We are super-excited to have not one but TWO massive new 5E sci-fi supplements coming your way in November! First off we are unleashing the dazzling 204-page Aethera Field Guide for 5E, with a comprehensive guide to the sixfold star system of the Aethera Campaign Setting! You’ll find nearly 60 new monsters from vermin and parasites to titanic plant beasts and the immortal paragons, plus tons of ecology on the flora, fauna, and history of each world, along with dozens of new feats, spells, character options, and technological and magical items! Blending science fiction with fantasy and a dash of cosmic horror and steampunk noir, the Aethera system is an awesome place for adventure whether you’re running a full-on sci-fi 5th Edition campaign or you just want to take a spectacular side trek into strange worlds beyond imagining for your regular 5E characters. You can grab this amazing book in PDF, print, or both at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

You can grab the Aethera Field Guide for Starfinder and Pathfinder too, and check out all of our best-selling Aethera and Aliens and Space products for all three systems, but we have a brand-new 5th Edition expansion coming your way this month too – the amazing Alien Codex! This titanic tome is 290 pages jam-packed with over 50 alien species, including fully developed playable race rules for over three dozen of them and over 200 ready-to-use stat blocks! Add to that over 100 new spells, feats, class options, magic and technological items, and an entire chapter of advanced high-tech armor and weaponry, and so much more! If you want to incorporate any amount of sci-fi in your 5E campaign, from alien invasions to far-flung frontiers, you have GOT to get ahold of the Alien Codex! It just went out to Kickstarter backers today and will be available to the general public later this month!

Of course, 5E Friday isn’t only about high-tech and sci-fi stuff! You also can find tons of terrific treasures for your 5E campaign in our new releases like Treasury of the Orient (5E) and the urban items and skulking supplies in Treasury of the City (5E)and the frost-bitten fey fun of the Treasury of Winter (5E) is right around the corner as well, hopefully ready for release next week!

Taking it WAY back into prehistory, this also is the FINAL WEEKEND for the Vast Kaviya crowdfunding campaign at GameOnTabletop, run by friend of LG Mike Myler!

Today we are excited and delighted to debut the latest expansion for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, the perfect supplement for playing out your star wars with your starship troopers: Star Battles! This fantastic 58-page supplement contains new starship options, including armor upgrades, weapon properties, security and sensors, expansion bays, damage control, hull types, defensive countermeasures, crew rules and actions, ship stunts, and more, but it doesn’t stop there!

The sci-fi doesn’t stop there, as our amazing Aethera Field Guide has now gone out to Kickstarter backers, and after a final review pass will be getting a few last-minute tweaks and then releasing to them and then on to YOU! This terrific 220-page tome is packed full of alien flora and fauna from the spectacular Aethera system, as well as rich and exciting lore for every planet and new rules elements like gear, feats, magic items, and more native to every world. If you are looking for an incredibly immersive interplanetary experience, look no further than the Aethera Campaign Setting and the Aethera Field Guide, coming your way this month for Pathfinder, with the Starfinder version in layout as we speak and the 5E version coming after that!

Pirates for Everyone – and so much more!

The last few weeks have been abuzz with activity, getting books out the door and shipping literally HUNDREDS of copies of the Pirate Campaign Compendium for Pathfinder and the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition out to our backers, along with tons of bonus books they pledged for. In fact, we’ve been so busy that we’ve sent out ALL of our backer and preorder copies of the Pirate Campaign Compendium (Pathfinder) and that means… YO HO, YO HO A PIRATE’S LIFE FOR EVERYBODY! Even if you missed the amazing nautical Kickstarter this spring, you can now get your very own 500-page print copy or print/PDF bundle at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizoand DrivethruRPG

Fulfillment on the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium is rolling merrily along as well, and once we’ve got all of our backer books out the door those books will likewise be available to everyone in the general public, hopefully before the end of June. We’ll definitely have copies of both books in time for GenCon!

Speaking of Kickstarters, the Fates of Madness Card Game Kickstarter is over halfway to its funding goal in just the first week! We are excited to see how far this game will go as we begin building a new audience for this new product line from Legendary Games and our partner on this project, Mythica Games. The team is traveling to numerous cons throughout the summer in support of the game, which they’ve been demo-ing and playtesting for months now, and we’re excited to have the project nearing completion where we’ll be ready to make it happen. Check out the Kickstarter right here, and the first update for a gameplay video!

Last but not least, we wanted to throw out a quick preview for Legendary Barbarians, the latest new class book for Pathfinder from Jeff Gomez, Jason Nelson, and N. Jolly! What will you find between these pages?

Legendary Barbarians is the latest volume in our series of class-focused player supplements, this time focusing on the fearsome barbarians! This core class has long been a staple of fantasy settings, representing both the power of anger and the rejection of civilization. Legendary Barbarians enhances these ideas with a streamlined redesign of the class that provides flexibility, flavor, and ferocity in a class that can tear your enemies apart! With Legendary Barbarians, the barbarian is able to choose the benefits of her rage, opening the class up to a limitless variety of concepts. Enlarging rage increases the barbarian’s size (Hulk Smash), while invincible rage lets her shrug off attacks with ease. Bestial rage transforms the barbarian to an animal and vicious rage sacrifices her hit points for greater damage. Dozens of alternate class features allow a piece-by-piece construction of your perfect barbarian, while 11 new archetypes (such as the mutagenic rager, slavering nightmare, and righteous berserker) tie your abilities together in a theme. The savage archetype trades out rage for a more stoic approach. The fury cannot stop raging. All this, plus new feats (like Wield Halfling), items, brands, and more!

The book is getting its final development pass this weekend and then it’s off to the layout queue to get ready for YOU! Get ready… THERE WILL BE BLOOD!

A very good 5E Friday – and Starfinder Saturday!

One of our most popular products recently has been the truly MASSIVE and malevolent 414-page Book of Exalted Darkness (5E)bringing you a wealth of wickedness in terms of rules and options for evil characters and campaigns, as well as the gloriously gonzo decopunk world of Aksis. Some of you fans have asked for more about that world, and what about the good guys there… and so ye shall receive. Coming tomorrow for your reading and playing pleasure, a truly blessed book, the Book of Celestial Heroes, and you can get it today at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Storeand DrivethruRPG

The demigod Celestial Heroes have conquered the world and raised civilization to precipitous heights but only YOU can save it from destruction!

On the eve of evil’s twilight as malevolence nearly became undone on the decopunk utopia of Askis the terrible machinations of rogue mad scientists instilled a vein of corruption throughout the populace. Though they are few these malcontents are irreprensibly vile and in tandem with the foul minds that touched their nascent souls with evil, the world once more needs heroes.

You are one such hero!

What’s in the Book of Celestial Heroes?

  • The goody-two shoes twin of the Book of Exalted Darkness
  • Two new classes–the Exemplar (a hero all about glory) and the revised Feywalker (when flight and fancy are more important)–along with holy archetypes for every class
  • Holy spells
  • Holy rituals
  • Holy feats
  • Heck, there’s even a holy hand grenade (which explodes on the count of 3–not 5, but 3)
  • The decopunk utopia world and Spheres of Askis, great works the PCs must bolster to save civilization from destruction
  • Tailored magic items that become more powerful as an adventurer gains prowess
  • Equipment and inaequa-technology that run the gamut from flashlights to jetpacks and locomotives (along with vehicular combat rules)
  • All the poisons plus a few new ones, diseases galore, and extra madness and insanities
  • Six powerful mad scientist villains each with their own lackeys and lairs joining more than 50 NPCs and monsters
  • Searching the River Styx, a scaling adventure for PCs of 3rd-16th level and just the right thing when the group goes down from an evil TPK!

Rise to the challenge of true goodness and mercy in this 286-page blessed book for 5th Edition today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Of course, that’s not all. Our layout team is juuuuuuuuuuuust about done with about a THOUSAND PAGES (not even kidding) of incredible supplements coming your way in the next week or so, but we are sending off the Alien Bestiary Companion to our Kickstarter backers this weekend, and are inches away from doing the same with the Pathfinder version of the Pirate Campaign Compendium. Best of all, RIGHT NOW you can grab the latest incredible installment in the spectacular Legendary Planet adventure saga for the Starfinder Roleplaying Game with Matt Goodall’s love letter to deathless despots, robotic oracles, tidally locked temporal disasters, and high-class heists in Dead Vault Descent, a 106-page mega-module for 8th-10th level characters! You can get it everywhere on Monday, but right now you can get it exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore!
