Good and Evil and 5E Friday!

We are delighted with the great response to our Book of Exalted Darkness and Book of Celestial Heroes books for 5E, and so it seems are you, with multiple 5-star reviews already coming in! These two books combine for a massive 700 pages of glorious goodness and ineffable evil for 5th Edition, all set in the fantastic decopunk world of Askis. However delightful that setting is, however, some folks just want an encyclopedia of evil options for their own home game, whether for vile villains or to create their own evil-themed campaign setting, and for those people we are proud to present the Book of True Evil for 5E, which takes all the fiendish and fearsome character options, classes, spells, magic items, feats, equipment, and other rules elements from the Book of Exalted Darkness and present them to you in a setting-neutral 164-page book that is wall to wall mechanics and rules resources! If you want the complete package of everything, including tons of incredible setting material, adventures, and more, grab the 414-page Book of Exalted Darkness. If you only need the mechanics, or if you’re looking for a terrific resource to provide to your players without giving away all the setting secrets and adventure spoilers, grab a copy of the Book of True Evil today at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, and DrivethruRPG!

You don’t want to forget the good guys, though, so by all means also grab a copy of the spectacular 286-page Book of Celestial Heroes to give them all the awesome options they need to stand in the breach against every villain of the deepest dye! Grab it today at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG!

Last but not least, we are celebrating the release of the fantastic Pirate Campaign Compendium to our Kickstarter backers for this week. The Pathfinder version is now making its way through the print approvals process and meanwhile our 5E dev team is hard at work getting that version of the book ready for you next month. Meanwhile, you can get a foretaste of the joys to come with the incredible Ultimate Ships for 5E, containing a bushel of rules for both simple and advanced ship-to-ship combat, modular ship design and modification, and dynamic yet easy-to-play fleet battle rules for bringing nautical action to your 5E campaign! You can grab Ultimate Ships at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG

A very good 5E Friday – and Starfinder Saturday!

One of our most popular products recently has been the truly MASSIVE and malevolent 414-page Book of Exalted Darkness (5E)bringing you a wealth of wickedness in terms of rules and options for evil characters and campaigns, as well as the gloriously gonzo decopunk world of Aksis. Some of you fans have asked for more about that world, and what about the good guys there… and so ye shall receive. Coming tomorrow for your reading and playing pleasure, a truly blessed book, the Book of Celestial Heroes, and you can get it today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG

The demigod Celestial Heroes have conquered the world and raised civilization to precipitous heights but only YOU can save it from destruction!

On the eve of evil’s twilight as malevolence nearly became undone on the decopunk utopia of Askis the terrible machinations of rogue mad scientists instilled a vein of corruption throughout the populace. Though they are few these malcontents are irreprensibly vile and in tandem with the foul minds that touched their nascent souls with evil, the world once more needs heroes.

You are one such hero!

What’s in the Book of Celestial Heroes?

  • The goody-two shoes twin of the Book of Exalted Darkness
  • Two new classes–the Exemplar (a hero all about glory) and the revised Feywalker (when flight and fancy are more important)–along with holy archetypes for every class
  • Holy spells
  • Holy rituals
  • Holy feats
  • Heck, there’s even a holy hand grenade (which explodes on the count of 3–not 5, but 3)
  • The decopunk utopia world and Spheres of Askis, great works the PCs must bolster to save civilization from destruction
  • Tailored magic items that become more powerful as an adventurer gains prowess
  • Equipment and inaequa-technology that run the gamut from flashlights to jetpacks and locomotives (along with vehicular combat rules)
  • All the poisons plus a few new ones, diseases galore, and extra madness and insanities
  • Six powerful mad scientist villains each with their own lackeys and lairs joining more than 50 NPCs and monsters
  • Searching the River Styx, a scaling adventure for PCs of 3rd-16th level and just the right thing when the group goes down from an evil TPK!

Rise to the challenge of true goodness and mercy in this 286-page blessed book for 5th Edition today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Our layout team is juuuuuuuuuuuust about done with about a THOUSAND PAGES (not even kidding) of incredible supplements coming your way in the next week or so, but we are sending off the Alien Bestiary Companion to our Kickstarter backers this weekend, and are inches away from doing the same with the Pathfinder version of the Pirate Campaign Compendium. Best of all, RIGHT NOW you can grab the latest incredible installment in the spectacular Legendary Planet adventure saga for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game with Matt Goodall’s love letter to deathless despots, robotic oracles, tidally locked temporal disasters, and high-class heists in Dead Vault Descent, a 106-page mega-module for 8th-10th level characters!

A Spectacularly Sinister 5E Friday, plus previews!

Today marks the diabolical debut of the biggest 5E book we have ever released, the massive and malevolent Book of Exalted Darkness (5E)! This titanic tome of terror is 414 perfidious pages of class options, spells, magic items, archetypes, adventures, technological gear, ready-to-use villainous masterminds, and so much more, all set in a spectacular setting of gleaming golden decopunk glory with a beating heart of ineffable darkness.

Traveling through eerie and ancient wooded riverlands, a foraging party is long overdue in the gloaming dusk. The hunters from a backwoods village of degenerate and inbred woodfolk are surely bloodthirsty enough for an ambush, but can your allies be found bound in their hovels, or is a more sinister happening afoot? The shadow of witchcraft stained with the essence of malevolence from beyond time and space draws the heroes to the ragged hilltop manor, where the corrupted scions of a once-noble bloodline strain the veil between this world and the realms of pure madness beyond. What is left of their clan, and of the friends who may have been spirited away to Whisper House? Check out this terrifying Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 8th-level characters today and Make Your Game Legendary!

A lovely day for Heroes!

Today we want to celebrate the good guys, and they have a lot to celebrate!  If you’ve been following the Book of Exalted Darkness 5E Kickstarter by Mike Myler and Savannah Broadway (you know, just to keep an eye on the dastardly villains), you already know that this incredible sinister decopunk campaign setting is nearly at its funding goal, but better still after having hit 120 backers it has unlocked the Book of Celestial Heroes as an add-on product, opening up an awesome array of options for the good guys who want to keep the world on the straight and narrow! This project has 10 days left to go, and we’ll be releasing ANOTHER free preview PDF as part of 5E Friday, so get ready for the Evil Primer! Sometimes heroes just need to know how to go bad!

When it comes to BIG heroes, the Mythic Hero’s Handbook is the cornerstone of the biggest project we’ve ever done (so far!), the magnificent Mythic Mania Kickstarter, and this incredible 336-page masterpiece is chock full of so much incredible material it’s hard to know where to start. Indispensable for running a mythic Pathfinder campaign, it also has a wealth of material that can be easily included in a non-mythic campaign wherever your heroes, villains, magic items, skills, traps, curses, psionics, or more need an injection of awesome. We’re calling out this book today because we thought we had sold out the very last copies we had, but in clearing out some storage this week we found about a dozen more copies of the book, the very last copies that exist! If you want a print copy of the magnificent Mythic Hero’s Handbook, now’s the time, because when these ones are gone, that’s the end of the road!

However, there’s even MORE good news about this book – at long last, the mythic trinity is complete for HeroLabThat’s right, after many long months of tireless effort, the COMPLETE Mythic Hero’s Handbook is now available directly from LoneWolf! If you’ve already ordered the book during the phased roll-out, you should have access to all parts of it now. Of course, you also can pick up the spectacular Mythic Spell Compendium and the marvelous Mythic Monster Manual too!

Last but not least, this coming weekend will be the final opportunity to pick up the Top 10 Heroes Bundle – a collection of 80 richly detailed characters for campaigns of every kind, from Gothic horror to Egyptian tombs and from fey forests and pirate seas to the far reaches of interstellar space! You get over 300 pages of fantastic 5-star awesome material for just $10!
