No minis for the eidolon or the cat familiar? Hugo and Tim to the Rescue!

Everyone is loving our new Gothic Heroes product and commenting on how cool it is that we incorporated free standup minis based on Hugo’s amazing art. BUT…several people have noted we didn’t make minis for Ysabot’s cat familiar, Persimmon, or for the eidolon, Theodric.

Well, fear not, loyal fans! Hugo has already volunteered to quickly craft two new minis and we will be posting them soon here on the LG site for free download (or maybe at paizo.com as a free download, too).

Gothic Heroes: Pregenerated Characters uploaded to Paizo.com! Available soon!

I just uploaded the files for Gothic Heroes: Pregenerated Characters to the Paizo.com product uploader. Once reviewed by Paizo staff it will be available for purchase. Here is the product description and the cover thumbnail:

Gothic Heroes: Pregenerated Characters

A set of 8 rules-legal, fully fleshed out, ready to play pregenerated 1st level characters created specifically to shine in a gothic-themed Adventure Path campaign, written by Neil Spicer and the Legendary Games Design Team, art by Hugo Solis.

Adventure Path campaigns are designed to provide heroic challenges. That means players participating in those campaigns have to create a party of PCs able to handle any situation thrown at them by Paizo’s amazing stable of writers. That’s where we at Legendary Games come in. Let those very same writers provide you with the characters you need to succeed, all rules-legal and fully compliant! We guarantee each character will provide an interesting and unique roleplaying experience, because these pregens are more than just a collection of stats—they are fully formed character concepts with identities and personalities created by the best in the industry. Each with amazing art by Hugo Solis!

Built using Pathfinder Society-approved 20-point-buy method, with scaling notes for 15-point builds, these PCs are perfect for the recent Gothic Adventure Path or for your home campaign. Paizo products have long been as much about story as about combat, and these pregens are no different. But because of our old-school gaming pedigree, you can rest assured these PCs can handle themselves in each challenge they’ll face. When it’s time to thrown down, none of these pregens will be stepping to the sidelines. Print these heroes out and double-dip them in the stuff adventures are made of. Each PC also includes a backstory, a trait selection from the specific campaign’s Player’s Guide, some special equipment, links to how the character fits into the campaign, and some roleplaying tips. To top it all off, each character comes with preselected choices as they advance in the first few levels, and also include notes about their ultimate design goals so you know what you are working towards.

Plenty of our products are geared for the hardworking GM, but this one is for every gamer out there. If you are a player, these PCs should provide endless opportunities for adventure. If you are a GM, you can use these pregenerated characters as NPCs or rival adventuring parties. And if you play or run Pathfinder Society adventures, with a few tweaks these PCs will work for you, too.

This download includes two files: a “full color” version, with color backgrounds, and a “color ink” version that has white backgrounds with color ink, giving you multiple ways to print out these characters for your game table. Permission is included to photocopy and use them for your home games.

As an added bonus, each file also contains a sheet of stand up miniatures for you to cut out and use for each character with Hugo Solis’ amazing art!

The PDF files are portrait oriented (unlike some Legendary Games products) since that layout better fits the character sheet model. Additionally, some of the content in the stat blocks of the character sheets has been linked to the Pathfinder Reference Document, the official online compendium of game rules (when not present there, such as the changeling, for example, we used the d20PFSRD), so that you can access important rules from a link right there in your character sheet!

Power to the Players! Now go roll initiative!

Contains:

Agrimar Vaskel, male half-orc paladin of the Goddess of Valor (undead scourge)

Dominnia Vorsaife, female aasimar summoner and her eidolon, Theodric

Eilinica Ziorec, female human cleric of the Goddess of Dreams

Ereviss Cierdel, male elf bard (detective)

Jevalt Ardain, male dhampir inquisitor

Merenso Kull, male half-elf ranger (skirmisher)

Xiuj Hak Leyng of the Seven-Ghost-Needles, male human alchemist

Ysabot Vaskel, female changeling witch and her cat familiar, Persimmon

Clark’s Jade Regent Pathfinder Campaign

The reason I love running a game company is because I love gaming! I’ve recently started a Jade Regent campaign. I keep a thread about it on Paizo.com message boards (see  below). One thing I love to do is personalize the campaign to my specific players. And I usually set up backstory with a newspaper or some other kind of handout. So I thought I’d post it here.

By the way, this is from my home game and is not a commercial product. Unlike our products, which are created under the OGL and the Pathfinder license, this is done under the community use policy.

Reviews in for Treasury of the Macabre! — “It might as well be an official Pathfinder product”

Treasury has only been out for two days and already its getting high praise, not only from the official paizo boards, but from emails to us as well (and no, not just from proxy accounts set up by Jason 🙂 ).

To me, nothing sums the reviews up better than this one from Joseph Wilson in his 5-star product review on the paizo boards:

“It might as well be an official Pathfinder product. It’s that good.”

That is exactly what we were shooting for and we are glad that is how it is being received.

Other comments from the boards include:

“I have to say that so far what I am looking at – the colors and the overall layout, is a piece of art.”

We agree. Tim’s layout is really amazing and we hope you enjoy it!

Please feel free to share your thoughts and opinions on the Paizo boards. As you can see, we take feedback and comments seriously. In fact, fan feedback prior to release helped shape some of our design decisions for the cover and the links on the cover. We are gamers first, and as a result we know that gamers are smart. So we welcome and respect your input because in the end, these products are for you, the Pathfinder fan!

The product also includes a “home page” on the Table of Contents page with internal links. Further, each page contains an “elder sign” button that sends you back to that home page. Plus, references to rules from Ultimate Magic and the Advanced Player’s Guide include hyperlinks to web resources containing those rules for your reference.

Ghosts and Haunted Buildings

Treasury of the Macabre–sample cover

We talk a lot about using a “home page” cover instead of a traditional cover for electronic products. Well, here is an example of a draft (not final) of our cover for Treasury of the Macabre. You can see the front page has links to all the items and links to external sources. Each interior page has a button to take you back to this front page for ease of navigation.

It’s still a draft, but this is getting pretty close to done.
