are excited to prepare to launch our incredible Asian Monsters 5E bestiary Quick-Starter next week, June 9th!

5E FREE-Day and SEA-Day, plus a new Quick Starter coming soon!

Last month we ran our second Quickstarter event with the spectacular Sea Monsters project, an incredible 80-page bestiary of nautical nasties for DnD 5th Edition! All of our backers have their PDFs and our print files are at the printer waiting our turn in the queue, but this magnificent monster manual is ready for you to take home starting today in PDF (and for print preorder at the Legendary Games webstore). You’ll find 65 spectacular sea monsters for every challenge level from reef hags and coral golems to living islands and shipwrecker crabs, with monstrous beasts from the real-world oceans like megalodons and ravenous urchin swarms to mythological beasts like scylla, charybdis, and the Midgard Serpent! Grab a copy today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG, or get special Kickstarter bundle pricing through our Preorder Store at Backerkit!

Coming your way soon on Kickstarter, and like all of our Quickstarter events, this is not some months or years down the road project. This book is done. I’m sending the files to layout this weekend, with the only thing I’m waiting for at this point being the new cover art. So far, fans have loved our Sea Monsters and Mythos Monsters bestiaries, but we thought it would be fun to unleash a more player-focused book this time around. We have some amazing GM and player-focused material coming in our next campaign after this, so keep your eyes peeled for more previews of the fantastic Boricubos: The Lost Isles coming in May!

COMING SOON! 
Legendary Games is proud to announce our partnership with veteran author Darrin Drader, worked on such titles as the D&D 3.5 Book of Exalted Deeds, Forgotten Realms: Serpent Kingdoms, Forgotten Realms: Mysteries of the Moonsea, D20 Apocalypse, and a host of others. He started DDD (Darrin Drader Designs) as a creative outlet for his awesome adventures, campaign settings, and more, and next Friday we’ll be debuting our first DDD production through Legendary Games, Master of the Forgotten Temple! Check out what you’ll see inside! 

The Town of Woodwail Has a Dragon Problem

It’s not an obvious problem; dragons don’t swoop out of the sky and prey upon caravans and livestock. This problem is far more insidious. Decades ago, the dragon, Chardinarth took up residence in a forgotten temple outside the frontier town of Woodwail. Not content to simply sit and bide its time, it began extorting money from the local Duke. Now, its demands have increased.

Duke Arret Warda oversees the town of Woodwail for the Regent. A fair but grim man who carries this burden heavily, he knows he, and his father before him, have been party to activity many might consider treasonous; raiding the coffers to enrich a dragon’s hoard. The dragon has grown greedier. Warda knows he must do something to rid the area of this monster. He needs dragon slayers!

Master of the Forgotten Temple is an adventure for the 5th Edition of the world’s most popular roleplaying game, and is intended for characters levels 11 to 13.

OTHER KICKSTARTER NEWS! 
 
Speaking of missing out on our Sea Monsters project, I would be remiss if I didn’t reach out with thanks to the whole community of creators making amazing stuff for D&D 5E and beyond. Most of us are small companies and we like to support each other and spread the good news to make a richer ecology of games and supplements for everyone. One of my dear friends in the business, my brother from another mother, Jonathan Nelson, runs AAW (Adventure A Week), and they’ve just launched a terrific Kickstarter project as well. Where we are going deep underwater, they are going deep underground, with the aid of the legendary Douglas Niles (author of the AD&D Dungeoneer’s Survival Guide). If you love drow, the underdark, and all the creepy crawlies in the caves below, then by all means please check out their new Survivalist’s Guide to Spelunking for D&D 5E, the definitive guide for Underworld survival with an array of modular tools, tables, and rules to enhance & customize your game.
 
Going the other direction from big to small, rather than talking about the whole ocean like we are doing, our friends at the Cabal of Enchantment are distilling magic and power into a single drop with their new Alchemy and Poisoncraft project, featuring not only tons of new alchemical rules but also a companion adventure showing off all the great stuff you can do with their system. We are planning a book of magic items and treasures and alchemical items are definitely part of that, so it’s cool to see their take on things as well!
 
Those of us who make games for a living appreciate each and every one of you who supports the games business, whether it’s D&D or other systems. Old-school fantasy projects like ours and the ones above. New-school genre-crossing games like the exciting Native American inspired and designed Coyote and Crow! There’s a ton of cool stuff out there, from small-scale supplements to big books and all points in between. Games are fun to play and fun to read, and in this COVID age we all can use a distraction from the cares of the world, and we honor your support in helping us to make the world a little more fun.
