Wuxia, Wizardry, and Week 2 of MEGA-BUNDLE MANIA!

This week we are excited to bring you another awesome Asian-themed product in the enchanting Asian Archetypes: Magical by Jason Nelson and David N. Ross! This fantastic Far East book is coming in wide release on Friday, but you can get it RIGHT NOW exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore! 

Asian Archetypes: Magical brings you an incredible array of new Pathfinder Roleplaying Game class options for characters drawing upon the classic tropes and traditions of Asian fantasy! You’ll find 14 awesome archetypes here covering almost every field of magic imaginable. You’ll find hermits of the wild like miko shamans drawing their power from kami spirits and wushen wizards relying on primitive fetishes and obsessive taboos, as well as worldly and urbane arcane academics like the studious numerologist wizard and the origamist arcanist. For some, magic is a tool to serve a higher purpose, whether jinshi wizards upholding the state and its bureaucracy or censor inquisitors ensuring purity of thought. Bodhisattva paladins and jade fist bloodragers each seek purification of themselves and the world from the taint of evil, while kenja clerics seek the subtle pleasures of peaceful contemplation and spreading tranquility wherever they roam. The roaring thunder of raiden shamans and the booming fireworks of skyflower savant alchemists embody the opposite extreme, but even their bombast pales before the nearly suicidal devotion to destruction that is the daily bread  of a kaiju caller summoner! Whether you’re playing a completely Asian campaign or just want to add a dash more Asian spice to the ninjas, samurai, and more in your game, you’ll find a wealth of exciting new opportunities in Asian Archetypes: Magical. Pick up this 30-page character supplement today and Make Your Game Legendary! 

Because we just kept adding more cool stuff, we ended up spinning Asian Bloodlines off into its own separate product by Jason Nelson, Alex Augunas, and David N. Ross, focusing on bloodrager and sorcerer bloodlines on the same pan-Asian theme, and this book is in layout as we speak and should be ready in the next week or two. For a quick preview:

Asian Bloodlines brings you an awesome array of new options for spontaneous spellcasters in your Pathfinder Roleplaying Game campaign, drawn from the myths and legends of fantasy Asia! Inside you’ll find over 20 dynamic and exciting bloodlines for sorcerers and bloodragers alike! Whether your heroes are descended from the clever kitsune or the treacherous kappa, the friendly and protective kami spirits or the seductively sinister rakshasa, or the imperial dragons that span every part of the alignment spectrum, you’ll find options here for you. Feathered tengu sword saints and noble naga bloodlines stand alongside those of the savage oni or the imperious descendants of kings and emperors, with mutated bloodlines for kitsune, nagas, and oni as well! If you want to bring a touch of the Orient to sorcery in your campaign, Asian Bloodlines is your ticket to ride!

But wait, there’s more! In real-life a number of our artists are from Asia, and long-time Legendary favorite Tanyaporn Sangsnit has brought her terrific talents to the upcoming Legendary Kineticists 2, which is next up in the layout queue, and we thought we’d feature one of her amazing illustrations here as well (and just wait until you see her own personal take on a red-hot muay thai master channeling her inner power to kick some serious tail!).

We are also looking forward to the Legendary debut of Carl Cramer who teamed up with Jason Nelson on Legendary Hybrids: Doomguard, and you’ll be seeing more previews on that soon, along with many more marvelous and magnificent books coming soon, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t also 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!

Midweek is for Monks!

After 135 products in 2016, we are pleased to present the first new Legendary product of the new year, Legendary Monks , a 40-page love letter to the masters of the martial arts by Jason Nelson, Clinton J. Boomer, and Jesse Benner! Get dozens of new archetypes, feats, monk vows, qinggong powers, and more for both standard monks and unchained monks, from pain-loving flagellants to super-speedster tempests and everything in between! You can grab it right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

The Asian love is roaring to a finish as well, not only with Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza following our massive monks book into layout, but to go one step further tonight I am sending the Asian Spell Compendium off to layout. This started out as just a portion of Asian Archetypes: Magical but by the time it finally reached 110 NEW SPELLS it really needed to be a product of its own. With spells for every school and 20 spellcasting classes, from ancestral wrath to word of pain, with offensive spells like flame shuriken, tiger trap, and blessed jade strike and defensive incantations like spirit ward, toad’s kiss, and sublime detachment, from minor magics like awful apparition, drowsy fireflies, and punji pit to mighty enchantments like divine wind, rain of sacred lotus petals, terra cotta legion, and the deadly marvelous chopsticks. Whether you favor arcane, divine, or psychic spells, tapping the power of elements or magic of the mind, you’ll find an incredible array of new and inventive spells perfect for introduction into an all-Asian campaign or one that simply draws a bit here and there from the magic and mystery of the unapproachable east.

For those who enjoy the politics and courtly intrigues back home as a delightful supplement to the hack and slash of the dungeon and trailblazing the wilderness, Ultimate Factions is also nearing completion, and we are painfully close to some exciting new releases in the world of Legendary Planet! Keep your eyes peeled, because there is some great stuff coming your way very soon!

Legacy products finally coming soon!

FINALLY!
 
Here at Legendary Games, I have a handful of projects that I’ve been working on, on and off, for literally YEARS. Things keep coming up and they just never quite seem to get finished, and 2016 was supposed to be the year stuff GETS DONE.
 
Well, now it is! One of those legacy projects, once called “Way of the Blade” and featuring a bunch of cool Asian-themed character options, eventually sprouted into three companion volumes, and the first of those just went off to layout!
 
Asian Archetypes: Martial by N. Jolly, Jason Nelson, Jesse Benner, and David N. Ross is officially in the pipeline and should be ready for you soon, featuring a dozen new archetypes for martial classes, plus a very detailed character ready to use out of the box to show off some of the neat new stuff in here. Check out the table of contents!
 
Archetypes
Bloodrider (Cavalier Archetype)
SIDEBAR: Bloodrider Mounted Combat feats
Hyakusho (Fighter Archetype)
Iajutsu Adept (Swashbuckler Archetype)
Imperial Unifier (Samurai Archetype)
Kaiju Hunter (Ranger Archetype)

Mercurial Duelist (Vigilante Archetype)
SIDEBAR: Oriental Vigilante talents

Thanks to everybody for making this project come to life, and get ready for the companion volumes, one focusing on monks and one on magical characters, to be coming your very soon. These books, plus Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza (which is well along in development), should put a cap on the Far East AP Plug-Ins line, which was the second line we launched at Legendary Games.
 
I look forward to tying up the loose ends on this and on some of our other product lines with an outstanding legacy product, like Fort Scurvy (Pirates) and Royal Tournaments (River Kings) and, of course, ULTIMATE ARMIES!
 
Coming soon. Progress feels good!!! PS – Here’s an art preview of the lovely and talented Kozue Kaburagi, courtesy of the terrific Tanyaporn Sangsnit!

5E Friday with Martial Arts and METAL!

Last month we released The Way of Ki, a 5th Edition supplement greatly expanding the options for characters and ki, not just for monks but for characters of every class. Today we are pleased to present a fantastic followup to that expansion (though it can be used without it) in Meditations of the Imperial Mystics, a collection of four ancient tomes and texts of Eastern wisdom. Each one has its own history and flavor, and understanding their mystic secrets can be fraught with peril, but each is a unique treasure to be found by the heroes unaware of its nature, or you can drop clues about their existence and have the track them down in search of the hidden power within Body Outside Body, Instructions of Yin-Blood and Thundering Yang, Prayers of Empty Flesh and Undying Ki, and Seven Ghost Needles! You can pick up this great 5E supplement for just 4.99 at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

What’s Down in Those Mines; It Ain’t of This World!

A strange craft fallen from the stars, long the home of a tribe of monstrous mutants worshiping the long-forgotten technology in its ruined bowels, has birthed a new and fearsome scourge. Alien prisoners once bound in its holds have escaped from the derelict, bringing terror and death to a poor mining town while a lone android marshal wanders the wasteland seeking these escaped interplanetary convicts. The heroes find themselves stalked in turn by an unearthly abomination in a twisting catacomb of mines and must dare the precarious ruins of the dangling spacecraft embedded in the cliffs if they are to stop the conquering forerunners of an ancient empire buried centuries ago from rising again to pick up where they left off… with world domination!
