Never be afraid to become something larger than yourself!

Through the eyes of your brothers you can see forever!

The call to glory beckons you!

Are you brave enough for the Legion?

Two years ago, we started a project to make a science-fiction fantasy role-playing game that we would enjoy playing. Based on our love of many movies, books, and video games, we came up with Legion. We have tested the rules and made many changes from the original concept all thanks to our friends and fans. Now it is time to take the next step: the production of our core rulebook and the launching of other supplement books. We need your help with in doing this.

What is Legion?
Legion is a science fiction fantasy role-playing game where you take on the role of a soldier in the United Defense Force to protect the galaxy from threats. A military based game of high fantasy, Legion has a space opera setting of multiple possibilities with the discipline and drive of military focus.

The galaxy is made of worlds rife with alien creatures, star-spanning enemies, traitorous soldiers, and the re-born Shade. On these worlds, experienced soldiers are sorely needed, if only to hold back the enemy until the Legion arrives.

Thank you for looking over our Kickstarter Webpage. We would like to talk about some of the rewards we are offering. We have tried to come up with a great selection of rewards for everyone that will be supporting us. We feel that these rewards are fun and will be quality pieces that you will be excited to own. More importantly, as you go higher into the reward tiers, they will actually impact the universe that we have created. We hope that being able to have a piece of you interjected into the game will spark your interest in Legion, so let’s look at the individual rewards for donating a little closer. Each reward is based off a rank within the military hierarchy and that rank will be afforded to you for future giveaways. These ranks will be used in future Kickstarter projects, if possible. Once you have donated at the Cadet level, if you contribute multiple times you will move up the rankings on our website and gain a promotion. This does not entitle you to future rewards that you do not donate for based on your rank. Please feel free to Like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/legionthegame and check us out at www.legionthegame.com as we get that site up and running at full capacity. On to the rewards!

Risks and challenges

What do we want to produce?
Our initial goal ($10,000) is the production and printing of 250 copies of a 410 page, hardcover, full color Legion Core Rulebook.

The money raised for this project will help fund the commissioning of quality art, the writing and editing of the material, and the printing of the books. At the same time, those who contribute will have the opportunity to offer input into the shape of the final product.
