What do you get when you take Legendary Games and you add a dash of flash and a splash of panache from Everyman Games' Alex Augunas?
The latest in our line of Legendary Heroes, we are proud to present LEGENDARY SWASHBUCKLERS!
The new stuff continues, with a mix of coming soon, already here, and a blast from the past.
First off, Mythic Monsters: Heavenly Host, our 30th Mythic Monsters book, is just around the corner. It features a slew of agathions and angels, and today saw the finishing touches put on the mighty mythic planetar and solar! This book is by Jonathan H. Keith, Jason Nelson, and Sean K Reynolds, and it includes 4 creatures from the Mythic Monster Manual: the astral deva, cassisian angel, silvanshee agathion, and the brand-new rhampholeal. All other content, including an introductory section on the blessings conferred by mythic celestials and a new category of sacred feats based on those blessings.
In the spirit of such a righteous couple of creatures, we're reaching back to honor the Righteous Heroes as this week's TWO$DAY product of the week! Just 2 bucks for 8 amazingly detailed characters with fun and inventive builds, vibrant backgrounds and personalities, and even paper minis! You can get it with or without HeroLab data files, just 2 bucks either way at the Legendary Games webstore!
Lastly, if you haven't picked it up yet, those underdark races scurrying like roaches when the radiant celestials come soaring down can plot their dark revenge with Mythic Minis 77: Underdark Racial Feats, now available right here at Paizo and everywhere fine Pathfinder products are sold!
Thanks much for the kind words, DM Jeff. We are a step closer to the release of To Worlds Unknown as well, as revealed in the latest Kickstarter update!
Check out the latest news and art preview, as well as announcing one vacancy each for a new Prince of the Universe and Savior of the Universe, in case anyone would like to enhance their pledge to these previously sold-out levels!
Speaking of new stuff, by the way, it's shaping up to be an Asian kind of week at Legendary Games, with Mythic Minis 76: Far Eastern Racial Feats rolling in with all kinds of fun options for your tengus, kitsune, and more!
Will the TWO$DAY Special be continued? I think the Legendary Games website has been showing the same product in this slot for more than a month, but i still claims "Each week we bring you a special $2 product for our TWO$DAY deal. Check back to see what popular product will be next!" :)
Sure. I just didn't have time to update it around and after GenCon. Should have updated it last week but Tuesday is just around the corner so we'll pop up a new product then!
We are excited to put our super foot forward into a new genre of gaming and Mike and Boomer came up with a great vision and setting for this project, which Mike is carrying forward with his team. While the core team is rocking the house on Legendary Planet, we are delighted to support Mike's Hypercorps 2099 team in building something very cool.
The Treasury of the Orient is NOW AVAILABLE from Legendary Games, with over 30 brand-new magic items ideally suited for campaigns with an Asian influence, whether wholly set in an Asian fantasy culture or blending east and west with transcontinental explorers and adventurers. Grab your copy today everywhere!
Ah, but you haven't missed out at all! If you'd like to pledge in at the Kickstarter prices, we are still taking orders via Paypal. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with what pledge you'd like to make and send the corresponding amount via Paypal to the same address. Don't miss it!
One of the goals for Legendary Games during the rest of 2015 is to get some long-simmering projects finished up and out the door, including revisiting some of our older product lines and tying up some products that have been long in the planning. The first of those is very nearly here, and in fact should be available by the end of tomorrow: Treasury of the Orient!
You can see the full update and some art previews on our website right here, but if you're curious about what marvelous treasures you'll find within, here's the list (with one or two more items that may show up pending final revisions):
Arms and Armor: beheading blade, bestial haramaki, biting glade of ten thousand blossoms, bloodthirsty blade, choking spirit bow, lucky mallet,ronin blade, stalking serpent blade, typhoon fan
Rods: rod of the monkey king, rod of shadow puppetry
Wondrous Items: circlet of the imperial dragon, clothes of the ever-ready explorer, ghost food, ki capstan, kimono of honored ancestors, koto of the seven spheres, monkey's head charm, noh mask of the shapechanger, papercraft sheet, prayer scroll amulet, robe of the fire rat, sovereign lungguan, spiritworld flute, sugegasa of rising waters, teapot of inner flame, teapot of the mountain, teapot of serenity
Seems like the original links worked fine when sent but something must have changed in our dropbox arrangement because people are having trouble with it now. I think Rachel may have sent out specific links to the filenames rather than a link to the folder itself, so if anything changed about the file the first link wouldn't work. As Chemlak said, email us and we'll send you a new link for the folder.
That has certainly been our intention in creating rules expansion modules for mass combat and kingdom-building. They do work seamlessly together, and with the official rules for both in Ultimate Campaign, since all were created by the same designer, but you can also mix and match as you choose to calibrate the play experience to be what you want it to be.
The art and map folio for Legendary Planet is up now! Check out our latest Kickstarter update and pick up yours today!
Meanwhile, high-level characters in a fantasy RPG are really the superheroes of their worlds. You can argue over which class or race is the strongest, but in the olden days it was not unheard-of to have cross-genre campaigns where PCs might encounter actual superheroes (I know I worked in the Casket of Ancient Winters and the Darkhold from Marvel comics into an old campaign).
I've been thinking about superheroes in fantasy gaming in part from a purely artistic perspective, since one of the new alien races in our Legendary Planet setting is a sentient construct race that resembles the Iron Man armor, or perhaps something Ultron might have constructed. You can see the new art in our latest Kickstarter update, along with the announcement of our free Art and Map Folio for "The Assimilation Strain," which we'll be doing for each of our adventures in this series.
Thanks. I think it went very well, though the final numbers await. Still, we came back with much less than we brought, so I'll call that a win!
Still catching up after spotty internet access for most of two weeks, but many things should start rolling out very soon!
GenCon is a whirlwind in many ways, but now on the other side of it we are gearing back up for a great wind-up to the year.
There is new stuff available now in wide release, including the brand-new Mythic Monsters: Plants and Mythic Minis 75: Orc Feats.
The Legendary Planet Kickstarter may be over, but we are still accepting late pledges via Paypal at the same discount backers get, with IMMEDIATE download of the first adventure, The Assimilation Strain, and the Legendary Planet Player's Guide, with both products available for both Pathfinder and 5th Edition. Just email us at email@example.com and let us know what pledge level you'd like to select (check the Kickstarter page here) and we'll add you to the spreadsheet and get you the download links.
And did we mention that The Assimilation Strain has already earned a 5-star review and the coveted seal of approval from master reviewer Endzeitgeist? Check out the full review on his site, but in summary he says:
I honestly did not expect the prologue to Legendary Planet to be a mystery, much less one that is this good; whether played for weirdness or downright horror, this module makes clear from the get-go that it’s not your standard fantasy fare. But only in hindsight. As a piece of advice: Don’t tell your players necessarily that this will be a sword & planet module. There are several themes that make for delightful red herrings in the hands of a capable GM, making the realization of what is truly going on have even more of an impact.
The Assimilation Strain is an excellent module and a furious first in the series, one that makes me very happy I’ve been able to back the kickstarter. With great production values and content that must be considered awesome, this module is a great way to kick off the AP, one that has me stoked to see what’s in store for us. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval.
But that's just tying off the loose ends from before GenCon. The next adventure for Legendary Planet, To Worlds Unknown, is on track to release by the end of the August, and we have a whole line of great new stuff coming your way as well, including revisiting some of our older product lines to finish them off and opening up new products as well! Check this thread to follow the latest upcoming news from Legendary Games. This is going to be a spectacular summer, a fantastic fall and a wonderful winter as we ride out the rest of 2015!
If we get a goodly stream of post-KS pledges, it may yet be possible. We'll see what happens.
Fear not, Evil Midnight Lurker!
Of the remaining one stretch goal we didn't reach, 6 of the 12 pages are Chris Jackson's fiction story, which I think we've already announced will be completed, and the other 6-page article slot will be filled by Clinton Boomer's evil civilization article (the 400-backer goal), so the content and page count from that final stretch goal is already going to be filled, even if we don't raise a single dollar from post-KS pledges!
If you missed the announcement on our website about our big GenCon sale, we just want to remind you that there are big savings to be had on Paizo.com on almost every product from Legendary Games, from 25% up to 50%, on PDFs, print products, and print/PDF bundles. If you're looking for big savings on our products, check out our publisher page on Paizo right now!

Backer surveys will be going out probably a week or two after GenCon, which is when you'll enter your address and provide info on extra pledges, etc.
1. I'll be returning home toward the end of next week and will start sending out softcovers soon thereafter. That said, if we are very close to done with To Worlds Unknown by then I may wait a few days and send both softcovers together.
2. If you're sharing it with your home group of players, go for it. Otherwise, keep it under your hat.
3. That's an open question and the options you've suggested work well. We may include some info about that in the frontmatter or backmatter of To Worlds Unknown. I'll talk to Neil to see if that's something we want to add to the Player's Guide.

Of course we'll take post-KS PayPal buy-ins. Send your $$ to firstname.lastname@example.org, and send an email to email@example.com to let Rachel know to update your entry in the spreadsheet when she builds it after returning from GenCon.
Thanks to everybody for keeping the faith and pushing this product so hard. We had a great beginning and we're looking at a great finish! I have a feeling we'll be making that final gazetteer!
Sorry I haven't been posting here all day - I've been dealing with a ton of freight-related issues for our Mythic Mania Kickstarter books, but I should be good to go for our final hour!
Woohoo and many thanks to all our backers! We have unlocked ANOTHER bonus goal, a planetary gazetteer for the gas giant and its merciless moons. Now over 800% funding with 27 hours left, we now have $50,000 in our sights to add James Jacobs as a guest author and stretch towards 700 pages. MAKE IT SO!!!
