There is no rest for the MYTHIC MANIACS!

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

The desolation has ended. The DRAGONS have arrived. Get your copy of Path of Dragons today! Now available exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore, and available next week here at Paizo!

In case you're wondering what in the world a Path of Dragons is...

Dragons are amazing creatures, with an epic legacy throughout myth, legend, and RPGs, but when heroes rise to the heights of mythic power sometimes the dragons in your campaign are the ones running for cover. The mythic rules for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game offer an amazing toolkit for building exciting and amazing monsters, but the balance of power is still decidedly pro-PC. NO MORE!

Path of Dragons from Legendary Games brings you nearly 70 new mythic abilities specially tailored for the scaly suzerains of monsterdom, including a host of abilities suitable for every kind of dragon, from clinging breath to impenetrable scales and from winged tempest to strafing breath. In addition to this array of abilities both offensive and defensive, Path of Dragons also brings you rules for new Dragon Paths: focused clusters of special abilities built around key themes of dragonhood, from a miser dragon's fool's gold, hoard crawlers, and jeweled coat to a tyrant dragon's mythic minion, imperious glare, and cult of the dragon! These Dragon Paths work in concert with existing mythic abilities and can be applied to any mythic dragon of any age, color, or species, because you just might need an cunning green dragon sibilant, a hulking white dragon titan, a brilliant blue dragon arcanius, a stoic silver dragon watcher, or a soaring brass dragon skylord. Good or evil, chromatic or metallic or something else, every dragon in your campaign will find something to smile about in Path of Dragons. Mythic dragons are great, but now it's time to Make Your Dragons Legendary!

The Mythic Path series from Legendary Games looks to fill in the niches that are not quite served by the existing mythic paths, providing exciting new options for your mythic heroes and diabolical dirty tricks for your mythic villains, made by the same creative minds that helped build the mythic rules. Whether for heroes or villains, the abilities in these Mythic Paths offer a host of great new options for your mythic game, bringing fabulous flavor and imaginative mechanics with the standard of excellence in design that you've come to expect from Legendary Games. Pick up this 28-page supplement for today and Make Your Game Legendary!

Just a question here: is next year's hotel the Doubletree on International Drive, or the one near Southcenter? (The Doubletree site itself refers to both as "DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Seattle Airport", hence my question.)

It's the one on International.

You're quite correct, Joseph, which is why we were interested to get feedback from our fans on the issue and see what people thought.

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Definitely something to add to the list of things to investigate. Thanks.

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Some of our paperback books are too narrow to add words on the spine, but for longer products we'll see if that's something we can add with our print service.

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Hi all,

We are working on some redesign concepts for our covers and we would be happy to have your feedback. Check out the latest update on our website and give us your feedback. We'll be selecting one respondent at random to get a free copy of Mythic Monsters: Aliens when it comes out!

Sound off, Legendary fans. We want to hear from you!

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

And something decidedly more horrible than the mythic flumph. The latest SUMMER PREVIEW brings you someTHING straight out of a nightmare!

Dr. Blair: You see, what we're talkin' about here is an organism that imitates other life-forms, and it imitates 'em perfectly. When this thing attacked our dogs it tried to digest them... absorb them, and in the process shape its own cells to imitate them. This for instance. That's not dog. It's imitation. We got to it before it had time to finish.

Vance Norris: Finish what?

Maybe waiting to FINISH BECOMING LEGENDARY!

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Time for another preview, and this one is totally OUT OF THIS WORLD! An ALIEN INVASION is on the way, just in time for GenCon! Sounds Legendary.

Mythic.
Monsters.
ALIENS!

If you eat at a restaurant, would it bother you that the cooks are trying to make a living, and aren't motivated solely by a passion for food? If you want your car fixed, is it more important that your auto mechanic is crazy about his job, or that your car works? It's no secret that money drives people to do their jobs.
Pretty much this. To put it bluntly, I don't care nearly as much about motivation as I do the quality of the final result. If the product is appealing enough to convince me to spend money on it, I don't care why it was made in the first place.

Oh, I agree, it's just that I can usually feel it when a movie is a product rather than than it's makers' passion. I can't exactly prove anything, but I feel like examining the case of Cars vs. Toy Story is enough to convey what I mean - the former is a toy commercial, and the latter (ironically) is not. Imagine if the elevator pitch for Toy Story was similar to the one about Cars (It would make for a great deal with McDonald's!). We would lose on some of the greatest creativity in the field because of an attempt to sell some more products.

Of course there's always just the option of not watching the thing, though there's no avoiding people going to yet another brainless movie and thinking that that's what fantasy is about.

Aaron Bitman said it well - I don't know yet if this is really the case with this project. However, when one considers the percentage of movie trilogies that were trilogies because they had a story to justify it vs. those who were more about the equation (# of same movies)x(money each movie makes) > (money one movie makes)... odds are, the story does not justify three movies.

For what it's worth, Cars was probably the biggest personal passion project that John Lasseter ever did for Pixar. As a boomer kid, he's actually deeply nostalgic for the kitsch of American road culture, the cars of the 50s and 60s, and the whole Route 66 road trip through the west. You can argue with the results and the NASCAR side of the plot, and with the sequels and spinoffs, because those did come about because while Cars was only solid hit with good reviews (instead of an absolute home run), it sold a METRIC CRAPTON of merchandise. The spinoffs were done to capitalize on that market; I mean, seriously, who expected not only a Planes movie but a near-immediate Planes sequel.

But the first Cars movie? Absolutely a labor of love for Lasseter.

Nope, you've got it right. Mythic Monsters: Dragons contains stat blocks for 13 mythic dragons ranging from the CR 1 mythic pseudodragon to the CR 27 great wyrm red, with new mythic abilities for all of the creatures, a brand-new mythic dragon in the fell drake, and a half-dozen or so mythic feats to make your dragons devastating. It's a small bestiary of 13 monsters plus bonus material.

Path of Dragons will be more of a toolbox of special abilities and themed path groups that you can apply to any dragon you wish, including ones that are statted out in our product or in the Mythic Adventures hardback but also any dragon you create for yourself or find in an existing adventure.

Jason, any news on the tournaments book you were planning?

Tournaments book still on the docket. Ultimate War first! Best guess on tournaments is probably late September or early October.

That was quite the rewarding purchase, and your thoughts on several spells mirrored my own, particularly regarding shapechange and horrid wilting.

One minor complaint, though. The Augment text for minor creation and major creation are hard to understand.

Also, mythic magic jar kind of underwhelms. It'd be cool if I could wander more than 300 feet without worrying about being killed by dispel magic.

Here is my reading of Augmented Mythic Minor/Major Creation:

The non-augmented version increases either the duration or the volume, but not both. Without the augmentation, it either has a longer duration but the same volume as the nonmythic version, or an improved volume but the same duration as the nonmythic version.
When you augment it, you get both the improved volume and the improved duration.
The key words are "or" in the non-augmented description and "and" in the augmented description.

That's my recollection of the intended meaning as well.

Thanks for picking it up and glad you enjoyed it. Thanks also for the feedback. We are not so arrogant to imagine we could not do things better, and as we prepare the final text for the Mythic Spell Compendium over the next months we may revise some spells we'll likely take customer feedback into account in reconsidering a few things.

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

All good points. Also, how soon are you going to be running that part of the adventure?

I ask because, if you're looking for a mighty tough pirate king's fort, you might want to take a look at the upcoming Fort Scurvy from Legendary Games, which should be available sometime after GenCon.

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

Sounds like great fun. A pirate campaign is really an ideal spot for adventure plug-ins because they're so versatile and easy to drop in either as-is or with tweaking to fit the particular vision you have for your campaign, and that shows in how you've weaved all of those together.

I will also note that Islands of Plunder: Raid on the Emperor's Hand is coming out in early August, so you may have one more adventure to weave into your narrative plan. That is, if your PCs like plundering ships that have run aground in a dangerous spot, with a race against time to get their first and claim it for their own! Is that the Dominator on the horizon? I HATE THOSE GUYS!!!

Fair point. I forgot all about her. *sigh*

Would've been a nice CR fit for this product, too. Alas. We'll find a place for her at some point, I am sure.

Hey look, one of our previews has come true!

BEHOLD - MYTHIC MONSTERS: MONSTROUS HUMANOIDS!

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

The product you're contemplating is Mythic Magic: Core Spells, also available here at the Paizo store which has all 418 spells from the core rulebook that are not in the Mythic Adventures book, with authors that worked on the spells in the official book. Check the reviews - three five-star marks including from Endzeitgeist (and one person who did not like it a bit).

We did complete a Kickstarter earlier this year to produce three mythic hardbacks, including a Mythic Spell Compendium that will include mythic versions of all the spells in the other core books and more, but for people not involved with the Kickstarter (or who just don't want to wait), we will also be producing several new Mythic Magic supplements to cover the other core rulebooks.

As a side note, in addition to the mythic spells themselves, Mythic Magic: Core Spells also includes comprehensive spell lists with bookmarked references for cleric domains and sorcerer bloodlines, as well as several mythic feats and path abilities that help you get more mythic spells!

All of them like solid, though there are a couple issues you might want to consider:

Quote:
Bloody Recovery (Ex): When the villain is damaged by an effect that reduces it below one-half its normal hit points, or when an opponent confirms a critical hit against the villain, it gains fast healing equal to its mythic rank or tier for 1 minute. In addition, if it is affected by an ongoing effect that allows a saving throw, it can attempt a new saving throw to end the effect. If it is affected by an ongoing effect that does not allow a saving throw, it has a 50% chance to end that effect.
This looks similar to the abilities elite monsters in 4e have (elite monsters are 'special' monsters which are twice as powerful as a normal monster of the same level--almost all have abilities which trigger when they are lowered to half-maximum hit-points).

Sure, and if an idea has merit for the purpose we want to use it, then by all means let's use it. Edition wars are so 2008. :)

137ben wrote:
One oddity it creates is what happens when someone with this ability ends combat at, say, exactly half max. Now, it is in that character's interest to take a single point of possibly self-inflicted damage before the next combat, gaining between 10 and 100 hp from the fast healing. This isn't necessarily an issue, since by the time this would come up out-of-combat healing is extremely cheap, but some people might find gaining an advantage from taking damage strange. If you only intend for this ability to be used by NPCs, you could eliminate that possibility by giving it a daily limit. A daily limit would, however, make it a rather poor option for a PC without further changes.

The entire book is a GM resource for the villains in the campaign, regardless of whether those villains are mustachio-twirling bad guys or crusading do-gooders in an evil game. The relevant point is that they are antagonists to the PCs and this product is designed to help them not get rolled over. The GM never needs to worry about min-maxing against him/herself. :)

Do abilities which increase your critical multiplier affect how much mythic power is drained?

Whatever your critical multiplier is, by whatever means it gets there; that's what it does.

And one more look at what your villains SHOULD be doing to beat those dastardly heroes! - PREVIEW UNLUCKY 13!

Osirion RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

LOOOOOOTTTT!!!!

As an aside, the items marked with asterisks above are the items that deal with guns or gunpowder in some way. That is, enough to give them a nice bit of attention but not so much that people who would rather exclude such things from their Pathfinder game can't easily ignore them in favor of the great majority of other items out there.

P.S. YARRRRR!!!
