• • • Miss the Kickstarter? No worries. Pre-Order Legendary Dragons HERE! • • •
Red dragons, black dragons, green dragons, gold dragons. They are great, but we’ve seen them before. What makes a dragon unique among all others of its kin? What is its history, what are its motivations, and most importantly, what makes it legendary? Legendary Dragons answers all this and much, much more!
Jetpack7 aims to bring back the mystery to Dragons and to make an "ordinary" Dragon encounter... extraordinary!
We’re cooking up content for your 5th Edition game! You’ll not only have brand new Legendary Dragons and their lore to throw at your players, but some new monsters, too!
- New Dragons
- New Wyverns
- New Drakes
- New Hydras
Not only will GMs and Players get 12+ Legendary Dragons (with the option for up to 20), we have some other dragon-related goodies that we are planning:
- New Kobolds
- New Dragon Races
- New Lairs
- Dragon Cults
- Dragon Riders
- Dragon Hunters
- Dragon Hunting Factions
- Dragon Hunting & Monster Hunting Economies
- New spell components you can only get by hunting Dragons
- Enhance existing spells with your new Dragon spell components
- Dragon hoard Items
- Dragon Tactics and how to use Dragons effectively in your game!

- And much, much more…
Legendary Dragons is estimated to be at least 100+ pages.

In our earlier supplements, we didn’t skimp on art. In fact, when Jetpack7 was created, we set out with a goal of having the best art in the industry!
In Legendary Dragons, you can bet on seeing many full-color, full-page, high-quality art pieces produced with the same care and attention as our other supplements.
Check out some of the Dragon related art we have done for other companies!
Legendary Dragons has some of the most experienced and talented industry vets working on it. Some familiar names and projects are listed here!

Published by Jetpack7: Gods and Goddesses and also Masters and Minions—both successfully funded on Kickstarter. Published and delivered to backers in 2017 and 2018.
• Due to several backer requests, we are opening up the option to increase your pledge amounts so that you can apply those funds towards add-ons later on in our Pledge Manager service, such as BackerKit. This is a short guide on how to add funds to your pledge, and what you can expect.
We also hope that this will help push us through a couple more stretch goals on our way to 20 total dragons!
An Important Note About Worldwide Shipping Costs for Add-ons of our Previous Books Only
Before we get into the how-to, it's important to note that our previous books are located in and will be shipped from the United States. What this means is that shipping will be more for these add-on items, but for our worldwide friends, we will subsidize a portion of this shipping cost in the Pledge Manager service such as Backerkit.
For example: The cost to ship Masters and Minions is $23 USD, but we will subsidize $10 of this cost, making your shipping $13. We did this on our last campaign with backer levels. Since we are definitely using a Pledge Manager like Backerkit this time around, we'll offer the discounts on the back end, rather than the front end.
To ship BOTH books outside of the US, it costs a total of $46, and they are shipped separately. Your cost for this is $26, as we subsidize $20 of that cost.
Bear in mind that there are different VAT rates for different EU countries, but most of them offer a reduced rate and UK is ZERO rate for books. Here is a chart for your reference.
Again, this book -- Legendary Dragons -- is "EU friendly" shipping. Our previous books are located in and shipped from the USA, so keep that in mind when choosing whether or not to add additional amounts to your pledges at this time.
• Increasing Your Pledge
1) When on Desktop visit the Legendary Dragons project page, then at the very top there is a green button with a link to Manage your pledge.
2) If using a Mobilebrowser, simply navigate to Legendary Dragons project and tap the green Manage your pledge button.
3) If using the Kickstarter App, tap Profile at the lower right. Then tap Legendary Dragons project. Scroll down to the level you backed and tap the button that says Manage your pledge.
• Add-on Costs for Previous Books and Additional Copies
••• Adding Additional Copies of Legendary Dragons:
If you wish to add additional copies of Legendary Dragons to your pledge to give as gifts, simply add $35 to your pledge amount **for each additional copy of Legendary Dragons you wish to purchase**. Also, the shipping on these additional books will vary from the chart we have in the main campaign storyline, but they will be "EU Friendly" shipping.
Bear in mind that these books will not ship until mid to late 2019, however, they will reach you in time for the 2019 Holiday season, making them the perfect gift for friends and family who love gaming or just love dragons in general. :)
••• For Copies of our Previous Books:
If you wish to add either Gods and Goddesses or Masters & Minions to your pledge, raise the pledge amount by $35 for either.
If you wish to add both books to your pledge, raise the pledge amount by $70.
- For example: If you pledged $40 for the Legendary Dragons Hardback + PDF, adding M&M or G&G will be $75 total. Adding BOTH M&M and G&G will be $110 total.
IMPORTANT: These copies of our previous books will not ship until after the survey has been sent: Approximately June-July 2019. If you want the copies now, please visit the www.jetpack7.com shop. If you do order from our website shop, worldwide shipping will not be subsidized due to the way our shop is set up.
• Other Add-ons
We plan on having our other Add-ons to have "EU Friendly" shipping, so these other add-ons (tee-shirts, playing cards, mugs, etc) will be managed ONLY by a Pledge Manager such as Backerkit at time of survey. Please do not add these amounts to your survey at this time, since the prices are estimates only (see below).
Jetpack7 also created books called Gods and Goddesses (published 2017) and Masters and Minions which successfully funded and shipped on Kickstarter in 2018. You can grab a copy of the books from our online store.
• Flip Through of Masters and Minions:

What is 5th Edition?
The 5th edition’s Basic Rules, a free PDF containing complete rules for play and a subset of the player and GM content from the core rulebooks, was released on July 3, 2014. The Starter Set was released on July 15, featuring a set of pre-generated characters, a set of instructions for basic play, and the adventure module Lost Mine of Phandelver. The Player’s Handbook was released on August 19, 2014. The 5th Edition Monster Manual was released on September 30, 2014. The Dungeon Master’s Guide was released on December 9, 2014. The edition returns to having only three core rule books, with the Player’s Handbook containing most major races and classes.
The publication of the System Reference Document (SRD) under the Open Game License (OGL) allowed other companies to use the rules to create their own variants of Dungeons & Dragons™, providing that they did not use anything Wizards of the Coast considered trade dress or signature content, known as “product identity” under the terms of the OGL.

All shipping will be calculated and charged separately through the pledge manager option after the campaign is over. All products will ship at the same time. If you should have any question about products and locations please private message us for more information.
IMPORTANT NOTE: "SHIPS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD" does not mean free shipping. It's Kickstarter's way of saying that backers anywhere can support this project. If you are outside the US and getting physical rewards, see below. Please also be aware that you are responsible for import duties, taxes, and brokerage fees, and that we must comply with international law and cannot mark your reward as a gift or as a zero-value item.
REWARD FULFILLMENT: Soon after this campaign ends, we will ask you to fill out a survey if you have NOT purchased a physical product. When we receive physical product from printer, we will then send out another survey for our backers of the book that needs to be shipped.
• • • • • IMPORTANT: Let us know as soon as possible if you have any address changes.
Here’s how PDFs are distributed: when a PDF reward is ready, we’ll put out a project update letting you know it is time to log on to your account on the Conceptopolis/Jetpack7 Shop and redeem your reward, which you will do for free with a coupon. The coupon code will be good for the email address associated with your kickstarter account only. If you have problems with this process, please email email@example.com
Physical products will be shipped upon our receipt of books. We guarantee a product will be in stock for you as one of your rewards for at least one year after the product's release date.
DOMESTIC SHIPPING: We offer USPS media mail shipping within the United States.
Risks and challenges
We successfully funded and fulfilled two Kickstarter projects; Gods and Goddesses in 2017 and Masters and Minions in 2018. Unforeseen challenges with Gods and Goddesses were delays associated with shipping books from overseas and delays in customs. We have since made vendor corrections and the process was much smoother for Masters and Minions.
Other possible risks are scheduling the additional material from stretch goals that may push out the delivery schedule on those items, or that one of our primary contributors encounters a production delay. We're a small, but very experienced team with over 1000 unique projects delivered for dozens of toy and video game corporations. Such an event could possibly delay (but not prevent) publication, or delivery of product.
Jetpack7 has no other Kickstarter projects outstanding. We have contributed and delivered content to nine successfully crowdfunded projects to date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
