Thanks for the assist, Rednal!

Thanks for hopping into the discussion Rednal.

I'd agree that the monsters in here cap out at CR 30 by design, as that's as far as any official published Pathfinder monsters go, but Rednal offers a lot of good suggestions for how to improve them further.

I'd also suggest the Path of Villains and Path of Dragons as good supplements to existing mythic rules that really make your monsters more effective and resilient to dirty tricks your PCs will try to pull on them. This content is not duplicated in our mythic hardbacks (other than a couple of mythic dragon abilities).

I'm actually running two separate groups through Legendary Planet right now. One group has all standard fantasy races (though one is an alienist summoner from the Gothic Campaign Compedium), while the other has two chlorvians. One was raised by gnomes and thinks she's just a tall, barky gnome. So her background is basically as an orphan who had never known anything other than the gnomes, though there are a few strange family stories about things that had clues about other worlds.

The other is more of the amnesia background.

Both of them get called "wood elves" by almost everybody (and so, for that matter, does the gnome) - a bit of a running gag on the fantasy world. Of course, now they're off into To Worlds Unknown, so the gag isn't needed any longer, but I'm sure it'll come up again at some point.

I just ran into a weird situation from using the Base Settlement Statistics presented in Ultimate Rulership. I like the starting Base Value for each settlement type and how they can be improved upon through specific buildings, but what about the Purchase Limit?

Right now, the capital city that my players have built over the course of 5 years (in game time) has a current population of 5,560, with 54 lots, making it a Metropolis (since it is at least 2 districts; I have no concerns about these numbers since their capital city is more like a downtown core that is the greatest collection of the nation's economic power but not the highest population density). Thanks to some of the buildings within the city, the highest spellcasting level is 7th and the current Base Value is 9,500.

The problem (from a common sense point of view) that arose is that there are no other suggested alternatives for the Purchase Limit. In lieu of suggested alternatives, I went with the chart in the Gamemastery Guide book, which sets the Purchase Limit to 100,000 gold pieces for a Metropolis settlement.

That feels drastically off to me for a settlement that has a diverse spread of economic development with just the minimum number of people living there to make it work. The Purchase Limit of the settlement feels way too high when you compare it to the Population and Base Value numbers. Any suggestions on how to make a starting value for the Purchase Limit based on settlement type?

Cheers!

CB out.

Sure. The simple solution is to assign the settlement type based on the Settlement Population Ranges on p. 203 of the GMG. At a population of 5,560, they're just barely over the line to "Small City," which would give a purchase limit of 25,000 gp.

The "two districts equal a metropolis" concept is a weird one, and I think it ends up attributing more game-mechanical meaning to the word than it should have. Go with population and let it rock.

A very very very minor typo, and the only reason I found it was because I was searching the Chapter 0 pdf based on what the map said.

The map on page five (Holver's Ferry, Orphanage, Arvarenhode Manor) misspells Arvarenhode as Avarenhode (notice the first R is missing). This is in both the adventure and the map PDF.

Really not a big thing, in fact super tiny thing, but it just caught my eye as I was searching for where it was mentioned in the PDF and other than the map the "wrong" spelling is no where else.

Can we assume there will be Mythic Module Monsters for additional APS?

There might be. Sales were disappointing for he Rune Lords series, so they got pushed to the back burner. We had planned to do an Iron Gods series next and we still may, but we may also take a run at doing a more current AP instead of a "classic" one and see what the response is like.

- For our Egyptian line, Past Lives by Michael Kortes explores the topic of reincarnation in a novel and exciting way.

Of course you know I'm looking forward to finally having Royal Tournaments and Ultimate Armies. Way of the Blade sounds good too, just from the title, though I'm unclear on what the book is about other than, I would assume, combat-related material.

And with that Past Lives idea? I would LOVE to have someone do something on how to use reincarnation as a background idea for characters that aren't samsaran. Both crunch and fluff -- how do you prove to your old loved ones that you're who you say you are, especially if you came back as some other race?

Indeed the whole thing sounds like such a great idea I have to wonder why no one seems to have done anything with it before this.

I should be sending Past Lives to layout this week, so hopefully it'll be done and ready to release by next week. I just have to get the artwork organized and it should be ready to go. I think you'll enjoy what Mike Kortes has done here.

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.

I'd love to support this Kickstarter but sadly there are too many reasons (financial constraints, lack of interested players, etc.) on why this would not be a good idea for me at this time, :(. Which sucks for me, because I really do like the products put out by Legendary Games - they were literally the first 3PP that convinced me to try using gaming content developed by 3PP, and I haven't regretted that decision since then.

I highly encourage anyone else who is on the fence about supporting this Kickstarter (if because they are not sure about the quality and level of dedication to game design by a 3PP) to take that leap and jump into the wagon with Legendary Games. :)

Cheers!

Thanks for the kind words, CB. We're certainly happy to count you among the friends of LG!

We were very pleased with the response to Trail of the Apprentice - almost 350 backers and just over $19,000 including some Paypal direct pledges.

If anyone is interested in hopping on board even after the Kickstarter has closed, you can still email us at makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.com and do a direct pledge via Paypal. We have a few people who have emailed us already whose payday comes at the end of the month, and we're happy to work with them to make sure they have the chance to hop on board, and we're confident you're going to really like what you see when you get these adventures.

It's the final day of the Trail of the Apprentice Kickstarter! Hop on the Trail today!

It's been a long Trail, but we are approaching the end. We still have time to hit more bonus goals, though! We thank each and every one of you for your support, but because we love milestones we give a special shout-out to Backer #300, John Bowlin, and to wolfthulu for pushing us over the $17,000 mark!

For hitting the 300-backer mark, we have added a bonus section on Continuing the Campaign! This section will discuss not only the secret master villain behind this Apprentice your heroes have been chasing (and what other apprentices or servants that villain may have), but also more broadly the idea of transitioning from a beginner-style game to a standard Pathfinder or 5E campaign.

We also are closing fast on $18,000, which would be TRIPLE our initial funding goal, and if we hit that number we'll be producing a brand-new Legendary Beginnings adventure. This won't be part of the storyline of Trail of the Apprentice, but we'll be offering you a choice of several different adventure ideas (including a sequel to Into the Feyweald, available as an add-on pledge) and every backer will have a chance to vote on which adventure they'd like to see us do! This adventure would be created after we finish our obligations to Trail of the Apprentice, of course, but if all goes well we may be able to get it done in time for GenCon this August!

Speaking of getting things done, The King's Curse has completed layout for the Pathfinder version and is in layout now for the 5E version, so once we complete our backer surveys you'll be able to get the first TWO adventures in the series next week!

The sketches for the last two pieces of art for the adventures came in last night, and they're looking great. I'm looking forward to the final versions for adventures #3 and #4, and I'm happy to share one below! Meanwhile, keep spreading the word #TrailoftheApprentice - this thing ain't over yet! KEEP CLIMBING THE TRAIL!!!

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.

Have a possibly odd question about a piece of artwork

the piece with all the Iconics captured in an arena of some sort is from book 2 from what I can tell but is it from an actual thing that happens in the book or more of a chapter opener (Like how paizo monster books can have Iconics getting owned/killed?)

Let's say it's a thing that COULD happen, depending on how things go around the table. I haven't seen the finished manuscript for The Scavenged Codex yet, though, so I guess we'll see what surprises Mike, Mike, and Neil have in store for us!

This may have been answered before, but how integral is Mythic content to the AP? I'm not against Mythic content by any means, just unfamiliar with it, and wondering whether, if I would rather leave Mythic content out, it is easy to unbuckle from the AP.

It's very easy to unbuckle it on the player side. There are some mythic creatures in the AP, but those are pretty easy to run in a standard Pathfinder campaign. Most of their abilities are spelled out or already included in the stat block, and a handful of things that aren't (mythic surges, etc.) can be easily looked up for free on the PRD or simply ignored if you don't want to deal with them.

Qstor wrote:

I just got part 1 today. Two questions

1. Are there any rules for spaceships etc in the AP?

2. Are there descriptions of the planets in the solar system in the AP? Or the home worlds of the new races in the Players Guide?

Quick answers:

1. No. The style and theme of this AP is about sword and planet adventuring, rather than space opera, so MOST of the adventuring in the saga takes place planetside. Travel from planet to planet mostly takes place by way of stargate portals, though there are some adventures (especially Richard Pett's Confederates of the Shattered Zone, set in an asteroid belt, and Tim Hitchcock's Mind Tyrants of the Merciless Moons and my To Kill a Star, where there is some near-space action and some alternate means of transport across the gulfs of space.

In creating the themes for this adventure, we found that introducing active spaceflight and space vehicles pulled the focus away from the "pulp-style alien planet" action that we really wanted to embrace with this project, so we made a conscious decision to not have easy vehicular spaceflight.

In short, mechanical spaceflight in Legendary Planet isn't any more advanced than what we could do today in the real world, and there are other more exotic options that make pursuing that technology not particularly interesting to the people of the universe.

2. Each adventure features a planetary gazetteer that mostly details the planet itself but also gives a bit of information on other planets in the system. The general conceit is that the planets where the action take place are the primary inhabited worlds in their respective systems, so while there is some colonization the systems generally are not like the Golarion system in Pathfinder where basically every planet is teeming with intelligent life.

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.

Meditations of the Imperial Mystics was the follow-up product to that, and Way of the Blade will be a similar expansion for the stuff in Way of Ki. If we do a compilation at some point, we would definitely include an update for things like that, and it's still possible we could expand it further. Only so many hours in the day...

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!

Is there any news about Legendary Fighter?

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.

Nobody will ever match the value of $9.99 for 256 to 320-page PDFs of the core hardbacks

I know that, Paizo's income doen't come from the PDFs. Wishful thinking loudly.

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. Even if you can't afford to get all our stuff, at least you'll have a couple of new things to look forward to!

Using Mythic Solutions and the Mythic Heroes Handbook from Legendary has helped me avoid a lot of the problems early players had with mythic in my own campaign. We love it at my table. We've been having a blast running a real mythic adventure across Golarion. Legendary Games continues to add to that enjoyment with these releases.

Thanks for the kind words, Brother Fen.

We like to think we've addressed the key issues with mythic play in the products you mention, and while mythic isn't necessarily for everyone, I definitely agree with Kvantum on the point that mythic for monsters in particular is a terrific toolbox for GMs to spice up the challenges their players face in a systematic way. I mean, look, any GM can handwave hit points or saving throws and so on to keep their monsters in the fight, but I think having an organized system for building or playing with monsters and villains to make encounters more dynamic and cinematic, while subverting your players' expectations and typical tactical assumptions.

If you like robots in your Pathfinder game, Lord Fyre, give this one a look. If you buy it on our website and decide you don't like it, email me at makeyourgamelegendary@gmail.com and I'll give you your money back.

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.

This may be a repeat of my previous requests, but I would love a legendary games book of monsters of the troop subtype.

Interesting...

India definitely has some great monsters. They're on the list!

Thanks for the great review, Endy, and glad you enjoyed! Back from my travels, I'll do my best to get the Occult Character Codex: Kineticists off to layout ASAP so you can complete your collection!
