Meet the new boss, same as the old boss

Ultimate Rulership continues its rampaging reign as the #1 3rd-party download on Paizo.com for a third consecutive week. We are delighted by the fan reaction to this product and hope people are looking forward to the upcoming companion product, Ultimate War. We’ll be previewing some of the content you’ll find in that product soon, and it should be moving towards completion soon.

Meanwhile, we wanted to send a quick shoutout to Valantrix1 and redcelt32 on the Paizo boards for their thoughtful and very complimentary posts. Valantrix says: “Yes, the price point on Legendary Games offerings are higher than some other 3rd party companies, but it’s worth every penny. Every time I have purchased one of their products, I have been completely satisfied in the end with what I bought.” Redcelt says, “the writers I have seen working on LG products do top quality work. They have written some of my favorite adventures, and contributed to some truly excellent Paizo products. I realize that not everyone has free entertainment money to spend on gaming material. However, you don’t go into a Mercedes dealership and quibble over the pricetag. The level of excellence that I see these days from folks like Paizo, Legendary Games, Fire Mountain Games, Alluria Press, and quite a few others, was unheard of even in 3.x days. Paizo set a new standard, and some are rising to meet it. I am loving this new era of amazing adventure writing and truly excellent art and campaign material.” Thanks guys.

Redcelt32 mentions the idea of 3PPs raising the bar, and at Legendary Games we are certainly committed to doing just that. Lest you think we’re content with just making the most amazing products we know how, stay tuned, as next Wednesday we’ll be making an announcement that is going to kick that bar up to a whole nother level.

The Ultimates are coming!

Work continues apace on Ultimate War, the hotly anticipated follow-up to the smash hit Ultimate Rulership, and should be on target for July release. But lest you think your opportunities for new ultimate goodness stop there, just wait! I’ve just turned over the expanded manuscript for the Ulimate Rulership Deluxe Print Edition! This marks a new venture for Legendary Games as our very first print product, and we are very excited to continue expanding our opportunities to provide you with the very best 3PP support material out there. You may have some questions about this, so…

What do you mean “expanded”? In a PDF product designed to be used on an electronic device, you can use external hyperlinks to connect to rules in the online Pathfinder Reference Document or d20pfsrd.com. That doesn’t work in a print product, so we needed to incorporate those open-source rule elements directly into the product, especially in the section describing settlement attributes.

Is there any actual NEW material?  Besides the expansions listed above, in response to popular demand artist Mike Lowe is creating a full set of new building tiles/counters for each of the new buildings we introduced in Ultimate Rulership to use with the district grid and counters provided in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Campaign.

What if I’ve already bought the PDF? How will I get that new material?  Once the new files are ready for upload, you’ll be able to re-download them from d20pfsrd.com, Paizo.com, or DrivethruRPG. If you bought directly from us on our site, the files will be emailed to you directly.

When will it be available?  Early July, hopefully in time to bring print copies to PaizoCon July 5-7.

How much will it cost?  To be determined once the final laid-out page count and print cost are finalized.  We also intend to set up a discounted bundle package price for selling the PDF and print version together.

Where can I get the print version?  We are planning to use CreateSpace to create these print-on-demand products, which means the easiest way to buy our print version will be directly through the CreateSpace.com store and through Amazon.com.  We may also purchase a stock of print copies to sell through our website and/or through our partner vendors.

What’s New with Legendary Games at PaizoCon!

If you are attending this year’s PaizoCon, consider this your invitation to sit in on a conversation with the minds behind Legendary Games, Sunday morning, July 7th, 9:00-10:00, Evergreen Ballroom F!

We’ll be discussing our existing product lines and our planned and potential product lines and specific products for the future. Our panelists will include Neil Spicer, Tim Hitchcock, Matt Goodall, Jim Groves, yours truly, and Russ Taylor, a veritable cavalcade of superstars (winners and finalists) and stalwart contributors to the Pathfinder RPG we all know and love.

This is a chance for you to be among the very first to hear about some of the fantastic new products we’ll have rolling out before the end of summer. This is also your chance to pick our brains and weigh in with your thoughts on some of our product concepts and ideas, including which Adventure Paths most need the Legendary treatment… or whether we should leave all that behind and try something really out of this world!

Of course, since we’ve never been above offering shameless bribes, we can also guarantee that every attendee will leave our panel with some Legendary swag, and one lucky fan will be taking home something double-extra-secret and VERY cool.

See you Sunday morning!

P.S. You can now follow us on twitter @LegendaryGamesJ for the latest announcements and news about LG!

Ultimate Rulership is #1

Already our bestselling first-month product ever (knocking long-reigning champ The Way of Ki from its perch), Ultimate Rulership has ascended to the top of another list as well. It is currently the #1 download among all 3PP products on Paizo.com!

I should point out that it is not alone in the rankings either, as Conquering Heroes from Neil Spicer is holding down the #6 slot.

Thanks to all of the fans of Legendary Games for your support and your great word of mouth. Please take the time to write a review on whatever site you purchased it (or on Paizo.com, if you bought directly from us). I’m hopeful to have reviews and message boards set up here on our site by the end of the month, but in the meanwhile our thanks to you and our continued hope that every product we produce helps Make Your Game Legendary!

Road to Destiny now available!

They say that all roads must end, but they must also begin somewhere, and that place is here and the time is right now. A long-simmering cauldron of awesome is about to bubble over, and here it is: Road to Destiny! Courtesy of superstar author Jim Groves, superstar cartographer Pedro Coelho, and fan-favorite artist Jason Juta, Road to Destiny is a perfect low-level adventure as part of or apart from the Far East Adventure Path. Jim has skilfully woven challenges of thought and skill into his adventure, right alongside the need for sword and spell. Jim has included notes for playing with a modified version of the caravan rules for the AP or for playing without them, as well as numerous helpful sidebars explaining questions of rules and plot that are likely to arise.

This product has been long in the making. Time to rise and shine and let the sun light your path!
