It’s nearly finished in layout and hopefully will be ready for release on the next 5E Friday, or at the latest the following week. What can you expect to find within its pages? Check it out!

Ultimate Strongholds brings you an awesome array of fantastic fortifications for your 5th Edition Campaign! This exhaustive encyclopedia integrates all levels of 5E play, from classic party-level adventuring to an easy system for creating buildings of your own, on up to the expansive kingdom-building and management rules in Kingdoms from Legendary Games! Explore tons of new options for buildings, rooms, augmentations, and fortified buildings, as well as unusual building locations. Dive into siege warfare with an array of siege weapons, ammunition, and special structures and building materials. Ultimate Strongholds goes far beyond the basic building blocks, of course, with a wealth of information for buildings integrated with kingdom and settlement attributes and a host of exotic strongholds and structures, from cloud castles to water walls, flesh piles to crystal palaces, hedge forts to ghostly redoubts, with rules for damaging such bizarre and magical constructions and the hazards they bring! Plus, you get over two dozen new spells ideal for defending your stronghold or breaching the holds of your enemies like battering bolt, deathless defenders, and spiritual pike wall, along with spells to enhance the fortress itself like elemental architecture and haunted ruin! Last but not least, you also get the brand-new castellan arcane tradition that guides and guards a fortress like no one else can!

Last but not least, if you like to blend a little star-spanning sci-fi into your 5E cup, don’t miss Legendary Worlds: Polaris 7 (5E)! At the farthest edge of explored space, this frozen world is the source for a rare life-giving mineral seething with raw power, with corrupt corporate overlords, savage intrigues between rival factions, and deadly xenomorphic monsters awakened from their deep tunnels to destroy the invaders from above! You’ll find new feats, magic items, pharmaceuticals, and a brand-new monster too! If your heroes happen to slip through the wrong magical gateway or portal to the great beyond, you’ve got a perfect planet of peril to unleash upon them before they can make their escape back home! Grab this 20-page 5E supplement at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

Ultimate Relationships is coming for 5E!

At long last, we are ready to bring you the latest expansion for your 5E campaign with the amazing Ultimate Relationships by Mark Seifter and Matt Kimmel, bringing you a concise yet robust system for building exciting and enriching relationships between your PCs and the characters around them in the game world. This 32-page guide contains the base rules for building relationships, including benefits and boons as well as dealing with rivalries, romances, and more, plus six sample NPC relationship roles ready to use! What is this book all about? Check it out!

A good RPG campaign, like any good story, needs conflict and antagonists to lend it immediacy and drama. But a campaign with pure conflicts, without allies, family, romances, and other connections to friendly characters, quickly grows stale. Much like Shakespeare’s comedic drunken porter scene in Macbeth released tension intentionally to strengthen the impact of the revelation of Duncan’s murder just after, so too can points of lower intensity spent with friendly NPCs increase the impact of the game’s dramatic high points. And sometimes, the relationships themselves can provide their own high points, their own drama, and powerful transformations that make a character more than just a set of statistics or an unrealistically uncaring avatar. This book contains a system for relationships that provides a meaningful progression and story for each NPC, secrets to uncover as the relationship progresses, and hurdles for the PC and the NPC to overcome together. Unlike other relationship systems that bottleneck on certain skills, often Diplomacy, Ultimate Relationships allows everyone to progress and reveal the NPC’s story at their own rate; it just might take some characters longer than others. Much like the strong traditions of literature and television series about journeys, the physical journey is also a metaphor for the inner journey that each character takes along the way, progressing into someone different than they were at the beginning. With Ultimate Relationships, your PCs can join each NPC along his or her own personal journey. With their lives and fates intertwined, your game will never be the same.

Coming THIS 5E Friday from Legendary Games!

A terrific TWOsday times two!

Today is a terrific Tuesday here in Legendary land! First of all, after many weeks of slacking I’ve finally updated our TWO$DAY product of the week, with Ron Lundeen’s terrific adventure, The Horseshoe Calamity! You can get this wild and woolly Pathfinder adventure into the winter wilderness right now for just $2 right here at the Legendary Games webstore!

Even more exciting, I’ve just finished tabulating our sales and payroll for the past month and, while we like to call out products that join the Millennium Club that have sold at least a thousand copies (Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex (5E) looks like the next one in line to join the club), but this month we have twice as much reason to celebrate because Ultimate Rulership has now DOUBLED that mark, crossing the TWO THOUSAND sales mark! The 5E audience has been enthusiastic in their support too, not just for Ultimate Rulership (5E) and its sequels, but also the core 5E kingdom-building and mass combat rules in Kingdoms (5E), which has sold more than 1000 copies on its own as well!

We thank each and every one of you who has checked out this exciting product line, and we hope to have some BIG news coming for you later this spring! Ultimate Relationships (5E) is in production right now and will shortly be heading to layout, with Ultimate Strongholds (5E) to follow right after it. That’s exciting, but there’s something bigger coming. Something truly… ULTIMATE!

Boomer we are pleased to present Mutants and Mad Scientists, a fabulous 40-page 5th Edition encyclopedia of all kinds of sinister science and bad medicine!

You can introduce these elements anywhere horror features in your campaign, or have it rely on discovery of the eldritch tomes described within that reveal their terrible secrets to any mad enough to read them. You also can introduce the all-new mad scientist character class, complete with its own archetypes, and an entire system of enhanced non-magical medicine from relatively benign surgery to sadistic torments of body horror, grafting, and manipulation of bone, blood, and brain. You can grab this exciting encyclopedia of murderous medicine right now in PDF, print, and bundles at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPGand Amazon!

You can check out the incredible  Ultimate Strongholds by Ben Walklate and Jason Nelson! This marvelous 46-page supplement not only covers a ton of rules expansions for buildings, fortifications, magical augmentations, exotic materials, siege warfare and weapons, and the like, but it also bridges the gap from the individual adventurer level with downtime rules, capital and construction, and kingdom building and mass combat. It also provides tons of options for GMs and players alike to create cloud castles, hedge forts, crystal palaces, necromantic flesh piles and ghostly redoubts, and more, with rules for exploring and breaching these fantastic fortresses. Add in over two dozen spells from spiritual pike wall to elemental architecture and haunted ruin, and even a new castellan prestige class for managing every detail of castle defense!

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!

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!
