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!
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!
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!
That was one of my favorite bits in the book.

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."

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!
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"!
But wait, there's even more awesome stuff coming your way!
- 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.
Plus, if you haven't already got it, get an amazing deal on a killer collection of 3PP products as part of the "Get Endy to Indy" bundle, and help support one of the most tireless supporters of the RPG community on the web!
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.
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.
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 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!

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."
