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! 



Coming SOON: Ultimate Factions!

We’ve been hard at work in the word mines and layout factories here at Legendary Games getting things ready for you. We’ve been putting a lot of resources into tying up the next couple of adventures in the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, with the Pathfinder version of Richard Pett’s Confederates of the Shattered Zone going out to Kickstarter backers last weekend (and on track for wide release next month) and much more to come, including its 5E cousin and both versions of Matt Goodall’s Dead Vault Descent. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have some other great new stuff coming your way, and the first preview for you is here!

This terrific new book by Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate brings the danger and intrigue of politics home to the kingdom your heroes have worked so hard to establish. They must successfully navigate the politics and rivalries of other power brokers, political groups, pious religious institutions, merchant councils, and more. Check out the product preview and get ready for this book to arrive THIS FRIDAY!

The sultan’s grand vizier is secretly plotting against him with other members of the court. The guilds are trying to bully small businesses. The neighboring country have spies in the palace. The city guard in the capital are under the pay of the thieves’ guild. The local druid circle aren’t happy about all the farms being built, or the woodcutting in the forest, and want the kingdom’s Councilor to help them persuade the king to put a stop to it.

All of these are themes from fantasy stories, but the core kingdom building rules introduced in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Campaign and expanded in Ultimate Rulership from Legendary Games focus primarily on your heroes and the decisions they make as the ruling council of their own kingdom. With Ultimate Factions, we provide you with detailed rules for different political factions, religious sects, and any number of influential power brokers and wealthy elites devoted to rising up and seizing whatever they can hold. Your heroes may play off their rivals against one another and use their wits to consolidate their own power and secure their throne from threats that can’t be defeated by sword or spell. In the great game of houses and thrones, your heroes must triumph!


The Tombs are FINAL – but look what else is coming soon!

We are delighted to debut our latest Egyptian-themed Pathfinder accessory with Ancient Tombs! This 36-page spectacular features tons of tables for generating your a variety of detailed relics and riches, whether the grave goods of a lowly commoner or the resplendent resting place of a mighty king, plus templates, traps, treasures, constructs, guardians, feats, spells, and more! You can grab this fantastic book right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand Amazon


While this brings our Egyptian Plug-Ins line to a close, we are closing in on some major new expansions to our Ultimate Plug-Ins line. First and foremost, Ultimate War (5E) is just about done in layout and should be ready to release this weekend for all 5E fans. Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate is nearly finished with the manuscript for the dynamic new Ultimate Factions, featuring a robust expansion of the kingdom-building rules detailing what the different power groups within the heroes’ kingdom do in and around the kingdom, focusing on alliances and rivalries, diplomacy and subterfuge. Ultimate Armies is on the horizon, but for now warfare must wait while subtler forms of intrigue take center stage, first for Pathfinder and soon after for 5E as well!


Coming next week we are reaching both into the future and the past. The latest installment in our Metal Gods Plug-Ins is ready for you and we are excited to bring you The Robot Summoner by Jeff Lee, featuring an alternate class to the unchained summoner for Pathfinder focused on technology, super-science, and nanite and robot minions rather than an outsider eidolon from far distant planes!


We also are nearing completion on the manuscript for Mythic Monsters: Greek, with the final few monsters getting pulled together. It’s a bit of a battle to see whether this one or Mythic Monsters: Elementals will be next to go public for you, but we just wanted to share Tanyaporn Sangsnit’s dynamic cover!


Finally, big things are afoot for our Legendary Planet backers, as they are eyeballs deep in the exclusive beta review for Confederates of the Shattered Zone, and we are rocking and rolling towards hopefully having that adventure *and* Dead Vault Descent available by the end of the month!


COMING SOON from Legendary Games!

Thanksgiving week is a great time to look back at a marvelous year, but we’re not quite to the end of it and there’s still a bit of time to finish off some long-simmering projects too! Three projects that have been on my personal to-do list for far too long are actually all on my desk now getting worked on!

Royal Tournaments – This supplement for royal events, from classics like archery and jousting to more exotic and magical contests like the Tower of Jewels and the Pillars of Life and Death, as well as non-contest events you can use to build your reputation and renown. Got some work done on this in October and it’s still coming along, incorporating more of the subsystems from Ultimate Campaign for better integration.

Fort Scurvy – This high-level pirate adventure involves invading the fearsome fortress of a terrible pirate king with a hand of gold and a heart of coal! The maps should be going out soon for this adventure as I continue revising the text to incorporate more rules involving the troop template and continue massaging the stat blocks, and this book has gotten several new pieces of artwork, including the aforementioned Pirate King! GoldenPirateWIP6-1

Ultimate Armies – Did I mention the troop template? That will be one of many things featured in this simmering sequel to Ultimate Battle and Ultimate War, along with mercenaries and more. This is being worked on in tandem with Fort Scurvy as many pieces of the rules cross over. It will also include a large section of premade unit stat blocks, including those for iconic battles in the long-running Adventure Path series from Paizo, Inc.!

I’ll be having a long plane trip during the Thanksgiving holiday and should get a fair amount done on these books, and my hope is to get all three out by the end of the year if I can. Of course, those long-awaited titles are not the only things awaiting!

Tomorrow I’ll be announcing more of our upcoming products that should be ready next month. Suffice to say, this year will be going out with a ROARRRRRRRR!!!!!!
