The wait is over, and now the tale can be told…

Welcome to the worlds of AETHERAbrought to you by Encounter Table Publishing and Legendary Games!

 

These two great companies have teamed up to bring you the very best in beautiful, richly detailed, expertly crafted, intricately designed, and most of all flat-out fun sci-fi/fantasy products possible for your game. Many Legendary Games and Encounter Table Publishing authors and artists have worked together individually, but with a shared commitment to creating gaming supplements of unsurpassed quality, it is a joy and a delight to join forces on this project and many more going forward. You will not believe what Robert Brookes and I are cooking up for next year, but that’s another story. This awesome alliance begins RIGHT NOW with an exclusive one-week presale of the Aethera Campaign Setting right here at the Legendary Games webstore before it goes into wide release next Friday!

What is the Aethera Campaign Setting?

This magnificent and MASSIVE (nearly 600 pages) interplanetary adventure setting combines hard sci-fi, cosmic horror, magical fantasy, alien invasions, and mystical noir in a unique blend that suits all manner of genre-crossing campaigns. It’s a spectacular setting to use on its own with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules, as a more sci-fi-heavy companion to the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, or as a more magical setting for the upcoming Starfinder Roleplaying Game.

The Aethera Campaign Setting includes a vast amount of world-building and lore for the war-torn planets of a binary star system, with rich and evocative history, politics, religion, and more. You’ll also find over a hundred pages of character class options alone, including the brand-new cantor class and dozens of new archetypes, feats, skill unlocks, and more, plus extensive chapters detailing new playable races, magic items, technology, and monsters galore!

The Aethera Campaign Setting only grows from there, with a ton of expansions on the way, including adventures like Wanted in the Wastes by Amber Scott, Beacon in the Black and Murder in the Midlands by Isabelle Lee, and Children of the Collapse by Mike Welham all coming soon. We have even more terrific supplements in production already with the Intrigue Manual for characters and the Aethertech Manual offering new options for their spacefaring aetherships! You can always find the latest at the AetheraRPG.com website, and you can check out sneak previews and playtest events at PaizoCon and GenCon!

As if that were not enough, you also can find an awesome array of sci-fi/fantasy supplements for your Aethera campaign from Legendary Games in our Legendary Planet and Metal Gods product lines, from class supplements like Cyborgs, Magitech Archetypes, and The Robot Summoner and ready-to-play characters in Metal Heroes and Planetary Heroes, to magic items, monsters, adventures, and more!

We thank the Kickstarter backers who made this book possible, and having sent them their PDFs we are now ready to offer it to you right here for a one-week presale before it goes into wide release next Friday! You can get this 583-page PDF for just $29.99, and we are also offering the print and print/PDF bundles for preorder now at $59.99 and $79.99, respectively. After much deliberation, we decided to do a full print run of this book and we hope to have it available by GenCon in August, for pickup at the convention and for shipping soon thereafter.

Welcome to a whole new world of interplanetary adventure with the Aethera Campaign Setting! We hope you enjoy using these books as much as we enjoyed making them. Grab this incredible book today and keep an eye out for even more great Aethera products to help Make Your Game Legendary!

This FRIGHTFUL Friday is also a 5E Friday, and we are pleased to present the first installment in our new Gothic Grimoires series of sinister spellbooks and compedia of creepy class abilities!

Check it out right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG!

5th-gg-necrotic-verses

Next Monday you can expect a bit more horror coming your way on Mythic Monday, but next Friday promises a rather more technological tone with the release of Hypercorps 2099: FAMOTH for Pathfinder and the 8th-level adventure Scorpions of Perdition for 5th Edition!  More details to come next week! In the meantime, Happy Halloween!

 

PS – I can’t resist a quick preview of Scorpions of Perdition…

What’s Down in Them 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!

Scorpions of Perdition is a 40-page 5th Edition adventure for 8th to 9th-level characters that blends pulp action and tense horror with a dash of sci-fi and western elements throughout for an exciting and unusual adventure on the edge of the barren lands on the fringes of the frontier in your 5E game! Grab this fantastic sci-fi/fantasy adventure today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Speaking of North America, here’s what you can expect to see in this marvelous manual of mythic monsters!

Mythic Monsters: North America brings you an amazing and exciting assortment of monsters from the legends and lore of North America, from ancient aboriginal adversaries and spirits of the land to more modern cryptids and mysterious beasts, ranging from CR 3 to 21. Some natives of North America are benevolent spirits, like the stately and mighty manitou, and the curious wakandagi the purifies the lakes and rivers, each guiding and guarding those who travel their lands. Others simply prefer to be left alone, like the shy and secretivesasquatch or the mysterious and magical tupilaq, or prowl the wilderness proud and alone, daring any to challenge them like the hungry hodag and the majestic thunderbird. Many more, however, are far more sinister, whether cunning and cruel like the murderous wikkawakor simply savage like the snallygaster. Sinister and jealous tricksters like the shapeshifting ijiraq and the child-stealing qallupilluk hunt those that wander the wilds, making them lose their way and fall into their dread clutches, while others inspire such dread and terror that they have no need of trickery, from the titanic akhlut wolf-whale, the ominous Jersey devil, and the flesh-feasting wendigo! As if a dozen existing monsters were not enough, the brand-new giiwedin is tormented spirit of the northern winds, a horrid howling gale of doom that can raise an army of the frozen dead in its wake. In addition to the featured creatures, we bring you a brand new kind of magic item with scrimshaw magic graven into the bones of the beasts of the north!
