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. :)

I'm working on it right now! Today I was working on the artillerist battery troop stat block, both for use on ships and on the fort itself. I'm going to do my darndest to at least get it to layout by PaizoCon.

Top 10 Products of 2011:
01. Psionics Unleashed (232 points)
02. Book of the River Nations: Complete Player's Reference for Kingdom Building (106 points)
03. Tome of Horrors Complete (93 points)
04. Advanced Options: Alchemists' Discoveries (71 points)
04. (tie) Tome of Horrors Complete: Unlimited Edition (71 points)
04. (tie) Ultimate Options: New Magus Arcana (71 points)

09. Kobold Quarterly 17 (57 points)
10. Kobold Quarterly 19 (56 points)
10. (tie) Making Craft Work (56 points)

If one wishes to combine Tome of Horrors Complete and Tome of Horrors Complete: Unlimited Edition, then it jumps into 2nd place, at 164 points. Psionics Unleashed opened the year big, owned the top spot for three months, stayed in the top half through May, dwindled away for a couple of months, then came back and brought Psionics Expanded with it.

Top 10 Publishers of 2011:
01. Super Genius Games (1118 points)
02. Open Design (432 points)
03. Dreamscarred Press (312 points)
04. Jon Brazer Enterprises (192 points)
05. Frog God Games (173 points)
06. Pathfinder Paper Minis (161 points)
07. Rite Publishing (143 points)
08. Legendary Games (85 points)
09. Spes Magna Games (56 points)
10. Adamant Entertainment (30 points)

If one wishes to disregard Pathfinder Paper Minis, add TPK Games (28 points) to the list. Louis Porter Jr. Design just misses out (27 points). Super Genius Games isn't as dominant as they were the previous year; other publishers got in the top 10 more often. Legendary Games shows up this year, in late October. It's the first year for TPK Games, too, in late December.

2011, the year of our birth! We only had two products that year, and nothing after that until July 1, 2012. I'll be interested to see 2013, as that is when LG really started to take off in a big way.

I have talked to Tim about it, and while some of the requested retooling is a matter of taste, some changes are likely to be in the works. At the moment, Tim is heads-down on his chapter of the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons, but once he's on the other side of that we may be able to revisit this book and tweak it then.

Maybe someone from Legendary Games can shine some light on this, are there any more products planned in this line, maybe even for other adventure paths?

I was talking to Mark about it just yesterday, and he's obviously been very busy with the day job wearing the blue golem shirt, but we do have at least two more of these planned. So far, while the base Ultimate Relationships product has sold very well, these individual characters haven't done as well, so we always have to balance return on investment of time and effort, so we'll see how the next two do for us and decide from there. Mark may be able to tease the two new characters upcoming; I think they are a lot of fun and will be very interesting and unusual relationship opportunities, and we hope you agree.

What's the CR range of this product?

How easy are these monsters to use outside of RotRL?

The monsters in this issue go from CR 10 to CR 22, and they're easy to use in any campaign. The only thing that connects them directly to RotRL is that is where they were first published (so obviously they appear in those adventures), but otherwise they are good to go anywhere you want to use them.

We are excited to announce that the Trail of the Apprentice Kickstarter for Pathfinder and 5E has doubled its funding goal with almost a week left to go! We're super-excited about brand-new bonus goals, like a set of pregenerated characters for the compilation ready to use right out of the box plus a set of new fiends of the Shadescar Rift by Mike Welham!

Next goal in sight is for a brand-new piece of cover art for the compilation, with more bonus goals besides for number of backers, Facebook likes, and more! We thank each and every one of you for your support, both those of you who have pledged and those of you who have helped spread the word. We hope all of you can keep us spreading the good word about Trail of the Apprentice for a spectacular six-day streak to the finish!

Of course, just because we're running a Kickstarter doesn't mean we aren't still bringing you a ton of great new product! Last week we brought you the Tomes of Ancient Knowledge and Treasury of the Macabre, bringing you a wealth of horror-themed loot for your 5th Edition campaign, and this week we bring you another load of loot, this time from the tombs and treasures of fantasy Egypt with Treasury of the Pharaohs!

With over 30 brand-new magic items themed for deserts and ruins of ancient fallen kingdoms and their mysterious monoliths, this book is sure to please the most dedicated treasure hunters! Pick it up today at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, or DrivethruRPG!

Better still, if you love for your 5th Edition game, next week we should be ready to debut the Treasury of the Kingdom, with nearly 40 new magic items around the theme of faerie forests, wilderness exploration, and the conquest and ruling of your own kingdom!

We also have a special bonus for our customers at the Legendary Games webstore: since I was camping on this past Monday, I wasn't able to post up the latest Mythic Mini devoted to the occult: Mythic Minis 85: Medium, Psychic, and Spiritualist Feats. You can pick it up in wide release wherever fine Pathfinder products are sold on next MYTHIC MONDAY as usual, but you can pick it up right now here at the Legendary Games webstore!

We'll have just one more Mythic Mini in this series before we switch our focus to feats of intrigue and more, celebrating the mystery and machinations unveiled in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Intrigue, starting the first Monday in May!

It's still on my list, but I'm slotting it behind the projects that have been waiting the longest. They've gotten bumped too many times for too many other things that it's my resolution for his year to finally get them out the door.

So yes, you'll definitely still see it, but after things like Royal Tournaments, Fort Scurvy, Ultimate Armies, and Way of the Blade.

To be frank Jason, all your stuff sounds awesome and if I had the money I would buy everything by LG. The problem is that you have too many products! I have enjoyed what I bought by LG and would love to have all your stuff, but it's just too much. I bought the rest of the oriental line since I became a fan of LG with them, but beyond that I can only sigh and wish for the lottery LOL

Aw shucks, thanks for the kind words.

Speaking of Asian, you should be excited that we're hard at work right now on Imperial Intrigue, a set of Asian-themed intrigue-based archetypes! With that Way of the Blade we might be about ready to close the door on the Far East AP Plug-Ins line at last.

Yes!

I was actually working on it last week before leaving on my camping trip. It's been sort of joined at the hip with Ultimate Armies, as working out the finer points of the troop template there plays a role with a lot of the kind of ship crew and castle defender encounters you find in the "inhabited" parts of the fort. I think I've settled on a way to do it systematically that works well enough, so things should be getting unstuck.

It pains me that we weren't able to get it out in February like I hoped, nor March, but I have a dogged determination to get not just this but the other long-languishing pieces up and out the door. My writing time has just not been what I thought it would be so far this year, but this thing IS going to get done. The final art is in and so are the final maps, and now it's just down to me getting the revisions and edits done that I need to do to get it out the door.

Thanks for your patience and for the virtual kick in the butt to keep it moving!

Dare we say... Ultimate Armies?

Got it in one. A section of the book is dedicated to presenting base military units both as units (for mass combat) and as troops (for use in standard adventurer-level tactical combat).

It's been more fiddly but I think I'm close to dialing in a standardized template for the way I want it.

We've been totally slacking on keeping you updated with the latest occult plug-ins for Mythic Monday! Must have been those psychic spirits messing with our heads. In case you missed them, you definitely want to pick up:

Mythic Minis 82: Occult Feats II lets you explore new psychic specialties and mysteries of the mind with 10 new mythic feats from Spirit Sense and Psychic Maestro to Xenoglossy and Shatter Mental Mask!

Mythic Minis 83: Mesmerist Feats brings you 14 fantastic feats to enhance your mesmerist's legerdemain, from Compounded Pain and Intimidating Glance to Excoriating Stare and Greater Mesmerizing Feint!

Mythic Minis 84: Kineticist and Occultist Feats helps you unleash the power within with 12 new mythic feats from Parting Blast and Strong Implement Link to Kinetic Leap and Interweave Composite Blast!

I'm looking forward to Mythic Monsters: Slavic! That one sounds great.

As for new mythic monsters, I'd enjoy seeing both North American Indian monsters done up (especially if we could get ones like the Flying Heads), as well as the critters from American tall tales and legends. Lacking that, dare we hope for Mythic Monsters: Cryptids?

I believe the preliminary list for North America is as follows:

gremlin, hobkins
isitoq
sasquatch
digmaul
snallygaster
wikkawak
amarok
leshy, flytrap
saguaroi
Hodag
delgeth
tupilaq
qallupilluk
devil steed (Jersey devil)
megafauna, uintatherium
ijiraq
adlet
Thunderbird
akhlut
wakandagi
manitou
wendigo

As you'll see, it includes a large number of aboriginal creatures plus a handful of more modern cryptids. The above is the uncut list culled from Bestiary 1-5 (plus one from Rise of the Runelords); exactly which ones we do will depend on which ones the authors are most excited to do.

If there are particular North American monsters we've missed or that you'd especially want to see, give them a shout!

For starters, we are offering a special coupon just for our 5th Edition fans. Enter the coupon code 25FOR5TH at checkout and get 25% off any and every 5E product you are purchasing (excluding Legendary Planet: To Worlds Unknown and Beasts of Legend: Construct Codex)! Wait, Construct Codex?

You can pick up the Construct Codex right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG!

If you're running that adventure saga, you'll also be very interested in next week's upcoming Treasury of the Macabre, featuring 30 brand-new magic items from common trinkets to rare and mighty treasures, all themed for a variety of horror scenarios.

That's not all the treasure coming your way, though! If your adventures bring you into the lands resembling ancient Egypt, you'll also be excited to see next week's Treasury of the Pharaohs, featuring more than 30 more magic items with the flavor of the burning sands, dusty tombs, and ancient kingdoms of the desert and river.

Finally, if you are looking for an introductory adventure to help bring in new gamers to the hobby, especially on the younger side, you should be very intrigued by the faerie hijinks and mysterious happenings they'll find in Legendary Beginnings: Into the Feyweald, an introductory adventure for 1st level characters. Even better, you have three weeks left to check out the Trail of the Apprentice Kickstarter, a complete introductory adventure saga going from 1st to 5th level, which has already funded and is now rolling into a series of terrific bonus goals. Hop on board today and help make the final product even better!

We have even more great 5E product coming later this month and in the months to come, and we hope you'll continue to check us out for supplements for your 5E game, so we can help Make Your Game Legendary!

Will the Occult archetypes be only for Occult classes? A medium barbarian or a psychic oracle would be much needed.

The archetypes in this book are for the six new psychic classes, plus rules for psychic monsters, interfacing with elemental wizards, and more.

We are working on a followup product that addresses occult archetypes for classes outside the book (including some hybrid class concepts); a psychically empowered barbarian is one we've gotten a few times. So that is coming later this year.

Meanwhile, Occult Archetypes hit some a delay in layout and it didn't get into Paizo before approvals closed Friday, so it won't be available here until Monday; however, you can pick it up right now at the Legendary Games webstore!

When we want to bring new gamers into the hobby, whether friends our age or younger players, starter sets and boxes for beginners are great, but not enough. That's why we created Legendary Beginnings, products designed to be tons of fun for experienced gamers but with structure and content suitable for beginners, young and old. Now we'd like to take that to a whole new level with a 5-part series of exciting adventures, suitable for all ages, the Trail of the Apprentice!

A hidden danger threatens the kingdom of Threll and brave adventurers must answer the call! A bold attack and a mysterious theft set a group of heroes on a mission to find the mastermind behind them. They must follow clues, face terrible threats, and uncover ancient secrets to stop a madman before he can unleash a terrible evil upon the world.

The adventure saga includes 5 adventures, which are available in PDF or as a print compilation, for Patfinder, 5th Edition, or both:

The Bandit's Cave for 1st-level characters
The King's Curse for 2nd-level characters
The Thieves' Den for 3rd-level characters
The Oracle's Test for 4th-level characters
The Wizard's Dungeon for 5th-level characters

Each adventure is an action-packed delight, but also include simplified stat blocks and other rules adjustments to keep gameplay fun and fast for new players, with helpful sidebars that provide advice on how to run RPGs for younger gamers so your whole family can Make Your Game Legendary!

Hop on board now with the Trail of the Apprentice right now! The Kickstarter runs for 4 weeks, ending on April 22nd!

Last Friday saw the spectacular debut of the latest installment in the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, with the awesome adventure To Worlds Unknown for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition! That's a big adventure in a star-spanning saga, taking your heroes right out of this world and into the cosmos, and we think you'll love every bit of it! However, everything big had to start small, and that's where Legendary Beginnings come in.

No matter how long you've been playing RPGs, a challenge for gamers is bringing new players into the hobby, whether friends our age or younger players. Starter sets and boxes for beginners are great but not enough, and that's why we started Legendary Beginnings, products designed to be tons of fun for experienced gamers with structure and content suitable for new gamers and younger players. The first adventure, Into the Feyweald, has received very positive feedback, but single adventures are one thing. We had bigger plans in mind, and with that, we invite you to support the Trail of the Apprentice Kickstarter, scheduled to begin next week! You can check out the first big announcement right here or keep on reading!

Trail of the Apprentice is a 5-part series of exciting adventures suitable for all ages, available for 5th Edition and Pathfinder. These modules use simplified stat blocks and other rules adjustments to keep gameplay fun and fast for new players, with helpful sidebars that provide advice on how to run RPGs for younger gamers so your whole family can Make Your Game Legendary!

We are delighted to have a talented creative team on Trail of the Apprentice, including lead author Paris Crenshaw, Mike Welham, Linda Zayas-Palmer, Matt Goodall, Amanda Hamon Kunz, and more lending their talents to this spectacular series of adventures! The first four adventures in the series all have been written and the fifth is well underway, along with bonus material for stretch and the campaign setting of Terralien inspired in part by the American Colonial era. Artwork for the AP is likewise nearly half-done, with the final art and map orders going out this week! When the Kickstarter ends on April 22nd, backers will be able to immediately download the first several adventures, and if all goes well they'll be able to get all five as soon as the project closes, with print versions and the full compilation with bonus material available by the end of May!

NOTE: The creative team for Legendary Beginnings is entirely separate from the crew working on the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, save for some bonus goal contributions from authors that have already completed their work on Legendary Planet. Progress on Legendary Planet will not be delayed by anyone working on Trail of the Apprentice! We are excited to get both adventure series in your hands as soon as possible!

Our regular product cycle continues as well! For 5th Edition, we are looking forward to the release this week of Beasts of Legend: Construct Codex (5E), featuring nearly a dozen creepy constructs themed for horror, from the bloodthirsty manikin to the crowflight carriage and the griever morgech to the living crematory!

Our Pathfinder fans can look forward to this week's release of Occult Archetypes, with almost 20 new character options for their occult characters, and speaking of occult, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention it's also MYTHIC MONDAY, which brings us Mythic Minis 82: Occult Feats II, from Psychic Virtuoso to Xenoglossy and more, which is available NOW at the Legendary Games webstore, Paizo, Open Gaming Store, and DrivethruRPG!

The spectacular saga of Legendary Planet begins in earnest with "To Worlds Unknown," a hundred-page behemoth featuring not only a massive adventure but also new magical and mundane items, a bestiary, an entire planetary pantheon, a gazetteer of the crossroads world of Argosa, and the first in a 7-part short story series by award-winning author Chris A. Jackson. Salutes go out to author Jim Groves, and contributing authors Thurston Hillman, Jeff Lee, Jonathan H. Keith, Sean K Reynolds, and Dan Dillon for their fantastic work making this adventure a reality.

This amazing adventure for 2nd to 5th-level characters is available for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition, and you can pick it up in PDF and print wherever fine gaming products are sold.

If you don't already have them, you also can pick up the 1st-level prequel adventure, "The Assimilation Strain," as well as the Legendary Planet Player's Guide featuring four new playable races, special campaign background traits, and more!

In the meantime, for anyone looking to expand on the Kingdom rules, I'd highly recommend Legendary Games'

Ultimate Rulership, Ultimate Battle, & Ultimate War.

But my fellow Pathfinders bring up some good points.

Perhaps put in some class options that specifically interact w/ mass combat - Commanders, Spymasters, Battle-Priests, War-mages, that sort of thing.

But again, I'd want more of the focus to be on the nations & factions and their territorial holdings, defenses, & forces. The Eagle Knights of Andoran, the Dragon-prowed fleets of the Ulfen vikingrs, the Pure Legion of Rahadoum, etc.

How badass would it be to participate in a massive siege of Absalom (on either side)?

Thanks for the shout-out. I had a lot more ideas for expanding the kingdom and mass combat rules after writing that section of Ultimate Campaign, and those supplements add a lot of great information.

As for the OP's request, there will be some of that presented in the long-in-production Ultimate Armies, which I'm HOPING to have done by PaizoCon. It won't be encyclopedic for all of Golarion, but my intention is to include army-style stat blocks for all AP adventures that feature mass combat scenarios. I've got a pretty good list of them, but if anyone would like to shout out mass combat-type scenarios from APs that they'd like to make sure are included, list them here and I'll work to include them. I haven't read some of the newest APs, so if there are scenarios there that might be usefully outlined in mass combat form, shout em out!

(I should point out, of course, that any armies and scenarios we present will have to be euphemistically named, so as to make clear what it is we are talking about without actually using Paizo's protected IP.)

Check out the latest news and updates for the Legendary Planet project right here, including progress on developments with "Planetary Heroes"!
If you're a backer, you can help us decide whether to go ahead and release To Worlds Unknown to everyone!

Another good thing for publishers that have their own webstores, like, say, Legendary Games, is to buy directly from them. That won't help with their Paizo newsletter sales numbers like the OP is referencing, but buying directly from them means they are only losing around 5% in transaction fees rather than 20-35% on PDFs or 30-50% on print.

On PDF vs. print, the profit margin is generally better for publishers on PDF, but at the same time buying print can help publishers clear inventory that they've already bought and paid for, so there's a benefit either way.

For Legendary Games, historically Paizo always has been our biggest sales venue, but the gap between it and DrivethruRPG has shrunk considerably, and last month was actually the first month ever that our revenue from DrivethruRPG exceeded our Paizo revenue. I'm not really sure why the sales lines from those two sites have converged, but it has definitely happened.

We at Legendary Games enjoy the new occult rules for Pathfinder that debuted last year, and we've been trying to help people incorporate occult classes in their games with a full series of Occult Character Codex for each class, and we're working on some other products that are bubbling along in the background, like a new Treasury of the Occult and working occult elements into some of our other products, like creatures with psychic abilities in our Mythic Monsters series.

Speaking of mythic, though, we are about to dive into that pool much more deeply, and that starts tomorrow with the release of Mythic Magic: Occult Spells!

Our latest addition to the mythic options available for Pathfinder RPG is in layout as we speak! We are pleased to announce the Legendary debut of Amanda Hamon Kunz, who teamed up with Jason Nelson and Jonathan H. Keith to bring you a brand new collection of mythic magic that will blow your mind!

Mythic Magic: Occult Spells brings you you 129 all-new mythic spells from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Occult Adventures! While the original mythic rules for Pathfinder included many cherished favorites from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook as well as the other core rules hardback rulebooks and the Mythic Spell Compendium compiled a vast array of mythic spells for your game, new rules for Pathfinder continue to come out and spellcasters have a continual supply of new tricks to try from more recent rulebooks. If you like occult mysteries and psychic magic, this is the book for you as it completes the mythic rules for every spell in Pathfinder Roleplaying Occult Adventures. All of them, from akashic form to withdraw affliction and all spells in between.

Whether you're a true psychic spellcaster or a user of arcane or divine magic who simply dabbles in the world of spirits and psychics, Mythic Magic: Occult Spells contains mythic spells of every level and every kind, from minor spells to the mightiest magics. You will find combat spells like id insinuation, synaptic overload, and explode head right alongside defensive magic like sealed life and tower of iron will, spells to aid your allies like dream voyage and contagious zeal, and utility spells like akashic form, create mindscape, and bilocation! Grab this book today and make the occult Legendary!

As if that weren't enough, next month will also see the triumphant return of our Mythic Minis line, as we bring you mythic versions of every occult and psychic feat, with plans afoot to add to that mythic versions of the class features for each occult class and possibly even a new occult and psychic-themed mythic path to join the just-released Path of the Reluctant Hero!

We have some very other very exciting projects that will be announced in March, so stay tuned for all the latest right here or on our website at makeyourgamelegendary.com!

Quick question. I know it lost in the polls, but are you guys going to stat out the warpwolf pack at some point in the future? It or any other troop subtype monsters would be greatly appreciated.

Secondary question, I've been out of the loop for a while, has Legendary Games put out anything else on troops since the mythic kickstarter?

The answer to both questions is... not yet.

However, there will be a lot on troops in the high-level pirate adventure Fort Scurvy and in Ultimate Armies, both of which I'm working on right now!

Check out a preview for Tarin's Crown right here! The adventure is in layout now and should be available later this week in PDF and print.
