Alas not before GenCon, but we'll have some print copies as a GenCon exclusive, and it should be able to go on sale sometime in August if all goes well.

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

The latest chapter of Legendary Planet is out to backers! We sent out download links this past weekend to our Pathfinder backers for this incredible 116-page adventure, packed with tons of bonus content, plus a 31-page Art and Map Folio. Our 5E playtest is still underway, and we should have that version available after GenCon, sometime in August.

In honor of this momentous release, we have made "Planetary Heroes" our TWO$DAY product of the week, so you can pick up 8 amazingly detailed interplanetary characters this week for just $2!

Check out the latest from Legendary!

I'm a backer for the 5th edition version but haven't seen anything yet. Is that normal?

Our 5E playtest got borked by scheduling and we were not able to get it done this month like we had hoped. We want to make sure everything works as it's supposed to and did not want to release the adventure without thoroughly vetting it, so we had to push back the 5E release until after GenCon.

Which reminds me, I need to send that KS update!

We've got a brand-new book of monsters out for 5E, bringing the proteans to 5th Edition and including a brand-new protean type, the mymm swarm, available right now: Beasts of Legend: Serpents of Chaos!

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

Glad you're enjoying it! This adventure did indeed come out a lot longer than expected, but that's the beauty of having your own publishing company: You can make things whatever length you want!

Kickstarters are funny beasts - some of them take much longer than expected. Others get turned around very quickly. From a KS project that wound up in late April, three months later we are done! Only print approvals and fulfillment remains.

Thanks to Paris Crenshaw, Mike Welham, Matt Goodall, Linda Zayas-Palmer and an army of amazing artists, developers, cartographers, and more, plus a yeoman's job of layout by Rick Kunz, and you've got an amazing 300-page compilation for Pathfinder and 5E going out to backers now! Thanks to all 334 of our backers and everyone else who liked, shared, or otherwise helped spread the word. This will be available to the general public next month, but for right now thanks to everyone who made this happen!

Check out the latest update right here!

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

I do like the idea of a vigilante code, and that's something people can certainly volunteer suggestions for iconic types of hero/antihero codes that you'd like to see.

PS - I sent Legendary Rogues and Assassins and Swashbucklers over to Jolly already. If you don't already have them, you should totally check them out!

(You can check out reviews for all of them right here at Paizo.)

For this MYTHIC MONDAY, we bring you not one, not two, but THREE terrific new products from Legendary Games!

- Legendary Assassins offers a great expansion to the assassin prestige class, opening up options for all classes and alignments.

- Cold Mountain (5E) is a fantastic 4th-level adventure for 5th Edition, taking heroes into the barbaric wilderness of the savage frontier to halt the spread of a deadly blood curse unleashed by a vengeful goddess.

And, of course...

- Mythic Minis 95: Clever Combat Feats II brings you 10 terrific mythic feats for foiling your foes in style!

Many more great books are coming your way this Friday, including a followup fey-themed adventure in Horns of the Hunted for 5E! Check out the latest right here!

The Legendary Assassin is still a 10 level prestige class, but I've opened it up so its a viable option for just about any class. Also, no alignment restrictions.

My favorite thing would be the inclusion of assassin talents that allow you to customize your character to the style of killing that best suits your style of play.

Also, the Assassin's Avatar feat, which allows an assassin with summoner levels to transfer her assassin abilities to her eidolon while sharing senses, for a number of rounds equal to her assassin class level.

That was one of my favorite bits in the book.

So Exposed Vigilante with Mystic Accuracy and Genius Vigilante is what I've always wanted and never known.

Exposed vigilante is another thing I'm shocked Paizo didn't make with the class, but what can you do? I was told by SEVERAL people to make mystic bolts better, and that is the result. Now deft shot also works on mystic bolts, but you can't get Mystic Accuracy+Genius Vigilante+deft shot, you have to pick 2.

Two new archetypes are coming up for this Saturday:

Mad scientist: Who wants bombs? Or mutagens? Or possibly a THIRD identity? There's a lot of stuff in here that should really bring a lot of joy to people who wanted to like the brute.

Inquisitive Detective: So all these archetypes modify vigilante talent and specialization, so why don't we make one that doesn't, and have it give inspiration instead?

Agreed on your first point, but then again the best design is the design that makes you slap yourself in the forehead and say, "Wait, you mean that wasn't already a thing? Because that should totally be a thing."

How is this going to work? Will you just release a free pdf, or there some form of sign up that needs to happen?
What I plan on doing myself (unless Jason N. has other plans for this) is to release the url for the google doc on which I'm working. That way, people can comment directly onto the doc as well as give feedback through the thread. I know sometimes reading over something I wish I could comment right away, so to me, this seems like the best way of doing things, although Jason N. should be letting me know their plans for this.

I am content to run the playtest cycle via Google Drive, though people can also post their thoughts and comments here. I'd love to be able to host the discussion on the LG website, but we've never been able to gte the messaging and posting function to work without getting an avalanche of spam within a day or two.

Legendary Games has produced quite a few class-based products, including Legendary Heroes books focused on paladins, rogues, swashbucklers, kineticists, and hybrid classes, as well as an assortment of villainous expansions focused on Antipaladins, Evil Clerics, and Dark Druids, with more products coming soon for fighters, gunslingers, assassins, and more.

However, we are about to start doing something entirely new. We have had our team working on a new book to be entitled Legendary Vigilantes, and given the many layers of complexity and intrigue around this class we really wanted to play around with some different ideas, and we have decided that for the first time Legendary Games is going to open up a public playtest! Stay tuned here for further information as we work to finalize the manuscript and get it into your hands to try out an awesome array of new and exciting options for vigilantes in your game.

Get ready to Make Your Vigilantes Legendary!

Well, perhaps they will have an SFRD or (StarFinder Reference Document) or something similar to the PRD?

They have I think confirmed they will be working with 3rd party folks, so I assume this will be the case.
The Starfinder team can neither confirm nor deny that they have either confirmed or denied an interest or already existing agreement to host core materials online as a resource document at this time. :P

They've talked to a number of 3PP folks about the possibilities ahead, but there is as yet no confirmation that I have seen about what shape or form a SFRD and/or compatibility license may take and how it will interact with the PRD and PF comp license.

It's a magnificent MYTHIC MONDAY for 5E and Pathfinder fans! For starters, we are proud to present Mythic Minis 94: Criminal Feats, for your characters who like to skirt the edges of what's precisely "legal"!

- A new horror-themed 5E adventure for 9th level characters, "Feasting at Lanterngeist"

- A double shot of Egyptian products coming later this week, "Ancient Curses" for Pathfinder and "Lost Library of Thoth" for 5E

- And the final climactic adventure in the Trail of the Apprentice saga, "The Wizard's Dungeon," is off to layout, with the Pathfinder version coming this week and the 5E version next week.

I've entrusted the project to Jolly and Team KOP so I'm fine with whichever way you decide to go on revising the damage progression (or not) on the Shinobi. That's the Legendary way - your name is on it, so make it awesome, but what you write is what you write and it flies or dies based on your creative vision.

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

Hi all - I sent Jolly and Onyx the final copy to make sure no editing artifacts cropped up and that everything is working as it should. They'll be reviewing it this weekend and if there are fixes to be made we'll get it loaded back up at the various sales sites (Paizo won't be updated until at least Monday because all uploaded files have to be manually approved by staff); anyone who has bought a copy will get a notice to redownload the corrected copy.

We appreciate all reviews, even if they aren't so favorable, as they help us notice things that might have slipped through and help us fix them and make our products Legendary!

...I feel like the Legendary Planet setting would mix in well. XD

It will indeed. Whether it as a product line will end up being made both PF Compatible and Starfinder-compatible is as yet undetermined, both on the technical rules side and also on the licensing/legal side.

But one way or another, there will most DEFINITELY be Legendary Planet (and the forthcoming Legendary Worlds campaign setting) for Starfinder.

If you are using Mythic and not making use of Legendary Games Mythic material you are, at least missing out, and probably shooting yourself in the foot.

Side note, why should Paizo work on Mythic when you have the LG supplements? No need to recreate the wheel.

Thanks for the kind words. I did have a conversation with someone in blue who expressed appreciation for us picking up the mythic torch and running with it.

I can't recommend Mythic Solutions enough. Since I have the Mythic Heroes Handbook, I don't have it as a standalone (since it's all in the big book), and haven't reviewed it (eep, still need to review MHH!), but the conclusion goes something like this:

Running a mythic game? Buy this. Now.

Ha, thanks!

I should point out that on Paizo you don't need to have purchased a product on this site to review it (you do on DrivethruRPG); if you've got a few quick thoughts you'd like to drop as a review for Mythic Solutions, by all means go for it!

Technically, I think Distant Shores offered some Mythic material. But yeah, I generally agree...overall, Paizo doesn't think - probably rightfully so - that mythic material is very popular, so at most they'll put out a little here and there, not provide a lot of support for new material.

The problem is that mythic stretches and breaks the limits of Pathfinder. Mythic made Wrath of the Righteous a walkthrough for our group, and with one exception, none of us are really the type to munchkin the system. In fact, I suspect that WOTR would have been better played by non-mythic characters.

It is incredibly hard to write for, especially once you get beyond the low level/low rank tiers. And if you try to write challenging encounters for high level mythic characters, you're into lethal rocket tag territory.

I really wanted to like mythic, and parts of it I do. And parts of it I will have fond memories of. I bought every mythic supplement that came out. But I don't know if I'll ever crack open the covers of them again.

For anyone feeling the same way, I invite you to check out Mythic Solutions for just 2.99. In it you'll find 20+ pages that thoroughly explores the challenges of mythic play, addressing specific problematic rules as well as general principles at work in mythic. We combine our own experience writing the original mythic manuscript, the final published version, writing close to 2000 pages of additional mythic material, and a close reading of messageboard commentary on all aspects of the mythic rules to develop a deep understanding of what works and what doesn't. We then boil that down into an analysis of key problem areas with explanations of how and why they are problematic (either by themselves or in combination with other things) and offer a modular set of fixes for each one, ranging from modest adjustments to total bans (foe-biter, I'm looking at you!) that you can use to tailor the level of mythic to suit your tastes. We priced it at just 2.99 because we think everyone who ever liked parts of mythic should get it, as we think it will help you look at mythic again with new eyes.

TL;DR - To quote Endzeitgeist's review, this is "the single most required pdf any group utilizing mythic rules can buy. Period. This book, in fact, is in my opinion just as crucial to mythic gameplay as the core book (and a healthy dose of LG-books) - this is the non-optional fix for the issues."
