Treasury of the Kingdom COMING SOON!

A few weeks ago we launched Treasury of the Crusadea marvelous collection of magic items ideal for the Righteous Crusade Adventure Path or any campaign where demons and their corruption play a major role. This week, we are delighted to bring you the next terrific treasury from Legendary Games:

makeyourgamelegendary.com - Treasury of the Kingdom (cover)

Designed by the delightful Linda Zayas-Palmer, this book brings you a bevy of magical items perfect for the freeholder lords of a newborn kingdom hacked out of the wilderness, whether you’re playing in the Kingdom-Building Adventure Path or your own campaign world. Here can be found tools of war like the shield of the encroaching forest and battle standard of the fallen, but also implements of exploration to blaze trails through forest and field, hill and vale like the survivalist’s arrow and scout’s spyglass. As befits the Kingdom-Building Adventure Path for which it is designed, you will also find items that interact with the kingdom-building rules described in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Campaign and expanded in Ultimate Rulership from Legendary Games, like instant signal towers, crown of affirmation, and the plow of the abundant harvest. Finally, since explorers in the deep wild are not moving into lands uninhabited, but rather places that are haunted by the magical and mysterious fey and monstrous tribes alike, from the burning skull mace and hag’s eye to the staff of the fey queen! In all, you’ll find over 40 magic items, from single-use ephemera to a pair of mighty artifacts; everything you’ll need to stock your wilderness kingdom campaign with an array of awesome items to intrigue your players and enrich their enemies. If it’s fantastical items that delight and excite, your PCs will love what they find in the Treasury of the Kingdom.

 

Items in this book range from 200 gp in price to over 100,000 gp, in addition to a pair of artifacts. The items found in this book are listed by type below.

And while you’re at it, check out our brand-new Mythic Skills book – released just last Friday and already with a 5-star review from Chemlak on the Paizo boards, who says:

These should be Core. Seriously.

***** Chemlak

Now, I only just bought this book, and I’ve only read it through twice, but, as with most things I choose to buy from Legendary Games, I love it.

The Good
Mythic Skills gives scaling skill “exploits” that characters can perform, sometimes automatically (within a skill check), sometimes with the expenditure of Mythic Power. Every skill in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook is given multiple options, and they’re simply fantastic. Some give the ability to use spells suitable for the skill (as supernatural abilities, no less), some provide new ways to use existing skills, some provide new ways to use existing skill options. All are very well written and seem (considering how quickly I’m writing this review) well balanced.

As well as offering these options to mythic characters, there’s a full write-up on how these rules can be inserted into a non-mythic game.

The Bad
Well, I did find one typo…
And these aren’t Core…

Umm…

Yeah…

The Conclusion
If you want skills to be awesome, this book shows you how, and can be easily inserted into a game. I’m going to start using these straight away.

Mythic Skills Preview #2… and an EXCLUSIVE OFFER!

In our last preview, we talked about the concept of skill exploits, but what does that really look like in play? Let’s take a look:

 

CLIMB

This mythic skill allows the following exploits:

            – Accelerated Climbing: You reduce the penalty for climbing more quickly than normal by an amount equal to your mythic tier (minimum 0).

            – Climbing Defensively: By accepting a -20 penalty on your Climb check, you do not lose your Dexterity bonus to AC while climbing and you add a bonus equal to your mythic tier on Climb checks to catch yourself if you take damage while climbing. You reduce this penalty by an amount equal to twice your mythic tier.

            – New Exploit: Fast Climb: If you expend one use of mythic power, you can move at half your speed (instead of one-quarter your speed) when climbing for a number of rounds equal to your mythic tier. By accepting a -5 penalty, you can move at 3/4 your speed, and by accepting a -10 penalty you can move at your full speed.

            – New Exploit: Leaping Climb: If you move at least 10 feet while climbing, you can make an Acrobatics check to jump at any point during your movement and are considered to have a running start for that check. In addition, if you jump onto a wall or similar surface, you can cling to that surface at the height you reach at the highest point of your jump with a successful Climb check against the wall’s DC, adding a bonus equal to your mythic tier to the check. If you have movement remaining your jump, you can continue moving by climbing (with a successful Climb check) after your completing your jump.

            – New Exploit: One-handed Climb: By accepting a -10 penalty on your Climb check, you can keep one hand free while climbing, which you can use to wield a weapon or shield or for any other purpose.

            – Greater Exploit: Let Go: As a standard action, you can momentarily let go of a surface on which you are climbing, taking any standard action you wish, even if it requires one or both hands, and then attempt to re-establish your hold on the climbing surface. This functions like catching yourself when falling, but the DC is only equal to the wall’s DC +10 (or +5 if you are on a slope). If you expend one use of mythic power, you may add twice your mythic tier as a bonus on your Climb check to catch yourself.

            – Greater Exploit: Wall Runner: During any movement, you can make a Climb check against the wall’s DC to move across a wall, slope, or vertical surface at up to one-half your speed, or at your full speed if you have both hands free. If you do not reach a horizontal surface by the end of your turn, you must make a Climb check as if to catch yourself when falling. If you expend one use of mythic power, you can spider climb for a number of rounds equal to your mythic power.

And who gets to use mythic skills? Mythic Skills provides you with a sliding-scale framework of prerequisites, including skill ranks, Skill Focus, skill-enhancing feats like Persuasive and Stealthy, and mythic versions of those feats. The more skill feats you have, the fewer ranks you need to qualify for mythic skill exploits, and that’s even more true if you have the mythic version of Skill Focus or a skill-enhancing feat. However, if you have enough skill ranks you don’t need skill feats at all, or (if you use the optional rule) even to be a mythic character.

These exploits represent those people who have trained and honed themselves to such an extreme that they can achieve amazing feats, and even duplicate magical effects. The idea behind Mythic Skills is to make skills an area that you can build up and scale up throughout the course of your career the same way a magic-using character, and to a lesser extent a martial combat-focused character, have always been able to do. Dilettantes and jacks-of-all-trades rejoice! Mythic Skills is for you!

And it’s available right now on the Legendary Games webstore!
