LEGENDARY GAMES PARTNERS WITH PAIZO INC ON KINGMAKER CROWDSOURCING INCLUDING RULES FOR P2, P1, AND 5E!

KINGMAKER CAMPAIGN

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Seattle, WA, (May 7th 2016) – Legendary Games announces today their partnership with Paizo Inc. on the Kingmaker 10th Anniversary! The project will include expanded hardcover compilation of the Kingmaker Adventure Path, Kingmaker Companion Guide, a Kingmaker Bestiary for Pathfinder First Edition, and a Kingmaker Bestiary for 5E.

Paizo’s Kingmaker 10th Anniversary crowdfunding campaign at KingmakerCampaign.com is based around four books: the Kingmaker Adventure Path converted to the newest Pathfinder edition, the Kingmaker Companion Guide inspired by the Owlcat Games CRPG, an old-school Kingmaker Bestiary for Pathfinder First Edition, and a Kingmaker Bestiary for 5E converted by Legendary Games. More add-ons and unlocks will be revealed as the campaign progresses over two weeks on Game On Tabletop. The campaign will end on May 21 at midnight.

Paizo Publisher, Erik Mona said, “We are excited to bring 10 years of development and innovative expansions back to the gaming table. The only question is… how ambitious do we get? That’s where you come in. Help us celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Kingmaker Adventure Path and bring this epic campaign to a new generation of gamers—and to your own tabletop!

A stunning 576-page hardcover, the Kingmaker Adventure Path provides GMs everything they need to run this epic campaign. All six chapters published by Paizo in 2010 will be updated to Pathfinder Second Edition rules, incorporating a decade of player and GM feedback and new characters, conflicts, and plots inspired by the best-selling digital adaptation of the campaign that released last fall—including a new prologue making its tabletop debut in this release! Detailed appendices provide GMs with flavorful gazetteers of the campaign’s myriad locations, from the Stolen Lands at large to the rival city of Pitax. The Kingmaker Adventure Path also features complete rules for hex-map exploration and kingdom building and management to bring the campaign’s most innovative elements to life at the table. Lastly, a bestiary of new and updated monsters that feature prominently in the Adventure Path give GMs of any campaign new tools to torment their player characters with! As the campaign levels up, the size of this book will grow to include new content!

The adventures don’t stop in Kingmaker’s core campaign, though. Inspired by the hit CRPG from Owlcat Games, the Kingmaker Companion Guide is a 32-page softcover compendium designed for Pathfinder Second Edition. Additionally, the book has the potential to increase in pages as the crowdfunding campaign levels up.

Paizo and Legendary Games both have old-school Pathfinder players who will be covered with the hardcover Kingmaker Bestiary for Pathfinder First Edition; a 160-page monster and NPC resource that converts the new companions, NPCs, and monsters unlocked by this campaign into Pathfinder First Edition. They can play along in the new and updated encounters with this helpful conversion guide featuring back-converted stats for the entire Kingmaker campaign, plus other rules conversions, tips and tricks to run the campaign as smoothly as possible.

Why limit the fun of the Kingmaker Adventure Path to Pathfinder players? With the Kingmaker Bestiary for 5E add-on, GMs and players of the fifth edition of the world’s oldest roleplaying game gain access to more than 140 monsters and key NPCs from the Kingmaker Adventure Path! With 5E conversions by Legendary Games, this 160-page hardcover volume is an add-on from day one. Whether used as a companion volume to help convert the entire Kingmaker campaign or as a handy way to add new challenges and foes to 5E campaigns of all varieties, these time-tested critters and foes are sure to keep players on their toes!

Legendary Games Publisher Jason Nelson exclaims, “”We love Kingmaker at LG, with our team having written 5 of the original adventures plus tons of new adventures and accessories like Ultimate Rulership and the Forest KingdomCampaign Compendium to expand the AP, kingdom building, and mass combat, and we are thrilled to lend our multi-system expertise to this project. This project is a great opportunity to introduce 5E fans to the great stories, rich flavor, and killer design that have always been the trademarks of Paizo and LG, while also providing awesome updates to long-time Pathfinder fans and creating a whole new legend for the new edition!”

Ultimate Relationships is coming for 5E!

At long last, we are ready to bring you the latest expansion for your 5E campaign with the amazing Ultimate Relationships by Mark Seifter and Matt Kimmel, bringing you a concise yet robust system for building exciting and enriching relationships between your PCs and the characters around them in the game world. This 32-page guide contains the base rules for building relationships, including benefits and boons as well as dealing with rivalries, romances, and more, plus six sample NPC relationship roles ready to use! What is this book all about? Check it out!

A good RPG campaign, like any good story, needs conflict and antagonists to lend it immediacy and drama. But a campaign with pure conflicts, without allies, family, romances, and other connections to friendly characters, quickly grows stale. Much like Shakespeare’s comedic drunken porter scene in Macbeth released tension intentionally to strengthen the impact of the revelation of Duncan’s murder just after, so too can points of lower intensity spent with friendly NPCs increase the impact of the game’s dramatic high points. And sometimes, the relationships themselves can provide their own high points, their own drama, and powerful transformations that make a character more than just a set of statistics or an unrealistically uncaring avatar. This book contains a system for relationships that provides a meaningful progression and story for each NPC, secrets to uncover as the relationship progresses, and hurdles for the PC and the NPC to overcome together. Unlike other relationship systems that bottleneck on certain skills, often Diplomacy, Ultimate Relationships allows everyone to progress and reveal the NPC’s story at their own rate; it just might take some characters longer than others. Much like the strong traditions of literature and television series about journeys, the physical journey is also a metaphor for the inner journey that each character takes along the way, progressing into someone different than they were at the beginning. With Ultimate Relationships, your PCs can join each NPC along his or her own personal journey. With their lives and fates intertwined, your game will never be the same.

Coming THIS 5E Friday from Legendary Games!

Legendary Planet… that star is almost ready to KILL!

We got a ton done over last weekend and earlier in the week but had to pause for a few days to work on payroll and taxes before getting going again last night. We also had a layout cycle pause, as one layout artist had to pack up for a cross-country move, but our backup on this project was ready to go by Thursday and he now has the in-progress InDesign files and already has begun work on keeping the momentum going! In fact, I’ve got layout samples to show below! But first, the Complete-o-Meter!

1.  The Flesh Pits of the Jagladine are finished (and in a way that I think really honors the creepiness of the jagladine as one of the long-running villain groups of the story, as well as presenting certain problems for the high-level heroes that you just can’t punch or stab) and the Chiroptiary Barracks begun. These are the last sections of Chapter 3, so once those are finished and we do a last cleanup pass on the chapter as a whole, it’ll be ready to go and then on to developing Chapter 4.

2.  5E Conversion on Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 is done! The 5E team has pivoted over to the appendices, and the Bestiary section is mostly done as well, as is Adventuring in the Void. They should be finishing those up soon, just in time to pivot back to Chapter 3 when we send out the final version.

3.  The maps are complete! I’ve been working with Michael Tumey back and forth this week on some refinements and finishing elements, with the Ultari Parliament building for Chapter 4 the last in the bunch. One last edit on some troublesome staircases (no, really) and that’s it.

4.  Word count is currently over 56,000 and climbing, just for the adventure. Final count will probably land around 65,000 when it’s all said and done. Add that to the five appendices at a total word count of over 25,000 and you’ve got a total book that’s double the size of the earlier already-massive chapters in the saga.

Hey, I cannot apologize enough about how long this project has taken, but one thing is for sure: At the end of the day, no one will be able to say this finale wasn’t EPIC!

I’ll be taking my youngest to go see Shazam! today, then back to the word mines. (I saw it once already with my older son and we had a great time – check it out if you haven’t!) But first, FINISHED LAYOUT PREVIEWS!

A brand-new monster from Steve for Chapter 4 alongside one created by a backer!

*sigh* Yes, there’s a typo, but the rest of it is totally rad!

If there’s a theme for this adventure, it just might be… BOOM! 🙂
