Since the Kingmaker Adventure Path 10th Anniversary book project launched and it was announced Legendary Games was partnering with Paizo to translate that entire AP to Pathfinder 2nd Edition, with bonus books added for 5E and Pathfinder, people have asked the question: What about the kingdom-building and mass combat rules? They will definitely be in the final AP book for Kingmaker for PF2, but what about for 5E and PF1? Funny you should ask…
WELCOME TO ULTIMATE KINGDOMS – LAUNCHING JUNE 5th!
Heroes in RPGs find fame and fortune in their adventures, but why just be rich as a king when you can actually BE A KING? Carving out a domain of your own has been a part of games like D&D since the beginning, and Ultimate Kingdoms is an ideal supplement to expand your campaign beyond epic journeys and dungeon delving. Your character should really be somebody in the campaign world, making their mark and building a legacy that will last, and that’s where Ultimate Kingdoms comes in!
This hardback book contains the rules you need to build a nation from the ground up; preparing your military for victory on land, sea, and air; creating strongholds; managing relationships; dealing with political intrigue, and so much more, around 400 pages worth, available for both 5E and Pathfinder 1st Edition. You’ll find rules drawn from our best-selling Ultimate line to bring you an awesome array of options for extracurricular activities, including:
- Kingdoms (5E)– core rules for creating cities, nations, and armies*
- Ultimate Rulership– expanded cities, improvements, edicts, events, governments
- Ultimate Battle– expanded tactics, command boons, terrain, environment,
- Ultimate War– expanded commanders, sieges, air and sea battles, combined arms
- Ultimate Factions – power and politics, secret missions, alliances, influence, treason
- Ultimate Relationships – build robust relationships with key NPCs
- Ultimate Strongholds– classic castles and fantastic fortresses
- Ultimate Ships– ship-to-ship combat, fast-play fleet combat, ship modifications
- Ultimate Commander – a brand-new character class leading their squad on adventures!
- and as part of the stretch goals, the never-before-published Ultimate Armies, featuring mercenary bands, logistics, a bestiary of troops, and more!
As the campaign continues, the book will get bigger and better with stretch goals aplenty and special guests you’ll be excited to see, each of them making this book more amazing! Plus, you’ll be able to write yourself into the book with special sponsorship opportunities! Best of all, the book is already written! We’ve learned from past projects to get all our ducks in a row well in advance! We are ordering new artwork and have even more we can add as funding continues, but this book will be ready for layout by the end of July and ready to get back to you by the end of 2019!
If you’re coming to PaizoCon this weekend and want to learn more about this incredible new project, come see us at our What’s New with Legendary Games? panel Sunday at 11 AM in Cascade 8! And remember…
MAKE YOUR KINGDOM LEGENDARY!
