Trying to buy the new legendary planet (Dead vault descent) from the Legendary games website but having a lot of trouble with it. Keeps asking for a shipping address even though its just the PDF I'm trying to buy.

(also for whatever reason even if it was a physical copy I was getting there dosent appear to be an option to send to the uk.)

We got your PDF sent your way, so that's fixed up, but you appear to be the latest victim of a strange UK glitch that happens some of the time with customers in the UK. I don't know why it happens, and more weirdly why it only happens with SOME UK customers; I mean, if it's a glitch, shouldn't it always happen with the UK?

What I've done for others when this happens and would be happy to do for you or anyone else in the UK that runs into a problem like this, is just have you email me directly at makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.com and we can do a direct Paypal transaction. You tell me what you want and Paypal the relevant amount to that email, and I send you the download links through Dropbox and/or DrivethruRPG's system (or the print product, if that's what you'd like to order).

Sorry for the inconvenience, but hey, it gives us a chance to show off our Legendary customer service! :)

Didn't you get as a DriveThru download? I know all of my kickstarters came from there, so pdfs are in my DriveThru library.
No, it was distributed via DropBox.
The files are now loaded to DrivethruRPG in preparation for wide release (they're closed to the general public until Friday), so if anybody who has already gotten their backer copies via Dropbox would like to have your PDF resent to you via DrivethruRPG let me know at makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.com and we'll be happy to drop it to you via that route so you've got an extra backup.
That is incerdibly generous. Offer accepted and email sent. Maybe I need to give Legendary Games another look due to awesome customer service.

Happy to be of assistance. Our customer service is just as Legendary as our products! :)

You may find that our Metal Gods and Legendary Planet lines play very nicely with the theme and style of Aethera. Two great tastes that taste great together!

The secret is out - Encounter Table Publishing and Legendary Games join forces to present the amazing AETHERA CAMPAIGN SETTING!

Robert Brookes and I have worked together on a number of products before and have developed a great working relationship, and the more we talked about this project and others the more it made sense to team up. If you love mixing your sci-fi and fantasy, wish a dose of cosmic horror, magical fantasy, and mystical noir, we are the companies for you!

For Pathfinder, Starfinder, Starjammer, Legendary Planet, or any kind of campaign, you've gotta check it out. And the price is so, so right- just $29.99 for almost 600 PAGES of sheer, unmitigated awesomeness. You also can preorder the print volume or print/PDF bundle, which we hope to have ready in time for GenCon in August.

You can get it next Friday in wide release, but right now, the ONLY place you can get it is the Legendary Games webstore. Grab your copy today!

The wait is over, and now the tale can be told...

Welcome to the worlds of AETHERA, brought to you by Encounter Table Publishing and Legendary Games!

This magnificent and MASSIVE (nearly 600 pages) interplanetary adventure setting combines hard sci-fi, cosmic horror, magical fantasy, alien invasions, and mystical noir in a unique blend that suits all manner of genre-crossing campaigns. It’s a spectacular setting to use on its own with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules, as a more sci-fi-heavy companion to the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, or as a more magical setting for the upcoming Starfinder Roleplaying Game.

These two great companies have teamed up to bring you the very best in beautiful, richly detailed, expertly crafted, intricately designed, and most of all flat-out fun sci-fi/fantasy products possible for your game. Many Legendary Games and Encounter Table Publishing authors and artists have worked together individually, but with a shared commitment to creating gaming supplements of unsurpassed quality, it is a joy and a delight to join forces on this project and many more going forward. You will not believe what Robert Brookes and I are cooking up for next year, but that's another story. This awesome alliance begins RIGHT NOW with an exclusive one-week presale of the Aethera Campaign Setting right here at the Legendary Games webstore before it goes into wide release next Friday!

If you backed the Kickstarter for this incredible book, you know how amazing it is. If you didn't... now's your chance to get a piece of the interstellar action! One week only at the Legendary Games webstore, and then available everywhere Pathfinder products are sold!

You can get all the details at the link right here!

This week's new release brings you a trove of treasures for urban and intrigue campaigns with the terrific Treasury of the City by Jason Nelson, Victoria Jackzo, and Loren Sieg (Golly she's great - and we'll fix the typo on the cover mock on the LG homepage)!

Check out the latest right here, or read on!

This Friday you can pick up three dozen magnificent magic items for your urban campaigns, so we thought we'd get you a quick preview of what you can expect within!

The city is a dangerous place, and adventurers daring to brave the urban jungle need the right equipment! Treasury of the City brings you three dozen brand-new magic items perfect for every part of the city, from the back alleys, sewers, and slums, to the halls of power and the smoke-filled back rooms where power brokers rule from the shadows. You’ll find weapons and combat accessories like the toxic scabbard and forgetful sap alongside protective devices like cryptwarden’s plate and the roofrunner’s buckler. Delvers into the dank byways beneath the city will love ratty robes and the sewer suit, while those accustomed to high places will love the lecturer’s staff, senator’s stole, and the scale of endless bureaucracy! Criminals will find handy devices like pilferer’s gloves and the cheater’s hat, while officers of the law wield the mark of the authority, nightwatch crossbow, and the inspector’s bullhorn to bring them to justice! Wherever your heroes venture in adventures of urban intrigue, they’ll find the perfect tools to take down treacherous advisers and bring justice to the streets.

This is not Victoria's first rodeo with LG, of course, and we want to give her a shout-out for her latest 5-star review from Endzeitgeist by making her marvelous Mythic Monsters: Slavic our TWO$DAY Product of the Week! If you love the myths and legends of Eastern Europe, you are going to love dropping these monsters into your campaign with the full force of that fabulous and fatal folklore, with a dozen and one menacing monsters for just $2!

Of course, all this Slavic goodness is a great fit with last Friday's release of Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches, and we're delighted by the response to Alex Riggs' awesome accessory on those sinister sisters! Last Friday we also announced our upcoming Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium Kickstarter project, and we are psyched to bring this to you. We are fine-tuning the structure of the project now, but we are looking forward to a fitting date for launch of April 1st! No, not because it's April Fool's and we're foolish to even try something like this, but because it marks four years to day from the release of the first PDF included in this compendium, the fantastic barbarian adventure Cold Mountain, and for that matter the 6th anniversary of Legendary Games as a company! While our first product wouldn't be released until a few months later, it was April 1st of 2011 when Clark Peterson, Jason Nelson, Neil Spicer, Clinton J. Boomer, and Greg Vaughan sealed the deal to bring LG to life. We can't think of a better day to launch this project, so mark your calendars and get ready to go into the woods on Saturday, April 1st!

We'll have more previews coming soon, but we've had fans asking "Are you going to do a Far East/Pirate/etc. Compendium" and "When are you doing the NEXT one?" The short answer is, YES, we are doing other compendiums! We looked into whether it would make sense to do a single massive project of multiple compendiums for different campaigns, but the route we chose to go was to do each one separately. That way each campaign can be focused, accessible, and most importantly ready to set up and turn around very quickly. Once each compendium Kickstarter ends, we'll finalize any bonus content and get things coming your way! We're still working on the order of which compendiums we'll do when, but rest assured that more are on the way!

Last but not least, we are pleased to continue our incredible 60 BOOKS, 30 BUCKS Pathfinder MEGA-BUNDLE at Paizo.com! The same spectacular savings – over 90% off on 60 Pathfinder PDFs totaling 1,487 pages and with a regular sale price of $337! You also can get this great bundle right here at the Legendary Games webstore all month long.

Agreed. That's a lot of the point of the whole mythic monsters series, but especially this sub-series focused on real-world mythology: to bring more of that folkloric flavor to what the monsters can do at the table.

But wait, didn't we tell you wicked witches were coming? They are indeed - NEXT week! But that doesn't mean we can't serve up a delicious preview for what you'll find within!

Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches brings you an incredible resource for the best of the worst when it comes to sinister spellcasters for your Pathfinder Roleplaying Game campaign. Within you'll find a ton of great new options for witches, including archetypes like the consort of fiends, curio collector, and shadow sister, along with the terrifying hag matron prestige class, complete with special abilities unique to each type of hag. Wicked witches can swear oaths to their eldritch patrons, gaining power through their devotion to natural forces like frost and waves, or to corrupt principles from lies and destruction to hedonism and madness! You'll also find new hexes like the haruspex and skull sentinel and witch-themed magic items like the broom of chastisement and toxic cauldron. Finally, for witches who want to start play with an otherworldly familiar, you'll find over a dozen lesser versions of exotic familiars like quasits, imps, rakshasas, and shadow drakes! Whether you are designing epic villains as a GM, or playing a character who taps into the dark side of arcane magic, Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches by Alex Riggs is a 36-page treasure trove of material to help Make Your Game Legendary!

Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches will go live next Friday, ready to chill your hearts and crush your souls if you dare try to resist the urge to buy it!

No one at Paizo has officially responded to the Cleanse and Surmount Affliction Spells, Samurai ability Samurai Resolve, Presitence Inquisition ability Inner Strength and various other abilities that are supposed to remove or suppress afflictions like Nauseated, Sickened or Paralyzed not working because those same conditions prevent the character from using the abilities that supposedly remove or suppress these conditions.

What is your take on the issue?

Links for you in case you are not familiar with it.

http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2miwv?How-does-one-use-Surmount-Affliction#1

http://rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/51155/can-you-use-swift-or-free-acti ons-whilst-nauseated

http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2tyti?Can-you-do-do-a-swift-action-as-a-move-ac tion#20

Certainly my opinions on rules are in no way official, but in reverse order:

1. No, you can't do a swift action as a move action. The rules say what they do and do what they say. 4E allowed you to "trade down" actions "standard > move > minor" but 3rd Edition and its offshoots, including Pathfinder do not.

2. You can make an argument either way on free actions. Nauseated says "The only action such a character can take is a single move action per turn." Free actions say, "You can perform one or more free actions while taking another action normally."

My take is that you can take one free action while taking your move action while nauseated. If you argued that being nauseated meant you were not taking your move action "normally" then you wouldn't allow it, but it's ambiguous.

For swift actions, my reading says no dice. They are similar in some ways to free actions, but they aren't free actions, and in fact specifically says that it "represents a larger expenditure of effort and energy than a free action." It's not a free action, so it doesn't fall under the rule of taking it while taking another action normally; ergo, you get one move action and can't add a swift (or immediate) action before or after it.

3. Surmount affliction works fine for everything except dazed and paralyzed. At that point, it's a judgment call.

If you follow the rule that specific trumps general, and the spell says that you CAN use it to suppress those conditions, then you can, even though the general rule is that those conditions normally prevent you from taking actions (including the standard action to cast the spell).

On the other hand, if your opinion is that the inclusion of those conditions is a mistake, then you should just strike out those two conditions and use the spell as is for other conditions.

The same applies for resolve and other similar abilities.

But play it the way you like; I was just at Paizo today and I can assure you that they will be quite okay with however you roll with it! If you're playing PFS, you'll have to wait for something official, as I certainly can't give that.

My feeling on hybrid classes is that they really have to play with some kind of schtick all their own. Simple mash-ups of two base classes don't really interest me. They have a place in the game, in the same way that bags of holding, +1 longswords, and rings of protection have a place in the game, but if I'm going to go to the trouble of creating a new melded class I want it to do something fun and interesting that other classes don't, and to have a theme that it fits all the way through.

Needless to say, I think this class delivers that!

MYTHIC MONDAY is turning Japanese, and TWO$DAY comes early!

Unlike the tragic 80s pop song, though, Mythic Monsters: Japan is AWESOME, featuring a dozen and one marvelous mythic monsters drawn from the myths and legends of ancient Japan from cunning shapechangers and seductive ghosts to charming beast-folk and terrifying skeletal avatars of death, PLUS five magnificent mythic magic items! You can grab the latest installment in the epic Mythic Monsters series by Mike Welham, Loren Sieg, and Jason Nelson at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon!

Speaking of gaming products inspired by the myths and legends of Earth, we are also happy to present a new TWO$DAY product of the week, though this one is best suited for the dusty deserts and ancient monoliths of Egypt and its fantasy equivalents. In celebration of the latest 5-star seal of approval for Legendary Games, we are pleased to present Egyptian Heroes this week at 70% off - just $2 for 8 incredibly detailed and lavishly illustrated pregenerated characters to use as allies, contacts, rivals, or even new recruits to an adventuring party of delving into the dusty tombs of long-fallen civilizations! Grab it today!

We have already gotten March off to a magnificent start with great new products like our first One Player Adventure, Orphans of the Hanged Man, and the latest fey supplement for 5E with Faerie Mysteries, and our Kickstarter backers are even more excited because today they have received the latest chapter of the star-spanning saga of Legendary Planet with Dead Vault Descent for Pathfinder, with the 5E version heading to layout next weekend!

Even more exciting stuff is coming on a fast train, with Legendary Kineticists II and Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches fighting it out in a celebrity death match to see who gets to come out this Friday and who has to wait until next week. We'll have previews for both books coming your way soon, but... OWW, HEY STOP THA...

Trueno here. We're not waiting. Preview now.

Legendary Kineticists II unleashes the true potential of the kineticist class with a vast array of new kinetic options, starting with 8 amazing archetypes for both kineticists, like the onslaught blaster and telekinetic bladeshifter, as well as for other classes like the planar custodian druid and order of the scion cavalier. You'll also find dozens of new infusions, wild talents, and kinetic feats and spells to enhance your kineticists of every specialty. In addition, you can expand the bounds of kinetics like never before with the kinetic mystic prestige class, variant multiclassing for kineticists, and a complete 20-level rebuild of the core kinetic class, the legendary kineticist! On top of everything else, you will also find Trueno, herald of the White Sky, a richly detailed kineticist master complete with combat tactics and a compelling history and personality, to show how these powers play at the table in a ready-to-use character you can drop right into an existing game or even build an entire campaign around. Add Legendary Kineticists II to your Pathfinder campaign today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Witches can wait. Trueno out!

... okay, well in that case let the previews start now. I have a bad feeling what the witches are going to do for an encore, but I think hexes will be involved somewhere.

Last but not least, we are pleased to continue our incredible 60 BOOKS, 30 BUCKS Pathfinder MEGA-BUNDLE at Paizo.com! The same spectacular savings - over 90% off on 60 Pathfinder PDFs totaling 1,487 pages and with a regular sale price of $337!

I just bought this one and read it, and oh how I love Animal Aspect, as well as so many of those Dooms. I'd love to see if some could be used as oracle curses.

One question: under 'Dooms' it mentions something called the 'Cursed' feat, but it doesn't get described anywhere in the product. Was this an oversight or has it already been described elsewhere? Admittedly I suspect it boils down to 'you can take one Doom and have it improve as you rise in level the same as a Doomguard', which I would love.

Still and all, some clarification would be improved.

And let me say too that anyone who likes the doomed heroes of Greek or Norse myth will probably love this wholeheartedly.

I think that's an editing artifact; there was going to be a Cursed feat but it ended up getting cut.

Though something like it might be surfacing in another book... :)

More seriously, read any good books lately? I'm currently reading the Tarkin novel. And really looking forward to the Thrawn novel.

My reading kind of goes in fits and starts. The most recent book I finished was the first Deryni book by Katherine Kurtz. I'd always heard about the saga being a classic but had never read it. Picked them up a few years ago at Powell's in Portland and read the first one last year. It was... okay. I have the next two (the original trilogy) but haven't been super-motivated to read them.

I also finished A Fire On the Deep by Vernor Vinge not that long ago. It was pretty good and a very different style of sci-fi.

I read with my 12-year-old every night - he still likes bedtime stories. :)

We are currently reading The Throne of Fire, book 2 in the Kane Chronicles, which are basically the Egyptian mythology equivalent of the better-known Percy Jackson novels. The author has also done a more recent series that plays with Norse mythology in a similar way. Hey, if your schtick works, keep doing it Rick Riordan. :)

I picked up Ruled Brittania by Harry Turtledove at a used bookstore a few months ago and it's here on my desk waiting for me to start reading it.

Do you ever get to go to a convention as a fan?

I guess the first couple of PaizoCons I've been to were as a fan. I did run games (including some on behalf of Paizo staff), but since we started doing print books in 2013 I've always spent a fair bit of time at cons slinging product.

My first GenCon in 2014 I also went as a fan (I think I did one seminar) before doing the booth insanity the last two years.

Also, do you ever get invites to be a Guest of Honor at a convention?

What are the top 3 superhero style movies that you are looking forward to this year? For me it's - Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Wonder Woman and Justice League.

1. Thor: Ragnarok

2. Guardians of the Galaxy 2
3. Probably Wonder Woman/tossup with Logan (the first trailer with Johnny Cash singing "Hurt" was an instant buy-in as a very different kind of supers movie)

Btw, if you haven't seen it yet, the LEGO Batman movie is awesome.

We've also started working on a new mythic path specifically for occult characters, tentatively called Path of the Esoteric.

If you're looking to expand the breadth and depth of the mass combat rules, especially making them less swingy and with more interesting tactical options, you might check out Ultimate Battle and Ultimate War from Legendary Games to see if they give you more of what you want to see.

HOLY COW this is an awesome adventure to read-through!

I... I want to play this so bad...

In his heyday, The Hanged Man would comment, "Patience, young nimble-fingers! Timing is all!"

Thanks for the enthusiasm, Tacticslion! I think the saying that writers write the adventures they want to play comepetely shines through in this one for me. The cool thing about the playtest though, was I had just as much fun as a GM. These one-player stories really grab you from both sides of the table.

Even with your busy schedule above, I bet you won't have to wait too long - after all - it is only two schedules you need to manage to get a game night in, and The Hanged Man's Orphans breaks into pretty easily digestible chunks, so playing for an hour or so before a regular session might work.

Enjoy!

Very true - just having two people does make it a lot easier to arrange a little time, and because the action goes a lot faster with just two people it's easier to find break-points where no one is left hanging waiting until next session if you have to stop.

Any plans for a 5E version?

Is it available via POD?

It is available via POD at the Legendary Games webstore as well as DrivethruRPG, Open Gaming, Store, and Amazon.

As for a 5E version, the tentative answer is yes, but we want to see what the response is on the PF version. I suspect we'll go ahead and convert it anyway so we can test the 5E market's appetite for single-player adventures.

Some of the files provided are hl files, which I can't seem to open on my mac. My google fu is weak, but it seems that I need some other application to open them. It's not a big problem because I think the hl files are mostly duplicates of the pdfs, but can anyone more tech savvy than me explain how to access these files?
I assume those are Hero Lab files, that you would need Hero Lab to open, but I'm just guessing.

There might be a few HeroLab files mixed in there, and if so you'd need to have HeroLab to open them. There should be regular PDFs of everything, though!

How much would a hardback of Mythic rewrite rules cost you to make for your Legendary Games label?

A compilation of those rules...asking for a friend.

Do you mean in addition to our existing 3 mythic hardbacks?

Now that Jason has announced Orphans of the Hanged Man, it's time to give some more details.

As you may have guessed, Legendary One on One Adventures are designed for one player and one GM. Sometimes it’s hard to get a group together and most adventures assume at least 4 players so this style of adventure fills that gap.

Heya Matt, this is Joseph Browning, owner of Expeditious Retreat Press and publisher of the One on One Adventures line, of which I just put up #21: The Gloom Over Dunnocksdell today. We've been publishing in that line since 2005 and the One on One Adventures Compendium was the first non-Paizo print product to be solicited for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game in 2009.

I'm concerned about your choice of name for you new adventure path product. Drop me an e-mail and we can discuss things: josephbrowning@gmail.com.

Sincerely,
Joseph Browning
Expeditious Retreat Press

Email sent!

And here's another:

Lunacy
You experience periods of metal instability, especially during stress.

At 1st level, you take a -4 penalty on Will saves and the DC of using Intimidate against you decreases by 8. You do not take numerical penalties from fear (including hit point damage from phantasmal killer or similar effects), though fear effects can still affect your actions, such as causing you to drop held items or flee from combat.

At 5th level, when you fail a Will save, you become confused rather than suffering the normal effects of the original effect. This confusion lasts as long as the consequences of the failed Will save lasts. On a result of "act normally", you behave as the effect you failed to save against dictates. You do not become confused if you choose to voluntarily give up your saving throw.

At 10th level, any penalty you would take from a mind-affecting effect is reversed into a bonus. This replaces the 1st-level ability to ignore penalties from fear; fear now gives you a bonus. In addition, you can reroll the result of confusion effects you are suffering from, but must accept the second result even if it is worse. In addition, if you confirm a critical hit against a creature while you are confused, the target must succeed on a Will save or be affected as moonstruckAPG (caster level equal to your curse level).

At 15th level, when you are confused because of a failed Will save, you decide what you do on a result of "act normally." You become immune to confusion, insanity, moonstruckAPG, the horrific appearance of qlippothsB2, the alien presence of outer dragonsB4, the unspeakable presence of great old onesB4, or any effect that causes insanity, madness, or random actions.

Here's a nice example:

Infested
Your body is full of writhing parasites, which occasionally burst forth through your skin, mouth, and eyes. You tend to inspire repulsion, pity, and disgust in others.

At 1st level, you take a -4 penalty on Charisma checks and Charisma-based skill checks made when interacting with living creatures other than oozes and vermin. However, you can influence vermin as if they were animals and you had the wild empathy class feature of a druid whose level equals your doomguard level.

You cannot be further infested by other parasites, being immune to parasitic infestations, implantation of eggs or organisms (which are devoured by your own internal parasites), or bleed damage or blood drain by Small or smaller creatures. You cannot be harmed by rot grubsGMG, and you take half damage from swarms and are immune to the distraction ability of swarms.

At 5th level, you are immune to the sickened condition, and you can use vomit swarmAPG as a spell-like ability once per day, plus one additional time per day for every 5 levels after 5th.

At 10th level, you are immune to disease (including supernatural diseases and disease-like curse effects like lycanthropy and mummy rot) and the nauseated condition.

At 15th level, you gain immunity to poison, and you can use your vomit swarm spell-like ability to summon a rot grub swarmB3 (which behaves as the swarm normally summoned by the spell) or 1d4+1 giant rot grubsB3 (which must appear adjacent to your space but afterwards can move independently, as if they were creatures summoned by summon nature's ally).

No, that sounds wrong.

I've been looking forward to Ultimate Armies since it was first announced and I can't wait to see it. I'm excited for Ultimate Strongholds because it's something I can get my own design teeth into. I'm excited for Ultimate Armies as a fan.

If only there were someone to tell us about Ultimate Armies...

*cough*

;-)

The key elements, in their various stages of completion thus far, are:

1. The troop template and rules for converting individual creatures to troops to armies.

2. A bestiary of ready-made troops

3. A mercenary group generator.

4. There's at least one other section that I'm not remembering off the top of my head.

It might be Birthright-style battlefield magic. Or mythic mass combat. Or both. :)
