Get those stat blocks in, people. We want to see the wicked cool final result!

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

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!

This book also contains the traditional frontmatter section, which deals with mythic flowers and plants, including two new mythic plant-based spells, which is all new content.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

We'd like to have all the additional pledges completed by the end of August at the latest. Which should be just in time to grab the next adventure, which we hope to have ready to drop somewhere around August 31st.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

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!

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 final manuscript and art have been sent to layout, so we should have it up and ready to rock sometime tomorrow!

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

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

Am I the only one having troubles in downloading it?

Both the dropbox urls I got where to files directly and now are both dead, and I haven't any dropbox folder url to download it.

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.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Thanks for the kind words. We hope it helps make the campaign easier and more fun to run for players and GMs alike!

A castle and fortification rulebook? If I can use that without owning any of the other Ultimate books, I'll buy it.
The Ultimate series has so far been very good about enabling you to mix-and-match what you want to use and what you don't. Assuming such a book fits in with the other Ultimate series books, it will have options that work regardless of whether you're using the other rules or not, or it will call out exactly how it works with them if you are. I think you can rest assured that it will stand alone quite well.

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.

One thing I should note also is that the player-friendly art and map folio will be ready once our layout guy for the project gets home from GenCon and family visits, so you'll have your player-friendly unkeyed maps very soon!

Thanks for the review Endy. Once we get the next adventure, To Worlds Unknown completed and out to backers, we'll be uploading The Assimilation Strain here (and everywhere else) for the general public to grab too!

Also, welcome back, hope your time off was restful, and that GenCon went well for you (personally and as a company).

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 makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.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!

What I think he is after is the final stretch goal on top of those other things if people Paypal it...

I don't see a need, but that seems to be the idea.
It's a fear of lost content.

Jason Nelson wrote:

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 we get a goodly stream of post-KS pledges, it may yet be possible. We'll see what happens.

Will LG be sending an email requesting shipping address and what we want our extra money spent on?

Also, waiting and getting both softcovers at the same time is cool with me.

Adding that kind of information to the players guide, or even a separate download / blog / web page would be wonderful.

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.

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Hi there,

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.
