But that’s not all! It’s also SCI-FI FRIDAY, and a day early for the usual MAY THE FOURTH (be with you) festivities because I’ve got a busy weekend coming up so hey, why not launch a day early, especially when I’ve got something as cool as this for all of our Starfinder fans! Our last release, Star Relationships, got us in such a loving, generous mood that we just had to create a very special STARFINDER SUPER BUNDLE just for you, with over 500 pages of spectacular sci-fi supplements at over 80% off – just $20!

But that’s not all, because coming soon we have an incredible addition to the Ultimate line for 5E with Ultimate Strongholds, a remarkable resource for all things fortified in your campaign. It’s nearly finished in layout and hopefully will be ready for release on the next 5E Friday, or at the latest the following week. What can you expect to find within its pages? Check it out!

Ultimate Strongholds brings you an awesome array of fantastic fortifications for your 5th Edition Campaign! This exhaustive encyclopedia integrates all levels of 5E play, from classic party-level adventuring to an easy system for creating buildings of your own, on up to the expansive kingdom-building and management rules in Kingdoms from Legendary Games! Explore tons of new options for buildings, rooms, augmentations, and fortified buildings, as well as unusual building locations. Dive into siege warfare with an array of siege weapons, ammunition, and special structures and building materials. Ultimate Strongholds goes far beyond the basic building blocks, of course, with a wealth of information for buildings integrated with kingdom and settlement attributes and a host of exotic strongholds and structures, from cloud castles to water walls, flesh piles to crystal palaces, hedge forts to ghostly redoubts, with rules for damaging such bizarre and magical constructions and the hazards they bring! Plus, you get over two dozen new spells ideal for defending your stronghold or breaching the holds of your enemies like battering bolt, deathless defenders, and spiritual pike wall, along with spells to enhance the fortress itself like elemental architecture and haunted ruin! Last but not least, you also get the brand-new castellan arcane tradition that guides and guards a fortress like no one else can!

Last but not least, if you like to blend a little star-spanning sci-fi into your 5E cup, don’t miss Legendary Worlds: Polaris 7 (5E)! At the farthest edge of explored space, this frozen world is the source for a rare life-giving mineral seething with raw power, with corrupt corporate overlords, savage intrigues between rival factions, and deadly xenomorphic monsters awakened from their deep tunnels to destroy the invaders from above! You’ll find new feats, magic items, pharmaceuticals, and a brand-new monster too! If your heroes happen to slip through the wrong magical gateway or portal to the great beyond, you’ve got a perfect planet of peril to unleash upon them before they can make their escape back home!

A terrific TWOsday times two!

Today is a terrific Tuesday here in Legendary land! First of all, after many weeks of slacking I’ve finally updated our TWO$DAY product of the week, with Ron Lundeen’s terrific adventure, The Horseshoe Calamity! You can get this wild and woolly Pathfinder adventure into the winter wilderness right now for just $2 right here at the Legendary Games webstore!

Even more exciting, I’ve just finished tabulating our sales and payroll for the past month and, while we like to call out products that join the Millennium Club that have sold at least a thousand copies (Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex (5E) looks like the next one in line to join the club), but this month we have twice as much reason to celebrate because Ultimate Rulership has now DOUBLED that mark, crossing the TWO THOUSAND sales mark! The 5E audience has been enthusiastic in their support too, not just for Ultimate Rulership (5E) and its sequels, but also the core 5E kingdom-building and mass combat rules in Kingdoms (5E), which has sold more than 1000 copies on its own as well!

We thank each and every one of you who has checked out this exciting product line, and we hope to have some BIG news coming for you later this spring! Ultimate Relationships (5E) is in production right now and will shortly be heading to layout, with Ultimate Strongholds (5E) to follow right after it. That’s exciting, but there’s something bigger coming. Something truly… ULTIMATE!

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

Check it out today at an amazing 80% off – just $2!

Ultimate Armies is still on the way, though I’ve had to sideline work on it to focus my efforts on getting the final Legendary Planet adventure, To Kill a Star, finished, but I am looking forward to slaying the last of the Unholy Trinity early next year! Fort Scurvy and Royal Tournaments down, one more to go! For any of you fans who have enjoyed our fantasy-focused expansions for kingdom building, mass combat, and the like, we also exhort you to check out the spectacular Star Empires, a massive 100-page redesign of the system from the ground up to make it really sing in a sci-fi setting using the Starfinder Roleplaying Game rules and incorporating many of the lessons learned from our extensive experience, and look forward to even more expansions coming soon like Star Battles, Star Intrigue, and more!
