The MYTHIC MANIA PDFs are available in 3... 2... 1... NOW!!!

The Mythic Monster Manual is available NOW exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore, as will the Mythic Hero's Handbook later today after a final tweak.

The Mythic Spell Compendium is available NOW exclusively at the Legendary Games webstore and the Kobold Press webstore!

You can also do your print and print/PDF bundle preorders now! All three will go on sale in wide release starting next Friday for MYTHIC MAYDAY through all of our usual sales partners at Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and the Open Gaming Store, but this week is just you and the creative team that brought you these amazing books. Ask any backer. These books will blow you away. They are a fantastic resource even if you don't play a full-on mythic campaign. If you want to take your Pathfinder game up another notch, get them. NOW! You will not be sorry.

Thanks to every backer and contributor who made these books a reality. Every bit of your efforts, no matter how large or how small, made this amazing project happen. And now let the Mythic Mania commence for EVERYONE!

Thanks so much for the kind words, El Ronza.

We poured an awful lot of blood, sweat, and tears (while leaving room for your players' tears as well!) into these books, and I'm very proud of what we've been able to accomplish. We had great partners in writing and artwork, and I should give a special shout-out to our talented layout artists. The immense size of this project means that everything was a lot more complicated in terms of layout and making sure everything worked right - over 2000 spells, over 1000 feats, over 220 monsters, and that's just the basic nuts and bolts, with a gazillion bookmarks and hyperlinks (internal and external). My hairline probably receded about an inch a month so far this year just going back over and over these files, trying to make sure that with well over half a million words that every one of them was right, every picture and punctuation mark was where it was supposed to be, and on down the list. And every time something needed a fix, it was back to the well for the layout guys. These three are well deserving of the title of mythic heroes:

Richard Kunz put together the Mythic Monster Manual, Rick Hershey the Mythic Spell Compendium, and Reece Ambrose the Mythic Hero's Handbook. Reece also designed the cover logos and layouts and page treatments that we used for all three books. Layout artists are kind of the unsung heroes of any RPG product. You can have great words and nice art, but somebody to put it all together and make it shine is a great member of the team, and deserve a hearty round of applause!

The Mythic Hero's Handbook, Mythic Monster Manual, and Mythic Spell Compendium PDFs have been sent out to our Kickstarter backers, which means we are ready to begin offering them for sale to non-backers, along with preorders for the print version and print/PDF bundles!

Exclusive one-week presale! Starting this Friday, April 24, the PDFs for all three books will be available for purchase and download from the independent publishers who created these books! If you didn't back the Kickstarter, you can get all three at the Legendary Games webstore and from our partners at Kobold Press (Mythic Spell Compendium), and Rogue Genius Games (Mythic Hero's Handbook) before they are available anywhere else! You also get to support the companies that made these magnificent mythic manuals manifest! We love all our sales partners, but buying directly from your independent companies puts more money in the hands of content creators. If you always buy from an outside vendor, then by all means keep buying, but we invite you to consider making your purchase directly from us!

You can also preorder print copies and print/PDF bundles for each book. Print books are expected to arrive in late June, and preordered books will be sent via Fulfillment by Amazon once all Kickstarter backer copies have been shipped.

Wide Release for MYTHIC MAY DAY!!! Starting on Friday, May 1st, the PDFs for all three books will be available right here at Paizo.com as well as through our sales partners like the Open Gaming Store and DrivethruRPG! Print books and print/PDF bundles will also be available for preorder as above at Paizo and the Open Gaming Store; the PDFs will be ready for immediate download and the books will be shipped after backer orders. Print books will be available directly from amazon.com as well once the books arrive, though will not be available for preorder.

I'm interested in the Patreon model, as it seems to work well for plenty of folks, but this is also an experiment. If we find that using Patreon makes things harder instead of easier, we'll continue looking at other options to make LG subscriptions work best for us and our customers.

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

Yep, just got the finals back, but we discovered one of our backers' names was missing from the list! Honoring the contribution of every backer is important to us, so I've send a note to Reece and he should be able to add that in and have it ready for download sometime later today!

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

I'm looking at it from the publisher side so I'm not sure what you see on the backer side. Anyone else want to chime in on what you should be seeing as a Patreon backer?

Wow, I am SO far behind on keeping this updated! So, two weeks ago we brought you Mythic Minis 60: Legendary Item Abilities, with five new legendary item properties for your mythic heroes to imbue into their signature gear: inestimable beauty, mighty servant, resonant regalia, soul drinker, and soul safe!

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

Sounds like a great campaign, guys. Having played in Baria and Savage Tide with James as GM, I can attest that as a GM he's definitely one of those Top Men.

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

The agile enhancement lets you add your Dex instead of Str to damage. It's a +1 enhancement that can only be used on Weapon Finesse-able weapons. It was first published in the Pathfinder Society Field Guide.

I hope this means we'll get some AP plug in adventures for Iron Gods. I've made great use of the ones for Kingmaker and soon will be doing so for Wrath.

We've got two in the queue in various stages of completion:

Starfall by Tom Phillips and Mike Welham - a high-level adventure featuring a decaying satellite and alien explorers whose researches have awakened a danger far greater than they knew. Available March 2015.

Scorpions of Perdition by Nic Logue - a low/mid-level adventure focused on strange happenings in a mining colony in the Land of Savage Science infiltrated by mysterious hunters from beyond! Available April 2015.

Nic Logue and mysterious hunters from beyond? Shut up and take my money! :)
Any updates on these?

Just chatted with Nick yesterday. He should be turning over maps next week and his manuscript probably in early May. Art for this book is done (and Nick was very enthusiastic about it - really captured his vision).

Talked with Tom and Mike as well, and their target for completion has moved toward around May 1st, so if all goes well we should have both available in time for PaizoCon.

As far as I understand it, you get charged only in months when new products are added, so you get charged nothing for those products in other months.

How that works with products that already exist I'm still checking with the Patreon people. It would make the most sense if you just paid each time you downloaded a project from the Patreon page. This is our first venture with them, so we may tweak things a bit as we get the hang of how it works for us and for you.

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

Glad you enjoyed the Hungry Storm and the plug-in adventures from Legendary Games!

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

Thanks for the feedback. We'll keep it in mind as we've got a couple of adventures very close to release for our Metal Gods AP Plug-Ins line!

Tomb Raiders brings you four delightfully detailed NPC parties of rascals and rivals, every one with its own unique flavor and tactics for antagonizing your heroes and becoming the guys they love to hate!

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

See you there!

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

Irovetti is supposed to be a retired adventurer himself, a johnny-come-lately to the Bandit Council who's had his own issues getting accepted by the more experienced River Kings. This was the emotional cue he played on in soliciting the PCs good will, that they were not so different and that they needed to stick together against the old guard who would rather see them squabble amongst themselves or just wipe them off the map.

Then again, Pitax is an established kingdom, whereas the Stolen Lands area was not. Mivon didn't really move into the area because as Brevoy exiles they probably liked not being right next door and preferred to have a buffer state in between themselves and the homeland. Pitax is the other established kingdom, but with Irovetti's takeover they weren't really in an expansionist mode. The sponsors of the kingdom charters in Kingmaker recruited some yokels to go quiet the bandit presence in the Stolen Lands, and if they managed to carve out a meaningful domain then so much the better.

One advantage of the kingdom-building rules is that it encourages you to take a long sweep of time, and let years pass throughout the course of the campaign. There is no ticking time bomb. As the PCs are scratching out their nascent kingdom, the Drelevs are establishing theirs and Varn his, and the far west crew is getting wiped out, and Pitax is stabilizing and extending their reach into Drelev and feeling out the PCs.

IMC Irovetti was a real rival, but not because he was evil. He was simply ambitious and wanted the same thing the PCs did - land, territory, and power. Add the fact that he was beguiled by a faerie lover that was whispering in his ear all kinds of suggestions to keep the area destabilized and he was not so much a villain as an antagonist. He can play charming and freely admit that he's a scoundrel, wearing it with pride, while pointing to the other WORSE scoundrels out there. He extends the hand of favor as the big brother, and you can verify that even among the other bandits he's something of an outsider just as you are. That doesn't prove his trustworthiness, but it proves that at least SOME of what he has told you is true, and that he has good reason to be more concerned about other rivals and not so much about you.

Even when Drelev collapses, he can be part of a land grab with every legitimate gripe that Drelev was double-dealing with him too, and in the River Kingdoms you have what you hold. Just because the PCs took down Drelev the man doesn't mean they automatically inherit all of his lands. If Drelev can't hold it, then it's fair game for all takers. Nothing personal, just business.

In sum, you just have to establish Irovetti as a rational actor, so that he's not so much trustworthy as (apparently) predictable. The PCs know he's a scoundrel and he doesn't try to hide it. Since he's up front about it, the PCs learn to take him at face value. That's when you know the setup is complete and it's time to set his scheme in motion.

In the original manuscripts, Irovetti and his palace were built rather differently mechanically speaking, and he was not actually evil. His involvement in the doings of Book 4 was far subtler. The final published version very much telegraphs "Hi, this guy is a BAD GUY" and that does tend to undermine any sort of surprise value in his plan.

When I ran it in my home campaign (with Irovetti as a 16th level Arcane Duelist bard FWIW), the players for much of the adventure were just about convinced that the real Irovetti had been kidnapped and that his advisors (led by Nunzio Arpaia) had staged a coup.

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

Ha, "I disbelieve!" Well done.

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

No problem - it just sort of slipped off the radar screen as other things piled up.

The Mythic Spell Compendium and Mythic Monster Manual PDFs from the MYTHIC MANIA Kickstarter have been sent to backers, and the Mythic Hero's Handbook should follow within the next week!

If you were a backer of the MYTHIC MANIA Kickstarter, rejoice at nearly 600 pages of new reading material (with another 336 to come)! While you're at it, give yourselves a pat on the back for making it happen, and for showing that big-time 3PP team-up projects can work! The hardback books should be arriving around the middle of June, so backers should have theirs in hand by early July.

If you were not a backer, right now you can just look on with envy, but don't despair! We've been surveying our backers and thus far the overwhelming majority are in favor of us going ahead with PDF sales to the general public this month, once we make sure our backers have the goods well in hand. We will most likely accept print preorders as well, though those will not be fulfilled until after all backers have been sent their copies. If you preorder a print/PDF bundle, you'll be able to download the PDF version right away.

The release date for general sale on the MYTHIC MANIA PDFs is still pending, as we await the release of the third book in PDF, but we'll keep you posted on when general sale and print preorders will begin.

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

For all the reviewers out there, I'd also like to point out that any Legendary Games products that are available in print are also available on amazon.com, and we would be delighted if you could crosspost your review on Amazon as well. It's often hard for small publishers to get noticed there, and every review or rating helps!

Yep, some of what became this product just sprang out of a series of "dialed-up-to-11" Boomer ideas he posted on Tumblr. We were talking about it and decided to expand the whole thing and make it even bigger and turn it into a product. If you'd like a sneak peek at the stuff you'll find in here, check it out!
