Epic Legacy: The 5th Edition Game beyond 20th Level
Advance your 5th Edition game to 30th level with new spells, items, and monsters. Rise to new heights of play through Epic Adventure!
Epic Legacy contains everything players and Dungeon Masters need to add another 10 levels of adventure to their 5th Edition game in a gloriously-illustrated, thoroughly-tested, professionally-formatted book of more than 250 pages. We've expanded play at all stages from unique-but-thematic advancement of all twelve character classes up to 30th level and world-crushing monsters of legend, to sugestions and guides for telling an epic tale and seamlessly incorporating Epic progression into your personal game.
Epic spellcasting adds more than just damage dice, with powerful spells allowing you to conjure an elemental megalith, create a storm of devastation a mile wide, or turn aside the mightiest of blows with a word. Epic Feats allow you to customize your characters even further, training them to wield massive weapons one-handed, create an academy to train disciples or even a personal army, or become so proficient at concentrating on spells that they persist even while unconscious.
For Dungeon Masters
New Mythic Monsters put players to the test, requiring clever and thoughtful use of their newly earned world-shattering abilities if they want to survive. The extensive “How to run an Epic Campaign” section will help you transition your current world seamlessly to an epic game, or even start a new game at 21st level. This section also provides multiple frameworks for different types of games, ranging from making epic the new normal to having your players be the very first characters to reach 21st level, and everything in between.
2CGaming has worked tirelessly to develop a playable beta-test of Epic Legacy to bring to the table. We'd love to hear and see your reviews of the following features of Epic Legacy! The Open Beta includes:
1. Five of the Twelve Character Classes from 21st to 26th level
- The Ascendant (Epic Cleric)
- The Primordial (Epic Druid)
- The Dreadnought (Epic Fighter)
- The Grifter (Epic Rogue)
- The Archmage (Epic Wizard)
2. Thirty-Five (35) Epic Spells for a variety of classes
3. Twenty-Seven (27) Epic Feats for all classes
4. Six Mythic Monsters, of challenge Epic 1 through Epic 6
5. Epic Combat - new mechanics and conditions for Epic Characters.
Please note that contents, mechanics, art, editing, and formatting are all subject to change (we certainly expect revisions!). This is merely intended to give you an idea of what we're developing!

We're excited to bring you Epic Legacy, and we've got some awesome ideas to build on and expand the core of the project. If we reach these stretch goals, we’ll bring you more content and more beautiful artwork.
LOCKED - A new element of Epic Legacy becomes available: Mythic Artifacts. These items of world-shattering power make their appearance as astounding equipment for players worthy of their potency. This stretch goal will include roughly 15 pages of Mythic items and details for their creation and use in your Epic World. Included with each is extensive background lore, giving each item an epic story of its own, a unique attunement process that will challenge even the mightiest heroes to unlock its full potential, and abilities to save worlds from disaster… or bring them to their knees.
LOCKED - An epic infusion of professional art that adds glorious pictures of spells, monsters, and many other features. With 12 additional character sketches and three additional full-page spell illustrations, what's not to love? We think the artists we're working with produce amazing work and are sure you'll agree. More art means a visually astounding addition to an already gorgeous book.
LOCKED - At this stretch goal, we'll unlock a Kickstarter-Backer-Exclusive cover for Epic Legacy by none other than the legendary Wayne Reynolds, cover-artist for many of WotC's books and projects. We're excited to be able to bring our backers exclusive high quality content that makes their copies of Epic Legacy uniquely beautiful.
Mr. Reynold's development of this cover is provisional upon successful funding of this stretch goal.
LOCKED - We delve deeply into forgotten lore to uncover even more Mythic Monsters for you to face in battle. This will add 10 worthy challenges to the current pool of monsters for a total of 30, along with minions, lore, and allies of these magnificent and horrible creatures for you to cut your teeth on.
LOCKED - All Mythic Monsters get a day at the spa and come back fully refurbished, illustrated in glorious full-color to strike fear into the hearts of even the most stalwart party.
If we close in on the $50,000 mark, we will reach out to you, our backers, to get an idea of what you're most interested in! We have some exciting additional directions for the project, but really want to know what you'd love to see!
We've come up with some ideas of what Epic characters look like, but we'd love to see what you think up! If you whip up a version of one of our Iconic character, tweet it @2cgaming. When we hit the listed goals of characters, we'll include additional art for that character in Epic Legacy!
Each character below links to the character descriptions, concept art, and art our artists have created for Epic Legacy for your reference.
Notes: We're going to be sharing this art with the community! We'll only consider the first piece submitted by each artist towards the total required to unlock bonus art in Epic Legacy, but if you draw more, we'd love to see it!
Ryan Servis, author and project lead for Epic Legacy, has been working excessively for the past 6 months to bring the Epic Legacy Beta to light. With a bachelors in Political Theory and an experienced practitioner in caffeine-o-mancy, Ryan turns his academic critical eye to anything he puts his mind to.
He spends his days wandering amidst towering stacks of 3rd Edition D&D Books, or on twitter at @Icepickun.
Nolan N. Nasser, a freelance illustrator and concept artist from Grand Rapids, began working in the gaming industry roughly three years ago as the artist for TCGplayer’s MaxPoint Author Tokens. He has since taken on work for companies such as Greater Than Games and more-recently adopted the role of Art Director for 2CGaming. Reveling in the idea of creating characters and developing worlds his passion for stories and gaming fuels his passion for art.
Check out his work at n3art.com.
Daniel Kamarudin (better known online as theDURRRRIAN) is an artist of prodigious talent in the realm of dynamic action shots and gritty fantasy. He has been working with the 2CGaming team for several months now, delivering staggering quality and detail.
Jon Kelly, founder of 2CGaming, performs shady back-ally deals with artists, authors, and corporate partners that often end in blood-pacts and strange extra-geometrical tattoos. No one knows his role on 2CGaming's projects, but it is rumored that he does just enough of everything to keep the ship sailing.
Additionally, the project will leverage, to some degree, all members of the 2CGaming team, including Steven Gordon (Author), Ambrose Hoilman (Illustrator), Jeff Journey (Design Consultant), and Kadra Alvaro (Concept Artist).
About 15% of the overall project's funding has come directly from 2CGaming to develop the 80+ page Beta of the project (most of which will be included in the finished product!). We're extremely excited about this project and appreciate your support!
The amount we're campaigning for is certainly not trivial, but neither is the scope of the project we intend to create. The breakdown below shows exactly where the funding for this project will go:
Risks and challenges
Ryan Servis, author and project lead for Epic Legacy, has well over a decade of experience creating material for tabletop RPGs, with a specific emphasis on the creation and alteration of mechanics for Dungeons and Dragons. The 2CGaming team is passionate and dedicated to the craft. We love what we're bringing to life, and we want to share it with you.
As always, open communication is the key to crowdfunding, and we will be releasing updates both during and after the KickStarter campaign to keep you informed about what's going on behind the scenes at 2CGaming. Expect Kickstarter updates at least once monthly during development, and weekly updates on our website, www.2cgaming.com.
While this is our second Kickstarter project (our first, The Total Party Kill Handbook, launched in September, 2015), and we are in the process of fulfilling our first project ahead of schedule, the team for Epic Legacy has little to no overlap in responsibilities. We anticipate no impact on either Epic Legacy or The Total Party Kill Handbook.
During the last few months, we have also published two smaller booklets (The TPK Primers 1 & 2) in conjunction with a pair of gaming companies, ArcKnight and 5th Terrain, both of whom are active in the Kickstarter community. Our ability to create these additional products in addition to beating the schedule we put forth for The Total Party Kill Handbook we hope will alleviate any concerns regarding our ability to deliver on both of these projects.
Of course, the loss of core members of the team would detriment the project and it's delivery dates. We have worked with all associated with the project prior to this and each party has made it known that, in the case of emergency, we will work with them to find an alternate contributor performing at the same level or better.
As always, questions are appreciated! If you have any concerns, reach out to us via our website www.2cgaming.com/contactLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
