Some very GOOD things are coming tomorrow!

One of our most popular products recently has been the truly MASSIVE and malevolent Book of Exalted Darkness (5E)bringing you not only a wealth of wickedness in terms of rules and options but also the gloriously gonzo decopunk world of Aksis. Some of you fans have asked for more about that world, and what about the good guys there… and so ye shall receive. Coming tomorrow for your reading and playing pleasure, a truly blessed book!

The demigod Celestial Heroes have conquered the world and raised civilization to precipitous heights but only YOU can save it from destruction!

On the eve of evil’s twilight as malevolence nearly became undone on the decopunk utopia of Askis the terrible machinations of rogue mad scientists instilled a vein of corruption throughout the populace. Though they are few these malcontents are irreprensibly vile and in tandem with the foul minds that touched their nascent souls with evil, the world once more needs heroes.

You are one such hero!

What’s in the Book of Celestial Heroes?

  • The goody-two shoes twin of the Book of Exalted Darkness
  • Two new classes–the Exemplar (a hero all about glory) and the revised Feywalker (when flight and fancy are more important)–along with holy archetypes for every class
  • Holy spells
  • Holy rituals
  • Holy feats
  • Heck, there’s even a holy hand grenade (which explodes on the count of 3–not 5, but 3)
  • The decopunk utopia world and Spheres of Askis, great works the PCs must bolster to save civilization from destruction
  • Tailored magic items that become more powerful as an adventurer gains prowess
  • Equipment and inaequa-technology that run the gamut from flashlights to jetpacks and locomotives (along with vehicular combat rules)
  • All the poisons plus a few new ones, diseases galore, and extra madness and insanities
  • Six powerful mad scientist villains each with their own lackeys and lairs joining more than 50 NPCs and monsters
  • Searching the River Styx, a scaling adventure for PCs of 3rd-16th level and just the right thing when the group goes down from an evil TPK!

Rise to the challenge of true goodness and mercy in this 286-page blessed book for 5th Edition today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Of course, that’s not all. Our layout team is juuuuuuuuuuuust about done with about a THOUSAND PAGES (not even kidding) of incredible supplements coming your way in the next week or so, but one piece has already broken loose and will be coming your way on Monday in general release… and TOMORROW right here at the Legendary Games webstore! Starfinder fans rejoice as I present:

A new Aethera adventure is just about ready to hit layout, with Wanted in the Wastes, and the Aethera Field Guide is slated to finish development this month and head to layout as well.

But wait, there’s more. See, all that stuff had already been announced. But today is a great day to unveil something new. Strap in and alert the Colonial Senate of the Planetary Federation, STAR EMPIRES is coming from Legendary Games!

Star Empires is a fully developed system of colony and nation-building and warfare for the Starfinder Roleplaying Gamebrought to you by the company that knows this genre like no one else. Inspired by the kingdom-building rules from Ultimate Campaign and Kingdoms (5E) but redesigned from the ground up and enhanced in a myriad of ways for sci-fi settings and the Starfinder system in all its glory. Legendary newcomer Matt Daley has been working with me on this adaptation and has brought forward a ton of cool ideas on how to make this an amazing accessory for your Starfinder campaign and taking your heroes into a broader and more epic scale of adventure and action.

And we’re not stopping there. Matt is already at work on not one, not two, but THREE more volumes in the Star Empires ruleset, including expanded warfare in Star Battles, dealing with variable tech levels in your sci-fi campaign with Star Evolutionand unpacking factions, organizations, influence, contacts, spycraft, diplomacy, and more in Star Intrigue! Wait, did I mention Star Battles…

Space battleship by Arrahman Rendi

The manuscript for Star Empires is in and we are rolling it through development while we wait for the remainder of the artwork to come in, but this seemed like a great time to make the announcement. We hope you’re as excited about this as we are, taking our expertise with opening up campaigns into a larger world of fame, fortune, power, and prestige.

Big News in Sci-Fi Land!

Mark Hamill got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Hey, that’s big news! Of course, we were more talking about sci-fi products in Legendary land, and boy do we have them! Last year’s smash hit, the Aethera Campaign Settinghas just gotten an epic review from the eminent Endzeitgeist, who proclaims it candidate for his Top Ten Products of the Year! You can check out his full review right here, but in sum he says:

The value of this book lies in its surprisingly holistic, concise and sensible world-building, in its phenomenal concepts – whether as a campaign setting or as a grab-bag of ideas, Aethera is a truly remarkable achievement that makes for a surprisingly captivating reading experience, that has a very strong identity in spite of its inclusive stance. In short: It achieves its goal as a campaign setting in a fantastic manner, with panache aplomb. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval, as well as status as a candidate for my Top Ten of 2017.

We also are nearing completion on the first volumes in our Alien Bestiary series, including the Alien Codex and Aethera Field GuideThe first in the series, the Alien Bestiary Companionshould be ready to begin layout next week, with additional volumes to follow until all three books are available for Pathfinder, Starfinder, and 5th Edition! These books will be heading out to backers first, of course, but will be available soon to the general public as well, giving you hundreds of amazing aliens and killer characters for your sci-fi game!

We also have even more sci-fi products coming your way, with Treasury of the Machine for Starfinder coming soon with nearly a hundred new technological and technomagical toys to play with, along with an amazing update of kingdom-building and mass combat rules for sci-fi settings in the tentatively titled Star KingdomsIf you like your sci-fi a little closer to home and a lot grungier, you also can check out the new postapocalyptic adventure compilation Hypercorps 2099 Adventure Combofeaturing three cyberpunk dystopian adventures available at a discounted price and in print for the first time!

Time for a Tour on 5E Friday! With bonus wastelands!

Today we kick off the new year with a new introductory 5E adventure for the postapocalyptic 2099 Wasteland setting, with Bally N’TourThis sandbox adventure gives you everything you need to kick off a campaign in the wake of cataclysm, and it plays perfectly with the free Settlement Rules PDF for the setting. This adventure combines hard-hitting combat with unique rules for searching the vast ruins, salvaging the treasures of the before-time, a wide variety of modular maps, and 10 new sample NPCs and monsters! You can grab this badlands adventure for 5E right now at DrivethruRPG!

Speaking of wastelands and sci-fi…

Coming this month we also have the first adventure in the awesome Aethera Campaign Setting,  coming first for Pathfinder and soon thereafter for Starfinder and 5th Edition! Wanted in the Wastes is a science-fantasy adventure that sends characters on a harrowing journey across the parched Wasteland of Akasaat in search of a missing soldier of the Vanguard and the renegade spellcaster she was hunting. Negotiate with the Scavenger Barons of Teratha, survive encounters with Wasteland raiders, and explore ancient ruins in Wanted in the Wastes, an adventure for 1st-level characters.

Of course, wastelands are hardly limited to sci-fi! We also are sending off to layout the latest character class compendium from Legendary Games, Corrupted Classes! This capacious codex contains dozens of character options for the heroes and villains of the border wastes where the encroaching power of the nether planes has wracked, warped, and wounded the land itself. In the face of such blights on body, mind, and soul, crusaders face off with nihilistic anarchists and fallen heretics, and you’ll find a killer collection of concepts here, from gore fiends and hellions to knights of the chalice and moon howlers, plus an entire range of cursed class alternatives. Feats like Warped Mind, Twisted Flesh, and Apocalyptic Survivor mark those who have lived too long on the fringe of dissolving reality, while Fiendfoes and Dark Force Adepts battle with Fierce Fiendish Brilliance and Force-Focusing Oaths! Plus mental corruptions, magic items, and more; you’ll find an incredible array of new options. Coming in January as well to kick off the new year, we’ll drink to that!
