You'll find all manner of creatures from fantastical forests like gallant unicorns and playful pixies to gruesome green hags or the sinister bogeyman that haunt the highways and byways of the world. Among fairy tale creatures, the little leprechaun kings are full of bombastic blarney, but it is the endless wails of the terror banshee that haunts and hunts the lands In addition, we are proud to include the creations of Lewis Carroll in this product, as the jubjub bird, frumious bandersnatch, and of course the legendary jabberwock himself, as well as the bizarre but benevolent boojum snark. With bloodthirsty redcaps, fanciful faerie dragons, sinister will-o'-the-wisps and more, you'll find an awesome array of legendary beasts to tantalize and torment the heroes of your 5th Edition campaign!
Beasts of Legend: Fairy Tale Creatures is the latest installment in the Beasts of Legend series from Legendary Games, bringing you richly detailed and evocatively described monsters for the 5th Edition of the world's most famous roleplaying game, drawing upon the myths and legends of the real world and throughout the history of RPGs.

Updates on Legendary Planet, the Legendary Beginnings all-ages adventure series, the Aethera Campaign Setting, the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium and much, much more, plus exciting previews of:
- Upcoming Kickstarter projects!
Come for the prizes, stay for the fun, and meet the Legendary crew!
Who needs heroes when you can be VILLAINS! Check out the first preview for the upcoming Book of Exalted Darkness campaign setting project for 5E, launching this month!
This Decopunk compendium is a detailed campaign setting that caters to PCs running the gamut from antihero to omnicidal maniac, with companion adventures, rules for running evil PCs, and a bonus goal of an extra book for those lily-livered so-called heroes that would dare stand in their way. Check it out coming soon!
Long ago the world’s “heroes”–Tucker the Great & Co., The Order of the Shining Stone, and The Golden Redeemers–smote all of Askis’ evils, beating back corruption and nearly purging it from the planet. Centuries have passed since their victory and life has prospered, the modern world developing into a drone of well-meaning bureaucracy staffed by do-gooders and enjoyed by simpletons. All of their wonders are powered by a gift from deific beings that dwell in other realms, a substance known as inaequa that extends the lifespan of creatures with good in their hearts.
You, however, are not among them.
Your heart is as black as the night and twice as cold, the lengths to which you will go to achieve your goals much further than any of Askis’ weak-willed heroes would even consider. It is your destiny–no your right–to tear it all down, destroying civilization as a means to gain great power, exact terrible revenge, simply revel in the chaos of mayhem, or take the reigns of authority by force.
Our amazing Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium project is steadily striding towards 5 times its funding goal at $20,000 and beyond, bringing with it new occult options fit for forest-faring 5E heroes, adding to nearly 300 pages of adventures, character options, monster, magic items, spells, and expansive new rules for fey creatures and their influence on the world, along with royal tournaments, festivals, and more! Plus bonus goals just a few backers away, and new surprises from superfan GM Solspiral ahead as well! You can check out the latest Kickstarter update here; meanwhile, keep spreading the word to get even more 5E fans and Pathfinder players #IntoTheForest, and let's see how high these trees can grow in the final 10 days!
The Forest Kingdom Kickstarter is less than $150 away from its next stretch goal, and one of the things people always ask about Kickstarters is "Does it have HeroLab files?" At the moment, this project does not, but that very well might change; however, it got us to thinking about some questions:
Do you love using HeroLab, Fantasy Grounds, d20Pro, Roll20, RealmWorks, or a similar program?
Do you love Pathfinder and/or 5E?
Do you like earning cash money and/or free product?
That leads us to a bigger question, and that question is this:
The forest is the heart and lifeblood of fantasy, from sun-dappled fairy glades to tangled thickets infested with monsters, and if you are a fan of classic RPGs adventure, this one is for you! 3... 2... 1... LAUNCH!!!
This incredible accessory incorporates our entire series of River Kings/Kingdom-Building Adventure Path Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5th Edition, most of which have never been available in print before. In addition to classic LG adventures like Cold Mountain and Horns of the Hunted, you'll find marvelous monsters from the Boreal Bestiary and Coldwood Codex, magnificent magic items from Treasury of the Kingdom, ready-to-play characters from Conquering Heroes, and incredible new rules subsystems for fey in Faerie Mysteries and Faerie Passions. Stretch goals will provide not only enhanced artwork but also an ever-expanding bestiary of beasts of the wild. PLUS bonus goals also will bring you incredible never-before-seen content including new forest feats, archetypes and character options, as well as the long-awaited rules for royal tournaments and festivals of every kind! You also can add on copies of our award-winning kingdom-building and mass combat books like Ultimate Rulership, Ultimate Battle, Ultimate War, and Kingdoms for Pathfinder or 5E, or our classic Gothic Campaign Compendium if you want to add a taste of horror to the heart of the forest!
The book's final page count depends on stretch goals, but we expect it to end up around 280-300 pages, and almost all of the planned written content (including stretch goals) and artwork is already done, and we have artists standing ready to take on newly sponsored artwork chosen by YOU, should any of you wish to be dubbed Knights of the Woodland Realm or crowned as part of the Royal Court of the Forest!
This Kickstarter project runs through Monday, April 24th, but you want to get your pledge in TODAY, and help us spread the word. Please like, share, +1, retweet, and comment when you see us on social media to help spread the word and make sure everyone knows about this book. If you've got questions, let us know on Facebook, Google+, Twitter (@LegendaryGamesJ), the Paizo messageboards, rpg.net, ENWorld, or directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We appreciate the support of so many fans and friends and all you do to help make our work possible, and we hope you that this exciting new book will absolutely Make Your Game Legendary!
The wait is over, and now the tale can be told...

A number of folks have been asking if I'd do an AMA thread, and I said to myself, "Self, you should totally do that!"
This is Ask Jason Nelson ANYTHING, so it's not necessarily limited to just talking gaming (as in, hey, actually PLAYING games) or publishing or writing or whatever. If you've got questions about any of the products I've worked on for Paizo or Legendary Games or anyone else, future plans and products, or non-gaming stuff like sports, religion, history, or whatever else, fire away.

The question then, of course, is what else you'd love to see from the Legendary library updated to Starfinder rules, and what kinds of new products you'd like to see coming your way!
We are excited to debut today's latest supplement for urban and intrigue campaigns, Intrigue Archetypes! A true team effort, this 40-page extravaganza authored by N. Jolly, Jason Nelson, Clinton J. Boomer, Jonathan H. Keith, Julian Neale, and David N. Ross contains dozens of new archetypes, feats, class features, and more options for characters and campaigns delving into courtly intrigue or the seamy underbelly of the urban jungle! You can pick it up right now at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and Amazon!
Intrigue Archetypes is the perfect addition to any Pathfinder game set against a backdrop of courtly intrigue, clever manipulation, and urban decay, crime, and corruption. This 40-page class supplement features 10 incredible new archetypes replete with panache and flair, from the scheming priest and mastermind psychic to the trickshot sniper vigilante, wild card swashbuckler, spell hacker wizard, and cityscape hierophant druid. Each has an incredible array of unique and flavorful abilities that will make urban adventuring come to life like never before. You'll also find over two dozen new intrigue and urban-focused feats and alternate class features like arcanist exploits, magus arcana, and vigilante talents, plus the metallomancy of the clever coinmage prestige class. Capping it all off, we bring you The Grey Shadow, a vengeful vigilante ready to use as an ally or adversary for your urban PCs while showing off some of the fantastic new options in this book. Your characters may delve the deepest dungeons and traverse the widest wilderness, but the siren song of the city calls, and when it's time to answer your characters will be ready! Add Intrigue Archetypes to your Pathfinder campaign today and Make Your Game Legendary!
While Intrigue Archetypes delves into the amazing possibilities of the fantasy city, it also can be used in more modern campaigns and even those with a sci-fi flair, but for those who want a more explicitly technological take on that sci-fi/fantasy combination, however, next Monday we'll be unleashing the next of our incredible class compilations, Magitech Archtypes!
Magic and machinery are meet in magnificent ways with this incredible class supplement for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game! You'll find seven amazing archetypes that straddle the genres of sci-fi and fantasy, from the astrologer and engram channeler to the necrotech master, robot fighter, and penumbral arcanist! This book also includes a brand-new element for kineticist characters, the machine element, plus over 50 awesome infusions, wild talents, and more, from diesel heart and bloodrust infusion to construct hacker, technograft, mech synthesis, and forced reboot! Plus, new feats for technokineticists and technopaths of every kind! Whether you are adding a dash of sci-fi to your fantasy campaign or exploring a dead and blasted world peopled entirely with lifeless and deathless undead and constructs, you'll find tons of exciting options here for battling robotic overlords, interfacing with alien lostech, and making the power of the machine yours to command!
But wait, that's not all! We are continually expanding our virtual tabletop options, and the latest for you from Fantasy Grounds is the incredible Scorpions of Perdition, a sci-fi/fantasy/horror/western adventure by Alex Riggs and Nicolas Logue, now available for virtual use for Pathfinder and coming soon for 5E! Head on over to Fantasy Grounds and grab your copy today!
In Legendary Planet news, we are putting the finishing touches on Confederates of the Shattered Zone (5E) in layout this weekend and should have that ready to go for our backers next week, and we'll be rolling right into layout on Dead Vault Descent for Pathfinder. Dead Vault Descent (5E) is in the conversion process right now, but should be ready soon thereafter, hopefully by the end of February.
Last but not least, Paizo Inc. has just formally released the first wave of product announcements for the upcoming Starfinder Roleplaying Game, including the Starfinder Compatibility License. Legendary Games has, of course, signed up for that license and will be preparing an array of Starfinder-compatible products once the game is released, including a Starfinder version of the Legendary Planet adventure saga, and much, much more! If you've got requests for Starfinder products that you'd love to see from LG, let us know, and we'll be sure to Make the Stars Legendary!

What would you like to know more about? Ask a question and get a preview!
We've been hard at work in the word mines and layout factories here at Legendary Games getting things ready for you. We've been putting a lot of resources into tying up the next couple of adventures in the Legendary Planet Adventure Path, with the Pathfinder version of Richard Pett's Confederates of the Shattered Zone going out to Kickstarter backers last weekend (and on track for wide release next month) and much more to come, including its 5E cousin and both versions of Matt Goodall's Dead Vault Descent. But that doesn't mean we don't have some other great new stuff coming your way, and the first preview for you is here!
This terrific new book by Legendary newcomer Ben Walklate brings the danger and intrigue of politics home to the kingdom your heroes have worked so hard to establish. They must successfully navigate the politics and rivalries of other power brokers, political groups, pious religious institutions, merchant councils, and more. Check out the product preview and get ready for this book to arrive THIS FRIDAY!
The sultan’s grand vizier is secretly plotting against him with other members of the court. The guilds are trying to bully small businesses. The neighboring country have spies in the palace. The city guard in the capital are under the pay of the thieves’ guild. The local druid circle aren’t happy about all the farms being built, or the woodcutting in the forest, and want the kingdom’s Councilor to help them persuade the king to put a stop to it.
All of these are themes from fantasy stories, but the core kingdom building rules introduced in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Campaign and expanded in Ultimate Rulership from Legendary Games focus primarily on your heroes and the decisions they make as the ruling council of their own kingdom. With Ultimate Factions, we provide you with detailed rules for different political factions, religious sects, and any number of influential power brokers and wealthy elites devoted to rising up and seizing whatever they can hold. Your heroes may play off their rivals against one another and use their wits to consolidate their own power and secure their throne from threats that can't be defeated by sword or spell. In the great game of houses and thrones, your heroes must triumph!
This was an exciting year for the Legendary Games team, as we continued to broaden our reach and our product offerings. We published a total of 135 products, including 39 for 5th Edition and the remainder for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Some of these products were short PDFs and free supplements, but we still created over 100 full-size supplements, offering most in print as well as PDF, with a growing selection of our products available on virtual tabletops like d20Pro and Fantasy Grounds as well as on HeroLab! Legendary Games has published a huge array of products in the past year, including adventures, bestiaries, magic items, class supplements, setting material, and more, from 3-page Mythic Minis to the 300+ page Trail of the Apprentice Adventure Saga for Pathfinder and 5E.
The Trail of the Apprentice project is an adventure series aimed specifically at new and younger players, taking them from 1st to 5th level in a series of five adventures of growing complexity, helping them to learn not just the rules of the game but also the way to play a tabletop RPG. We launched this project with the aid of Kickstarter, funding at well over triple our initial goal and delivering the entire project in less than six months, including deluxe books, customized character sheets and swag, and character and creature cards. We have also used the Trail of the Apprentice saga and the growing Legendary Beginnings product line to host our first 5th Edition Summer Camp and to run mini-adventure delves at conventions. We are delighted to be part of growing the hobby and passing down the best games around to the next generation of gamers.
Legendary Games is an independent RPG publisher based in Seattle, Washington, but we are actively involved in the convention circuit, hosting booths and events at PaizoCon (including our second-annual massive multi-table Legendary Planet team event), GenCon, WolfCon, Gamehole Con, and the online AetherCon. We love getting in touch with fans directly and introducing them to our products, as well as sitting down and throwing dice with them! We are proud to offer support for many local conventions even when we cannot physically attend, and this year we provided prize support to 72 local cons (http://www.makeyourgamelegendary.com/cons/), as well as for RPG contests like Iron GM, the Four Horsemen Open at GenCon, and Here Be Monsters!
In 2016 we were able to finish up several long-running projects, including finalizing the HeroLab additions to our massive three-hardback expansion to the Pathfinder mythic rules (http://www.makeyourgamelegendary.com/products-page/mythic-plug-ins/), which we continue to support in our ongoing Mythic Monsters, Mythic Minis, and Mythic Magic product lines. We also delivered the cyberpunk/supers Hypercorps 2099 setting and companion adventures, including our first novella, An Undying Contract, and launched and funded the Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland expansion late this year.
Our last big project still in progress is the epic star-spanning Legendary Planet adventure saga, a sword-and-planet campaign for Pathfinder and 5E, featuring 100+ page adventures with bestiaries of new monsters, gazetteers of new worlds, new magic items, bonus articles, and an ongoing fiction saga to help flesh out the world. This ambitious project has gone more slowly than we would like, but with new additions to the development team we've managed to break through some logjams and are getting back on schedule, with an aim firmly in view of having the final hardback compilation available for GenCon 2017!
Legendary Games has a history of providing focused support on different campaign themes, with entire product lines devoted to Gothic Horror, Far East, Egyptian, Righteous Crusade, Metal Gods (sci-fi/fantasy), Pirate, Occult, Red Throne (urban intrigue), River Kings (and faerie forests), Mythos, and Winter-themed campaigns. These products are ideal supplements for the similarly themed official Adventure Paths from Paizo, Inc., but work equally well in any campaign that touches on the same genres. Our first Kickstarter project back in 2013 was the Gothic Campaign Compendium, taking 17 separate products combining them into a beautiful hardback. We are nearing completion on several more product lines, and we are definitely looking at running one or more similar projects to create hardback compilations for some of our other product lines in the new year.
We also are greatly expanding our offering of class-focused supplements for both heroes and villains. In addition to past heroic products focused on rogues, paladins, and swashbucklers, and villainous books dealing with antipaladins, evil clerics, and dark druids, 2016 brought us Legendary Kineticists and Legendary Vigilantes, plus Legendary Villains: Vigilantes. It also saw our first two hybrid classes, with the Kinetic Shinobi and Deadeye Hexer. We'll continue offering amazing class support in the new year, with Legendary Monks and Legendary Hybrids: Yakuza already in layout and Legendary Fighters, Legendary Gunslingers, Legendary Villains: Wicked Witches, and Legendary Hybrids: Doomguard coming soon thereafter. This is in addition to thematic class-focused products like Asian Archetypes: Martial and Asian Archetypes: Magical!
Adventures aplenty await as well, from The Hero's Ritual to On the Siberian Line, along with bestiaries like Mythic Monsters: Greek, Mythic Monsters: Middle East, and Mythic Monsters: Celtic, along with Beasts of Legend: Medium Monsters for when you want powerful monsters that aren't just high-level NPCs but also aren't titanic terrors twenty feet tall! Magic will also be found in plenty with terrific supplements like Treasury of the City and the Asian Spell Compendium!
A life of adventure doesn't begin and end in the dungeon, however, and we've long been huge fans of supporting the kingdom-building and mass combat system for Pathfinder. This year, we brought that same system to 5th Edition with Kingdoms (5E), and we have created 5E versions of our hit Ultimate Rulership, Ultimate Battle, and Ultimate War books. Of course, we're still expanding the system for Pathfinder as well, with Ultimate Factions in layout now and Ultimate Armies still on the docket for completion this year.
For gamers who enjoy a wide variety of systems, we are also pleased to announce that in 2017 we will be offering products for the Savage Worlds game system, starting with our series of pirate adventures. We've been looking forward to making our adventures available for this system.
To sum up, 2016 has been a tremendously productive year for Legendary Games. Even at that, we didn't complete everything we wanted to get done, but we are pleased with our progress and always keep our goals and our standards at the highest level. It's part of our core values as a company: Rule #1: We write what we want, how we want, when we want. Rule #2: Always Be Awesome. We've got a long history of working with incredibly talented and experienced writers, but this year we've also brought in some new contributors whose talents make up for a lack of experience. There is great diversity out there in the gaming world, and Legendary Games is happy to be a part of making sure that diversity shows up in the game industry as well, with authors and artists from all walks of life and all over the world.
Thanks to every one of our team for all their hard work in making our products Legendary, and to all of our customers for supporting us in the work we do. Happy gaming to all, and to all a great 2017!

New 5E Print Products in 2016
New Pathfinder Print Products in 2016
Sound the call to arms, it’s time to plunge your 5th Edition campaign into Ultimate War! This incredible 44-page compendium is the latest awesome expansion to the kingdom-building and mass-combat rules for 5E first introduced in Kingdoms (5E) and expanded in Ultimate Rulership (5E) and Ultimate Battle (5E), providing a richly immersive but still abstract integrated system for taking your traditional land battles into the skies above, across the seas beyond, and under the waves into the ocean depths without having to change systems.
Ultimate War brings you dozens of new vehicles, from traditional naval vessels like galleys and longships to ironclads and submersibles, alongside fantastic aerial vehicles from flying carpets and drogue wings to war rockets and solar sailers, with an array of specialized tactics and rules for dogfighting, ramming, strafing runs, flak, and more! We also bring you a ton of great material for siege warfare, including magical siege weapons and siege tactics from blockade to escalade! You’ll also get exciting new command boons like cornucopia, surgical strike, and falling dusk, and a elegant new system of modular unit construction and interaction, allowing you to design combined arms units capable of a little bit of everything. You can get this superb strategic supplement starting at just $9.99 at the Legendary Games webstore, Open Gaming Store, Paizo, DrivethruRPG, and soon at Amazon!
Well, it's not QUITE available yet, but the manuscript is finished and the book is in review by the team and on track for release next week. This hefty supplement will likely end up around 40-45 pages, and it plays with monkish tropes from the Far East as well as other parts of Asia, plus Western monastic traditions, from meditative disciplines and psychic powers to purely martial mastery with punishing power and superlative speed. For a bit of a preview:
Table of Contents
Honor and Vows
Ki and Psychic Power
You'll find within these pages 11 new archetypes for traditional and unchained monks, 10 new monk vows, qinggong monk rules for psychic and occult powers, nearly 3 dozen monk tattoos, and over 20 new monk feats. This incredible resource for monks by Jason Nelson, Clinton J. Boomer, and Jesse Benner will leave your monks salivating over the incredible options within.
Meanwhile, is there anything you've been craving for your Pathfinder monks, unchained or otherwise? We think we've presented a ton of delightful new options and abilities, including new uses for old favorites, but if you've got a question or idea let us know, and we'll see if we can preview some more excerpts from the book before its release!
It's a mighty and marvelous MECHANICAL Monday here at Legendary Games!
- Brand new for Pathfinder, "The Robot Summoner" presents the Steel Soul, a 20-level variant class based on the unchained summoner who wields the power of magical mechanics to unleash nanite swarms and robotic servants!
- Fresh off Endzeitgeist's 5-star seal of approval and commendation as one of the very best in this illustrious series, "Mythic Monsters: Robots" can be yours this week for just $2 as our TWO$DAY product of the week!
- The Hypercorps 2099 Wasteland Kickstarter continues, with another free 5E preview PDF! Check it out and consider backing the campaign!
Just to update you, Ultimate War (5E) is getting a few final tweaks in layout as we speak, while Legendary Planet: Confederates of the Shattered Zone is in layout now as well, with a ton of other new projects cascading toward completion!
Plus... we have a special secret sale coming next Monday. Get ready for 12/12/16, with savings you can treasure all season long!
As we are coming toward the close of another year ye olde spreadsheets are getting pretty full and we can see interesting trends about what people liked and what they didn't, and I just thought a few might be of interest. We aren't QUITE finished with 2016 yet, but I was a bit staggered to discover that, already in the first 11 months of 2016, Legendary Games has published 129 new products, including 5E conversions of existing Pathfinder products. That probably explains why when I'm doing taxes the layout folks are usually near the top. :)
As of this writing, we are at precisely 350 products in our catalog. Considering we had 2 products in our first year (2011) and maybe a dozen in 2012, the acceleration has been something else.
I switched over how I was doing my spreadsheets in 2014, so it would take some work to reconstruct best-seller lists for earlier years, but just for the sake of amusement, here were our Top 20 products from 2015 in terms of total sales (including PDF, hardcopy, VTT files, and HeroLab files; it does not include sales as part of a Kickstarter - maybe it should, but that's a calculation for another day):
TOP 20 FOR 2015
Best sellers for 2016? We'll find out in a month!
While we haven't released a formal Mythos AP Plug-Ins line with its own logo and style, we had originally created the Horror Plug-Ins line to cover both elements from the Horror Adventures book as well as the upcoming horror AP that is now in full swing.
However, while there's a lot of overlap between horror and mythos, they aren't quite identical, so we have created a separate product category for Mythos Plug-Ins! This includes some of our older products released in other product lines, including:
Gothic Grimoires: The Necrotic Verses
And now they have a brand-new cousin debuting today - the Tome of Madness by Mike Shel!
A brand-new and horrifying product is here for anyone wanting to bring insanity to center stage in their Pathfinder game: The TOME OF MADNESS by Mike Shel!
This awesome supplement has over three dozen types of madness and maladies that are intriguing and exciting but still let you play as a functional character, whether for PCs or NPCs! Plus expanded rules on curing insanity and addiction by magic or alchemy!
Keep an eye out for more new mythos products perfect for use with this creeptastic Cthulhoid saga!
