Speaking of sci-fi products for all three systems – Pathfinder, Starfinder, and 5th Edition – we have a long history of producing products for all three systems, and none bigger than our incredible Legendary Planet Adventure Path! This incredible saga takes characters from 1st to 20th level and beyond in an epic sword-and-planet romp that blends pulp action with alien magic with sci-fi wonder. Ace reviewer Thilo “Endzeitgeist” Graf has recently begun publishing his exhaustive and detailed reviews of these massive adventures – each installment 100+ pages! – and thus far he’s loving what he sees (including high praise for the prequel adventure, The Assimilation Strain, available for Pathfinder and 5E). You can read his reviews in detail at endzeitgeist.com, but he sums up his latest review as follows:

The Legendary Planet AP so far has delivered not only 3 outstanding modules, but 3 modules that are great in very different ways. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval; no here’s to hoping that Dead Vault Descent can maintain this level of quality, see you in the review of that one!

In honor of this review series, we are now offering these two adventures at a massive discount, nearly 50% off on PDFs! Over 100 pages of adventure for just $9.99!
