Aethera is HERE-A, time to go APE in the final 60 hours!

Thanks to all of your support, the time for Aethera is NOW with the Alien Bestiary Project! The opening salvo in this all-out Aethera Assault is adding TEN terrific new iconic heroes for 5E, Starfinder, and Pathfinder, two each of the humans, the aetherite-tainted infused, the beast-bodied okanta, the green-hearted erahthi, and the mechanical phalanx, each with detailed backstories and personalities, multiple levels of stat blocks, and bonus content for each race!

With this added content, the awesome Alien Codex is now up over 200 pages, with much more yet within reach in the final days of this project! Next up comes our third book, the fantastic Aethera Field Guide, and we are already on a fast train to unlocking it at $30,000, with even more Aetheric Aliens added to the Alien Codex  and awesome extraterrestrial enemies in the Alien Bestiary! All told, we’re already around 500 pages of spectacular space and sci-fi adventure content, with 600 pages easily within reach!

Pledge today for the Alien Bestiary, Alien Codex, and Aethera Field Guide

Kickstarter Ends September 30 at 10:00 PM Pacific time!

This is a complex project because we’re making several different things at the same time, so we just wanted to recap the basic breakdown in how to get what you want!

For 5E or Starfinder:

1. Alien Bestiary (space monsters)

2. Alien Codex (alien races, an “NPC bestiary” of standard characters, and iconic heroes)

3. Aethera Field Guide (variant monsters, in-depth ecologies, monster lore, setting material)

4. Add-on pledge of Legendary Planet starter kit (first 100-page adventure + player’s guide)

 

For Pathfinder:

1. Alien Bestiary Companion (a smaller book of space monsters, since many space monsters already exist in official Pathfinder bestiaries)

2. Alien Codex (as above)

3. Aethera Field Guide (as above)

4. Add-on pledge of Legendary Planet starter kit (first 100-page adventure + player’s guide)

5. Aethera Campaign Setting (580-page sci-fi campaign book; about 130 pages of Pathfinder mechanics and 450 pages of system-neutral campaign setting)

There are also other add-ons for bonus swag items, our awesome plastic pawns, and so on. Your best options for pledging are:

 

If you only want the Alien Bestiary: Space Cadet ($25) for PDF, Space Ranger ($50) for print+PDF [the “Companion” pledges with the same names are if you want the smaller Pathfinder book instead]

If you want two books: Alien Assault ($40 PDF, $90 print+pdf)

If you want three books: Alien Invasion ($60 PDF, $130 print+pdf)

If you want four books: Alien Onslaught ($80 PDF, $170 print/pdf)

 

If you order multiple books, there aren’t separate pledges for every combination. You just tell us which books you want and for which system (5E, Pathfinder, or Starfinder) in our backer survey at the end. You can combine them in any way you like.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us, and we implore each of you to make one final post or push on your social media to let folks know about this terrific project. We are so thankful for all of your support and know we are looking forward to a fantastic finish!

Oh, and about going APE? I just love getting new artwork in…

It’s a Starfinder Saturday with a new world, plus Undead Approaching the Alien Bestiary!

Today is a spectacular sci-fi Saturday as we unveil the latest of our Legendary Worlds, a dead world, a fading and nameless red sun, a virtually uncharted system, and a name whispered in fear and dread: Terminus. Inside its endless tunnels, the dregs and scoundrels of the galaxy mix with generations who have never breathed free air in a tainted ultramax prison where black flames consume soul and flesh while soulless wardens keep their pitiless vigil. New drugs, gear, and hazards await, along with a detailed planetary gazetteer, adventure hooks, and the deadly Terminus warden and blackfire wight! You can grab this chilling new planet for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game today (and next week for 5th Edition and Pathfinder) starting at just $3.99 at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG!

We also are about to enter the final week of the amazing Alien Bestiary Kickstarter for Starfinder, Pathfinder, and 5E, as we are over 2.5 times our original funding goal, having crashed through stretch goal after stretch goal with many more to come! We’ve are about to unleashed our fourth backer poll where YOU get to decide which monsters go into the final book with Universe Undead, so you can decide whether you want to see classic favorites like the shadow, spectre, and wraith or stranger spirits like the insane allip, the sharpshooting baykok and pale stranger, the armored spaceknight fext, the mysterious caller in darkness, and many more!

We’ve already unlocked awesome add-ons like two sets of fantastic clear plastic pawns for the monsters of the Alien Bestiary and the heroes and villains of the Alien Codex, with dozens and dozens of ready-to-play NPCs from every level and filling dozens of roles in a sci-fi campaign, along with variant creatures, iconic heroes with rich backstories at multiple levels, and more! Next up is a deep dive into the Aethera Campaign Setting with tons of great new races and iconic aliens from that setting for the Alien Codex, as well as unlocking the incredible Aethera Field Guide at $30,000!

Check us out talking with James Introcaso on the Tabletop Babble podcast about sci-fi and fantasy monsters and adventure design, and of course about the Alien Bestiary project too!

The 5th Edition version of the book is already well along in layout and we should be getting it to you in the near future, along with the fantastic Art and Map Folio of all of the incredible illustrations from this book. It will be going on sale to the general public soon as well, so if you love hard-core old-school fantasy full of wilderness exploration, carving a kingdom and a name for yourself out of the unforgiving wilderness, and dealing with tricksy fey of the forest and finding fortune and glory in the wild or on the tourney field, you have got to grab a copy of this incredible encyclopedia of adventure! Monsters, magic items, spells, character options, two complete adventures, iconic heroes, abundant rules for incorporating the mystery and wonder of the fey into your campaign, and massive rules for archery, jousting, athletics, and crazy contests from the simple delights of a county fair to high-fantasy events of incredible difficulty and spectacular magnificence!

As that Kickstarter winds to a close, of course, the Alien Bestiary Kickstarter for 5E, Starfinder, and Pathfinder keeps soaring higher and higher, standing on the cusp of doubling our funding goal and unlocking the amazing Alien Codex, a terrific collection of ready-to-use space and sci-fi NPCs, alien races, iconic heroes, and new rules elements to accompany the 200+ alien creatures, and coming soon the Aethera Field Guide, with even more variant alien creatures, deliciously detailed interplanetary setting material, and new rules for what to do with your newly discovered extraterrestrials!

Check out the Alien Bestiary Kickstarter today – just a few hundred away from $20,000!

Finally, with so many large and small projects going on at once, Legendary Games is always on the lookout for assistance in the layout department.
