Aaaaand here it is!

Today we are pleased to release the latest in our Ultimate line of products that focus on the world beyond the dungeon - Ultimate Factions by Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate! You can grab Ultimate Factions right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon, starting at just $5.99!

This 26-page supplement is packed with information on working with rivals, factions, politics, and power brokers in your campaign, whether you're playing at an individual character party level or using the kingdom-building and management rules from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Campaign and Ultimate Rulership from Legendary Games! Your heroes may love bashing down dungeon doors and looting tombs, but the siren song of the city beckons, and where wealth and power collide that is where they'd better be ready to deal with thieves' guilds, merchant councils, grasping robber barons, power-hungry priests, skulking spy networks, and more!

But wait, THERE'S MORE! Next Monday will see the triumphant return of MYTHIC MONDAY, with a brand-new batch of mythological monsters for your campaign!

This incredible collection of creatures from the so-called Cradle of Civilization is coming your way, courtesy of Loren Sieg, Victoria Jaczko, and Jason Nelson! Mythic Monsters: Middle East brings you an awesome array of creatures malevolent and benign from the cradle of civilization, with creatures drawn from the mythology and lore of Persia, Mesopotamia, Israel, and Arabia. These incredible creatures range from CR 1 to CR 23, from seemingly the harmless horned almiraj to the hulking warlord humbaba and the soaring two-headed rukh. You will find savage and destructive divs seeking to ruin all that mortals create, from the staring evil eye of the aghash to the sinister whispers of the doru and the unbridled lust of the pairaka. Some Middle Eastern monsters would simply rather be left to their own devices but their wrath kindles hot and their vengeance is fierce, whether they appear to mortals as beautiful godlike nephilim or hideous scorpion-centaur girtablilu. There are spirits of the dead lurking in the shadows, embodying the power of absolute shadow like the owb or possessing mortals and driving them to madness and murder like the dybbuk. You will find guardians of good like the albino peri with their wings of fire, and at the opposite extreme the draconic embodiment of death and decay in the pestilential taniniver. As if a dozen mythic monsters were not enough, we also bring you the rainbow-plumed buraq, a skyfaring steed sent by the powers of heaven to bear the truly worth across the endless night sky. In addition, we present an array of rules for the desolate and deadly desert sands that are ever encroaching on the fertile crescent, bringing nature's fury and supernatural menace to the dust lands beyond life and hope.

But because we love you, you can get this new mythic monsters book RIGHT NOW exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore!

Next Friday (January 20) will be bringing you a double-shot of amazing Asian awesomeness, with the fantastic new 20-level class Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza by Jason Nelson and N. Jolly joining the incredible compilation of 110 Asian-themed arcane, divine, and psychic spells for all levels and 20 different casting classes in the Asian Spell Compendium by Jason Nelson! We'll have more extensive previews coming soon, but suffice to say that if you like an Asian influence even a little bit in your campaign, you are not going to want to miss these two supplements.

Of course, we've got other character options coming soon too, with Intrigue Archetypes coming for the Red Queen Adventure Path Plug-Ins and Magitech Archetypes for the Metal Gods Plug-Ins line, both off to layout this week, with yet more amazing material on the way soon! Have a great weekend everybody, and always remember to Make Your Game Legendary!

Check out cover previews and links to buy right here at the Legendary Games website!

We've been hard at work in the word mines and layout factories here at Legendary Games getting things ready for you. We've been putting a lot of resources into tying up the next couple of adventures in the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, with the Pathfinder version of Richard Pett's Confederates of the Shattered Zone going out to Kickstarter backers last weekend (and on track for wide release next month) and much more to come, including its 5E cousin and both versions of Matt Goodall's Dead Vault Descent. But that doesn't mean we don't have some other great new stuff coming your way, and the first preview for you is here!

ULTIMATE FACTIONS

This terrific new book by Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate brings the danger and intrigue of politics home to the kingdom your heroes have worked so hard to establish. They must successfully navigate the politics and rivalries of other power brokers, political groups, pious religious institutions, merchant councils, and more. Check out the product preview and get ready for this book to arrive THIS FRIDAY!

The sultan’s grand vizier is secretly plotting against him with other members of the court. The guilds are trying to bully small businesses. The neighboring country have spies in the palace. The city guard in the capital are under the pay of the thieves’ guild. The local druid circle aren’t happy about all the farms being built, or the woodcutting in the forest, and want the kingdom’s Councilor to help them persuade the king to put a stop to it.

All of these are themes from fantasy stories, but the core kingdom building rules introduced in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Campaign and expanded in Ultimate Rulership from Legendary Games focus primarily on your heroes and the decisions they make as the ruling council of their own kingdom. With Ultimate Factions, we provide you with detailed rules for different political factions, religious sects, and any number of influential power brokers and wealthy elites devoted to rising up and seizing whatever they can hold. Your heroes may play off their rivals against one another and use their wits to consolidate their own power and secure their throne from threats that can't be defeated by sword or spell. In the great game of houses and thrones, your heroes must triumph!

Check out a cover preview right here!

Trail of the Apprentice is getting high praise from GMs and players!

Kickstarter Backer "wolfknight75" shared this news with us:
"I just ran the first part of the Trail of the Apprentice 'The Bandits Cave' for my 2 daughters (9 and 11), son (13), and their friend (16). It was a Crit! They were both challenged as well as in awe of the encounters and and colorful NPCs. In fact, as they prepare for the next adventure, my wife is even thinking about joining them. I do want to mention, this is the first time my kids have played with the Pathfinder Rules. Normally we play with Atlas Kings by Hal Burdick (Which is a great beginner rule set too).

"I think you guys did a tremendous job on designing this as a novice adventure with young players in mind. We are moving on to the next leg of the adventure and this time we will have the AWESOME 'Trail of the Apprentice' Soundtrack By BattleBards. I have already listened to it and being a fan of BattleBards already, I wanted to give another shout-out to Legendary Games for making a great decision in choosing them to make the soundtrack. It is perfect and will couple with the adventure to make for an even more enjoyable adventure.

"Again, you guys at Legendary Games have always done great quality and well designed adventures in the past, but I have to say I think this is my favorite so far. I look forward to seeing more from you in the future. Great Job!"

Stay tuned for more fun from Legendary Beginnings in 2017!

Singhala (Monk Archetype)
Singhalas are mystic warriors that draw their strength and ferocity by meditating upon the great cats, emulating their stealth and cunning and aspiring to the noblest ideals they find embodied in their feline patrons. Singhalas are often loners and may be secretive and withdrawn, but once their allegiance is won they are loyal to the end.

Sure!

Flagellant (Unchained Monk Archetype)
Most monks seek calm, balance, and peaceful serenity to focus their meditations and guide their path to perfection. There are those, however, who see pain as a purifying instrument that helps them achieve a clarity impossible to reach in calm and comfort. Through mortification of the flesh and ritual scarification of the body, they find the unfolding of transcendent wisdom and enlightenment, as well as stimulation of their physical form to its peak of refinement. In their fanatic zeal, they often look down on those unwilling to make the sacrifices they do to achieve a higher state of being.

New Class Features

Stern Will (Ex): Improved Intimidate skill. This replaces the bonus feat normally gained at 2nd level.
Pain Tolerance (Ex): Quickly end nauseated, sickened, fatigued, or exhausted conditions. This replaces evasion.

Painful Inversion (Su): Gain temporary hit points from pain effects.
Traumatic Transcendence (Su): Embrace negative conditions or pain from critical hits to gain bonus ki or stunning fist uses, or an inquisitor judgment.
The Way of Pain (Ex): Deal nonlethal bonus damage when using stunning fist, and can stack stunning first effects. This replaces the AC bonus gained at 4th level and every 4 levels thereafter, though a flagellant still adds his Wisdom modifier to his AC and CMD.
Painful Probing (Ex): Use painful occult skill unlocks. This replaces purity of body.
Cilice (Ex): Wear a painful garment or item to gain save bonuses vs. emotion, fear, pain, and nonlethal damage, plus on Intimidate checks. This replaces still mind.
Stalwart (Ex): Save for no damage on Fortitude or Will partial effects. This replaces improved evasion.

So am I, and our first product of the new year should be available... TODAY!

Scarab Sages Contributor, RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4, Legendary Games

4 people marked this as a favorite.

This was an exciting year for the Legendary Games team, as we continued to broaden our reach and our product offerings. We published a total of 135 products, including 39 for 5th Edition and the remainder for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Some of these products were short PDFs and free supplements, but we still created over 100 full-size supplements, offering most in print as well as PDF, with a growing selection of our products available on virtual tabletops like d20Pro and Fantasy Grounds as well as on HeroLab! Legendary Games has published a huge array of products in the past year, including adventures, bestiaries, magic items, class supplements, setting material, and more, from 3-page Mythic Minis to the 300+ page Trail of the Apprentice Adventure Saga for Pathfinder and 5E.

The Trail of the Apprentice project is an adventure series aimed specifically at new and younger players, taking them from 1st to 5th level in a series of five adventures of growing complexity, helping them to learn not just the rules of the game but also the way to play a tabletop RPG. We launched this project with the aid of Kickstarter, funding at well over triple our initial goal and delivering the entire project in less than six months, including deluxe books, customized character sheets and swag, and character and creature cards. We have also used the Trail of the Apprentice saga and the growing Legendary Beginnings product line to host our first 5th Edition Summer Camp and to run mini-adventure delves at conventions. We are delighted to be part of growing the hobby and passing down the best games around to the next generation of gamers.

Legendary Games is an independent RPG publisher based in Seattle, Washington, but we are actively involved in the convention circuit, hosting booths and events at PaizoCon (including our second-annual massive multi-table Legendary Planet team event), GenCon, WolfCon, Gamehole Con, and the online AetherCon. We love getting in touch with fans directly and introducing them to our products, as well as sitting down and throwing dice with them! We are proud to offer support for many local conventions even when we cannot physically attend, and this year we provided prize support to 72 local cons (http://www.makeyourgamelegendary.com/cons/), as well as for RPG contests like Iron GM, the Four Horsemen Open at GenCon, and Here Be Monsters!

In 2016 we were able to finish up several long-running projects, including finalizing the HeroLab additions to our massive three-hardback expansion to the Pathfinder mythic rules (http://www.makeyourgamelegendary.com/products-page/mythic-plug-ins/), which we continue to support in our ongoing Mythic Monsters, Mythic Minis, and Mythic Magic product lines. We also delivered the cyberpunk/supers Hypercorps 2099 setting and companion adventures, including our first novella, An Undying Contract, and launched and funded the Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland expansion late this year.

Our last big project still in progress is the epic star-spanning Legendary Planet adventure saga, a sword-and-planet campaign for Pathfinder and 5E, featuring 100+ page adventures with bestiaries of new monsters, gazetteers of new worlds, new magic items, bonus articles, and an ongoing fiction saga to help flesh out the world. This ambitious project has gone more slowly than we would like, but with new additions to the development team we've managed to break through some logjams and are getting back on schedule, with an aim firmly in view of having the final hardback compilation available for GenCon 2017!

Legendary Games has a history of providing focused support on different campaign themes, with entire product lines devoted to Gothic Horror, Far East, Egyptian, Righteous Crusade, Metal Gods (sci-fi/fantasy), Pirate, Occult, Red Throne (urban intrigue), River Kings (and faerie forests), Mythos, and Winter-themed campaigns. These products are ideal supplements for the similarly themed official Adventure Paths from Paizo, Inc., but work equally well in any campaign that touches on the same genres. Our first Kickstarter project back in 2013 was the Gothic Campaign Compendium, taking 17 separate products combining them into a beautiful hardback. We are nearing completion on several more product lines, and we are definitely looking at running one or more similar projects to create hardback compilations for some of our other product lines in the new year.

We also are greatly expanding our offering of class-focused supplements for both heroes and villains. In addition to past heroic products focused on rogues, paladins, and swashbucklers, and villainous books dealing with antipaladins, evil clerics, and dark druids, 2016 brought us Legendary Kineticists and Legendary Vigilantes, plus Legendary Villains: Vigilantes. It also saw our first two hybrid classes, with the Kinetic Shinobi and Deadeye Hexer. We'll continue offering amazing class support in the new year, with Legendary Monks and Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza already in layout and Legendary Fighters, Legendary Gunslingers, Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches, and Legendary Hybrids: Doomguard coming soon thereafter. This is in addition to thematic class-focused products like Asian Archetypes: Martial and Asian Archetypes: Magical!

Adventures aplenty await as well, from The Hero's Ritual to On the Siberian Line, along with bestiaries like Mythic Monsters: Greek, Mythic Monsters: Middle East, and Mythic Monsters: Celtic, along with Beasts of Legend: Medium Monsters for when you want powerful monsters that aren't just high-level NPCs but also aren't titanic terrors twenty feet tall! Magic will also be found in plenty with terrific supplements like Treasury of the City and the Asian Spell Compendium!

A life of adventure doesn't begin and end in the dungeon, however, and we've long been huge fans of supporting the kingdom-building and mass combat system for Pathfinder. This year, we brought that same system to 5th Edition with Kingdoms (5E), and we have created 5E versions of our hit Ultimate Rulership, Ultimate Battle, and Ultimate War books. Of course, we're still expanding the system for Pathfinder as well, with Ultimate Factions in layout now and Ultimate Armies still on the docket for completion this year.

For gamers who enjoy a wide variety of systems, we are also pleased to announce that in 2017 we will be offering products for the Savage Worlds game system, starting with our series of pirate adventures. We've been looking forward to making our adventures available for this system.

To sum up, 2016 has been a tremendously productive year for Legendary Games. Even at that, we didn't complete everything we wanted to get done, but we are pleased with our progress and always keep our goals and our standards at the highest level. It's part of our core values as a company: Rule #1: We write what we want, how we want, when we want. Rule #2: Always Be Awesome. We've got a long history of working with incredibly talented and experienced writers, but this year we've also brought in some new contributors whose talents make up for a lack of experience. There is great diversity out there in the gaming world, and Legendary Games is happy to be a part of making sure that diversity shows up in the game industry as well, with authors and artists from all walks of life and all over the world.

Thanks to every one of our team for all their hard work in making our products Legendary, and to all of our customers for supporting us in the work we do. Happy gaming to all, and to all a great 2017!

when does it come out?

I've pushed the Asian Spell Compendium into its own separate product, now with 101 new spells for 20 different spellcasting classes. That product is done except for placing the art, and it's in the layout queue and should be available in early January. Several of the layout folks are traveling or otherwise having time off during the Christmas-New Year's week, so we'll see what gets done that week.

Asian Archetypes: Magical will now be a separate product like this one, with all archetypes (and similar class options, like bloodlines). Still writing on it, but should be done sometime next week and this will go in the queue then, so I'd guess ready to go public in late January.

Thank you N. Jolly! So looking forward to this.

BTW, I apparently missed legendary Kineticist I, could you if you have the time post a link for that? I love me some Kineticist.

Glad to hear it, and let me grab the link (all links to my products are in my profile here on Paizo.com):

Leg Kin on Drivethru

Leg Kin on Paizo

Legendary Kineticists didn't have an open playtest itself, as I only started to do open playtests for projects with Legendary Vigilantes, although after having ran a few, I've found that I enjoy the interaction with those who enjoy my products (and those who don't) enough to the point where they're a valuable resource. Community interaction and input is a large part of what helped make a lot of things in LV and LVV really shine, and so I welcome feedback from everyone.

Don't forget the Legendary Games webstore, the bestest place in all the land to get your LG fix!

It was really difficult deciding between Legendary Paladins and Legendary Rogues, but I think the Paladins have won out by a slim margin.

Legendary Paladins is such a GOOD book! :)

Thanks for the great review Endy and for letting us know about the glitches with this one. I've gone through the manuscript and fixed the missing item weights and a couple of phrasing issues. The issue with italics appears to be something with how the Word file converted in InDesign, so I've asked layout to revisit that and re-export with an eye toward making sure the italics come out properly.

I'll let folks know once the corrected version is up!

Yeah, this was originally going to be the backmatter article for the adventure Dead Vault Descent, but I ended up getting TOO MUCH GOOD STUFF to use, and this class was the best match size-wise for turning into a standalone product, so a standalone product it became!

Well, it's not QUITE available yet, but the manuscript is finished and the book is in review by the team and on track for release next week. This hefty supplement will likely end up around 40-45 pages, and it plays with monkish tropes from the Far East as well as other parts of Asia, plus Western monastic traditions, from meditative disciplines and psychic powers to purely martial mastery with punishing power and superlative speed. For a bit of a preview:

I think you'll find it to be excellent; I like what Jeff Lee has done with the class. However, I definitely look forward to someone posting a review!

It seems like Strange-Aeons plug-ins would be a natural for LG.
While it's not specifically Strange Aeons, they did just do one PDF covering and expanding on the rules for madness and insanity from Ultimate Horror. And more than one of the Gothic Grimoires PDFs work fine with cosmic horror.

For your convenience, we actually went ahead and made a Mythos product category for supplements that would fit quite divinely in a campaign with Lovecraftian elements.

A question regarding the Mythic Monster Mega bundle. Is this more than just a pdf bundle? Because if I put it in my cart, there are around 8$ of shipping cost included in the total price calculation.

Now given that the shipping cost for a single Mythic Monster issue is calculated with around 13$, I assume that there's a glitch in the shop software. But as that's the reason I'd rather have everything in pdf form, I'd rather ask beforehand if there's anything in this bundle that would be actually shipped overseas, causing the additional shipping cost?

That would be a glitch of some sort, as it's all PDFs. Thanks for letting me know. I've gone into the back end of the shop and fixed it, so try again and it should go through with no shipping.

I do wish Curtis did more "smart guy" stuff. He's supposed to be the "sixth smartest person in the DC universe" or something like that. He should act like it.

I just looked at the link, and it's great. I am really looking forward to Ultimate Factions. Will any of the rules from Ultimate Intrigue play a role in it?

I haven't seen the final version to say for sure, but from my conversations with Ben I'll say *yes*. :)

Legendary Games has a lot of great suggestions to tone down the most broken parts of the Mythic Adventures problem areas.

However if you're already running Mythic as-is I suggest you look at their Path of Villains plug-in. It's basically a mythic path just for the bad guys complete with path abilities that mirror stuff the PCs can do and more.

The great thing about Mythic is it breaks the rules. You can take back control of action economy by giving your Mythic Villains more actions! I especially like the ability that gives a villain a number of extra swift, immediate, or AoO equal to the difference in how many mythic heroes vs mythic allies it has. There's one that gives temporary Mythic Points that the villain has to use by the end of its next turn when a hero uses an ability that cost a mythic point against them. Making heroes re-roll or have to roll twice and take the worse roll is also great.

You also can get just this section of the book by itself as Mythic Solutions.

Hi all,

As we are coming toward the close of another year ye olde spreadsheets are getting pretty full and we can see interesting trends about what people liked and what they didn't, and I just thought a few might be of interest. We aren't QUITE finished with 2016 yet, but I was a bit staggered to discover that, already in the first 11 months of 2016, Legendary Games has published 129 new products, including 5E conversions of existing Pathfinder products. That probably explains why when I'm doing taxes the layout folks are usually near the top. :)

As of this writing, we are at precisely 350 products in our catalog. Considering we had 2 products in our first year (2011) and maybe a dozen in 2012, the acceleration has been something else.

I switched over how I was doing my spreadsheets in 2014, so it would take some work to reconstruct best-seller lists for earlier years, but just for the sake of amusement, here were our Top 20 products from 2015 in terms of total sales (including PDF, hardcopy, VTT files, and HeroLab files; it does not include sales as part of a Kickstarter - maybe it should, but that's a calculation for another day):

TOP 20 FOR 2015
1. Gothic Campaign Compendium
2. The Haunted Hamlet of Raven's Hill (5th)
3. Mythic Hero's Handbook
4. Road to Destiny (5th)
5. Ultimate Rulership
6. Mythic Skills
7. Mythic Monster Manual
8. Ultimate Relationships
9. Mythic Spell Compendium
10. Ultimate Commander
11. Ultimate Battle
12. Ultimate War
13. Road to Destiny
14. Treasury of the Fleet
15. Cyborgs
16. Treasury of the Machine
17. Unrighteous Villains
18. Mythic Monsters 1: Demons
19. Legendary Villains: Dark Druids
20. Mythic Minis 50: Lycanthropy

Honorable Mentions:
Treasury of the Kingdom
Mythic Monsters 5: Mythos
Path of the Genius
Legendary Paladins
Mythic Minis 60: Legendary Item Abilities
Path of Villains
Path of the Stranger
