ASIA APPROACHES!!!

Tomorrow brings you a delightful double-shot of fantastic Far East Friday goodness with the Asian Spell Compendium and Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza! Having already given you a look at what’s coming with those spells, today it’s the Yakuza’s turn!

Here’s a quick run-down:

Tattoos, Triads, and Treachery

Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza is the latest volume in our series of class-focused player supplements, introducing a new series of hybrid classes like those in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Advanced Class Guide that blend the core elements of two different base classes into a unique synergy all their own. The yakuza is a 20-level hybrid class that combines sneakiness and skullduggery with the power of teamwork and organization, bringing together the tactically minded and charismatic cavalier with the shadow-stepping ninja to produce a deadly combination of secret societies and smuggling, wielding the power of their gangs to rule the black markets with equal parts backstabbing and bravado. In addition to the yakuza class and 5 gangs like the Blood Tong and Jade Triad, you’ll also find 8 incredible archetypes from the gun runner and tattooed one to junk pirate and flying tiger, plus favored class bonuses, yakuza feats, and a ready-to-use sample yakuza gang boss, Shinsuke Tatsu of the Dragon Lords!  Grab this 30-page Pathfinder class supplement and Make Your Game Legendary! 

Both this book and the Asian Spell Compendium will be available starting tomorrow everywhere fine Pathfinder products are sold, but these are not the last Asian-themed products we have on the way! Our Mythic Monsters team, having already brought you monsters from China and India, is now hard at work on Mythic Monsters: Japan, and of course we also have the incredible Asian Archetypes: Magical coming your way soon, with bloodlines for sorcerers and bloodragers alike as well as some fantastically fun new archetypal options, like the Kaiju Caller, an archetype for the unchained summoner. Since we’re in a previewing mood, here are just a few of its class features!

Chant of Doom (Su): At 8th level, a kaiju caller can expend one daily use of his summon monster spell-like ability while bellowing a terrifying primal chant imploring the attention of the great kaiju. This causes the sky to seem to grow dark, the wind to rise, trees to sway, and the distant tread of enormous footsteps to be heard and felt, interspersed with faraway echoing screeches and roars that slowly draw closer. Living enemies within 30 feet of the kaiju caller automatically become shaken (no save) as long as he continues to chant, up to a maximum number of rounds equal to his Charisma modifier or his number of ranks in Perform (singing), whichever is less (minimum 1 round). This cannot cause a creature to become frightened or panicked, even if they are already shaken. Beginning this chant is a move action but maintaining it is a free action in subsequent rounds. The kaiju caller can take other actions while chanting but cannot cast spells with a verbal component or speak command words while maintaining the chant. If the kaiju caller is deaf, he has a 20% chance for this ability to fail without effect, still expending one use of his summon monster ability. This is a sonic mind-affecting fear effect, and deaf creatures are immune to it.

If a kaiju caller has a drum or similar percussion instrument, he may play this instrument rather than chanting in order to create this effect (using Perform (percussion) in place of Perform (singing) to determine the maximum duration he can maintain the effect). If he does so, he can speak and utter command words while maintaining the chant but must use both hands to continue playing the instrument and so cannot cast spells with somatic components or perform other actions requiring his hands.

While this expends a use of his summon monster ability, using it does not interfere with the kaiju caller’s ability to summon other monsters or his eidolon.

This replaces transposition.

Invoke Disaster (Sp): At 20th level, a kaiju caller can expend two uses of his summon monster spell-like ability in order to create a localized natural disaster, duplicating the effect of any of the following spells: control weather, earthquake, storm of vengeance, tsunamiAPG, whirlwind. Alternatively, he can expend all of his daily uses of summon monster in order to call a kaiju to him. This may be a specific kaiju or spawn of the destroyer known to exist in the campaign world, or may take the form of a tempest, thalassic, or thunder behemothB3. The kaiju or spawn arrives within 1d100 minutes and is not under the kaiju caller’s control. After using this ability, the kaiju caller takes a number of points of Constitution damage equal to the level of the spell he duplicates (or 10 points of Constitution damage for summoning a kaiju) and becomes exhausted. A successful Fortitude save (DC 20 + the spell’s level) reduces Constitution damage by half and leaves the kaiju caller fatigued rather than exhausted. This replaces twin eidolon.

A Middle Eastern Mythic Monday!

Today we are pleased to present the latest creature collection from Legendary Games, Mythic Monsters: Middle East! With a dozen and one delightful denizens of the myths and legends of the cradle of civilization, this book brings you creatures from Persia, Mesopotamia, Israel, and Arabia, as well as some delightfully deadly rules for desert adventuring! You can pick up this terrific new book at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand Amazon

That’s not the only news relevant to ancient civilizations, either, as we are also proud to present (a day early) our latest TWO$DAY product of the week, now the proud recipient of Endzeitgeist’s 5-star seal of approvalPast Lives: Secrets of Reincarnation by Michael Kortes! This incredible supplement explores reincarnation in a whole new way, not just some silly table to see whether you come back as a gnome or a badger, but an in-depth exploration of legends of the past coming to life once more through repressed memories, thematic touchstones, feats, magic items, and 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. Drawing from the myths, legends, and lore of China, Japan, India, Southeast Asia, Siberia, and more, you’ll find tons of new spells for every school and 20 spellcasting classes, from ancestral wrath to word of pain and all spells in between. You’ll see offensive spells like flame shuriken, tiger trap, and blessed jade strike and defensive incantations like spirit ward, toad’s kiss, and sublime detachment, from minor magics like awful apparition, drowsy fireflies, and punji pit to mighty enchantments like divine wind, rain of sacred lotus petals, terra cotta legion, and the deadly marvelous chopsticks. 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.

Keep your eyes here for more information on Legendary Hybrids: Yakuzaand also for updates on all of our product lines. For those following the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, we’ve just sent out a Kickstarter update with the latest information on progress, like Confederates of the Shattered Zone (5E) already in layout as we speak, and upcoming adventure manuscripts complete and now in development!

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!

The Asian love is roaring to a finish as well, not only with Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza following our massive monks book into layout, but to go one step further tonight I am sending the Asian Spell Compendium off to layout. This started out as just a portion of Asian Archetypes: Magical but by the time it finally reached 110 NEW SPELLS it really needed to be a product of its own. With spells for every school and 20 spellcasting classes, from ancestral wrath to word of pain, with offensive spells like flame shuriken, tiger trap, and blessed jade strike and defensive incantations like spirit ward, toad’s kiss, and sublime detachment, from minor magics like awful apparition, drowsy fireflies, and punji pit to mighty enchantments like divine wind, rain of sacred lotus petals, terra cotta legion, and the deadly marvelous chopsticks. 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.

For those who enjoy the politics and courtly intrigues back home as a delightful supplement to the hack and slash of the dungeon and trailblazing the wilderness, Ultimate Factions is also nearing completion, and we are painfully close to some exciting new releases in the world of Legendary Planet! Keep your eyes peeled, because there is some great stuff coming your way very soon!

What’s Down in Those Mines; It Ain’t of This World!

A strange craft fallen from the stars, long the home of a tribe of monstrous mutants worshiping the long-forgotten technology in its ruined bowels, has birthed a new and fearsome scourge. Alien prisoners once bound in its holds have escaped from the derelict, bringing terror and death to a poor mining town while a lone android marshal wanders the wasteland seeking these escaped interplanetary convicts. The heroes find themselves stalked in turn by an unearthly abomination in a twisting catacomb of mines and must dare the precarious ruins of the dangling spacecraft embedded in the cliffs if they are to stop the conquering forerunners of an ancient empire buried centuries ago from rising again to pick up where they left off… with world domination!

Speaking of North America, here’s what you can expect to see in this marvelous manual of mythic monsters!

Mythic Monsters: North America brings you an amazing and exciting assortment of monsters from the legends and lore of North America, from ancient aboriginal adversaries and spirits of the land to more modern cryptids and mysterious beasts, ranging from CR 3 to 21. Some natives of North America are benevolent spirits, like the stately and mighty manitou, and the curious wakandagi the purifies the lakes and rivers, each guiding and guarding those who travel their lands. Others simply prefer to be left alone, like the shy and secretivesasquatch or the mysterious and magical tupilaq, or prowl the wilderness proud and alone, daring any to challenge them like the hungry hodag and the majestic thunderbird. Many more, however, are far more sinister, whether cunning and cruel like the murderous wikkawakor simply savage like the snallygaster. Sinister and jealous tricksters like the shapeshifting ijiraq and the child-stealing qallupilluk hunt those that wander the wilds, making them lose their way and fall into their dread clutches, while others inspire such dread and terror that they have no need of trickery, from the titanic akhlut wolf-whale, the ominous Jersey devil, and the flesh-feasting wendigo! As if a dozen existing monsters were not enough, the brand-new giiwedin is tormented spirit of the northern winds, a horrid howling gale of doom that can raise an army of the frozen dead in its wake. In addition to the featured creatures, we bring you a brand new kind of magic item with scrimshaw magic graven into the bones of the beasts of the north!
