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!

Kickstarters ahoy and MORE!

So the triumphant return of MYTHIC MONDAY will have to wait until next week, as Path of the Bound is not *quite* done in layout yet, but I am delighted to report that Legendary Barbarians by Jeff Gomez, Jason Nelson, and Ehn Jolly is juuust about done in development and ready to head to layout as well.

In addition, we have much, MUCH more to share on the Kickstarter scene!
– Fates of Madness Adventure Card Game! Our Kickstarter kicked off last week and is climbing along. It’s a new venture for us but one we’re excited about and that we’ve been running convention demos and playtests at conventions for several months and getting a great response, and now in the latest update you can check out a terrific gameplay video showing how the game works right here! This project is running through early July, giving even more people chances to check out demos at their local conventions run by the design team, and we hope you’ll help spread the word and check it out!
Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium: The books are here! We’ve sent out our Amazon and distribution shipments to prep for our international backers, and our shipping boxes have arrived today for our domestic shipments – I’ll be heading down to pick them up once I finish this post! Team LG is ready to kick it into gear and get your books headed your way!
– Pirate Campaign Compendium: Over 100 books have already been sent out to backers – basically everyone who was getting a Pathfinder version of the book without add-ons has got their book headed out. We were waiting on shipping boxes for some backers, and we discovered we had to reupload one of our softcover print books for those getting that bundle along with their 500-page hardcover compendium, but it should cycle through by the end of this week and be ready to go!
– Alien Bestiary: The first sample chapter of the Alien Codex has gone out to backers, and we should have our first layout preview from the Alien Bestiary (Starfinder) ready to sent out in the next few days as well!
– Legendary Planet: I’m still making slow but steady progress on To Kill a Star and should be ready to send the next chapter over to the 5E team for conversion this week, so they can be working on that while I’m continuing on the Pathfinder version.
– Mythic Mania II: Wait, we haven’t even DONE this Kickstarter yet, but we announced it at PaizoCon last month and just wanted to update you that the team on this project is chugging along and making great progress on mythic material from the Advanced Class Guide, Adventurer’s Guide, Ultimate Intrigue, Ultimate Wilderness, Occult Adventures, and more! Our goal is to get as much as possible – ideally everything including the most likely bonus goals – finished before we launch, so we can turn this baby around for you in record time!
– Last but not least, we wanted to send a shout-out to another Kickstarter that we personally have nothing to do with, Black Sands! The folks behind it are telling some engaging stories of African/Egyptian mythology in books, comics, and now are creating a series pilot (with an eventual goal of a feature film). The style is essentially anime but with a distinctly and robustly pan-African flavor. These are adventure stories that don’t always rise up in the mainstream but they’re entertainingly told, beautifully illustrated, and made with the kind of passion and flair that warms our Legendary hearts. You can check out the Black Sands Entertainment Facebook page here if you’re interested in their comics and books, but we encourage you also to check out their Kickstarter – it’s got 5 days left and they are almost 90% of the way to their funding goal, so a good surge in the last few days can help push them over the top!

Kickstarterpalooza – and Starfinder too!

There is SO MUCH to talk about when it comes to Kickstarters and Legendary Games today! First and foremost, the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium books are here!

Two and a half TONS of books later, the pallets have been broken down and transshipment to Amazon, etc. begun. Our shipping boxes arrive on Monday (and we’ve got some boxes here, so we actually can start packing some of our boxes to go this weekend)! Let the shippification begin!

Other Kickstarter fulfillments continue as well, with a full preview chapter of the Alien Codex going out to our Alien Bestiary backers, and shipping beginning on our Pirate Campaign Compendium as well, with the first batch already sent and more going out this weekend!

Of course, that’s just OLD Kickstarter business! We also have just launched a NEW Kickstarter project – the Fates of Madness Adventure Card Game! This project, by the makers of the Legends of Draxia card game, is a new venture for LG, a horror-themed cooperative card game that blends the luck of the Fate cards with your skill in navigating ruins, dungeons, hauntings, and abominations from beyond! This Kickstarter runs through July 9th, with Rachel Ventura and the Mythica team running the project while CEO Jason Nelson keeps laser-focused on the above projects plus the final adventure in the Legendary Planet adventure path!

This is a new venture for us and we hope you’ll check it out and help spread the word. Rachel Ventura is managing the Fates of Madness project while CEO Jason Nelson remains laser-focused on completing our existing projects like this one. Check it out, spread the word, and thanks for all our support!

Dragons and Dragraces!

If you’ve ever wanted to play a dragon-themed race in your Pathfinder campaign, you can find some options out there, but here at Legendary Games we had an idea that we thought would be a lot of fun for one, and courtesy of N. Jolly, Amber Underwood, Siobhan Bjorknas, and Loren Sieg we are excited to have sent off Legendary Races: Wyrmtouched off to layout this week!

Legendary Races: Wyrmtouched is the first volume in our new series of race focused player supplements, and for this project, we’ve chosen a race with a very iconic heritage, dragons! This base race was designed to infuse games with draconic flavor, not only through the race itself but with a multitude of dragon styled traits, archetypes, feats, and new drake options to further suffuse your game world with the might of these awesome creatures. The wyrmtouched is a fully fleshed out race with motives, goals, plot hooks, and everything else you could want from a race that will fit fully into any campaign setting (with special care given to discuss how to insert the wyrmtouched into your setting of choice). Plus with archetypes such as the Breath Savant designed to help wyrmtouched get the best of their breath weapon, Dragon Champion to allow you to channel the might of dragons into your weapons, and Scaled Scion to let you live the fantasy of a spellcasting wyrm warrior, Legendary Races: Wyrmtouched has enough to satisfy players who simply want to include more dragons in their games without involving a new race.

Of course, we’ve got tons of other stuff coming soon from Legendary Games, like the Path of the Bound, Alien Bestiary Companion, Pirate Campaign Compendium, and more, plus updates on the Alien Bestiary Kickstarter and Legendary Planet Kickstarter
