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!

When will that be determined, for those who picked something like Interplanetary Hero, where you can get a hardback of either PF or 5E? I'd prefer Pathfinder, obviously, but that wasn't asked during the pledging process.

Most of the pledge levels already stipulate whether you're going PF or 5E. Just a few of them give you the choice of one or the other.

Mr. Nelson,

Will you be delivering PDFs to backers through DriveThru/RPGNow or through the Legendary Games website?

Edit: Just $808 to go to unlock another 10-pg bestiary.

We will probably set it up as a dropbox download, as we did for our Mythic Mania PDFs. Once we get the final export list of email addresses when the Kickstarter closes, we'll email out the 5E link to the 5E backers and the Pathfinder link for Pathfinder backers (or both, if you back both).

And we have less than $500 to go to the next goal counting our off-KS Paypal pledges!

This is your chance to hop on board a spectacular sword-and-planet adventure saga by some of the best authors in the RPG business - Neil Spicer, Jim Groves, Mike Shel, Matt Goodall, Richard Pett, Steven T. Helt, Tim Hitchcock, and Jason Nelson, plus guest contributors like Sean K Reynolds, James Jacobs, Patrick Renie, Chris A. Jackson, Erik Mona, and the Sasquatch Design Studio team of Richard Baker, Dave Noonan, and Stephen Schubert! Available for 5th Edition rules and for Pathfinder, in PDF and in print. You can pledge for just the introductory adventures or for the whole thing.

Backers will be able to download the prelude adventure, "The Assimilation Strain," and the Legendary Planet Player's Guide immediately after the end of the Kickstarter, with "To Worlds Unknown" following in mid-August and each new adventure arriving every 1-2 months, plus a final compilation PDF and massive hardcover available no later than July 2016.

We're over $45,000 and about to hit 350 backers, unlocking a fantastic cover artist for the final compilation of the entire saga. Check out the latest update and spread the word. This adventure is gonna be out of this world!

After many delays in the printing, import, and export process, the books are finally in Seattle, loaded on a freight truck, and will be delivered to our storage area on Monday!

While this is good news and a great relief to finally be able to finally get them in hand, the timing is unfortunate because we are leaving early Tuesday morning, so we will not have time to dive into shipping out our backer copies before GenCon as hoped. We may be able to make a delivery to the Paizo office on Monday, but most of their warehouse crew is already en route to GenCon, so it's uncertain how soon they will be able to process the books into their inventory and begin sending out copies. It may be during GenCon week or it may be after the full staff gets back, but at least we can say with surety that they'll have the books in hand shortly and they'll be on their way as soon as possible thereafter.

The saga of the Mythic Mania books has been far longer and more torturous than expected, and this year has been a bad one for smaller game companies and overseas printing and shipping. Legendary Games, Kobold Press, and Green Ronin have all had problems with missed ship dates and delays (ours went from May to June to July to LATE July with little explanation or justification), and in light of this experience we are making other arrangements for future print orders, such as for our Legendary Planet Kickstarter that is winding up on Monday. We pride ourselves on reliability and delivering terrific products on time (or early), and we were delighted to be able to get you the Mythic Mania PDFs before our May 2015 delivery date, but we've been disappointed at the delays we've experienced in trying to get the books to us so, so we can get them to you.

We look forward to putting a bow on the Mythic Mania project and getting each and every one of you a great set of books as soon as we can.

I'm keeping my pledge for now, but at this stage, my ability to fulfil it hinges on my tax return getting in before the campaign ends... if it doesn't, is there any chance of doing a post-campaign (by a couple of days) pledge via Paypal? I'd hate myself for missing out on this, but a few unexpected expenses have left me chewing my nails anxiously.

No problem. We've already gotten some support for this campaign using that route, and if that's the way you need to go to make it happen, just hit us up at our makeyourgamelegendary at gmail email addy and we'll make it so.

So much gnashing of teeth and wringing of hands.

Jason, I need to ask, and I get that you might not be able to, or willing to discuss this, but some discussion might not hurt. Or it might. I dunno.

Here's where I'm at; I'm in, and have been since the early days, with the projected desire of the full hardcover. I'm a sucker for massive books like Slumbering Tsar. I'm watching Kicktraq, and I'm watching Kickstarter, and stressing out. My problem is this... I get it that if we don't hit $58k then somehow you'll finish the AP. Problem is I don't want a hardcover with 85% of the content and then a second softcover/PDF/hardcover with the remaining 15%. That totally wrecks the OCD completionist in me.

I'll keep my pledge in until the last minute, but I'd like to explore what the plans are if this doesn't quite make it to "complete". I'm not afraid to spend more money, but I can't justify another six grand. <Grin>

Point is... if this almost hits $58k, is there some discussion of the whatever that completes it being available as a single entity. As in, if we hit 85% on this KS, and you run a second one later for the last 15%, will there be a way for people who pledge for both to get 100% in one single, unified, beautiful, awesome book? That's my sole concern; the physical format. Not so much the price, not so much the timing, not so much how it's funded. Just if there's a plan being brewed that allows it to happen.

Been struggling with how to put that question for weeks now without breaking anyone's confidence.

We will absolutely be completing the adventure path.

If we do not fully fund all parts, it may have a little less bonus material than we had hoped, but the adventures will all get done. Period.

And they will be LEGENDARY!

Actually, I was a little behind; we ALREADY crossed the $42,000 mark due to some off-Kickstarter Paypal support for the project, so Jeffrey Robbins was the backer that pushed us over the line, and we've now closed the book on The Depths of Desperation and are less than $2,000 away from unlocking Tim Hitchcock's Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons, which will push us up to 600 pages!

Couple of questions~

1) In the interview with A Sword For Hire, it was mentioned "We also hope to have a first look at these core deities—as another update to the Kickstarter—in the form of a simple table detailing their alignments, portfolios, domains, favored weapons, etc." Is that still likely to happen, or should we wait for To Worlds Unknown?

2) Is there a (rough) timetable for the release of the Player's Guide?
2a) Or, failing that, are there any Campaign Traits you can tell us about? I'm currently running a PbP recruitment, and the sooner there's some word on those, the better. XD

Check out our latest Kickstarter update for a list of the core deities of Legendary Planet, along with their alignment and domains for Pathfinder, and Sean K Reynolds will also be providing 5th Edition analogs for the powers and portfolios of these divine beings.

The Legendary Planet Player's Guide is churning along. I've just checked in with the guys so we should have an update soon. Like the To Worlds Unknown adventure, it *might* get done before GenCon, but if I had to guess I'd say it's more likely to come out a week or two after.

I'll see what I can do about getting a preview of campaign traits to help focus characters on the AP.

I think James has an excellent handle on that delicate communion of fantasy and sci-fi with a dash of horror thrown in, and I think he'll bring some very fun ideas to the table. And a little name recognition doesn't hurt either.

I've gamed with James off and on for years, as player and GM, and he has a great grasp of *fun* in adventures, which not everyone does. That's something I think he'll definitely bring to the project and a big reason I'm happy to have him on board.

About halfway there to the last funding goal on The Depths of Desperation, then we're off to the Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons at $44,000. Not far now...

Papa-DRB, just make sure you pledge enough money to cover any add-ons you want. After the Kickstarter closes, you should be sent a survey to choose your add-ons.

At least, that is how other Kickstarters have worked for me in the past, and how I contributed. Hopefully, one of the Legendary Gurus can correct me if I'm mistaken.

Ok, I added $20 to my pledge. I think that gets me the soft covers of the first two (prequel and #1), right? And LG will send me a survey to confirm that, right?

It looks like I will have to do PoD separately as each one comes out, right?

As you can tell, I am not completely sure about all this.

-- david

You've got it right. We did not build in a softcover POD for everything option as our pre-project surveys indicated that the great majority of respondents preferred a single hardcover to a set of softcovers.

We did want to offer the first two softcovers as a sort of "entry level" for backers who wanted print right away, as some backers don't like to back for a higher pledge level early in a project, before they feel like enough has gotten completed to give them a good deal, and we had hoped to get both the prelude and the first adventure done in time for the end of the Kickstarter. The prelude is in the can and ready to drop, but for To Worlds Unknown it's looking like it'll be ready to go the middle of August rather than the end of July. I'm still happy with that turnaround time to start getting the adventures out to our backers, and I'd much rather have it mid-August and beautiful than rushed and not quite there.

The Kickstarter winds up next Monday evening (I think at 9:00 Eastern/6:00 Pacific), and I'm looking forward to a fast and furious finish. I think we still have an excellent chance to fully fund the last two adventures, so keep spreading the good word and let's blow this thing up in the final week!

If you go to your Backed Projects tab, you can see which backer number you are.

Incidentally, I'm backer #3. Having literally a hundred times my number in people backing a campaign is neat. ^^~

The backer number on the backer report tells what order you are in of everyone who has backed the project at any time; however, it doesn't remove people from the list when they drop out. For example, our current most recent backer is Erich Wildgrube Iv, who list listed as backer #333 on the backer report, even though we currently have 304 backers. That just means there have been 29 backers pledge and drop at various points throughout the campaign (at least one person has pledged and dropped a couple of times). The 300th person to make a pledge was Trey, but of our current active pledges Alex Coyner was the one that made our counter hit 300.

Not that it matters in the grand scheme; we love ALL of our backers! It's just kind of fun to call out the name of the person who pushes us across the line. People enjoyed it when we did it with our mythic Kickstarter, so we decided to do it again this time around. But to each and every one, whether you pledged $5 or $500, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU for making this project such a success... and we still have 8 days to go!

I have to confess that Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons, less than $4000 away from unlocking now, is my very favorite title in our whole saga. It just screams pulp at you in all the best ways, and Tim definitely gets the feeling we are going for.

Trolls aren't immune to the fatigued or exhausted conditions, though in the case of nonlethal damage that specifically causes fatigue, their regeneration comes into play to negate the damage and thus the fatigue.

However, this brings up one of those RAW-logic points of silliness which leads someone to say their character (or their troll) never needs to eat or drink again, because the only penalty for not eating or drinking is nonlethal damage, which they heal faster than it could possibly kill them.

Trolls (and most PCs) are humanoids, and humanoids as a creature type need to eat, drink, and sleep. The game stipulates a specific penalty for temporarily going without any of these things in the form of nonlethal damage; however, the game also contains the embedded assumption that at some point you will resume eating, drinking, or sleeping, or you will die of hunger, thirst, or exhaustion.

TL;DR - Yes, the trolls or the army with magical healing don't actually take nonlethal damage as a result of not sleeping; however, as humanoids they still need to sleep. How you choose to enforce that point is up to you when the logic of the situation feels like it should trump the specific (and, in this case, ineffectual) game mechanic of nonlethal damage as the lever to force the trolls to sleep.

The simple solution is just to say that a unit becoming "fatigued" in the abstract mass combat sense is not the same as an individual creature dealing with fatigue, exhaustion, sleep, or nonlethal damage, and therefore regeneration wouldn't prevent a unit from becoming fatigued.

As to whether Magical Healing should give you unlimited fatigue removal, that is what the Magical Healing command boon allows as written, and there's even some sense of thematic precedent in the idea of an army holed up defending a temple basically subsisting on divine blessings. There is the limitation that it affects only a single unit on your army's side, but if your whole army is just one unit then it lets you auto-rejuvenate.

So, clearly, the boon lets you remove all the fatigue you want; however, it's also within reason to apply a limit to how many times you can stave off fatigue before you just can't do it anymore. If you'd like an official errata, I'd probably say this:

Fatigue can be removed (or exhaustion reduced to fatigue) by Magical Healing no more than twice per day per unit, even if the Magical Healing comes from different sources. Additional magical healing can remove damage or other conditions (such as paralysis).
