ULTIMATE KINGDOMS is Coming for 5E and Pathfinder!

Since the Kingmaker Adventure Path 10th Anniversary book project launched and it was announced Legendary Games was partnering with Paizo to translate that entire AP to Pathfinder 2nd Edition, with bonus books added for 5E and Pathfinder, people have asked the question: What about the kingdom-building and mass combat rules? They will definitely be in the final AP book for Kingmaker for PF2, but what about for 5E and PF1? Funny you should ask…
WELCOME TO ULTIMATE KINGDOMS – LAUNCHING JUNE 5th! 
Heroes in RPGs find fame and fortune in their adventures, but why just be rich as a king when you can actually BE A KING? Carving out a domain of your own has been a part of games like D&D since the beginning, and Ultimate Kingdoms is an ideal supplement to expand your campaign beyond epic journeys and dungeon delving. Your character should really be somebody in the campaign world, making their mark and building a legacy that will last, and that’s where Ultimate Kingdoms comes in!

You’ll find rules drawn from our best-selling Ultimate line to bring you an awesome array of options for extracurricular activities, including:
  • Kingdoms (5E)– core rules for creating cities, nations, and armies*

  • Ultimate Strongholds– classic castles and fantastic fortresses
  • Ultimate Shipsship-to-ship combat, fast-play fleet combat, ship modifications
  • Ultimate Commander – a brand-new character class leading their squad on adventures!
  •  and as part of the stretch goals, the never-before-published Ultimate Armies, featuring mercenary bands, logistics, a bestiary of troops, and more! 
As the campaign continues, the book will get bigger and better with stretch goals aplenty and special guests you’ll be excited to see, each of them making this book more amazing! Plus, you’ll be able to write yourself into the book with special sponsorship opportunities! Best of all, the book is already written! We’ve learned from past projects to get all our ducks in a row well in advance! We are ordering new artwork and have even more we can add as funding continues, but this book will be ready for layout by the end of July and ready to get back to you by the end of 2019! 
If you’re coming to PaizoCon this weekend and want to learn more about this incredible new project, come see us at our What’s New with Legendary Games? panel Sunday at 11 AM in Cascade 8! And remember…

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!

A terrific TWOsday times two!

Today is a terrific Tuesday here in Legendary land! First of all, after many weeks of slacking I’ve finally updated our TWO$DAY product of the week, with Ron Lundeen’s terrific adventure, The Horseshoe Calamity! You can get this wild and woolly Pathfinder adventure into the winter wilderness right now for just $2 right here at the Legendary Games webstore!

Even more exciting, I’ve just finished tabulating our sales and payroll for the past month and, while we like to call out products that join the Millennium Club that have sold at least a thousand copies (Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex (5E) looks like the next one in line to join the club), but this month we have twice as much reason to celebrate because Ultimate Rulership has now DOUBLED that mark, crossing the TWO THOUSAND sales mark! The 5E audience has been enthusiastic in their support too, not just for Ultimate Rulership (5E) and its sequels, but also the core 5E kingdom-building and mass combat rules in Kingdoms (5E), which has sold more than 1000 copies on its own as well!

We thank each and every one of you who has checked out this exciting product line, and we hope to have some BIG news coming for you later this spring! Ultimate Relationships (5E) is in production right now and will shortly be heading to layout, with Ultimate Strongholds (5E) to follow right after it. That’s exciting, but there’s something bigger coming. Something truly… ULTIMATE!
