Legendary Review Roundup!

We don’t always take the time to link you to reviews for our products, but I thought I’d take the chance to point out some of the high praise our products have received and to send out a special thanks to everyone that takes the time to give us a shout! In this post, we’re highlighting a quartet of reviews from Endzeitgeist, looking at our three (so far) “Legendary Heroes” products for paladins, rogues, and swashbucklers, plus his brand-new review for Treasury of the Machine! 

metaltreasurecover

Tim Hitchcock, Robert Brookes, Jeff Lee, Jonathan H. Keith – these gentlemen seem to have had a field day here, with development from Jason Nelson: Treasury of the Machine is the most inspired book among the treasuries so far. This book has everything you’d want from an item-centric book: Heck, even basic spell-duplicators herein feel unique and sport some sort of twist that renders them distinct in mechanics and feeling. There literally is no filler herein, making this an all awesome smörgåsbord of pure awesomeness: When an item-book sports items that, in the vast majority of cases, manages to inspire the reader regarding modules; when such a book provides means of telling new and exciting stories – then you know, you’ve got something great on your hands. This is such a case. My final verdict for this inspired book will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval.

makeyourgamelegendary.com - Legendary swashbucklers cover

Legendary Swashbuckler succeeds triumphantly in one simple regard: Making one of the choice-wise blandest, uninvolving classes in PFRPG actually provide variety, meaningful choices. The legendary swashbuckler herein is absolutely and without a single second of doubt superior in every way to the default swashbuckler by virtue of the significantly extended options available. The legendary swashbuckler is a nice class that makes skirmishing a valid option via the wealth of choices herein. The fact that a cover identity herein is not something that cripples you every time you’re surprised is also a component that should be lauded.

Let me state, thus, loud and clear, that this still is THE swashbuckler-resource, the redesign of the class is desperately needed and a must-have for fans of the concept and frame of the swashbuckler – hence, my final verdict will clock in at 4.5 stars, rounded up to 5 for the purpose of this platform, with a must-have buy-now-recommendation for everyone dissatisfied by the vanilla swashbuckler – this is the class you deserved and wanted.

Legendary Rogues Cover

Matt Goodall and Jason Nelson’s Legendary Rogue, at first glance, looked like it was too good to be true; and since most books like this are just that, I went on to test the living hell out of this book. Okay, let me make this abundantly clear: No matter the power-level of your campaign, no matter how much you may like the Unchained Rogue, the Glory Rogue or the like – YOU NEED THIS. I didn’t realize how much I needed this book until I actually read it. Beyond taking care and fixing several trap options and retaining their feasibility over the levels, beyond a power-upgrade that was sorely required, the legendary rogue as presented herein is still as rogue-y as it can be – and so much more!

This book, in short, provides the player-driven, versatile rogue I’ve always been wanting since the inception of 3.0, the class I always longed for, but never got. Legendary Rogue is, without any hyperbole, a truly astonishing, downright brilliant piece of work and will be the standard by which I henceforth measure class-fix-style pdfs. It is simply ridiculously good and a shining example of what a crunch can do; it thus receives 5 stars + seal of approval, nomination for my Top Ten of 2015 and the EZG Essential tag – if it also covered trap-rules and a fix for the Stealth-skill, it would completely replace my previously favorite rogue fix, Rogue Glory, completely; as it stands, Legendary Rogues is a true must-own book for anyone who likes playing rogues and felt that the class fell flat of what it should be able to do, for everyone who wants more customization, options, flair – this is for you and worth every cent of its asking price a hundredfold.

legendary paladin cover

Legendary Paladins is a good book. *budoom-dish* Yeah, I know, that one was bad. Sorry, I’ll put on those muting manacles later. ? Kidding aside, I was positively surprised by quite a few of the pieces of content in Jason Nelson adn Amber Scott’s book – particularly most of the magic items and, surprisingly, the alternate class options and the PrC definitely are highlights for this book and justify its asking price. Now personally, I wasn’t that blown away by most archetypes herein, but, again, the minor problems some have are offset by the e.g. the great Celestial Centurion archetype. Rules-language is generally VERY precise, as we’ve come to expect from legendary Games, and manages to convey complex concepts in a concise manner, though there are slightly more minor hiccups here than in most of LG’s offerings. All in all, this book remains a good buy, with some brilliant pieces that shine, like the paladins that take them, brighter than some of its other components. As such, my final verdict will clock in at 4 stars.

The riches of the Orient!

One of the goals for Legendary Games during the rest of 2015 is to get some long-simmering projects finished up and out the door, including revisiting some of our older product lines and tying up some products that have been long in the planning. The first of those is very nearly here, and in fact should be available by the end of tomorrow: Treasury of the Orient!

Drawing primarily from the lore and legendarium of China and Japan but with a sprinkling of items inspired by other Asian cultures, the Treasury of the Orient contains over 30 items from weapons and rods to wondrous items of every description.

Arms and Armor: beheading blade, bestial haramaki, biting glade of ten thousand blossoms, bloodthirsty blade, choking spirit bow, lucky mallet,ronin blade, stalking serpent blade, typhoon fan

Rods: rod of the monkey king, rod of shadow puppetry

Wondrous Items: circlet of the imperial dragon, clothes of the ever-ready explorer, ghost food, ki capstan, kimono of honored ancestors, koto of the seven spheres, monkey’s head charm, noh mask of the shapechanger, papercraft sheet, prayer scroll amulet, robe of the fire rat, sovereign lungguan, spiritworld flute, sugegasa of rising waters, teapot of inner flame, teapot of the mountain, teapot of serenity
