Coming soon: Beasts of Legend: Boreal Bestiary!

With all the flurry of activity around the release of Ultimate Battle, you’d almost think we didn’t have a metric ton of other awesome products coming out. But wait, we DO! First one up, if you’ve been paying close attention to the fine print in Faerie Passions like faithful fan Eric Hinkle, you’ve already noticed is going to be the Boreal Bestiary by yours truly and Tim Hitchcock! The sequel and companion to Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex, this one brings you 10 more creatures of the cold and desolate wilderness.

We’ll start with a quick preview of the sinister vodenjak, a creepy riverman who could help you, but only if the price is right. His appearance and one of his abilities are excerpted below:


This gaunt ferryman is dressed in ragged, mud-stained shrouds of blackish green. His gnarled hands grip a stout pole of equal utility for walking or poling a skiff. His eyes are quick and appraising, his hair wild and white, and his smile decidedly unpleasant. A jangling roughspun satchel hangs at his side.


Riverman’s Bargain (Su) Once per month, a vodenjak can grant a limited wish to a creature with 7 or fewer Hit Dice. However, this wish always comes as part of a bargain, and the creature receiving the limited wish must agree to accept a lesser geas from the vodenjak, which the vodenjak can invoke from any distance up to a year and a day after granting the limited wish. This specialized lesser geas does not allow spell resistance or a saving throw, and if the lesser geas is removed before the task specified by the vodenjak is completed, the benefits of the limited wish are immediately ended (or undone, if the effect of the limited wish has already ended). If the wish cannot reasonably be reversed or negated, the wish recipient instead is affected as bestow curse (no saving throw) when the lesser geas is broken. If the target is killed before the lesser geas is completed, its soul is taken by the vodenjak as if it had successfully used its soul drinker ability. A vodenjak cannot have more than one riverman’s bargain in effect at a time.

Don't pay the ferryman until he gets you to the other side.

Ultimate Battle print preorders available now… to the WORLD!

By popular demand, we are offering print preorders for ordering the print edition of Ultimate Battle directly from Legendary Games. A few quick notes:


1.  This product is offered in two versions, one for customers in the US and Canada and one for International customers, which have different listed prices, because we discovered with the Ultimate Rulership Print Edition sales that our WordPress e-commerce plug-in was having trouble calculating shipping costs. To resolve the issue, we have included the shipping cost in with the product price.


3.  If you have also purchase the PDF of Ultimate Battle from Legendary Games, you will receive a coupon code for a special discount on either print edition.

The books have been ordered and CreateSpace estimates delivery by August 19, though I will point out that last time the books arrived a week earlier than the projected arrival date, so there’s a good chance they will be available sooner.
