Working on it still. 2016 is still the year of "get all the old projects done or die trying!" I've got one Paizo project I'm working on now, but I'm hoping to have an announcement on Fort Scurvy in time for INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY on September 19th. Now that the school year has started back up, I'll have fewer distractions during the day and it is all about grind, grind, grinding through!!!

Sure, here's a handful:

- Cannibal compulsion does pretty much exactly what it says, inflaming you with bloodlust and a terrible hunger that can only be sated by the flesh of your own kind.

- Dark desolation shrouds you with darkness that follows you around and fills you with despair

- Deadly diminution gradually shrinks you one size category every day; if you're already Fine, you might just shrink into subatomic nothingness!

- Deliquescent flesh causes your bones to melt and your internal structure to collapse, eventually leaving you a quivering mass of jellied meat.

- Famine's feast arouses an unendurable and unquenchable hunger within you, causing you to begin wasting away into emaciated oblivion even as you gorge yourself on anything within reach.

- Fatal strength makes you stronger and stronger, which sounds great except that it does it by leaching away your vitality as you wither into old age and death.

- Hatemonger's halo surrounds the accursed creature with a mantle of infectious hatred, making him highly susceptible to mental control (as long as it is to bring harm to those she hates) but also allowing her to inspire hatred, violence, and murder in the hearts of others.

And that's just seven of the curses in this book!

All of the monsters in this book really came through with a lot of flavor and fun and brought some new things to the table, and was very happy with Loren's debut and working with Jeff as a terrific tag-team.

I also thought the new artwork we got for the book was terrific as well, so a shout-out also goes to Steve Wood (who did the dragon/terra cotta soldiers) and Tanyaporn Sangsnit (who did the nian)!

Kickstarters are funny beasts - some of them take much longer than expected. Others get turned around very quickly. From a KS project that wound up in late April, three months later we are done! Only print approvals and fulfillment remains.

Thanks to Paris Crenshaw, Mike Welham, Matt Goodall, Linda Zayas-Palmer and an army of amazing artists, developers, cartographers, and more, plus a yeoman's job of layout by Rick Kunz, and you've got an amazing 300-page compilation for Pathfinder and 5E going out to backers now! Thanks to all 334 of our backers and everyone else who liked, shared, or otherwise helped spread the word. This will be available to the general public next month, but for right now thanks to everyone who made this happen!

I do like the idea of a vigilante code, and that's something people can certainly volunteer suggestions for iconic types of hero/antihero codes that you'd like to see.

PS - I sent Legendary Rogues and Assassins and Swashbucklers over to Jolly already. If you don't already have them, you should totally check them out!

Legendary Games has produced quite a few class-based products, including Legendary Heroes books focused on paladins, rogues, swashbucklers, kineticists, and hybrid classes, as well as an assortment of villainous expansions focused on Antipaladins, Evil Clerics, and Dark Druids, with more products coming soon for fighters, gunslingers, assassins, and more.

However, we are about to start doing something entirely new. We have had our team working on a new book to be entitled Legendary Vigilantes, and given the many layers of complexity and intrigue around this class we really wanted to play around with some different ideas, and we have decided that for the first time Legendary Games is going to open up a public playtest! Stay tuned here for further information as we work to finalize the manuscript and get it into your hands to try out an awesome array of new and exciting options for vigilantes in your game.

Get ready to Make Your Vigilantes Legendary!

They have I think confirmed they will be working with 3rd party folks, so I assume this will be the case.
The Starfinder team can neither confirm nor deny that they have either confirmed or denied an interest or already existing agreement to host core materials online as a resource document at this time. :P

They've talked to a number of 3PP folks about the possibilities ahead, but there is as yet no confirmation that I have seen about what shape or form a SFRD and/or compatibility license may take and how it will interact with the PRD and PF comp license.

It will indeed. Whether it as a product line will end up being made both PF Compatible and Starfinder-compatible is as yet undetermined, both on the technical rules side and also on the licensing/legal side.

But one way or another, there will most DEFINITELY be Legendary Planet (and the forthcoming Legendary Worlds campaign setting) for Starfinder.

Side note, why should Paizo work on Mythic when you have the LG supplements? No need to recreate the wheel.

Thanks for the kind words. I did have a conversation with someone in blue who expressed appreciation for us picking up the mythic torch and running with it.

I can't recommend Mythic Solutions enough. Since I have the Mythic Heroes Handbook, I don't have it as a standalone (since it's all in the big book), and haven't reviewed it (eep, still need to review MHH!), but the conclusion goes something like this:

Running a mythic game? Buy this. Now.

Ha, thanks!

I should point out that on Paizo you don't need to have purchased a product on this site to review it (you do on DrivethruRPG); if you've got a few quick thoughts you'd like to drop as a review for Mythic Solutions, by all means go for it!

Technically, I think Distant Shores offered some Mythic material. But yeah, I generally agree...overall, Paizo doesn't think - probably rightfully so - that mythic material is very popular, so at most they'll put out a little here and there, not provide a lot of support for new material.

The problem is that mythic stretches and breaks the limits of Pathfinder. Mythic made Wrath of the Righteous a walkthrough for our group, and with one exception, none of us are really the type to munchkin the system. In fact, I suspect that WOTR would have been better played by non-mythic characters.

It is incredibly hard to write for, especially once you get beyond the low level/low rank tiers. And if you try to write challenging encounters for high level mythic characters, you're into lethal rocket tag territory.

I really wanted to like mythic, and parts of it I do. And parts of it I will have fond memories of. I bought every mythic supplement that came out. But I don't know if I'll ever crack open the covers of them again.

For anyone feeling the same way, I invite you to check out Mythic Solutions for just 2.99. In it you'll find 20+ pages that thoroughly explores the challenges of mythic play, addressing specific problematic rules as well as general principles at work in mythic. We combine our own experience writing the original mythic manuscript, the final published version, writing close to 2000 pages of additional mythic material, and a close reading of messageboard commentary on all aspects of the mythic rules to develop a deep understanding of what works and what doesn't. We then boil that down into an analysis of key problem areas with explanations of how and why they are problematic (either by themselves or in combination with other things) and offer a modular set of fixes for each one, ranging from modest adjustments to total bans (foe-biter, I'm looking at you!) that you can use to tailor the level of mythic to suit your tastes. We priced it at just 2.99 because we think everyone who ever liked parts of mythic should get it, as we think it will help you look at mythic again with new eyes.

TL;DR - To quote Endzeitgeist's review, this is "the single most required pdf any group utilizing mythic rules can buy. Period. This book, in fact, is in my opinion just as crucial to mythic gameplay as the core book (and a healthy dose of LG-books) - this is the non-optional fix for the issues."

As QuidEst says above, there is the Transcendentalist mythic path from Rogue Genius. It also includes a 7th path option for Occultists.

Now as far as Mythic for the Vigilante, that's not something we've seen much of yet. Still, though, why would you take anything other than Trickster or maybe Champion for them?

Yea, Really don't like the idea of a 7th path as I would like to stick to the six.

Introducing a new path is really about having a different idea on how a person achieves immortality (whether actual immortality or just living on in story and song) - what makes them famous or amazing or unique. The core six paths cover:

- strong warrior
- tough guy who can survive anything
- arcane caster
- divine caster
- trickster/sneak
- leader/face

Obviously and intentionally those map to the six ability scores. But why or how else could a person become a legendary figure?

In the Mythic Hero's Handbook, we introduced four new mythic paths that explored different themes:

- The Genius, uses their brain to become legendary through cleverness, invention, technology, knowledge, and lore, maybe using arcane magic but maybe not. It is their ability to figure things out and devise the ultimate solution. Consider this Tony Stark.

- The Stranger becomes legendary due to the air of mystery around them. They are the man with no name, the wandering drifter, the one that no one can tame or find but always appears when things look grim. A character more like Batman.

- The Living Saint is someone who becomes like a god himself, negotiating their own place among the powers of the universe. Perhaps someone like the Spectre or the Phantom Stranger.

- The Overmind is more mechanically focused, much like the Archmage or Hierophant but focused on mastering their path to mythic power through Dreamscarred Press psionics. For comics reference, Professor X.

Since then, we've also published the Path of the Reluctant Hero, for those kinds of characters that become legendary almost in spite of themselves. Whether wide-eyed farmboys, retired soldiers, mysterious orphans, and on down the list, they'd much rather stay home yet find themselves in the thick of adventure and through plain good sense, good luck, and undeniable tenacity, they find a way to turn the tide. Think Bilbo Baggins.

We have another path in being written right now by Robert Brookes and David Ross, the title still up in the air but perhaps "Path of the Contract," engaging heroes whose path to mythic power doesn't come from them at all but through their allegiance and binding to greater powers beyond.

We have several more path ideas brewing as well. Mythic Magic: Occult Spells by Amanda Hamon-Kunz and I is already out. Mythic Magic: Intrigue Spells is being written as we speak, by folks who worked on the Ultimate Intrigue hardback.

TL;DR - Check out our Mythic product page here at Paizo. We've produced over 150 products for mythic and counting, including plenty of support for Occult and Intrigue, with more to come (and Horror as well), written by a staff of writers most of whom worked on the original Mythic Adventures hardback and almost all of whom are regular Paizo freelancers, and much of which was produced as part of the Top 100 RPG-related Kickstarters ever.

If you're looking for further releases from Paizo in mythic, I'd agree with the OP that it's not very likely. If you're looking for support for mythic, especially for occult and intrigue, with absolutely Legendary quality? You've got it.

Nope.

Well, that's not actually true- there is some chance of Paizo releasing such a thing, but Mythic didn't do very well. You'll probably have better luck finding a third-part product that handles it well, or just homebrewing something yourself.

I seriously doubt that you have evidence that backs that up.
Nah, I gotta agree with Quid here. I feel like if it had gone well, we'd be seeing it supported in APs more often. Or that it would get random updated content in player books, since it is main series content. The fact that aside from mythic origins and maybe a few misc things we haven't seen new content for it is a pretty big indicator of how well it's done and if we'll see more content from it.

That's pretty much Paizo's MO around new things they have introduced for the most part. You don't see much supplemental material from Paizo for new rules in Ultimate Campaign, Occult Adventures, Ultimate Intrigue, or the Advanced/Ultimate hardbacks EXCEPT for some level of ongoing support for new classes in later releases. Some have gotten more support than others (a lot more new official investigator material than for hunters or shamans).

Hardback plus a couple of supplements when it comes out (an Origins/Realms to tie it to Golarion). A chunk of related monsters in the next Bestiary. Sometimes an AP chapter or full AP. Then they move on.

Books that get more than that are the exception rather than the rule. Mythic actually got a full AP devoted to it.

It seems that as long as you meet the conditions for the use of each feat at the time it becomes relevant, you should be able to use each of them.

If you start out like this (X is you, Y is your ally, Z is the enemy, each dash is 5 feet, and we'll just assume that the ally starts out within your Combat Patrol radius).

A simple diagram might help.

1. Start:
X-Y--Z
------

2. Enemy moves out of a square you threaten with Combat Patrol:
X-Y-Z-
------

3. This provokes an AoO from you, allowing you to use CP to move up to attack the enemy. You choose to move in such a way that you end up adjacent to your ally when you make your AoO:
--Y-Z-
---X--

4. After your AoO is resolved, your enemy keeps moving up to attack your ally:
--YZ--
---X--

5. The enemy is attacking your ally while you are adjacent to your ally, triggering your Bodyguard feat. Assuming you've got another AoO left, you can use Bodyguard to Aid Another your ally's AC.

The fact that you weren't adjacent to your ally at the beginning of the enemy's turn is irrelevant; you are adjacent when the attack happens, which is all that matters for Bodyguard.

We know Paizo has announced they are working with 3PPs for Starfinder. So far:

  • Encounter Table Publishing (Aethera Campaign Setting) has announced they are in early discussions with Paizo's Starfinder development team. I imagine more info will be forethcoming as it develops. (I know developers Robert Brookes and Isabelle Lee already freelance for Paizo.)
  • d20pfsrd.com Publishing has announced its Starjammer project (itself formerly known as Starfinder) will be tentatively released around Gen Con 2016. Because of the project's unique development history, it should be 100% compatible with Paizo's Starfinder.
  • LPJr has announced Starfinder support for its Polymecha line and future 2017 products.
  • Legendary Games hasn't made any announcements (that I could find), but with them already working on Legendary Planet products, and previously on Metal Gods products, it seems inevitable they'll also be on board. And most of their team has freelanced/developed for Paizo before.

What other existing 3PP products would you like to see newly updated to Starfinder? What all new 3PP products would you like to see for it?

Legendary Games has likewise been in conversation with Paizo central at PaizoCon and afterwards about connections between the Legendary Planet AP and the forthcoming Legendary Worlds campaign setting. Thematically, our setting is a bit more on the fantasy side, much more Barsoom than Coruscant, maybe even a little shy of Tatooine. The focus is on the planets themselves and ancient alien civilizations, rather than flying your ship here and there.

Even as a setting where interstellar travel is by gateway rather than spaceship, however, Legendary Worlds can easily fit into the overall Starfinder milieu as either an area beyond the reach of the first wave of FTL exploration, or a generation or two before the secrets of FTL are discovered or revealed.

Whether Legendary Planet and Legendary Worlds are products that are licensed as both Pathfinder and Starfinder or are converted, we'll have to wait and see which option the system best supports.

TL;DR - We already have plans in the works for a number of products and projects related to Starfinder. You will have no shortage of material to make your Starfinder game Legendary!

Out of curiosity: is this volume going to be like Legendary Rogue or Legendary Swashbuckler, in that it presents a revised version of the class?
Nope, this one only contains player options, although if we do an edit run or so, I might actually include some variant rules for how I would alter the class to make it more powerful for those looking for a stronger base class. The options inside will make the class stronger, but it's still the same base class.

The Legendary Heroes line each follows a *general* pattern, but each book will differ somewhat in the details of exactly what goes into it, depending on where the authors really want to go. In some cases, like Rogues and Swashbucklers, there's a whole wash-and-rinse new version of the class. Others, like Paladins focus more tightly on the new applications for the existing abilities of the class or building out variety and improvement via feats, archetypes, spells, magic items, and more. Many, though not all, of the Legendary Heroes and Villains include a prestige class as well.

TL;DR - The Legendary philosophy is to work with great people on projects they're passionate about doing and let them explore all kinds of new ways to do things. Where the author's passion and craft take them, that's where we go.

And it's Legendary. :)
