Oh heavens yes! Or maybe heavens isn't the right word. Heavenly Host was the most recent installment in the series, but we have MANY more to come. In fact, I should probably get started on our next Fall Preview!
I didn't see this thread but got a message from Linda Zayas-Palmer yesterday about your issue and checked our PDF copies, and all of the art is displaying properly, with no overlap of art over text.
If you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'd be happy to send you another copy of the PDF to see if perhaps your copy has been corrupted in some way. As Endy suggests, you might also try using a different reader.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and hopefully we can get your issue resolved.
PS - We haven't produced a print version of the book ourselves because, at only 20 pages, the economics of printing a book that small aren't very favorable. However, I'll look into making a print-on-demand version through DrivethruRPG and see if we can make it work.
The Hypercorps 2099 Kickstarter has less than a week to go and we are shamelessly offering FIVE FREE PDFs, all with glowing reviews by Endzeitgeist, including today's release of the sample adventure, A R.I.P.E. Investment!
Speaking of RIPE, the time is now to announce the latest new product line from Legendary Games: OCCULT PLUG-INS! Sure, we're a little early, but we are already proclaiming it OCCULTober! Check out our first product in this line today: Occult Character Codex: Psychics, jam-packed with sample psychics from 1st to 20th level, from good to evil and all points in between, plus advice on running a psychic character! With the Occult Character Codex, you'll have an entire arsenal of psychic characters waiting and ready to blow your players' minds!
Future installments will look more deeply at other occult classes, like Occult Character Codex: Mediums, Occult Character Codex: Spiritualists, and more, but we’re not stopping there. For fans of the mythic rules, we are also working on Mythic Magic: Occult Spells to bring you mythic versions of the entire corpus of psychic magic, as well as mythic feats, classes, and more! We are also developing the Treasury of the Occult, bringing you an array of amazing occult-inspired items that fit delightfully into any adventure dabbling in horror, occultism, or the discovery of esoteric lore!
We are excited to bring you an entire new product line devoted to the occult rules and all the new possibilities they open up, and we hope you’ll enjoy reading and using them as much as we enjoy making them. In the meanwhile, keep your mystic third eye open; more forbidden lore awaits, and these are secrets we were definitely meant to know!
We did make one listing showing which of the monsters from the various softcover Mythic Monsters books made it into the Mythic Monster Manual, but there's not actually a chart showing ALL of the monsters we've made mythic.
Seems like something worth creating for our website. I'll see if I can get somebody going on that...
This week’s TWO$DAY deal brings you a quartet of amazing opportunities for rivalry, ribaldry, and romance with Imperial Relationships!

Any chance for any more of those Ap Npc hero books coming out anytime soon?
Neil has the Egyptian Heroes crew mostly well statted up, but he's been a little busy with the whole Legendary Planet project to actually write up the backgrounds and such.
We do have one or two more that are starting to brew on the back burner, one of which has been teased before (Planetary Heroes, to go with the Legendary Planet AP), and one... will be something new!
Lots of great ideas for Rulership expansion here. I think there is plenty of room to expand things.
To quickly answer the question about Legendary Classes, the next ones in the pipeline are:
Legendary Villains: Evil Clerics by Jenny Jarzabski
First one is off to layout and should be ready for Monday!
One of the advantages to doing these products as singles is that it frees up both individual writers to create specific characters and relationship arcs that really resonate with them, which means we have more potential for variety in creators and in the characers they create. We'll still do combo products when they make sense, for APs that have a core of several main NPCs, but we aren't bound specifically to that model if we've got other NPCs that just don't quite fit that structure.
For APs that have a core of NPCs that strongly ties into that AP's plotline, we may still do a combined product like Imperial Relationships, but for NPCs that are more loosely tied to a plotline we are more likely to do them as singles. Also, for singletons like this we will be including not only the relationship writeup but also a character stat block to make each one more of a versatile plug-and-play product whether or not you are playing a specific AP.
All in all, we'll see what the customer response is and allow that to help guide where we go with this series.
This week marks the end of an era, as our long-running MYTHIC MONDAY series comes to a close with Mythic Minis 80: Inherent Advancement. This simple system can be used in mythic and non-mythic games alike to help you break the tyranny of the boring “Big Six” magic items and their bland bonuses and make treasure a lot more fun by reorienting the way you think about treasure and how characters can accumulate the basic bonuses the game assumes without having to be decked out like Christmas trees with monotonous magic items just to keep their numbers up. You can pick up this innovative and simple system at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG!
But if that’s the last hurrah for the Mythic Minis series (at least for now; we might revisit it at some point in the future), then what will replace it? Well, we figured after 80 weekly products with very few missed weeks in there, we thought maybe it was time for some R&R. Rest and relaxation? No way! How about Rivals and Relationships!
Spinning off of Mark Seifter’s best-selling Ultimate Relationships book (and its followup, Imperial Relationships), the Rivals and Relationships line will be bringing you a new character and relationship just about every week! Some will continue following up on familiar character archetypes from the Far East Adventure Path, while others may be drawn from other Adventure Paths or other common character archetypes, though every one will be a standalone character concept that you could just as easily slip into any campaign. In addition to friendly NPCs or potential romantic interests, this product line will also feature rivals and even antagonists who may not be precisely enemies but can become ongoing foils and NPCs your characters will love to hate! Keep an eye out for next week’s first installment in the Rivals and Relationships line, RR1: The Lonely Lyrakien! Here’s a quick preview just for you!
Description and Overview: The Lonely Lyrakien is a lyrakien cleric of Lady Luck who once traveled as the ally of a more powerful human cleric until her companion met an untimely end. Afterwards, she prayed to Lady Luck to show her guidance in her travels and set off on a random path, letting luck and the stars decide. Eventually, she reached the place where she saw a sign and decided to stay (in the Far Eastern Adventure Path, that location is an abandoned graveyard). There she has been watching and waiting to see why that spot is where she should stay. In addition to the Far Eastern Adventure Path, the Lonely Lyrakien is an excellent match for any Adventure Path or home game with a Chaotic Good outlook, particularly those involving travel or overthrowing tyranny. The Lonely Lyrakien’s relationship link is focused self-discovery and understanding more of her role in the universe. As she grows closer to the PC, she becomes more willing to talk about her former companion, and her thoughts about destiny and luck.
Preferred Gifts and Interactions: The Lonely Lyrakien is difficult to influence with gifts and interactions. She prefers unique experiences and tires of repetition more quickly than usual. The one thing she appreciates most of all is something that can lift an oppressive mood and bring optimism and good cheer to others; in her mind, a perfectly-crafted joke can do all of those things, but she dislikes mean-spirited and hurtful jokes.
Affinity Notes: The Lonely Lyrakien has a positive affinity for clergy of Lady Luck, like herself and her former companion. She has negative affinity for evil characters and particularly for demons and those who worship them. If an adventuring party includes both the Lonely Lyrakien and the Mute Harpy, this antagonism might lead to interesting interactions between the PCs and NPCs.
I started playing RPGs when I was 10 years old, and my youngest child is now 11, and he and his friends enjoy playing games with the beginner boxed set for Pathfinder and have played around with the starter materials for 5th Edition as well. You can always create your own adventures, or modify a published adventure to fit with the simplified rules mechanics, or use those starter materials to bridge the gap for your young players into the regular rules for each game. However, modern adventures often veer into subject matter that may not be appropriate for younger players, or with plot themes that may not grab and hold their interest.
To help bridge this gap, this fall we are introducing Legendary Beginnings, a line of adventures designed with younger players in mind. These are not simple, dumbed-down adult adventures; they are designed from the ground up to be exciting and fun adventures that can be played with adults and kids together. If you're thinking about trying to run a game for a youth group, scouting troop, after-school club, or just the kids in the neighborhood, or if you're a parent looking to introduce your own children to the best hobby in the world, keep an eye out for Legendary Beginnings! We have several products in the works already, but if you've got ideas for things you would like to see in kid-friendly Pathfinder or 5th Edition products, let us know right here or at email@example.com!
The latest (and, for now, the very last) of our Mythic Minis is up and available: Mythic Minis 80: Inherent Advancement This simple system can be used in mythic and non-mythic games alike to help you break the tyranny of the boring “Big Six” magic items and their bland bonuses and make treasure a lot more fun by reorienting the way you think about treasure and how characters can accumulate the basic bonuses the game assumes without having to be decked out like Christmas trees with monotonous magic items just to keep their numbers up.
What is replacing it on our now Mythic-less Mondays? Check out the preview for our new Rivals and Relationships series by Mark Seifter, starting next week with the Lonely Lyrakien!
I think you'll be pretty happy with how the solar came together. One of the fun things about the Mythic Monsters series is that we can take creatures that, in gameplay going all the way back to 1st edition, often feel very similar to the point of being almost indistinguishable. Mythic oozes were a great example of that, but angels fit the bill too. Other than being a few steps up on the power curve, there isn't a huge amount to distinguish a movanic from a monadic from an astral deva from a planetar or solar. Their flavor text suggests that each has a different function, and there's fertile ground there to play with those fine distinctions and enhance them in some fun and unique ways that really make the different angelic creatures FEEL different.
The latest in our Mythic Monsters series, this time devoted to the tireless titans of goodness and glory, Mythic Monsters 30: Heavenly Host is now available in wide release! A dozen and one avenging angels and awesome agathions are here for you, along with a system of sacred feats for both mythic and non-mythic characters alike, for those willing to devote themselves to the service of the better angels of their nature! Pick up Mythic Monsters 30: Heavenly Host at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, and DrivethruRPG!
For those who backed the Legendary Planet Kickstarter (or who are interested in an amazing sword and planet adventure saga taking you from 1st to 20th level), check out the latest update on progress, downloading new files, and a ton of terrific art previews. Check out the Kickstarter update here!
You can also check out another preview for Mythic Monsters: Heavenly Host on our website. This book is coming your way tomorrow, and the preview includes a look at the bonus material of Sacred Feats that fit oh-so-nicely with a book devoted to celestial servants of good!
Speaking of previews, on this MYTHIC MONDAY, we give some love to the underappreciated uncommon races of the Pathfinder-verse, from changelings to kobolds to grippli and more! Pick up your copy of Mythic Minis 79: Uncommon Racial Feats today!
While you're at it, take a look at a preview for the next product coming down the Legendary road, a product so GOOD that it's GREAT - Mythic Monsters: Heavenly Host! Mythic silvanshees and devas and solars? Yes please!

I think there's a 100% chance that we'll do a Legendary Gunslingers at some point. If only I could find someone passionate about the project who would like to do it. I wonder where I could find such a person... :)

Something I was curious about, sorry if it's not on topic. Will the Legendary Villains line get any expansion? I found both the dark druids and antipaladins books to be really good and would appreciate other books on bad guys in a similar vein.
As a matter of fact, we've got another one in development RIGHT NOW! More info to come as our previews continue!
Hey, what do you know? One of those preview products is already here! Go check out Legendary Swashbucklers by Alex Augunas and I - over 40 pages of flamboyant fantasy fighting flair, with a side order of the FREE Hypercorps 2099: Pathfinder Primer while you're at it!
Woohoo, thanks Liz!
If you like swashbucklers, you are going to love this book. Alex really went all out in creating a ton of great content, and I added a few things of my own to round out the book. This is a class that is a lot of fun to play, and this book dials that up to eleven.
I also want to give a shout-out to several new artists (well, new to LG anyway) on this project, including Alyssa Menold (creator of the cover art above), Melissa Gay, and Phill Simpson!
Trying very, very hard not to pester, but is there any hint/glimmer/inkling regarding Royal Tournaments (even if it's just "wait and see")?
Pester away! It is currently #3 in my work queue (#2 if you just count writing, as one of those I'm finished with my writing part; just need to do some editing and development).
If all goes well, it'll be up and out by the end of the month! At last our long national nightmare will finally be over! :)

You should be very pleased with some of the new monster books we have coming down the road!
The next Fall Preview is up!
