heroes


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!

A final blast of Winter this week!

First of all, we are excited for the diabolical debut this Friday of Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches  by Alex Riggs, the latest installment in our Winter Plug-Ins line!

Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches brings you an incredible resource for the best of the worst when it comes to sinister spellcasters for your Pathfinder Roleplaying Game campaign. Within you’ll find a ton of great new options for witches, including archetypes like the consort of fiends, curio collector, and shadow sister, along with the terrifying hag matron prestige class, complete with special abilities unique to each type of hag. Wicked witches can swear oaths to their eldritch patrons, gaining power through their devotion to natural forces like frost and waves, or to corrupt principles from lies and destruction to hedonism and madness! You’ll also find new hexes like the haruspex and skull sentinel and witch-themed magic items like the broom of chastisement and toxic cauldron. Finally, for witches who want to start play with an otherworldly familiar, you’ll find over a dozen lesser versions of exotic familiars like quasits, imps, rakshasas, and shadow drakes! Whether you are designing epic villains as a GM, or playing a character who taps into the dark side of arcane magic, Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches is a treasure trove of material to help Make Your Game Legendary!

One of the coolest new elements Alex has introduced is the concept of witch oaths, which are sworn to their patron and carry with them unique benefits as well as obeisances the witch must perform to maintain the favor of the mysterious entities that grant their power. For a quick preview, check out the following sample oaths:

Oath of Darkness

You vow to do your best to cover the world in darkness, and chase back the hated light.

Patron: Shadow.

Oath: You must spread darkness and remove light. You cannot create any source of normal or bright light, including lighting torches or lanterns, creating such items, or casting spells that create normal or bright light. At least once per day, you must extinguish a source of normal or bright light that was not lit or created specifically for that purpose.

Benefit: Your magic is more potent in the shadows. The saving throw DCs of your spells and hexes that target a single creature increase by +1 as long as both you and the target are in a single contiguous area of darkness (including supernatural darkness).

Oath of Destruction

You swear to spread entropy and destruction in your wake.

Patron: EntropyHA.

Oath: You swear yourself to be an agent of entropy, hastening the ultimate destruction of all things. Each day, you must either destroy an object or objects worth a total of at least 20 gp per witch level, or kill a total number of Hit Dice worth of intelligent creatures (those with an Intelligence score of 3 or higher) equal to 1/2 your witch level. In either case, the destruction or killing must be done for no other purpose than to fulfill this oath.

Benefit: The saving throw DCs of spells you cast with the death descriptor, as well as spells that deal damage to objects or destroy objects, increase by +1. Additionally, you gain a +2 bonus on saving throws made to resist death effects.

In honor of this new Winter release, and to celebrate the last week of winter, we are also pleased to present Winter Heroes by Liz Courts as our TWO$DAY product of the week – 8 incredible winter-themed characters with rich and detailed backstories and personalities, ready to drop into any campaign but especially one featuring the fey or the wild and woolly winterlands of the far-distant poles. Grab it this week 70% off for just $2!

Last but not least, we are pleased to continue our incredible 60 BOOKS, 30 BUCKS Pathfinder MEGA-BUNDLE at Paizo.com! The same spectacular savings – over 90% off on 60 Pathfinder PDFs totaling 1,487 pages and with a regular sale price of $337!

But all good things must come to an end, and TOMORROW, 3/15, IS THE IDES OF MARCH, and it signals the END of these amazing bundle deals elsewhere. Tomorrow is your last chance to get the 60 BOOKS, 30 BUCKS Pathfinder MEGA-BUNDLE at the Open Gaming Store and DrivethruRPG and the 20 FOR 20 5E MEGA-BUNDLE at the Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG!

Speaking of gaming products inspired by the myths and legends of Earth, we are also happy to present a new TWO$DAY product of the week, though this one is best suited for the dusty deserts and ancient monoliths of Egypt and its fantasy equivalents. In celebration of the latest 5-star seal of approval for Legendary Games, we are pleased to present Egyptian Heroes this week at 70% off – just $2 for 8 incredibly detailed and lavishly illustrated pregenerated characters to use as allies, contacts, rivals, or even new recruits to an adventuring party of delving into the dusty tombs of long-fallen civilizations!

We have already gotten March off to a magnificent start with great new products like our first One Player Adventure, Orphans of the Hanged Man, and the latest fey supplement for 5E with Faerie Mysteries, and our Kickstarter backers are even more excited because today they have received the latest chapter of the star-spanning saga of Legendary Planet with Dead Vault Descent for Pathfinder, with the 5E version heading to layout next weekend!

Even more exciting stuff is coming on a fast train, with Legendary Kineticists II and Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches fighting it out in a celebrity death match to see who gets to come out this Friday and who has to wait until next week. We’ll have previews for both books coming your way soon, but… OWW, HEY STOP THA…

Trueno here. We’re not waiting. Preview now.

Legendary Kineticists II unleashes the true potential of the kineticist class with a vast array of new kinetic options, starting with 8 amazing archetypes for both kineticists, like the onslaught blaster and telekinetic bladeshifter, as well as for other classes like the planar custodian druid and order of the scion cavalier. You’ll also find dozens of new infusions, wild talents, and kinetic feats and spells to enhance your kineticists of every specialty. In addition, you can expand the bounds of kinetics like never before with the kinetic mystic prestige class, variant multiclassing for kineticists, and a complete 20-level rebuild of the core kinetic class, the legendary kineticist! On top of everything else, you will also find Trueno, herald of the White Sky, a richly detailed kineticist master complete with combat tactics and a compelling history and personality, to show how these powers play at the table in a ready-to-use character you can drop right into an existing game or even build an entire campaign around. Add Legendary Kineticists II to your Pathfinder campaign today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Witches can wait. Trueno out!

… okay, well in that case let the previews start now. I have a bad feeling what the witches are going to do for an encore, but I think hexes will be involved somewhere.

Winter Is Coming… Legendary Style!

Tonight will be the longest night of the year, and tomorrow marks the official start of winter. Thus far in December, Legendary Games has been playing against type, releasing products ranging from our first family-friendly adventure Into the Feyweald to creepy psychics in Occult Character Codex: Occultists, to a slew of products suited to the sizzling sands of ancient empires, like Mythic Monsters: Egypt and THREE new Egyptian-themed adventures all rapidly approaching release. But make no mistake, WINTER IS COMING!

Zakhar - 7

While some of our product lines are approaching their conclusion, we are pleased to announce the advent of a new line of Adventure Path Plug-Ins ideally suited for the Witches of Winter AP as well as any campaign that ventures into the cold places of the world (or to other worlds entirely), especially those drawing up on the legends and lore of Eastern Europe (and a bit of Scandinavia thrown in as well). These Winter AP Plug-Ins will be kicking off in January with the latest entry in our fantastic Heroes series, the first in this line penned by a hand other than Legendary co-founder Neil Spicer. These Winter Heroes instead spring from the marvelous mind of Liz Courts! No stranger to LG, Liz laid out a number of our products in 2012, but this will mark her authorial debut, and we are delighted to bring her love for the subject matter and design skills to the table, along with an assortment of amazing artwork from Bob Greyvenstein, who also delivered the knockout designs you’ve seen in Metal Heroes and Nautical Heroes

Next in line, we’ll be bringing you the Treasury of Winter, a collection of marvelous magic items themed for the depths of winter. From cheery items like the candle-crown of holly, welcome wreath, and festive fox fur to the sinister howling horn and Krampus bag, you’ll find an assortment of items drawn from cultures that dwell in the boreal climes where summer is but a distant dream. Following that, Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches is slated to follow, and yet more to come. If you love the sight of falling snow and the howl of hungry wolves, it is time to celebrate. Winter is not just coming, the bleak midwinter is practically here!
