Eldritch Elementals is HERE! And even more Fall Fantasy!

Our Fantasy Fall continues today with the release of Eldritch Elementalism, an exploration of the arts of elemental magic for spellcasters with new archetypes and feats, but also with a dozen dynamic templates for redesigning your elementals in some amazing ways, from shape-altering piscine and predator elementals to consuming elementals, draconic elementals, and even radioactive elementals! If you love working with elementals as a player or GM, you’ve gotta get this today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand soon on Amazon! 

We’ve got even more great winter-themed material coming later this month with Ron Lundeen’s amazing centaur adventure, The Horseshoe Calamity, but before that we’ve got a brand-new monster book long in the making from Thurston Hillman and Jesse Benner to make your medium-sized monsters much, much meaner!

How about a preview of what you’ll find inside NEXT Monday?

Too often in high-level Pathfinder RPG play, your opponents are either high-level NPCs or towering titans of imposing size and strength. There’s nothing wrong with a colossal killing machine, but when you want creatures for your campaign that pack a powerful punch in a size small enough to walk right in the back door, you need Malevolent Medium Monsters! These are not outsiders with a million spell-like abilities, nor complicated classed characters, but honest-to-goodness monsters from CR 11 to 18 ready to terrorize your unsuspecting heroes as they tear them apart! You’ll find the paralytic alabaster beetle, the malformed composite homunculus dragon, the blood-soaked ersatz, the sinister and heretical faithslain, the grotesque misbirthed, and an entire new category of fiendfused monstrous humanoids that drink deeply from the wells of fiendish corruption to achieve an awful apotheosis! Each new creature is designed with full-page portraits, dynamic abilities, and detailed ecology, tactics, and advice on using it in the campaign, whether your heroes are facing invading demon hordes, exploring a wounded wasteland where chaos reigns, or expunging the tainted lineage of an ancient evil!

Of course, our Fall Fantasy kicked off last week with the fabulous 5-star-awesome Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium for Pathfinder, and the 5E version is well along in layout and should be ready for our Kickstarter backers later this month. This fabulous 424-page encyclopedia of adventure is an incredible resource for any wilderness campaign, especially one featuring the fey, with tons of character options, spells, magic items, feats, monsters, and so much more, including rules for tournaments and festivals, sample characters and kingdoms on the borderlands of the wild, and a wealth of incredibly rich material dealing with faeries and the fey realms! You can grab the PDF right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG, and you can preorder the print version and print/PDF bundle exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore!

There’s more great Kickstarter news, as our Legendary Planet project is heading into the final stretch with the release of Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons for Pathfinder to backers, with the 5E version already in layout, plus within the next week or so we should also have Legendary Planet: The Scavenged Codex for Starfinder as well! 

Last but not least, though, we wanted to thank each and every one of you who took the time to hop on board with us on the Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief mega-bundle we ran at DrivethruRPG! They were great partners for this and last month’s Hurricane Harvey bundles, and we thank them for their assistance in helping all of us to help the heroes on the front lines.

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!!!

Forest Aftermath and New Stuff A-Comin’!

This week saw the supremely successful conclusion of our Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium Kickstarter project. We’ve gotten the Monsters chapter to layout and will have the adventures and pregenerated characters there this weekend. We’re managing a fast and furious flurry of artwork approvals and getting final pledges sorted out. If you missed the Kickstarter but would like to do a late pledge, let us know by email at makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.com and we can still set you up!

Of course, with that project now in the books, we can return our attention to a raft of amazing new things coming soon that we’ll be previewing over the coming week. This Monday sees the return of MYTHIC MONDAY with the 48th installment in our long-running series, Mythic Monsters: Fey by Mike Welham, Jason Nelson, and Loren Sieg!

Mythic Monsters: Fey brings you an awesome array of mysterious and magical creatures from the realms of Faerie. These capricious creatures range from CR 1 to CR 20 and include monsters malevolent and benign. Some fey are helpful spirits, from the industrious brownie to the far-striding fastachee cultivating their corn, or the musical grigs fiddling in the night. Others have far more sinister intentions, from anguished fiend-blooded forlarren to sadistic tooth fairies. Like them, gremlins come in many shapes and sizes, all of them notorious from pugnacious nuglub thugs to vengeful jinkin saboteurs. Many fey simply wish to be left alone, like sprites and sprite swarms guarding the wild and beautiful places of the world from intrusion, or the serene and beautiful hamadryad queens who rule the forests. Mortals may seek to bargain with the fey, but woe betide any who double-cross a blood-hungry sangoi or a darkling vilderavn raven knight! As if a dozen existing monsters were not enough, the brand-new horzitoth is a nonesuch, an urban fey that devours dreams and feasts on fatigue, and savoring the loss of sleep for those who welcome it into their homes as an uninvited guest. In addition to the featured creatures, we bring you the fabulous fey-bound knight prestige class, perfect for those heroes of might and magic who have sought service with the lords and ladies of the fey realms!

We also have an exciting new BUNDLE coming next month, new news on Legendary Planet, and much, MUCH more!

Friday is FACTION DAY – and so much more!

Today we are pleased to release the latest in our Ultimate line of products that focus on the world beyond the dungeon – Ultimate Factions by Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate! You can grab Ultimate Factions right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG,  and Amazonstarting at just $5.99!

This 26-page supplement is packed with information on working with rivals, factions, politics, and power brokers in your campaign, whether you’re playing at an individual character party level or using the kingdom-building and management rules from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Campaign and Ultimate Rulership from Legendary Games! Your heroes may love bashing down dungeon doors and looting tombs, but the siren song of the city beckons, and where wealth and power collide that is where they’d better be ready to deal with thieves’ guilds, merchant councils, grasping robber barons, power-hungry priests, skulking spy networks, and more!

But wait, THERE’S MORE! Next Monday will see the triumphant return of MYTHIC MONDAY, with a brand-new batch of mythological monsters for your campaign!

This incredible collection of creatures from the so-called Cradle of Civilization is coming your way, courtesy of Loren Sieg, Victoria Jaczko, and Jason Nelson! Mythic Monsters: Middle East brings you an awesome array of creatures malevolent and benign from the cradle of civilization, with creatures drawn from the mythology and lore of Persia, Mesopotamia, Israel, and Arabia. These incredible creatures range from CR 1 to CR 23, from seemingly the harmless horned almiraj to the hulking warlord humbaba and the soaring two-headed rukh. You will find savage and destructive divs seeking to ruin all that mortals create, from the staring evil eye of the aghash to the sinister whispers of the doru and the unbridled lust of the pairaka. Some Middle Eastern monsters would simply rather be left to their own devices but their wrath kindles hot and their vengeance is fierce, whether they appear to mortals as beautiful godlike nephilim or hideous scorpion-centaur girtablilu. There are spirits of the dead lurking in the shadows, embodying the power of absolute shadow like the owb or possessing mortals and driving them to madness and murder like the dybbuk. You will find guardians of good like the albino peri with their wings of fire, and at the opposite extreme the draconic embodiment of death and decay in the pestilential taniniver. As if a dozen mythic monsters were not enough, we also bring you the rainbow-plumed buraq, a skyfaring steed sent by the powers of heaven to bear the truly worth across the endless night sky. In addition, we present an array of rules for the desolate and deadly desert sands that are ever encroaching on the fertile crescent, bringing nature’s fury and supernatural menace to the dust lands beyond life and hope.

But because we love you, you can get this new mythic monsters book RIGHT NOW exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore!

Next Friday will be bringing you a double-shot of amazing Asian awesomeness, with the fantastic new 20-level class Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza by Jason Nelson and N. Jolly joining the incredible compilation of 110 Asian-themed arcane, divine, and psychic spells for all levels and 20 different casting classes in the Asian Spell Compendium by Jason Nelson! We’ll have more extensive previews coming soon, but suffice to say that if you like an Asian influence even a little bit in your campaign, you are not going to want to miss these two supplements.

Of course, we’ve got other character options coming soon too, with Intrigue Archetypes coming for the Red Queen Adventure Path Plug-Ins and Magitech Archetypes for the Metal Gods Plug-Ins line, both off to layout this week, with yet more amazing material on the way soon! Have a great weekend everybody, and always remember to Make Your Game Legendary!
