Sci-Fi Friday Mutates and Evolves and Builds!

This fantastic Friday we have some amazing new books for 5E, Starfinder, and Pathfinder too! Brand-new for you from the malevolent minds of Mike Myler, Jason Nelson, and Clinton J. Boomer we are pleased to present Mutants and Mad Scientists, a fabulous 40-page 5th Edition encyclopedia of all kinds of sinister science and bad medicine! You’ll find spells, feats, class features, monsters, and more all built around the blighted biology of mutation and steampunk science of genetic engineering in all its horrible grotesquerie! You can introduce these elements anywhere horror features in your campaign, or have it rely on discovery of the eldritch tomes described within that reveal their terrible secrets to any mad enough to read them. You also can introduce the all-new mad scientist character class, complete with its own archetypes, and an entire system of enhanced non-magical medicine from relatively benign surgery to sadistic torments of body horror, grafting, and manipulation of bone, blood, and brain. You can grab this exciting encyclopedia of murderous medicine right now in PDF, print, and bundles at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand Amazon!

 

On top of that, it was just a week ago when we released the epic Star Empires for Starfinder! This incredible 100-page supplement provides extensive rules for exploring new worlds, planting your colonial flag, and establishing an interplanetary empire through diplomacy or conquest! It includes rules for random generation of new worlds, including both the natural biomes, atmosphere, and other natural conditions along with the kinds of colonies and societies already there, with sample colonies, empires, and military units. You also get flexible and modular colony creation rules alongside an abstract and easy to use mass combat system, random events at both the colony level and the empire-wide level. Kingdom-building takes a massive evolutionary step with Star Empires and you can grab a copy today in PDF, print, or a bundle of both at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon

Now if you love the idea of building up your characters to lordly status but your tastes run more to fantasy than sci-fi, fear not! You can check out the incredible  Ultimate Strongholds by Ben Walklate and Jason Nelson! This marvelous 46-page supplement not only covers a ton of rules expansions for buildings, fortifications, magical augmentations, exotic materials, siege warfare and weapons, and the like, but it also bridges the gap from the individual adventurer level with downtime rules, capital and construction, and kingdom building and mass combat. It also provides tons of options for GMs and players alike to create cloud castles, hedge forts, crystal palaces, necromantic flesh piles and ghostly redoubts, and more, with rules for exploring and breaching these fantastic fortresses. Add in over two dozen spells from spiritual pike wall to elemental architecture and haunted ruin, and even a new castellan prestige class for managing every detail of castle defense! When your heroes want to skip the common room at the inn and step up to a place of their own (or when the GM wants to design some truly amazing lairs to explore), you need to pick up Ultimate Strongholds today, available in print, PDF, and print/PDF bundles at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon

Pirates for Everyone – and so much more!

The last few weeks have been abuzz with activity, getting books out the door and shipping literally HUNDREDS of copies of the Pirate Campaign Compendium for Pathfinder and the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition out to our backers, along with tons of bonus books they pledged for. In fact, we’ve been so busy that we’ve sent out ALL of our backer and preorder copies of the Pirate Campaign Compendium (Pathfinder) and that means… YO HO, YO HO A PIRATE’S LIFE FOR EVERYBODY! Even if you missed the amazing nautical Kickstarter this spring, you can now get your very own 500-page print copy or print/PDF bundle at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

Fulfillment on the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium is rolling merrily along as well, and once we’ve got all of our backer books out the door those books will likewise be available to everyone in the general public, hopefully before the end of June. We’ll definitely have copies of both books in time for GenCon!

Speaking of Kickstarters, the Fates of Madness Card Game Kickstarter is over halfway to its funding goal in just the first week! We are excited to see how far this game will go as we begin building a new audience for this new product line from Legendary Games and our partner on this project, Mythica Games. The team is traveling to numerous cons throughout the summer in support of the game, which they’ve been demo-ing and playtesting for months now, and we’re excited to have the project nearing completion where we’ll be ready to make it happen. Check out the Kickstarter right here, and the first update for a gameplay video!

Last but not least, we wanted to throw out a quick preview for Legendary Barbarians, the latest new class book for Pathfinder from Jeff Gomez, Jason Nelson, and N. Jolly! What will you find between these pages?

Legendary Barbarians is the latest volume in our series of class-focused player supplements, this time focusing on the fearsome barbarians! This core class has long been a staple of fantasy settings, representing both the power of anger and the rejection of civilization. Legendary Barbarians enhances these ideas with a streamlined redesign of the class that provides flexibility, flavor, and ferocity in a class that can tear your enemies apart! With Legendary Barbarians, the barbarian is able to choose the benefits of her rage, opening the class up to a limitless variety of concepts. Enlarging rage increases the barbarian’s size (Hulk Smash), while invincible rage lets her shrug off attacks with ease. Bestial rage transforms the barbarian to an animal and vicious rage sacrifices her hit points for greater damage. Dozens of alternate class features allow a piece-by-piece construction of your perfect barbarian, while 11 new archetypes (such as the mutagenic rager, slavering nightmare, and righteous berserker) tie your abilities together in a theme. The savage archetype trades out rage for a more stoic approach. The fury cannot stop raging. All this, plus new feats (like Wield Halfling), items, brands, and more!

The book is getting its final development pass this weekend and then it’s off to the layout queue to get ready for YOU! Get ready… THERE WILL BE BLOOD!
