Pirates for Everyone – and so much more!

The last few weeks have been abuzz with activity, getting books out the door and shipping literally HUNDREDS of copies of the Pirate Campaign Compendium for Pathfinder and the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition out to our backers, along with tons of bonus books they pledged for. In fact, we’ve been so busy that we’ve sent out ALL of our backer and preorder copies of the Pirate Campaign Compendium (Pathfinder) and that means… YO HO, YO HO A PIRATE’S LIFE FOR EVERYBODY! Even if you missed the amazing nautical Kickstarter this spring, you can now get your very own 500-page print copy or print/PDF bundle at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

Fulfillment on the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium is rolling merrily along as well, and once we’ve got all of our backer books out the door those books will likewise be available to everyone in the general public, hopefully before the end of June. We’ll definitely have copies of both books in time for GenCon!

Speaking of Kickstarters, the Fates of Madness Card Game Kickstarter is over halfway to its funding goal in just the first week! We are excited to see how far this game will go as we begin building a new audience for this new product line from Legendary Games and our partner on this project, Mythica Games. The team is traveling to numerous cons throughout the summer in support of the game, which they’ve been demo-ing and playtesting for months now, and we’re excited to have the project nearing completion where we’ll be ready to make it happen. Check out the Kickstarter right here, and the first update for a gameplay video!

Last but not least, we wanted to throw out a quick preview for Legendary Barbarians, the latest new class book for Pathfinder from Jeff Gomez, Jason Nelson, and N. Jolly! What will you find between these pages?

Legendary Barbarians is the latest volume in our series of class-focused player supplements, this time focusing on the fearsome barbarians! This core class has long been a staple of fantasy settings, representing both the power of anger and the rejection of civilization. Legendary Barbarians enhances these ideas with a streamlined redesign of the class that provides flexibility, flavor, and ferocity in a class that can tear your enemies apart! With Legendary Barbarians, the barbarian is able to choose the benefits of her rage, opening the class up to a limitless variety of concepts. Enlarging rage increases the barbarian’s size (Hulk Smash), while invincible rage lets her shrug off attacks with ease. Bestial rage transforms the barbarian to an animal and vicious rage sacrifices her hit points for greater damage. Dozens of alternate class features allow a piece-by-piece construction of your perfect barbarian, while 11 new archetypes (such as the mutagenic rager, slavering nightmare, and righteous berserker) tie your abilities together in a theme. The savage archetype trades out rage for a more stoic approach. The fury cannot stop raging. All this, plus new feats (like Wield Halfling), items, brands, and more!

The book is getting its final development pass this weekend and then it’s off to the layout queue to get ready for YOU! Get ready… THERE WILL BE BLOOD!
