Forest Aftermath and New Stuff A-Comin’!

This week saw the supremely successful conclusion of our Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium Kickstarter project. We’ve gotten the Monsters chapter to layout and will have the adventures and pregenerated characters there this weekend. We’re managing a fast and furious flurry of artwork approvals and getting final pledges sorted out. If you missed the Kickstarter but would like to do a late pledge, let us know by email at makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.com and we can still set you up!

Of course, with that project now in the books, we can return our attention to a raft of amazing new things coming soon that we’ll be previewing over the coming week. This Monday sees the return of MYTHIC MONDAY with the 48th installment in our long-running series, Mythic Monsters: Fey by Mike Welham, Jason Nelson, and Loren Sieg!

Mythic Monsters: Fey brings you an awesome array of mysterious and magical creatures from the realms of Faerie. These capricious creatures range from CR 1 to CR 20 and include monsters malevolent and benign. Some fey are helpful spirits, from the industrious brownie to the far-striding fastachee cultivating their corn, or the musical grigs fiddling in the night. Others have far more sinister intentions, from anguished fiend-blooded forlarren to sadistic tooth fairies. Like them, gremlins come in many shapes and sizes, all of them notorious from pugnacious nuglub thugs to vengeful jinkin saboteurs. Many fey simply wish to be left alone, like sprites and sprite swarms guarding the wild and beautiful places of the world from intrusion, or the serene and beautiful hamadryad queens who rule the forests. Mortals may seek to bargain with the fey, but woe betide any who double-cross a blood-hungry sangoi or a darkling vilderavn raven knight! As if a dozen existing monsters were not enough, the brand-new horzitoth is a nonesuch, an urban fey that devours dreams and feasts on fatigue, and savoring the loss of sleep for those who welcome it into their homes as an uninvited guest. In addition to the featured creatures, we bring you the fabulous fey-bound knight prestige class, perfect for those heroes of might and magic who have sought service with the lords and ladies of the fey realms!

We also have an exciting new BUNDLE coming next month, new news on Legendary Planet, and much, MUCH more!

And all for just $2 this week! 

Of course the “Middle East” is just a euphemism for the southwestern part of Asia here on earth, and we’ve got plenty more Asian awesomeness coming from parts farther east. This Friday you can look forward to the debut of not one but TWO new outstanding Asian-themed products: the Asian Spell Compendium and Legendary Hybrids: Yakuzawhich we’ll be previewing this week to whet your appetite. Starting in alphabetical order…

The Asian Spell Compendium brings you 110 amazing new magical spells inspired by the mysteries of the Orient, from the frozen tundra and boreal forests of the far north to the serpent jungles of the south.

Whether you favor arcane, divine, or psychic spells, tapping the power of elements or magic of the mind, you’ll find an incredible array of new and inventive spells perfect for introduction into an all-Asian campaign or one that simply draws a bit here and there from the magic and mystery of the unapproachable east.

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!

While this brings our Egyptian Plug-Ins line to a close, we are closing in on some major new expansions to our Ultimate Plug-Ins line. First and foremost, Ultimate War (5E) is just about done in layout and should be ready to release this weekend for all 5E fans. Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate is nearly finished with the manuscript for the dynamic new Ultimate Factions, featuring a robust expansion of the kingdom-building rules detailing what the different power groups within the heroes’ kingdom do in and around the kingdom, focusing on alliances and rivalries, diplomacy and subterfuge. Ultimate Armies is on the horizon, but for now warfare must wait while subtler forms of intrigue take center stage, first for Pathfinder and soon after for 5E as well!

Coming next week we are reaching both into the future and the past. The latest installment in our Metal Gods Plug-Ins is ready for you and we are excited to bring you The Robot Summoner by Jeff Lee, featuring an alternate class to the unchained summoner for Pathfinder focused on technology, super-science, and nanite and robot minions rather than an outsider eidolon from far distant planes!

We also are nearing completion on the manuscript for Mythic Monsters: Greek, with the final few monsters getting pulled together. It’s a bit of a battle to see whether this one or Mythic Monsters: Elementals will be next to go public for you, but we just wanted to share Tanyaporn Sangsnit’s dynamic cover!

Finally, big things are afoot for our Legendary Planet backers, as they are eyeballs deep in the exclusive beta review for Confederates of the Shattered Zone, and we are rocking and rolling towards hopefully having that adventure *and* Dead Vault Descent available by the end of the month!
