Space Kingdom, Forest Kingdom, and Awesome Archetypes

This past weekend saw the launch of our latest Kickstarter project, the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium for Pathfinder and 5th Edition, and what a launch it was! Thanks to the TREE-mendous support of our fans, we funded the project in four hours and have already blasted through the first two stretch goals, adding new monsters, feats, archetypes, and more to the book. Some of our authors have been in touch behind the scenes with some great ideas for even more awesome stretch goals, so pile on now so we can make those a reality! There are tons of fun add-ons you can use to expand your rewards, and if you really want to make your mark on the Forest Kingdom, there are only 7 slots left for you to join our Royal Court of the Forest and get a personalized hardcover packed with exciting extras! The project runs through April 24th, and even small pledges entitle you to help vote for the bonus beasts we’re adding to the book, help us reach special bonuses based on total number of backers. Join over 100 backers already in and get #IntoTheForest

In addition, last Friday marked the wide release of the amazing Aethera Campaign Setting for Pathfinder RPG, and the response has been amazing. This epic interplanetary adventure setting has been not just the #1 Pathfinder product but the #1 product period at DrivethruRPG, and that’s a testament to the incredible quality packed into these pages by Robert Brookes and the #AetheraRPG team! For fans awaiting the print version, we have gotten the first print proof of the final hardback book from our printer and it is looking great. A few final tweaks and it’ll be ready to print and on track to arrive in time for GenCon. You can get the PDF right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPGand you can preorder the print version and print/PDF bundles exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore (expected delivery August 2017).

Those are big projects, but never let it be said that the world stands still while we’re in the midst of such magnificent mayhem! Coming soon, hopefully this Friday, is the latest expansion for the magic of the mind, Occult Archetypes II by Julian Neale and Clinton J. Boomer! Here’s a quick preview of what you can expect:

Unlock the Mysteries of the Mind!

Occult Archetypes II opens up new vistas of psychic secrets and mental magic for your Pathfinder campaign! The new psychic rules and occult oddities found in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Occult Adventures open up a vast new playground for heroes and villains of every kind, and within these pages you’ll find incredible new options for psychic spellcasters and non-psychic classes that dabble in the magic of the mind! You’ll find 16 awesome archetypes, from psychic warriors like the iron mind barbarian, indomitable kineticist, and martial seer paladin to scholars like the astropsychic, tranquil occultist, kinetic wizard, and aura master! You’ll also find almost 20 innovative and exciting new feats for unlocking your character’s psychic potential, like Incredible Hidden Power and Serene Ascendance, or focusing the power they already have like Accelerating Kinetics and Mask of Raw Divinity! Whatever flavor of psychic strangeness is your favorite, grab this psychic supplement today and will Make Your Game Legendary!

As if that weren’t enough, we are also at work on Corrupted Archetypes, the latest supplement for our Righteous Crusade AP Plug-Ins line, and we have a trio of long-awaited adventures coming close to fruition, including On the Siberian Line by Pedro Coelho for the Winter AP and a pair of new beginner adventures: Crisis at Falling Spring Station by Legendary newcomer Brian Suskind and A Feast of Flavor by Rachel Ventura! Of course, the bonus projects we’re creating for the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium also will be available as standalone PDFs after the project is complete!

You can grab Under Frozen Stars (5E) today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

Pathfinder gets into the act as well with a new product dedicated to dealing out doom to those that disturb the eternal rest of the ancient dead. Our Egyptian Patreon patrons (you can sign up anytime!) will get the first look at Ancient Curses as soon as it gets through layout, but it should be available to all by next Friday, featuring new curse-based archetypes, expanded rules for crafting cursed items, haunt-like cursed locations from CR 1 to CR 17, and a collection of brand-new curses fit for a pharaoh!

The name has been changed from "Legendary Curses" to "Ancient Curses" - new cover incoming soon!

The name has been changed from “Legendary Curses” to “Ancient Curses” – new cover incoming soon!

And last but not least, we’d be remiss if we didn’t celebrate yet another 5-star-seal-of-approval review from Endzeitgeist, this time for Mythic Monsters: Mesoamerica! 

[A]s a whole, this is a truly evocative, unique array of adversaries. More important, at least to me as a professed aficionado of Aztec mythology and Mesoamerican folklore, the creatures herein just are infinitely closer to what they ought to be doing. Increasingly, I can observe this series spoiling me horribly regarding monsters – I expect by now that a creature has a couple of unique, flavorful tricks up its sleeve – so much so that the last two bestiaries, from a mechanic point of view, often disappointed me. This pdf’s achievement, then, would lie in actually making these evocative, classic and oh so awesome beings finally live up to their myths. Mythic indeed.

You can read the full review on Endy’s page here, and you also can help bring Endy to Indy by purchasing this amazing bundle, featuring a ton of his best-reviewed products from Legendary Games and others at a fantastic discount!

83 Cover

Last but certainly not least, we also want to give a shout to our very first occult product, Occult Character Codex: Psychicsrecently awarded a 5-star review by Endzeitgeist!

For the psychic, spell and feat-selection as well as discipline-choice and phrenic amplifications constitute major decisions that provide diversity and indeed, the pdf does a GREAT job here. Granted, there are some cases of straight-progressions to be found, you’ll still find a rather nice diversity of foci regarding the respective characters. While the flavor-text is pretty minimalistic, the tactics-section for the characters is rather extensive, which makes using them on the fly rather simple.

As you know, I tend to not pick apart every creature statblock, but I do pick apart a couple of them in a given file – and more often than not, I notice a small hiccup here and there…sometimes a big one. I care primarily about whether a statblock can be used by the GM sans violating x tenets or botching some crucial things. When I started picking apart these…I found nothing. No glitch. I picked apart the next one…same game. This may sound like it’s an easy thing…it’s not.

Julian Neale’s psychics herein may be on the short side regarding their fluff when compared to Purple Duck Games’ more evocative codices, but the wildly diverse builds herein are exceedingly refined and polished – and for that I really enjoyed this pdf. While I wished it had covered the missing two archetypes as well, this is at best a minor hiccup considering the diversity otherwise exhibited. My final verdict will hence clock in at 5 stars.

You can pick up this celebrated collection at the Legendary Games webstore for just 2 dollars this week, as it will be announced tomorrow as our TWO$DAY product of the week (but you can get it a day early)!
