mass combat


Tuesday night is FORT NIGHT with Ultimate Strongholds and more!

The latest installment in our amazing Ultimate product line for Pathfinder is here with 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

And since we’re in a commanding mood, we’re going to celebrate this week’s TWO$DAY Product of the Week with another ultimate book that spans the gap of hardcore party-level adventuring and broadened influence in the campaign world with the amazing Ultimate Commander by Linda Zayas-Palmer and William McCardell, allowing you to play a character born to lead and with a gang of soldiers (or a horde of zombies, if you’re using the alternate hordelord class) that specialize in any of a dozen different specialties, depending on which archetypes you may choose to select! 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!

To Rule the Stars!

Space is the final frontier, and it’s time for your Starfinder characters to do more than run missions and investigate mysteries. It’s time to think BIG! Get out there into space and explore it, plant a flag, raise a colony, and stake your claim to an interplanetary empire! This week from Legendary Games we are excited to bring you Star Empires, a massive 100-page rules expansion for Starfinder available right now exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore, before it goes on wide release elsewhere on Friday!
 So what exactly is between these pages?

This amazing expansion for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game allows your heroes to stake their claim as princes of the universe and suzerains of the stars! Star Empires brings you extensive rules for founding colonies of your own and expanding them to form an empire, with a flexible and modular system that applies to territorial expansion on a single planet to interstellar empires that span multiple systems. Build colonies from simple modules to sprawling metropolises, fine-tuning the balance of law and corruption, industry and culture, prosperity and popularity! Develop your own governmental ethos, exploring and expanding your domain and issuing edicts to manage your empire’s economy and stability while keeping your citizens loyal and productive. You can play with a simple, abstract system or use any number of optional rules to develop trade, diplomacy, and more, and Star Empires also includes a modular system for mass combat in a sci-fi setting, allowing you to build armies to defend your colonies from invading enemies or raise a mighty crusade to crush the resistance of any system in your path. Your heroes have explored new worlds, uncovered interplanetary conspiracies, and boldly gone where no one has gone before, but in between your adventures and endless weeks cruising the spaceways now they can return home to their shining capital to build their own sci-fi society, from conquering techno-legions to peaceful utopia! Grab this incredible 100-page Starfinder supplement today and Make Your Game Legendary! 

Download also includes PDF Army, Colony, and Empire sheets to print and use with your Star Empire! 

And this is by no means the last entry in our ever-expanding offerings for Starfinder. Besides adventures, planets, magitech treasuries, and more already available, we also are pushing into the layout pipe Arcforge: Technology Expanded, Arcforge: Psiber Ascendancy, Star Intrigue, Star Battles, and SO MUCH MORE! Your space campaign is about to get a lot more Legendary! You can grab Star Empires now at the Legendary Games webstore, or wait until Friday and pick it up at Paizo, DrivethruRPG, Amazon, and the Open Gaming Store!

COMING SOON from Legendary Games!

Thanksgiving week is a great time to look back at a marvelous year, but we’re not quite to the end of it and there’s still a bit of time to finish off some long-simmering projects too! Three projects that have been on my personal to-do list for far too long are actually all on my desk now getting worked on!

Royal Tournaments – This supplement for royal events, from classics like archery and jousting to more exotic and magical contests like the Tower of Jewels and the Pillars of Life and Death, as well as non-contest events you can use to build your reputation and renown. Got some work done on this in October and it’s still coming along, incorporating more of the subsystems from Ultimate Campaign for better integration.

Fort Scurvy – This high-level pirate adventure involves invading the fearsome fortress of a terrible pirate king with a hand of gold and a heart of coal! The maps should be going out soon for this adventure as I continue revising the text to incorporate more rules involving the troop template and continue massaging the stat blocks, and this book has gotten several new pieces of artwork, including the aforementioned Pirate King! GoldenPirateWIP6-1

Ultimate Armies – Did I mention the troop template? That will be one of many things featured in this simmering sequel to Ultimate Battle and Ultimate War, along with mercenaries and more. This is being worked on in tandem with Fort Scurvy as many pieces of the rules cross over. It will also include a large section of premade unit stat blocks, including those for iconic battles in the long-running Adventure Path series from Paizo, Inc.!

I’ll be having a long plane trip during the Thanksgiving holiday and should get a fair amount done on these books, and my hope is to get all three out by the end of the year if I can. Of course, those long-awaited titles are not the only things awaiting!

Tomorrow I’ll be announcing more of our upcoming products that should be ready next month. Suffice to say, this year will be going out with a ROARRRRRRRR!!!!!!
