Legendary Beginnings are about to begin for Pathfinder and 5E!

Last Friday saw the spectacular debut of the latest installment in the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, with the awesome adventure To Worlds Unknown for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition! That’s a big adventure in a star-spanning saga, taking your heroes right out of this world and into the cosmos, and we think you’ll love every bit of it! However, everything big had to start small, and that’s where Legendary Beginnings come in.

 

 

No matter how long you’ve been playing RPGs, a challenge for gamers is bringing new players into the hobby, whether friends our age or younger players. Starter sets and boxes for beginners are great but not enough, and that’s why we started Legendary Beginnings, products designed to be tons of fun for experienced gamers with structure and content suitable for new gamers and younger players. The first adventure, Into the Feyweald, has received very positive feedback, but single adventures are one thing. We had bigger plans in mind, and with that, we invite you to support the Trail of the Apprentice Kickstarter, scheduled to begin next week!

 

Wizard's Dungeon Cover
Trail of the Apprentice is a 5-part series of exciting adventures suitable for all ages, available for 5th Edition and Pathfinder. These modules use simplified stat blocks and other rules adjustments to keep gameplay fun and fast for new players, with helpful sidebars that provide advice on how to run RPGs for younger gamers so your whole family can Make Your Game Legendary!

We are delighted to have a talented creative team on Trail of the Apprentice,  including lead author Paris Crenshaw, Mike Welham, Linda Zayas-Palmer, Matt Goodall, Amanda Hamon Kunz, and more lending their talents to this spectacular series of adventures! The first four adventures in the series all have been written and the fifth is well underway, along with bonus material for stretch and the campaign setting of Terralien inspired in part by the American Colonial era. Artwork for the AP is likewise nearly half-done, with the final art and map orders going out this week! When the Kickstarter ends on April 22nd, backers will be able to immediately download the first several adventures, and if all goes well they’ll be able to get all five as soon as the project closes, with print versions and the full compilation with bonus material available by the end of May!

 

NOTE: The creative team for Legendary Beginnings is entirely separate from the crew working on the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, save for some bonus goal contributions from authors that have already completed their work on Legendary Planet. Progress on Legendary Planet will not be delayed by anyone working on Trail of the Apprentice!  We are excited to get both adventure series in your hands as soon as possible!

 

Our regular product cycle continues as well! For 5th Edition, we are looking forward to the release this week of Beasts of Legend: Construct Codex (5E), featuring nearly a dozen creepy constructs themed for horror, from the bloodthirsty manikin to the crowflight carriage and the griever morgech to the living crematory!

 

Our Pathfinder fans can look forward to this week’s release of Occult Archetypes, with almost 20 new character options for their occult characters, and speaking of occult, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention it’s also MYTHIC MONDAY, which brings us Mythic Minis 82: Occult Feats II, from Psychic Virtuoso to Xenoglossy and more, which is available NOW at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, and DrivethruRPG82 Cover

Legendary Product Preview for February!

February may be the shortest month of the year, but it’s jam-packed with products you’re not going to want to miss! For starters, available right now exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore (and starting Friday in wide release) we are proud to present Mythic Monsters: Mesoamerica by Mike Welham and Jason Nelson, delving into the deliciously deadly myths and legends of Central and South America and the Caribbean, from chupacabras to tzitzimitls, including the brand-new fallen demigod Xipe Totec and both mythic and non-mythic versions of a brand-new prestige class, the plumed servant! 

Mythic Monsters - Mesoamerica Cover

There will be more mythic monsters coming as well, as our Mythic Module Monsters: Rune Lords series continues, with new issues coming out almost every Monday in celebration of MYTHIC MONDAY! You can pick up individual issues for 1.99 each or grab a subscription to all six issue of each AP for 10% off right here at the Legendary Games webstore!

Speaking of mythic, we are have already released mythic versions of all spells in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Advanced Class Guide in Mythic Magic: Advanced Spells III, but we are also closing in on the release of Mythic Magic: Occult Spells by Amanda Hamon Kunz, presenting mythic versions of all of the spells from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Occult Adventures, if not in February then hopefully next month. Of course, mythic isn’t all about monsters and magic, so we are also pleased to announce that February will see the release of a brand-new mythic path, the Path of the Reluctant Hero by Tork Shaw and Jason Nelson! Some heroes just don’t want to be the stars of the show, to just get home, to tend their home and hearth in peace, yet adventure and destiny keep finding them again and again, and every time they stand tall. This brand-new path should be available by next Friday, or the following week at the latest!

Of course, mythic is just one of the many things we’ve got going at Legendary Games! We are also delighted to present our second Legendary Beginnings adventure aimed at younger audiences and newer gamers, The Bandit’s Cave by Paris Crenshaw!

This great new adventure can stand on its own, of course, but it also comprises the first issue in the new five-part Trail of the Apprentice adventure path. Yes, that’s right, an entire AP designed especially for novice gamers! Here’s the promo text by the author:

Trail of the Apprentice
A hidden danger threatens the kingdom of Threll and brave adventurers must answer the call! A bold attack and a mysterious theft set a group of heroes on a mission to find the mastermind behind them. They must follow clues, face great dangers, and uncover ancient secrets to stop a madman before he can unleash a terrible evil upon the world.
Trail of the Apprentice is a 5-part mini-campaign, designed for beginners and younger players of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Each adventure takes your heroes through one character level, from 1st though 5th. Trail of the Apprentice is part of the Legendary Beginnings line, designed to create exciting adventures suitable for all ages. These modules use simplified stat blocks and other rules adjustments to keep gameplay fun for new players, and contains helpful sidebars that provide advice on how to run RPGs for younger gamers so your whole family can Make Your Game Legendary!
Now some of your more mature gamers might like something about grittier, and we have got you covered there as well. The long-simmering Metal Gods adventure Scorpions of Perdition by Alex Riggs and Nicolas Logue is slated for release later this month, featuring body snatchers, alien horrors, and a ruined city with secrets too impossible to tell!
ScorpioncoverSmall
Continuing in a creepy vibe, we also look forward to the release of the fifth in our series of occult character supplements, Occult Character Codex: Mediums by Julian Neale, bringing you fully developed stat blocks for occult mediums of all types from 1st to 20th level!

Depending on how production goes with several of our other projects, we may have some more exciting announcements on other long-awaited products and updates on the progress of the Legendary Planet project, but we’ll wait until we’ve got things closer to final completion before making any formal announcements.
We are looking forward to a fabulous February and we hope you are looking forward to some of these new products to help Make Your Game Legendary!

A Legendary Beginning for new gamers!

As the year comes to a close, we are delighted to unveil several new product lines, the first of which is Legendary Beginnings, a set of adventures and products for (surprise!) beginning gamers. This includes friends or relatives who have never sat down to throw dice, but they are especially suited for younger gamers just starting out in the hobby. Our initial offering is on final approach, so let me introduce it for you!

makeyourgamelegendary.com - Into the Feyweald (cover)

Into the Feyweald takes your heroes into a world of adventure in the realms of faerie! Guests at the fairy queen Pryozha’s celebration feast, the festivities are interrupted by the creepy, crawly spider-riders serving the wicked witches of the woods! You must take up the quest to find the hidden grove where Yaldira the witch works her dark magic, turning the forest sickly and rotten, battling her evil minions that menace the creatures of the wood. There, in the dark pits of her lair, you must stop her from awakening her cruel queen from her crystal tomb and save the woodland realm! This 1st-level adventure is suitable for a standard Pathfinder game or one using the boxed set for beginners.

 

Featuring the Legendary Games debut of Paris Crenshaw, who developed and playtested this adventure with his Girl Scout troop, Into the Feyweald is delightful romp through the fairy woods that will delight experienced games as well as newbies. Legendary Beginnings are immersive adventures that sacrifice none of the fun and richness you’ve come to expect from Pathfinder adventures by Legendary Games while taking a tone and artistic style that makes them suitable for all ages.

 

Into the Feyweald is in layout now, awaiting only the final maps, and should be available by next week. We hope you’ll be looking forward to more Legendary Beginnings for the new gamers in your family, friends, schools, youth groups, scout troops, and any new gamers looking for a fun and accessible adventure to give the hobby a try!

Fall Preview #7: A new beginning for beginners!

I started playing RPGs when I was 10 years old, and my youngest child is now 11, and he and his friends enjoy playing games with the beginner boxed set for Pathfinder and have played around with the starter materials for 5th Edition as well. You can always create your own adventures, or modify a published adventure to fit with the simplified rules mechanics, or use those starter materials to bridge the gap for your young players into the regular rules for each game. However, modern adventures often veer into subject matter that may not be appropriate for younger players, or with plot themes that may not grab and hold their interest.

To help bridge this gap, this fall we are introducing Legendary Beginnings, a line of adventures designed with younger players in mind. These are not simple, dumbed-down adult adventures; they are designed from the ground up to be exciting and fun adventures that can be played with adults and kids together. If you’re thinking about trying to run a game for a youth group, scouting troop, after-school club, or just the kids in the neighborhood, or if you’re a parent looking to introduce your own children to the best hobby in the world, keep an eye out for Legendary Beginnings! We have several products in the works already, but if you’ve got ideas for things you would like to see in kid-friendly Pathfinder or 5th Edition products, let us know at makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.com!
