I have talked to Tim about it, and while some of the requested retooling is a matter of taste, some changes are likely to be in the works. At the moment, Tim is heads-down on his chapter of the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons, but once he's on the other side of that we may be able to revisit this book and tweak it then.
hrm. I do like my LG products. I need to check your releases more often also. Jade Regent is probably my next AP so i need to also look up these eastern supports. Why do you folks hate my wallet with the the intensity of the blazing sun? Has it wronged you in a previous live incarnation?
Dude, we don't hate your wallet, we LOVE your wallet! :)
But seriously, if you're running Jade Regent, these products will make your AP much more awesome, and we have a couple more products coming in the next month or two to complete the series, so keep an eye here and on makeyourgamelegendary.com!
Maybe someone from Legendary Games can shine some light on this, are there any more products planned in this line, maybe even for other adventure paths?
I was talking to Mark about it just yesterday, and he's obviously been very busy with the day job wearing the blue golem shirt, but we do have at least two more of these planned. So far, while the base Ultimate Relationships product has sold very well, these individual characters haven't done as well, so we always have to balance return on investment of time and effort, so we'll see how the next two do for us and decide from there. Mark may be able to tease the two new characters upcoming; I think they are a lot of fun and will be very interesting and unusual relationship opportunities, and we hope you agree.

The monsters in this issue go from CR 10 to CR 22, and they're easy to use in any campaign. The only thing that connects them directly to RotRL is that is where they were first published (so obviously they appear in those adventures), but otherwise they are good to go anywhere you want to use them.
We are excited to announce that the Trail of the Apprentice Kickstarter for Pathfinder and 5E has doubled its funding goal with almost a week left to go! We're super-excited about brand-new bonus goals, like a set of pregenerated characters for the compilation ready to use right out of the box plus a set of new fiends of the Shadescar Rift by Mike Welham!
Next goal in sight is for a brand-new piece of cover art for the compilation, with more bonus goals besides for number of backers, Facebook likes, and more! We thank each and every one of you for your support, both those of you who have pledged and those of you who have helped spread the word. We hope all of you can keep us spreading the good word about Trail of the Apprentice for a spectacular six-day streak to the finish!
Of course, just because we're running a Kickstarter doesn't mean we aren't still bringing you a ton of great new product! Last week we brought you the Tomes of Ancient Knowledge and Treasury of the Macabre, bringing you a wealth of horror-themed loot for your 5th Edition campaign, and this week we bring you another load of loot, this time from the tombs and treasures of fantasy Egypt with Treasury of the Pharaohs!
With over 30 brand-new magic items themed for deserts and ruins of ancient fallen kingdoms and their mysterious monoliths, this book is sure to please the most dedicated treasure hunters! Pick it up today at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, or DrivethruRPG!
Better still, if you love for your 5th Edition game, next week we should be ready to debut the Treasury of the Kingdom, with nearly 40 new magic items around the theme of faerie forests, wilderness exploration, and the conquest and ruling of your own kingdom!
We also have a special bonus for our customers at the Legendary Games webstore: since I was camping on this past Monday, I wasn't able to post up the latest Mythic Mini devoted to the occult: Mythic Minis 85: Medium, Psychic, and Spiritualist Feats. You can pick it up in wide release wherever fine Pathfinder products are sold on next MYTHIC MONDAY as usual, but you can pick it up right now here at the Legendary Games webstore!
We'll have just one more Mythic Mini in this series before we switch our focus to feats of intrigue and more, celebrating the mystery and machinations unveiled in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Intrigue, starting the first Monday in May!
Is there any news about Legendary Fighter?
It's still on my list, but I'm slotting it behind the projects that have been waiting the longest. They've gotten bumped too many times for too many other things that it's my resolution for his year to finally get them out the door.
So yes, you'll definitely still see it, but after things like Royal Tournaments, Fort Scurvy, Ultimate Armies, and Way of the Blade.

Aw shucks, thanks for the kind words.
Speaking of Asian, you should be excited that we're hard at work right now on Imperial Intrigue, a set of Asian-themed intrigue-based archetypes! With that Way of the Blade we might be about ready to close the door on the Far East AP Plug-Ins line at last. Even if you can't afford to get all our stuff, at least you'll have a couple of new things to look forward to!
I was actually working on it last week before leaving on my camping trip. It's been sort of joined at the hip with Ultimate Armies, as working out the finer points of the troop template there plays a role with a lot of the kind of ship crew and castle defender encounters you find in the "inhabited" parts of the fort. I think I've settled on a way to do it systematically that works well enough, so things should be getting unstuck.
It pains me that we weren't able to get it out in February like I hoped, nor March, but I have a dogged determination to get not just this but the other long-languishing pieces up and out the door. My writing time has just not been what I thought it would be so far this year, but this thing IS going to get done. The final art is in and so are the final maps, and now it's just down to me getting the revisions and edits done that I need to do to get it out the door.
Thanks for your patience and for the virtual kick in the butt to keep it moving!
Dare we say... Ultimate Armies?
Got it in one. A section of the book is dedicated to presenting base military units both as units (for mass combat) and as troops (for use in standard adventurer-level tactical combat).
It's been more fiddly but I think I'm close to dialing in a standardized template for the way I want it.
And just like that we've already blasted past that stretch goal at $8,000 and we're careening like a runaway train towards our next one at $10,000, plus bonus goals at 200 backers, 1450 Facebook likes, and more! Thanks to all of you for your support, and keep spreading the word.
Woohoo, thanks much for the shout-out!
We are just TEN DOLLARS from our next stretch goal, and you know that YOU want to be the one to get us there! I can promise a very cool update and new art preview if you do!
These adventures are great fun for any gamer, Pathfinder or 5E, but are ideal for helping introduce new folks to the best hobby in the world. Hop on board and help make a great project even greater!
We've been totally slacking on keeping you updated with the latest occult plug-ins for Mythic Monday! Must have been those psychic spirits messing with our heads. In case you missed them, you definitely want to pick up:
Mythic Minis 82: Occult Feats II lets you explore new psychic specialties and mysteries of the mind with 10 new mythic feats from Spirit Sense and Psychic Maestro to Xenoglossy and Shatter Mental Mask!
Mythic Minis 83: Mesmerist Feats brings you 14 fantastic feats to enhance your mesmerist's legerdemain, from Compounded Pain and Intimidating Glance to Excoriating Stare and Greater Mesmerizing Feint!
Mythic Minis 84: Kineticist and Occultist Feats helps you unleash the power within with 12 new mythic feats from Parting Blast and Strong Implement Link to Kinetic Leap and Interweave Composite Blast!
Each and every one, only a buck! We have two more in our occult series before we switch gears and start bringing you Mythic Minis devoted to the brand new Ultimate Intrigue hardback!

I believe the preliminary list for North America is as follows:
As you'll see, it includes a large number of aboriginal creatures plus a handful of more modern cryptids. The above is the uncut list culled from Bestiary 1-5 (plus one from Rise of the Runelords); exactly which ones we do will depend on which ones the authors are most excited to do.
If there are particular North American monsters we've missed or that you'd especially want to see, give them a shout!
No foolin’! Legendary Games began five years ago today, with the original core team of Clark Peterson, Jason Nelson, Neil Spicer, Clinton J. Boomer, and Neil Spicer.

We are delighted and humbled by all the support we have received, and thank each and every one of you that has helped us Make Your Game Legendary!

Legendary Games is pleased to celebrate our 5th anniversary today, and while we are delighted to support 5th Edition gaming every day with terrific supplements, we are especially excited to announce a rollout of a bunch of terrific PDFs and products, starting today!

If you're running that adventure saga, you'll also be very interested in next week's upcoming Treasury of the Macabre, featuring 30 brand-new magic items from common trinkets to rare and mighty treasures, all themed for a variety of horror scenarios.
That's not all the treasure coming your way, though! If your adventures bring you into the lands resembling ancient Egypt, you'll also be excited to see next week's Treasury of the Pharaohs, featuring more than 30 more magic items with the flavor of the burning sands, dusty tombs, and ancient kingdoms of the desert and river.
Finally, if you are looking for an introductory adventure to help bring in new gamers to the hobby, especially on the younger side, you should be very intrigued by the faerie hijinks and mysterious happenings they'll find in Legendary Beginnings: Into the Feyweald, an introductory adventure for 1st level characters. Even better, you have three weeks left to check out the Trail of the Apprentice Kickstarter, a complete introductory adventure saga going from 1st to 5th level, which has already funded and is now rolling into a series of terrific bonus goals. Hop on board today and help make the final product even better!
We have even more great 5E product coming later this month and in the months to come, and we hope you'll continue to check us out for supplements for your 5E game, so we can help Make Your Game Legendary!
As a father, I am very excited about this kickstarter.
As a father, so am I! :)
I'm delighted with the positive response we've seen to it so far and am looking forward to the expansions we have planned with stretch goals. I also just got off a conference call talking about some very interesting additional possibilities on the Realmworks platform! Stay tuned!
Check out the latest, with 23 days left for more, More, MORE stretch goals and bonus material! We're already looking at around 160 pages of adventures taking you from 1st to 5th level, available for Pathfinder and for 5E, with more still to come!
Five fantastic adventures, one for each level, playable for all skill levels but ideal introductory adventures for new and younger gamers! Set in a campaign setting inspired by the Colonial era in North America, the Trail of the Apprentice saga brings you intrigue, action, and adventure for all ages.
The Bandit's Cave for 1st-level characters
Adventures 1-4 are already written (#5 is being written right now), and over half of the artwork and maps are already complete. Backers should be able to download the first adventure (and hopefully several more) immediately once the Kickstarter ends on April 22nd, and we aim to have the full compilation ready in time for PaizoCon at the end of May!
Check it out, spread the word, and let us know if you have any questions about this project!

Will the Occult archetypes be only for Occult classes? A medium barbarian or a psychic oracle would be much needed.
The archetypes in this book are for the six new psychic classes, plus rules for psychic monsters, interfacing with elemental wizards, and more.
We are working on a followup product that addresses occult archetypes for classes outside the book (including some hybrid class concepts); a psychically empowered barbarian is one we've gotten a few times. So that is coming later this year.
Meanwhile, Occult Archetypes hit some a delay in layout and it didn't get into Paizo before approvals closed Friday, so it won't be available here until Monday; however, you can pick it up right now at the Legendary Games webstore!
When we want to bring new gamers into the hobby, whether friends our age or younger players, starter sets and boxes for beginners are great, but not enough. That's why we created Legendary Beginnings, products designed to be tons of fun for experienced gamers but with structure and content suitable for beginners, young and old. Now we'd like to take that to a whole new level with a 5-part series of exciting adventures, suitable for all ages, the 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 terrible threats, and uncover ancient secrets to stop a madman before he can unleash a terrible evil upon the world.
The adventure saga includes 5 adventures, which are available in PDF or as a print compilation, for Patfinder, 5th Edition, or both:
The Bandit's Cave for 1st-level characters
Each adventure is an action-packed delight, but also include 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!
#kickstarter #5E #Pathfinder #beginner #TrailoftheApprentice
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! You can check out the first big announcement right here or keep on reading!
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 DrivethruRPG!
The spectacular saga of Legendary Planet begins in earnest with "To Worlds Unknown," a hundred-page behemoth featuring not only a massive adventure but also new magical and mundane items, a bestiary, an entire planetary pantheon, a gazetteer of the crossroads world of Argosa, and the first in a 7-part short story series by award-winning author Chris A. Jackson. Salutes go out to author Jim Groves, and contributing authors Thurston Hillman, Jeff Lee, Jonathan H. Keith, Sean K Reynolds, and Dan Dillon for their fantastic work making this adventure a reality.
This amazing adventure for 2nd to 5th-level characters is available for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition, and you can pick it up in PDF and print wherever fine gaming products are sold.
If you don't already have them, you also can pick up the 1st-level prequel adventure, "The Assimilation Strain," as well as the Legendary Planet Player's Guide featuring four new playable races, special campaign background traits, and more!
Thanks for the shout-out. I had a lot more ideas for expanding the kingdom and mass combat rules after writing that section of Ultimate Campaign, and those supplements add a lot of great information.
As for the OP's request, there will be some of that presented in the long-in-production Ultimate Armies, which I'm HOPING to have done by PaizoCon. It won't be encyclopedic for all of Golarion, but my intention is to include army-style stat blocks for all AP adventures that feature mass combat scenarios. I've got a pretty good list of them, but if anyone would like to shout out mass combat-type scenarios from APs that they'd like to make sure are included, list them here and I'll work to include them. I haven't read some of the newest APs, so if there are scenarios there that might be usefully outlined in mass combat form, shout em out!
(I should point out, of course, that any armies and scenarios we present will have to be euphemistically named, so as to make clear what it is we are talking about without actually using Paizo's protected IP.)
Check out the latest news and updates for the Legendary Planet project right here, including progress on developments with "Planetary Heroes"!
Another good thing for publishers that have their own webstores, like, say, Legendary Games, is to buy directly from them. That won't help with their Paizo newsletter sales numbers like the OP is referencing, but buying directly from them means they are only losing around 5% in transaction fees rather than 20-35% on PDFs or 30-50% on print.
On PDF vs. print, the profit margin is generally better for publishers on PDF, but at the same time buying print can help publishers clear inventory that they've already bought and paid for, so there's a benefit either way.
For Legendary Games, historically Paizo always has been our biggest sales venue, but the gap between it and DrivethruRPG has shrunk considerably, and last month was actually the first month ever that our revenue from DrivethruRPG exceeded our Paizo revenue. I'm not really sure why the sales lines from those two sites have converged, but it has definitely happened.
We at Legendary Games enjoy the new occult rules for Pathfinder that debuted last year, and we've been trying to help people incorporate occult classes in their games with a full series of Occult Character Codex for each class, and we're working on some other products that are bubbling along in the background, like a new Treasury of the Occult and working occult elements into some of our other products, like creatures with psychic abilities in our Mythic Monsters series.
Speaking of mythic, though, we are about to dive into that pool much more deeply, and that starts tomorrow with the release of Mythic Magic: Occult Spells!
Our latest addition to the mythic options available for Pathfinder RPG is in layout as we speak! We are pleased to announce the Legendary debut of Amanda Hamon Kunz, who teamed up with Jason Nelson and Jonathan H. Keith to bring you a brand new collection of mythic magic that will blow your mind!
Mythic Magic: Occult Spells brings you you 129 all-new mythic spells from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Occult Adventures! While the original mythic rules for Pathfinder included many cherished favorites from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook as well as the other core rules hardback rulebooks and the Mythic Spell Compendium compiled a vast array of mythic spells for your game, new rules for Pathfinder continue to come out and spellcasters have a continual supply of new tricks to try from more recent rulebooks. If you like occult mysteries and psychic magic, this is the book for you as it completes the mythic rules for every spell in Pathfinder Roleplaying Occult Adventures. All of them, from akashic form to withdraw affliction and all spells in between.
Whether you're a true psychic spellcaster or a user of arcane or divine magic who simply dabbles in the world of spirits and psychics, Mythic Magic: Occult Spells contains mythic spells of every level and every kind, from minor spells to the mightiest magics. You will find combat spells like id insinuation, synaptic overload, and explode head right alongside defensive magic like sealed life and tower of iron will, spells to aid your allies like dream voyage and contagious zeal, and utility spells like akashic form, create mindscape, and bilocation! Grab this book today and make the occult Legendary!
As if that weren't enough, next month will also see the triumphant return of our Mythic Minis line, as we bring you mythic versions of every occult and psychic feat, with plans afoot to add to that mythic versions of the class features for each occult class and possibly even a new occult and psychic-themed mythic path to join the just-released Path of the Reluctant Hero!
We have some very other very exciting projects that will be announced in March, so stay tuned for all the latest right here or on our website at makeyourgamelegendary.com!

The answer to both questions is... not yet.
However, there will be a lot on troops in the high-level pirate adventure Fort Scurvy and in Ultimate Armies, both of which I'm working on right now!
A brand-new pirate adventure for 6th-level characters is coming this week from Legendary Games. Set sail for adventure to Tarin's Crown and see if you can wrest the Pirate Queen's Pearl from the clutches of a captain gone mad!
It's a perfect complement to the 4th-level nautical adventure Spices and Flesh, already available, plus a pair of higher-level pirate adventures coming soon - Scourge of the Steaming Isle and Raid on the Emperor's Hand!
Check out a preview for Tarin's Crown right here! The adventure is in layout now and should be available later this week in PDF and print.
On this MYTHIC MONDAY, we celebrate a septet of spectacular new mythic monsters in Mythic Module Monsters: Rune Lords 4, available now at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and the Open Gaming Store!
We also thank Endzeitgeist for his scintillating review of Mythic Monsters: Plants, which he calls simply one of the best in the entire series. Considering how much he liked some of its predecessors, that's high praise indeed.
Check out the details, as well as special savings on Mythic Monsters: Plants as our TWO$DAY product of the week, and get ready for next week's offering up to the occult, as Mythic Magic: Occult Spells is on track for release at the beginning of March!
Of course, we've got plenty of other things going on, but today is MYTHIC MONDAY, so rejoice!
Funny you should ask...
Our next Mythic Magic book is approaching release, probably for early March, and that is, of course, Mythic Magic: Occult Spells! It has been in process for a while, but various contributors' writing schedules have conspired to push it back from when we had originally hoped to release it (which would have been around Halloween last year). Hey, things happen!
We have also laid out the relaunch of our weekly Mythic Minis, which will likewise be starting back up next month, with the following (I haven't applied numbers to each, as the order may change depending on which ones get done first):
Mythic Minis: Mesmerist Feats
We also have plans to create mythic class features for the occult classes, which we might release as part of the Mythic Minis line or as a single larger product. That's a bit farther down the road so we'll have to wait and see how it shakes out.
TL;DR - YES, we are doing mythic occult, and it's COMING VERY SOON!

Yep, Rednal has it right. We've also been getting a number of our high-end backers and their content-based rewards organized, but I think that's pretty well in hand. We should have a new update going out by next week.
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!
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 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:
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!
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!

I have been jotting down notes about revisiting that side of the Ultimate Campaign rules once Ultimate Armies gets done. That is, more stuff around kingdoms, organizations, etc. I agree that it would be better to incorporate the new Ultimate Intrigue stuff into that, as it will obviously be highly relevant to that part of the game. :)
Any chance you would be returning to the Mercenaries book for the Ultimate series?
Ultimate Armies (with mercenaries) is on my desk right now, along with a couple of other long-simmering books that people have been waiting on for a long time (Fort Scurvy, Royal Tournaments, Way of the Blade), and I've been bouncing between them and developing other manuscripts that have been coming in. I expect to have at least one of them done in February, and hopefully more than one if things go well.
The pyramids of Egypt are known around the world, but the pyramids of Central America are equally impressive, and Legendary Games is going to be visiting both places very soon! First off, coming this week from the land of ancient Egypt, a brand-new adventure from Alex Riggs and Jason Nelson, including an appendix of fantastic new spells of the ancients. Check out The Lost Library of Thoth!
While some raiders of the ruins of ancient lands lust for gold and glory, the wise seek knowledge and the lore of the fallen empires. Somewhere below the desert sands lies a treasure trove of forgotten secrets and magical mysteries under the wings of the Scribe of the Heavens, Thoth. The cult of this archaic patron of knowledge is long dead, but fragments and clues lead you to a hidden shrine that once bore his name. Will you find legendary wisdom and mystic rewards untold, or will the tests of mind and body within reveal only secrets man was not meant to know?
The Lost Library of Thoth is a 7th-level adventure for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game that can be played on its own or as a complement to the second or third volume (#80-81) of the Egyptian Adventure Path from Paizo, Inc.
But wait, there's more! Coming next week is the latest installment of our new Mythic Monsters books focusing on real-world myths and legends, Mythic Monsters: Mesoamerica!
This marvelous mythic bestiary brings you an awesome array of monsters drawn from the myths and legends of Central and South America, plus a few from the Caribbean, courtesy of Mike D. Welham and Jason Nelson. In addition, we present the mortal servants of the wise and benevolent couatl, the plumed servant prestige class, designed for standard Pathfinder campaigns plus mythic versions of all of its class abilities! What monsters can you expect in this one? Check it out!

No matter where your campaign roams, from east to west, across deserts or oceans or jungles, drawing inspiration from the oldest myths and legends of every culture, more mythic monsters are coming your way!
Legendary Games has produced well over 100 products for the mythic rules, and most of our contributors were people who worked on the official mythic rules. The Mythic Hero's Handbook is a great place to start if you're looking for mythic content, not only because there's a detailed section devoted to fixing the glitchy spots in the mythic rules (which you can also buy separately for just 2.99 in the Mythic Solutions PDF), but also because it already contains four entirely new mythic paths:
The Genius, focusing on characters who fuel their destiny with intelligence, cunning, cleverness, and technological experimentation.
The Stranger, focusing on characters who are lone wolves and high plains drifters, succeeding by toughness, resourcefulness, and an air of mystery.
The Living Saint, focusing on characters who ascend toward a path of near-divinity themselves, bargaining with the powers of the planes but serving none.
The Overmind, focusing on characters who use mental powers to achieve purity and power. This last path was developed by Dreamscarred Press for our mythic series and is designed for use with their psionics system (an update of the 3.5 psionics rules), but with a bit of work it could be used in conjunction with the occult rules.
We also have a new mythic path coming soon, which we'll be announcing shortly.
That said, we do have some mythic products lined up for the official Pathfinder occult rules, including Mythic Magic: Occult Spells, and we could entertain the idea of a mythic path focused on the occult or mentalism. What kinds of things would you like to see an occult/psychic-focused path be able to do?
