Legendary Product Preview for February!

February may be the shortest month of the year, but it’s jam-packed with products you’re not going to want to miss! For starters, available right now exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore (and starting Friday in wide release) we are proud to present Mythic Monsters: Mesoamerica by Mike Welham and Jason Nelson, delving into the deliciously deadly myths and legends of Central and South America and the Caribbean, from chupacabras to tzitzimitls, including the brand-new fallen demigod Xipe Totec and both mythic and non-mythic versions of a brand-new prestige class, the plumed servant! 

Mythic Monsters - Mesoamerica Cover

There will be more mythic monsters coming as well, as our Mythic Module Monsters: Rune Lords series continues, with new issues coming out almost every Monday in celebration of MYTHIC MONDAY! You can pick up individual issues for 1.99 each or grab a subscription to all six issue of each AP for 10% off right here at the Legendary Games webstore!

Speaking of mythic, we are have already released mythic versions of all spells in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Advanced Class Guide in Mythic Magic: Advanced Spells III, but we are also closing in on the release of Mythic Magic: Occult Spells by Amanda Hamon Kunz, presenting mythic versions of all of the spells from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Occult Adventures, if not in February then hopefully next month. Of course, mythic isn’t all about monsters and magic, so we are also pleased to announce that February will see the release of a brand-new mythic path, the Path of the Reluctant Hero by Tork Shaw and Jason Nelson! Some heroes just don’t want to be the stars of the show, to just get home, to tend their home and hearth in peace, yet adventure and destiny keep finding them again and again, and every time they stand tall. This brand-new path should be available by next Friday, or the following week at the latest!

Of course, mythic is just one of the many things we’ve got going at Legendary Games! We are also delighted to present our second Legendary Beginnings adventure aimed at younger audiences and newer gamers, The Bandit’s Cave by Paris Crenshaw!

Bandit Cave Cover

This great new adventure can stand on its own, of course, but it also comprises the first issue in the new five-part Trail of the Apprentice adventure path. Yes, that’s right, an entire AP designed especially for novice gamers! Here’s the promo text by the author:

Trail of the Apprentice
A hidden danger threatens the kingdom of Threll and brave adventurers must answer the call! A bold attack and a mysterious theft set a group of heroes on a mission to find the mastermind behind them. They must follow clues, face great dangers, and uncover ancient secrets to stop a madman before he can unleash a terrible evil upon the world.
Trail of the Apprentice is a 5-part mini-campaign, designed for beginners and younger players of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Each adventure takes your heroes through one character level, from 1st though 5th. Trail of the Apprentice is part of the Legendary Beginnings line, designed to create exciting adventures suitable for all ages. These modules use simplified stat blocks and other rules adjustments to keep gameplay fun for new players, and contains helpful sidebars that provide advice on how to run RPGs for younger gamers so your whole family can Make Your Game Legendary!
Now some of your more mature gamers might like something about grittier, and we have got you covered there as well. The long-simmering Metal Gods adventure Scorpions of Perdition by Alex Riggs and Nicolas Logue is slated for release later this month, featuring body snatchers, alien horrors, and a ruined city with secrets too impossible to tell!
ScorpioncoverSmall
Continuing in a creepy vibe, we also look forward to the release of the fifth in our series of occult character supplements, Occult Character Codex: Mediums by Julian Neale, bringing you fully developed stat blocks for occult mediums of all types from 1st to 20th level!
Cover and Pietra Sibble_Tawny Fritz
Depending on how production goes with several of our other projects, we may have some more exciting announcements on other long-awaited products and updates on the progress of the Legendary Planet project, but we’ll wait until we’ve got things closer to final completion before making any formal announcements.
We are looking forward to a fabulous February and we hope you are looking forward to some of these new products to help Make Your Game Legendary!

Fall Previews #3: Beasts of the East!

Some of the products we’ll be previewing are ones we’ve announced before, either here on our website or out our convention preview events at PaizoCon or GenCon, but we’ll also be previewing products never announced before anywhere! Today is one of those days, as we bring you the announcement of a brand-new monster product for your Far Eastern campaign, Beasts of Legend: Beasts of the East! 

Too often, fantasy campaigns rely on the most familiar tropes for our campaigns, but there’s a wide world out there beyond Western European-styled fantasy. However, even when we venture beyond that continent, the creatures are familiar: Japanese tengu, Arabian genies, Egyptian sphinxes, and the like. With our Beasts of Legend series, we’ve sought to bridge that gap, as the Boreal Bestiary and Coldwood Codex (both on sale for just $2 as this week’s TWO$DAY Special) delved into creatures inspired by Eastern European myth and legend (as well as some more familiar faces from fantasy and Celtic folk tales), and the latest in the series will be doing the same for Asian-inspired monsters, drawing upon not only the legendarium of China and Japan but venturing into Southeast Asia. The artwork for this book has just begun, but we’ll be sharing sketches and concept art soon. Meanwhile, take a look at the list of creatures you’ll be finding between these pages, brought to you by the clever and cunning Thurston Hillman!

1.      Flame Naga: The skin of this great serpent is colored with muted browns and reds. Where its head should be, is instead a face akin to that of a beautiful woman, twitching with intense fury.

2·        Quyrua: This bulky turtle is the length of a horse and almost as tall, with an intricate shell of vibrant color. The eyes of the creature show a measure of sentience and eternal patience. The turtle’s most distinguishing feature is the great sword embedded in the center of its otherwise pristine shell.

3·        Kmoch Pray: A large tree covered in festering sores and weeping sap. At least two branches end in vicious jagged scythes of wood, though it should look natural and not like manufactured weapons. The tree itself is haunted by a spirit, but there’s no visual representation of the spirit.

4·        Kami, Neak Ta: This small creature resembles an amalgam of bamboo and clay bricks in the form of a humanoid. Where a face should be is instead a wooden sign post with a crude (but extremely adorable) smiling face.

5·        Srin-Po: Resembles a ghoul with a more gray skin-tone, normal human ears, but extremely distended arms that are almost double the length of normal arms and end in claws. Lacks the long tongue, but instead a set of razor-like teeth, and is garbed in priestly vestments that are tattered and exposing parts of his body.

6·        Kting Voar: A massive brown bull with golden spiked horns bristling like thistles. 

7·        Oni, Yeren: At a height of almost twelve feet, this humanoid figure is built like an ogre. Patches of reddish fur mar its form, with sections of browned skin showing through. A face locked in the form of a permanent sneer stares out, with eyes moving as though trapped in a wax mask.

8·        Oni, Bakeneko: The size of a halfling, this child-like humanoid resembles an upright cat more than a person. A pair of sharpened claws emerges from the creature’s inappropriately large paw-hands, while pointed ears crown its head. A comical rictus-grin spreads across the feline’s face as it looks out.

Cold Mountain looming, and the Coldwood Codex… UNMASKED!!!

People have been asking for a while what new products we might expect in support of what we are calling the Kingbreaker Adventure Path (surely not intended to rhyme with any existing AP name, of course). We have extensively previewed Cold Mountain, a fantastic fey-themed adventure for 4th-level characters that represents something of a departure for Legendary Games. Our products up until now have been of a fairly consistent size and price point – $4.99 for our standard products, $2.49 for our smaller Gothic Grimoires. Cold Mountain is by far the biggest adventure we have done to date, twice the word count of Under Frozen Stars and The Baleful Coven and almost triple the length of The Murmuring Fountain and The Fiddler’s Lament. With sumptuous artwork by Frank Hessefort and lavish maps by ENnie-award-winner Todd Gamble, Cold Mountain promises to be an unforgettable addition to your Kingbreaker campaign, or to any campaign where your heroes might venture forth into wild lands of the savage frontier. Available for purchase this weekend exclusively at Legendary Games for $9.99!

But what else are we making for Kingbreaker? We’ve given a few teases in the past, but time to peek behind the curtain and get ready to roll out. Following hot on the heels of Cold Mountain comes the Coldwood Codex, the second bestiary product from Legendary Games. The Construct Codex has gotten consistently great reviews and people asked us then when we were going to make another product like it. Wait no longer! This product introduces 10 delightfully deadly creatures perfect to inhabit any cool, misty, and mysterious woodland campaign. Drawn from folklore and the fevered imaginations of award-winning authors Tim Hitchcock and Jason Nelson, ranging in CR from 2 to 18, this codex has monsters for every taste, with fey, monstrous humanoids, and undead from bokereyder to boreal wight and chernobog to totemoq. More previews to come!totemoq final
