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

Friday is FACTION DAY – and so much more!

Today we are pleased to release the latest in our Ultimate line of products that focus on the world beyond the dungeon – Ultimate Factions by Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate! You can grab Ultimate Factions right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG,  and Amazonstarting at just $5.99!

This 26-page supplement is packed with information on working with rivals, factions, politics, and power brokers in your campaign, whether you’re playing at an individual character party level or using the kingdom-building and management rules from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Campaign and Ultimate Rulership from Legendary Games! Your heroes may love bashing down dungeon doors and looting tombs, but the siren song of the city beckons, and where wealth and power collide that is where they’d better be ready to deal with thieves’ guilds, merchant councils, grasping robber barons, power-hungry priests, skulking spy networks, and more!

But wait, THERE’S MORE! Next Monday will see the triumphant return of MYTHIC MONDAY, with a brand-new batch of mythological monsters for your campaign!

This incredible collection of creatures from the so-called Cradle of Civilization is coming your way, courtesy of Loren Sieg, Victoria Jaczko, and Jason Nelson! Mythic Monsters: Middle East brings you an awesome array of creatures malevolent and benign from the cradle of civilization, with creatures drawn from the mythology and lore of Persia, Mesopotamia, Israel, and Arabia. These incredible creatures range from CR 1 to CR 23, from seemingly the harmless horned almiraj to the hulking warlord humbaba and the soaring two-headed rukh. You will find savage and destructive divs seeking to ruin all that mortals create, from the staring evil eye of the aghash to the sinister whispers of the doru and the unbridled lust of the pairaka. Some Middle Eastern monsters would simply rather be left to their own devices but their wrath kindles hot and their vengeance is fierce, whether they appear to mortals as beautiful godlike nephilim or hideous scorpion-centaur girtablilu. There are spirits of the dead lurking in the shadows, embodying the power of absolute shadow like the owb or possessing mortals and driving them to madness and murder like the dybbuk. You will find guardians of good like the albino peri with their wings of fire, and at the opposite extreme the draconic embodiment of death and decay in the pestilential taniniver. As if a dozen mythic monsters were not enough, we also bring you the rainbow-plumed buraq, a skyfaring steed sent by the powers of heaven to bear the truly worth across the endless night sky. In addition, we present an array of rules for the desolate and deadly desert sands that are ever encroaching on the fertile crescent, bringing nature’s fury and supernatural menace to the dust lands beyond life and hope.

But because we love you, you can get this new mythic monsters book RIGHT NOW exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore!

Next Friday will be bringing you a double-shot of amazing Asian awesomeness, with the fantastic new 20-level class Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza by Jason Nelson and N. Jolly joining the incredible compilation of 110 Asian-themed arcane, divine, and psychic spells for all levels and 20 different casting classes in the Asian Spell Compendium by Jason Nelson! We’ll have more extensive previews coming soon, but suffice to say that if you like an Asian influence even a little bit in your campaign, you are not going to want to miss these two supplements.

Of course, we’ve got other character options coming soon too, with Intrigue Archetypes coming for the Red Queen Adventure Path Plug-Ins and Magitech Archetypes for the Metal Gods Plug-Ins line, both off to layout this week, with yet more amazing material on the way soon! Have a great weekend everybody, and always remember to Make Your Game Legendary!
