Celebrate Sci-Fi Friday with STAR INTRIGUE!

We are excited and delighted to debut our latest spectacular sci-fi supplement for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game with the launch today of Star Intrigue! This 44-page supplement broadens your universe of adventure into the shady double-dealing of influence peddlers and popular media, allowing your characters to build their personal brands, earn favors, build factions, and manipulate people and organizations to expand their power base and become true players on the interstellar landscape! This book features rules centered at the character level, including new intrigue feats and more, but also allows you to connect your campaign to the colony and nation-building rules in Star Empires, really grounding your heroes in the twists and turns of a space-faring society! Go beyond just exploring and blasting and make your heroes true legends! Grab Star Intrigue today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon!

The next star-studded sequel in this series is on its way to layout this weekend with Star Battles, a 50+ page extravaganza of expansions for planetary military actions, starships and space battles, and so much more! We’ll have a preview coming later this week that will blow you away! And of course we’ve got fantasy content headed your way soon as well, as Mythic Treasures is juuuust about done with layout and hopefully will be available for you next week!

January was incredibly busy, but we are approaching the finish line in fulfillment on the Alien Bestiary (Starfinder), Pirate Campaign Compendium (5E), and Fates of Madness card game Kickstarters, with somewhere around 600 packages sent out directly from here and dozens more international orders sent out through Amazon. If you get your package, by all means share a picture online and tag us on your favorite social media platform!

Meanwhile, may your February be Fantastic! (and Legendary too!)

Fulfillment Friday, Sci-Fi Sunday, and Finding a Path to the Stars!

This has been a completely bananas week here in Legendary-land, with over 300 packages going out to Kickstarter backers for the Pirate Campaign Compendium (5E) and Fates of Madness card game, with the Alien Bestiary (Starfinder) queued up next as we hack our way through the pile of boxes! And we’re not done yet!

But wait, we aren’t just a shipping company! We also have amazing new books coming out all the time, and this week is no exception. We just got so busy with shipping (plus actually running our regular games!) that we’ve totally been slacking on announcing the latest amazing addition to the Arcforge product line, the spectacular Star*Path! This stunning volume blends Starfinder and Pathfinder in spectacular ways, providing massively expanded conversion rules in both directions, from Pathfinder to Starfinder and from Starfinder to Pathfinder, plus nearly 30 new feats and class features and 7 awesome archetypes like the Starknight and Zenith Marine! Of course, you’ll also find tons of guidance for expanding the rest of the Arcforge line like Technology Expanded and Psibertech for use with Starfinder! Regardless of which system you use, you need to check out the array of options in Arcforge: Star*Path, and you can pick it up today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand soon at Amazon! 

There’s even more great fantasy and sci-fi books coming soon, including Mythic Treasures and Star Intrigueboth finishing up in layout as we speak, and the amazing 216-page Aethera Field Guide (Pathfinder) finally finished in copyfitting and ready for its final layout, heading out to backers first and then to everyone! More previews to come soon, but we hope you are having a Legendary 2019!

You load 16 tons, and what do you get?

Okay, it might not have been literally 16 tons, but it *was* EIGHT PALLETS OF BOOKS AND GAMES that arrived today at LG Central! Probably around 3 tons, if we’re being honest. A thousand-ish each of the Alien Bestiary (Starfinder), Pirate Campaign Compendium (5E), and Fates of Madness card game all arrived today – why all on one day? Hey, when it rains it pours, but thankfully it actually stopped raining just as the pallets arrived. With the able assistance of a couple of helpers, we broke down the pallets, putting some units into storage, queueing up a bunch of them for packing and shipping directly, and got a couple of pallets ready for trans-shipment to our distribution partners. The local post office is going to be doing their semi-annual stinkeye at me for clogging up the line with an onslaught of packages, but that’s the cost of doing business!

It’s not only about shipping, of course, as I’m posting up Arcforge: Star*Path for release on Friday and stealing moments to keep writing as I can to push through to the finish line on To Kill a Star, but we’re definitely shifting gears into full-on shipping mode to get an awesome array of books and games out to YOU! Thanks for your support of our many products and projects, and we hope you’re looking forward to a fantastic 2019 along with us!

Kicking Off a Magical Year – Magus style!

Happy New Year to all from Legendary Games! Behold, the first Legendary release of 2019! 

We are excited and delighted to debut our latest class expansion for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, courtesy of the dynamic Dave Nelson and the highfalutin’ Hal Kennette as they delve into the world of sword and spell with the magnificent magus class! You’ll find not just a ground-up rebuild of the magus class, complete with an entire system of eldritch tomes for learning their melding of magical and martial, but also a ton of awesome archetypes, new magic items, spells, feats, and so much more! Grab this fantastic 40-page book today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand soon at Amazon! 

 

What will you find inside these pages? Check it out!

Legendary Magus is the latest volume in our new series of player-focused supplements, this time focusing on the master of spell and sword: the magus. This class debuted in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Magic, blending melee sword-swinging with an arcane sorcery, combining might and magic in one irresistible package. The Legendary Magus takes this composite class to the limit, redesigning the class from the ground up and combining classic arcana with new class features built around the eight eldritch tomes that guide each magus’ study in the arts of combat and casting, allowing them to adapt their abilities to an array of fighting styles. You’ll find eleven amazing archetypes within, from the fire breathing Dragon Fang to the teleporting Warp Tempest. The valiant Drakeguard wields lance and spell from the back of a draconic mount, while the Legendary Kensai abandons armor to become a true master of the sword. Better still, you’ll find over 50 incredible arcana, feats, spells, and magic items, from Polymorphic Caster to Technique Specialization and from arrow squall to the vambrace of pain! Plus, you’ll find a fully developed sample character, Iris Pageknife, ready to drop into your campaign and show off what the legendary magus can do! Grab this incredible 40-page character class supplement by Dave Nelson and Hal Kennette and Make Your Game Legendary!

Of course, we’ve got plenty more in store for you, including huge new releases coming soon like the Mythic Character Codex and Mythic Monster Manual 2, plus high-tech amazement with Arcforge: Psibertech expanding the linkage of mind and machine for Pathfinder, and the spectacular Star Intrigue and Star Battles for Starfinder, as well as the long-awaited Alien Codex and Aethera Field Guide for 5E and Starfinder and, at long last, the climactic final chapter of the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, To Kill a Star. Layout on the compilation versions of Legendary Planet has already begun while Steve Helt and Jason Nelson finish the final adventure. It’s taken much longer than we expected, but we are closing in on the finish at last!

Plus, the Fates of Madness card game, Pirate Campaign Compendium (5E), and Alien Bestiary (Starfinder) are all scheduled to arrive by the end of the month, so we’ll be able to get those books and games processed and headed out to all of our Kickstarter backers first and then loaded and ready for all of YOU!

Thanks for all your support in the past and let’s make 2019 truly a Legendary year!

MYTHIC MONDAY is Mythic Mania 2-sday – Let the Mania BEGIN!

The MYTHIC MANIA II Kickstarter has begun! 

MYTHIC MONDAY was just not big enough to contain all the awesomeness that you’ll find in the Mythic Character Codex and Mythic Monster Manual 2, so it took until Tuesday for Kickstarter to comprehend and allow us to unleash SO MUCH MANIA!!!

 

 

When the mythic rules for Pathfinder debuted five years ago, Legendary Games unleashed an incredible project – MYTHIC MANIA – teaming up with Kobold Press, Rogue Genius Games, and Dreamscarred Press to bring you three comprehensive expansion volumes, the Mythic Hero’s Handbook, Mythic Monster Manual, and Mythic Spell Compendium. Altogether, we gave you over 900 pages of incredible material to blow the lid off your Pathfinder campaign with literally thousands of mythic feats, spells, monsters, magic items, psionic powers, class features, path abilities, skills, traps, curses, and more to make your campaign dynamic and cinematic in ways it never was before. It was amazing and we thank everyone who made it possible.

MYTHIC MANIA II encompasses two books rather than three and incorporates mythic material for hardbacks like the Advanced Class Guide, Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium, Horror Adventures, Occult Adventures, Ultimate Intrigue, and Ultimate Wilderness, as well as potentially adding in more material from the Adventurer’s Guide, Monster Codex, Planar Adventures, Villain Codex, Book of the Damned, Pirate Campaign Compendium, and more! What will you find in MYTHIC MANIA II?

Mythic Character Codex – Three new mythic paths – the bound, mystic, and reluctant hero – along with over a thousand new mythic path abilities, hybrid class features, feats, spells, magic items, and more!

Mythic Monster Manual II – Over 200 mythic monsters… and maybe a whole lot more! Plus appendices and bonus content!

We’ve had our team working behind the scenes on this project for months now, and we’re pleased to inform you that THE WRITING AND ART ARE DONE. That includes both the primary core of the product and the planned stretch goals. Material for bonus goals is already written – it’s just a matter of seeing how big these books can become and how much stuff we can include! There will be no lag time waiting to catch upon things to get finished with the authors. It’s already in the can. The more pledges we get, the bigger the books will get and the more material will be included, but art and text is already finished for all of the material we plan to include.

This Kickstarter project runs through Mythic Monday, December 17, so please do help spread the word to all and sundry about this amazing opportunity to bring two incredible accessories to your Pathfinder campaign, making it more dynamic, cinematic, and exciting in some truly amazing ways. These books compile and include a metric ton of 5-star awesome individual products created by the people who know mythic rules better than anyone, and cover the gamut of GM and player material, including tons of great stuff that you can easily incorporate into a traditional Pathfinder campaign even if you don’t use the mythic rules for everything. It’s an amazing toolset for you to use as you will to Make Your Game Legendary!

MMM… it’s time for MORE MYTHIC MANIA!!!

That’s right, later this month

MYTHIC MANIA II is coming to Kickstarter!

Back in 2014, we launched what became our biggest Kickstarter to date, MYTHIC MANIA, a four-company partnership with Kobold Press, Rogue Genius Games, and Dreamscarred Press, producing three massive expansions to the mythic rules for Pathfinder in the Mythic Hero’s Handbook, Mythic Monster Manual, and Mythic Spell Compendium, totaling over 900 pages of expansions, revisions, and enhancements for the mythic rules. We’ve continued to produce terrific expansions to the mythic rules since then, with new mythic feats, spells, paths, monsters, and so much more, and we’ve got another new expansion in layout now with Path of the Mystic, bringing over 90 path abilities and more for psychic characters and occultists of every description!

Mythic Mania II encompasses two books rather than three, and incorporates mythic material for hardbacks like the Advanced Class Guide, Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium, Horror Adventures, Occult Adventures, Planar Adventures, Ultimate Intrigue, and Ultimate Wilderness, as well as potentially adding in more material from the Adventurer’s Guide, Monster Codex, Villain Codex, Book of the Damned, Pirate Campaign Compendium, and more! The two volumes are tentatively titled:

Mythic Character Codex – Mythic class features for hybrid and occult classes, as well as the vigilante and shifter, plus mythic feats, spells, magic items, hazards, and beyond!

Mythic Monster Manual II – Over 200 mythic monsters… and maybe a whole lot more! Plus appendices and bonus content!

We’ve had our team working behind the scenes on this project for months now, and we’re pleased to inform you that the writing is DONE. That includes both the primary core of the product and the planned stretch goals. I’m still hard at work with Steve Helt on the final adventure for Legendary Planet, and I’ll be continuing to focus on that and overseeing the 5E and Starfinder teams on the final stages of the Alien Bestiary project, while our new Lead Developer, Thilo Graf, manages the hardcore development side, assembly, and review of the Mythic Mania II books. There will be no lag time waiting to catch upon things to get finished with the authors. It’s already in the can. The more pledges we get, the bigger the books will get and the more material will be included, but art and text is already finished for all of the material we expect to include.

We do plan to give backers the ability to sponsor additional items they want to see get the mythic treatment or to make sure they get included, and layout will begin shortly after the Kickstarter ends in November, as soon as any special pledges get added to the mix with writing and illustration.

We’ll be doing the print side of this project as print-on-demand, so the turnaround between completed PDFs and availability of print books will be much faster than with a traditional print run. HOWEVER, we also have a very limited number of print copies of the original three books, including the recent discovery of a few leftover cases of the Mythic Hero’s Handbook (which we’ve been sold out of for some time), and a handful of DELUXE editions from the original Kickstarter. Of course, those who missed the original MYTHIC MANIA also can pick up the original PDFs at a discount as part of this massive project.

This project will close the book (literally and figuratively) on our mythic support for Pathfinder, though we also may potentially create a version of the mythic rules for the Starfinder roleplaying game and for Pathfinder 2nd Edition. We will see how it all shakes out in the future, but this project is specifically focused on Pathfinder 1st Edition and all its many fans who want to close the circle on all the awesome stuff your heroes can do!

Celebration Day for LG!

We have LOTS of great reasons to celebrate today at LG! First off, we just passed the 6-year anniversary of the relaunch of LG under Jason Nelson’s direction, PLUS this weekend is my birthday, but besides those we’ve got two especially good pieces of news!

First is that our Fates of Madness cooperative RPG card game HAS FUNDED! We’ve finally reached our goal and are looking forward to a fantastic finish tonight and tomorrow! If you haven’t already jumped aboard, come check it out and help us grab a stretch goal or two and make this game even better! Don’t get left out when Madness is on the line!

Secondly, we are excited and delighted to announce that the remarkable Rachel Ventura’s awesome all-ages adventure A Feast of Flavor has been nominated for an ENnie award for 2018 in the category of Best Family Product! We are very proud of our all-ages Legendary Beginnings line, and doubly so for Rachel’s debut adventure. We definitely hope you’ll support us once ENnies voting begins this year and hope you’ll check out this adventure, which we’ll be making our TWO$DAY product of the week – you can grab the PDF of either the Pathfinder or 5E version for just $2!!!

We are also very close to releasing the awesome Alien Bestiary (Starfinder) to our Kickstarter backers. I will be receiving the layout galleys shortly for final review, and once they’ve been checked and any adjustments made we’ll be posting them up for backers and preparing the book for the printer, and it’ll be ready for all our fans soon thereafter!

There’s so much more to come, but for now raise a glass and give a cheer for LG, and check out the Christmas In July sales coming this week at both the Open Gaming Store and at DrivethruRPG!

The return of MYTHIC MONDAY – and more!

It has been a tale long in the telling, but at long last Path of the Bound is here! Check out the latest path to power and immortality using the mythic rules for Pathfinder, reaching out to powers from Beyond and cementing a bargain that ties you to their will but brings you great reward… as long as you play by the rules. Of course, rules were made to be broken, and you can turn your binding around and become a mythic patron to others, or alter the deal and try to turn things to your advantage. It might even work, for a time, but sooner or later the bill always comes due. The only question is how great and terrible can you become before you have to pay the piper. Take an entirely new step on the path to glory and with Path of the Bound and grab a copy today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon! 

There are plenty more amazing Pathfinder products coming your way as well, with Legendary Barbarians already in layout and Legendary Cavaliers in final review before it heads to layout too! The Alien Bestiary for Starfinder is nearing completion in layout too, heading out to our Kickstarter backers first and then heading out in general release for everyone while the 5E version follows in its path! Pirate fans also can look forward to Fort Scurvy (5E) and Cutthroats and Crew (5E), with our massive Pirate Campaign Compendium nearing its glorious return to port!

We also want to give a shout-out to our Fates of Madness cooperative RPG card game, which is entering its final week on Kickstarter. This is a new venture for us, stepping outside our tabletop RPG roots, and we need YOUR help to make it happen. We have 7 days left to go, so we urge you to check out the game, including gameplay videos, interviews with podcasters, and more to whet your appetite and show off the fun this game can bring! Check out the Kickstarter now – it all ends on July 9th!

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!
