5th edition


5E Friday Technomagic and Alien Bestiary now for Pathfinder too!

Today we are excited and delighted to bring you the latest compendium of awesome artifacts and marvelous magic, this time with tons of technology too! The Treasury of the Machine (5E) brings you over 60 technological items of every description, from devastating weapons like the rapture ray, targeting computer, gravity cannon, kinesis grappler, or singularity grenade, to amazing accessories like the learning helmet, targeting computer, slipsuit, and ghosting unit, and much, more more! You can grab this killer collection of technomagical loot starting at just $4.99 at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon!

Speaking of sci-fi, the awesome Alien Bestiary Kickstarter for Starfinder and 5E has already raked in over 300 backers in the first week for those two systems, but some folks said, “Hey, how come there’s not a Pathfinder version of this book?” We did some research with our fans, and now we are pleased to announce that we have added the Alien Bestiary Companion for Pathfinder to the Kickstarter! This volume will bring you all of our new monsters from Legendary Planet and the Aethera Campaign Setting, plus additional monsters selected by you, plus an appendix of where to find even more sci-fi and space-themed monsters in existing published bestiaries and sources for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game!

On the Kickstarter page, you’ll see an array of brand-new backer levels where you can get the Alien Bestiary Companion for Pathfinder on its own, or in combination with either the Starfinder or 5th Edition versions of the book!

This incredible sci-fi monster manual is growing with every stretch goal, with backers getting to choose which new monsters make the grade! They’re already voting on their favorite Cosmic Constructs and halfway to their next stretch goal of Alien Animals, with Planetary Plants and Universe Undead coming soon! Boost the signal and spread the word!

THE ALIENS HAVE LANDED, and now they are here for 5th Edition, Starfinder, and Pathfinder!

Get them before they get you!

Last but not least, we encourage everyone who hasn’t already to head over to our friends at DrivethruRPG and pick up either the Heroes for Harvey bundle from Legendary Games (featuring three terrific fantasy and sci-fi heroes PDFs to enjoy while you support real-life heroes) and/or the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund Bundle (featuring tons of great products for all systems, over $400 of PDFs), both of them available at HUGE discounts, and with all the proceeds going to local relief organizations and hometown heroes on the front lines of dealing with the devastating storms and massive flooding in South Texas and the Gulf Coast. With wildfires across the West and another hurricane taking aim at the East, this is a time of great trial, so help wherever, whenever, and however you can!

The ALIEN BESTIARY is coming for Starfinder and 5E!

The Stars are Right and it is time for the Aliens to Awaken!

Coming to Kickstarter in September from Legendary Games, an epic encyclopedia of alien adversaries and cosmic creatures perfect for your sci-fi adventuring pleasure, whether you’re playing the brand-new hit Starfinder Roleplaying Game or taking your 5th Edition campaign beyond fantasy and into the stars!

The above is just a cover mock-up (wait until you see the final cover art!), but there is nothing “just” about the Alien Bestiary! This is a full-sized, full-color hardback bestiary featuring over 200 incredible aliens of every description, from tiny robot walking eyes to Lovecraftian Great Old Ones, from humanoid races both friendly and foul to inhuman abominations from the darkest nebulas. Of course, fans of the star-spanning Legendary Planet saga will recognize the fiendish foes like the savage klaven footsoldiers, sinister jagladine genetic engineers, warmongering bil’djooli shock troopers, and many, many more!

In addition, as part of our continued partnership with Robert Brookes and the gang at Encounter Table Publishing, fans of the awe-inspiring Aethera Campaign Setting will also find dozen more exciting additions to their spacefaring saga, from the invading taur and aether-touched infused to the organic symbionts, living machine phalanx, and, of course, the magnificently malevolent kytons!

But wait, there’s MORE!

That promise of 200 marvelous monsters is just the starting point. As our Kickstarter goes along, we’ll be adding tons of terrific space-dwelling monsters from across the fantasy/sci-fi legendarium, from insidious intellect devourers and aboleth to parasitic viper vines, brain-eating neh-thalggu, space-warping hounds of Tindalos, murderous gugs, lethal lunarmas, a plenthora of robots,  and spectacular star-soaring solar dragons! Best of all, when you back this project YOU get to help decide which monsters make the cut! Vote early and often for your favorite featured creatures as we keep adding more and more to this beautiful book!

But wait, that’s STILL not all!

This project will go as high as you send it, and if you push us far and fast enough, you might just get an Alien Bestiary 2 in the equation! If this project explodes into orbit and beyond, we don’t want you to sit there waiting for months on end as we hammer through an entire asteroid worth of material. When we hit a certain mark, we’ll cut loose the first Alien Bestiary like a booster rocket and get that book out to you right away while we continue to soar into the sequel!

Besides straight-up monster books to equip your campaign, we also are hard at work creating the Alien Codex, an expansive look at selected alien races featuring a variety of stat blocks for typical examples of those races across multiple levels, from okanta runebreakers and wasteland shamans to hetzuud slayers and void sorcerers, plus bonus content unique to each race in the vein of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Monster Codex. If we hit the marks we think we will, the Alien Codex will split like an embryo, giving birth to a twin product, the Aethera Codex, featuring rich and detailed campaign setting lore for each of the races of the Aethera Campaign Setting unique to that bounded stellar system that blends magic and technology with steampunk noir and cosmic horror!

This project has been underway for some time, and we have nearly 200 characters and creatures complete for 5E and closing in on half that many for Starfinder Roleplaying Game already complete, with a ton of artwork already in hand or in process and a brand-new team working on this project so that progress on this new project will not derail completion of any outstanding obligations. The Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium is almost ready to release, likely next week for Pathfinder backers and by mid-September for 5E, and the latest chapter in the Legendary Planet saga, Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons, is likewise heading into layout now that the GenCon madness has passed, though one of our layout artists suffered an injury at the con and may be out of commission for a while, so please pray for his swift and healthy recovery even as we bring on two additional layout people to help carry the load.

Of course you realize…

You know, Legendary Games doesn’t just stop running when we’ve got a big Kickstarter project going. In addition to all our regular awesome offerings, from fantasy adventures like The Horseshoe Calamity and Whisperer in the Dark to excellent accessories like Legendary Gunslingers and Legendary Brawlers for Pathfinder and Treasury of the Machine and Pirate Ships for 5E, alongside Legendary Worlds coming soon for Starfinder and 5E, we also are taking the new Starfinder Roleplaying Game classes like the soldier, mystic, and solarian and bringing them back to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game! One good turn deserves another, and people wanting to add in the tasty new interstellar flavor to their classic campaign shouldn’t be left out in the cold either! While your eyes are on the skies, those aliens might just awaken right back at home!

Oh, and just one more thing:

THE HYPE ASTROTRAIN HAS NO BRAKES!!!

The first installment in this series for 5th Edition, Legendary Worlds: Volretz (5E), is complete and ready for layout, though due to travel and time commitments by our layout staff in and around GenCon, it may not be ready for release until later this month, after the con. We will see if we can get it out for you beforehand, but even if not it’ll be ready for you before the end of August for sure! Similarly, the Starfinder Roleplaying Game versions of both Legendary Worlds books already out are heading to layout soon and will be in the queue for after GenCon.

This new edition of To Worlds Unknown (Starfinder) kicks off the action for your soldiers, solarians, technomancers, and envoys right at 1st level and takes them on a pulse-pounding action-adventure through collapsing prison planets, escaped alien monstrosities, malevolent genetic engineers, and most dangerous of all the corrupt metropolis of a crossroads world!

Of course, we have much, MUCH more coming your way soon. In addition to those day-one releases, we have the following books already in production and scheduled for completion in the next month or two:

And we’re not stopping there! Those are just the products ALREADY on the way. Once that wave is up and out, you also can look forward to Starfinder supplements like these:

  • All other Legendary Planet adventures – Dead Vault Descent, Confederates of the Shattered Zone, The Depths of Desperation, Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons, and the epic climax, To Kill a Star!
  • Planetary Heroes – A full set of ready-to-play pregenerated characters with detailed backstories and histories, perfect for crewmates, rival adventurers,

The latest LEGENDARY PLANET is here!

From the deranged scrivenings of the redoubtable Richard Pett comes the latest adventure in the star-spanning interplanetary saga – Confederates of the Shattered Zone! This massive hundred-page book includes a harrowing adventure for 11th-14th level characters through a polluted puritanical post-industrial paradise of cyborg fanatics, asteroid mines, and long-buried horrors crawling forth to infest body and mind alike, but that’s not all! You also get brand-new monsters, magic and technological items, cybernetic enhancements, a gazetteer of the asteroid field, and the latest in Chris A. Jackson’s ongoing fiction series! You can pick up this adventure today for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition at the following places:

Pathfinder – Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand Amazon

5E – Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand Amazon

We are also delighted with the response to last Friday’s release of Asian Archetypes: Magical, with over a dozen new character options for infusing the magic of the Far East into your campaign, and I’ve just completed my final review of the layout on its sequel, Asian Bloodlines, with over 20 bloodrager and sorcerer bloodlines drawing on the myths and legends of the Orient, from nagas and rakshasas to kitsune, tengu, and imperial dragons! There’s also a little Asian flavor in the upcoming Legendary Kineticists II, which we’ll preview more later but for now how about a sneak peek at another great piece of artwork!

However, it’s not all about Asia! For a fantastic resource for featuring the fey in your campaign, we’ve also sent Faerie Mysteries (5E) to layout, and it will be on its way soon, and we’re happy to provide a preview of that for all our 5E fans!

Faerie Mysteries explores the influence of fey creatures and the faerie realms on a 5th Edition campaign world. It is not so much about monsters and magic as it is about how the influence of the fey can change the feel and flow of a campaign, and it gives you a game-mechanical system for describing and representing that in-breaking of raw, untamed, primal magic that make the fey what they are. Fey do not simply walk about within the world; they carry their version of the world along with them, and make our world more like theirs with every step. The rumors and ripples and ruptures in our reality really lay the groundwork for enriching any campaign where civilization is not the only power in the world, and where the force and spirit of nature can push right back.

 

Like its companion product, Faerie Passions, this product provides a fantastic primer on the use of fey creatures in a campaign, balancing the hardcore game rules with explorations of fey creatures’ mythological origins and role in real-life history and legends. What this product is really about is making fey different, to make them strange, unpredictable, and menacing in turn. They are never quite what you expect, and this product describes subtle shifts you can use to create an interesting variety of alternate creatures. The fey represent the raw and wild extremes of the life and spirit of the land and those that dwell within it, possessed of a mercurial emotionality and an integration with the natural world that flits between an impossibly saturated hyper-reality and the dreamily surreal. A campaign featuring the fey should feel different than other campaigns, and when you introduce Faerie Mysteries, it will.

Of course, we can’t miss a chance to remind you to SAVE BIG MONEY RIGHT NOW with the incredible 60 BOOKS, 30 BUCKS PATHFINDER MEGA-BUNDLE and the 20 FOR 20 5E MEGA-BUNDLE!  Save over 80% on 5E products and over 90% on Pathfinder products with these incredible deals! You can get this bundle all month long right here at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG, and next month at Paizo! 5E fans can get in on the fun too, with the 20 FOR 20 5E MEGA-BUNDLE, available at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG!
