Welcome to Legendary Worlds!

As the Legendary Planet Adventure Path rolls to its conclusion this summer, we are here to open up new worlds of adventure for you today, with our latest product line: Legendary  Worlds! Each one of these dynamic and delightful destinations provides you with a richly detailed planetary gazetteer, including history and geography, with important people, places, and adventure hooks to draw your heroes into visiting. Plus, each one contains a brand-new monster and new rules content unique to that planet, from feats and spells to magic items, technology, archetypes, special terrain and hazards, and more. The first in this series, the fantastic foundry planet of molten seas and savage slag-beasts that is Legendary Worlds: Volretz by Kate Baker, is available right now from the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG!

But wait, there’s more! We have half a dozen new planets already in production for you, and each and every one will be available not only for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game but also for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game (after August 17) and for 5th Edition! The next installments are already on the way right now, including Legendary Worlds: Melefoni by Joel Flank!

On the ocean planet of Melefoni, the intrepid colonists of the Trailblazer have built a home amid the ruins of their fallen colony ship. The dwellers in the deep oceans below face ruin of their own as the shattered drive core poisons their homes in the pelagic depths, leading to all-out war above and below the sea against the invaders from beyond. New feats, spells, and gear to help you survive this war-torn water-world await, along with a detailed planetary gazetteer, adventure hooks, and a brand-new monster, the sonic warrior asquenti!

From fire to water, of course there must be *some* planets where it’s just solid ground, right??  But what lies beneath the surface on a broken hive-world barely held together by shifting gravitational forces and the eldritch webbing of insectile hosts. You won’t be waiting long to find out, as Legendary Worlds: Carsis is on its way too!

There are even more Legendary Worlds coming soon from the powerful pens of Wendall Roy, Jeff Lee, and Eric Hindley, from dream-worlds to frozen ice planets to the secret lairs of planet-hopping pirates and beyond. All coming your way soon. For adventure that is out of this world, you know where to look: Legendary Games!

The Final Forest Friday! And a whole new world is coming!

Today brings the debut of the final book in our Forest Kingdom product line, and it’s been a long time coming. Here at last, Royal Tournaments! This book is an encyclopedic accessory for all manner of festival and tournament events, from mock battle like archery and jousting (along with boxing, tag-team wrestling, and more) to athletic events with running, jumping, racing, and more. You’ll find simple homespun country entertainments and tests of skill and craft alongside social events to elevate your fame and fortunes. Plus, you’ll find an awesome assortment of high-stakes, high-fantasy contests like the Siege Mortis, the tower of jewels, and the pillars of life and death! Over 40 pages of festival fun can be yours right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon!

The Pathfinder version is here now, and the 5E version is also moving along with our development team and should be available soon! This is the final chapter of new material for the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium, and once we finish editing our Kickstarter backer-contributed new kingdoms, that book will be ready for final assembly!

Speaking of Kickstarters, we also have big news in the world of Legendary Planet! The latest installment, The Depths of Desperation (5E), is in layout now and should be finished up this weekend, allowing us to send it out to our faithful backers at the beginning of next week. Right on its heels, Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons is scheduled to finish its development pass this weekend as well, and it will be headed to layout soon thereafter, along with To Worlds Unknown for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, which will start characters at 1st level and bypass the introductory prequel adventure, The Assimilation Strain! Our Starfinder conversion team is already hard at work on The Scavenged Codex too, and we are excited to provide this awesome adventure for all three systems.

But wait, there’s MORE! Today is also the dazzling debut of our Legendary Worlds product line, featuring the Legendary debut of Kate Baker with Legendary Worlds: Volretz, featuring a fiery forge-world swimming in molten slag-seas while the hardy mining colonies plunder its riches and stave off marauding monsters! This new book is available right new exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore and will be available next Monday in wide release!

Every installment of the Legendary Worlds series brings you a richly detailed planet to visit, complete with history, geography, and adventure hooks for why your heroes would ever want to find themselves there. Plus, every issue comes with new rules elements like feats, spells, magic items, and more, plus a brand-new monster. We have half a dozen new planets already in production, and each one will be presented for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Roleplaying Game (after August 17, of course), and 5th Edition!

If you’re a Legendary Planet Kickstarter backer, check your email, as you’ve got a special discount code that you can use on every issue of Legendary Worlds, but at just $4.99, anyone can afford to check out an entire world of exciting adventure! Plus, from fire to water, get ready for the polluted ocean planet of Legendary Worlds: Melefoni, where survivors of a fallen colony mission clash with the aquatic inhabitants in a race between domination and destruction!

A Legendary Beginning to a Crisis!

We are excited to announce the Legendary debut of Brian Suskind and Ben McFarland, an adventure equal parts bombastic and beastly as the latest installment in our all-ages Legendary Beginnings series: Crisis at Falling Spring Station! This awesome escapade on the wild and woolly frontier pits the PCs against treacherous fey and the savage soldiers of an ambitious warlord who wants to take over his very own keep on the borderlands! You can grab this marvelous module right now for Pathfinder at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon, and the 5E version is in layout now! 

This adventure was commissioned by special request from our Kickstarter backers on the Trail of the Apprentice project, and we are excited to bring it to you today! For a quick preview:

**********

Crisis at Falling Spring Station takes your heroes into a world of adventure! In the mountains at the western edge of the Kingdom of Threll, brave soldiers stand guard against the frightening creatures that dwell in the lands beyond. Falling Spring Station controls one of the passes leading through the mountains into the Westerlands and the Darkvale Forest, keeping the people of Threll safe. But a terrible illness has weakened the soldiers in this vital fort. After delivering medicine to help fight the disease, the heroes discover that there is more going on than just a simple illness. It’s up to them to put things right and find out what’s behind the strange happenings. What they uncover is a monstrous plot that threatens the safety of the whole kingdom. Can a small group of adventurers stand up to the mysterious Warlord of the North and his beastly army?

**********

Of course, this is just the start of the amazing adventures to come! First up, we have A Feast of Flavor (5E) coming your way this 5E Friday. Plus, we’ve just received a pair of awesome new adventure manuscripts, the horrifying The Whisperer in the Pit by the terrific Tom Phillips and the The Horseshoe Calamity by the radical Ron Lundeen, a terrific appendix to the first half of the Witches of Winter Adventure Path! Art orders are out and we look forward to having those adventures ready for you next month!

To the Stars on this 5E Friday, plus more Legendary Planet news!

Today we debut the latest Legendary Planet supplement merging sci-fi and fantasy for your 5E campaign: Stargates (5E)! You’ll find a robust system for creating and designing your own system of gateways to bring interplanetary adventure to your campaign, from local system portals to intergalactic wormholes, and not just the basics like direction and range but mysterious manifestations of transmaterialization energies, the dangers of activating dormant or damaged gateways, including malfunctions like biomutation, psychic backlash, and temporal displacement! Plus sample gateways, spells, feats, and more for launching your own interstellar network to bring the universe just a little closer together! You can pick up Stargates (5E) today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon!

You also can pick up Stargates for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon!

We also are excited to announce that Legendary Planet is coming to a whole new game system next month! For anyone planning to try out the new sci-fi RPG from Paizo debuting next month at GenCon, you’ll be able to use Legendary Planet as a campaign. We have added the amazing Lyz Liddell, who edited the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, to our team to assist in this project. She is working behind closed doors on Starfinder versions of the Legendary Planet Player’s Guide and To Worlds Unknown, which we should have ready in time for GenCon, and is continuing on with the remainder of the series as well.

 

Starting with a sci-fi game as a baseline removes the need for a fantasy-world prequel like The Assimilation Strain, so the Starfinder version will begin right off on the prison planet of Garsilt. Though the rules are different, the core theme and focus of Legendary Planet remains on exotic sword-and-planet action. Though the tech level is dialed up compared to the Pathfinder and 5th Edition versions, FTL starships remain unknown as the Legendary Planet setting can be assumed to be either on the far frontier, beyond the reach of FTL exploration in the core Starfinder universe, or to exist at some point in the past, during the mysterious gap in the historical record before FTL drives were developed.

Finally, we are delighted to announce a new product line we are working on for Legendary Planet, a series of standalone planetary supplements called Legendary Worlds! Each one contains a detailed planet, including history, geography, culture, points of interest, and adventure hooks, plus a brand-new monster and new rules elements unique to that planet. Each installment of Legendary Worlds will be available for 5th Edition, Pathfinder, and Starfinder. The first four installments are already underway, with the new planets ready to debut in August! Check out the dream-world badlands of the penthe, the aquatic asquenti in their water-sheathed supermersibles, the asteroid hives of Carsis hives of the endless forest, and the molten planet of Volretz!

Concept Sketch – Asquenti Armada, by Tyler Clark

Of course, Legendary Planet is just one of our many product lines – get ready for a new double dose of Legendary Beginnings next week, with A Feast of Flavor (5E) and Crisis at Falling Spring Station both coming your way! More previews to come this weekend!
