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'd like the see the Ultimate series dip a bit more into the Downtime rules.. new rooms, teams, buildings, and organizations seem like an area ripe for expansion.

The Hell's Rebels AP gave the Rebellion organization a means to be active ... ways for organizations to interact (attack and defend) would be interesting. This may be more fertile ground after Ultimate Intrigue ships and we see what is in it... if noble houses are not presented in some product similar to Guilds and Schools in Inner Sea Combat and Inner Sea Magic, perhaps that's another area to look at.

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.

Check out the latest previews for Legendary Games!

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!

CR 1/MR 1 - Mythic xtabay

CR 4/MR 1 - Mythic chupacabra

CR 5/MR 2 - Mythic amphiptere

CR 5/MR 2 - Mythic zuvembie

CR 6/MR 2 - Mythic saguaroi

CR 7/MR 3 - Mythic ahuizotl

CR 11/MR 4 - Mythic giant mantis shrimp

CR 12/MR 5 - Mythic peuchen

CR 16/MR 6 - Mythic cherufe

CR 21/MR 8 - Mythic lusca

CR 21/MR 8 - Mythic tunche

CR 23/MR 9 - Mythic tzitzimitl

Last but not least, this book will introduce the dreaded flayer of skins, the all-new xipe totec! 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?

Woo, glad to hear it! If you like bad guy classes, I'd also encourage you to take a look at our "Legendary Villains" series, currently including Dark Druids and Antipaladins (by Clinton Boomer and I) and Evil Clerics (by Jenny Jarzabski and I), and watch out for the next ones in that series. We've already announced Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches (by Jenny Jarzabski again), but could I tempt you with... Legendary Villains: Assassins?

Glad you are loving Winter Heroes! Meanwhile...

Our very first Mythic Monsters product, released shortly after the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Mythic Adventures rulebook itself had debuted, was the legendary Mythic Monsters: Demons! The only complaint we ever had about that book (which you can pick up this week for just 2 bucks as our TWO$DAY product of the week!) was that it just didn't have enough demons in it. The time to rectify that situation has come, with Mythic Monsters 35: Demons Too!

Our initial release covered almost all of the classic demons, but there are oh so many more within. Now, thanks to the combined talents of Jason Nelson, Alistair J. Rigg, Steven T. Helt, Todd Stewart, Jim Groves, and Nic Logue, we are proud to present the 35th installment in our magnificent Mythic Monsters series debuting this Friday in wide release. What lies within? BEWARE!

Mythic Monsters: Demons Too brings you an awesome array of abyssal adversaries ready to bring pain, torment, destruction, and woe upon the world and your heroes. These dastardly demons range from CR 3 to 23, including some of the lowliest of demonkind, the disgusting dretch and the half-breed cambion, as well as the savage footsoldiers of the Abyssal armies, the spiteful schir with their hewing halberds and the goat-horned brimoraks with their fiery hooves and burning blades. Truly hideous horrors lurk in the foul places of the Abyss, from the filthy and pestilential gibrileth to the foul and bestial kithangian, or even the lowly and loathsome abrikandilu who seek nothing but the wrecking of all things beauteous and fair. The seductively sinister coloxus conceals its insidiously insectile nature beneath a cloak of possession, while the deadly derakni revels in the company of the vilest vermin of the nether pits. The mightiest fiends are agents of death as often for their own kind as for others, as the prowling shemhazian preys upon all things weaker than itself while the subtle seraptis cultivates despair like a crop of death, leaving suicide and hopelessness in its wake, as does the warmongering gallu, lord of bloody battle. As if a dozen existing monsters were not enough, the brand-new skrekalga brings the spirit of absolute obsession and corruption to all it encounters. Add to that a delightfully disturbing piece of demonic fiction by Todd Stewart and you'll be ready to unleash truly exquisite evil upon your heroes.

We'd like to thank everyone who has taken the time to write a review for any LG product, and today we'd like to thank Endzeitgeist for his rave review on this book! You can read Endzeitgeist's full review here on his site (and I'm sure he'll post it here at some point), but here are his conclusions:

Matt Goodall and Jason Nelson’s Legendary Rogue, at first glance, looked like it was too good to be true; and since most books like this are just that, I went on to test the living hell out of this book. Okay, let me make this abundantly clear: No matter the power-level of your campaign, no matter how much you may like the Unchained Rogue, the Glory Rogue or the like – YOU NEED THIS. I didn’t realize how much I needed this book until I actually read it. Beyond taking care and fixing several trap options and retaining their feasibility over the levels, beyond a power-upgrade that was sorely required, the legendary rogue as presented herein is still as rogue-y as it can be – and so much more!

Let me state this loudly and clearly: The Legendary Rogue is the class the Unchained Rogue should imho have been. It is now my default rogue class, particularly since it cleaned up those annoying trap options, ability discrepancies etc. – this is a labor of love, where, with a fine-toothed comb and deliberate care, mechanics were streamlined to actually play better with PFRPG’s official other classes. Oh, and if you dislike any component of this book, its supreme versatility does allow you to cherry-pick your preferred option to customize the respective tricks. Now, and this is where the book goes the extra, second extra mile, it also does something only very few crunch books do: It explains its design-rationales in easy to grasp ways for the respective GMs and players perusing this book – so if a particular issue addressed is not one for you, you’ll have the pros and cons weighed and listed so you can decide for yourself. Modularity-wise, this is up there with Spheres of Power or the Martial Arts Guidebook in the ways in which its respective options can be used or discarded – and it may even surpass them.

This book, in short, provides the player-driven, versatile rogue I’ve always been wanting since the inception of 3.0, the class I always longed for, but never got. Legendary Rogue is, without any hyperbole, a truly astonishing, downright brilliant piece of work and will be the standard by which I henceforth measure class-fix-style pdfs. It is simply ridiculously good and a shining example of what a crunch can do; it thus receives 5 stars + seal of approval, nomination for my Top Ten of 2015 and the EZG Essential tag – if it also covered trap-rules and a fix for the Stealth-skill, it would completely replace my previously favorite rogue fix, Rogue Glory, completely; as it stands, Legendary Rogues is a true must-own book for anyone who likes playing rogues and felt that the class fell flat of what it should be able to do, for everyone who wants more customization, options, flair – this is for you and worth every cent of its asking price a hundredfold.

You can pick up Legendary Rogues right here on Paizo, at the Legendary Games webstore or wherever fine Pathfinder products are sold!

Good news! I've been looking forward to Ultimate Armies and Royal Tournaments for a LONG time. Just what is that 'Way of the Blade' book, though?

It is similar to The Way of Ki and Meditations of the Imperial Mystics, but more aimed towards weapon-users.

...Let me tell you a story.

It was the winter of 1980. I was ten years old, and we were in the middle of a cross-country move from Colorado to central-coast California. We stopped in Los Angeles to spend the night at the house of a friend of my parents'. No kids, so I was left to try to amuse myself while they talked politics and so forth. TV time, let's see what's airing in this strange new land?

Now, I was a precocious (and fast) reader, having digested such things as Mark Twain's Connecticut Yankee when I was six or seven. I liked television, but there was only rarely anything I considered quality on. Probably the best thing I'd ever seen to that point was the 1970s Tarzan cartoon -- you know, the only visual adaptation ever to be reasonably faithful to the books? Some of Paul Dini's early work? But I digress.

So, flipping through new channels, I stumbled upon something different.

It was a science fiction cartoon in progress. An alien fleet was laying siege to future Earth, and winning handily. Their city-flagship had just destroyed the Moon simply to make a point. The world government was surrendering. Only one Earth starship was still fighting, a weird but awesome thing that looked like an old naval battleship, and most of her crew had evacuated while the young captain, critically injured, was nonetheless boarding the ship of an old enemy allied to the new invaders. (He was bandaged and bleeding. In a cartoon.) The hero, a man with the Star Wars-esque name of Derek Wildstar, confronted his old foe, staring him down at gunpoint... only to collapse from his injuries, as a young lady evidently his romantic interest rushed to his side.

And the enemy, in a moment of nobility and regret, gave them the secret to the invaders' weakness and let them go.

Which is about when I had to be put to bed.

I was enraptured. I was stunned. I had never seen anything this good on television, animated or live. It fried my ten-year-old mind.

AND I HAD NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS CALLED! Couldn't...

Some of the apparent slowdown is that we are not currently producing a weekly mini-product, so there's a little less in the constant flow like that... though we do have a new Mythic Monday product we are cooking up right now. I don't know if it will be every week, but pretty frequent.

Looking back, though, we released 6 new products in October, 6 more in November, and 7 in December, so I think our pace has been pretty consistent. And we just released our first product of 2016, too!

Fear not, the LG-train continues to roll!

There are small modules at the back of RC - have you seen them? Beyond those: Heart of the Razor and Dead Man's Chest by Frog God Games; Legendary Games' Islands of Plunder-series (plus Cutthroats & Crews and Pirate Codex for NPC-stats) are what immediately comes to mind. (Reviewed all of them.)

If you're willing to do conversion work/statblocks, 13th Age's "The Strangling Sea" is a superb module that fits tone-wise with RC (reviewed that one as well).

If you need more, drop me a line.

- A 2nd-level overland caravan adventure featuring both town and wilderness scenarios, Road to Destiny

- A 4th-level pirate adventure featuring cunning smugglers and a sinister sea witch, the brand-new Islands of Plunder: Spices and Flesh, which is the first in a four-part series of pirate adventures going up to 9th level

- A 6th-level journey into the nightmare realm of a coven of witches, The Baleful Coven

- Beasts of Legend: Coldwood Codex, a short bestiary of 10 brand-new 5E monsters native to the frozen forests of the pitiless north, with detailed ecologies and full-page art

- The free Hypercorps 2099 5E primer, a high-tech cyber-supers setting funded by a Kickstarter earlier this year

- Two products (so far) from the Legendary Planet saga, also funded by our highly successful Kickstarter this spring:

The Legendary Planet Player's Guide, featuring four new playable PC races, specialized "campaign traits" for tying your character to the themes of the overall saga, and information on classes, religion, and more.

The prequel adventure for 1st/2nd-level characters, The Assimilation Strain, a horror-themed investigation of a small town gone mad by the sinister machinations of intruders from beyond the stars.

The next adventure in the series, To Worlds Unknown, has already gone out to backers and will go on sale to the general public as soon as the following adventure is completed.

Legendary Games, expect a review from me sometime in the next few days for The Way of Ki.

Interestingly, I was already considering buying the Far East Campaign Compendium first chance I got, so this will be a good way of getting a taste of what such would offer. If I can, I will actually be trying to get a hardcover of both this and the Gothic Campaign Compendium.

Woohoo! Hope you enjoy it.

There is no hardcover presently available of the Far East Campaign Compendium, as we still have 1 or 2 products we want to do for this line before we close the book on it. I expect that we may run a short Kickstarter to fund production of a hardback compilation for one or more of the Far East, Kingdom-Building, Pirate, and/or Righteous Crusade lines sometime next year, maybe in the spring. It's been on our to-do list for a while, and I'm finally getting some of those "not quite done" products moving on my desk to finish them off.

You can buy a PDF compilation of the Far East Campaign Compendium on our website now, and for customers who've already bought that I'm sure we'll have a special offer during any Kickstarter we run for that purpose.

I hope so too. There are also the Playground Adventures coming out, and I hope we see more early-gamer products for folks. It's an under-served market for the next generation of gamers!

Too late, plus I feel like giving back to you as a publisher. :)

Well, far be it from me to say no!

If you're feeling chilled, cast your mind into the warm sands and dusty ruins of civilizations once great and mighty, and whose secrets still may rule the world! First of all, this week's TWO$DAY product of the week, Tomb Raiders, is available this week for just 2 dollars at the Legendary Games webstore!

But the big news is the avalanche of Egyptian awesomeness that is about to arrive! The first to be coming your way by this Friday will be Mythic Monsters: Egypt, by Jason Nelson, Alex Riggs, Mike D. Welham, and featuring the Legendary debut of Jen Page.

Mythic Monsters: Egypt brings you a dozen and one mythological monsters from the burning sands, verdant rivers, and crumbling ruins of ancient pharaohs. Egyptian myths and legends are some of the oldest in the world and influenced the religious and cultural traditions of many kingdoms and empires that followed. While they sometimes were seen as an ancient, exotic, and even decadent culture by the younger kingdoms, their monuments were so titanic, their artistry and iconography so vivid, and their tales and lore so intricate and often so strange that they enjoyed a sort of dual legendarium. The gods and monsters native to the tales of Egypt were one thing, and one that evolved over dynasties spanning milennia, but on top of their own indigenous stories Egypt became a source for all things mysterious. From the classical Greeks to Lovecraftian horror and beyond, any monster, magic, or mystery became more exotic and esoteric when its roots were traced to Egypt, and the same is true when invoking the tropes of Egypt in a fantasy setting or campaign.

Mythic Monsters: Egypt contains an assortment of amazing adversaries for your heroes, ranging from CR 4 to 17, starting with a squadron of sphinxes to confront your adventuring heroes from the hungry hunting hieracosphinx to the crass but clever criosphinx and the proud and noble androsphinx. Not all Egyptian monsters are adversaries, as honorable characters may find allies in the winged maftet and the wise two-headed uraeus. Others are every inch a menace, from hateful werecrocodiles and sinister sha and sacred sha carrying plagues in their wake to deadly scavenging scarab swarms. Of course, much of the Egyptian legendarium in popular and fantasy culture centers around tombs and ruins, and mummies are far from the only inhabitants of the necropolis, as elemental ahkhats are literally a part of the buildings they guard, while mummified cursed kings and eternally vigilant pharaonic guardians guard their domains with jealous and zealous care. As if a dozen existing monsters were not enough, the vicious corpse-eating ammuts sit in judgment on the dead and the damned. For heroes that want to embody that Egyptian vibe for themselves, this book also provides a mythic version of the treasure-hunting archaeologist bard and the legendary living monolith prestige class, anointed with a sacred stone by the ancient sphinx to serve as guardians extraordinaire.

NEXT UP we have not one, not two, but THREE adventures (we might end up combining the final two for a print compilation)!

Beneath the Festered Sun by Pedro Coelho

When a heretical priestess met execution at the hands of conspirators, an immortal consort vowed to carry out her dying curse. Now, after centuries of plotting and waiting, the skies finally align to create the perfect conditions for retribution. Amid the gossip and excitation concerning an extraordinary celestial event, one voice alerts deaf ears to the upcoming danger, only to disappear just as an agonizing vulnerability to daylight strikes the population. Overwhelmed, the authorities call upon reinforcements for the thinned out guard, but can the unexpected heroes stop a vengeance set in motion ages ago? To save the soul of a city, they must confront its present and past and destroy the various iterations of a broken enemy—all before the twilight of the Festered Sun.

Beneath the Festered Sun is an adventure path plug-in designed for 3rd-level characters to complement the Egyptian Themed Adventure Path. This sandbox adventure pitches the PCs against an ancient curse, offering an intriguing interlude to the exploration of the necropolis of Owot-ti. The story takes place right before the PCs venture into the third and final exploration site, in the first module of the Egyptian Themed Adventure Path.

The Hidden Temple of Apep and The Library of Thoth by Alex Riggs.

Each of these adventures explores ancient and secret temples of the old gods of Egypt. The Hidden Temple of Apep is an adventure for characters of 8th to 10th level that centers on the hidden lair of a murderous serpent cult that is terrorizing the lands around, while The Library of Thoth is for 6th-8th level characters and centers on a long-lost repository of ancient wisdom and eldritch magical secrets.

We are waiting for maps and 2 or 3 pieces of art for the above adventures, but writing is complete and they are being edited now. I would expect one of them to be ready by the end of this month and the other two likely ready for action in January.

COMING SOON

We've assigned some new contributors to pick up the torch on Curses and Mythic Monsters: Africa, so work has resumed on those books and I'll keep you abreast of developments as that book gets closer to completion! Come closer into the depths of my tomb and see..

Close... but not quite!

CG half-elf bard (Dawnflower dervish) 8/fighter 4. And yes, still an aquatic half-elf, but without the typical extra (and mostly optional) race swap outs for it, due to the sort of unusual way I ended up being an aquatic half elf...

Shensen had a sort of unusual way to end up being a lot of things. Mostly it involved dying a lot. :)

While I still 100% stand by my Top 10 entries that I posted earlier today ... I have to give special mention to a publisher who has successfully accomplished (over a long time) the overarching objective of Malwing's intent for this whole thread.

That being Legendary Games. I have been so in love with the entire line of Mythic Monster Plug-Ins ... that as soon as I bought & read a given title, I would sit there and think of how much I NEED MORE of this product (i.e. the title of this thread), but with a different race-or-theme of monsters. And time after time, Legendary Games delivered. But it sure was a tease. Because I've gone through this routine with 31 of their Mythic Monster titles ... and I just keep hoping that *ALL* of them will one day show up at the Paizo Superstore in a nice handy hardcover manual. Lol. And that's no disrespect to their partial accomplishment of that wish of mine - the awesome Mythic Monster Manual.

Thanks for the kind words, Crai, but don't stop now! We're up to 33 Mythic Monsters now! And Mythic Monsters: Egypt should be coming your way next week!

I posted a new blog article today listing my top 10 3pp products that need 'more'. Yes these products are good but there's way too much potential to be 'gooder'.

So tell me what you think. What 3pp products made you go "YES!! This is just what I need!" but later had you wanting more? Doesn't matter if you actually need more or you're just greedy and want an expansion. Just that you want more.

And developers; Is there any more coming from any popular product you've had?

Short version of my list:

10. Culinary Magic
9. Book of Martial Action
8. Fantastic Technology
7. Feats of Runic Might
6. Way of Ki
5. Fighter Nuances
4. A Fistful of Denarii
3. ARMR stuff
2. Mystical: Kingdom of Monsters
1. Anachronistic Adventures

There is, in fact, an expansion to The Way of Ki that has been percolating on the back burner for far too long that will likely see the light of day early next year. Tentative title: The Way of the Blade.

Dammit! Due to finances, I couldn't buy anything until this morning, then the sale ticked over just as I went to checkout. Rotten luck!

Still picked up Ultimate Commander and Treasury of the Machine, though =)

Hope you love them. Meanwhile, I happen to know a guy with some pull at LG. If you email at makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.com he might be able to hook you up with something.

Lamashtu is a legit real-world demon from Mesopotamia.

And yeah, there was some first-rate creepiness in there, just like we like it. Make your bad guys BAD!

So, Fenris Wolf is tougher than Cthulhu?

Both are CR 30, as is the mythic tarrasque and the mythic Midgard Serpent.

Of course, "toughness" is a relative term at that power level, so each has places where they're better than the other. Of course, Pathfinder Cthulhu isn't Call of Cthulhu Cthulhu, whose attack is "eats 1d4 investigators per round." :)
